Good but overpriced. Service was confused and poor. Very noisy in the evenings. The lunch sets are okay but not dinner.

I am very disappointed with The Salted Plum. Obviously, reservation system is not up-to-date. I made a reservation for 23 Dec, 7.30pm and was excited to have a nice xmas meal with my friends (since this was our first visit, and we've heard so much good things about this) but was appalled to see that the shop was closed for a staff retreat from 22-25 Dec. As much as i understand that this retreat was deserving for all the staff, why are the customers not informed of this closure and worse still, allowing the system to take in reservations for the block-out dates. What's best was, I received a reminder on 23 Dec on my reservation (to remind me to not be late and that the seats will only be held for 5 mins - perhaps this system should also remind The Salted Plum to set their 'out-of-office' message instead of all these irrelevant emails to disappointed customers). And now i am submitting this feedback because this morning (24 Dec) the system triggered an email to request for my feedback, so here you go. In a gist, this incident clearly portrays/reflects the kind of customer service that your restaurant withhold. Thank you for such a wonderful evening.

Great service- the waitress even took the initiative to help us to exchange our can of unopened white grape for a colder one after we have left it unopened for some time so that it would taste better! Interesting porridge with gin added! The burnt chicken, braised pork, Taiwanese sausage are superb!!

Food was good, but most of it was served luke warm. I felt it would've tasted better if the food was piping hot. We got the porridge with the Monkey 47 gin, but the gin was not well flamed, and left the porridge tasting slightly bitter. Service was OK, could be better but they responded quickly when we wanted to change an order. At times there was a slightly language barrier but it was fine in the end. Recommended dishes: - Brussel sprouts - Burnt chilli chicken - Seafood porridge

Burpple Set for 2 was a very good deal and value for money. The portion was sufficient to feed 3-4 pax. Food and service are great too.

Please make it clearer that we have to indicate in the reservations if we want to use the Burpple set. Otherwise the food was pretty good, though prices are slightly steep.

Food was good on the whole. The prawns we had were not fresh and was very mushy. However, the restaurant quickly offered us a change of dish or to cancel the order from our bill which we appreciated. The lu rou could've been a little bit more tender and the crab meat had hints of fishiness but it wasn't too bad. Egg for the omelette was done very very well with wok hei and we all especially enjoyed the congee and the fried chicken which were so moreish. Would return again to see if they made improvements over time.

Visited this place after looking at Food King. There are really nice food like porridge, pork chop, fried mushroom, Wagyu beef and crab omelette. However the others like Lu Rou, fried taro and etc were just ordinary. Price was affordable but Service was bad. Staffs weren’t very keen to take orders from us nor delivering our orders. The dishes were served in awkward sequence. The rice and porridge came after 90% of the dishes were served. And the drinks were the last to service. We do understand that the restaurant is closing at certain hour and will not be holding up your closing however the way your staff came to tell us to leave is very rude instead using better manner. My friends are I were seriously shocked with the service.

Despite making reservations, staff did not prepare our seats in advance. Waited for about 15mins before we were let in. Not sure what is the point of making reservations if we needed to wait in the end.

Used burpple beyond and the 10 dishes meal was super amazing and worth it. The dishes were all very flavourful. All in all had a good dinner here. Will be back!

Chili chicken and sausage patty were very tasty but was disappointed with the beef belly. Service was excellent! Would come back again for its lu Rou. Thanks

Food is a tad salty. The 2nd level could have been better furnished/ kept tidy without boxes of soya sauce or other stuff stored and exposed to diners.

Lu Rou was amazing and is a must try item. Wanted to order their oyster omelet but off the menu. Will come back to try other dishes.

The flavouring of the food is too strong. Most food are very salty, I under the name is The Salted Plum but the taste is too strong.
