Food Park at Central Festival

Recommended Posts

GF and I were regulars at the old park. Dropped in last week and surprised how small and expensive the new one is. As you say you can eat in a small local place for less, without the crowds. I won't hurry back

The way I heard it the old place was to be closed for renovation and remodeling with an increase in size, and the  replacement at the other end of the Mall would be temporary. It would be surprising to have 2 places. I get the impression of a change in format in the slicker and more comfortable. I was wondering if there would be a change of focus, too and more representation of other oriental styles being introduced, ie Korean, Japanese and Malaysian, in a way copying the one in T21, and playing to the audience. Hardly surprising the improvements have come with an increase in prices, it was often busy and the opportunity to make more was there. The shopping part of the Mall I often found quiet. 

I expect it will do okay, despite better prices for Thai food being plentiful, being in the AC while eating is preferable. 

Great Report EP, was beginning to wonder where you were.

Eating his way back to PT apparently. Agreed a good report.

BTW, is the food court above the Royal Garden Plaza still there? I used to enjoy the sunset with a meal up there.

I haven't been up there for ages. I only pass through when traffic on Beach Rd is heavy, and I decide to get to Walking St via Second Rd.

I will have to see for myself in a few months.

Well last time I was up there it was a pretty small and to be honest I thought it was at the Second Rd end, which would not make it correct for a sunset meal. Perhaps I should take a look Wednesday evening en-route to the PT crawl.

Sounds like it was moved. It was up on the top floor Beach Rd side. It had a big outdoor balcony with seating inside as well. Lots of food choices.

You see, I never know where I am. Sense of direction goes to pot. I always thought the fountain was at  one particular end and that  had moved .
