This restaurant started at the then Metropole Hotel in Seah Street and had moved to Vivo City and recently to River View Hotel where it is operating. At Seah street and Vivocity, they had a counter for a Physician to give you a health check before "prescribing" the curative dishes with the accompanying herbs that could cool you down or warm you up or nourish you if your body is neutral?? Great novelty but not practical as diners seldom come alone but in groups.
The dishes in Havelock Road premises appeared to be less delicious or savory. Either they have realigned the cooking process or change of chefs and kitchen crew or cook in newer methods that enhance the efficacy of the herbs.
Service staff is polite and responsive for a fine dining restaurant but apparently not attentive and understaff .
Complimentary parking can only be given after the subsequent patronage which is weird but must have their reasons.
Ambience is nice and pleasant at the River view Hotel.

I am a fan of this restaurant buffet. I have celebrated many special occasions in here. When it comes to festive seasons e.g. National day, Christmas etc where all the hotel buffets are fully booked, this is one that still have available seats because not much Singaporeans know about this place is a good choice actually. The food are value for money. After eating , you may like to have a stroll at the nice walkway towards Robertson Quay.

I booked this Hotel coz yes the location is great, but aside from that it has nothing more to offer. Rooms are smelly. When i checked in, a caucasian guy was asking a reception officer where is the best place to eat for that night, the staff cannot give an answer, (i think the staff does not understand the question coz she only speaks chinese).

We had a meal in the restaurant . I had bugger and chips and my partner had buffet. Good food. We also had a fab night watching Liverpool beat Manchester one night in outside bar area. The place was full of Liverpool supporters and atmosphere was fantastic. Never had so much fun watching a football match.
