My second lohei celebration was with JW’s friends at Szechuan Douhua Restaurant, located on the 60th floor of UOB plaza. The spectacular view of the city skyline and Marina Bay Sands is one of the key highlights of the restaurant.

At S$28++ per pax for the dimsum set, the food was not bad as there was a wide selection of dim sum. However, if given a choice, I would still prefer Royal China or Peach Garden .

The main grouse that we had was the service, or rather, lack thereof. The service here was somewhat lacklustre due to the long waiting time and the servers’ lack of attentiveness. There was hardly any other guests around but the restaurant seemed so severely shorthanded that we had much difficulty trying to attract the servers’ attention.

We certainly didn’t see this coming from a supposedly top class restaurant. Save for the picturesque scenery and ambiance, Si Chuan Dou Hua didn’t quite cut it for me. Nonetheless, we did have fun chatting away and taking photos of the beautiful view before it started pouring!
