The restaurant Coq & Balls is dedicated to a brave rooster, which escaped the local authorities and teased them afterwards by bravely traveling through the district. What do we learn from that story? Such behavior is rewarded with fame in the Kim Tian Road. Here, visitors can prove their own cockiness and enjoy a tasty meal along the way. Burgers, crispy chickens and prawns are served with a huge variety of cocktails, beers and non-alcoholic drinks
According to an urban legend a sole and proud rooster used to cross the streets in Bo Bo Tan
Gardens in Singapore after he survived not only a bird flu but also the extermination of his sick kind,
undertook by the paranoid authorities. Afterwards he showed his proud by roaming the district and
teasing its former hunters. In honor of the local legend the restaurant Coq & Balls commemorates
the behavior of the proud rooster. Here visitors can show their own balls by trying one of the various
cocktails like the Sudden Death or other special mixtures exclusively served at the Coq & Balls.
If hunger strikes the guests of the Coq & Balls they do not have to leave the bar. A short bite between drinks will be fulfilled by Tortilla Chips, Chicken Wings or Quesadillas with mushrooms. The restaurant in Singapore’s Kai Fook Mansion also serves main dishes for a big hunger. Remember the proud rooster eating Burgers, Fish & Chips or a classic Carbonara.
Nice and cosy place with good food and drinks. The service is impeccable
What a gem of a restaurant! We loved the service and quality of food.
Nice chill place to hang out, very cozy, food's good, drink's good what more do you need.
I have went there several times, the atmosphere is always cosy and the staffs are attentive. It is a great place to chill out with your friends.
Well, went with an anticipation but was disappointed on a few grounds. 1st, selection of food were limited, must on the menu were not available, and the reason given was that they were changing their menu from the next day... No dessert were available. 2nd, the waiter did not take initiative to 'advise' with our order. We ordered a truffle fries and a Luncheon Meat Fries. It turned out that the Luncheon Meat fries was actually Luncheon Meat & Fries!!!!! So we ended up with 2 FULL baskets of Fries!!! I suspect it was either they RAN OUT of fries and not being honest about it or Menu was terribly printed! Terrible. 3rd, only 1 type of House Red left!!!! For a bistro? Only ONE type of Red? I asked for other Options since we are ordering a bottle... But waiter SHUT us off and again claimed changed of menu as excuse! I asked for the new menu wine options to be made available since it is only 2 hours from the 'next day' but were rejected again. Anyway, very inflexible and as a customer, felt rejected so many times. Disappointing in competitive times like this . Honestly I have many options if the restaurant is not interested in holding me back as a customer. Me and my friends (5of us) probably won't go back again.
I was there for lunch on a Saturday. Food was good but the service needs some serious improvement. The two young ladies there were so looking so bored and sulked throughout the entire time my party was there. They did not open their mouth, no friendly greeting, no 'thank you' absolutely nothing. One was so busy looking at her phone, she did not even realize a walk-in customer was waiting at the entrance. It seems that the evening service crew is better from what I have read, so maybe I'll drop by in the evening to check it out. They also served the main course before the starters/light bites which we felt was a bit weird. Still the food was good, and that was the saving grace.
Service could be better, it was quite difficult to get the attention of the staff. We ordered 1 main and 5 bar bites. Great place for draught and craft beers. Their happy hour is from 4-8pm (Mon-Fri). Tangy tiger prawn pasta: Tasted bland Silver fish: Good, very crispy Beef slider: Tasted good but was a lil dry Luncheon meat fries: Forget about it. The luncheon meat was cut into too big a chunk, it was not crispy at all and it came in a basket with lots of criss cut fries. Mojo Chicken: Not bad
The place is spacious and staffs are friendly too. I have tried the truffle fries, mini wagyu beef burger, sausage platter and sauteed garlic prawn linguine. All are worth trying except that truffle fries need more truffle oil i think coz it taste almost like normal fries. Best if they could serve sauce mixed with truffle oil too (like the one at Switch) haha!
Celebrated a friend's birthday there and we all had a decent time. Service was great! We only had drinks and fries so can't comment too much about food but what we had I liked (: it was really warm yesterday night though, the open concept might not be the best.
Nice ambience and good beer promo on weekends. Would recommend friends as a place to hang out and chill. Location is amongst quiet area hence not very packed with people which is preferred.
