    This is a place where we certainly won't visit again. We decided to enter this restaurant as we have never tried it before and all the other restaurants had long queue at the door. Food focusing on fig & olives is of course not common.

    We ordered Crisscut fries, Grilled Dory with Mushroom sauce, Figo Grilled Seafood (or seafood platter for 1). the mushroom sauce (note: the sauce only) and the crisscut fries were at least decent to taste though we have some reservations on the taste of the rice. Even though this place was called fig&olives, the olive rice was nothing much but spiced/buttered rice with a few pickled olives on top with not much of a taste too. The fish were cooked too oily though the texture was tender and well done.

    The seafood platter for 1 cost a whopping $21.30 and contained only 4 prawns and 3 mussels with a whole heap of rice. Certainly not worth the price. Not to mention that the waiters there took the wrong order, failed to respond to our calls and proceeded to bill us for the wrong order. They were certainly in a hurry and is only able to refill the plain water for whichever cup we gestured to even though all the rest of the cups beside it were empty too.

    I repeat again, definitely not worth a visit again. At least not this branch.

      One of the Kbox outlets with good services. Rooms (at least the few I've been in) are relatively clean and in good condition. We were usually urshered into rooms with ample space for us to move around and took photos just that the TV screen was ridiculously close to us such that we can be blinded when MTVs changes.

      The few times I've been there, there were quite a few pple walking around and smoking. Thats irritating but it should not affect the review on this outlet.

      List of songs as usual, awesome, of wide variety and quite easy to find the song we wanted. However they should really change the colour of the words. Had to scrint to decipher.

        Patronised this store for like twice, I quite like the setting though the deco is something similar to Ben & Jerry. The cheerful fonts and pictures makes eatting ice cream even more enjoyable.

        The first thing that striked me was the number of pretty shop assistants there. I wonder whether there was a criteria for looks when they interview shop assistants.

        The shop front was quite small and cramp. Luckily the tables and chairs were not in the shop itself but outside.

        There are consonier and premium (alcoholic) like Bitter Orange Choc, Whiskey Java Choc, Rum Rum Raisin etc. And normal flavours like Green tea-rrific, D24 durian etc.

        Though there are many flavours stated on the website but the number of flavours seems to be lesser at this branch. In any case, we tried the Marsh Choc and Bitter Orange Choc. Marsh Choc was obviously Marshmellow in Chocolate. Heavenly but sinful combination that cannot be eaten every day. It got us drooling for it though. Bitter Orange Choc was an interesting liquer flavour which did not have the irritating alcoholic smell. The taste of orange was nicely blended with the dark chocolate (hmm~~~~) ice cream the first time I tried it. But somehow, the taste of orange lessened on the 2nd try the next day. Taste of dark chocolate became too strong and the smell of liquer increased. I wonder what happened though this does not diminished my liking for it. Both flavours are silkenly smooth~~~

        I would like to try the Durian series the next time. But I wouldn't normally sit there to eat as I prefer buying the pint home. A pint cost $10.90 for the premium series and lesser for the normal (I forgot how much) series. A bit ex for frequent indulgence and it won't do much good for the waist too.

          We decide to go into this shop as we were quite tired of going to the same places to eat since we needed to go Plaza Sing at least once per week. Only with time for a quick lunch, we chose this place mainly because it has got dim sum which we can gobble at a fast pace.

          Not much of comment on the setting except that its rather dark. We very much regretted chosing this place due to the quality of the food. I will choose Crystal Jade anytime. We ordered Ha Gao, Glutinous Chicken, Yu Jiao and Prawn Zhu Chang Fen. We were extremely disappointed at the oily and lame texture of the Yu jiao where the yam paste will fall out and the skin seems like it was placed outside for too long. The prawns in the Zhu Chang Fen and Ha Gao had a distinctive prawny smell that told us the prawns were not fresh.

          Not sure whether it was due to the lunch time rush but we certainly didn't feel like going back for 2nd opinion after our lunch there.

            Although this was named as Astons Express
            but apparently was not very express as we often had to wait
            like 20 mins for our food. Meaning other colleagues who have
            started eating before us would have finished their food and
            sat there waiting for us before we start on ours. Hence usually we would order together if we want to eat Astons so that none have to wait. Still it eats into our time and reduced the time we would usually use for coffee elsewhere.

            Food was not bad, I've tried the Grilled fish with herbs or something.
            Fish was tender with no strange smell, the herb sauce was great too,
            compliments the fish meat and made it sweet. However it looks a bit
            lame on a damn big plate. Perhaps due to the light colour of the meat and sauce.
            The baked potato is a must try even if you are ordering as
            a side dish though many may dislike the flaky texture but the potato taste
            great~ (suspect they may have added something to add to the taste
            but I'm not sure what)


            A nice change from the normal food court food. Good to try once in a
            while but do get a seat before ordering as they want table no.
