Good food and special notes were taken care of. Highly recommended!
Great Teochew food. One of my usual haunts which doesn't disappoint.
Food was superb especially the steamed pomfret, braised pork with steam bun and yam paste. Will definitely go back.
The food is great and A great place for gatherings
Delicious food and prompt service. Never fails to disappoint our family (from young to old) who has been dining at Fragrant Garden for at least a decade. Our regular dishes that taste good consistently are the su cai (vegetarian cabbage), mixed liver roll and prawn roll, prawn paste chicken, braised duck meat, flaming pork chop and dessert of yam paste.
The food is yummy and the waiting staff are relatively attentive, despite the crowd. Thumb up to Ms Sun, who gave good recommendation of their menu, in relation to the taste buds of the elderly at the table. Yes, my family and friends enjoyed the food tremendously. A letdown (weakest link) is the cashier, who seemed overwhelm by the work and not customer service oriented. Waited more than 20 mins for the bill, though I did approach the cashier personally to pay and was told to return to my table to wait for the bill...thumb down.
We've been to Fragrant Garden more than once and they never fail us each time. Great food once again except for the chye por kway teow which they forgot and had to cook it in record time.
I read very good reviews from blogs and went with high expectations of good Teochew food. Most of the tables are in the atrium of a very old mall. For 6 people we were given a table for 10 placed against a pillar. It was very hard to reach dishes and we had to stand up in order to serve ourselves. Service is basic. Things are just placed on the table with no explanation and no help with serving. The food is the most important and we were mostly disappointed. The pork jelly was fragrant and served well chilled and the best dish. It was all downhill from there. The Haechow and liver roll was ordinary like any chichar stall. Spinach in superior stock was nothing we could not do at home. Braised goose flavour of the braise was quite fragrant but the meat was dry and tough, another signature Teochew dish done badly. The very large pomfret steamed Teochew style which cost $72 was overcooked, resulting in hard and dry meat. This is quite unforgivable in a Teochew restaurant! Chaipo Kway teow underwhelmingly tasteless. we decided not to order the famous orh nee as we all the other teochew dishes had been disappointing. We went away pretty disappointed with the experience.
We particularly liked the steamed halibut which was excellent! The fried oyster omelette had huge oysters, passable. The braised pork with buns was way too salty for our family. We did not like the chye poh kway teow at all as it did not taste like how the dish should be. We did not expect to be put at the foot of the escalator. Overall, not too bad an experience. If we do not come back again, I don't think we will miss much of it except for the steamed fish and fried oyster omelette. Thanks!
Dishes were all excellently executed and we enjoyed most of them very much. In particular, the steamed Teochew fish (not the pomfret, but a large fillet of a saltwater fish) and the ornee stood out as the best dishes of the night. Unfortunately, the restaurant is located in a relatively inconvenient place to go to and we'd probably only return for special occasions once in a while. But highly recommended for great and traditional Teochew dishes!
