The food was amazing and we didn't wait long for our dishes. Ambience was great, however, we wanted to be seated on the second floor which I heard was really pretty, but the staff mentioned that it was closed as there weren't many customers that Thursday afternoon and required us to be seated on the first floor only. Oh wells.... More

The meatballs were AMAZING. The open face roast beef, was good as well but maybe the beef could be slightly warmer? Overall a wonderful experience.

Went here hoping for some authentic Swedish food. We were let down by the service as my meatballs and pasta was served shortly after ordering yet it took another 20 minutes before my wife's seasonal salad arrived. We were told the reason it took so long was to poach the quail eggs. Nobody apologized for my cold pasta nor offered... More

The food was really good and very tasty. And it was halal too. In fact we returned for the second time that night and... More

We were so surprised to find such authentic and delicious Swedish food in Singapore so close to our Hotel on Beach Road. The meals are reasonably priced and totally delicious. We are planning our trip to Sweden for next June for a family wedding and will be letting anyone stopping over in Singapore know about this exceptional place!

Located in a very touristic area of Singapore, this is a good option of a nice and beautiful place to have a brunch. Staff is nice. The menu is very attractive. We choose Halibut, lamb and meatballs of kids menu. The main dish were ok but not extraordinary, but very salty. For kids better, because usually we only can find... More

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
