The food was great but the service was terrible. But as a matter of fact, the old employees were great. Our orders was wrong and we asked several times for soups refill. Apparently, this first young guy went to take his apron and walked to...More

The bowl of BKT is very little and the ribs has nothing special to it. Soup is slightly too peppery.

Song Fa Bak Kut Teh used to be a lot better before the busloads of Chinese tourists came in. Their soups are heavily laden with MSG and salt / pepper, quality of food has dropped tremendously since a few years back. This is what you...More

The smoked duck was amazing! Steamed tofu with minced meat was equally good. Fast service. Nice ambience.

As this is one of the most popular restaurants serving Bak Kut Teh, it can totally be expected that you need to wait for a seat for at least 15 minutes during dinner time. I like that they have choices of original ribs, premium ribs,...More

Established since 1969, Song Fa Bak Kut Teh has grown to become a time-honoured and prominent name on the local food scene. High quality pork ribs are carefully simmered with garlic and pepper to yield the trademark clear and peppery soup, popularly paired with braised dishes and Kung Fu tea. It is at Song Fa, where one can relive the heritage of good old Bak Kut Teh in its truest sense.
