Sorry to say I thought this restaurant was awful. The drinks are very weak and the food tasted bland and terrible. Blasting air con made the room freezing cold. The service was extremely slow and the staff who were there were extremely rude and unfriendly.

I had high expectations for a Korean - Mexican diner as I love those cuisines. The food was actually more on the fast food - junk side, extremely oily and fatty. The drinks were on the expensive side (compared to similar places in this area)...More

We went there as we saw the liquid promo. But for Friday n weekends, it is an additional $10 on top of $28. We didn't know that the buffer ends at 9pm. Hence, we had to order our own alcohol after that timing. No one...More

For a start it's no longer called 'Don't Tell Mama' - this name only crops up on the inside of the menu. Called something like KK Chicken and is hard to distinguish from the dozens of other Korean restaurants along this section of Tanjong Pagar...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
