Went on Friday night and ordered the ribeye steak and paella for two for sharing. They served the paella first (which I do not recommend as it just tastes like mussels + prawns + rice and serving size is not enough for two and not worth the price). Waited for nearly half an hour before asking the server about our steak. Was only told then that the steak order was not keyed in and we will need to wait twenty minutes more... so we left feeling hungry.

Make sure your server repeats your order back to you if you visit this place.

Plump and firm tiger prawns with fragrant garlic. Highly recommend! Dip the bread into the sauce and put some garlic on top too.

Ordered the one for one 20 skewers i.e. 40 skewers in total. Had a blast eating the different options in different seasoning, although we werent sure which was which when the skewers were served. Especially enjoyed the midwing and the enoki wrapped skewers! Quite oily though, so recommend to get a drink to "clear" the grease.

Ordered the 15 pcs dumplings party to try the different flavours and I enjoyed them all! Special shoutout to the crab and prawn dumpling flavour as it was unique and delicious. Also ate the miso mushroom noodles and wiped the bowl clean. Will come again at the appropriate timing so that i can use the burpple deal next time.

Finally got to eat at Oriole but forgot to check and the one for one deal was no longer available... we still ate there. I got the fish and chips while my partner got the pork ribs. Nothing special about the fish and chips except that it was quite a big serving. Whereas the pork ribs reminded me of ba kut teh with dark soya sauce and chilli. I enjoyed the latter more.

Got the fried snapper and was shocked at the huge serving size! Would recommend to share between two people as the fried batter becomes more jelat the more you eat it. Other than that, the fish was sweet and firm! Also note that they dont serve tap water for dinner - we had to purchase a $5 sparkling water instead.

Got the miso pork collar and the assembly burger. Was impressed that a steak (we chose medium doneness) was in the burger instead of a normal burger patty. Liked that it was flavorful but slightly tough to chew with the other burger ingredients. Enjoyed the pork collar but there's a slight "frozen taste".

Initially wanted to use my Burpple Beyond here but was told that it can't be used because it's PH eve. Oops I should have checked properly 🙈

But YW and I decided to try it out anyway and... I can't wait to go back again and use the 1-for-1 deal! The food was yummy 👍

He ordered the Black Port Lamb Shank ($28) while I got the Wild Mushroom Risotto ($22). And we also got the Calamari Rings to share ($12). Didn't get any alcohol but thought that their cocktails looked pretty good!

I generally try not to eat mutton but I stole a tiny bite of his lamb shank and wow it was so tender and flavorful! The meat easily came off the bone and I liked the special dark sauce that goes with the meat.

As for my risotto, this is one of the rare times I try risotto (cravings 🤭) so I can't really compare, but I liked it! There were different kinds of mushrooms and I love how they kind of make each bite taste different. And the soft, chewy texture of mushroom went so well with the al dente risotto rice.

Lastly, the calamari. It leans more towards the chewy side (as compared to the soft ones) *without* the annoying uncheweable, choking hazard parts (if you know what I'm referring to). Shout out to the unique breaded batter that was not too thick and complement the squid taste and texture perfectly.

Looking forward to using my 1-for-1 deal during my next visit 😚
