Farewell Dinner with Ex-colleague at Crystal Jade (La Mian Xiao Long Bao)

It was a Tuesday (30 July 2013) and Xiang Bao organized a farewell dinner together with his “god-sister” as she will be leaving company and going oversea to be with her hubby. Since we had eaten over at Crystal Jade located at Holland Village branch before, we decided to have our farewell dinner at this place.

Waiting for our turn to enter the restaurant

As we were early and the restaurant was not opened for business (Buffet section), we had to wait for them to start and go up to have our dinner. There were many others who were also waiting to have their dinner fix over at this place too and this was even when we had reserved our tables in advance.

When the restaurant started to open for business, we were guided to our table without much delay and the staff were quick to handle the rest of the customers to their tables. Within a few minutes, the whole restaurant at level 2 which was allocated for the steamboat buffet was full of customers. We did not waste our time and started to order our dishes during these time.

Though I would say the space between each tables were quite near to each other and if the restaurant were full house, it would be quite noisy and crowded with not much space to move around as the staff were quite busy serving and clearing up empty plates. If the table you were seated at where at one hidden corner, you would have some problem in getting the attention of the staff to answer to your request and etc.
