wonderful review. how does the DBS eCoupon work? what if you turn up and it's fully redeemed?
Thks. I'm not really sure how it works too as this is the first time i am using it.

I guess its certainly possible for you to turn up there to find tat the evouchers are fully redeemed since its only limited to 150.

Since its DBS tat issues the evouchers, there is not way for the restaurant to 'reserve' the evouchers for you too.

Good thing is they will ask you to show them the evoucher right at the start, so if its fully redeemed, at least you can then decide if you wish to go for the meal. DBS cc got 20% btw. If not, there are a lot of other eateries in clark quay area.

the variety @ starz very much lesser than the first time went.
Ya, Sakura has better spread than this. Not a single beef or lamb dish in sight.

A disappointing meal at Starz. I know at $23 nett, the varieties will not be much but never expected it to be like this.





Prawns - The only seafood on ice, at least it's fresh.



Indian Section - Only chicken curry and fish.

Zeh Zeh flipping Roti Prata on the pan. Not bad for hotel standard, crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Bagus with the chicken curry.






Parma Ham with melon - The saltiest ham I ever eaten, thanks goodness the sweetness of the melon tone it down a bit else it's just inedible.

Noodle and Soup Station



Clam Chowder - Was creamy and choked full of pieces of clams and veggies but later part the soup became less creamy and hardly any clams.



Shang Hai Noodle



Roast Chicken - At first it was on a plate, the chef said the chicken will look better on the tray so he transferred it there. I find it juicy though Toons said it's not tender enough.

The Sausage is very soft, I quite like it. The bake salmon so so only.



Toons had a lot of this Egg Omelette with onion.



Crispy Prata with curry chicken



Ice Creams - The Strawberry and Blackberry not bad, a bit sourish sweet. Toons like the Green Tea flavour.

Service is good which is the norm nowadays. The others who went for the 1 for 1 before the $23 voucher started said there are more and better dishes compared to today's limited range. With too little varieties and no beef or lamb on their menu, I hope this is not their usual standard. Desserts tasted like garden varieties save for the ice cream. Would I go back again? I don't think so, not with a spread like today's.
