Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

They use to call this place Singapore restaurant.. Sorry but I have been there twice and the food is horrible, according to asian standard. If you never tried Singapore/Asian food in asia, then it will not affect you much...

It is still called Singapore. The served part of the restaurant is named "The Raffles".

In these cases, I usually suggest "Look for the guy with horns". No, I am not being sarcastic/taking you for a ride/speaking in codes. I mean literally

Well . . . I guess that is what a ranged event like this is all about - some restaurants are better than others. So what do we do? If you ask any Indian nationals, they will tell you that all Indian restuarants here are nowhere near as good as back home. Same goes for most Chinese people here.
We can`t go all the way to Singapore. I pcik the restaurants either by recommendation or otherwise based on internet reviews. Most of the reviews for this place seemed good. I`m sorry you had a bad experience but thanks for sharing that with us - just before we go.
