Located near Thomson Plaza. Went there recently though I don't like to eat seafood but I still went as this place also provided "zi2 cha4".
The food tasted good although the variety is limited. We order baby Kai Lan (S$8), sweet sour fish ($10) and Gong1 Bao2 Chicken ($10). Prices are ok as even though we ordered small portions the amount of each dishes are still large (compared to other restaurants) The sweet and sour fish is very well cooked and the baby kai lan fresh and not too oily. Too spicy for the Gong Bao though.
We also ordered Chillied (or some will say Curry) Sri Lanka crabs at 2.8Kg. Heard that the buttered crabs are also nice. The Chilli is quite sweet but also very spicy though the spiciness is just right if you take it with the Fried Bread.
Tried some of the meat of the crabs. Quite nice, chewy and sweet. The crab is very very meaty those who likes to eat crab meat will love it ba.
We also ordered Yam paste with ginko nuts. ($12) The yam paste is not very well done as you still can feel the yam bits but I like it that way as it makes the yam dessert more chewy. The ginko are bitter though as the center stem wasn't removed.
4 of us spent a total of $167.00 the bulk of it went to the crabs which cost about $110.00
Tried out this after hearing from a friend. There are not many flavours when I went. I chose the orange chocolate, kiwi, taiwan, pepper chicken, curry chicken and the normal chocolate.
I would say in order for flavours like orange chocolate and kiwi to taste good, the taste of eggs have to be reduced. So those who love the taste of eggs may not like these flavours.
I would say they are rather well baked with generous amount of filling. Egg filings are well made and the flavours blended well. Curry chicken flavour was also well liked as its the filings of curry puff but in the shape of egg tarts. You can see the potato, onions and chicken inside.
I will buy again but not regularly as they are most likely fattening. They will serve well as gifts though, packed nicely in boxes.
Went there for dinner today. Well, its not really a restaurant to recommend but if you like home cooked style of meals and don't really mind paying 2X the price compared to cooking at home then this is the place. In fact when I come to this place, there are a few standard items that can be ordered which I think are good and valued for money.
1. Iced Lychee Tea (this definitely is a must for me) 2. Iced Ying Yong 3. Po Luo Bao 4. Fried rice with pork floss (I tried today and will order it as a standard) 5. Curry chicken with bread
The rest, just try once in a while when you got sick of the standards. But the menu is quite comprehensive, there are so many things in the menu its quite difficult deciding if you haven't been there before. However I will rather choose "Wang Kok " than "Xin Wang" for food though I prefer the tea at Xin Wang.
Its a good location for group outings though, the atmosphere is quite "Re4 Nao4" though the staffs there should learn more on service courtesy
Went to this restaurant today. Had quite bad experience.
Firstly the "manager" cut in while we were talking among ourselves. Though he is explaining the menu, its real rude to just cut in while we were chatting.
2ndly, my medium well done steak came out medium, and CY's medium steak came out medium rare. (and the auntie waitress was going "too raw AH?" and "cook some more LA?")
3rdly, the waiter delivered the desserts wrongly. When we asked him about it (since we did not ask for it to be served) he insisted that his manager asked him to deliver and proceed to put the desserts on our table. He should have said that he will check and not just listen blindly to his manager.
4th, proceeded to bill us for things not delivered.
Nothing much to commend just that the ambience was quite good and suitable for some family gathering. Can go there if you want value for money portion of food esp the set lunch and dinner.
Read some good reviews and had some good recommendation from friend. We were warned that the place will be damn full and sure enough even when we wanted to make reservations, the reservation was full.
We were greeted by the friendly and sunshine waitress and their very polite manager. We did not had a long wait... at most 15 mins and we were led to our seats.
Ordered steak lunch set, curry udon (with rice), seafood platter and spaghetti bolognaise (don't know how to spell)
After many good reviews and the full reservations, the full house, I was quite disappointed with the place.
Steak: Although they mentioned their sauce is very special etc etc... the portion I ate wasn't that very special. Very salty and tasted like soy sauce to me. The saltiness of the sauce also covered the taste of the beef However the tenderness of the steak is just right and the set is quite valued.
Curry Udon : Came with rice too. This seems to be the best among all the dishes. A tad too sweet for me though most Jap curry are like that.
Seafood Platter: Rice wasn't that great... taste doesn't seem to be there. I feel like I'm just biting something. The person who ordered this mentioned that the combination of the taste of oyster, prawns and the rice is strange.
Not much comments about the spaghetti just that its oily and nothing special.
Atmosphere was rather good and service staffs there friendly, fast and commendable.
