Overly-priced for Poor quality, luke warm food

My partner & I wanted to try a new and different restaurant in one of the most talked about & oldest town in Geylang.

Without doing proper research, we stumbled upon Chilli Padi.

We've had Peranakan before and each time was sensational.

We thought we couldn't go wrong with a restaurant in a famous town like Geylang, but we were wrong.

We ordered the popiah as entre, beef rendang, nonya fish, ayam buah keluak (chicken dish cooked with nuts in a rich sauce), mixed vegetables and pork soup.

Although the popiah was generous with the serving size, it was tasteless to say the least. The meat in the beef rendang was of poor quality (alot of fatty chewy bits) and along side the chicken dish it was luke warm and tasted like it was pre-cooked. The pork soup tasted like Bak Kut Teh (very peppery) however I dont think that was intentional.

Lastly, although the flavour of the mixed vegetables wasn't too bad, it had a lot of MSG which had me guzzling down a litre of water afterwards.

They even charged us for the small serving of pickles (which they served on every table) and as well as the wet hand towels.

Depsite the restuarant having won all these awards which are displayed all over the restaurant wall, I would definitely NOT come back here again.

We spent $50 pp for luke warm (not restaurant quality food). I could have had a nice crab meal at Jumbo for that money.

we came back here after i had a particularly good meal courtesy of the catering arm of this place, and I’m sorry to say that it was a mixed bag of hits and misses, and not quite interesting enough to return for.     we started off with popiah (my favorite local dish) and kueh pie tee, both incorporating the same sweet braised turnip. the filling was certainly tasty (though not the best I’ve had); between the two, the crispy shell of the pie tee proved the better choice.   onward from an uninspiring start, and we got lucky with the otak wrapped in cabbage, rich with coconut milk and a satisfying spiced fish paste filling, as well as the prawns in a tangy tamarind sauce. both went very well with rice.   the curry fish head was disappointing though: the gravy on the watery side, a small handful of vegetables, and a fish head with very little meat. It wasn’t an inexpensive dish neither – definitely not worth it.
