Bottle Tree Park Seafood Restaurant
Missing something that only the people in the past experience? How about coming to Bottle Tree Park and once again experience something that most of us have missed? The kampong days!! So when you are here in Bottle Tree Park, Relax your senses and enjoy the breath-taking view that Bottle Tree Park has for you. Indulge in the serenity while enjoying our Chinese seafood cuisine that we have prepared for you. So come down today, it is just 20min away from the city!!
We prefer the indoors dining area but sometimes the waiters shouting across the restaurant for orders makes dining a little unbearable, albeit interesting at times. On days of good weather, we like to dine at the outdoor tables, minus the unwanted mosquitoes lingering around. So depending on your preference, make sure to choose your table (if available) wisely.
We relaxed and chilled there for about an hour enjoying the view of the pond and people fishing. The bill came up to be almost a hundred without any main course but just sides and beer! Their food was good but not very fantastic to cost that much. Oh wells, we enjoyed ourselves overall.
The seafood menu was good, has my favorite prawn roll with sweet sauce and my hubby's favorite Tom Yum soup that is not too spicy. The crabs and fish were fresh and in good size. The service crew were not too patient on that busy night with my deliberative hubby.
However the bill size saved the experience, I was expecting to pay about $120 or more for the meal but it was less than $100. Money well spent for the spread and quantity.
We ordered quite a variety of food but I could still remember two of the dishes vividly – scallop fried rice and tom yam soup. All the food tasted pretty delicious and we finished them all except for the scallop fried rice, not because it wasn’t nice but because their serving was really big! As for the tom yam soup, it was spicy enough to my liking and the portion of seafood in it was generous as well.
After the dinner, you can also explore other parts of the bottle tree park. Although it was pretty dark after our dinner, it does not cover the beauty of the place. I love the ambiance of the whole set up. The playgrounds, pedaling swans and many other interesting structures all gave an out-of-Singapore feel, away from the busy and fast-paced lifestyles. It was truly a unique Singapore experience.
My wife is very against this so we prefer to let the children go out to run a bit on their own after they finish their food. This restaurant offers a lot of space for young children to play after they finish their food. There is a pond where you can take the swan boat. There is also the playground.
It should be safe enough to let children run around a bit on their own in Singapore especially the whole compound seems to belong to the restaurant.
If there's some special place in the Yishun/Khatib area, I would say Bottle Tree Park is one of them. So be sure to go there at least once!
The place got a lot of activities to offer where people from all ages can enjoy and relax. These include fishing,prawning, boating, playing in the see-saw and more.
The food was also good! We ordered their Chili Crab with mantou (Yummy!!!), Kailan with garlic, roasted chicken (also tasty!), buttercream prawn, rice and fresh coconut juice. After that satisfying dinner, we started recommending the place to our friends and they liked it!
The food may be a bit expensive but it's worth it. Just don't forget to put some mosquito repellent before you go there, especially at night.
However, the restaurant is slightly inaccessible as I live far away from the location of the restaurant.
Anyway, one thing for sure, Bottle Tree Park Seafood Restaurant is an interesting place, but it's very expensive to dine there. A typical meal set for 4 person can cost up to S$130. The dishes are ordinary, nothing spectacular about them, You see them at a typical restaurant, food court etc... Tofu in Minced Meat Sauce, Sour & Spicy Garoupa and Sea Cucumber Stock. See what I mean? Despite that there's no service charge, I still find it too expensive for my liking. Going there once is enough.
Of all dishes I've had, the banana scallop stands out. It was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. In a word: mouth-watering. The Korea Style Golden Cereal Prawn was pretty tasty. Only issue was that I was incredibly thirsty after eating them.
The service deserves an applaud. The waiter was very knowledgeable as he introduced the restaurant's specialties without any difficulty. He was the reason why we ordered the banana scallops.
Food arrived within 15-20 minutes. Judging by the crowd at that time, i would say service was reasonably fast. Most importantly, dishes were piping hot and they looked very appealing.
This is a good place for kids as there's a playground and prawning and fishing stations. It's also a quiet and soothing place for chatting sessions.
