The solitaire's bride review:
From Table set up during food tasting

I can only use feedback i've from the guests as i didn't get to eat much of the food on actual day myself and of course what i've eaten during food tasting.

The most unforgettable dish is the steam cod fillet with minced garlic. Somehow all the guests really loved this dish.

The deep fried spare ribs with yellow cream sauce is not a very popular dish as well as signature herbal empress chicken. Though the deep fried spare ribs is the love of my SO (hmmm strange). The soup of the signature herbal empress chicken is nice too but the meat like all dishes that are cooked in soup is a tad dry.

The braised ee-fu noodles is quite a unique tasty dish. The only dish that didn't really deliver both times during food tasting and actual day will be the sharks' fin soup. The ingredients are really not lacking but the soup still too bland on both counts.

From Hilton's Signature Cheesecake
I did tried the Hilton's signature's cheese cake during food tasting. I wouldn't give it raving review especially with someone with a sweet tooth. Its ok i suppose, just that it doesn't delight or surprise.

My colleagues love the vegetarian menu and find the presentation of the dishes very nice.

Overall i will give a thumbs up for the food, presentation and serving portions. The portions served by Hilton is really huge. At the very least, you are ensured with a full hearty meal.
