In the past we have heard so much about Applebee’s from friends who enjoyed having their meals there and tried one here and there. And after having not so pleasant experiences from a couple of their outlets I was actually reluctant to go into another […]

For the first time we decided to visit La Terraza and have lunch on my birthday as we were checked in at the Hilton. Though the published time was at 12 noon, we were informed that the lunch buffet will begin at 12:30. Waiting was ok […]
Had dinner here last night to celebrate my birthday and me and my family are all praises for Royal Orchid. We ordered crispy honey chicken and siu mai for appetizers, mixed fried rice, beef in oyster sauce, chicken in lemon butter sauce and some huge grilled shrimps. Everything tasted wonderful with the siu mai being such a delight- juicy and very tasty.
What I like best with the food here is unlike some restos claiming to have authentic Chinese tasting food (and yet the dishes all tastes the same), Royal Orchid’s dishes tasted distinctively different from one another. We want to come back but it seems yesterday night was the last night for them at Hilton. In fact we were one of the few lucky last ones to dine. The food server Mr.Joseph is highly commendable as he is very knowledgeable. We asked him about some of the dishes, some were having Chinese and Thai names on the menu and he generously gave suggestions when he noticed that we were having thoughts on what to order. He also gave us some mango pudding to taste.
All in all I’d rate the place as excellent except that I’d prefer the place to increase the lighting a bit more. We’re hoping to see more of this restaurant when it comes back after about a couple of months and that we’re also hoping that they still have jolly Mr.Joseph amongst their line up of pleasant staff.

I’ve always been curious about this cafe at Al Wahda Mall here in Abu Dhabi. From what I know about Fashion TV is that it’s a TV channel featuring high end models and designers from all over the world. So what does a ‘cafe’ have […]
