Skai

金曜日の夕食は、何度か行った「Skai」に行きました。最初の席は真上にスピーカーがあったのといくつかのテーブル席がフレームに囲まれているような席で音がこもりやすかったのかとてもうるさくて、夫と会話もできず、少し気分まで悪くなり、お願いして席を変えていただきました。スピーカーは全体にあるのでどこもうるささは同じと言われましたが、2つ目の窓の近くの席では音はずいぶんましでした。最近、レストランで大音響で音楽をかけているところが多く、わたしも夫も音に敏感なのかそれが苦になります。以前行ったときはそれほどうるさいとは思わなかったのですが。

スタッフの方に音量が大きすぎることをお伝えし、他にクレームがないのかとお聞きしましたが、「他の方は問題ありません」という返事。本当に?ぐるっと見回してみるとみなさん携帯を見ているか携帯に何かタイプしていて、同席の方とお話している方は見当たりませんでした、それででしょうか?わたしたちが席を移ったあとで同じ席に座ったお2人と同じく囲まれている中の席に座った別の1組もしばらく座ってから席を変わっていましたが、あれはなぜだったのでしょう。窓際に移ったのではなかったので、わたしたちと同じ理由ではないかと思ってしまいます。

On Friday, we went to “Skai” for dinner. The first table they gave us was in a area where a few tables were covered with some sort of structure except the part facing the rest of the restaurant, and a speaker seemed to be located right above us and the sound of the music was too loud. We were not able to hear each other and I even started to feel a little queasy. I don’t think we fond it so noisy the last few times we ate there.

We asked one of the staff to find a quieter table and were told all the area has the same level of the sound. We were moved to a table near the window and it was a lot better in spite of the staff telling us it was all the same. I guess because of the way the few tables were sort of covered the sound seemed to stay inside. We told the staff that we feel the sound is much too loud and asked if anyone else commented so and were told “it’s fine for everyone else”. Really? We looked around and saw most people were looking at their phone or typing something on the phone, not many people were talking to each other, maybe nobody cares because they don’t talk to each other? Having said that, we saw 2 sets of people who moved from where we were seated first then moved to a different table, I wonder why that was.

こちらは、メニューはほとんどがステーキ。最初にブラタチーズのサラダをシェアーして、夫はUSのフィレステーキ、わたしは佐賀牛のフィレステーキにしました。サイドディッシュは1つのメインにつき1つつくので、チップス(フライドポテト)とキャベツ炒め物を1つずつ選んでシェアー。

Their menu is mostly steak, not a lot of other items. First we shared a burrata cheese salad, then my husband had US fillet steak, I had Saga beef fillet steak. 1 main dish comes with 1 side dish and we chose chips (fried potato) and cabbage dish and shared them.

佐賀牛のフィレステーキはとても美味しいですが、結構脂があるのかお腹がすぐ膨れます。3分の1くらい夫に食べてもらったのですが、夫も最近は以前のように量が食べられなくなってきているので、なんとか食べ切った、という感じでした。

Saga beef fillet steak is very tender and good but it is quite rich, so I felt full quite quickly. My husband helped me with about 1/3 of it but he cannot eat as much as he used to so he was struggling to finish his as well as mine.

デザートは、エギゾチック・トライフルを1つずつオーダー。軽めのデザートでわたしは結構好きですが夫は物足らなかった様子でした。

For dessert, we had an “Exotic trifle” each. It’s quite light and I like it, but my husband didn’t find it very intestesting.

ナショナルデーのリハーサル中のようでした。

Down below we could see that they were doing some rehearsal for the National Day event coming up in a month’s time.

ワイン(100ドル)を入れて530ドル(42300円)。

It was S$530 including a bottle of wine (S$100).

食事は美味しいと思いますが、メニューの品数がステーキ以外にほとんどないのはネックですし、お値段もかなりなもの。スタッフの方の態度は大変良かったですがとにかくスロー。見ていると、あの広いレストランに対してスタッフの数が少なすぎるように思います。

The food is good but not a lot of variety on their menu and it is quite expensive. The staff were very nice but the service was extremely slow. It’s quite a large restaurant and it looked like they were very under staffed.
