Another super dining experience at Alma: yummilious food with good service. Each of the dishes are created with a combination of flavours to please the palate.
Great food + great service = great experience!!! Thank you for a wonderful evening! We had the 6 course menu with wine pairing, and were very happy with the quality, presentation and value for money. The maitre d‘ and the sommelier turned it into a perfect experience.
Service was the best I have ever experienced in Singapore. The food was top notch and the presentation just wow! We went for the wine pairing which worked well with the food.
great service, fresh and excellent food. lovely ambience. will definitely come again.
This is the fourth time I've dined at Alma and the Degustation menu never fails to surprise my tastebuds. The delicate combination of ingredients and garnishes brings out the unique taste of each dish. The plating of each dish is a state of art and one can sense the pure culinary passion of the Chef from the complexity of the dishes compositions. The ambiance is just right with a good list of wine to select from. The service crew is great and very knowledgeable, providing full explanation of what goes behind each dish. In summary, a quintessence experience for me. if you are driving, you might want to consider parking at Far East Plaza, a short walk to the restaurant.
Expect to be taken on a fantastic culinary journey at Alma. The delight is in trying things that you normally wouldn't order in a restaurant. All the dishes were top notch, the service was excellent. We had the wine pairing, which worked perfectly with the meal. We also enjoyed trying to guess what the wines were and the staff happily played along with this. If you have a special occasion then I would wholly recommend.
The Hokkaido scallop appetizer was excellent !!! For main course, I had the Mangalica pork. I have had this in Gundol's in Budapest. Their pork tenderloin was really tender. Yours was flavorfull, but somewhat tough at the edge without fat. The lemon dessert was very good. We ordered coffee, but you did not have artificial sweeteners (Splenda/Equal/Truvia) for your coffee. I would rate you 4.5, but having to choose between 4 or 5, I guess it is more a 4.
Had an enjoyable lunch with friends- the 3-course set lunch was very good value at $39.90, with supplement charge applied for several options. Dishes were well presented, Service was attentive, but somewhat too eager, interrupting conversation a few times to ask/tell us something. Note that parking is not redeemable, and can get expensive for a long lunch.
went for dinner and took the 6 dish set. the place is very nice, service very good. Regarding the food I may sound picky, the presentation is very nice but the taste is not always here. it's too cheesy especially the chef uses a lot of parmesan which just kill some other taste... out of 6 dish, 4 had cheese and 3 parmesan.
A Friend highly recommended Alma knowing I was on a day off. True enough the food and presentation is excellent ... and I"d give the service staffs 2 thumbs up .. to complete the whole experience.
