For starters, its location at Turf City makes it excellent for couples looking for that extra touch of exclusivity. Being the former site of the Singapore Turf Club, the area also offers a cosy, nostalgic ambience. In addition, being away from the city centre means guests can avoid inconveniences such as overcrowded car parks and congested human traffic, so they can arrive at your party on time. Plus, there's even complimentary parking.
Otherwise, for non-drivers, Turf City's daily free shuttle bus service at half-hour intervals - from Toa Payoh and Clementi bus interchanges - offers quick and hassle-free access. Shuttle services starts from 9:30am and last pick-up from Turf City at 10.45pm ensures merry-makers can linger around for several more rounds of toasting.
Of course, the biggest crowd-puller remains its new spacious 40-table capacity hall designed for weddings receptions and large-sized corporate functions. Assistant Manager Cheryl Tang says, "Having a venue designated specially for wedding receptions helps couples enjoy their celebrations better. The event becomes more private."
With Ah Yat best known for its abalone dishes, it's little wonder that food is another of the restaurant's strongest attractions. All four yummy menus are created and prepared by a team led by a Hong Kong-trained chef. Each also falls within the reasonable price range of between $568 nett and $988 nett.
As an additional bonus, the package is crammed with goodies such as use of an 80-inch projector screen for video presentation.
