No

Sashimi n seafood on ice came back though. The time i went, the durian paste also changed to 'hot' version. Not nice.

Hi! I need some guide here.

I am looking for dinner place for a group of around 10 diners.
I found some interesting options in eatigo and chope. May I know what should l pay attention at when using these booking accounts?

Comparing a particular restaurant, Chope listed a final bill price (1 for 1); eatigo listed different discount % for different time slot.

This is my understanding currently, please correct me if wrong.
If I use Chope, means I need to pay upfront then make reservation later. There is possibility the date I choose not available when I want to redeem.
If I use etigo, it is just booking first, pay on the dining day itself. It is discount rate, mean if there is only 9 diner come that day, I can inform before the time and only pay for 9 diners with same discount (let's say 50%) rate. So eatigo is less risky?

You can make the reservation via the chope website first (indicate you using chope vouchers in the remarks), then buy the chope vouchers.

Yes, eatigo discount is tied to timing rather than # of diners. So even if you book for 10 pax, end up 9 pax turn up also no prob. Same discount.

Yes, coz eatigo is just a booking. Even if last min you cannot go also nvm.
Whereas if you use chope voucher, you are stuck with the voucher if you dun go. Besides, vouchers come with all sorts of tnc, so i will always prefer eatigo if similar discount.

Booked dinner at Skirt Sentosa for 3 pax using Eatigo. Last minute, another friend wanted to join. Skirt refused to give us the discount because 4 of us turn up instead 3

Based in eatigo terms and condition for Singapore, the host must honor your reservation and discount 15 mins before and after your reservation time. Any timing beyond that is at their discretion. For the number of pax, there can be no changes unless the host agrees. I have been told by a few restaurants that they will not entertain last minute in person additions at promo prices. Also when one or two did not show up, some restaurants refused to honor the discount for the remaining attendees. In all such cases, you can call them inflexible but they are not wrong. Some restaurants are more forgiving than others.

For no show, 3 strikes and Eatigo will ban your account. This is fair.

Thanks for reply.
The timing choices has big gap. For example 5:30pm and next is 8pm.
Lets say after work, only manage to reach there around 6:15pm. It is more than 15 minutes late for 5:30pm and too early from 8pm. So if book either one also not right. And if it become unable to get the booked discount rate because of more than 15 minutes late, we will either continues with lesser discounted price or become no show.

Wah, will take note then. I will normally amend my reservation. I more scared they might not have table, esp if 2 become 3, or 4 become 5. Only 2-3 times i end up with more or less pax n luckily those times no issue.

Then you can either try to get someone to come in earlier for the 5.30pm slot or call the restaurant to notify them n see if they can extend the timing? Never ask never know

The point of Eatigo is to help most of these places on their off peak sales. Based on past experience, if the place you booked is popular, most likely they will reject you as they already have their own peak hour crowd (paying full price) which they want to cater to. If it is an ulu unpopular place, I did try to wait for my friend for 45 mins after the booking time but you need someone to be there within 15 mins of booking. But most often the food they serve are so so which is why it is not popular.
