The Dining Room is the all-day cafe of the Frasers Suites at River Valley, just behind Valley Point. It is meant to be an amenity for residents of the serviced apartments but is open to the general public.
They have a full menu offering Asian items, like satay and crispy prawn noodles, as well as western dishes such as grilled chicken and pastas. The set lunch menu changes weekly. There is a choice of Japanese Bento Set, a Western Set or a Local Set.
The interior decor is simple and elegant with tables that are well spaced out. There is also an alfresco dining area.
We ordered the mixed grill sausages set ($11) and the salted fish fried rice set ($10). The sets come with coffee and ice cream. We also ordered the soup of the day ($5).
The Dining Room’s staff were polite and helpful. They took time to explain to us different types of sausages included in the set; and were accommodating when other customers made special requests such as having fries instead of mashed potatoes.
The food was served quite promptly. Each dish was nicely presented. The mushroom truffle soup was a little disappointing as we would have liked it to be a bit thicker. The salted fish fried rice was rather unusual but was tasty. The beef and chicken sausages came with a very generous base of smooth well mashed potatoes.
We were slightly surprised when they served the ice cream by giving each of us a cup of King’s Grand tiramisu ice cream.
The Dining Room really offers good value, especially when you consider that there is no 10% service charge added to your bill. It is one of the best dining option if you are in that part of River Valley Road. We will definitely return to the Dining Room when we want a simple meal in a pleasant unhurried environment.
