I was really excited to try Flying fish and there has been a lot of great review about the food.
I made the booking back in December to try out there degustation menu
From the menu the selection looked awesome , additionally I orders a sushi carb which was very impressive.
The food was wonderful and interesting however there was a disappointment in the food being very salty .
Maybe I went just before the Christmas holiday however that is not really a acceptable excuse for such a prestiges Resturant . A lot of the dish was overwhelmed with the fast of salt, which was covering up the natural freshness of the seafood.
If I overlooked the excessive amount of salt , the favor combination was great. And impressive .
Some things like goat cheese I don't like at all and would choose to not eat it, however the peach and goat cheese combination was impressive.
The dessert was defiantly the highlight of the meal . It come with a very interesting story.
Basically the Resturant put out A challenge for the cooks to do a rotation. Where they will need to come up with a dessert idea and server it.
The cook which was responsible for the dessert I had actually didn't know what he was going to make and cover a ciggie and ashing into the flower pot he figured he will make a pot with ciggie buds.
Go figure in the presentation lol shocker but dame funnie , but taste awesome !!
Menu: 8/10 for freshness of the food and combination
Food : 4/10 the salt was unbearable , I drank so much water I keep running. To the bathroom ;(
For the price I paid and the actual quality of the cooking I was really disappointed. Com'on who leaves a stupid sue chef that has taste issues to cook the food?? I was pretty much eating half a bottle of salt with each course >=(
Ambience : 8/10 Nice location, guess the main cost of the meal was the view
The door staff was umm not very friendly and arrogant . Told her in had a booking and she look like she cant find the booking and just wondered off to space and left my party starring after her. Good impression she made before I even sat down to eat.
The staff that looked after my table was very sweet and friendly which compensated on the unfriendly welcome at the door .
From where I was sitting some staff was really busy and others such as the kitchen preparation team and cooks had too much time to joke and do nothing but stand and stare at the customer. Not so comforting when ingot such salty food . Epic fail for Flying Fish !!
cost : 200+
Overall comments :
I would like to try it again when the stupid chef that cook my meal is not there but considering the price and the not so great experience . I can eat at much worthwhile Resturant . So this would definitely be the last place on my list to revisit .
