First course was parsnip and chestnut soup. Unfortunately the soup was too watery, and the flavours not rich enough. Soup like this begged to be creamy with rich wintery flavours with a hint of herbs. The ingredients were sorta there, but not done to the level the restaurant portrays inside to be.
Main course, my friend had the pork belly, which seemed alright. I had the tofu black bean rice noodle wrap dish. Even though I'm vegetarian, but doesn't mean my appetite is little. The size of the dish was far too small and originally. I felt that with the price of the lunch set, they could have used better ingredients and a bit more creative with the main course. How disappointing.
For dessert, we ordered the apple tart and this chocolate sauce with fruits. The apple tart was much better, although only just by a margin. It wasn't too sweet, which was great, but what it lacks were the flavours of apple. Just not quite there yet.
The service is something worth a mention. Both the foreign managers and the asian waiters who served us were attentive, friendly and professional. I'd have to say, I enjoy the view and the service more than the food. I'd come back, but probably just for drinks.
