Ambush at Takashimaya's basement surprised me by its taste. Spaghetti with lobster crab set with corn soup was a good combination.

Traveling with a picky teenager saw us eating at Ambush in the basement of Takashima. The place is popular with the staff constantly running around trying to find a spot for their patrons to sit. Not easy when there is four of you. The food was good but not fantastic and more or less what you can expect for the... More

Many nice dishes served here, but my favorite is the chicken schnitzel! Really crispy and tender and tastes so good! 👍🏼 we also had the white wine vongole and grilled mini sausage platter before which were tasty too. Perfect place for good, affordable food and if you need to catch a quick lunch in between shopping! 🛍

Ambush @ plaza singapura has been my preferred lunch venue due to her cozy ambience, friendly staff, prompt service, value for money (weekday) for food.

Ambush is a contemporary European cafe/restaurant that serves decent food. The star dishes are the mussels and the pork knuckles. The broth that the mussels were cooked in was tasty and matched the mussels well. The pork knuckles skin was crispy and the meat was moist and tender. The sauce that came with it paired the meat well. I would... More

Slightly better than average but not very good. Reasonable food and excellent service. Food was piping hot. A good kids menu. Harvest salad was very nice, fish and chips also ok. Truffle fries good. Atmosphere is as you'd expect in a mall.

,We ordered for the following two dishes: Salmon garlic chicken with rice Smoked bratwurst Iced lemon tea The smoked bratwurst was juicy and tasty. The salmon & garlic chicken rice was average as the salmon had a slight fishy taste in it. At SGD 13 per head I think it is good value for money. The girl at the cash... More

Ordered a lamb in marinara sauce and a combo of soup with ice lemon tea. I didn't spend much time with the description of... More

Visited this Ambush outlet on a Sunday evening, not much people. This Ambush outlet is a 'Sausage & Pasta Bar', so the menu is mostly sausage and pasta dishes. Tried the Baby Scallop and Fish Roe in Cream Sauce (linguine), and Vongole in White Wine Sauce (spaghetti). Both arrived promptly. Both dishes' sauces were nice, not too thick so it... More
