Was told by my friends that there is a little known restaurant located at South Bridge road that serves a very nice dish called curry prawns or something like that. Since I love seafood so why not give it a try? Anyway, went there last Sunday with my family of 6. When I first reached there, I was a bit reluctant to go in as it was rather empty...only 1 table that was occupied.....so the usual mindset of no crowd equals no good.....but heck, since I am already there and everyone is hungry plus friends recommendation....just try lah....never try, never know!! So I ordered the curry prawns and upon the Indian captain recommendations, I ordered the XO fried rice, signature spare ribs, stir fried lotus roots, fried chicken in Sze Chuan style and the lobster steamed rice....one interesting point to note, the indian chap can actually speak chinese!!! The food came and yes, I am glad I went in, fortune favors the bold!! The curry prawn is really good....it comes in a claypot with curry gravy...the gravy is a bit creamy and the taste is just wonderful...especially with the little fired mantous....I was told no water or coconut milk was used to cook it....but they refused to tell me what they used!! The lobster steam rice is very fragrant but a bit oily, the fried chicken is very nice since they used basil leafs and big chillis (both my favourite ingredients :) ....Spare ribs is soft and I my kids love the taste, a bit sweet....the XO fried rice is unlike what you eat at the zi chay store....they really put in good ingredients like "silver fish" etc...the stir fried lotus roots is a rather nice dish to me and I would say it taste fine :) Overall, I am satisfied and its not pricey..i think less then $200....thats reasonable considering we had lobster as well....ambience is good....very modern and comfortable....oh and yes, I was given the VIP room since no one was using it and i actually asked the indian chap for it :)
I spent $33 per person.
