Ayam buah keluak is very nice, food is good n reasonably priced.
Brought my foreign friend to eat Singapore culture; she really enjoyed it, and I loved explaining the decor and the enamel glassware to her. The food was reasonable and excellent.
My aunty and I loved it a lot; the food was very good, very nostalgic and made us miss grandma (her mom) a lot because the chap chye was done very well, and the udang assam was her favourite dish. The service staff was quite unfriendly though, she didn't really smile and was quite curt with us even though there were not a lot of people in the restaurant yet. Noise was quite bad in the restaurant because place is small and the floors are all hard so the sound bounces off the hard surfaces and makes it sound more noisy than it actually is.
Good set meals. Come with drinks. And variety to choose from.
We arrived at the restaurant at 6.25 pm (for 6.30 pm), and were seated almost immediately. There were not many diners in the restaurant at that time - perhaps only about one-third capacity. However, by the time we left (around 8.00 pm), the restaurant was more or less full, plus there was a queue of about eight to be allocated a table. So, to avoid a long wait, it would be a good idea to either make a reservation or have an early dinner. The sayur masak lemak was way too spicy for us. My overseas cousin selected the item. We do not eat much chilli and did not realise that it would be so very spicy. The other three items – beef rendang, Nyonya ngoh hiang and seafood otak – were good. I would have preferred kangkong – which is not available on the menu – to the sweet potato leaves. I wonder why kangkong – either sambal or garlic – is not available … The drinks – cold barley and cold longan and red date tea – were good. For desserts, we had chendol, buboh pulot hitam and bubor cha cha. The last could have been better. Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience.
1) Service is average. 2) Overall, food is good. In my opinion, their seafood dishes taste better than pork ones because the flavour of the sauce/gravy went better with fish & sotong. I believe this was due to the mixture of well-proportioned assam and other spices, which made the sauce/gravy delicious. Also, the cooking time was well-controlled so that the meat was within good palatable texture. (I've no idea about poultry and beef because I did not order those.) 3) The most commendable was the dessert: Chendol. Coconut flavour was rich, the gula melaka was substantial yet not too sweet, the green jelly (chendol) was chewy and thicker compared to many other places', the azuki beans was the bigger type, and there was a slight salty tinge in the aftertaste of the chendol. That salty flavour is actually traditionally authentic to Peranakan flavour. Thank you.
The menu was simple making ordering easy. Food was excellent in taste, and texture, and presentation, especially the beef rendang, and bakwan kepiting, but on the portions were relatively small. The service, despite being very busy this evening (being mother's day), was quick and the servers were efficient without the food getting cold after leaving the kitchen, as the kitchen was in full view. Our server and outlet supervisor, Cheryl V., was outstanding even when we had to verify the number of items ordered as we seemingly requested a second portion without placing an original order.
Food was really decent comparing with price and against other Peranakan restaurants. However, seems like all Peranakan restaurants serves in pretty small portion, so got to order more portion if it’s a big group. Portion serves 2 just fine. Service was slightly slower due to only one person taking order on a crowded sunday evening, wanted to re order, but the orderer was just too busy to take our orders. Place is small and cosy, thus noise level can be really high however negligible. Overall, a nice place to dine in considering food are good and served at reasonable price.
The shop was quite vacant when we arrived. We (2pax) were seated at a table of 6 as we were carrying huge bags. Customer service +1. As we were there the day before mother's day, they only had the curated menu on the table. Having probed about their regular ware, they quickly produced their menu with most reputable dishes of the peranakan culture. The rest of the story needs to be experienced. :)
My second visit in a week! I must say food is pretty good for an unassuming little eatery. Food portion is acceptable given the menu price which isn’t on the high side. It’s a good place for Family meals or eating out with friends that won’t burn through your wallet! I have added this eatery as one of my fave places to go for dining out!
