Went there around 8pm and the premium bak kut teh were all sold out! Meat was tough for popularity version. But the you tiao was nice and cripsy - freshly fried. I think there are better places out there for bak kut teh. But at least this place has quite a lot of promos (from Burpple, Eatigo, etc.).

Soup is tasty as always, but can't help to feel that it was missing it's usual heat level that enhances the good peppery spiciness. Also the meat was slightly dry. But overall enjoyable! One of the staff was very helpful in helping us redeem our Klook voucher.

We ordered two bak kut teh which was served very quickly. The soup and rice were nice. Some of the meat felt a little too dry but it was pretty decent. We'll probably return again.

Peppery soup with a nice fiery punch; but too salty! Ribs are fatty and not fall-off-the-bone tender, so looks more like marketing hype at work justifying the price premium!! My wife cooks a better bkt anytime :)
