    After almost 3 years in School, I decided to try out this place called the Top Table. Brought a friend along and lucky to get seats w/o reservation even tho we came close to 1pm. The Mushroom Soup and Roast leg of Lamp were out of stock and we were abit disappointed but still take whatever is it served to us.

    Appetizers Mediterranean Salad Nicoise With Pan-Seared Tuna & A balsamic Vinaigrette - The tuna tasted just right, eggs are nice too. But I don’t quite like the vegetables.

    Entrees Sauteed Prawns with Basil, Garlic And Kalamata Olive, Asparagus, Cherry Tomato Confit & Pilat Rice with Raisins - The rice wasn’t dry and the prawns were juicy and fresh.

    Desserts Vanilla Creme Brulee with Mango Sorbet & A Sour Cherry Compote - Vanilla Crème Brulee & Mango Sorbet was nice and sweet. Sour Cherry Compote was abit tasteless for my liking.

    Didn't get to try any of the beverages, we just ordered a glass of plain water.

    Overall this place gets 3 out of 5 stars, paid $25 for 2 persons. Might want to try out this place again but with reservation placed next time.

      It is not common to find a fine-dining restaurant in the Tampines estate. For those in this area curious to give something else a try, Top Table may be an alternative for you.

      This restaurant is located at Temasek Culinary Academy in Temasek Polytechnic. It is a full-service restaurant that serves as a training ground for hospitality and culinary students to hone their skills. The school has teamed with the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) to train the students in these specialties. It is opened to the school’s population, as well as the general public.

      Most of the time, the restaurant usually serves the 3-course menu that cost $12 consisting an appetiser, main and dessert. Be mindful that no alcohol is served here, although you may bring in your alcohol at no extra charge. Mocktails are served here instead, a glass costing $2.

      While waiting for food to be served, you could view the instructors coaching and monitoring the students on their servicing and cooking via the glass windows. If you’re afraid the food are not in edible status, fear otherwise as the instructors will ensure that all food served are clearly inspected before serving. As for the food, the menu is changed every week or two according to the schedule for the chef's coaching.

      The service staffs, or rather the students, are well equipped with the food knowledge and the service sequence. But do give them the benefit of the doubt if they make a small hiccup here and there. After all, they’re still learning the tricks of the trade.

      The restaurant is open during the polytechnic's semester term, 11.30am to 2pm (last order). There is a general dress code to adhere. No slippers, shorts or exposing dress are allowed. Jeans are acceptable though. But it is understandable on the part of the school.

      Do remember to make a reservation before coming in. You can try walking in, but chances are, you may be rejected due to full capacity.
