J's is located at Purvis Street and specialises in Latin cuisine. Vegetarians will be delighted that the restaurant offers an array of specially created dishes that do not contain any meat, eggs and alcohol.
Had been to J's the first time for a birthday dinner with my friends. Service was good and food was amazing. As I couldn't take beef, I'm glad that there were other meat options available for the quesadillas and adobo chicken that I could try. We also had the small paella to share. I think we ordered 4 dishes to be shared among 8 people and we were stuffed!
Went to J's again with my boyfriend for our anniversary. We wanted a quiet place to dine as the 1st level was quite noisy and full of echoes. The lady was very kind to bring us upstairs - although it was very inconvenient for her to be staying upstairs with us as there were no other customers seated except us! Paella was amazing as usual, full of flavour. Adobo chicken was great also and their osmanthus sencha tea was very fragrant. Pumpkin soup was creamy and rich. Nothing to complain about! In fact, I would recommend my family and friends to come here even if they are not adventurous to try Mexican food because it isn't too far off from our local tastebuds
At first glance the items might seem pricey but take note:
- Servings are HUGE
- Good quality ingredients
- Served hot
- Great customer service
Made reservations for a birthday dinner. Started out with a small guestlist of about 5 to 8 people which finally burst into 18 guests. I had to cater to guests with different needs (i.e. Halal and Vegetarian and of course meat eaters). So this place was already a good pick. The Manager, Ali, spoke to him over the phone a couple of times. Always quick to provide a solution to any issues that I had run into. Provided for us a place upstairs and had already pre-planned extra seats just in case I had extra guests that came. The staff that attended to us were very attentive and saw to everything we needed. On top of all of this, the food was splendid and everything we ordered was perfect. I feel the price I paid for service and food was reasonable. Overall it was a memorable experience at this restaurant and I would definitely go back there again.

Poppers ($17) - breaded jalapenos stuffed with mozzarella. I'm not too big a fan of jalapenos since they can be a bit too spicy for me but the Poppers were very interesting with thick mozzarella oozing out.
Chicken Quesadillas ($22). Tortilla stuffed with chicken, tomatoes, cheese, onions and guacamole.
Paella with marinated chicken, salmon and tilapia. This was so different from the usual paella that I was used to. The rice grains were moist and mushy, not the usual crispy grains found and it tasted a little like nasi briyani.
Would only dine here if you want halal paella because there isn't many choices around? That was my pathetic paella order that tasted so fake. My partner ordered the chicken adobo which looks really delish with the nice gravy. However when he cut into the chicken drumstick we could tell they were using frozen chicken. Charging so much and not providing quality? That's a shame.
