I can only comment on my experience and I only tried Abode for a quick lunch. It was very good. I can't fault the service. The food I had was good, nothing to get excited about, but I did go for a basic Express lunch, so it was as good as expected. What stands out is the lovely interior this place has. Plantation shutters give it somewhat romantic, holiday vibe. Seats are extremely comfortable and a bit fancy. Lovely place! Will not hesitate to come back.

I have been here twice previously - once for a high tea party and once for dinner. While I thought the service was slow , I was happy with the food quality both times. This time I came for dinner again and made my booking through TheFork Redemption offer, and the food lived up to my expectations once more. However, the service was terrible - we stood inside the restaurant for a while before someone spotted us and took us to our table; for the entire time we were there, it was difficult to get the waiter/waitresses attention; when the bill came, the waitress did not ask or remind me about the $20 redemption. I noticed that the $20 redemption was not deducted from my bill immediately after paying, and when I asked the waitress about this, she impatiently told me that since I did not mention the reward offer prior to paying, I can no longer get the offer, and they cannot refund the 10000 points back to my Fork account. The waitress then just walked away from me without an apology. Otherwise, the seating was comfortable but the background music was a bit too loud.

Felt menu needed a few more mains dishes & wine was over priced.

Great service, great food, good price and chill atmosphere. We had the high tea which was delicious but ratio of savoury to dessert was 1:3 - would prefer more savoury finger foods.

The menu is very simple and somewhat limited. The pasta was overcooked however so would go for other options.
