had 11pax family dinner with brother, sil & family, and sis & bil at fragrant garden this evening on 8.1.2017. ^^

very enjoyable & cost S$240 for 9pax.

this evening we came at 6pm on a sunday. this a good timing. traffic is horrendous on weekdays. & 6pm is perfect! there were already few tables but basically, everything went smoothly. in fact the food was served just too fast! we were done like in 50mins!
