Lunch was great big mama

My wife and daughter suggested this place today. The food is tasty and no MSG. Come early if you didn't make reservations.

Horrible service, do not recommend this place

the service is atrocious and horrible. we initially booked for 9 pax and eventually only 6 pax turned up because of last minute change of plans. Called to tell them half hour before reservation. When we arrived, we got reprimanded badly. When we explained our situation was due to unforeseen circumstances, they continued nagging and reprimanding us. Eventually, we were so unhappy that we threatened not to eat there. Their attitude was nonchalant and they turned us away. They blatantly told us to leave. 

Seriously, for the prices there I would expect better service. It is a typical restaurant and I would prefer paying more for more expensive restaurants with staff who treat us with respect. The so called manager was the worse. The staff is too stuck up and arrogant.

definitely will not introduce this place to my friends to save them the agony. It was a horrible experience.

Very poor service attitude

The service is appalling, with poor and arrogant attitude from the manager. Food is OK but not worth the price. I will not patronise again for sure.

Disappointed with the service

I think it was over rated by online reviews. Went yesterday with my friends for some celebration but end up eating unhappily. Service there was very bad, waitress was rude and unfriendly. Ordered the stew but as it was too thick and spicy, we request to add some water but was not allow. Pour water in ourselves for a few times and the waitress just walked over, turn off the stove gas and walked away without saying anything. One of the staff seem not knowledgeable as we request to add ramen and he said he will check for us whether able to do that but in menu already stated the price, and never get back to us only till we asked again, they mentioned have already add in. Wanted to call for assistance at times but was given a impatient and unhappy face.

Bad service makes us don't enjoy the food even if the food is nice. Most of the food we ordered were too spicy for my friends too. Would rather visit T*** at Tanjong pagar than coming back here again.

i think its more suitable for lunch if you are there to just eat and go once u finish but definitely not suitable for celebrations.

spend around $36/pax for 3 person.
