Aunt's BD - Peach Garden @ Novena Garden

It's Aunt birthday. My younger brother, Dax gave her a treat at Peach Garden @ Novena Garden. We had ala buffet dinner at S$38.00++ per pax (with UOB promotion - 1 dine free with 3 paying). The menu has about 31 items and we had tried most of it except for some soup, fish and chicken dishes we left out. The food was generally decent but only a few really stand out. Actually my expectation is much higher. To really compare, they served better food than the one at Thomson Plaza but still not impressive enough. I think Tung Lok at Paramount Hotel serve a better ala buffet than them.

We started off with our 1st round of ordering and they actually served all the food right away. It's really irritate me as before you actually settle down to have some tea and starts off with appetiser, your table already filled with all the dishes. We requested them to slow down the serving but they refused!!! The waitress said because it's a buffet, that's why... but is an ala carte what??? I think most of it are precooked and some of the food served was not piping hot. With this kind of price that we are paying, I rather pay a bit more for Cherry Garden. However, some of their dishes do stand out.
