Went here for dinner, took a risk with the shady reviews. Took a friend of mine and was immensely appointed. Ordered 3 dishes including hainanese chicken rice, was tragically bad.

Convenient place for lunch, especially if you work across the street! But if not, the food is tasty, reliable, fast, and well priced. Portions are generous and will easily fill you up. Servers are friendly and try hard to bring you your order quickly. Occasional hiccups are sorted out quickly and often come with a small discount. My colleagues and... More

The style of the restaurant is kept simple which is fine but if you put Hawker's food as a subtitle you shouldn't be charging prices like 120 rmb for a laksa and some side dishes. The food was good and authentic but not something I will long to go back to.

The fish head was big, enough for two people. 2) Laksa was nice, lemak,but, cannot compare to Katong laksa. No cockles....SIGH.... 3) Sambal kang kong,... More

I simply love the Laksa Yong Tau Foo. The gravy for laksa is yummy and it would be nicer if it is spicier.. Sambal fish-cake is just so-so. I fell in love with the laksa and it is a great place for some Asian food, the price is a bit steep for a 'kopitiam' ambience.

Food is great, kids love the sandwiches and fries and grown-ups can be more adventurous. Everyone raves about the pandan cake, but truthfully, I don't get it.

Went there two weeks ago with Singaporian friends and I must say its something different in the heart of Beijing. The restaurant is located accross Canadian embassy. The atmostphere is like where local Singaporian would go. The food is pretty authentic and the place is decorated with pictures of Singapore past.
