Amazing food - be sure to order the prawn pasta and beef sashimi.
Excellent service - from the moment we stepped out of the lift till we left, service staff took care of us professionally
Great ambience - got a little stuffy at times (no aircon), but it was breezy and well ventilated.
Location - not the most accessible, but Google maps does wonders.
Overall, a great experience! Will be back to try other fascinating creations.
Bit off the beaten track is Kilo. Even when standing right outside the building you'd be hard pressed to tell it's where this little gem is hiding, just beside Kallang river.
Seek it out though (advance booking essential BTW), and you will be rewarded with a low key interior, but high quality cuisine. Bare polished concrete floors, and walls open to the elements make for a casual, relaxed atmosphere which I really like.
The food certainly impresses. Spicy mint salmon sashimi and tuna wasabi tartare were different takes on classic dishes. For meat lovers, the slow cooked beef short ribs, and the chilli lime spicy pork were both surefire hits.
Price wise, it's good value for the quality of food. I'll definitely return here.
Doesn't look much from outside - but as ABC said if you judge a book by a cover, do you judge the look by the lover ?
Anyway as you ponder that let me describe our scrumptious meals. Went with me mum over from blighty and me fiancee (second time with her).
We shared starter - bbq ribs with potatoes - very nice bbq sauce - best yet in Singapore I've found.
Mains I had fillet steak - perfectly cooked for me at medium rare (on menu in Australian ie tenderloin), fiancee had some very nice lamb rack - and mum hit a gem with rabbit.
Washed down with nice red - and finished off with lava cake (choc) with some lovely strawberries and ice cream - again we shared.
Minor criticism with service on both occasions we've been here we've been told something we ordered is off menu when it is not. And main courses seemed stretched in terms of serving each dish. But the food is fantastic and fresh.
We made a reservation for 2 people and were horrified to have been allocated the worst seat in the restaurant - right next to the kitchen where one could feel the heat. We asked to change the tables but was turned down. Yet, another group of 2 next to us and arrived later successfully changed their table. This was absolutely infuriating. The server told us that the other group could change tables just because they had a birthday celebration.
