The food and service was great. The rice meals were delicious and just the right portion. I would like to go back again to this place.
Great food, love the taste of baked lobster and their spread of mocktail. Good for hanging out with friends.
Great ambience, food was amazing and drinks were too. Handmade pasta was the highlight for the night. Celebrated a birthday there and they had amazing service.
They serve very Good food at more affordable prices. Set lunch can be more varied though. Consider adding risotto and other meaty dishes for the set lunch
Went to Platypus Kitchen for lunch on a Saturday, the place was quite crowded but pleasantly not that noisy. I quite enjoy the look of the place with black wall and ceiling with a woody tone that gave a warm feeling and bright big windows that overlook the street. We ordered 2 mains, a dessert and 2 cocktails. The first main was Crab and Prawn spicy pasta (not the proper name on the menu) generous crab meats, 3 big succulent prawns furthermore the highlight was the sauce that has this intense seafood flavor to it, while the freshly made pasta would depends on personal preference for al dente. The second main was Roasted chicken with rosemary and Garlic (again not the proper name), the chicken was crispy on the outside and oh so juicy on the inside added with a strong infusion of garlic and rosemary flavor. the salad on the side was nothing to mention, but the fries that comes along with the dish is noteworthy, so flavorful. They have this on going promotion of $6 for the 1st cocktail order that we decided to give a try. We ordered Pink Sojutini which was on the sweet side and very mild on the alcohol content and also ordered Strawberry dust that has a decent rum kick and a well balance sweetness from the strawberry puree and bitterness from the cacao powder. The only item that we considered a miss that day was the dessert. We ordered the Chocolate lava cake, we did not appreciate the texture of the outer cake and also a rather bland scoop of Vanilla ice cream, although the intensity of the chocolate was alright. Overall, it was a wonderful lunch and we would be more than happy to frequent the restaurant. Although we will be doing that on a dinner service since their full menu is only available after 5pm.
Great ambience, super amazing food! We ordered the value-for-money set dinner for 2 pax (times 2) as well as another main dish. The ribeye was just fantastic. The beef bowl was also very good! Beef is a very safe choice in this restaurant. We also had the uni risotto which was not bad but the taste gets boring after a while. The carbonara is also pretty good. The salmon we had it medium rare, & tasted great, not too mushy. Lastly we had the desserts -- matcha lava, chocolate lava, as well as the salted caramel cheesecake. Highly recommend all of them, especially the cheese cake. It looks like a work of art! The only gripe I have about this place is the waiting time. We reached the place on time (reserved at 7.15pm). But we were only served at roughly 8.10pm (the appetisers, which were amazing as well - truffle mushroom soup and chili crab mantou). The food is definitely worth the wait and I would think on a Friday night it would be more crowded. Definitely will go back again!
Celebrated gf's lunch birthday at Platypus Kitchen on a Friday afternoon and the food and drinks were value for money. The sous-vide half chicken's skin was crispy and the meat was tender. I was spoiled for choices; they have so many housemade sauces and signature dishes but I'm glad that I went with honey truffle soy and garlic permesan mushrooms. Many thanks to the waitress for checking whether we want it to be thoroughly cook as we would have been turned off should there be blood on the bones. The sparkling mint lemonade was lovely to have after being out on a sunny Friday. The waitress serving our table was attentive with our orders and served the dish and drinks to the correct pax without needing to ask again who ordered them. A general suggestion would be to have the tables for two to be further apart from each other as they were too close side by side. As interesting the conversations were, I'm not particularly interested in the topics discussed by the folks on my left and to my right.
Booked Platypus Kitchen to celebrate a friend's birthday and it was great! The food was awesome - I ordered the pork bowl and loved it. My friends loved the food there as well. We also ordered a chocolate lava cake to share and it was the perfect way to end our night. My only issue with the place (why I didn't give it 6 stars) was that the wait staff are quite inattentive. Despite our best efforts at getting their attention for our desserts, to refill water or even for the bill, they only noticed that we were calling for them about 10 minutes later. They also took a pretty long while to come with our bill. Guess they couldn't handle the Friday night crowd but other than the service, we all really enjoyed the food there and would recommend it :)
My mum, dad, and I headed there for dinner on a Sunday. My mum had the duck confit, my dad ordered the sous-vide steak, and I chose the dinner set menu so we could all share the appetizer & dessert. I chose the pumpkin soup, the ribeye & truffle bowl, and the pannacotta. We all agreed the pumpkin soup was yum, while the mains could've fared a bit better. My mum's duck confit was salty (the meat and the gravy provided), and the duck was a tad overcooked. My truffle bowl was good, but again, the sauce was salty. My dad's steak was good. The fries were great! Last but not least, the pannacotta. The berry sauce was way sour, but the pannacotta itself was smooth. My dad found it a bit sweet though.
I ordered the lobster roll, truffle carbonara and crustacean bowl. Everything was absolutely amazing and as expected as I've read a lot of good reviews about it. For the seafood dishes, there weren't any unpleasant seafood taste. That's a bonus. The carbonara was exquisite w the hint of truffle. Nothing like I've tried before. There was nothing that I didn't like about the food or the ambience. Even the cocktail (soju secret agent) was really good. Total spent was SGD93 and I definitely would come back here again!
