This post is based on Signature Set Menu (RM165) and Executive Set Lunch (RM65) by Soleil.


Food:

Signature Set Menu (3-Course)


Ahi Tuna Saku Tartare was overly creamy and greasy from the Buttermilk base. Tuna was okay-fresh, Smoked Eel Sorbet adds a smokey aroma to the Tuna.


Charcoal Grilled Wagyu Petit Tender was requested for Medium-rare but came out Medium-well. The steak was rough and had a weird smell (like the beef-wasn’t-fresh kinda smell). Even the Red Wine Jus couldn’t save it.


Dark Chocolate & Foie Gras was so hard to crack open, they should prepare a hammer instead. The chocolate tasted cheap, and didn’t blend well with the Foie Gras.


Executive Lunch Set (3-Course)


Grilled Baby Octopus was very fishy, the Tomato Consommé was sweet and sour in a weird way which I couldn’t appreciate. Horrible plating too.


Charcoal Grilled Wagyu Beef Burger bun was dry, patty was decent but the Homemade BBQ Sauce was weird (like expired BBQ Sauce, it was very runny too). Didn’t go well with the patty.


Lemon Cheesecake was very dry, but taste was decent. Cheesecake had a hint of lemon flavour. Tasted better than the Chocolate & Foie Gras dessert.


Complimentary bread had strong doughy taste.


Service:

Extremely slow and inattentive. Took very long in between courses. Wouldn’t recommend for those who only have an hour to dine.


Ambience:

Modern interior, clean and comfortable seatings.

I’ve been here 2 years ago for their Degustation Menu and I was disappointed. 2 years later I was equally disappointed.
