Located right in the heart of the city, this Circular Road restaurant is popular among workers on their lunch break who come in for the famous lunch bowls.

food pricing is reasonable and food is delicious ! could be slightly less salty
Good food with WiFi access. Can be crowded during lunch so go early.
love the food here. they are absolutely delicious. the pricing makes it easy for the group to decide what we want! however the portion can be bigger especially for the $10 steak it was only a few pieces and quite sad when it’s so delicious
The food taste was great! The waiting time is acceptable and the staff are all friendly. They will ask you how’s the food & will want a genuine feedback. You need make reservations before you go as it will be a full house during dinner time. Will go back again for the yummy foods. Most importantly sharing of food is a must as you can have more selection. Maybe the “lunch bowls” can still available during dinner for more choices. Overall is a great dinning experience!
We thoroughly enjoyed the dishes at The Salted Plum. Especially the Haus Bacon - a fatty charsiew with lovely texture, Burnt Chilli Chicken - spicy and juicy, Lu Rou - texture of the pork belly could be a tad softer but the sauce was delicious, Chicken Hearts - fried ginger was a nice touch and the hearts were tender. Would definitely return to try the Hamachi Collar, our neighbouring table ordered that and it looked amazing. The tables are small and it can be quite noisy in the restaurant but it contributes to the cozy vibe.
Heard a lot about The Salted Plum (and FIVE TEN previously), finally got the chance to try it! There’s a good variety of dishes, and everything we ordered was delicious. Five dishes was just about right for two people (we ordered 2 × $5 plus 3 × $10 dishes).
YUMMY FOOD - The Salted Plum is value for money, even though food comes in small portions. Visit in groups to enjoy variety of dishes. free flow rice for big eaters.
Pros: The meat stuff are all tasty and we enjoyed it. The service is prompt and friendly. I personally like their choice of mando-pop too, kinda nostalgia Cons: The servicing size is really small, roughly 2x what you will get from ordering from a economic rice stall. Kinda pricey if you considered that. The veg dish is quite salty and underwhelming.
$10 per dish portion is pretty small but can share 8-9 dish if more then 4person. Food taste nice, only the veg so so. Will go again to try other dishes. Restaurant is small, so got to reserve in advance and all guest need to be there to be seated.
Had to wait awhile despite making a reservation, but overall food was great! Had many options to choose from. The drinks (honey lime, salted plum) comes in a huge flask which is difficult for two to finish, maybe there could be a smaller option for two pax.
