the food, service and ambience is good, worth a visit
Excellent food, great ambience (good music and just the right noise level).
Great food and value for money. Always a joy to dine here.
As the servers recommended, their pork tenderloin special and the volnay to go with was delicious!! Service was good yet not intrusive. Only downside was that it was kind of warm where we sat (need stronger AC). Spent approx $290 for 2, with 5ish glasses of wine, 2 appetisers, 2 mains and a dessert. Will be back. Keep it up guys!
The food at Bar A Thym is consistently fresh, inspired and tasty... The Team provides efficient and friendly service, in a cosy and easy environment. Bar A Thym is an obvious choice for a great moment to be shared with friends. Last but not least, while somewhat limited, the wine list does allow for interesting discoveries.
We had the "Menja I Calla" omakase-style dinner and we had more than enough to eat. The communal sharing plates were the stars - meltingly tender pork jowl, tasty pata negra jamón ibérico, crunchy bacalao accras with fiery nahm jihm, al dente fregola with sotong. Chef Francois makes sure his customers are happy, and corrected things personally when there was a miscommunication between the waitstaff and the kitchen about one of my friends' allergies. Whereas the cuisine is inventive, we found the desserts uninspiring, undifferentiated, and a letdown from the standard of the cuisine. A good pastry chef with a palate and sophistication to match Chef Francois' is needed here, soon. The wine list is commendable, with a good selection from the south of France, especially Languedoc-Rousillon, under S$100, although my first white wines choices (Dom Vacheron from Sancerre, Patrick Piuze from Chablis) were sold out when we were there.
It was a great culinary experience. We had the omakase course. Each dish was executed very well, especially the pork jowl. The meat was tasty and tender, much like our local cha siew. Service was also attentive. I would have given them full rating if the service staff were more familiar with the ingredients in each dish. They need a bit more training on how to explain the cooking style and type of spices and herbs used. It was quite obvious that they were just memorising the technical terms, because when we queried them further on what they meant, they were unable to explain them in lay man terms. But the quality of cooking more than make up for this minor weakness.
The ingredients used are fresh and some are seasonal. Sat at the chef counter and watched the food being cooked and served was one of a kind experience. The chefs are friendly and generous in sharing cooking tips. Small free bits and shots were served to us through the night. The desserts are tasty. The chocolate is right sweetNess. The sorbets simply amazing after a hearty meal. The macrons were sticky, chewy and spongy. Best macron eaten so far. The service crew was attentive and friendly. One of them even open the door when l about to enter the restroom.
Very tasty food, perfectly prepared and presented, relative to the pricing (lunch set menu at SGD 38), combined with some reasonably priced wines made it an extremely pleasant dining experience. Friendly and effective service, good atmosphere and convenient location: all is set to make Bar A Thym a great success.
My hubby & I enjoyed our dining experience at Bar A Thym very much. We ordered omakase with no duck and lamb. We were served fresh oyster, followed by squid, pork, prawn and beef cooked in different ways. The beef was superb. It melted in the mouth. The service was excellent with its friendly and knowledgeable staff.
