Description: Best known for its Taiwan Porridge, local fare and local high tea buffet, the Coffee Lounge at Goodwood Park Hotel Singapore has been a favoured haunt of many local and foreign gourmands since its opening in 1977. The Taiwan Porridge menu has become a popular mainstay at the Coffee Lounge where diners have consistently returned to enjoy a quality dining experience and Taiwan Porridge fare at reasonable prices. The "Design Your Own Local Degustation Set Menu" showcases the best of popular Singaporean fare in 3-Course and 4-Course sets which feature small tasting portions of each dish. The menu also includes a delectable dessert buffet. Guests can eat to their hearts' content from a sumptuous high tea buffet spread with more than 20 popular local snacks, mains and desserts. It is a great way to spend a leisurely afternoon with family and friends.

When visiting Singapore several times a year, we usually stay at the Goodwood Park. Among other reasons, the Hotel’s Coffee Lounge serves some remarkably good local cuisine, although it is more famous for its Taiwanese porridge. A good test of an establishment is their Singapore Laksa which, if well prepared, is a wonderful blend of Malay and Chinese styles. Aficionados will go a long way to compare Laksa and exchange notes as to where it is best. Our personal preference at present is for the Coffee Lounge (although you do need to tell the cook to make sure that the soup is not, not lukewarm). The dish here has all the ingredients of the classic Singapore Laksa with the usual side bowl of sambal for those who like it spicy. Roaming around the other local dishes, the Sate, the Fish Curry and the Chicken Curry were all well up to par. If you are staying at the Goodwood Park or even not too far away, the Coffee Lounge is well worth a visit. The service is also excellent.

Went for dinner here with two other friends on a weekday evening. The food is good but not exceptional. Service staff is attentive and tries to accommodate a vegetarian (meatless) request but maybe the chef was the one who got it wrong. Because of the upcoming festive season there were 'festive' desserts but the selection was limited. Overall be prepared to pay for the food (which is not spectacular) and the 'classy' ambience. You might be better off at a regular Teo chew porridge place if you are not one for the hotel restaurant ambience.

This is not a cheap cuppa but it is high tea at its absolute best.
Skip lunch save yourself for all the tasty offerings and you probably won't need dinner so in that respect it is good value.
Make sure you book.

In the context of the Goodwood Park Hotel, the Coffee lounge is a rather middle of the road place with middle of the road food. We were there for a business dinner. Service was unattentive, and the waitress needed explanations on everything. The noodle dishes were nothing special, and the sateh was so-so. An uninspired and uninspiring place. SHame because the rest of the hotel and previous experience at the Chinese restaurant are really good.
