Imperial Treasure Steamboat Restaurant

Was intending to head for Taste Paradise in ION, when my mum decided to had steamboat for lunch instead. Perhaps due to a weekend, and no reservation was made beforehand, thus we were given the option to "clean" out the table by 1300 hours. One and a half hour, should be more than sufficient right?

Before anything else, laid before us are these 12 sauces ($2.00/pax). Not really sure what are all these individual sauces, but they will keep on reminding you to scoop the sauces, as they will be removing it away.. Sounds like we don't get the chance to refill, though we still can...

We had two soup bases, which are pork bone and chicken soup.

Here are some of the items we ordered from their ala-carte menu. Most we ordered were in a portion.

Japanese Mushroom ($5.00)

Kurobuta Prok Belly ($12.00).

Australian Beef Brisket ($18.00).

Luncheon Meat ($5.00).

Fresh Pork Ball ($8.00) and Fish Ball.

Shrimp Wanton ($8.00).

Silky Beancurd ($3.50).

Assorted Vegetable ($6.00).

Half Drunken Chicken ($20.00). We were "awed with surprise" as we didn't expect half a chicken to be this size... Thus, we actually ordered another half to make up for this insufficient amount of meat...

In addition, we also ordered their Wu Don noodles ($4.00)...

Food is barely a pass, though crew service is still satisfactory. Pork Bone soup is tastier than the other, but quality of the soup changed when the drunken chicken together with the alcoholic marination was thrown in... 

We were full not because of the food, as you can see the amount of each portion is pretty limited and pricey, but because of the soup that we kept sipping on. Our total bill came to about $230, which I felt can be well-spent in other places with nicer food.

Located in town, and situated along with other classy restaurants on the same level, it seems like there's really a need for improvement.
