“Yummy Asian food”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We were staying at the Horizon so decided to eat here on the first night, and were pleasantly surprised.
The food came in three different serving sizes so we ordered a couple of medium sized meals between the two of us, but should have just ordered a couple of small sized meals. They were huge and we couldn't get through them. The meals were great and very authentic. Very cheap too.

“Horizon's Silver Lining”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

The food was excellent. They serve up tze char in a Western style. Familiar dishes that we know as home cooked are given the touch and pizzaz of a chef's raging wok!

From the beef hotplate, to the crabs, to the silken toufou - every dish exceeded our expectations. Kudos to the chef. It wasn't crowded on the two occasions we dined there. Service was unobstrusive and quiet. Their colleagues in the hotel could learn a thing or two from them.

This restaurant was our silver lining in an otherwise grey cloud called Horizon Hotel.

“Super Delicious food”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We chanced upon this restaurant when we were waiting for our spa at South Sea Sanctuary and feeling like lunch. The ambience is beautiful & the service impeccable. The food was bursting with flavors and we could sense the ingredients were very fresh. The portions were very good. We ordered "small" portions and it was quite sufficient. The prices are very moderate. Loved it!!!
