Went on saturday afternoon with my girlfriend. The environment was okay, the food was okay~ But I would say that the waitress can be a little blur? They served us hot latte when we ordered ice latte. Ask for another credit card thinking that we are splitting bills when we didn't say anything about it. So if you are someone... More

The place is pretty smaller than I expect but really awesome. I went there for dinner with my friends and it is a very nice place to chill. Music is great. The staff even give their recommendations for first time customer like us. Food is really delicious but a little bit pricey.

The last time we visited, myself and my wife were both disappointed with the food. We went back as we really liked the vibe of the place and would recommend for a tea/coffee and HH until 8pm. Nice chilled atmosphere with friendly staff! However, we ordered two burgers and they mixed up the order - this happens. It took 30... More

The Reading Room is stocked with four large shelves of great books that filled the walls Of an old shophouse. With a cozy ambience and great food, it is a must visit haven if you want a place of retreat to recharge.

This is a very cosy cafe that offers a great place to chill with friends and family. It isn't a very big cafe though so can't imagine what the place is like during peak hours; was there at 9pm-ish and the place was rather quiet. It serves good variety of food and drinks. Prices are mid range. There are not... More

Such exquisite place and delicious food. I had a fantastic time here at unassuming bar in Singapore. The drinks were good, place is cosy, the music is good, prices are reasonably priced and service was top notch. Aside from the food the atmosphere was great and the service was very good as well. I had two servers looking after me... More
