In the busy street of 100 Ft Road on a drizzling Saturday night, CPK's dedicated parking space was truly a life saver. Else, a hungry toddler in the car can get a little troublesome. My then-three-year-old son's eyes lit up as soon as we stepped in. I vaguely remember him being astounded by the entryway. Interiors were undeniably eye catching.
The staff was courteous and gave us a good seating area to our choice. Even before the water was brought to our table, my son was given a colouring booklet and some crayons! I don't know how much more a child's eyes can light up!? This was definitely the focus of our visit.
We ordered our son's choices first - pasta and a green apple lemonade. The pop ordered
Spicy Chicken Supreme (twice) while I checked out one of their much-publicised thin-crust pizzas. My son actually ate what we had ordered.
That's a first. Surprise, surprise. Pasta was average. Pizza and the chicken were unique. I understand CPK is always on the experimenting spree when it comes to their pizza menu.
What I noted at this restaurant was that the staff genuinely wanted their customers to be happy. They didn't mind when my son was running all over their spacious restaurant to take a break from eating and drinking; in fact, they co-operated with a smiling face. A guy (probably the manager) came over to our table to enquire if everything was to our expectation. We nodded in the positive.
To end the dinner, my son demanded for a chocolate brownie. I'm so glad he's a chocolate lover (it's so easy for me to finish up in the rare event if he doesn't!). It was not just any chocolate brownie, believe me. It was topped with a huge dollop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and a cherry! I cannot forget my son's eyes lighting up again!
CPK is no doubt on the pricey side but for the service, food and fun rendered - it all vanishes when you see your child(ren) having a pleasant time. I reckon reserving a table in advance.
