Lazy Saturday Lunch

I needed some sustenance on a saturday afternoon and decided to see what Bar bar was all about. It is always packed even on weekday evenings with a good mix of drinkers and diners.

They have a Indian, Thai and Western food stalls; I decided to plump for the Western as I was craving fries.

The burger was no-frills but the beef was good and juicy. The mushrooms were a nice touch. My companion had the fish and chips which were decent from the piece I stole from him. The star of the place are the fries... every single one was crisp and golden and they give you a huge pile! Great value for money at $13 (most of the mains at the Western Stall are $13 with the exception of the steaks)

Soft drinks were very reasonable too at $2. And if you had a beer you wouldnt be paying more than $20 for your whole meal... a bargain.

Next time I will try the Thai food as food at the table next to us looked good!

Not much ambience to talk about... rickety wooden tables and odd stools but it exudes a friendly chilled atmosphere. Definitely a good local.

I'd rather go hawker

Very average food but place is not clean that makes you think if their kitchen is same dirty. No water served - it is really weird. I was shocked Lady Iron Chief has recommended this place, they should have paid her.

Horrible food and service. I hope I won't get food poisoning from this meal

Nachos are awful with cinema type of cheese sauce and miserable pot of salsa which is not even to dip more than 5 nachos. Asked for an extra portion and they are charging extra per miserable portion! Coke was flat .. Worst of all.. Luckily I checked my tandoori chicken as it was totally raw in the middk. I almost puke biting into the piece of raw chicken. I was disappointed and upset throughout the meal. Told them I cannot afford to have food poisoning as I am pregnant. They replaced me with a smaller portion of chicken which was chargrilled at the side... Poor service and yes they would not provide any free water since I had a flat coke!! Will not go back agai

NO FREE WATER!

1 vote just for the audacity of not providing free tap water. You even proudly advertise it on all your walls and menu.

Just serve free tap water!

on to the review: (this is for the Katong branch)

Ok, so what are you? a Bar or a restaurant? I don’t think you know yet.

We chose from the western menu and we were very disappointed. My wife chose the Green Curry Burger, I chose the Cheese burger and mother-in-law chose the fish & Chips.

Wifes burger came out first, then 10 minutes later came my burger, then 15 minutes later came the fish & chips.

The Fish was not cooked at all, so we sent it back, came back cooked a little bit better, but still had sections of raw fish. The batter was just too thick. We then asked for it to be swapped to another dish. We ordered the tom yum soup which arrived 20 minutes later.

Do you really think you deserve anything more than 1 after that?

The Cheese burger would have to be one of the sloppiest I have ever tried. I needed 200 serviettes just to see my hands. The meat patty was not too bad, but the bun quality was poor for such a sloppy burger.

The only redeeming item of the night was the service. You advertise so proudly “No Service Charge”, but I would have gladly paid a service charge. We were served promptly and with friendly staff.

Oh and what sort of restaurant doesn’t have small spoons?

Beer selection and pricing was not too bad, so I would only recommend this place for a casual drink and that’s it.
