The décor is dated. Service is very good and pricing is high - it’s the Peninsula after all. The food is extremely meh; what’s served here would be considered below-average for a high-end restaurant in Singapore, Bangkok, Delhi, Mumbai, etc.

Amazing food. My favourite place to eat and drink. Although wrt drinking - take a mortgage out if you intend drinking wine. Although I think that is a general issue due to wine needing to be imported. But GREAT food.
