“Excellent Laksa & more..”
Reviewed 24 November 2008

We love the Laksa and curry puffs. A must to try when you are in Ottawa. We have been going there ever since the restaurant opened over 20 years ago.

“Fabulous Malaysian food”
Reviewed 18 November 2008

My favourite restaurant in Ottawa!! I've been going for 10 years, and my hubby has been going ever since it opened about 20 years ago.

We usually both order satay salad with the most AWESOME peanut sauce dressing, laksa, and either lemon chicken or sesame chicken. I occasionally go with something other than laksa, but no matter what I get, the food is always fresh and delicious :-) It's our "go-to" restaurant when we take out-of-town guests out for dinner. Everybody we've brought here loves it!!

BTW, laksa is their signature dish. It's a bowl of thin rice vermicelli, chicken, bean sprouts, shrimp, egg, and green onion in a curry soup that you can order anywhere from mild to super-hot.

They'll modify a dish for you if you ask, and you can get varying levels of heat., plus a dish of hot sauce at your table. The service is fast and friendly, and the waiter and owner are fun to chat with :-)

The Singapore isn't fancy, but that's part of its charm :-) It's a family-run restaurant that serves up delicious food at a very reasonable price and provides great service. What more could you ask for?!

“Family favourite”
Reviewed 17 November 2008

Definitely an all-time favourite in Ottawa. The curry puffs are great, as is the lemon chicken. Staff is always very friendly and accomodating. I recommend getting the satay (which you cook yourself on the table) and also the singapore salad, which has a fantastic peanut dressing. well worth a visit from any corner of the city.

“I am a regular there!”
Reviewed 15 November 2008

This is my perennial favorite place for something exotic that has become familiar. Try their Laksa - shrimp and chicken vermicelli in a curry broth - modified from the Penang style but very special nonetheless.

Satay is a nice appetizer. Curry puffs are spicy and yum. Lemon chicken is succulent and mouth-watering. Spicy orange chicken is wonderfully served on a hot plate.

Wash it all down with an ice-cold TsingTao beer!

The service is very friendly and you can chat up the owners about anything under the sun.
