I was there with my parents to have a good time with quality food. We ordered Beijing Duck and some vegitables to go with it. They showed us a whole duck and took it away for cutting, which took more than 20 min. When it came back, it was chopped in very small bits and fried with veggies with sauce that it didn’t taste like a beijing duck any more. It looked more like a heap of toppings for fried rice. Unforgettable experience.

The Braised Beef Tripe with Shimeiji Mushrooms and Peanut Chilli Sauce (SGD$18.00) was easily one of my personal favorites of the night, with succulent, chewy pieces of beef tripe. The mushrooms added a touch of "umami" tastiness to the natural flavour of the tripe, enhanced dramatically with the spicy sauce. It was addictive popping piece after piece into the mouth.

Next, the Braised Bird's Nest with Cabbage and Chicken Broth (SGD$42.00), also one of Chef Mok's favorites. It is not difficult to see why this bowl of piping rich goodness filled with smooth slivers of bird's nest brushing past the tongue deliciously, in a sumptuous clear broth dotted with wolfberries to add hints of sweetness.

Following that, we had the Cod Fish Steamed with Soya Bean Crumbs (SGD$18.00), a slab of pearl white fish prodding the tongue like flakes of satin, luscious in taste. The flavour was packed with light saltiness of the soy sauce, giving the sweetness of the fish a nice balance; the soya bean crumbs added some crunch to the lovely dish.

Then we had the Wok-Fried Fish Noodles with Shredded Pork and Black Pepper (SGD$28.00 for small / SGD$42.00 for medium / SGD$56.00 for large), admittedly very palatable, especially with the al-dente texture. The strands of noodles were thick, bold and long, with a light saccharine hint sensationalised by strong black pepper flavour. The slivers of pork were tender and added chewy bites to the dish; as did the beansprours and red peppers. Non-carbo eaters would love to indulge in this, as did I.

Ambience at Szechuan Court exudes a luxurious and sophisticated elegance, having been recently renovated in 2011. The Chinese Imperial style royal decor within the spacious setting is enhanced with gleaming black onyx lacquered surfaces, contrasted by rich fabric colours in red, scarlet, white, and gold. Walk past the Imperial styled entrance, and choose to dine in 1 of 2 areas, the spacious and bustling open restaurant, or the quiet private booths which offer a view of the city skyline. Impressive, all around excellent!

Service at Szechuan Court is courteous, professional, efficient, and hard-working. Staff politely greet guests, and quickly usher you to your selected seats. If questioned about the menu, they are able to describe dishes in basic detail. I realise however, they are more fluent in Mandarin than English. Staff proactively top up tea / water without being asked. Observant and attentive, they arrive quickly when beckoned, offering near personalised service. I also appreciate that staff change your cutlery and plates after every dish, good effort!

Food at Szechuan Court comprises traditional, familiar Chinese Szechuan and Cantonese flavours, presented in modern fine dining style, arranged neatly on clean, white dishes. Staff will present you the dishes, then assist to portion it out. Generally, the ingredients used are fresh, prepared with respect, and well executed, full flavoured with excellent taste. Completely delicious!

We tried mainly the Szechuan dishes, and I must say that looks are deceptive, because while they look non-spicy, there was always the hidden presence of chili, spice, peppercorn, or chili oil. Yet the skill of the kitchen is such that the heat is palatable, not overwhelming. Portions are designed for communal dining. Perhaps the only drawback of Szechuan Court is the high prices, as expected of a fine dining establishment. Be prepared to splurge between SGD $80 - $150 per person for a meal here. I personally feel this is good value for money, as you can expect a consistently high standard.

The Braised Bird's Nest, Cabbage, Chicken Broth (SGD $42) is a large, filling, luxurious, individual bowl of yummy soup / broth! The chicken soup / broth is light with a slight savoury taste, filled with fresh chinese cabbage / bok choy, wolfberries, and a generous portion of bird's nest! Quality is evident, the strips of bird's nest are off-white / pearl white and translucent in colour, doesn't stain the soup / broth, is sweet with no fishy taste, and is smooth and slippery in texture, like thick egg-white. Chef says this is his favourite dish!

The Stir-Fried Duck Breast, Black Fungus, Pickled Wild Chili (SGD $32 / $48) has duck meat which is cooked till tender yet not dry, similar to the texture of venison. An earthy, aromatic, savoury dish with bell peppers / capsicum, black fungus, and soft garlic, the duck has also picked up some spicy heat, and there is a slow burn that builds while eating this. Surprisingly, the pickled wild chili isn't spicy, instead, it's face-scrunchingly, intense sour.

Absolutely loved the Braised Pork Belly Ribs, Crispy Rice, Sweet Vinegar Sauce (SGD $30 / $45)! The pork meat has a fork tender, moist texture, with a sweet, clean taste from the unique vinegar. The exterior is coated with Sezchuan peppercorn spice, which you don't feel at first, until it starts to numb your tongue, though there isn't any spicy chili burn. The small selection of diced tropical fruit lend a tinge of juicy sweetness, while the small bits of crispy white rice is genius as a garnish, eye-catching while lending a crunch to texture. Exotic, and really good!

Imperial Cold Dish Combination
It is a 5 dishes combination - Cereal Prawns, Deep Fried Spring Rolls, Marinated Octopus, Marinated Jellyfish, and Roast Suckling Pig. I am surprised to find roasted suckling pig here as it is seldom served these days during dinner being an expensive dish. The version served is quite crispy but feel that the layer of fat is a bit too much.

Coconut Yam Pudding with Lotus Seeds and Gingko Nuts
The dessert looks rather dry. The coconut milk looks like something that is straight out of a packet. Together it is a bad combination. Better to have it without the coconut milk.

Overall the food is average. The service is uneven as I could dropping sounds from the staffs around me from time to time.

The Mango Magnifico is cold and sweet, with hint of the mango taste, especially in the yolk like ball in the centre of the mooncake. All the mooncakes are elegantly enclosed in red-cloth covered boxes, which looks very nice as gift.

Nestled away in the corridors off Raffles City is this small offshoot of Szechuan Court restaurant at Fairmont. My dear friend has her Solemnization held there. It is an ideal restaurant to hold classy and oriental lunch solemnization, however, don’t expect too much from the food. It is expensive, I didn’t some researches before attended the wedding. With the amount of Hong bao and hotel rating, I expect better food. Nevertheless, nowadays wedding banquet dun expect too much. See my picture of the shark fin, cannot find any fins at all.

But I can say that this is a romantic place to hold solemnization, seriously! The restaurant does have ushered to lead us to in, of course at a 5 stars hotel restaurant; the service is kind of expected.

The dessert is nice. The papaya and fruit in milk sauce is just nice to end the day.

Dropped by an old friend since we were in the City Hall area and our stomachs were crying out loud from lack of food. The old friend that I refer to is none other than Szechuan Court, which I had the chance to do a writeup on some months back courtesy of my friend who works at Raffles.

One of the more traditional Chinese restaurants decor wise, that I've been to, Szechuan Court has nice booth seats shrouded by thin translucent curtains that can be drawn to create a more intimate eating area amidst a third story view of the neighbouring Esplanade (Its quite good actually!). Coupled with a lush red sofa and red film partitions, it shouts oriental through and through.

Braised Homemade Egg Beancurd with Shredded Abalone - Whenever I see the word homemade, my expectations inch up a notch, for better or for worse. In this case, it was for the worse. The beancurd was smooth and silky but barely tasty. Texture wise, it tended more towards the Tau Pok side, which I personally don't really fancy. The accompanying gravy was thick and starchy but I couldn't hardly make out(both visual and taste) the dried scallops

Camphor Wood and Fragrant Tea Leaves Smoked Duck - I remember ordering this dish the last time I was here and was very much unimpressed by it. This time was no exception. The duck, though crispy, was way too dry and didn't have any tea taste whatsoever. The meat this time round was a little too overcooked as well, unlike the previous visit where the meat still retained a reddish hue.

Cod Fish Steamed with Superior Soy Sauce - The fish was fresh and sweet but a little too soft. I would have personally preferred the meat to be a little firmer. Another thing which I didn't really like was the fact that the fish came with its skin attached. I know that most fishes are served with their skin intact but this is probably the only place I know of that does it with cod fish.

Szechuan Fried Rice with Shrimp - A most excellent fried rice and definitely the highlight of the evening. Each grain of rice was homogeneously coated with egg and fried till lightly charred, giving rise to a nice and even Wok Hei taste. Thought slightly drier than your normal fried rice, it was a pleasure to eat and didn't come across as too difficult to swallow, especially with the generous serving of prawn cubes.

A still decent dinner emptied our pockets by about >$50, after a 50% discount. Take away that discount and I definitely will not return, not for the quality of food. Will you On a side note, service was acceptable, but could have been better and faster.

It was a fantastic box of unique and delicious mooncakes to celebrate mid autumn festival.
