Got a great table, drinks were awesome, burgers were delish and staff very friendly! Overall a wonderful experience especially for my hubby who is a vegetarian and loved the Roots Burger! Been there before and surely going back again. Cheers, Potato Head!
nice ambience, wonderful and cheerful staff, food was good!!! definitely will head back to visit both the bar and rooftop bar for sure!!! kudos to the staff!!!
Cozy and intimate, Bar 1939 on level 3 of Potato Head is one of the most professional bars in Singapore. Perfect ambiance and decor. Lighting and music level designed by people who know bars and what patrons want. Selection of food and drinks is generous and of high quality. All executed without requiring a second mortgage to pay the bill.
Good! The experience was amazing, was able to get a seat so quickly thanks to the reservation we made with quandoo. Staff was attentive and food was good.
Went to Potato head folks last Saturday with some girlfriends. The burgers were not bad but were slightly on the pricey side. The decor for the place were interesting and I must say, Instagram friendly. There were 3 staffs on the second floor while we were there. Towards the end of the dinner, one of the staff (Filipino, I didn't get his name) came to ask and said "Are you aware that there is a table of 7 coming?". What puts me and my friends off was the way he said it. In our defence, why should we be aware that a table of 7 is coming? Bear in mind that we were not informed before he approached us. We would not have mind if this was informed to us upfront, or if it were asked in a more polite manner. We had reservations for the potato head folks rooftop bar initially. But decided to cancel the reservation and move the drinking somewhere else. What also surprised me is that when the staff from potato head folks contacted me to confirm the reservation, they were aware that I have a back to back reservation planned (Dinner at the restaurant first, then drinks at the bar after). Sadly, it seems like this was not communicate to the staff on the floor. Go to Potato Head Folks for the ambience. They serve decent food. But don't expect good service.
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.
The burgers at Potato Head Folk are best in Singapore in my opinion. Their selection of side dishes is as extensive as their selection of burgers. They do comfort food very well. Their desserts are good and the funky atmosphere makes it a great casual place to have dinner with friends. We will return!
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!
The place had a unique design. We could choose 1 of 3 areas provided, each of them has a theme of their own. We went to Studio 1939 and The Rooftop. The Rooftop was nice because well it's a rooftop bar. I specifically liked the style of Studio 1939. It has a rock music lounge vibe, they played The Replacements and such. The audio speaker was also taken seriously, it had a great quality of sound details and the volume was exactly just right. The price was also fair for that kind of quality and service
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.
Great service and ambience. To me, it's hard to find a restaurant that serves a good main course and good dessert to finish off the meal but Potato Head Folks did it. Can't wait to go back there to eat already
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.
Booking was quickly retrieved and was seated in good time. Ambiance was nice, though staff seemed shorthanded, but they were very friendly. Food wise my burger (bboy) was a tad too dry for my liking but the fun boy three with the portobello was much much better. Naughty fries was decent though I would have preferred string fries over the mini wedges they seemed to come in. Wings has a good bbq flavour though it was not crispy as advertised. Meat wasn't falling off the bone which is crucial for wings.
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.
It was a great experience at Potato Head Folk. The food was really tasty! And not only the burgers, but also the sides and desserts! The place is very cool and cosy and the service was good!
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
Burger was great. Service could have been more attentive esp as it was very quiet when we came in. I preferred another table and even though it was empty reply was 'it's not cleaned' no offer to wait 1 minute... drink order took a while, second drinks not offered. No dessert menu offered. However very cool interior and once again great burgers!
Place is too dark and cannot see the menu. The lights brighten and went dim randomly, like as if the venue lights had problem. We were offered "ice water all around", but the water never came. In most restaurants, when we have our birthday celebrations and brought our own cake, the service staff would offer to take the cake out of the box and serve it on a plate. When we asked for the cake, the service staff gave us our plastic bag with the cake inside. It is like as if we had put something in the locker and now collecting it.
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.
Amazing food and great atmosphere - a place not to be missed if burgers and cocktails are your thing! And don't forget to head up to the rooftop bar for the amazing chilled out views - but be prepared to wait as it's only a small area and gets very crowded.
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.
The wings-it is quite disappointing as we thought it would be really nice as it was recommended. And the potatoes in the Christmas set was not as appetizing, very normal. Otherwise, the burgers were awesome as well as the service! Wee leng our food server did a really great job! Big thumbs up to her!! 👍🏼
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.
I've always loved every chain under the potato head group so this one is no exception. The menu is great - Three Buns in Jakarta is my fave brunch spot so I'm glad to find it in Singapore too. A cute fun place to hang out with friends over lunch/brunch.
Nice ambience at the roof top with strong wind and scenary. Unfortunately, we only book the studio which we thought that it is part of the roof top bar. we just need top queue a short while for us to get a seat. A serene ambience out of the city.
Not only do the cafe allowed us to put the birthday cake with them (to serve after food), it was a nice touch of the waiter to decorate and serve the birthday cake to our birthday friend! Really nice ambiance for a chill out place with friends!
Made a reservation at 8pm, but reached an hour earlier, The staff were accommodating and got us a seat despite reaching much earlier. Area is nice and comfy, great for gatherings and booze. Awesome service and friendly crew! (:
First time here and i'm amazed! The burgers were excellent! Ambience was cosy but would prefer the place to be more brightly lit as the dim lights would pose a problem in taking instagram-worthy photos/wefies. Staffs were professional and attentive to our needs. Will visit again!
Awesome atmosphere, great burgers. nice place to chill out. :) Parking is a bit tight so might have to come a tad earlier. Aim for the roof top area which seems to replicate the bali mr potato head.
Service is good. Nice interior too. However, we find the food a little too salty. Ordered the Smokin' b-boy burger, Naughty Fries, and Lil' Miss Piggy. Would recommend the burger and fries but not Lil Miss Piggy. We enjoyed Hazelnut milkshake recommended by the staff.
First visit ever, and went on a Sunday night. Perhaps that's why the place was rather empty but ambience was great for a catch-up with my friends. Ordered Naughty Fries (GREAT) and the Crab Burger + Fun Boy Threes - tasty af. 10/10 would recommend.
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're in love with the cocktails... we tried a lot of them.. the atmosphere on the roof top was amazing.. chilled out.. and the burgers were juicy and delicious.. will definitely come again and this time will try the bar instead.. looks so inviting
Had vanilla milkshake and fun boy three burger! It's awesome! Great ambience too! But their music were a little too loud. Service was great, but always do need to prompt the staffs to top up water!
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 ambience, delicious burgers, the decor is very interesting, definitely will come again. There is a roof top bar as well but maybe a bit crowded so do check with the staff before heading up
The ambiance is what makes this place, 4 3 floors of unique deco, cosy and comfortable. Food was good but portion was rather big. The staff was the best part, they are so friendly and warm which makes dining there so relaxing.
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.
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!)
Studio 1939 was a cosy, intimate and beautiful place with great service and superb foods. If you are looking for a great atmosphere to chill in the evening, it's just the place for you!
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.
Had my meal on the third level. The restaurant has good burgers, limited choice of beers and a nice vibe. Be sure to check your bill, they billed me for extra drinks which I did not consume, but they did rectify the bill after I informed them about the error.
Great space, amazing food, friendly helpful staff. We did have to flag down the wait staff every time we wanted another drink or to order dessert. That's the only fault I could aew. Will be back.. Next weekend in fact!
Awesome Service at the restaurant. Food was of amazing quality as I last remembered it, will definitely be back for the Baby Huey and Naughty Fries again. Awesome drinks at happy hour too
I was late for my reservation but they were nice to call me and hold my reservations for me. Good service, good ambience and really good food. The choco milk shake was yummy!
it was kinda surprise for first visit with arty feel along the stairways. L3 gave a rustic sexy feel commented by my friends. The ambience was chill and good for wine. food very much on finger food as table was rather small. Friends commented their burgers were quite yumz.
