Bought my friends to eat at Swensen Vivo. We ordered a variety of dishes such as the Clayfish pasta, Seafood platter which cost $30 and a few ice-cream dishes. The seafood platter for one person contained squid, 2 tiger prawns, 2 clayfish, 1 dory fish and fried rice and this dish cost $30. Although the seafood platter presentation was nice, I felt the serving portion was simply too little, for the price of $30. Also, it tasted slightly bland.
Only the 3 dishes of ice-creams tasted nice. Also the ice-creams were creatively presented and serving portions were just nice.
I felt Swensens still have lots of room for improvement in terms of their Western cooked food. But when it comes to their ice-creams, the taste and quality is still there.
Also their staffs were not attentive at all. It took us considerable efforts before we can get their attention to get our plates and utensils for us to eat our ice-creams. In the first place, when they serve us the ice-creams, they should have get the plates and utensils for us too but they did not. This is an area that they should look into and improve on it as it certainly impacts the dining experience of their diners.
