I went out with my gf's family on a Sat's afternoon to PuTien. We wanted to eat Chinese cuisine. And this restaurant was on our top's list. It is listed as one of the top 50 restaurants in Singapore, by Straits Times Newspaper. The quality of the food is consistent in all branches. The restaurant was quite fully packed when we reached at 1230pm, on a public holiday. Luckily, we have made reservation beforehand. Therefore we do not have to wait for a table.

The restaurant was quite fully packed when we reached at 1230pm, on a public holiday. Luckily, we have made reservation beforehand. Therefore we do not have to wait for a table.
Service is tip-top, with the waitress mostly Chinese. Therefore, it is easier for us to converse in Chinese on the dishes. We ordered Pu-er as our tea. It was fragrant.
On every table, there is a small pot of chilli sauce. It is claimed to be made exclusively in Pu-Tien restaurant. It wasn't too spicy. I can taste the freshness of the chilli sauce. We ordered Set Menu A for 4 Pax. It costs $108++. It comes with 1) Starters platter 2) Braised beancurd with chinese cabbage 3) Steamed seabass with chilli 4) Deep fried pork ribs 5) Stir-fried yam 6) Choice of main course - Mee Sua 7) Complimentary dessert.
Firstly, they serve 2 starters. One is mini octopus dish. The other is Fa Cai. As my gf and her family members do not like to eat octopus, we told the waitress that we dislike the octopus dish, and request for a change, if possible. The waitress went to look for the manager. The manager came and find out what was the problem. We explained it again. To my unhappiness, the manager remarked that we should have told the waitress that we dislike to eat seafood when we placed our orders. Reluctantly, he told us that he try to change to another dish for us. In my mind, I was thinking that on the menu, it didn't state that the starter dishes contain a plate full of octopus. It merely states "Starters Platter". How should I be able to list out a long list of food items which I dislike? Nevertheless, we didn't allow the manager's attitude to spoil our mood. Next came the pot of braised beancurd with chinese cabbage. The soup servings is plentiful, allowing each person to have 2nd or 3rd servings. The soup is sweet and soothing to the stomach. Our taste buds are opened up immediately. Then it was the stir-fried yam. Yam was cooked amazingly well. My gf's family memebers praised it too. In the past, I don't have much liking for yam. But after eating this, I have a fond for yam dishes. Next, it was steamed seabass with chilli. It was a huge piece of seabass fish. Fresh and steamed perfectly well. There isn't any fishy smell too. All of us enjoyed it a lot. Ample servings for each person too . Next it was the deep-fried pork ribs. It was fried well. Not too oily. The well-made gravy on the ribs adds onto the taste of the pork ribs. With the dishes more or less done, the mee sua came. I feel this is the main character in this menu. It is cooked very well. Lots of fantastic ingredients in the mee sua, which makes it very delicious and fragrant. All of us enjoyed it alot. Last but not the least, came the yam dessert. It is presented very well, with sort of pattern like a flower blossoming. It tastes sweet and great too. It adds a final touch to the great food that we had beforehand.
To conclude, all of us have full praises for food in Pu Tien restaurant. We will definitely recommend our family and friends to this place again.
