- Chicken Risotto
- Vegetable Fettuccine
Not too much to say except ingredients were mostly fresh and both pastas were cooked fresh. They also didn’t skimp on ingredients either which is a plus.
Everything else about this meal was mediocre.
Both pastas were actually cooked well (being not over or undercooked). However it lacked any flavours that made the dishes stand out, with the fettuccine overly bland and the risotto too salty. Ultimately, both pastas seemed like something one could cook up at home.
As mentioned above, risotto was too salty. Contrasted with the bland fettuccine made it even worse.
Also had to ask for bread rolls to be provided (they used to give it out right after you order without asking).
Definitely not a remarkable meal. However it wasn’t in any way bad either.

At that price? Probably not. There just isn’t enough value added to justify for that kind of price tag.
