A group of us (5) visited Enjoy Xia on a Tuesday evening in August. Although the restaurant is located on the ground floor of a main street facing building we had to enter a "lobby" to find the entrance. I find the flow a bit...odd. On the day of our visit we felt like entering a renovation site before stepping into the restaurant. Enjoy Xia looks like a "modernized" coffee shop in an attempt to retain some old school memories with its decor and nostalgic looking mug. We ordered a few dishes to share, which included it's signature fried Hokkien Mee, BBQ pork cheek, fried cabbage, sambal stingray, fried mantou and Chilli prawns. We were a little disappointed with the fried Hokkien Mee, having quite high expectations of a perfect dish. It was too wet for my liking. My favourite among all the dishes was the BBQ pork cheek. The meat was tender with a little sweetness, perfectly grilled. The restaurant was reasonably filled on a Tuesday. Staff are friendly. Overall we had an enjoyable meal.More

Nice cozy place with a nostalgic feel and food’s not bad. Staff are polite but service is at the bare minimum. Oh, if you’re planning to celebrate a birthday there, please bring your own disposable plates. Staff simply left the cake on the table with...no side plates/cutlery provided. When we asked for them, we were told “we don’t have any small plates”. 🤷🏻‍♀️More

This was my 3 visits to the restaurant if I were to include a takeaway trip too. The place is small and cosy. Food wise, we ordered 3 dishes to share. The fish Maw soup, Crispy Hor Fun & Prawn Paste wings (6 mid wings)....The speed of serving was kind of slow, its not only to us, but the other 2 tables of 10 & 6 pax were worst. If the fish maw soup can be less salty, that can be great. Portion of the food was just nice for 2 pax sharing. Staffs were attentive & helpful. Visited the place using Klook promotion, Value of $60 for $54.More

The restaurant said the chef put Thai taste into the food. As a Thai, at first I doubted what is such Thai taste, but after the food come, I can confirm that it does really taste authentic Thai. Aroi Mak! (Very Delicious!) Price is, however,...on the high side, but it should be expect under this economic climate. Overall still a very satisfied meal.More

Chanced upon this place by chance. It’s a small restaurant inside a retro hotel (Kam Leng hotel), with a retro ambiencec menu and cutlery (except the utensils). Food choices are limited but superb in quality!! We loved the XO fish soup, prawn cakes (that sauce...is to die for!), seafood fried rice (generous with seafood!), yam paste. Almond desser had some egg white inside which is nice, but we felt the texture wasn’t grainy enough - in other words too “diluted”. Took many photos here haha. Need to make a reservation as tables are few (due to space constraint), and they only allow you to sit for max 1.5 hours.More
