They had to use a fan because the airconditioning was not at its best , so it's mildly stuffy. 2) Mango milkshake out of yogurt , so we have to order something else ... Coffee ??? Sorry no milk or was... More

Nice casual dining beside SAM. Service was good and food was generally nice. Though menu is not extensive but the overall ambience made up for it. Good for meeting with friends.

Sad to hear that they are ceasing their operations at SAM very soon. Food wise it's good and healthy, however, the steak and ribs which we had very not value for money. The steak was stringy as it had lots of veins. The ribs were not well marinated thus there's a hint of the pork smell. The pasta dishes, drinks... More

Located near Singapore Art Museum. Their creamy mushroom soup is different from other restaurants. Chicken Thigh braised in a red wine sauce is my colleague's dinner. My mother and me ate their Honey Hoisin Baby Back Pork Ribs and we loved their country side pork ribs, which were brushed on honey bbq sauce. Pork ribs are expensive these days and... More

Fairly small selection in this cafe and prices fairly reasonable for Singapore. Not much choice for vegetarians and the pasta with vegetables was quite bland and it would have been much better with some protein, such as cheese. If you just want to get a coffee and a pastry it would be fine.

Ordered two plates of braised chicken leg and what we have gotten are chicken legs that are still raw inside. Able to see the blood and see the raw meat. Made me food for thought. Need to think twice before coming back.

Food was alright but they missed my kid's order. Told them we are rushing for an appointment and she was hungry but they did not see the urgency in it. We had finished our meals and just sat there waiting for her food to come. They kept saying its coming but it didn't. This is despite the fact that they... More

Good place for casual gathering with friends, pleasant cosy atmosphere, friendly wait-staff. (Why this minimum character requirement.)
