Rattana Thai Restaurant @ Tanjong Pagar Plaza

Leave a comment


Hubby bought a Groupon voucher for this Rattana Thai Restaurant at $30 for 2 pax. It’s located at an interesting junction where one side is the one of the busiest business district, while on the other side is the old Tanjong Pagar Plaza. What totally surprised me is the fact that there are HDB flats around the area. I wonder how much these apartments cost. It’s no surprise that many are willing to pay the sky high price when your not-so-humble abode is a 5-minute stroll from your office.


The food was average. I don’t know why the meal was meant for 2 pax when there were only 3 prawns. And the staff came to inform us that there was durian ice cream and only returned again to disappoint us. When the ice cream was served, one third of it has melted, and the staff explained, although apologetic, that someone did not shut the fridge properly.

… …

As if I care about your fridge. If the food was not presentable, why did you still serve this food?

One can tell so much from these little incidents…


Am I missing something here? Look at the receipt above. There was $3 charged as the service charge $30 Groupon voucher (yeah, they do charge even if the service was not up to standard), and then there was another overall service charge. A service charge for a service charge?

Sounds like a scam?

If my hubby had not stopped me, I would have asked them explain this wonderfully uncomfortable logic to me.

Lastly, perhaps they did not thank us verbally when we left the place was because there was a “Thank You” on the receipt. Oh, it also asked us to return again. However, looking at how their jaw-dropping accounting skills has stunned me, I guess it’s hard to return for a second try.
