As for drinks, I had the sweet alabama. A must order if you're a fan of peanut butter. It's really creamy so if you can't finish it, you should share it with your dining partner.
The small flame! An absolutely favourite of mine. If it's your first time there, this dish is sure to satisfy your tastebuds and leave it singing! It consists of a piece of fillet fish, 3-4 grilled prawns vegetables (broccoli and carrots), thick cut french fries and a small portion of rice. The entire dish is covered in a cheese type of sauce that makes everything moist and keeps it from being dry after it has been flamed.
How uncomfortably hot it was. As StarVista is an open space concept mall, the entire mall isn't in an air conditioned environment. The shops are usually air conditioned though. Unfortunately, manhattan fish market has really bad ventilation. People sitting in one section of the restaurant, practically didn't have any air-conditioning at all. Both my boyfriend and myself were sweaty and hot throughout dinner, something which made the entire meal unpleasant and uncomfortable.
Also, their staff were poorly trained. While waiting in the queue, I notice 4 to 6 empty tables. Yet no one helped the 10 people queuing to the seats. They could definitely had been more efficient. Instead, customers were left standing outside for a good 10-15 minutes.
I definitely will not be going back to this outlet again as its service left much to be desired.
Spending: Approximately $62 for 2 people
