Great place near our office. We needed a large space for a lunch time work celebration. Had a party of 15 and this was arranged with no fuss. Great good. Although I'm not local {6years in Singapore} my local work colleagues loved the food. So did I. Great value for money.

I love the food and although it was over Chinese New Year period, service staff tried their best to attend to us promptly with very good energy. For the quality of the food and service standards, I will recommend this place.

Tried their ayam buah keluah, babi pong tay, curry fish head, chap chye, kueh pie ti, and durian pengat. Great food and service! Only disappointing dish was the kueh pie ti which was not crispy and tasty enough.

The Peranankan dishes are really good! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Thumbs up for the good service too😀 Highly recommended to those who like peranankan food.

The food was good. However, we went with 10 pax and there was 7-8 pax set in the menus of around 170++. They asked us to top up another 2 person which we did (19++ each). Came out the food was so small (size of 7-8 pax). And we only recieved 2 additional soup (and may be rice) out if the top up sets not additional quantity of food. They were nice but please do a fair set calculation.

Food was good especially the ayam buakualak. Ordered other food like satay babi, curry fish head, chup chye,otak otak,ngoh nghian,but was disappointed with the hainanese pork chop - it came as a plate of ketchup infused onion and fries more than any pork chop i can find.

Very good service as staff are attentive and friendly. Food could have been better. We like the prawn fritter and Ayam buah kaluah. But the fish head is not flavourful enough and not much meat.

Wanted to bring a colleague from out of town for Peranakan food and found this restaurant on the internet. Was not disappointed. Food was good and price reasonable for a location in the city.

Good, not crowded on a Monday evening. Good attentive service. Provided a complimentary plate of their kuehs, and we were appreciative of their efforts to ensure we had a comfortable dining experience.

The lunch set is ok for the price. Service is prompt but slightly over enthusiastic in recommending the dishes. Taste wise is ok also but not as good as the best Peranakan food tried
