Food: all of the dishes I've had from here have been really good. Great variety to choose from as well.
Service: You order and go wait for your number to be called. Don't expect to be pampered or anything like that - you're in a food court!
Value: Great value for food - I don't expect to spend more than $14 for two meals including two cold drinks.
Ambiance: It's a mall food court but much better than most food courts. However, it's still a mall food court.
I would definitely return again!
Mrs. C and I were riding the new train to Richmond, and we decided to make a diversion to Aberdeen Centre for some lunch action. We scrambled up to the food court and saw a huge lineup for MC. Every time we go to the mall this place seems crowded, so must have good food or slow service.
Service was quick, and there were lots of choices on the menu, so we were encouraged about the quality of the offerings. I had lamb curry on rice and my beloved transit partner had chow mein noodles with chicken. We rounded off the meal with dong cafe and iced tea. Both were tasty and huge portions. Plus the meal was not expensive. I don't think it was the greatest ever, but for the price it was definitely quite good. As for ambiance it was a madhouse as usual, but clean enough for a food court.
Worth it if you are nearby.
This kiosk/stand (? what do you call restaurants in a food court?) is located at the Aberdeen Centre food court. Serving your typical Hong Kong style cafe dishes, this kiosk/stand is one of our favourite places to eat at whenever we’re at the mall. Along with your typical dishes, the prices are also pretty standard.
Baked Porkchop on Rice 焗豬扒飯 - $7.50 (5/7)
Typical dish. Typical tastes. Typical expectations. We’ve had better elsewhere, but you can’t really expect much from food court food. The rice to porkchop ratio is poor, but there’s lots of cheesy goodness. The one good thing about this place is that you DON’T have to wait 20 minutes for this baked item, unlike most Hong Kong style cafe’s.
This is one of the food vendors I had tried at Aberdeen Centre.
Food: It's ok. Hits and misses. I like baked seafood rice. My friend likes that stir fry beef noodle dish. He always orders that. Portion is generous. I don't like seafood fried rice though because I don't find lots seafood in it.
Service: Nothing to praise or complain. Just pay and go. Waiting time isn't too long, tolerable.
Value: It's definitely cheaper and better value than any vendor at any mall food court such like Richmond Centre or Pacific Centre. Food at food court just shouldn't be expensive, period.
Ambiance: Aberdeen foot court is more spacious than any other food court. If you go all the way back and sit near the window, you got natural light and view. It's actually comfortable, better than sitting in some dingy mom and pop shops. If I want cheap bite, I bypass mom and pop to com here. I only go to mom and pop that has really awesome food because I can't stand small dingy places.
This used to be one of my selection at the aberdeen food court, but after this incident, I will never support or eat at this place. The owners and the ppl who work there are cheaters!! I ordered a daily combo, supposebly to come with a choice of either a hot drink or cream of mushroom soup so I ordered the meal with the soup and I side ordered a cold milk tea which cost $1.75. Now if I didn't go with the soup, normally it cost $0.50 for the cold drink and another $0.50 for the bigger size like the side order $1.75 one. When I picked up my food, there was no soup, (the B*tch girl that works there is not only stupid but also have an attitude problem!) they informed me there was no mushroom soup but only can provide me with a vege tomato soup.
That was not my choice, so I spoke with perhaps who was the owner and chef there, I told them they never had told me ahead of time they didn't have that type of soup. so I ask them to reinburse me back $0.75. (Meaning I was to order the combo with a cold drink and upsize it which cost an extra $1.00 total, so the difference is 75 cents) They not only pretend to be stupid but didn't want to give me back my difference!! Anyone can do the math on that one. To me 75 cents is nothing, but to me b coz is such little, they still try to trick you and pretend to be stupid over 75 cents. They not only argue with you by pretending to not understand and playing stupid over 75 cents, but they were also rude! I think these ppl should not get anymore business for such dishonesty!!
The worst part is that they try to put you on the spot and make the other ppl around think that you are the one that's wrong and making a fuss over it.
