Just came down in the late afternoon wanting to have some drinks to wind down and chill. Came down to the bar and was served by Siew Fung and Man Chew separately. Friendly and attentive, didn’t expect to have such a great quality service! They...have recommended me to go to their restaurant to have meals. Will definitely drop by next time! Thank you so much for the great service! Highly recommended for those who want to have drinks to wind down! The atmosphere is great too!More

Having visited Forest twice previously for business lunches, I brought my partner for a dinner date on a Friday evening as my previous visits were nothing short of amazing. However, I couldn’t say the same during my visit on 13th March and 2020. 1. Came...specially for their “Chicken Milky Soup”, Four Treasures Soup and Coconut Jello dessert. And guess what? Upon ordering, we were told that they ran out of Thai coconuts as there was a group booking. Well, I’m sure that both myself and that group booking had reserved our tables well in advance so that they can prepare their ingredients for that dinner seating, If that can’t be done, at least inform the customers when you hand them the menu before they order their food and not inform them only after they ORDERED. 2. When we placed our order, there were only 2 tables including us in the restaurant at 610pm. Told the waitress 2-3 times not to put spring onions into our soups and guess what again; chefs dumped spring onions into our soup. Forest being a restaurant with an open concept kitchen, we can totally hear the waitress speaking loudly to the chef saying this in mandarin; “Didn’t you see I had written no spring onions?????” before 2 servers and 1 chef started digging into our soups to remove the spring onions that’s not supposed to be there. I guess this is not such a big deal but hey, I’m paying $42++ and $48++ for the soups therefore I do not expect such effortless plating (please see photos for the soups served to us during precious and this particular visit) and people digging into our soups before serving it to us. 3. Tiger prawn vermicelli - As good as before therefore no complaints :) 4. Mapo Tofu Rice - The rice itself was good and my partner enjoyed it however the fried fish skin that came along with it had already lost its crisp. God knows how long that have been left in the open. Didn’t bother to raise this feedback as we were already turned off from the bad experience during this visit. 5. As there’s no Thai coconuts available, we had to skip desserts as we specially came for the Coconut Jello dessert. 6. Asked for the bill but bill didn’t come in 10 minutes. We ended up settling the bill at the counter on our own as we just wanna get out of the restaurant ASAP. In my opinion, the quality of staff service and food could be better so as to justify the prices customers are paying at this restaurant. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to my friends and clients anymore.More

The food really didn't meet expectations, and in retrospect does seem very overpriced. Service was slow (seemed like they were short on staff) from the point of taking our orders to serving us the dishes. My party was quite underwhelmed.More

I had the wonderful CNY set menu. Some time ago I commented about how disappointed that they had chopped up the lobster into pieces instead of serving it in its tail. Glad to know they have taken my suggestions and improved. Service has also become...more attentive. No complaints at all this time!More
