There are four or five staff serving in here, which was a bit much initially as I was the only one in for a while. There is a number of hot and cold food items and they also give you a TPR style menu where you can order stuff from the kitchen.

Slightly bizarrely there is a (wo)manned bar in the J side but not in the F side, although that is covered by all the staff who get the drinks for you. There is a small 'island' with the buckets containing white wines, prosecco and champagne, which is Laurent Perrier for those who care about these things.
I could not agree more - such a pleasant lounge! great views, lovely shower with decent toiletries, the familiar laksa and btw the gin is Hendricks for those who care about these things!

I should add that the menu stresses that their raw materials come from specific farms.

I like that transparency in view of some recent revelations of fast food joints

The chicken we had wanted to try was only available from 10am. Next time!
Does the cafe serve his famous tipsy toast? I'm dying to have it again

Had a chance to use the new SilverKris Lounge at Heathrow Terminal 2B.


I put my short video clips and pictures into this video/pic compilation. Enjoy!

Thanks for the review! Did your video feature any part of the first class section?

Unfortunately not. I wasn't flying in First, so I don't think they would have let me in!

Not 100% sure it's him but if not the guy currently in the SKL F side sure looks a lot like President Tony Tan, and with the official looking people hanging around if not him it's someone who seem to be important......

How could you not recognise him with his signature swept back white hair. Met him on a flight once, he's quite friendly.

Am surprised he was in the SQ lounge, or even in the commercial/public side of the airport for that matter - like any major airport, I suppose LHR has an dedicated pavilion for officials ?
Unless he was on a private visit after official trip to France...

Wondering what's the Istana travel policy like ? fly First class only above 4 hours ?

Indeed, his official itinerary did not state London. Like many of us, he may have mixed business with pleasure.

Well, we need to be thankful that Singapore didn't invest in some lux private jet like its neighbour.

IIRC think it's FC by default for PM/President etc. since it's easier to secure a smaller cabin.
