    Went there to celebrate a friend's birthday and had an absolute unsatisfying meal. We ordered Set Shabu Shabu for 4 as we had 6 persons and the waitress told us that the Set can serve 6 too. Yeah, I think she meant can serve 6 but not necessary enough for 6. As can be seen on the picture, there's an absolute total or 1 mushroom for a Set for 4?? Or 2 small pieces of Toufu for 4?? In the end, we saw the table besides us ordered ala cart Shabu Shabu for 1 person and the serving was like about the same as ours.

    Food quality wise, the freshness and taste was good and the soup base was just nice after we cooked the ingredients. This slightly appeased our anger over the portion of Set for 4.

    Service was quite good, it was service with a smile from the servers and request for fillings of tea was met quite fast.

    Would recommend this place if you don't look at the Shabu Shabu Set menu.

      Went there recently in Mar 09.

      I think the smell of the fuel they used for the individual pot should change as the burning fuel did reduced my appetite greatly.

      Soup:
      Taste of soup too strong hence masking the taste of the food. Especially the Laksa soup base. Quoting my friend... "Everything tasted like Laksa..."

      Food Variety:
      Fresh, especially the vegetables but we don't see much meat though. Variety of cooked food and raw food is wide though I don't know why there are so many spicy cooked dishes on the menu. The Douhu Goreng is not bad if they did not overcooked it till its (very) hard. The black pepper (I think) beef is good too. I liked the spring onions and other condiments provided.

      Dessert:
      Poor and I must agree the chocolate of the fondue saved the dessert section as without it, there will only be mashmellow, fruits and some banana walnut cakes.

      Service:
      Except for some no-smile-policy people from China, the service is quite fast considering the place was packed when we went there.

      Can go again. However, do not wait till too late to order the chocolate fondue as there won't be much things left to go with it. (We had only banana, strawberry and mashmellows)

        Like Trumpat, we went there for the first time because a colleague wanted to eat the mango pudding. ;D Went there 2 more times after.

        At $26 per person, the place require additional charge for drinks other than cold water (and the water dispenser was like hidden in one corner). 3 kinds of soup base to choose from alternating between Winter Melon, Laksa (very sweet), Herbal Chicken (a bit too bitter) and pork base (this is the best I feel). (Refillable of the same kind, $3 for additional pot of soup)

        Variety of raw food for cooking and cooked food to choose from. Raw food kinds are quite fresh though there's variety, its not reall~~~y wide. Haven't really tried the cooked food cept for the Po Piah which tasted quite good but need thinner skin and more garlic.

        Service was ok, empty plates cleared quite fast and the "aunties" are very friendly too.

        However, the desserts are not as good comparative to the food stuffs. Most probably because I only ate the western desserts which will taste nice if they are cold (but left out in the open, they are not cold). So we had room temperature Choc Eclaire etc. However the mango pudding is a MUST try. The taste of Mango thick but not too sweet. Texture great, elastic, not too watery. (Best!)

          One word - disappointing. We really felt that the $8.80 we paid for the buffet was money thrown to the drain.

          Firstly, the service crews are from China and don't really understand what we said. 2nd, she grew impatient when we wanted to order our waffles and simply gave us a piece of paper to write our orders. Not only that, she wasn't that busy at all to take our orders as she simply stood around while we wrote our orders OURSELVES. Service?? more like self-service.

          Food. Not at all nice with the waffle too thick and without any taste. That was ok if there was a lot of filing in one serving. However this was not the case, though we can see the filings spilling out, in actual fact, the filings are being put at the edge of the waffles to make it look like a lot. (duhz you think we are stupid or what?) Filings are not special at all especially those with names like "Orange" or "Cherry Cherry" They are in fact, only jams on waffles.

          For drinks we ordered Mango which tasted lame. Only the ice cream in the drink tasted great. One of my friends ordered main course which I think was prawns pasta with about 5 prawns in it. The size of prawns are rather big which was good. However, the prawns were cold.....

          Definitely not valued for money if you are going for the waffle buffet. We regretted trying (and I got a sourish D24 durian waffle filing) there and will not go there again.

            Went there for set lunch today on recommendation from my friend. Soup for the day was pumpkin, add another drink and main course and it only cost $9.90 each person without additional GST or service charge. Since we ate lunch at a rather late timing, there are hardly any other guests around. Hence we got rather prompt service.

            We ordered seafood aglio, chicken aglio and Carbonara (?). The aglio dishes, though not superbly fantastic, is reasonably good tasting considering its price. Not as oily as other restaurants, I kind of liked mine with the linguine well cooked. Cabonara was great too, tasty creamy sauce and the penne not too soft.

            Drinks and soup are quite normal and the coffee smelled nice. We had a full stomach for this lunch. Don't expect any frills though, its just a simple cafe which I don't mind since the price is quite low. Set lunch hours 1-3pm and set dinners hours 6-9pm.
