We bought the groupon for MAD'S champagne brunch for $58 (UP$108), which includes free flow champagne, juices, coffee/tea, dim sum, as well as 1 starter, 1 main course & 1 dessert per person. The menu can be found here: http://www.modernasiandiner.com/menu.php

The restaurant interior was very spacious with brightly coloured hot pinks walls and tables. My partner and I were shown to a cozy little booth which I really liked. At each table, there was an iPad so we could just send our order electronically, which was way more convenient than trying to get a waiter's attention. That said, even though there was a self ordering system, there were sufficient staff around who were helpful and responded very quickly.

Josper-grilled Cuttlefish and Teriyaki Portobello Mushroom Toast (starter): I ordered this for myself. The white strips are the cuttlefishwhich were a little fishy. The entire dish was served at room temperature too so this was pretty disappointing. The only saving grace was the mushrooms, which were extremely flavourful.

Lobster and Crab Benedict (main): This dish was served cold so it was yet another disappointing dish. The lobster and crab meat were placed between the 2 poached eggs and one piece of bread. While the yolk was runny, just the way it should be, everything else was mediocre and just really ruined my meal.

Other dishes that were ordered..

Butter Chilli Soft Shell Crab (starter): Ordered by my partner, this was soft shell crab drizzled with chilli sauce. Even though it was a recommended dish, this was not nice at all. The soft shell crab was hard and the chilli was just extremely normal chilli sauce.

Josper-grilled Wagyu Beef Claypot Rice (main): Ordered by my partner, this was sliced wagyu beef served on top of claypot rice. Both of us felt that the beef was okay, however the rice was really dry and not flavoured at all, with some mushroom slices mixed in.

Watermelon Granita Panna Cotta Parfait (dessert): This was served in a cup with the panna cotta at the base, followed by watermelon slush then topped with poached pear and sago. Everything was just ok or glen, nothing memorable.

Chilled Mango Sago and Pomelo and with Honeycomb Ice Cream (dessert): This was nice, sweet and creamy with mango goodness.the only dish that didn't fail our expectations.

Towards the end of our meal, we ordered two dimsum items. After a pretty long time they still didn't arrive so we checked with the waitress, who said that all the dim sum items are finished. However, we still saw the staff serving baskets of them to other customers when we left, and even saw that dimsum were still being made in the kitchen. Was a little unhappy about this but didn't clarify with thestaff since we were already quite full. Anyway I couldn't believe that the dimsum items which were supposed to be free flow could be sold out so quickly, hmph.

With the price I paid, I really expected much much better food. We'll not return again.
