The service was prompt and staff were very attentive and willing to 'bend the rules' by giving us extra cherries. Great ambience with fancy cocktails.

Was not comfortable with the seats reserved for us and we could not change them even though we were early. So it was good that they let us just leave.

Very helpful staffs on the ground! The ambiance is very cosy and the decors are on point. It brings out the old in a hipster way which would attract both the old and young crowd. The food we ordered - baby huey burger, naughty fries and wings, were delicious. The meat patty of the burger is so juicy i almost wanted to order another round. The fries, were cut to resemble like a potato chip, which is something new from the good old shoe string cut. A very refreshing way to represent fries. The wings were a little spicy for me but still yummy to the palate. Overall, a very nice place to go. I would revisit the place again to try the other yummilicious food.

I had a great experience at potato head folk last night. The ambience was good, it has a very rustic feel and the music goes well with it, the whole atmosphere was great! I ordered the huey burger, the wings and the naughty fries. The food was really good, the beef was really juicy and not overly cooked, and it's seasoned perfectly, perfect execution overall for all three dishes. I really enjoyed myself and would definitely come back with a few more friends. The only reason why I didn't give it a 6 was because the price was pretty steep, they should probably come up with some dinner set or some promotion. Overall, it was a great experience!

A fun, funky restaurant for the young at heart. We have been here twice now and loved it both times. GREAT burgers (cooked to perfection) and a wide variety of drinks at the bar. We also enjoyed fries and the cole slaw. Friendly service with a smile. The rooftop bar is atmospheric (umbrellas, lighting and a cool view) and a nice place to enjoy friends on a Friday or Saturday night. Reservations are recommended as the place can get crowded - especially after 8PM. Enjoy a drink at The Library (across the street) after dinner.

This place was perfect for a relaxing Sunday brunch! The restaurant decor was really interesting, with quirky decorations here and there - paired with the bright daylight that came in, it made for a really comforting ambience. Food itself was really nice, as I've heard many times already. I got the Burning Man and the Naughty Fries, both of which were above my expectations. This was definitely one of the better burgers I've had in Singapore so far.

Cocktail lounge is very nice and unique setting for drinks, nibbles and a meal. The cocktail menu is expansive with very creative offerings as well as well made classics. Food is simple but very good and flavorful. The seating comfort is very average and caters to people who are quite diminutive. If you are of above average height you'll be eating off your knees. Table space is also very small. I'm a repeat diner and I will definitely go back.

Whether we dine in or hang out at he bar, we are always greeted warmly at the entrance. The staff overall are great. This is a good quality hamburger and it is the perfect size. Drinks are well priced and cocktails are yummy in room 1939. Restaurant great for family, couples or simply hanging out with friends. Easy, relaxed atmosphere. Love the retro decor too.

Nice ambiance, but a few remarks: There are only hamburgers on the menu! This was a bit limited for us. We had a reservation in the room on the third floor, but it is more for drinking that for dinner. We moved to the second floor, where we had a good table. Later, when it started to rain on the roof-top (4th floor), there was only limited cover. Alo, the roof-top bar closed almost directly after they took our first order and when serving they asked if we would take a second order. A bit odd.

Love the burgers, but they were overly pricey. My medium sized burger alone (without any sides) is already $25! My friends and I ordered their happy hour cocktail. There were 3 flavours in all for selection and we ordered all 3 of them. Mine tasted like plain water, and theirs tasted just like normal soda with nothing else impressive to talk about. I swear it tasted like plain water and we didn't taste any alcohol. The only reasons why I give a rating of 4 is for the nice tasting burger and the ambience.

We had a tough time getting a parking lot in the area and worries that we'd lose our table, my son called to tell them we'll be late. We ended up being half an hour late but were pleasantly surprised they still held our table for us. We had a table reserved at 3 Buns the indoor dining area and the decor is interesting. The burgers didn't disappoint and the Naughty Fries were heavenly. We'll be back to try the other burgers! Only minus point is the portions are small

Three Buns : Burgers good - Ceelo Green burger looked amazing (super green!) and could be purchased with seaweed fries (OK). Truff burger reported as yummy. Generally, burger sides are extra ie. gotta pay for fries, slaw etc, which gets a lower rating from me. Three Buns Atmosphere is fun with toys and kiddy book images painted on the walls. Rooftop bar is intimate with a tiki/Bali feel. Cocktails are probably a better deal than bottled beer.

The fun boy three burger (with portobello mushroom) was good, juicy and nun was soft; the corny fries was absolutely yummy. Had the rich chocolate pothead for desert and it was rich, smooth, thick and melts in the mouth, great choice for the chocolate lovers. All was good except the sherbie hancock lemonade drink that was a bit diluted.

Burgers are good quality. The horseradish quail eggs are interestingly flavoured and coloured. Cocktails at Studio 1939 are serious business. Just a bit slow. On the second floor 3 buns though, the cocktails are a miss. The server got my preference mixed up and delivered a too salty to believe mojito. Overall the service could be improved. Not trained very well to get all orders right. A bit slow and absent-minded.

For burgers, we ordered Kool Herc and Krabby Patty. I enjoyed my Kool Herc as the patty was tender and moist and the burger was full of flavours. However, my friend didn't quite like her Krabby Patty, commenting that it lacked the crab taste. For sides, we ordered Truffle Cheese Fries. It's not bad but nothing surprising and definitely didn't worth the price tag.

Ambiance was fantastic! Service was great! We ordered 2 burgers - a vegetarian burger and a new burger which is not on the menu. The beef on the new burger was awesome! However, i don't really like my vegetarian burger. Corn on cob was nice! The rooftop bar was a great place to hang out too!

We had the wings and the naughty fries, which were both great. The burger (forgot the name - has some bacon in it) was also great. Had the chicken burger and their new ceelo green burger but they were both a bit disappointing.

Great good good ambience. Can get messy when eating cause you know..burgers.not exactly a first date restaurant but hey up to you! Go for it if you don't mind being sloppy (no way to be elegant eating a burger. Use your hands!)

Cute little place, multiple floors - burgers and chips are good. Drinks are nice. There is a roof top but the day I went it was raining so didn't get the chance to see it. Service can be a bit slow though.

Burger is great, promo for beer is aged stocks which they are trying to clear (check the expiry date on the label), service personnel is attentive. Downside, difficult to have conversation when restaurant is full and we weren't told we have to leave after 2hrs cos' someone else made reservations.

We were seated at Level 3, which had a cosy ambience. The only issue we had was that we were seated under the disco ball, which was distracting. I ordered the crabby burger which tastes pretty good. The patty was flavourful and the bun was soft.

Great customer service. The food was what i expected after reading reviews online. Ambience was good, even if it was a tad noisy on the second level, probably due to the cosy nature of the seats.

Hip and funky interior. Went for weekday lunch, we were there around 12.15pm and it wasn't too crowded. Ordered Baby Huey and it was fantastic! Beef patty was succulent and went very well with the Notorious T.O.M. sauce! Definitely worth visiting for burger fans!

The atmosphere, service and food was good. Take note that the rooftop bar will be crowded during dinnertime. Booking system could suggest the possibility that food can be consumed at all 3 levels.

We were there during the Diageo brunch event and the vibe was great. We really enjoyed the Burning Man burger and the burger of the month. Interesting options and fun flavour combinations available.
