The appeal of the Seamstress menu is obvious. The highly skilled chefs present dishes that have classical, tried and true flavour combinations. There is nothing strange or odd about what you receive on your plate. The flavours are well-balanced and the proteins are cooked to perfection – our duck was perfectly pink, our pork had a spectacular layer of crackling and our soft shell crab was crisp on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. There is ample seasoning all round and the desserts are pleasant.
The Seamstress menu offerings appear to err on the side of caution but they certainly do a splendid job of it. Perhaps a little more risk would take this restaurant to a whole different level but as is, J and I were satisfied customers that will certainly be back for more consistently delicious delights.
