I came here with a girlfriend a few weeks ago, because ever since they reno-ed, I've always wanted to try their food since the place looked so nice and sleek from the outside. So before going out, I suggested to go here.
The service was good at first, and we were seated quickly. The menu compared to other HK cafes were much overpriced. I decided to be "safe" (or so i thought) and ordered chicken spaghetti with cheese and cream sauce.
Unusually, my food came quick, and I looked at the plate.
I did not see any chicken, more so something that looked like squid. There were tons of mushrooms that weren't even cooked. The spaghetti was lukewarm. And no cheese. I asked the waitress if this really was the plate I ordered, and asked why there was no chicken. She pointed at this white stuff and told me that was the chicken. Well I HAD to believe her.
I took a bite, the cream sauce did not taste like ANYTHING. It seemed like I was just shoving tasteless mayo into my mouth. The mushrooms were cold when I bit into them, and the chicken was the worst. It was some sort of artificial chicken, those things you find in cans. Plus, there weren't a lot of these artificial canned chicken in the dish either. The portions were smaller than what you get at any other cafes, and the drinks here are horrendously pricey as well. Also the specials don't have much choice.
Not a lot of people were there, and it was dinner time around 6pm. I should have noticed this and should have left quickly, because this was the first time I have ever pushed my plate away and refused to eat this. Even with adding a ton of salt did I not taste anything remotely good in my spaghetti. I did pay nonetheless, because I did choose this plate.
So, do be careful what you choose. The rice dishes may not be any different. I know now that I will never set foot in this place nor will I be telling anyone about I-Cafe either.
