10.38km from Jurong East ActiveSG GymWe were a group of 11 diners for Team Lunch. It was my first time but not for others. First feelings - Big car parking space, awesome entry with pictures hanging against dimmed lights and spacious walking path and then being ushered onto the massive open space with a massive umbrella protecting us from sudden Singapore rains. As we had advance booking, we got a corner place, but that has nothing to do with quietness or calmness. Friday noise was all-pervading. Sitting down, I was soaking in the views of the yachts, the expansive Tuas waters and the buildings of JB (quite an eyesore) on the other side. Something different from the other restaurants of Singapore. The Server came and handed us a iPad for ordering, didn't ever tried to start a conversation stating the day's special or something like that. She came after sometime to verify the orders. The drinks came quick and then the soup, starters and main course. So, what's different - Nothing at all. Though the prices were near to gourmet variety, but the taste wasn't and the Indian dishes failed miserably to measure up to authenticity of the spices or the presentation. The Indian dishes seemed more like Hawker's market food served on nice cutlery and by uniformed servers. We tried ordering in more Nan but no one responded to our hand gestures for 5 minutes. So, someone walked to the main counter and ordered there. The waiters were all walking and running without even glancing at any of the nearby tables. I thought we might be assigned a dedicated server to take care of our needs considering our team size to be 11. So let me rank - 1. Drinks - 4 out of 5 being fresh. 2. Soups - 3 out of 5 as the presentation was innovative being served inside a bread. 3. Main Course - 2 out of 5. Lacked authenticity and flavor. 4. Quality of Service - 1.5 out of 5 - 1.5 is due to iPad (:-)) 5. Ambience - Calmness - 1 out of 5 (very noisy) Views - 3.5 out of 5 (keep on watching the yachts) Entry and Exit Path - 4 out of 5 (due to old-world charm) Shall I go there a 2nd time - Maybe during dinner time to have beers and have starters like Onion rings/fries; but not lunch time.
