ClemCube Goes Vien


Due to increasing pressure from his peers to give a dinner treat as a result of his successful enrolment into Monash School Of Medicine, Henry magnanimously agreed. So he decided to give his closer friends a wonderful treat at this international buffet place called 'Vienna' @ United Square. It cost him 40 per person which meant a total bill amounting to 160. Haha pretty expensive you would say but I will do the same too because I think it's a great achievement to get accepted into a good school famous for that area of study.

At first look, the food in the buffet looked promising. I thought that for 40 bucks, it was natural for them to have seafood, sashimi, and other exotic stuff...they even have abalone rice! Which was actually pretty disgusting so I did not try..Their bold attempt at making shark's fin soup failed miserably as I could tell it was fake on my first taste. It tasted like latex (raw material used for manufacturing rubber), or at least I think it would. But Hian Liang was really satisfied with their dessert selections..which included some Jap ice cream, Chocolate Fondue (although the choice of fruits were few), and cheesecakes. Complement these with hashima and fruit cocktail, I do not have much complaints about their desserts.

However, I will like to comment on their Teppanyaki, it was awesomely YAK-KY. Their chicken and beef were served in overwhelming portions, and while it was the same for their lamb and fish, at least the latter didn't taste that bad. And the vegetables were much worse. If you go there never try that. Finally, their Pasta counter was fucking low-standard too. Their pasta sauce was hard to consume, and it didn't help when the serving looked so watery, nothing like those pastas you can find in Pastamania or even Cartel. Give me 40 bucks and I can cook much better pasta for you to eat man...

The highlight of the restaurant was their tea. All four of us showed our dark side when we took home quite a number of high-quality teabags when we were not supposed to..haha..but heck we didn't care. Apparently it was to make our money worth, since I was kinda disappointed with their main courses...

CLEMCUBE ratings for VIENNA International Seafood & Teppanyaki Buffet Restaurant:

Food: 2.5/5
Environment: 3.5/5
Price: 1/5

Overall: 2.5/5

CLEMCUBE will most likely not go there for a buffet meal in the future because it is too costly and considering the quality of food served there, CLEMCUBE maintains his stand that the 40 bucks per head is far too expensive and not worth it at all.

Here are some pictures taken by Henry during the buffet dinner...Hian Liang!! Send me your pix pls!!!

Henry and Myself

Hian Liang can't stop himself from indulging in the chocolate fondue..he kept standing next to the chocolate fountain and no one else had the chance of coating their fruits with chocolate.

ZZ accidentally chewing on plastic while consuming a plate of sushi. Should have seen the look on his face...looked really dumb haha.

The outstanding selection of tea @ Vienna

Sorry man, we still did it.

Also, I would like to take this chance to wish Hian Liang all the very best in whatever he does in Edinburgh...ORD LOH! Have fun studying dude! Don't let me catch you with a white chick next time man haha!

Oh..OCT 30..HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO RUSSEL!! Happy balls to you and meet up soon ok joker!
