    Went there for a facial promotion of $22 facial $8 for eye mask. Thought their service is not EXCELLENT but I found it to be not bad. Perhaps I was lucky and gotten the therapist whom was good? The therapist did ask me whether I wanted to add a $20 ampoule for collagen but when I said no, she did not push for me to buy. Touch was light and soothing, when I didn't want to talk, she didn't try to act friendly like a lot of therapist would.

    We were urshered to this room where the manager asked whether we would be interested in their facial packages. But when I mentioned I have packages elsewhere, she did not push more and instead introduced a promotional slimming package and offered to customize it for us.

    Though in the end my friend and I signed for the package, we did not felt that we were forced into it. Perhaps it was due to previous cases hence the service improved? In anyway, we just went for our first treatment yesterday and although my friend did not like her therapist who was from China and lack experience, mine was great but did try to act friendly with me.

    All in all, the service was not too bad, the atmosphere was great and space not crammed like some other facials I went to.

      Went to this place for lunch before going for a performance. Being a dessert lover, was attracted here by the replicas of the desserts outside the store. This place is noisy, being an enclosed area and people around talking loudly and a constant flow of customers.


      I ordered Beef Stew and Ichigo Milk Parfait. While my friends ordered the Beef curry rice and some mushroom pasta which I forgot the name.

      Soup base for the beef stew was tomato which was too sour for my liking. Though I will give a thumbs up for the beefy taste of the beef and its great texture. Other ingredients in the bowl are brocoli and carrots cooked just right to retain some crunchiness. I did not finish my bowl of pasta though, as the portion of pasta was too large with comparatively small portion of other ingredients.

      Beef curry was too sweet and taste just like any other curried rice. Nothing special.

      I did try some of the soup for the clear mushroom base pasta. Salty was the word and nothing else to it. Though the portion was upsized, it doesn't look like much cept for the taller bowl that made eating difficult.

      Ichigo Milk Parfait saved the day with the Milky ice cream not too sweet, creamily smooth (yum yum~~) and blended well with the sweet ichigo lined on top. However, the pool of ichigo sauce at the bottom of the cup spoils a little for me as the concentration was too sweet to eat with the cornflakes. Without this, this dessert would be perfect~

      Service of the restaurant was not so desired though. The male service crew kept appearing behind me (towered over me) though he could have stood at the side of our table and we could hear him well (vice versa). Got a shocked from him on several occasions plus the fact I was wearing a dress with low V cutting added to the annoyance.

      Nevertheless, menu was quite extensive and we were spoiled for choices. Will definitely visit again to try its other kinds of pasta and of course the ichigo milk parfait ;D

        This restaurant is attached to the Party World KTV at Shenton way. Though been to the KTV for many times, this is the first time We went to this restaurant for dinner. Went with a group of girlfriends for Hen's Party.

        There were very few customers there. Inclusive of us, there were only 3 tables of customers.

        If you want cheap food in big portions, this is the right place to come to. Food types are a mixture of Western food (e.g steak, fish, chicken cutlet), Chinese (e.g Stir Fried Vege, Tzu2 Cha4) and Malay (e.g Fish head curry). Purchase the set meal to get also, salad, soup, drink and dessert. Soup and dessert are free flow. The set I ordered was steak and it only cost me approx $14 .

        Wanted the steak to be well done and it came as well done, with the meat not too tough and enough of the "beefy" taste that I would like my steak to have. Salad was fresh though it seems a bit strange to have Watercress soup with steak. Taste of the soup I've heard, was great. So great that my friend had 3 helpings of it.

        The place look a bit sleazy since it was attached with the KTV but nevertheless, a great place to have a quiet dinner with friends (unless you're down on your luck and met people having a Hen's Party there) at budget cost.

          Went to this restaurant for the first time due to a friend's craving for its “梦幻黑猪”... we went in quite late as it was after a performance at about 930pm and the last order was at 10pm. The restaurant was still quite crowded then. We were urshered to an almost empty area.

          Space usage was quite poor as the place was quite cramped. 5 mins from sitting down, we changed places as the aircon was leaking water. No black face from the waitor though no smiles too.

          We were not rushed into making up our mind even though its only like 20 mins left to closing the till. I ordered this Hakodate Shio Ramen and was extremely satisfied by it. The shio soup base was unique, not too heavy nor too light. Blended well with the saltish meat. However, the meat will be too salty to be tasted alone though those who love heavier taste would love it.

          Also ordered the Edamame which came hot and covered with shio. Tasted wonderful though the salt proved to be too much when we came to the bottom of the bowl.

          My husband ordered Beef Curry Rice. Contrary to other places' curry, we could taste beef in the curry itself. Meaning they either used beef stock as one of the ingredients or cooked the beef in the curry. I would like to order that the next time I'm there.

          Overall, we were quite satisfied with our meal there. But it could be because we were all famished from having no dinner and a tiring performance and rehearsals. Should definitely visit there again as there are more to be tried out.

            This is about the most value for money steamboat I've tried before.

            There are 2 branches which are located just a few shops apart. The orange colour themed branch seems to be the more popular choice which I supposed was due to the atmosphere and the fact that its newer.

            Variety was wide. but only limited to a portion of the menu if you order buffet. There are about 5 types of soup base and you can choose a max of 2. We chose the satay and scallop soup base. Satay was so so though it was said to be the more popular choice there. Though I felt its more like because Satay wasn't so common at other steamboat eateries. A bit spicy and full of peanut taste. Scallop based soup taste great enough without cooking the ingredients. Soup base not too salty so we don't feel uneasy after eating a lot which should be the case for steamboat soup base.

            Foodstuffs fresh and in "happy" portions (lolx). Though I don't eat prawns but my friends commented that the prawns were very fresh and they ordered 5 plates of them. The "tou kee" was fresh and chewy without the oily smell that tou kee at many places have. They also have items like Golden mushroom, fish slices, fish paste, all kinds of meat and vegetables, cutter fish, prawns and "hum".

            Drinks not free, we ordered the home made lime juice @ $6 per jug which was about just right for 5 pax. This drink is real good~ Must try~~ The taste of lime is very distinctive and not diluted.

            What we don't like was the service there. Firstly we wanted to sit inside in the air con-ed area but was told that its better we sit outside as its better atmosphere to eat steamboat outside. But I guess the more obvious reason was we had only 5 pax and the only table inside was for more than 8 pax. The person who serviced us keep trying to coax us to order the Ala Cart (and we kept saying no) which was way more expensive and limited than the steamboat buffet. Our second order did not come at all. The person who changed the gas fuel for us accidentally touched our food with the gas can and her hands and don't even bother to change the food for us. Our bill didn't come when we asked twice for it. (We had to stare at the counter for some attention)
