Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant : Celebrations

Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant

Last weekend we had dinner at the iconic Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant. Established in 1977, the restaurant is located on top of a grain silo. This long established restaurant is considered a landmark along Keppel road. The unique part about it was that it is one of Singapore 2 revolving restaurants ( the other one is Tong Le at Collar Quay)

When we reach the spot, the boys were a little perplexed. The carpark was filled with containers and with the construction work outside the main compound, this does not resemble a dining destination. When shown the building , they were curious how a tall building without windows ( grain silo) can house a restaurant.

The restaurant
Getting up the restaurant is as interesting as it's facade. You take a lift up, followed by an escalator and reach the summit up a flight of curved steps. The journey up may be a tad challenging for the elderly or disabled, so do take note.
The boys were surprised by the sight that greeted them. Clad with full length windows , the restaurant looks bright and inviting . The views were equally delightful. They were amazed by the ever changing landscape that greeted them at every turn of the restaurant .

The View
The best views would be the ones facing the container terminals and Sentosa. For those who are afraid of getting dizzy from all turning, the tip is not to look at the floor while you are dining.

Different Menu

There were at least 4 different set of menus presenting a la carte as well as set dishes. With so much choices, it may be daunting when it comes to ordering.
Happy birthday Grandma
Luckily this task was not given to the boys. Rather their mission for the evening is to present grandma with a bouquet of self made flowers for her birthday!
Menu 7
We decided on the set menu for 8 . Priced at a reasonable $338++ , this 8 course meal seems like a good sampler for the well known dishes at Prima.

Peanuts and Veggies
The dishes we had includes the following :
Deep Fried 4 Treasures and Fish Maw & Seafood in Thick Soup
Deep Fried 4 Treasures : Mixture of fried vegetables and mushroom. The boys actually enjoyed the deep fried vegetables!

Fish Maw & Seafood in Thick Soup : Good alternative to Shark fins Soup

Peking Duck
Authentic Barbeque Peking Duck : This is one of the signature dish. It will be served in 2 parts , one with the skin only and the other just the meat. You can choose to have the meat by itself or cooked it with rice or noodles (Additional costs)
Yummy Food
The rest of the dishes were well prepared and fresh. In terms off value, this is definately much better in terms of quality compared to our last Chinese Restaurant outing at Wah Lok
Steamed Seabass with Blended Fish Sauce
Sweet and Sour Prawn Balls on Hotplate
Braised Vegetables with Mushroom and Dried Scallops
Deep Fried Bean Curb with Prawn Roe
Souffle ball with mashed bean stuffing

Souffle ball with mashed bean stuffing : Last but not least the signature dessert. Best eaten with a dash of sugar.
Happy Birthday

The restaurant may be old, but the good food and the interesting revolving concept does keep the children occupied and contented. The Dinner ended with our traditional birthday cake cutting for Grandma.

Say Cheese!
The best part , the cake comes with accompanying piped in " Happy Birthday" by the restaurant. A nice touch to end off a pleasant evening. For a unique dining experience with old school charm, Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant is high on our list for a meal out with family.
Happy Birthday Grandma!
Last but not list,
Happy birthday Grandma!
