I heard lot of people say melt cafe not bad, J65 so-so, Plaza Brasseries not worth it, Marriot cafe now got 1-for-1.

Sent from A universe Where pink PWNED everything using GAGT
I have tried all.
My favourite 3: Jen (Orchard central) , Marriott and colony

first time at colony today. it was good but not really wow-ed by the selection, especially the cooked food section. my favourites were the oysters, crab legs (very sweet) and grilled lobsters. desserts were so-so with nothing really outstanding apart from the pralines.

Imo colony > edge > melt.

Colony has both taste n variety. Edge has variety but not so much tasty food. Melt ler ... nice choc cake?

Melt is mostly known for their desserts. Everything else is......

I mean at that price one would at least expect oyster on ice....instead I see mussels and prawns. No crabs as well. Pretty bad seafood in general.

Their Indian food is impressive but considering 80% of it is vegetarian.....

The cheese and bread section is pretty ok as well but I'm not paying that amount to go there to jiak roti tao.

Not much of an impression on the rest of the food so it's probably very meh.

Seriously the only thing I enjoy there were desserts and I don't really like sweet stuff so basically I didn't like melt at all.

If the promo is 50% off every 2nd diner, and there are even number of diners, it is equal to
25% off right?
It is not 1 for 1, not 50% for both diners, am I right?

Yes, 1st person, pay 100%, 2nd person, pay 50% = pay 150% for 2 pax or pay 75% per pax (effectively 25% discount per pax for even nos).

It is not the same as 1 for 1 or 50% discount for all etc.

Also, some places do not apply the discount for service charge. Eg, for the 50% off 2nd diner, its still 10% service charge based on full 100% price. The 50% discount is only applied to the 'base food' price.

Aquamarine, 333 n Marriott cafe practise this method of charging.

Gotta throw in a recommendation for Straights kitchen - really great local food and nice selection. Service is great and the place looks really nice
