Tried the ala cart buffet lunch. Quite reasonable price (< $30/pax) for the wide range of food. I like the salad prawn, which combines sweetness and savory. It tastes refreshing with the fresh prawn, pineapples, cherries, fruit cocktail and mayo. Prawns look a bit transparent with crunchy feel.The chilli crab is only so so, expected it to be more spicy and less sweet. Also, the crab doesn’t seem very fresh. The sauce is a bit on the gluey side.We especially like the crispy chicken wings. Super crispy and meat is tender. 2 servings is still not enough. Staff service is ok. Food are served quite fast. Ambience and view is good as on high floor of Orchard Central. continue reading

Happen to see the menu of BanHeng while shopping in Orchard Central, so we thought we'll give it a try. The price for ala cart buffet lunch is quite cheap $22.80/pax, and the food selection is quite wide. We tried all the chef’s recommendations which can only be ordered once -- Braised Shark's Fin with Crabmeat, Braised whole Abalone in Brown Sauce, Drunken Prawn with Chinese Herbs, Chilli Crab or Black Pepper Crab, Stir fried Scallop with Asparagus, Frog Leg with Spicy Sauce, Steamed clam with ginger and garlic, and Deep fried Soon Hock fish.I love the abalone best, very succulent and chewy. I think the drunken prawn is a bit bland, could do with more herbs. Chilli crab is so so only, the sauce is not as flavourful and spicy as expected. Deep freid soon hock fish is yummy as it is very crispy. The other dishes (dim sum, meat, vege, dessert) are so so only - can't expect too much at this price. For better quality food, suggest to consider elsewhere. Staff service is quite good though and are prompt in changing our plates after every dish. Ambience is also good for family gatherings. continue reading

See my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/04/26/23pax-dinner-ban-heng-orchard-central-on-25apr2014/we started with the list of chef’s recommendations above.for me the best dish was the abalone. it was about or almost the normal good restaurant standard, not better.the rest of the dishes were kind of below par or maybe i should say just ok. however everything is relative. the price of S$26.80 is i guess pretty alright for the number of dishes, though these days there were more talks of worthwhile calories & worthwhile cholesterol and focus was more on quality than quantity. 1 friend i asked during dinner said pretty much the same, that relative to price it was ok. another friend commented on FB post afterwards – “The food was actually quite satisfactory for the price and place”.the chilli crab was pretty ok though not spicy (as we were told by the servers), but its not a dish that the ladies took much nor the rest.the sharkskin soup was gluey like sometimes served in wedding dinners. i took <1/2 of the portion served.the drunken prawn was among the better dishes. 1 lady on my table commented that it had nicely herb flavoured soup. the prawn was quite ok.the frog legs were a bit below par say c/w the plum, meaty ones at ah yat turf city.likewise the garlic steamed scallops with tanhoon. this should be a pretty standard dish if using live scallops, but somehow the scallop & garnishing were not tasty. i do a much better tasty dish using IQF frozen razor clams from sheng shiong, but of course i always prefer razor clams to scallops for this garlic steamed preparation.the stir-fried scallops with asparagus was also an average dish. the asparagus were quite good in texture & taste. scallops were just average. like the frog leg, this dish was lacking in ‘wok hae”, which was surprising as the baby kailan dish that came later had very good wok hae.the deep-fried soon hock was also quite average. this was also a standard dish at many restaurants. couldn’t say it was poor but while the fishes were crispy outside, the inside were not moist & tender as the usually good ones at most restaurants, & the sauce were not so tasty as well.the lady who commented on the drunken prawns went to spy on the other tables…haha…& we ordered the steamed seabass & the roast duck. good food-spotting, well done!the 1/2 seabass with spicy bean sauce was good. though 1 friend commented that soon hock was a better & more expensive fish…but it goes to show that quality of cooking/preparation is equally or sometime more important than quality of ingredients. the roast duck was good too, flavourful but just a tad salty. compare this with the really good roast duck at noodle restaurant at centrepoint!it prompted the lady friend to quip that perhaps the trick was to mine the non chef recommendations.the 2 vegetables dishes we ordered were quite good, above average.the baby kailan had very good wok hae.& the spinach with superior stock was good. nice tasty stock.the deep-fried tofu with thai sauce was much below par, both the tofu & also the sauce.the mayo prawn salad was quite ok & refreshing though not a favourite with me.the hae chor looks were not so appealing. the taste was just ok.the braised goose was to me below par, which is kind of surprising for an establishment that started out as teochew restaurant 42years ago in 1972. it was not ‘pang” i.e. flavourful & texture was over boiled. my favourite is the braised duck at imperial treasure teochew restaurant at ngee ann city. my own teochew braised duck is also more flavourful than this. 1 friend asked whether one could tell between goose & duck. couple of us felt that sway when eating goose in hong kong the more gamey & fragrant taste was quite apparent. overall, food, ambience & price were quite ok for such a get-together. ala carte buffet was quite convenient, one price, easy to manage for groups & don’t really have to plan or pre-order the food, pretty much order anything you fancy. we were mostly more interested in talking, with food as a good accompaniment, so i was not paying much attention to the menu too. it’s probably not a place i would go much or soon. continue reading

I've won some Orchard Central vouchers so brought my family here for dinner treat. After looking through the menu, everyone decided to try out the ala carte buffet dinner since price was rather reasonable. There was a short list of items which limit to one serving per pax. Just these alone can make my parents and grandma pretty full. They are not big eaters and yet like variety. Haha!But we still order other dishes on the menu to try. Overall i wasn't too impressed as it tasted pretty normal and nothing too special.If you like ala carte buffet style and don't mind paying more, i strongly recommend Tung Lok which is on the same level. The range of food is better and tastier, service is pretty good so definitely more worth it despite higher price. You do pay for quality based on price continue reading
