Good food, reasonable prices!



Always a good place to eat at but the queue is always so long so if you are going with ur family please go earlier / later around 8ish pm for dinner. I have yet to try their awesome curry fish head because I went at that time and the small curry fishhead was already sold out L

Ambience/Setting

it’s a zhi char place so what can you expect, it’s gonna be noisy! Because it’s a very family orientated restaurant you will expect lots of kids running around although the restaurant is not that big. Prolly seats about 40 odd people :)

Service

hmm I would say the people there are friendly and nice so service wise not too bad !

Food

I ordered the prawn paste chicken because one of the staff highly recommended it to us J and it tasted rly not too bad! And we order claypot tofu which was MMM YUMMY! J and since there was no more small curry fish head we ordered the yam basket and man was it good! Crispy on the outside and soft in the inside with so much ingredients inside it!

Overall, definitely worth going back and infact I am going to! :D shall be taking more pictures when i return!

It wasn't too busy, and there were only about 6 families eating there.

I had ordered 3 dishes and 2 rice for the two of us, for SGD$35, with no GST or Service Charge. At about SGD$10 per dish, it was pretty standard.

They charge for wet tissues at 30 cents each. So if you want to save on wet towels, then best to return to the staff. =P

"Home-made" BarleyIt was so bland, it tasted like cloudy lemon water. =/ Not a trace of Barley other than the Barley Pulp at the bottom of the glass.

First dish served!

Sweet & Sour Pork

More sour than sweet. But pork was crunchy. So were the tomato, cucumber, capsicum and pineapple slices.

Second Dish!

Cereal Chicken

 A cross between popcorn chicken and cereal prawn. Crunchy chicken bites with sweet and crunchy cereal. But the cereal was too oily.

Baby Kailan with BeefBeef was tender and juicy. But seasoned with too much salt or soy sauce. It was too salty and my taste buds shrivelled upon the second bite.

The Bland Barley saved our taste buds in this instance.

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.

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
