With consistent quality excellency, the Restaurant has undoubtedly attracted incessant food pleasure seekers, sufficing incessant one’s appetence, jam-packing the entire premises as well as the waiting list over the weekends. During the dialogue, in a very modest way, Mr. Philip added, I feel honoured to have our former Mr. President S. R. Nathan as a patron dining in our private room as well. To consistently actualize full waiting list every single weekend is also an achievement to me, added Mr. Philip.
Where the road of success is always in construction, having the hands full during the economic crisis in the year 2008 had been an arduous but abounding experiences for the team, said Mr. Philip.
