Occasionally dubbed as Longrain express, Shortgrain comes with its own bells and whistles to serve its customers with lunch time charm. Occupying a small section adjacent to Longrain, this shop is popular amongst the local during the afternoons both for eating in and takeaway. The food offerings are of clean and high quality, and come with matching premium prices. One dish can easily go for around $12 to $15 with just a decent serving size to get you through dinnertime. I had their red pork curry rice served with roti for takeaway. It was very delicious and flavoursome with the right amount of spices and hotness to not overpower each other. The meat was soft and done just right. It was packaged in a modern environment-friendly container, which pretty much adds to the sophistication of the food presentation. With only a handful of dishes on offer, the wait times for the food are kept reasonable. The staffs are also courteous.
Had a great time here with friends, the tables are a bit low so it is hard to eat, but the ambience is clean and chic, serving modern Asian cuisine, a fusion if thai and Malaysian flavours. $4 tapioca dessert, a delicious chewy and creamy sweet treat....it's the only dessert they have so you really don't have a choice, but it is delicious!
The management is the most aggressively rude I've seen in any cafe or restaurant. I've eaten here 4 times for lunch and had a bad experience with them every time, to the point where i walk in hoping they won't be there. I don't understand why they act that way. Its with everyone, has nothing to do with the people they are serving, its just an automatic reaction. Its really stressful and I won't go anymore, despite the nice food and convenient location
I'm sorry to hear you've had the same experience - I wish it were so different!
Have been here a few times now for lunch, and unfortunately it's a bit hit or miss. Overall, the food is extremely fresh but the service is rushed and at times 'snobbish' - not a lot of smiles & I regularly feel as though I'm annoying them by ordering. The serving sizes can also be inconsistent. If you want fresh food and don't care about below average service, then you'll be happy.
