Viet Grill

Service could be better. The restaurant wasn't busy last Saturday, yet it took ages to grab a waiter/ess. Being Vietnamese myself, I thought the food was very good compared to the other restaurants in the same street. But I didn't like the prawn sauce that came with the Cha Ca La Vong dish. If you're not used to the fishy smell, you definitely won't like it. But I know how to make it to reduce the smell. Prices are also reasonable.

Overall, this is worth going to for a meal.

Piya Piya

This place is more of a bar. They have no concept of how Thai food should taste and have tried to make it fusion. One of the worst places for Thai food that I've been to so far. They also lack a good service. Don't be tempted even with the discounted deal.

Le Palais du Jardin

Took my brother there for his birthday last night. I've had dinner there before. found the menu has expanded compared to previous years, food and wine quality still excellent. However, service level has certainly declined.

They had 1 waiter taking orders for the whole restaurant area. The woman who served our drinks wasn't very pleasant. It took them ages to bring our bill and didn't bother to bring back my change. The service charge of 12.5% was already included and I was determined to get my change back.

How crafty!

Kulu Kulu Sushi (Shelton St)

I used to eat here alot. Food quality has certainly gone out the window. The sashimi pieces are certainly thinne these days....

I'm sure when you go for a meal, quality of food is more important.
