“the drinks were good but restaurant average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

We go to other dome restaurants back home so thought we should try the one at guerney plaza. It wasnt the greatest service or atmosphere and certainly wasnt as clean as one would like. ( floating stuff in glass of water and sugar sachets that had been previously wet by drinks then returned to holder) I felt sorry for the guy who made the drinks (coffees, milkshakes and ic.e coffee) he did a really good job and obviously cared but the rest of the place let him down a bit.

“Poor Attitude fromStaff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

We went to Dome because frankly it was the only place that had a spare table - now we realise the reason for that. The service was poor - my husband took a photo of the 'restaurant' and was told by a member of staff that 'photos were not allowed' - are you serious it's a cafe not the Ritz. We ordered the Big Breakfast which looked nothing like the picture and was not a good meal. Nothing more to say - don't go there it is very poor. We now believe photos are not allowed as you can show them to others who can see howbad the place is ..........

“Very much disappointed this time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

I have always been a fan of dome for many years ago. Ever since my last encounter in Dec, I don't think I would want to give it another chance.
Salads were stale, vege wasn't fresh at all. Asked the waiter to replace the salad, I got a respond from him " our vege in the kitchen are the same "..
Soup came warm-cold., It was not hot. And the chicken pie, was totally horrible. No taste.
My dinner was a disaster with such awful untrained service crew.
Totally a NO!

“Familiar, cosy cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2011

Of the many franchises, Dome has always remained one of my fondest. Its food, coffee and ambience has always appealed to me.

“Please don't use recyled oil”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2009

We were visiting Penang for the first time. We thought that with Dome being so reliable back home in Singapore, we could rely on the same quality when in Penang. But to our disappointment, the breakfast we ordered appeared to have been cooked from recycled oil. The taste was stale. And to top it all, the butter given for the toast was spoilt. When opened, there was an orangey part against the yellow of the butter. You know how that happens? When butter has melted and it's put back in the fridge. When we showed the Dome service staff, there was not much a reaction but a replacement of another slab of butter.
