Fast and friendly service. Served fast so that we had ample time to enjoy the food and go for the concert. Helpful too in suggestions. Food was awesome. My favourite is the otah and the lemongrass drink. Kudos!
A very nice Peranakan restaurant with very beautiful deco and good food! Most importantly food was served fast and very good service which lacked in most restaurants nowadays for a Saturday dinner🤗
High quality food! Staff are friendly and helpful, and reservation is smooth and easy. We celebrated my mum's birthday with a dinner for 8 and it was a very good experience.
Very good ambiance. The Ayam buah keluak was the kick! Didn’t expect such good food t h o. The coffee was robust and had g o o d k i c k.
Food is slightly above average with a few exceptions. The Ayam Buah Keluak, Cap Chye, Otah and Sayur Lodeh were great. However, the shells used in Kuih Pie Tee did not taste fresh and was a big let down. The Dry Laksa was forgettable as well. The problem with the place is its service. The lady waitress took 15 - 20 mins to inform us that a dish we ordered was unavailable. Also, when I walked over to get the attention of the wait staff, I saw the same server putting her nose to a cut watermelon. The other wait staff had no initiative as well. We requested the menu after eating our dinner to look their desserts but got the main menu instead. I was vague but any staff with initiative will know that we were done with dinner and looked to order desserts. We spent around $210 for 8 pax. So so food and bad service. Will not visit again.
Slightly pricey but the food was great! It can get a little noisy so not so great for a sit-down get together dinner, more like a quick dinner and that’s it. They don’t have parking in the building, so have to drive to the next building.
Most importantly the food was good and I felt rather on point. The seasonings were a big step away from the usual Chinese seasonings of soy/oyster sauce with salt. I was especially impressed by their appetizers which were all tasteful and visit-worthy bites.
Food is good but price is on the higher side especially if you order ala carte, despite the 15% on some credit cards. They used to have an ala carte buffet (bring that back!) Crowded with tourists in the afternoon
Quite a good experience dining at this restaurant. Felt cosy in the peranakan-meets-minimalist decor even though the restaurant is quite big. Not crowded on a Sunday evening. Food was not bad, some dishes better than others.
Overall the food was alright but the service might need improvement. Not the best service I had come across with. Food was served fast but maybe we were there quite late and we felt that they were rushing us off for their own dinner.
