It had been a long time since I had buffet dinner with the guys so we decided to meet up at Clementi Mall to have dinner on Saturday (13 July 2013) at Seoul Garden which was a newly opened restaurant at Clementi area.
The place looks clean with only a few dishes of cooked food were placed on the side of the dining area unlike the rest of the branch which place all raw and cooked food at the side of the restaurant for customer to get their own food themselves.
Customer will be able to order raw dishes either from the monitor next to each table or order directly from the staff who was walking by. The tables were quite near to each other which I am not really comfortable with and the place was quite noisy with lots of people trying to chat up with one another while having their fill at this restaurant.
The staff seems to be busy walking here and there but was still able to served you with a smile when you got their attention which was still good.
There was also a dessert corner where you can make your own ice-kachang or some fruits and cakes. Overall, the place was neat and tidy unlike most of the buffet place where dishes were all messed by due to customer anyhow take or mixed raw dishes together with each other.

After having our fill at Seoul Garden, we decided to go and find a place to chill out and since I had a car (Borrowed from my sister), we decided to go Buona Vista area to chill out. Actually we chosen to go to Michael previous workplace restaurant to have some dessert and chill out but too bad when we were there, they told us that their kitchen was closed and would not be able to sell finger food and etc to us.
Feeling a bit disappointed, we decided to walk around the area for a place to chill out instead and we saw this restaurant called “Pies & Coffee” and decided to chill out at this restaurant instead.
There were not much people over at this place and it was a nice place for chilling out with friend as the place had indoor and outdoor tables for customer to choose from.
Almost all the things were self service at this cafe for example, we need to find out own tables (Very easy to find while we were there) and we need to queue up to order then back to the counter to get our drinks. Even the tables which previous customer had left a bit of mess, it took the staff quite a while before clearing the tables.
Even though there were few people around, I felt that the service level was not really that high. To give a bit of credits, the staff at the counter were very friendly and was able to introduce some of the drinks to us when we do not know what to order.
After ordering our drinks, they handled a device to us and was asked to go back to our seat and wait for the device to sound and vibrate before going back to counter and get our drinks. Interesting device and was good as it allow us to go back to our seats to wait instead of standing there waiting for our drinks.
