I don’t know where to start 😉
It was unbelievably, jaw-droppingly, ama-zing.
I took a chance this time with organising G’s birthday. Monthly offers only gets released on the 1st and I had to pick an evening brunch for Thursday or Friday this week. The moment it came live on Monday morning, I found Nine7One‘s Above and Below deal….so I tried to google for some reviews but to my dismay found none 🙁
Must be new? Hmm :/
Shall we go? Hmm :/
Why not 🙂
So, my thoughts?
Moment we stepped in we were welcomed as though we were special, special people. It was a little too overwhelming to be honest, they gave us a tour of the buffet which was pretty impressive.
We were led to the courtyard where our long table had been set up for the group of 12. It was beautiful outside. Just soft background music, 20 degrees or so, calm – no wind because it was located in the podium in between the towers. Perfect.
From the first serve of seafood on ice, to the tasty prawn tempuras (that we got more helpings of), to the soup and spheres that pop in your mouth, to the perfectly medium lamb and beef steaks, and juicy chicken pieces. Everything was perfect.
Come sweets, we went for a tour as they showed us the different special desserts available. Then we went back to our tables where we were served delicious hot chocolate fondant and baked cheesecake.
Service was amazing, felt like we were in a properly organised banquet as the food was served to table with 3-4 staff tending to us at one time.
We had friends that had planned to do non-alcoholic package but changed their minds after seeing the drinks selection, ha ha. Waves to V and J. Mojitos, cocktails, rum punch, beers, wine. Anything. We were spoilt, spoilt, spoilt 🙂
The last time we were overly impressed was our first time dining in Sloane’s when we were got here. This now tops GHH (sorry, hee hee). It’s still fairly quiet, maybe because it’s new? G and I are thinking of heading back there again before the deal ends and before we fly home for Christmas.
They do Above and Below every Wednesday and Thursday evening so you’ve got a lot of time to try it before year ends for half the price. I recommend it for big groups as it’s a serve-to-table brunch so you can sit there and drink while you chat with friends, and they’ll just serve you for the next 4 hours.
Aw, I wish wish wish the deal would last fovever 😉
Cheers to Vikas for my special cocktail. To the chef who served us, we still couldn’t figure out where you’re from, and to all the other staff that took care of us. G had a super birthday dinner !
