nariko's Review ‹ Back to The Phoenician at Junction
What happened? This restaurant was always pricey, but never disappointed, but lunch on a Friday was horrid. While the restaurant was long open, staff were still mopping the floor, leaving a stench of detergents in the air. Chair backs are shiny and grimy, renew that dirty upholstery! Three starters and a lunch box took 45 minutes. Kitchen staff were joking around loudly, too busy to cook food obviously. The ridiculously overpriced bento box was awful, all cooked items greasy and unappetizing, the few pieces of sushi looking like leftovers form the day before. Our waiter was superb, attentive and observing, but the food was abysmal, no wonder there were just 5 [!] patrons during the whole lunch service. Pull up your socks, way, way up high - this place is doomed otherwise.
