All restaurants empty. Tried KAMIKAZE for food. Not to recommend. Service also not good. Very loud (bad) music blasting from the speakers. This seems to be more a tourist trap. Tried the Kart drifting - which was fun. Won’t return.

We spent a few hours at the fishing ponds dipping a line. We had near instant success at the kids pond fishing with just bread. Our 4 year old caught a nice sized catfish of around 1.5kg second cast! Moving to the big pond we soon discovered that there some big fish to be had if were were good enough. Unfortunately they were been caught all around us and we only managed a sardine sized catch! We were fishing with chicken liver and although the bites were plentiful they were just bottom pickers. Tip: The bigger fish were all getting hooked on the bread! Cost: Kids fishing = $1 rod hire and $5 per fish Big pond = $12 p/h, $6 rod hire and $3 bait. Getting there: Catch the MRT to the Kathib Station. Then walk back towards the city directly under the train track on the footpath for about 800m. There is a clearly visible and well signed entrance of which u will find the prawning and fishing areas.

The usual dining options: steamboat, hotpot, tapas, etc. Friends and I went to Kamikaze (Asian style tapas). Skewers were precooked (boiled perhaps) but didn't spend long enough to finish on the grill. The shishamo was coldest and mushy so we left that behind. Their ala carte dishes were much better in taste and temperature, portions are sizeable so share with friends. Drinks are at competitive pricing, good for groups. Parking options are limited so be early or just take the trains (alight at Khatib and walk down). Worth checking it out to satisfy your curiosity.
