I requested for drumstick so I expected it to be very succulent and very smooth! But to my disappointment, the meat was not that succulent and smooth as what I've expected it to be..

I requested for drumstick so I expected it to be very succulent and very smooth! But to my disappointment, the meat was not that succulent and smooth as what I've expected it to be.. It was not tough but was not very tender too. The light soy sauce underneath the chicken as well as the soup provided was very salty! I was so thirsty the whole night after i had their soup and chicken rice. The rice was quite fragrant but a tad dry. The portion seemed to be too little for this steep price. I can only say with such standard in a 5 star hotel, the price here shouldn't be $27++ = $32 nett (Costs around 8 times more than the market price) With such price, it should taste special but they failed to impress me.

Overall conclusion: Service was poor. No warm greeting and smile from the staff, they seemed to be like no expression at all. I find it weird to see this at a 5 star hotel restaurant. Waiting time for the dessert was more than 15mins - unacceptable! The only thing I like was the cosy and spacious ambience. My advice is, Singapore has lots of places serve much better local food than here at a much lower price, this place definitely not worth your time and $$.
