“Great local Nyonya food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

had lunch there with a bunch of relatives. The décor is outstanding. Lots of care gone into lots of detail. Great work. The experience is carried on by the professional staff. Lots of them and very attentive. This is capped by the talents of the kitchen. great food. The dry laksa, the eggplant dish, the beef cheeks, all spices balanced on every dish. Overall an outstanding experience. Will be back. Keep up the great work folks.

“Violet Onn for family and friends outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

A nice place chilling out with family and friends. The only concern is to book in advanced with limited seat constraints.

“Lovely food with great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

We had a reservations at 7pm and five min before, they called and advised us the table will be late as the previous diners were late. But we were already on site since they did warn us they only hold the table for 15 min. But their damage recovery was impeccable. They quickly whisked us to a table outside and offered a first drink on them plus a free starter. Who will still complain after that right? Haha. The staff also came to check on us several times during the dinner and again apologized. Senior restaurant manager Yoges was really lovely.

Food was really good too. Definitely will go back again as their best seller dessert was sold out by the time we were done with dinner. The Chianti on the wine list went perfectly with the spicy food too.

Tip:
We were advised to reserve it next time with our reservations haha ... including the satay!
