Excellent service! ...not Singaporean though...

Post by kristyna » Fri, 24 Oct 2008 10:13 am

Hi guys, I feel I have to share this experience with you guys:

We went to Fish&Co. in the Centrepoint on Orchard on Saturday and the service was just magic.
The girl was so nice. Brought us the high chair, plate and cutlery for the kid without even being asked to do so. She warned us in advance that the rice is gonna be spicy, so it is not the best baby food :) but she can ask the chef not to put the spicy stuff in it. Got us some more tissues for the messy kid, while she was having her feed (the kid was having the feed :lol: ). etc....
Went there yesterday and she recommended us a promotion meal - if you order side dish with the main course and soft drink it is cheaper...Got the kid beer mats - plastic colourful ones - to play with....

I will tell you, guys, what a difference!
We never used to give tips here in Singapore as they charge the bloody fee for their sometimes very poor service. So this was the first time since Feb., my husband did it. He was so overwhelmed, that he gave a 20% tip :lol:

AND GUESS WHAT, THE GIRL IS NOT SINGAPOREAN, SHE IS CHINESE FROM SICHUAN!!! that's why....! Her name is Rainbow, by the way...how cute:-)

So, Fish&Co. in Centrepoint strongly recommended. And the meal is nice as well.
Also Maharaja restaurant in the newly renovated colonial style houses behind Centrepoint is excellent.

Interesting....my teenage daughter and I were in Singapore this week. We ate at Fish and Co. near Park Mall for lunch. We were shown a table in a corner and forgotten. Daughter had to go find someone to take our order. We both asked for water and received hot water in a glasses that didn't look clean. Our order came and the meal was fine, fish and chips, nothing fancy. We again had to find someone for the bill. I won't go there again at lunchtime. They seemed to be more interested in the business people than shoppers/visitors.

We were at Fish & Co in Great World City yesterday with our 3 young kids, and I have to say that we also noted how good the service was. Very unusual for Singapore. Every single person in that restaurant was polite, courteous, caring, and basically using their common sense (another unusual thing for Singapore). My husband and I were pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately, the food isn't outstanding but who cares - it was a really pleasant (cheap) dining experience.
