This restaurant is set in the historic CHIJmes compound but unfortunately doesn't capitalise on it with views or ambience. It is a little noisy but not unbearably so.We were greeted very personably by James the manager and he was genuinely chatty and helpful.The menu choices were eclectic with food from all over Asia and every dish we ordered was authentic and delicious.The prices look small on the menu but that's because the portions are tapas sized but cut up for sharing into about 5-6 portions. Each person would need at least 2 plates depending on your appetite if you also order a side of carbs each.We had the following:BBQ ray fin much like the hawker czechar version except that their sauce was lighter and had a citrus-y zing which was very refreshing.The sambal was spicy enough for Singaporean palates but not over the top.Beef kebabs with Naan - tender smoky beef arranged on top of a tiny naan cut up like a pizza with a mild yoghurt sauce.Salted egg yolk soft shell crabs - very crispy tempura crabs with a moreish salted egg yolk sauce that I had to order more white rice to mop up.Blue spanner crab croquettes - 3 small croquettes of almost pure crab meat that reminds you of the sea, in a crispy crust and mild tomato sauce.Sichuan prawns - this is a seasonal item and consisted of 3 huge peeled prawns in a light wok-hei filled glaze, another winner which should be on the regular menu.We enjoyed our meal and with the Chope 1for1 mains, the cheapest item was removed from the bill and we spent under $100 for 3 people.

Food was average but attitude of staff was appalling. Got water with my meal and asked for a straw to be rudely told with a sarcastic voice “ we don’t do straws as we’re trying to safe the planet”. However, saving the planet doesn’t extend to when you order a Singapore Sling, which comes with a straw!

Better dropping the attitude and double standards. Won’t be back to this place!

I went there for dinner with a colleague who is vegetarian/vegan. Without a booking, they were only able to offer us a seat at the bar overlooking the kitchen. What a winner. The kitchen staff was super friendly (like all other employees too) and helped making it a wonderful evening. Food was of outstanding - their idea is that you share but you don’t have to. We’ll definitely be back!
