I beg to differ. The view, excellent foie gras, main course, fresh oysters and salmon sashimi (or ikura sushi in your case) are easily worth the $52. Of cos if you only eat 1 portion of foie gras, 1 oyster, a few slices of sashimi, then different case, heehee.

Not to mention if its only 2 paxs, it will just be $34.70! So thks beta for bring the whole lot of us rather than 1 of your gfs
Yeah, if only 2 persons going then worth it. For me, no oysters and sashimi I don't eat much so not worth for me. Beside I still preferred hot foods more.

I usually boycott places that refuse to let people take food photos.
What is wrong with taking pictures
Well, their place, their rules. I can sympathise tat sometimes it can be disruptive to other diners. There was once or twice, i end up having to wait as someone was taking photo of the food. Also, i do not like to accidentally end up in someone else's photos, even though the main focus is the food.

Anyways, they did not stop us from taking photos of the food at our table. Wat i can't stand are restaurants which refuse to serve plain water ... n make diners pay for overpriced mineral water.
Each place has their own rules and regulations so I have nothing more to add. Some like Oscars don't allows you to take their deco but food wise they are ok.

Melt is still the best place for taking pictures of the foods. They let me in early before the buffet starts so the foods are still untouched by other diners.

I do post processing. I brighten them, make the colors more vivid cos i like brighter colors, sharpen the blur ones n add frame etc. Which ones too saturated? I go compare against the source pics. Me still learning how to do this properly.

i think u overdid it... it's too bright and sharp until looks not so natural..

for eg the lamb shoulder... beef sirlion... and to certain extent the oysters... i feel kinda over-did with the brightening... and most other photos over-did with the sharpening...

most of all the photos... can see like even noise of the background have been enhanced so becomes fuzzy fuzzy de... twtan's photos on other hand... noise is at minimal...

I think the contrast too high cause you sharpen it too much.

Oei, simi evil? You should be touched. Whenever see nice oysters, we will go 'These look nice. Hmmm, Kunoichi will love these. I know, lets take a photo for her to drool over!' Okay, maybe the last part is evil

Errr, i sorta recall them promoting the pretty korean waitresses as an attraction rather than handsome korean chef. So hows the waitresses over there? Pretty? Got flies over the sashimi?
