    Visited for buffet lunch at this branch. First thing, the waitresses here are not a friendly lot though the waiters are good even though they are not fluent in English.

    Deco not bad. Crowd very little even though it was lunch time. Since its buffet lunch, we order hand roll, chawanmushi, salmon/ika/tuna etc sashimi, teppanyaki of vege/bean sprouts/chicken/Salmon, Pumpkin Croquette, potato salad, peach salad, plain udon, Ebi Teriyaki etc etc.

    Food we would give a high below average grade since there were some dishes that we particularly liked like the Teppanyaki Beansprouts, Tori Terriyaki and Pumpkin Croquettes

    Things like udon which was overcooked and brittle, sashimi where only the first plate was nice with thick cuts though not very fresh. The next 2 plates had cuts from other parts of the fish and were too hard to bite and even turned black at some parts. Most of the dishes there tend to be too salty and the potato salad tasted weird with sour taste and peach salad with spicy (??) sauce.

    Will not visit again.

      Just had dinner there, service was rather with the staffs passing us the menu as soon as we sat down ... however this should be the case since there were only like 3 to 4 tables to serve and with 3 serving staffs.

      Food was above average. We ordered

      Pineapple fried rice with seafood: This fried rice got the most commends with rice cooked just right, not too dry or wet. "Sotong" in the rice were large in size and portions not small too. Contain raisins, pineapples, cashew nuts, sotong and prawns.

      Crispy Money bag: not much comment on this. Quite normal.

      Chicken Wings: very crispy but not too dry. There were actually pieces on the portion but we had 6 people so the waitress told us that she will tell the chef to give us 6 pieces instead. (Good~~)

      We also ordered Baby Kailan with mushroom and oyster sauce, mixed vege (I think), Tom Yam soup, Chendol and sticky rice with mango.

      I did not drink the Tom Yam soup but the comment on it was so so though the amount of ingredients in the soup was quite good.

      Chendol and sticky rice were large in portion and generous with the topping. Warm sticky rice with cold Mango pieces simply tasted great and you can choose to add ice cream too.

      7 persons, we spent about $180 for dinner which was $25 for each person. Not too expensive or cheap but given the quality of food, its money well spent.

        Happened to be at Raffles at dinner time and we decided to go into this restaurant as it doesn't seems to be too crowded. Indeed, we are the 2nd table of customers in the restaurant.

        Deco seems rather pleasing with the theme based on "new China" style.

        However we were disappointed looking at the menu as the number of dishes is really very very limited. Luckily we were hungry and our main aim wasn't on trying things.

        We ordered "蜜汁鸡" which seems to be a rather common dish. We also ordered "牛腩“ and “春" noodles and red dates longan drink.

        The chicken, indeed though tender and well cooked, the sauce is quite normal of soya sauce oyster sauce.

        The beef dish is not bad with good cuts of the beef though the noodles seems to be lacking in texture.

        My spring noodles is actually 4 types of vegetables toufu.
        The taste is just normal though I do like it that they do not overcook the vegetables.

        The price whether expensive or not depends on whether we feel the food is valued for money. For us, we feel that the price is a bit on the high side.

        Went there extremely hungry and tired .. had a very very small lunch and spent a few hours practicing and performing. We went to this restaurant situated at a corner of a block of flats. Personally I don't like orange so the deco in the restaurant which was mostly orange, gave me a headache. We ordered Mixed grill, oven baked chicken (should be called over baked), Seafood pasta (I think), Chocolate Truffle, Brownie and Beef Lasagna.

        Upsized the meal to include soup and drinks at a mere $3.
        The soup was great ... (I think was leek) with smooth and deep taste and not just diluted cambell soup. However the ice lemon tea, though big in size, was too sweet.

        The overall verdict of the food there was : Overcooked

        with tough chicken and beef in my oven baked chicken and the lasagna, dry, grainy and hard texture of our choc truffle and brownie

        the steak and mixed grill seems not bad too, with the meat being very tender and the portion valued for money

        Just try the steak when you visit.

          Well... won't comment on the ice cream since for such ice cream retail, the taste and price are the same every where. Staffs are quite ok though I've encountered better staffs who are friendlier. However the place is real small and cramp. Many of the times I went, there were no seats. Except for once we went when the shop is near closing.

          Better to purchase the ice cream and eat walking around rather than wait for seats to be cleared and tables wiped.
          And due to the low number of staffs at each outlet, this outlet was no exception. The speed of clearing tables wasn't there and a few times, customers have to push away the used cups and spoons or throw the used utensils away to use the tables.
