Good food and good ambience for groups. Make sure you get a reservation for large groups. My only gripe was the credit card and NETS machine was down and we had to pay for 7 people with cash.

We booked a reservation for 2 however the restaurant did not receive our request. But they still gave us a table outside. The food was good. So many variety to choose from. And everything that we order was amazing(or maybe because we were hungry :)

Went there for lunch with colleagues. Was promptly brought to our seats at level 2. The decor was really nice, creates a homely feel. Even though our group was quite big (total of 16 pax), the serving speed was quite good. Can try out their Pannbiff and the salmon.

The decor is great. The ambience ok. The service bad. The staff don't smile. Maybe they feel that they have a demand so they do not have to smile. Demand can always go down. I asked for a teaspoon. The waiter replied with a "hold on". I still replied with a "thank you". You know who you are. They are... More

The food was great... great value for money... The only thing is we cancelled our Fika Salad but still the cashier charged us. Wasnt able to inform the staff cause we are hurrying up due to heavy rain.

The ground floor dining area has been renovated and looks more spacious & comfortable. The food is of the same high standard. Prices reasonable.

Now my first visit, therefore I know what I want to eat but this time I decided to give the Fisherman Pasta a try along with meatballs (shared) and a cup of Apple Tea. We love the yummylicious meatballs. I find that the Fisherman Pasta a bit too oily even though they use olive oil. Probably cut down slightly on... More

The food was amazing and we didn't wait long for our dishes. Ambience was great, however, we wanted to be seated on the second floor which I heard was really pretty, but the staff mentioned that it was closed as there weren't many customers that Thursday afternoon and required us to be seated on the first floor only. Oh wells.... More

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
