My visit at Fusionista was a disappointment. Sorry to say that. The visit at the spa was amazing. Also the restaurant looks really stylish and comfy. Well I travelled all over Asia several times. And I can assure you that the food is a disaster....No love, no Asian spices, no Asian vegetables. I had green curry and fried rice with vegetables. Both was a joke and not Asian at all (see the picture). I wish it was differently. Because we are really looking for a Thai place we can go to frequently. Sorry. I will not come back. The service was amazing though. The idea wish the bell at the table too. I told the manager about my experience. He was listening, but he didn’t seem to be interested... whatever the response of the management is: don’t talk! Change the quality of your food!!!More

My mother treated us to a spa day inside the Koi Mist room which we followed up with dinner in the restaurant. The treatments were gold and the food, atmosphere and service were nothing short of something to rave about. If you happen to only...visit the restaurant, you can still have a spa treat in the form of a neck massage while you dine. Our compliments to the chef because I don't believe that we'll soon have another culinary experience like we did at Fusionista - we are already planning our next dinner at the restaurant and will be taking everyone we know back. If you like asian food I highly recommend trying the "Taste bud tour through the East" set menu. Whatever you'll pay will be worth it but they are very affordable. Wow, thank you Fusionista!More

Reviewed 8 January 2020 via mobile

The starters were to die for ,melted in your mouth . But the main course for my friend which was the duck , was drier than a country facing drought .No flavour whatsoever even with the sauces we had . It was chewy and dry....I was spoiling my friend for her birthday and the food went from a 100-0 real quick. The waiter was a gentleman and attended to us so well . I will come again but the duck needs more attention. The spa was nice but felt rushed even for a 60 minute massage, I would not say it was bad but I would not say it was great either. Thank you.More
