I bought the set lunch groupon voucher. For $14.90, you had a choice of 1 of 3 appetisers - 1 samosa, 2 pieces of bruschetta or 4 mid-joint wings, a main of either sirloin steak with fries, grilled salmon with mash potato or chicken tikka wakhanwala with rice and a slice of mango passion cake. Cali Café is located in the Park Avenue Rochester. On a weekday afternoon, it was a quaint little restaurant that could easily be passed by without people noticing it. It seems like a nice, quiet and comfortable place to sit and chill with your colleagues over a beer after a long day’s work if you happen to work in the area. We ordered the wings, bruschetta, salmon and steak. The bruschetta served consisted of 2 slices topped with diced tomato and cucumber. Nothing out of the ordinary but quite palatable. The wings were served crispy and hot, just the way fried wings should be. The salmon was served with some boiled vegetable and quite a generous serving of mashed potato. The filet of salmon was very big and thick. It was moist and nicely seasoned with the skin cooked to crispy perfection. The steak had a nice colour all around and while it could have been a little more tender, it did taste nice and juicy with the accompanying layer of fat. The mushroom sauce had pretty big visible pieces of sautéed onions and mushrooms and complemented the steak well. By the time we reached dessert, we were already quite full so we were quite glad to see that the slice of cake was just a small square piece drizzled with chocolate and strawberry sauce. The cake was probably just taken out of the freezer as the middle layer of mango passion mousse was rock hard. It tasted all right but the texture of the cake was just rock solid.

I had a set dinner meal with 4 pieces chicken wings a steak with fries and sago dessert (u may choose other options). Foods generally good portions not too small but I found a small piece of foreign material (not sure what it is looks like a wire piece) in the side salad with the steak. Unfortunately I put it in my mouth but did not swallow it but felt disgusted since not sure if it was clean and where did it come from. Kitchen can be more careful of their hygiene standard.

The location is near to MRT which took about 10-15 min to reach the restaurant. Ambiance is quite relaxing and the staff are friendly except the pricing is higher than I expected. Overall the meal does not worth the price it charged. Taste of food a bit salty which not suitable for old folk.

The place is quiet for people to meet and chat, I came to know this place because of the ladies card,I kind of think it's understaffed for a moment at the beginning but after midway it is better. Food was nice

We weren't aware that the whole indoor area was pre-booked for a party and when we arrived, we had to sit outdoors which was kind of hot. Also it would be good if the food was served faster. It took a long time like about 20-25mins for it to be served.

Very good deal with Groupon for the 3 course meal. Serving size was a lot and starter chicken wings were fantastic. I chose the salmon for main course it was huge but a bit tasteless. Overall the service were attentive but the time taken to serve the food can be improved.

The steak which we ate were nicely done and tasted great and worth the money for it. With the 1-for-1 promotion that is now on it is definitely good value for money. The staff were also helpful and friendly.

Pleasantly surprised by the quality of their steak (medium rare). Though those using groupons should be wary as there is clear discrimination(truffles fries vs normal fries) in their dishes for those using offers.

We had carbonara and spring chicken. Both were satisfactory though the sauce for the chicken wasn't quite tasty and the veggies on the side were pretty raw. Service was slow considering there wasn't much crowd. Staff can be a little more smiley? It seems like we were imposing on them by going there for lunch.

Friendly service. Food was delivered quickly. Cali wings were crisp on the outside and juicy and flavourful on the inside. Haagen daz ice cream is always nice, but portion was a bit small.

Used Groupon voucher and the 3 course meal was good value for money. Disappointed with Portobello mushroom (apetitiser) which was a miserable-looking overcooked item and a ripoff at $12. Minimum service in a cafe-styled ambience, lest inviting for a second visit...

Not great but not bad. Service and food were average, not quite worth the prices. Had the steak, which had an oddly processed texture, and the iced mocha which was too sweet. The wings were very well-seasoned, though, despite their unremarkable appearance. Ambiance is nice enough during off-peak hours.

We are not serve until we go over to the counter and request. Without asking they only provide us with the limited for Groupon voucher customer order list. Upon request after explaining than they allow us to order other food from the menu.

Food was good. The only issue was the shortage of manpower that caused a long waiting time for food to be served. Will be back again for their food.

Poor and slow service, food quality was sub-standard and order took 45 minutes even though restaurant was not crowded. When asked if he could check on the order, he just said it will be ready soon without even checking with kitchen. Non-commital, cold, and can't care less attitude by head waiters / store manager in checked shirts was most disappointing. In fact, junior waiters were more responsive and alert to customers' requests. Food wise, the potatoes that came with the lobster Thermidor was hard and cold. The rice that came with the tiger prawns was cold and dry and tasteless. First and last time there for sure!
