Food was great and the service was excellent. The waitress who took our order realised that we had over-ordered. Without our knowing, she held the order of one of the dishes. When most of the dishes were served, she came to check with us if we still wanted the last dish which was the coffee pork ribs. By then we were all stuffed! We thanked her for her thoughtfulness and cancelled the dish. Such great service!!! We were impressed!
Other then a wrong pre order everything else was good. Wish the restaurant could tell me that Sea bass pre order is not required.
Every dish was executed very well. Special mention for the Peking Duck, abalone with vegetables and fried patin fish in Thai sauce.
Scholar’s food has been consistent in quality & taste and portions are also good-sized!
Manager was attentive even though restaurant was crowded. The sea bass served tasted “too muddy” for our liking and informed the manager about it. He was swift in responding that he would cancel that dish for us and not charge us for it. Roasted meat “shio ba” was tender, juicy with the skin retaining its awesome crunch. Quality of food is consistently good over the years we have been patronising.
The Manager, Sebastian Chia was most helpful and pleasant. He allowed our bill to be charged to 4 different membership cards and made us feel so welcome. The menu chosen with his help was very good, and as we brought a small cake to celebrate our sister’s birthday, he happily helped us with the candle, the cutting and the provision of plates and cutlery for our distribution of the cake pieces.
Whilst the restaurant was clearly understaffed, the staff were nonetheless quite attentive. I just wonder how sustainable this is. Otherwise we had a great experience. Perhaps one point to consider is whether you can spread out the dishes so that they don’t all come at the same time. All the dishes were cold quite quickly.
Food was very good. Service was good too. Did not have my reservation booked under Quandoo. Had to show my electronic reservation. Even after showing me the table, they did not include it in their reservation list - guests were told no such reservation. Need to improve on their reservation process.
It was a pleasant visit. The food and service were good. We were escorted to sit in a smaller room away from the main area so it was quieter but service crews were still around to wait at tables.
enjoy most visits. all good this time except the roasted meat platter was a tat bit too "wet".. sauce too much. might want to separate the sauce next time or ask customers what they prefer. still a rest i like to dine in.
