Food was good, overall experience is good. Just that the ventilation shld improve, my hair was oily after the visit. We ordered laksa pasta- seafood was fresh and the pasta is ale denta. The garlic wings a bit too sweet- probably becos of honey. I ordered the waffle too, not too bad, not fluffy enough, it will be good if softer..

Bistro is a little small but does have decent selection of food choices. We had the Aglio Olio with Smoked Duck, Fish & Chips and the Garlicky Honey Paprika Wings. There's only 3 pieces of smoked duck in the Aglio Olio, feels that it's a little stingy. The linguine is done al dente and the level of spiciness is good for me (something on the spicier side). The Garlicky Honey Paprika Wings is of good portion but I find the batter a little too thick and it becomes hard when it becomes cold. Sauce is good thou. Fish & Chips is good, 2 rather big pieces with a layer of fries with paprika. We had waffle with 2 scopes of ice cream, the ice cream selection is consider good for a small bistro. We wanted to try their signature purple sweet potato waffle but it is out of stock so we ended up ordering the Red & Blue Velvet instead. It has this slightly crispy outer and a dense bread-like texture as a whole and sandwiched between the waffle quarters are melted marshmallows. There is no distinct taste difference between the 2 coloured waffle thou the lady did mentioned about the flavour (which I didn't register). Overall IT is still consider good.

Been coming to The Workbench since they opened and the food never fails to be yummy. Brought a new group of friends this time and they loved the food too. We like it that the place is really cosy and service is fast and good too. Just that the air con is quite strong and it can get quite cold. It can also get quite noisy. But otherwise, we highly recommend this place for their pasta and their salted egg food items! :)

Very disappointing. It indeed made a memorable night for me and my loved one for our special night, but all of those were upsetting. The whole area was stuffed with non-ventilated air, fumes of cooking, food and unavoidable sweaty smell. I approached the staff, and they claim the air-con was broken down. It killed all my appetite, and looking at my partner who was keep on sweating and even turn on his portable fan to get some least air was really pissing me off. I suggested to change my table to the outdoor's after a customer left, and the fan which was operating above my head was not moving. I saw the staff who failed to turn on the air-con for me searching in the power source box for a remote control and seems failed to turn on the fan. With that helpless to just move out from that environment, I couldn't be even bothered to carry my plates and glasses to the table outside when I heard one of the girls shouting in Chinese to her colleague, "THE FAN BROKEN DOWN ALREADY, WHY? SHE GOT ASK TO OPEN MERH??". Your kind staffs cleaned the table only at the moment I mentioned to change my table. The ragged table cleaning cloth was then left on my eating table, throughout my dinner. Somebody did collect the plates from my table in the middle, but the cloth was still there. Up to till something maybe, inspire one of your girls to take it away from my table, then I don't need to tolerate the smells of the cloth while talking to my partner. The food was something that I didn't even want to mention. We put down our forks after eating 1/2 of our portions each, where the fish and chips that we ordered was barely cooked. Judging at your very failing service, I was so upset that I didn't even care to bring this up to the staff. Thanks to one of your staff who just have a HI-BYE sort of chatting with her friend or just a passer-by, I was INFORMED quite in a purpose way that your good restaurant who supposed to be a cosy casual dining place is not even forking out an amount of SGD3000.00 to fix an air-con compressor of yours, and therefore "CUSTOMERS COMPLAINED" at quite a volume of her voice in front of my table. I was deeply impressed by you guys to fail your customers for that amount of money for amendments, to put your customers' comfort at the lowest priority. My first and my last visit. Very disappointing.

Very interesting Asian twist to pasta & burger dishes. Tried the salted egg pasta, which was pleasantly good, and garlic pasta with dark sauce tasted almost like our local char kway teow in a less oily version. Bobo waffle with light battered fried chicken really nice too. Good selection of craft beers in fruity options. Smores waffles in Halloween colours pretty good too. Food served really fast and friendly efficient service. Highly recommended.

Ordered the carbonara which was decent, as well as the salted egg pasta which came with a huge chicken cutlet and it was delicious! Had the sweet potato waffles as well, which was good, but unfortunately did not have a strong sweet potato taste, will stick to the normal waffles next time! But the ice cream was delicious as well :) Overall a good experience, will definitely return! :)

The place is nice and the food is not bad. Love the garlic fries. Salted egg pasta is nice but too much of it will make you sick of it fast. Coffee is pretty good. The waffles look good but didn't had an opportunity to try it as the fries and pasta is enough to finish you on the spot.
