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.
Tried their ala carte buffet. Great, friendly service n nice peranakan food. Their sambal used in their sambal dishes are really nice. Good value too. Highly recommended!
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.
