Everybody has to do the lobster thermidor or seafood thermidor at least once, it's sort of the classic go-to, but after a few trips I'm changing it up to whatever takes my fancy. On my most recent Sydney-Singapore trip I opted for the Roast Duck Rice (always hard for me to resist duck!) and the return leg was 'Singaporean Style' Chicken and Lamb Satay. Have also had the salmon which Sid suggested, think it's the one served with wild rice, it's delicious.

+1 for the roast duck (itek siow) it's always nicely cooked, full of flavour and a generous serving. The lobster is nice to try for novelty value but a small portion (half tail vs. full tail in first class) - save your lobster experience for the ground.

I have to say that I found the Lobster Thermidor quite a disappointment being stringy and dry. I had the Cauliflower Coconut Curry in the Private Room beforehand and it was simply fantastic, one of the best Indian meals I have ever tasted. Nest time would have 2 or 3 servings of this and forgo the flight meal.

I love the chicken rice. It’s the dish that the staff on board hope I don’t want :-)

I'm one of the rare people who is very meh about the Lobster Thermidor. It is alright, I just find it a bit bland for my tastebuds. Indian Style Lamb Shank curry is pretty good, actually any of the curries really because they reheat really well. Peranakan Hokkein Mee Soup on occasion. Always Dim Sum for brekkie.

Straights Chicken Curry ex Singapore is amazing and I have it every time I fly. I agree that the lamb shank curry ex OZ is also very good

I find most of their dishes are of a good to very good standard. The exception is the beef dishes and in particular any steak. These are very over done and all taste was removed half an hour before they finished cooking. Stick with the traditional Singaporean dishes and you rarely find an issue

I just had the nut-crusted veal fillet the other day and it was superb!

Chicken rice ex-SIN and HKG is always good, and not too heavy.
