The ambience is great, food is good especially the chap chye, ngoc hiang and oyster omelette that suits my taste. We took a group picture after the dinner at their private room. Will definitely come again.

Lovely place, good food. Definitely a place I would recommend people to go to for authentic Peranakan food. Service crew is also excellent. Makes you feel at home instantaneously

Lovely friendly restaurant with delicious nonya food. We will definitely come back again for more. The spicy pineapple gravy fish was yummy! Beautiful surroundings too!

We enjoyed our night at true blue immensely.We were greeted ,seated and treated promptly and given an excellent friendly and humorous run down about the food and suggested choices.There was no coercion into specific dishes or drinks and with the collaboration with of our waiter our dishes were memorable and mouth watering .Starting with the pickles and prawn crackers,cleansing tea followed by a tasty king prawn curry and chicken and black nut with a delicious gravy

Plus: Delicious Peranakan-cuisine. Tastes like home-made, familiar, grandmother-cooked. I really would like to taste their dishes again. Directly next to the Peranakan museum: so you could combine both visits to a Peranakan-something. Minus: The rest of the experience is unfortunately also unlike a restaurant. The service is making an effort, but doesn't act professionally. The interior has come in the years and gives the impression of sitting amidst a flea market. The architecture itself is nice: old shophouse-style.

The food was really good although the beef rendang was slightly tough. Also, no taking away was allowed which was quite a bummer as we ordered too much that day. The food were also a lot more expensive than other Peranakan food outside and also in very small portions.

First time for this restaurant and kitchen so we tried the menu. Small portions but in total it was enough. Good taste and balance between chili and other here's. Nice place to be

Lovely classic Peranakan house, brings you back in time. Food was ok - liked the Kueh Pie Ti, ayam buah keluak, chap chye, bakwan kepiting; though can be pricey (e.g. keropok and sambal are chargeable per serving).

Restaurant was a little hard to find due to ongoing renovations around the vicinity. Otherwise restaurant was quaint and the food was good with the bill a tad on the high side.
