Good place to bring kids

The kids eat free so we were there to check out the food. Spaghetti Bolognese (kid's meal) - strangely, the beef Bolognese was pretty dry and taste slightly burnt and a little hard too. Not the best tasting dish really. Burger & corn (kid's meal) - the burger is a cheese burger essentially and it comes with a cob of corn. Burger was ok and corn was nicely grilled. Macho Nachos - a generous plate of nachos with melted cheese and guacamole and salsa. Not the best I've had but ok for a $15 plate. Prime Steak - it's a very decent 200g cut that nicely grilled. I had mine with garlic mushrooms and those were good too. I asked mine as medium rare but I think it was a little more done than medium rare. As a steak house, I thought they should have gotten the done-ness right. What's BEST about this place is actually the play area they have set up. They even have a nanny to watch the kids. So the kids can have their meals and entertain themselves, while the adults can continue to enjoy their food and drinks leisurely and undisturbed. I may return, not so much for the food but more for the kids having a good time after their meals.

In short, food was not bad, surroundings at CHIJMES were fun, but the prices were a little steep.  Particularly recommend the steak, which Hog's Breath justifiably boast about.

The food was cold, the steak was chewy and far from medium rare. And all came to hefty prize. They don't even serve tab water for free.
