We started with the 1 order only dishes :-

Braised Superior Shark Fin with Crab Meat and Bamboo Fungus - avg to below avg, i'm not a shark fin fan, starchy as usual


Poached Prawns with Chinese Herbs - avg to above avg, the chinese herbal sauce is nice, prawns also quite fresh, but can be bigger


Deep-fried Soon Hock in Light Soya Sauce, good, yum yum


Braised Fish Maw & Mushroom in Superior Oyster Jus - avg, the mushrooms are big n tasteful though


Peony Jade Infamous Szechuan Smoked Duck - good, dunno why they called it infamous ... tot infamous means bad reputation, anyways, who cares, as long as the duckie is good. I liked it a lot, but if you dun like ducks or the smoked taste, then you might not like it, cos some of my colleagues did not dig it

Chilled Whole Abalone in Thai Style Sauce, avg - not an abalone fan


Deep-fried Live Crabs with Salt and Pepper - below avg, sigh, looks better than it tasted. Crab over fried, so dry, too small too



Sliced Pork Belly with Garlic Sauce -good, tender, fatty n the garlic sauce complements the meat well! We ordered 2 portions of this, think i ate 1.5 portions

Jellyfish in Szechuan Hot Sauce - below avg, jellyfish bland n chewy, hot sauce not hot, the chef should try some of duckie's death sauce to know wat is HOT!


Crispy Sliver Bait with Spiced Garlic - avg to below avg, looks like french fries ... not much taste of the fish


Prawns Salad with Mixed Fruits - did not try


Braised Sweet Corn Soup w Fresh Crab Meat - avg to below avg, tried 1 spoon, found it so so, quite starchy again. Preferred the Double-boiled Home Brew Soup. Like clear soups more.


Deep fried prawn biscuits - never try, though my colleagues say nice, crispy etc, i still dunno they would bother with prawn biscuits when you can order wasabi prawns or cereal prawns, oh well ...

Pan-Fried Prawns in Oats Cereal - good to above avg, fragrant and crispy, only complaint is that the prawns can be bigger!




Stir-fried Almond Cappuccino Pork Spare Rib - above avg, tender, quite fragrant, heehee, everyone noticed the coffee fragance when this was served, unfortunately, i found it a tad too sweet, else would rate it as good



Fried Prawns with Wasabi Mayo & Fish Roe - above avg, quite crispy, prawns again can be bigger, the wasabi sauce also a tad mild ...

Stir-fried String Beans with Dried Shrimps - avg to above avg, the beans still quite crunchy, n the dried shrimps gave the dish a nice fragrance.



Braised Egg Plant with Minced Pork in special sauce - above avg.


Steamed Barramundi with Lemon Jus - avg, first off, this dish took like 30 mins to come ... n it certainly tasted like they steamed it for 30 mins cos its overcooked. End up the meat not smooth. Fish was fresh though. I like the green chilli toppings used, but then again, i'm a green chilli fan, heehee, rest of my colleagues found it weird.




Stir-fried Sakura Chicken w Basil Leaves in Spicy Sauce - avg to above avg, chicken tender, sauce also quite decent



Dessert time! Sigh, wanted to try more dishes, but the rest of the peeps all surrendered liao ...

Hot Sweetened Red Bean Paste - above avg, not too sweet, n thick. Enjoyed it!

Ice Cream - avg


Their Hot Sago Cream with Sweet Corn & Coconut also nice, found it above avg. Not too sweet, but the taste is flavourful.


End up each 1 paid about $29 nett after the using the NTUC Plus 1 for 1 promo cos of the tea, wet tissues n peanuts. If dun want the peanuts, should be about $28 nett.

For $28 nett, i found it quite value for $. However, i would still prefer SCDH, since its only about $33/34 nett (with 4 pay 3 promo). The dishes are overall slightly nicer at SCDH, plus got free flow deep fried soon hock. Then again, we did not really try many dishes at Peony Jade.

1st 7 dishes are 1 order only. The crabs are below avg, n the abalone no biggie. Of the 7 dishes, the only ones which i find good are the duck, herbal prawns n fried soon hock.

$42.80++, but currently there is a 1 for 1 promo using NTUC Plus card. Will be about $29 nett. Less if you dun want the tea, tissue, peanuts etc.
