Good Chinese food in the East!

Please go to for photos!

Ever since I read Straits Times food reviewer, Tan Hsueh Yun's review on Tonny Restaurant, I knew I had to come here. I find it slightly amusing that this place is draped in red at every corner. Well, I guess that's how traditional Chinese restaurants typically look like.

Photos of the chef with celebrities are plastered on the glass panels of the restaurant. This chef is a bit of a big shot- Renowned chef from Hong Kong who frequently appears on Channel 8 programmes.

This is the famous Crispy Yam with Truffle Oil ($12). This starter consists of very thin strips of deep fried yam, coupled with a light drizzle of truffle oil. This made a perfect starter- not oily and appetising.

Another famous dish- Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon ($9 per pax). At this point, I was already starting to get pretty impressed with the way ingredients come together. Here, we have some lobster puree cooked with egg white. This might be enough for two to share. The egg white consistency together with the crispy shell made a perfect combination. Plus the garnish on top the lobster puree added more flavour to this already impressive dish.

The Pan-Fried Cod Fish Filled with Soya Sauce ($33) was absolutely delightful. Fresh fish with a flavourful sauce which was not too thick or salty. I'm starting to wonder, whoever's cooking these dishes has been blessed with lots of culinary talent.

I was enjoying all the food in between that I didn't even bother capturing the photos of the dishes. What happened in between- we had Crab Congee ($36- this depends on the amount of crab you want in the porridge) and Beans with Dried Shrimps ($14).

The crab congee wasn't as impressive as I thought it would be. Anyhow, it had the interesting addition of green beans. The Beans were crunchy and the dried shrimps were deep fried and aromatic.

Lastly, we had some noodles ($14) to round off the dinner. This had salted egg yolk in it, which made the texture of the noodles slightly different than what we are accustomed to.

In all, this meal for 6 people cost $200. Worth every cent to try good and innovative dishes. Ambience nothing to rave about but service was pretty decent as well. Recommended!

For $12, is it even possible for a restaurant to deliver a quality?

Full Review Here.

Like the previous reviewer, I too was at Tonny's Restaurant for the 5-course Abalone Groupon. If you know Groupon's policies, only half of the $24 we paid (for the so-called $48 value menu) goes to the restaurant. So for $12, realistically speaking there's no way we were going to

Most ridiculous price, EVER!

I bought the Groupon offer and went there for what we think will be a nice meal, especially when Groupon stated it as "Award Winning Tonny Restaurant".

The location was at the previous "Tu Biao" (Rabbit Brand) restaurant along Joo Chiat. My family loved Tu Biao, but it no longer exist.

Tonny Restaurant in Joo Chiat

We had 4 dishes during our CNY visit. Overall, these simple dishes were made "too complicated", resulting in the higher costs of our orders. Besides the Ee Fu Noodles, most dishes lack the "aroma" from cooking in a hot wok.
