We held our wedding dinner at Carlton Hotel. Initially,
I we were looking at Amara Sanctuary at Sentosa, Straits Ballroom at Fullerton Hotel, or even restaurants like White Rabbit. In the end we decided to hold it at Carlton Hotel because we wanted the Holy Matrimony in church. It was the nearest hotel to church anyway 🙂
Service had been quite warm on the wedding night. Even the coordinator who wasn’t very good with her words/EQ, had been warm and accommodating.
The only complaint we had is the tea smoked chicken. We quite liked that dish during the food tasting, yet on the actual day, the chicken had this really awful burnt smell. Like some kind of cigarette smell.
Apparently some of our relatives/friends complained, but was shrugged off by the asst banquet manager.
Even until the end of the banquet, when our friends complained again to the asst banquet manager in front of us, he said he was not in the position to offer any direct discount, even though the hubby had signed the bill just 5 mins ago.
And we were quite surprised by the smaller portion of food on our table compared to the food tasting. Our close family members were a little disappointed.
So in summary, we met up with the head chef from Wah Lok on the next day after our wedding. He admitted the chicken was overly smoked and not done properly. And when the hubby checked out on Monday, the coordinator said they will remove this dish from the menu and not recommend to couples who cannot take the strong taste.
Like sound like our fault. ZZZZ. We can only say that the only ones who got “smoked” here are us. LOL.
