Overall a great experience at the airport - for the variety of food available (for a morning flight), and the fuss-free experience I had generally. Arrived and departed on an international flight on a weekday.
There were many food options available for breakfast, after clearing immigration (ie while waiting for your flight). Some of them are situated next to each other, while some are situated closer to the boarding gates (the latter is a great idea in my opinion).
Suspect that many shops closed during the pandemic lull period, as there were many placeholder barricades at where shops should operate.
Free WiFi was not available at the bigger cafe dining areas (only those belonging to the lounges were seen). But I did see stickers saying free WiFi was provided at the seating areas near the boarding gates.
At the departure gate, the initial bits involved using digital gates to check that we had (valid) boarding passes was great (in my opinion). Arrived at 7am, and did not have to wait for immigration at all (the counters were empty). Security checks were a breeze too.
The cafes available within the departure area are not found online (from what I searched) - could not find them on Google Maps, nor on the airport’s website.
The immigration queues during arrival were much longer, and took way more time to get pass. Also, many, many pretty aggressive taxi tours were seen at the arrival pick-up area - which made the experience somewhat unpleasant.
