Came here to fuel us up after mass and we had:
Seafood Tomyam Pasta - fettuccine tossed in creamy sauce that is infused with Tomyam spice. The seafood (mussels and grilled prawns) was fresh and generous in amount. Overall a tasty dish.

The Fuel Plus Burger - hubby liked his burger. He also enjoyed the Sweet potato fries that accompanied the burger!

Honey Baby Back Ribs - my FIL enjoyed his the most he declared. I tried a bite and the meat was moist yet falls-off-bone tender. Seasoning also on point.

Mad about Salmon - MIL said it's nice. Salmon meat was not dry and Rosti was great too.

Beef Mac & Cheese - daughter didn't like the shell pasta but she still polished the whole tray of baked pasta! Haha... the sauce base is tomato with cheese over it. Think it's more lasagna than Mac & Cheese really.

BBQ Cheeseburger - this should be good because my 8 year old ate the WHOLE burger unassisted! This only happens when she is super hungry or food is good. I'll lean towards the burger being good.

Parking here is road side and a nightmare so if you don't like to illegally park, you may need to do a stake-out.

Having said that, I'll find another time to try their desserts.

Quiet on Sundays Smile May 04, 2017   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Asian Variety | Thai

Came with my family to discover the restaurant very quiet on a Sunday afternoon. Only another family other than us.

We ordered many of their signature dishes and though there were not many people ordering, the food took a while to come. Lucky for us, we were enjoying a lazy Sunday lunch so we were in no rush. We saw later that the kitchen was only manned by 1 chef so maybe that's why.

The food is actually not bad, some were even very good.

The not-bad ones were:
1) Cashew Nut Chicken - a tad spicy and served over a basket of yam!
2) Grilled Pork Collar - not much taste on it's own but the accompanying dip was too sour for my liking
3) Okra - normal nice
4) Pad Thai Seafood - texture ok but a tad too sweet for my liking

The food dishes were:
1) Basil Stir-fried Pork - I didn't have any as my eldest girl ate them all and did a 👍🏼 when I exclaimed "no more for me?!"
2) Crispy Fish Skin - super crispy and laced with salted egg = Yumz
3) Olive Rice - nicely fried and fully flavour, another favourite of my eldest girl
4) Pandan Chicken - good marination so the meat was tasty and nicely fragranced with pandan
5) Prawn Cake - not the factory made ones, you can tell from the bits of prawn in the patty. Was the right kind of crunch
6) Red Curry with Roast Duck - this is an interesting dish with mild lychee sweetness and red curry spiciness in a good combo!
7) Soft Shell Crab Salad - didn't see much of the salad but the crispy soft shell crab made up for the dish
8) Tom Yam Potaek - not a big bowl but the ingredients were fresh and the soup not overly spicy that it'll kill your tastebuds.
9) Street Omelette with minced Pork - fluffy egg fried with minced pork and onion strips! Let's just say the kids ate through the first one so fast that we had to order another!

Actually pretty good Smile Apr 02, 2017

The restaurant was pretty quiet when we arrived for dinner and to me, an empty restaurant means bad food or bad service or worse, both!

We had 2 starters and 2 pastas and they are all very nice actually! A most satisfying meal indeed!

We had:
Prosciutto Ham and Melon - lovely combo of salty and sweet!! The cuts of ham were generous and the melon slices were so sweet! That equates to heavenly bites every bite! Very nice!

Calamari - the batter was pretty bland but still crispy. Average nice.

Bacon Carbonara - wonderfully creamy and the savoury bits of bacon made the overall taste very enjoyable.

Seafood Linguine - am impressed with their seafood both in amount and freshness level. I am very happy with this pasta dish as the flavour is spot on and the tomato sauce is tasty.

We will definitely be back for more yummy pasta!

Silky Smooth Smile Dec 27, 2016

It gets a 4 stars for flavour and general Yumz and an extra 1 star for value. I mean it's $3.30 for fish with meatballs and an egg!!! Nowadays, where to find?!??

The porridge was smooth and creamy to start things off. I spied inside the stall and I saw a HUGH pot with a wooden lid. I know what that stores...more of this awesome porridge!

I opted for fish slices and meatballs as this is my favourite combination! The fish slices are not thick but you can still taste the natural sweetness of the fresh fish! The pork meatballs are also very tasty! The seasoning is just on point, not too over powering but yet tasty aplenty in every bite.

I love raw egg in hot piping porridge. Something about this combi that I cannot resist.

Highly recommend anyone who has a porridge hole to fill!

Great View & Service Smile Sep 07, 2016

Decided to have an atas lunch with daughter and this cafe is by the pool side. I must say Marriott Hotel has a really nice and swanky pool. Eating your lunch here and watch folks chillax by the pool generates a very peaceful feeling.

I opted for the grilled cod and it was fresh and perfectly grilled. Layer of grilled crisp on the outside and soft buttery fish on the inside. Very good!

Daughter ordered her usual pasta and they don't have a large selection so she decided to try their lobster linguine. It's not a tomato nor cream base pasta, more like aglio olio style. The lobster is quite big and it was fresh. However, I found the pasta a tad under-seasoned. It's not bad.

We were greedy and ordered a mash potato to share. It's served in a tiny cast iron pot but the flavours are spot on and the creamy texture had us both hooked! Social politeness prevented us from licking the pot clean. Heh

Not a place to have regular lunch as it is atas but service is great and it's overall a very enjoyable experience.
