A REVOLVING LUNCH

Today, DS and I were at the Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant for lunch, for the first time. Established since 1977, this is an award-winning Chinese restaurant, and one of the two only revolving restaurants in Singapore.

Despite its less attractive location which is outside the city centre, the restaurant was packed with customers this afternoon and thus was very noisy. I think this is not unusual in a busy Chinese restaurant in Singapore. 😦

Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant is well known for its Peking Duck. DS likes Peking Duck but too bad that their serving is only on a per duck basis, and this is definitely far too large the portion for just the two of us. Its Dim Sum seemed very popular as well but we decided to give it a miss.

Resort World at Sentosa will be the home of Universal Studios Singapore. Can you spot the giant Merlion, a landmark of Sentosa Island?Prima View2

I wonder is it the panaromic view or the food that has attracted many customers to this restaurant. I think the food was good but not very fantastic. View-wise, it was definitely worth the visit but I still prefer the Equinox (at Swissotel the Stamford) and Hai Tian Lou (at Pan Pacific Hotel) which offer better views although both are not revolving restaurants.
