“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

This is an absolute gem. The food is exceptional and the chef oversees every dish which leaves the kitchen so attention to detail is first class. We had no idea what to order so went totally with Monica's recommendations were perfect. I asked for a bit more spice with one of the dishes and the head chef knocked up a mindblowing sauce. I will be back

“If customer service (+ great food) is your thing - THIS PLACE IS A MUST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I don't usually review unless insanely amazing or horrendous but this place is fab and I will tell you why :)

Service: We have been twice, about 6 months apart and the wonderful Singaporean Indian waiter recognised us the 2nd time, remembered where we sat etc. He is fantastic at his job, so warm and hospitable both times, loves to chat but not too much, make a joke but not too much, offer recommendations, keep checking you're enjoying the food, he really makes you feel welcome. He was great both times we've visited and so was the lovely lady that also served us the 2nd time. Seriously the best service anywhere in SG in this place! (and I've been in SG 7years). Eg, 2nd visit, sat at table, I tell boyfriend to pick whatever he wants from the menu and apologise to waitress that I can't eat, absolute hellish day, I have no appetite at all. She is on my wavelength and suggests we start with some wine and makes a great recommendation - WINNER! Then she empathises with me, but tells me everyone has to eat and I should try.. she asks what my favourite food and flavours are, what they could whip up that I wouldn't be able to refuse.. When in your life has a server ever cared enough about you to ask this? (anywhere in the world - let alone SG famous for awful service..). So the bf orders loads because the food is amaze! She comes back and jokes that I'm now smiling and laughing and she's glad I'm managing to eat some.. What an absolutely lovely person, really warm and sweet.

Food: Fusion mix of Indian and Chinesey flavours.. served in small plates for sharing. Really lovely good, beautifully presented and also really good wine! Price wise it's a little on the high side but I think worth it.

Tips - We went after work on a Friday circa 7pm and it was nice and busy, atmosphere etc. We also wandered up one Sat night around 9pm and it was dead, nobody in there and very quiet so I'd avoid this time in the future, for the price, I'd prefer some atmosphere. Tip for the restaurant - check the toilets are clean! I was raised to judge a restaurant on the areas they let you see, because you don't know what they keep behind the scenes! The window ledges in the bathroom were thick with dust, bits of toilet paper on the floor, quite tired looking.. just not what I'd expect.

The only thing this place is lacking is a nice view really, so I'd recommend a drink after dinner in the gardens below. The church lit at night is beautiful and the location so pretty with fairy lights and live music, really lovely spot for a night cap!

“Nice food erratic service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

The food was interesting and tasty. The service was erratic. This could have turned into a disappointing evening as not one but two wine choices were unavailable. If particular wines are unavailable then you take them off your wine list. However we were offered complementary glasses of fizz which was acceptable. The puddings were very nice.

“My favorite restaurant in Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

This is defined my favorite restaurant in Singapore. A mix of cuisine from the best countries of the world, from India to Japan by China etc... Very unique! You must try! We have been there many times and we have never been disappointed! Try the momo dumplings, miso cod, coriander salad, prawns salad and of course as a desert the white rabbit ice cream. You will love it. The staff is very attentive to every details and make sure you have a perfect moment in their company. Just love the place!
