First visited earlier this year - then it was OK. This time - below average. Food took a while despite us being the only people in the place. Food was bland and gave the impression of being mass produced. Waitress was great - friendly and funny. I wondered if this was an off day but, looking at other recent reviews,... More

2nd time we were at the place (after a year or so). still very good. spacious, tasty, fairly quick (actually it was surprisingly quick against expectations set by previous reviewers). and yes, it's open when many other food places are dead before 6pm and you're hungry. One minor issue (or benefit) - no wi-fi.

The quality of food in this restaurant has deteriorated to absolute rock bottom. We used to love the food in this restaurant before but lately hate going there. Recently we went to this restaurant for dinner and ordered chicken and cashew nut and the chicken was stinking. We couldn't eat one bite and the staff's answer was as good as... More

I come here with family for dinner. I do not like at all because my whole family was miserable. This was making us all stressed out. Food took too long and staff not apologetic

Had lunch during short stay in Singapore. Staff is not friendly and took 30 min to take order even though it were not busy. Try some other restaurant. Food was ok ok only.

We have seen this place many times and as our first choice lunch venue had quietly shut down, we fancied "Asian" and decided to give it a try. I should mention at the outset that having lived in Bangkok for three years, we know what Thai food should be like. This is nothing like Thai food, and if I took... More

I finally got a chance to try out this tiny restaurant situated at a very strategic location within 313 Somerset. The ambience is lovely with loads of opportunities for people-watching, and there were a variety of seats and tables to choose from. The fried rice with chicken pieces was a tad oily, and could do a slight draining of the... More

Vermicelli salad was too sour so it was not good. Mango salad was good. Black pepper beef was not good. Asparagus with shrimp was ok not special.

The Tom Yam soup was hot and the Green Curry and Duck Noodle Soup were both fine and not expensive. A small bottle of beer will set you back more than a fiver! The free iced water is topped up as often as you want it.

I went down for luch at the branch in the Marina Bay Link Mall at Marina Boulevard. At lunch time, there's always a bunch of hungry office workers queueing up outside. But the service is very efficient and there's a waiter frantically running around taking orders outside while you're waiting. Try their signature Tom Yam (hot and sour seafood soup)... More

Staying in Orchard Road

Neighbourhood Profile
Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why. This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
