A common gathering ground for me and my secondary school friends.
The price of this place is always contentious among my friends because we deem this place as good, but often out of our usual price range unless for a special occasion.
Therefore, on the grounds of a birthday celebration, we went down for dinner. The place was packed to the brim and very nosy. The meat often ran out but the staff was slow to react and restock them. I even have to remind the staff to stock up one of the meat variety.
The meat variety was abundant, though the same could no be said for the veggies. Hence making the meal quite unhealthy.
The soup base was pretty good, but the staff was once again slow to top up our soup.
The cockles were also not fresh, since they still could not be opened after I left them in the soup for a long time.
What I dislike most after a meal there is the lingering bbq smell on your person.
Causeway Point's Seoul Garden, many times I've eaten there and never was a problem for me. Indeed that the space has now shrunk a little, but the food servings are little in variety compared to the one in Tampines Mall.
The meat selection was alright for me, although the flavours were not as strong or distinct. They were a little to mild and after cooking and eating, they became like any other meat that you can cook at home. One time my mother picked only a few of the vegetables selections, reasons as she said, most of them are not fresh. The cooked food was most of the time left to cool and become lukewarm. So I never took any food there. The sushi selection was also limited and the rice were not really that fresh as well, the sushi were like little rocks too. All I can say is that the korean chilli sauce is the only thing that's constant in all the outlets.
Despite the food being not wonderful, I would go there again, as it's a very closed spaced and you can eat there with people and the company always is better then the food and just to fill up stomach space.
I went to this outlet on the 14th of March 2009, and was pretty disappointed. The outlet had undergone renovation, and has become smaller, about 1/4 of the store area was given to Breeks Cafe.
That aside, I was even more disappointed when I set off to begin taking food. The cooked food section was miserable. Compared to last time (about 8 months ago), there was so little variety. There was only fried food like spring rolls, french fries, fried chicken and fried fish balls, as well as buttered corn, spaghetti and fried rice. What's worse, most of the cooked food was mediocre at best.
Yet more disappointment when I came to the bbq meat selection, the meat did not seem as fresh, and some of the flavourings were too sweet for me and my friends' liking.
The steamboat was another problem, where we now have to pay a soup surcharge if we request for one of their 'special' soupbase, like tom yam or ginseng chicken.
The dessert section was okay though, where you could make your own iced desserts. Ice cream selection was okay. However, the cake selection was terrible, and the chocolate brownies were hard as rocks.
Overall, not enjoyable, and definitely not worth the money, despite getting a 10% discount with Maybank credit card.
