Oriental Blossom

Restaurant : Oriental Blossom
Location : Marine Plaza, Marine Drive
Meal : Dinner
Table for 8Dinner at the Oriental Blossom has rarely ever been less than satisfactory, the place is classy, comfortable however the menu leaves a little of the Orient out and about and focuses mostly on the Chinese.

The Kim Chi is sweetish, the cucumbers fresh. You can gorge on them (though they arent as good as say Golden Dragon)

The appetizers were the fried corn curd and the crispy veggies, both of which were excellent. Absolutely great start.

We then had soups, sweet corn, tom yum (excellent) wanton (average) manchow (good)

The main courses were fairly controversial, the green beans with tofu in chilly black bean, the stuffed mushrooms with regular hakka noodles. Now, i liked the entrees and the noodles and i considered it all to be an excellent choice.

However some of my dinner companions hated the green beans, the mushrooms are actually a fairly popular choice for us and never dissapoints.

Overall, the food was good on all counts, not great but good across the board. The place itself is perfect for a celebration, classy, popular, comfortable with a good ambiance.

The service can be slow and scatter brained at times but is always friendly.

Food 9/10
Service 7/10

Damage - Dinner for 7 with 3 beers 4500 ($100)
