Testimonials @ SAFRA Yishun
Hi Cecilia and Team,
On behalf of my family, i will like to thank you and your team for all the help rendered to us during my sister’s wedding (11th July 2018).
Being a event personnel myself, i will like to commend on the services and support we have received. Your staff were professional and prompt, they were very patient in assisting us with our request and even to our last min changes, the event would not have go on so smoothly without all your help.
The person i will like to highlight is the Asst. Restaurant Manager, Ken. His professionalism has indeed impressed me. Especially, when i requested to swop the position for the VIP table at the very last min, his response was to do it for me immediately and without any complains. During the dinner, he constantly kept me in the loop on the status of alcohol as well as the dishes ensuring that the interval of each dish was properly timed. Lastly, his assistance in the AV & Lighting equipment has helped us achieved what was intended.
Overall, my family and I is very happy to have done the wedding at your restaurant. We will definitely recommend to our families and friends.
I wish you all the best for the coming year and continue to impress other patrons!
Thank you once again and hope to work with your team again in near future.
Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
I just held my girls’ 1st and 3rd birthday party at Pinsi (Yishun Safra) yesterday. I am writing in to commend on the catering team at PINSI @ Yishun Safra for their great service.
The staff were very helpful. Be it extra chairs, baby chairs, cutlery for kids, AV issues, directional signs, they were positive and tried to resolve problems in their best effort.
One dish did not made it but they made replacements at the last minute and we are very happy with their service recovery. Our guests also gave great feedback on the quality of your dishes.
We look forward to doing other events with PINSI!

I am sure all those who were there will agreed with me that we will be back soon.
Dear Pin Si management (Peggy & Wayne)
It was a fantastic evening for both of us, serviced by the dedicated crew at Pin Si Restaurant! Special mention to Wayne, who was extremely attentive to us and provided top-notch service for the occasion (timing to the lyrics of the march in song was super in-sync!)! Staff was thoughtful and served warm water for the bride when she was busy with the wedding preparation.
Decoration for our solemnisation table and reception table was great! Wayne was also very helpful in the coordination of a keyboard and saxophone surprise performance done by the bride for the groom.
We are really impressed by Pin Si and they have provided a good service. We highly recommend them

The service by Pinsi team was impeccable and professional during my wedding banquet, beyond the standards of luxury hotels. The ambience, décors and settings are fantastic. All details are met, executed meticulously and perfectly, and even went extra miles to meet my requests.
All my guests enjoyed the food very much and compliments the good taste and portion! Many guests feedback to us ” This is what I called a real wedding banquet! ” and many even asked for Pinsi’s contact because they want to hold their wedding there after attending my wedding banquet.
I want to thank, especially to : Mr Oh Cheng San, Cecilia, Wayne, Xiao Cui and every crews and chefs of Pinsi.
A Big Thank You! You guys are truly amazing!

Dear Sir/ Mdm,
I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation to your wonderful in charge, Peggy and service team at Pinsi Yishun Safra. My dining experience with Pinsi has always been pleasant. Not only do your staff recognize their regular patrons, service is excellent with staff always friendly and attentive to our needs. Not forgetting the foods which has never failed our expectations.
Special thanks to Peggy and team for taking good care of us just last week where we had our family dinner there. Thank you for going the extra mile. My family had an awesome meal, great service on top of quality foods.
What’s a pleasant meal without a the service?
We wish to express our thanks for the level of service provided by your staffs for our son’s 1st birthday celebration yesterday. They are proactive and quick to replenish the clean utensils, drink etc. Without having us asking, they have also offered to play some background music and birthday songs. This is especially nice as we did not prepare them ourselves. We are impressed.
The food are also good. We received good comments from our guests. They particularly liked the cereal prawns and e-mian except for the breaded fish which they commented that it is a bit bland. Overall, my wife and I are very satisfied with the level of service and food. We will definitely consider Pinsi for our next event in the future and will recommend it to to our friends and relatives who wish to organize one.
Thank you very much.
Firstly, big thanks to all the staff who helped out during our wedding. We appreciate that the staff, especially Wayne, was so patient. We made a lot of last minute changes but they could handle it all! Also, during the wedding, we had a tiny incident but the staff on duty were quick to react. They not only helped out, but they also constantly asked if we were okay after that incident. It was indeed heartwarming. The rest of the service crew was also very efficient. They constantly refilled our guests’ drinks and changed their plates.
The only thing that is a little wasted was that the food could have been better. The pomelo in out dessert was a bit bitter, and some of the dishes were quite salty. But overall, our guests and us had a great night. So thank you so much!

Thanks for all the help rendered before the big day. You made yourself available via whatsapp and it was easy for communication. Especially when you know to-be newly weds, we don’t think of all things at one go. We always think bits and pieces here and there and by whatsapp, it made updating you with our motion and our thoughts so much easier.
And for the last minute dinner tasting, we are so thankful that you were so accomodative to our constant changing plans. Moreover, you were very receptive to the comments we had, like fork and knife for the abalone and the changing of the plates and bowls.
Also, thank you for making time 2 days before the wedding day for us to come down and make last minute preparation. We are very impressed that you were able to top up the sweets into the wedding favor boxes, making that a hit for the actual day itself.
Moreover, on the wedding day itself, thanks for going through the wedding montage with us one more time. That extra move made us found out that the video was not working well early and that we could deal with it before showcasing it out to the guests.
There were some feedback which were given by guests on that day itself. They told us that you were short-staffed and thus, some tables did not have their tables’ drinks refilled fast and efficient enough. The chicken was also slightly to the salted side a little.
But overall, Jason and I felt that the assistance and support you and your crew rendered was very heartwarming and we felt we were in good hands when we dealt with them.
Thanks once again for the assistance
Kudos to your staff and you!
I recently held my girl’s 1st year birthday party at Pin Si, Safra Yishun. As a host, nothing beats having your guest commending on the quality of food and service by the staff. For this, I have to give it to Peggy and her team.
From the first discussion, Peggy has been more than efficient and forthcoming on our plans, considerations and ideas. She tries to accommodate us to the best of her abilities. She understands our needs and is not pushy.
Needless to say, the quality of food is of a high standard. I took her recommendation on the curry chicken and jackpot, that was the guests favourite among the others. Her service crews were helpful and efficient, rendering help when needed and took initiative in their service.
A week on, the hype of the party has not died down. I am still not over how well the party and this all cannot be done without Peggy and her team.
A B-I-G Thank You, Peggy and team!!
Michelle, mother of Kayla.
My wife and I held our big event at Pin si (Yishun Sfara) on 4th Oct 2015. Planning for the event started as early as July 2014. We were referred by family friends who had held weddings at the same venue previously.
The planning phase was definitely a rough process and the constant changes did not help to relief the anxiety that me and my wife had. Firstly, problems arose from the food tasting sessions whereby parents from both sides were eagerly concerned about the quality of the food served. To be honest, the quality of food served during the food tasting was below our expectations. Probably this was due to the good comments we received from previous wedding experiences. What made it worst was the plating was even being commented by parents, requesting the first dish to be plated in a round plate instead of a rectangular one. Although it may seemed absurd, but after all, the intent was for all guest to have a pleasant experience for our big day.
Besides the issues from food, other problems kicked in as the day draws nearer. There were concerns about the projector and lightings of the restaurant not being able to produce the effect desired for the event. However, all things were solved when we tested out our final products days before the event.
Throughout the roller coaster ride of planning and changing, I would like to commend Peggy for always being available for our constant questioning. Not only that she made all efforts to accede to our requests, but also went the extra mile to constantly reminding us of the important things that we should look out for during the event. The suggestions and recommendations she made were definitely a game changer.
As we arrive at the restaurant on that day, Peggy gave unwavering support to my friends and us. Helping out in coordinating the AV setup and also ensuring that all moving parts to fit seamlessly during the event.
Of course, the dinner went on smoothly as we expected it to be. At the end of the dinner, as we send our guests off, we were glad to receive positive feedbacks that the food was great. The commends I received on the food was uncountable. I do not know what magic did the kitchen performed that day, but every dish on every single table was so good that the guest actually wanted to request for take aways. Even till today, almost a week after the wedding, my friends and colleagues would come up to me and say they missed the freshness of the fish they had on my wedding.
What I wrote was just part of the positive experiences that we had during the whole event. Of course, there were a lot of other instances that were definitely commendable. I would like to thank Peggy again, and her team of staff, from the floor to the kitchen, for making our wedding a success and definitely a memorable one.
Mr and Mrs Steven Leow
Dear Peggy & Pin Si team,
Meant to write to you all earlier, but have been flying high since the party, and haven’t come down long enough to do something as mundane as sending an email!
I can’t thank you and your team enough for everything you did to make Zachary’s party so wonderful. Absolutely everything was done to perfection and I keep hearing raves and raves from my guests. It truly was a great party he will never forget, nor will I. The food was unbelievably delicious, the service was attentive and terrific. Thank you for making the effort to top up the buffet dishes whenever necessary rather than all in one time. By doing so, the food quality is good!
Peggy you were terrific to work with, so very patient and kind to an anxious Mom with plenty of suggestions as to have the kind of party we wanted. And you succeeded. It was exactly the party I’d hoped for. It was elegant and tasteful as well as beautiful and warm. I’ve received calls all week telling me how beautiful the affair was and how great the food was.
So thank you for all that, for being absolutely true to your word about all the details and for making what I feared would be an agonizing process onto an exciting, creative, fun one. It doesn’t seem enough to say thank you. You and your team made a wonderful milestone even more special, and helped create wonderful memories for our family. A very big hats off to your professional, talented and congenial st
This is Mei Lin here, we held our Wedding Banquet at Pin Si on 28 June 15. So sorry for the delay in giving our feedback. We had gathered some feedback from our guests. They feedback that the food is delicious, and the portion was more than enough for everyone, all of them had a heavy dinner that night, hahah. Some of them even packed the leftover food home, all of our guests praise the food was nice and good. The services provided was also good, no one complain of the service and food.
Me and Chun Kit also would like to thank your team for your professional service. We were quite surprised that Pin Si upgraded our abalone grade and did not charge us extra in our final bill, Pin Si also did not charge us service charge for our Banquet. We are very pleased and happy with the overall service and food of Pin Si.
We would also like to thank Peggy, the Sales Manager for your professional service and advice that you had given us, and also for your understanding and accommodation to meet our last minute change to our wedding dates. I remember one incident, on the eve of our wedding, where we could not play our childhood montage at Pin Si, upon knowing our busy schedule, you actually offered to go all the way down to my friend’s place to pick up another copy of the DVD, to ensure that the montage can be played successfully at our Banquet, thank you Peggy for going the extra mile for us. We had a memorable and wonderful wedding banquet at Pin Si, thank you Pin Si.

Attn: Miss Peggy,
I wish to thank Peggy and her team (comprising of Cecilia and Chia Mee Kim) who served us very well on the 8.8.15 Birthday Lunch Celebration @ 12 noon.
Special thanks to Peggy who has helped me in planning the menu. All my guests praised and enjoyed all the delicious food very much.
Also, greatly appreciated the complimentary Longevity Bun, softs drinks and tea package.
Would certainly patronise your restaurant again for future family functions and celebration.
Would also recommend to my friends and colleagues.
Thank you for a most wonderful evening. My sister in law and her spouse, Jiang Tian Xiang and Zyre Loh, took your establishment for their wedding dinner as we always have had good reviews whenever we engaged you for our National Day Dinner or Chinese New Year Dinner.
We had high expectations, we trusted you and you delivered, thank you. Your operations staff AM and his team, all did admirably especially if you factor in the fact that they were handling 4 events at the same time.
What made the event special was Peggy, she made special efforts right from the very beginning, taking down our concerns and giving us assurance that she will take care of us. Peggy isn’t someone to make wild promises that she can’t deliver. Peggy works quietly and methodically, doesn’t need reminder and always deliver.
Peggy is an asset to your team, do treasure and value her or somebody will poach her from you

Hi, I am writing with regards to the service I have received at your company’s restaurant in Yishun Safra.
I made a last minute reservation for lunch on the 1st January. To my pleasant surprise, it was not only entertained, but when my guests arrived early, they were also allowed to enter the premise first instead of having to hang around at the door.
While your food is of good quality and a good bargain, it is with regards to the umbrella that I left behind that I am writing in. On that day itself, I was in a hurry and accidentally left a self retracting umbrella behind. It would have cost ~$50 to replace it at Metro. To my extreme pleasure, I was able to find it at your restaurant when I returned on the 5th to try my luck to ask about it. Furthermore, though I was a non-paying customer, your very excellent staff also offered me tissues to wipe my sweat. When I rejected it for fear that I’d be charged for it, your staff pushed those tissues into my hands and replied that they were glad to have been of assistance.
Such service standards are almost non existent in our very competitive city state anymore. Tissues are normally chargeable at a restaurant and I am not only surprised that such service still exists but also very happy to have received it. I would do my utmost to promote your restaurant among my friends and social circle and definitely would be returning.

PIN SI restaurant is definitely a good choice for holding a wedding banquet, I would strongly recommend to people. Most of my guest compliment on the food as it was delicious, I personally loved the roasted duck. The shark fin soup was awesome compared to other hotels or resturants, we could see pieces of shark fin floating on top of your soup. My banquet menu prawn, was a herbal prawn which I loved the taste of herbal soup. Lastly the dessert was pumpkin sauce with yam paste which is more healthy then normal yam paste using coconut , this a must have dish for both our family as my husband and me was a pure Teochew’s. I personally would like to thanked Peggy for her service towards me. She was very patience and helpful, she would try to helped me with all request I asked. Especially the desserts bar I requested, it turn out to be so beautiful. So much better then I expected. My wedding was memorable with the helped of all staff at PIN SI restaurant.

Don’t mentioned it
It’s our first time preparing for such an event and I must say you and all the other service staff involved on that day make it a breeze for us!
Firstly, thanks for your patience and prompt follow up for us although you are not our main coordinator initially. You are a very responsible person who took pride in your job and thus, is willing to go all way out to extend as much help as possible to customers and we truely appreciate this kind act from you.
Secondly, the service crew was fantastic. They constantly checked on the cleanliness n tidiness of the tables and buffet lines and this male indian service staff even offered to scoope me a bowl of the dessert! And I’m sure this initiative is not a norm practice which I’ll see outside.
And lastly, I would like to extend my gratitude to all staff who helped us with the setting up of the venue. Thanks for being so willing to accede to all my last min requests to rearrange the tables for my guests and to even change the main table for my cake & dessert display.
Hence, I would like to thank everyone for making this event a successful one.

I am writing this email of commendation on behalf of the bride and groom’s family on 15th July 2014 evening.
Basically, we are all very pleased with the service provided on that day, which includes the decoration of the banquet, quality of the food served and the service provided by the waiters. Especially with special mention to the services provided to the bride and groom’s family by the waitress in charge of Table no. 2.
Thank you to your team for all the support that they have given for that wedding banquet.
Nonetheless i have one suggestion to your restaurant. May I suggest that you change to a more updated version of laptop because the old laptop in your restaurant really caused quite some inconvenience to us on that evening.
Thank you, once again, and I will definitely recommend your restaurant if my friends or family members are getting married.
Have a nice day,
