Reviews

From the Burpple community

Went there for early dinner yet a queue was forming at 5.45pm. Our second time back here so we know the portions were huge. We shared 4 mains amongst 5 pax. The truffle mushroom pizza, fish & chips, burger were all yummy. The curly fries were generous too! Total price without drinks using 1-1 was $56.50. As we were rushing for a concert at Scape, we didn’t have time to do a review. You can get a free Takeaway Coffee if you present your review to the cashier. Reasonable price for decent food in the middle of Orchard Road.

Absolute horrific experiences! (Yes, plural, because I've been to Assembly Ground TWICE.)

First time I went there with my girlfriend, ordered the prawn pasta, which was great in taste! BUT food service was so slow, and it took them almost 20 to 30 minutes to serve the food. WORSE STILL. We only got served our appetisers (chicken poppers) AFTER we had finished our mains. Even the waitress serving our table was absolutely embarrassed. I mean seriously, who waits 20 minutes without appetisers, and then proceeds to serve it after mains? But food was good, so we decided to let it go and try it one more time.

AND WE REGRETTED. Second time (today) that I went with my girlfriend and our university friends. It was actually my friend's birthday and she loved pasta, so we decided to give Assembly Ground another try. On a positive note, yes, they finally learnt to serve appetisers (truffle fries, which yes, was filling and large in quantity), BUT WOW we got served our first pasta 30 MINUTES after our order... as usual we wouldn't start until everyone's food arrived... BUT EVEN AFTER 50 MINUTES after our order we were still waiting for ONE MORE PASTA. WORSE STILL: it was my birthday friend's pasta. Come on, gosh. We kept asking the staff where our mains were, and all they could say were the same old excuses: "Sorry, we'll rush your order, it should becoming soon."

Now I work in the services industry, so I know sometimes it ain't the service staff's fault. (Don't blame the person who serves the food, blame the person who cooks the food.) So come on Assembly Ground, the table beside us, who ordered like maybe 15 minutes after us, were literally served ALL THREE BURGERS BEFORE US. That's absolute horrific, how could you afford to let three people wait for one dish that's gone missing? And worse still, how on earth can you justify waiting 50 minutes for pasta? Jesus. Doesn't help that it was the birthday girl and I was the one who suggested eating here. You not only made her fun-gry, you embarrased me because I brought them here.

Absolutely disgraceful. Your chefs need to "wake up their idea". If I could rate 0 I would, because I've been absolutely embarrased by you guys, but I can't, so 1 star it is for you.

Good food doesn't mean you get away with absolutely disgusting food service standards. And yes, the waiter acknowledged it was my friend's birthday but only apologised. You guys should do better, at least serve her a coffee or something. MAKE IT UP TO HER. Jesus.

The Umami Prawn was amazing! So so good, highly recommend. Has a lot of flavour! 4 prawns only.

Avoid the Salmon pasta (it’s a new dish!), the pasta tastes weird and lack of flavour. Salmon is nice though.

i brought my siblings to try out this place (my 2nd visit, my 1st visit i didnt use burpple) and we ordered 2 1-for-1 main dishes (burgers) & ordered one side dish fried chicken wings (which is not included in the promotion). we couldnt finish the chicken wings (only ate 1) - as u can see from the photo (there’s arnd 7/8) so we asked if we can takeaway. one of the server was about to wrap it up for me when this lady came over and was like “wait. yall used burpple right? did you read the terms and conditions? no takeaway allowed” i was quite taken aback and replied nicely “i understand, but this wings is not under the burpple promotion can we -“ before i got to finish, she cut me off and raised her voice “SAME. SAME RECEIPT SO CANNOT TAKEAWAY” and just walked away. end up we ate one more chicken wing and had to waste 5 GOOD WINGS for no good reason.

WILL NEVER RETURN. AND WILL NEVER RECOMMEND TO ANY FRIENDS.

4/10
The patty of the burger is a steak and we order it medium. However it was too raw in the inside and it was impossible to cut it as well. Only a thin layer of outer surface is cooked. Just hope it was just inconsistency in the cooking because I totally see myself loving this set.

The fries is cooked really well, the bun is toasted and it’s so buttery. The patty is the reason why I won’t go back again.

Had a really good experience at The Cathay outlet thus gave it another go but this time at Cineleisure. For burgers, we ordered the B supreme Plus as well as the Boom Chicka Wow Wow (not sure if I spelt that correctly). Both portions were HUGE (we couldn't finish the fries.. top up $2.50 to get truffle fries instead), the curly fries were one of the best I've had. Honestly, we all preferred B supreme plus to the other one as it's got more flavours (beef patty, 2 huge slices of bacon, egg, caramelized onions and the bun was soft on the inside and sort of crispy on the outside).

Pasta wise, we ordered crab pomodoro as well as umami prawn. The latter was generous with the crab meat so it's sooooo worth it! However, the umami prawn was not as nice as I expected, it did not taste like it was labelled as (umami) and the prawns did not taste as fresh.. Both portions are huge as well. Overall, I would really recommend the B supreme plus and the crab pomodoro. With burpple 1-for-1, the whole meal was sooo worth it and I do not mind coming back even without the deal :D
