Presentation rating Asian Style Crispy Chicken Wings– 4/5
Sweet Potato Fries – 4/5
Quinoa Bowl – 4/5
Penne Pasta – 3.5/5
Taste rating Asian Style Crispy Chicken Wings– 3.5/5
Sweet Potato Fries – 5/5. Their Chilli Jam was also 5/5.
Quinoa Bowl – 4/5 (I did not taste it)
Penne Pasta – 3.8/5. If you have it spicy, it tastes good, but it tastes basic at a low spice. There was barely any bacon in it though.
Portion rating Asian Style Crispy Chicken Wings– 2/5. Apparently, the wings we had are smaller than they usually are.
Sweet Potato Fries – 5/5. It’s enough for four people to eat a few each.
Quinoa Bowl – 4/5
Penne Pasta – 5/5. It’s over two portions.
Was what I first wanted available? No. They did not have the Duck Lasagne or Beef Pho.
Service of restaurant rating 4/5. There was a blunder where they gave my friend a 5/5 spice and gave me the 1/5 spice. Now, this is a blunder as he can’t have pepper because of his ulcer. They gave a complimentary Chapman to rectify it.
Cleanliness of restaurant rating 3/5. Nothing special, though the seats and chairs were a bit wobbly.
Recommended for a date? 2/5 – I wouldn’t want to go on a date here, but someone else might
Are waterfront seats available? N
Extra Comments The server was so pleasant.
