Very good service, good food , good atmosphere. Staff are very attentive to your needs. The even went the extra mile to provide plates for cake
Great food and service! Been here several times and will continue to do so
enjoyed the time there, simple and good teochew fare for the family
Authentic teochew food. Must order are teochew fried Kway teow and cold crab. The herbal chicken stuffed with lotus seeds and other ingredients turned is warming and so delicious. Another winner is the salted egg crayfish. Service is great too. Very friendly.
The food is yummy and the waiting staff are relatively attentive, despite the crowd. Thumb up to Ms Sun, who gave good recommendation of their menu, in relation to the taste buds of the elderly at the table. Yes, my family and friends enjoyed the food tremendously. A letdown (weakest link) is the cashier, who seemed overwhelm by the work and not customer service oriented. Waited more than 20 mins for the bill, though I did approach the cashier personally to pay and was told to return to my table to wait for the bill...thumb down.
We've been to Fragrant Garden more than once and they never fail us each time. Great food once again except for the chye por kway teow which they forgot and had to cook it in record time.
I read very good reviews from blogs and went with high expectations of good Teochew food. Most of the tables are in the atrium of a very old mall. For 6 people we were given a table for 10 placed against a pillar. It was very hard to reach dishes and we had to stand up in order to serve ourselves. Service is basic. Things are just placed on the table with no explanation and no help with serving. The food is the most important and we were mostly disappointed. The pork jelly was fragrant and served well chilled and the best dish. It was all downhill from there. The Haechow and liver roll was ordinary like any chichar stall. Spinach in superior stock was nothing we could not do at home. Braised goose flavour of the braise was quite fragrant but the meat was dry and tough, another signature Teochew dish done badly. The very large pomfret steamed Teochew style which cost $72 was overcooked, resulting in hard and dry meat. This is quite unforgivable in a Teochew restaurant! Chaipo Kway teow underwhelmingly tasteless. we decided not to order the famous orh nee as we all the other teochew dishes had been disappointing. We went away pretty disappointed with the experience.
We particularly liked the steamed halibut which was excellent! The fried oyster omelette had huge oysters, passable. The braised pork with buns was way too salty for our family. We did not like the chye poh kway teow at all as it did not taste like how the dish should be. We did not expect to be put at the foot of the escalator. Overall, not too bad an experience. If we do not come back again, I don't think we will miss much of it except for the steamed fish and fried oyster omelette. Thanks!
Dishes were all excellently executed and we enjoyed most of them very much. In particular, the steamed Teochew fish (not the pomfret, but a large fillet of a saltwater fish) and the ornee stood out as the best dishes of the night. Unfortunately, the restaurant is located in a relatively inconvenient place to go to and we'd probably only return for special occasions once in a while. But highly recommended for great and traditional Teochew dishes!
Have been there quite a few times in the past but this time I would say to food was just ok. Being Teochews ourselves, the braised duck was rather disappointing, the meat was tough & the braised gravy wasn't as flavourful as it lacked of spices which the a real traditional braised duck should taste. I guess the better dishes were the prawn paste chicken wings, egg tofu with crab meat gravy, the chai por fried kway tiao that had that smoky flavour (wok hei). Perhaps due to the crowd & lack of manpower the food could be tat bit inconsistent like in the past. Perhaps going after the peak hours of the dinner crowd, the kitchen might do a lot better.
