The food wasn't that great but it wasn't bad. It was regular Peranakan food without the wow. Like what I've read in another review, go only if you have no other options available, which was exactly what happened to me.

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.

Very good Chinese Peranakan food with prompt and friendly service staff! They even give complimentary kueh at the end of the meal! The decor gives the place an even more authentic feel!

Food was good, as expected. Was there over weekend, so waiter attention and service was also good. HSBC discount provided the added positive feeling and satisfaction. Restaurant staff has been attentive.

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

sambal kang kong, kai lan, seafood fried egg, otah, and asam fish. All the dishes tasted good except for the asam fish, worth visiting again! Great service.
