This place basically serves 'atas singaporean food'. Local delights packaged and remixed in a restaurant setting!

Loved the food, especially with a western fusion twist. Tried the omelette, nasi lemak, chicken curry and otak otak (personal favourite, fresh and fragrant). A tad expensive, but yummy nonetheless.

Good for sunday brunch / lunch and dinners.

I've had the superb rendang and bite size fried chicken thrice now and I'm definitely going back for more. I"ve heard mixed reviews about the place but it's usually when someone steers away from their specialty which is nasi lemak, rendang, fried chicken and their amazing local desserts that take on a wicked twist like the Shendol and Pulot Hitam pudding with coconut ice cream and butterscotch sauce. AS with all restaurants, Wok & Barrel excels in some areas and misses in others, but if it's good hearty local food with a unique twist you're craving, then tis is the place to be. The service is first class and I love that they have many variety of drinks and beer to wash down the curry. Nice, casual, informal setting. Anyone will feel comfortable here.

We'd been to Wok and Barrel a few months ago and had a decent meal with chilli soft shell crab and rendang pizza, and we'd decided to revisit the place for a light Sunday lunch.

My wife ordered a mushroom vegan wrap and I'd ordered a nasi lemak with otah.

The vegan wrap was 2 sorry pieces of lettuce leaf filled with haphazardly chopped vegetables. It tasted and looked amateur at best

The otak was a steamed piece of fish- in a bland, tasteless sauce.

Nasi lemak was devoid of lemak, and a collection of old-looking, soggy cabbage bits  purported to be the coleslaw.

There was an overwhelming tang of garlic throughout the meal. And I am normally very fond of garlic, but this was sharp and overpowering and added to the bad taste the meal left behind, especially after a bill of $30.

Still processing what just happened. Profoundly disappointed and $30 poorer. Come on wok and barrel I am sure you can do better!
