Staff are courteous and helpful. Saw quite a number of caucasians having their beer and food here. For a coffee shop to be able to attract caucasians to like their food must have some culinary standard. My daughter like their marmite chicken while I like...d their fried sliced snakefish with onion and ginger. The tofu minced meat colorful and appetising. Their vegetables were also very well cooked. The chef knows the art of culinary presentation with the right blending of colors and food.More

Excellent and great selection of food. So good went back to it a second time during a short visit. Lots of choice on the menu and everything we tried was great. The fish skins were amazing!

The food was really good although I would prefer it to be a bit less salty. The restaurant has a greatly lit and cozy atmosphere in their garden. Would definitely go again. Highly recommend.

Chili crab was fresh. Get the freshly made mantou as well. The claypot tofu and coffee ribs are a must try too. Book the earliest slot possible as parking is challenging after 6pm.

Craving for some pork chops with coffee, KEK is perhaps the most delicious dish. Bite size pork coated with a special sweet coffee tasting sauce. It was juicy and has a wonderful coffee flavour. Their Spinach with crispy ikan bilis tasted great. Their Choy Hiang...tofu was also great. We had a sharing platter which I find it little let down because I have tasted better ones! Their black pepper crab was tasty albeit the sauce was more runny then dry. Service was quick and friendly. For beverages we had their homemade barley water and fresh calamansi juice. Pricing was reasonable.More

Great Tzi char restaurant. From their coffee pork ribs, poached spinach with 3 eggs, roast chicken, appetiser sampler and dried horfun were good tasting. Still many dishes yet to try from their Chili crabs, to tofu and deer meat. Environment is in an old industrial...estate in Redhill. Not a great environment but sitting is outdoors, although they have a few tables with air conditioning. Other known food such as Soon Quah is in the neighbourhood. Price is reasonable and mid range.More

My friend took me & another friend visiting Kee seafood restaurant for Saturday dinner. It was our 1st visit as they have craving for crab. The restaurant was packed when we visited ~8pm+ but we were lucky only waited 15 mins for a table. We...have ordered: : Salted Egg Crab : Tofu dish with mince meat : Fried Rice : Chinese Spinach with 3 types of egg (chicken egg, duck egg & century egg). The lady server was friendly and has good food knowledge. Due to my vegetarian practice, the lady offered to get the chef to customize the fried rice to vegetarian version & also separated the tofu dish with meat on the side. I was grateful for her gesture & allowing me to enjoy the dishes. My friends found the crab not as fresh as expected as the flesh was hard to remove from the shelf. The fried rice was excellent cooked with high heat (chinese saying of "wok hey") but we have not overly enjoyed the chinese spinach soup with eggs as there was too much starch & resulting the gravy/soup too sticky. We would like to visit again to try out their signature friend hor fun with egg (fried flat rice noodles) as it seems to be popular among other diners. If you want to try authentic chinese food, it is a place to check it out Regards ML Leong SIngaporeMore

Simply over rated. The dishes are either too oily or too salty. Mingzhou rolls have a undelectable combination of English ham, probably prawn and egg packed into a fried roll. The taste outcome is poor. The moonlight horfun is far too drown in its own...sorrow of oil. While the liver in the claypot has the right texture, it is mired in an OPEC cartel of gooish liquid and saline. Consolation: prompt and friendly service.More

Booked the earlier slot of 5.30pm for dinner as parking is challenging during peak mealtimes. By the time we finished the meal at 6 plus, the carpark looked crowded! The salted egg crab with the mantou to soak the sauce in, the coffee pork ribs...are a must try. The hot plate vegetables balance the other dishes. I appreciate the waitress' instruction of keeping the mask on until the food comes and a bag to store your mask 😷. Sit outdoors for more ventilation. Price-wise, it does seem more value for money than going to an air-conditioned restaurant selling similar dishes.More

The same restaurant has also branched out to burgers as well using Zi Char dishes incorporated into burger. Bought the salted egg York pork burger and it is super delicious! It comes with fries and a drink as well. Must try when you are here.

Sorry, couldn't remember the actual price but I know it's fairer than most similar outlets in Singapore.
