Great place away from everything where you can just sit back and relax. Also good with kids as they were kept amused with feeding the fish (just ask one of the workers for some fish food). As for the food, good menu with lots to choose from. Everything we choose from entrees to dessert was good other than the pizza, which just lacked any flavour. But the highlight was the whole Thai Barra, brilliant! Prices were a tad high but not too bad. Its about 20 min from Nelson Bay but nice place to escape and take it easy for lunch.

Its the only outlet that I know of having dine-in food. They serves desserts too! Their kueh lapis and pandan creamed cake is one of my favorite!

Found at the basement level, Begawan Solo is a great place for really good traditional Chendol dessert ( there's also this Avacado dessert if you like avacado ) after a meal at West Mall.

They also serve kopitiam coffee & other local snacks. Bengawan Solo's Pandan Cake is legendary.

I only like their dessert stall there. Serving chendol, chng tng and the likes. Sad to say, their pastries - kueh and cakes, taste horrid. The customer service staff are great though.

I had a craving for snow skin moon cakes at 8.30pm on a weekday and only managed to find this shop. But it was a disaster buying their mooncakes. I spent $30 and it was enough to put me off snow skin mooncakes forever.

In the past, maybe 5 years back, their pineapple rolls are one of the best, but even this signature had waned off.

For me, I will never patronise them again.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
