It was fun and enjoyable!! The food is awesome too!
Very delighted with the food and the service👍! The staff went extra mile to recommend fun game to us. He took time to tell hiw to play the game he recommnended and we had a very enjoyable time there.
Good Experience. Would go there again. Their staff is friendly and helped in giving advice on which games to play. The food is also good.
The games were great and full of excitement . The food was also wonderful. The drinks were really sufficient. The night was entertaining and i had never been to a cafe like that before.
The Mind Cafe is a really unique place to spend some leisure time with loved ones, doing something that not many people talk about but is really enjoyable: board games. The selection of board games they have is really huge, and surprisingly well-maintained (no missing pieces at all, boards and cards in very good condition for the games i played). They have staff there who are clearly passionate about board games and will take the time to explain to you how they are played. The food is nothing to write in a food blog about, but still decent. And reasonably priced for the portions they serve, so they fulfill their function to keep you fed and hydrated.
We feel that service could be better and policies regarding missing game pieces can be explained in more clarity to the customers. For instance, our table reflected to the waitress that many of the game pieces were missing. The first time, we were told to wait and we assumed she left the table to consult another colleague. There was no reply and in this interim, more pieces were found to be missing. We told them once more, and the same lady replied that they can only exchanged another game for us and there is nothing to be done about it. May we know if then the game was to be returned to the shelf so that the next group of customers will meet the same problem again, only to meet with an unsatisfactory answer? Are games decommissioned from the shop when pieces are missing? On our part, we assumed that this booking was made with no agreement on the period e.g. only from the booking time until 2pm or 4 hours later. As such, we assumed that as long as we paid for the hours, we can stay as long as we like. It was then with astonishment that we found that we had to leave because the place is fully booked barely 2.5 hours after we reached and the table we were seated at, had already been reserved for an 2:30pm booking. Therefore, we were charged accordingly for another 0.5 hour ad hoc charges and forced to leave. It was highly unsatisfactorily as we had not finish playing the game we wanted. More clarity should be offered in the future.
I came 13mins earlier even after placing my reservation online but the staff seems unsure of my booking. Came back at the appointed timing they told me that there are tables but there might not be enough chairs. Afterwards the staffs are kind enough to find the chairs from other groups that are playing. There is a game that we wanted to play but they do not know the game, said because maybe its not popular so none of the staffs knew it. It's not my first time playing in The Mind Cafe Funan, previous services were better, but maybe its because that day was PH so they were quite busy. Nonetheless my friends and I still enjoyed our time there.
The Mind Cafe (Funan) has a comfortable interior with a good variety of board games that you can try with family and friends. The staff are amiable and overall this is a really good hangout spot!
Rare quiet spot on a Saturday to enjoy a good game with friends. Only a few tables were occupied and we were even concerned that they wouldn't be sustainable! We bought our own boardgames so I can't comment much about the conditions of their game sets but the variety is healthy compared to Safra Tampines, which has seen closed down. We enjoyed our quiet Saturday evening there, definitely will return.
For the most part, I enjoyed the fun and lively atmosphere. A young child's persistent bawling did however spoil it somewhat. But I suppose it is the parents' place to quieten the child. Will hope to go again soon. The Scrabble set I asked for reservation at 6pm was fortunately available as there were only 2 sets there. And I also did not receive any response to my email query to reserve one of the 2 sets. I brought a set there myself in case my date and I were unable to play due to unavailability of the set.
