“Overrated and not outstanding”
Review of Platform 1094

Platform 1094
Ranked #1,393 of 11,191 Restaurants in Singapore
Price range: US$12 - US$25
Description: Platform 1094 is unique in the ever-saturated F&B industry in Singapore with its Wizardry theme, which follows through from its decor and ambience to its food and beverages. From the moment one steps foot into the restaurant, one can’t help but fall in love with the coziness and warmth the brick walls and wood-panelled ceilings exude. Of course, it doesn’t just stop there. The wizardry theme is evident right down to the choice of chandelier lights fixtures, the long wooden table that takes centerpiece in the restaurant, as well as the chairs with its mystical prints on it. Patrons (or Instagrammers) can take the opportunity to snap as many pictures as they want with the variety of props, including witch’s hats and wands, provided free of charge. In all, the shop literally shouts “ABRACADABRA!” Wizards and witches wannabes, this is your go-to place and most definitely worth the travel to Boon Keng to satisfy your deepest wizardly desires. This isn’t your average, run-off-the-mill cafe or restaurant, but one that would transport you out of this world and into that fantasy that you so often dream of. Have a wickedly fun time!

Blog reviews online make this place look better than it actually is. The food and drinks are average, including the signature flaming potion which tastes very ordinary for a $15 cocktail. The flames are weak and not spectacular in reality. Decor and theme is nice but not exactly Harry Potter so hardcore fans, do not expected to be impressed. it's more of 'inspired' like your knock-off inspired luxury bags.

I was unable to get a reservation for the time I was in Singapore. (Recommend having one and book months in advance...) I was really lucky that I was able to tag along with a really lovely Norwegian family who had a reservation, as they were really busy and had no room for one.

I of course got the Goblet Of Fire Drink - totally recommended!
The food was well presented and tasted good!

The atmosphere & location is what lets the place down however. Its located at the top end of "Little India" so out of the tourist area of Singapore. As a huge Harry Potter fan, I felt let down by the atmosphere. The music was just current US/UK charts, rather than music featured in the films. It lacked in character, charm and magic that you'd expect for something like this. It was almost a "normal" setting with magical foods and drinks.

The staff where nice and a food was good. It was also fairly reasonably price considering the novelty of it. I know I rate harshly, but I really do think more work could be done on the atmosphere. I know the family I was with also felt the same and said they where disappointed with the background music and lack of character.

I would still recommend any Harry Potter fan to try the Goblet Of Fire. Its like nothing I have tasted, seen or experienced before!

I looked for this place due to the hype. Most of the hypes I went before were really cringeworthy, but Platform 1094 can deliver what is expected from them. Great concept, interesting cocktails, nice food, great staff and awesome coffees. Even without those wizard hats, I would still come back for the food and service. But I do hope that they can do an all out Harry Potter themed cafe, with butterbeers and wizard latte art designs.

We went during lunch but was disappointed that desserts were only available after 3pm.
The food was not impressive, duck was tough, burger was average etc. The drinks were fun but taste was not as good as the looks.
I hope the restaurant would improve on the quality of their food. Maybe they could revamp the menu to cater to more comfort food types.
