Shiok comfort food that makes you want more!

Been there twice now, and the food standard is consistent. Absolutly loving the simple dishes that are well done and reminds you of Ah-ma's cooking. Definitely must try the 1) Stewed pork belly - it melts in your mouth with just the right amount of fat 2) Chai poh egg - crispy, slightly oily and fragrant 3) Braised Pork intestines - fresh and doesn't have the pungent "porky" taste and 4) Fermented beancurd - perfect with the freeflow sweet potato porridge! For more info and pics, go to: http://weelovefood.blogspot.sg/2013/10/oasis-taiwan-porridge-superb-shiok.html :) Enjoy folks!!

do not feel welcome at all.

Food was not fantastic, service was bad with senior waitress dictating your orders. price was astronomical, e.g order fish and they did not tell us there is a price hike for the festive seasons. will not be going there again.

Great for a family gathering

I had gone to this restaurant a few years back based on a HGW recommendation. I decided to visit it again last week. Although the ambience was just as wonderful as I remembered it, the food standard has decreased slightly. 

The highy recommended stewed pork, for example, was not good at all. I had the same dish during my previous visit and it was fantastic, so I don't understand what went wrong. Change in chef? Lower quality of ingredients? 

The other two dishes we ordered were the chye poh egg and the fresh cockles. The egg was so so. The cockles were good. 

If I could recommend something from this restaurant, it'd be the abundant sweet potato porridge. It has the taste of mum's cooking. :)

Other than that, you can order other dishes. Just not the stewed pork. It's really not nice. The meat wasn't tender and there was not much taste.

Terrible first impression n very disgusted by their rude

I passed by this place during the restaurant non peak hours (about 5:15 pm) 16 May, 2012. Felt interested by the surroundings, I drove in to check out this place.

As I got out of my car, the first thing (person) that greeted me was a hostile lady. She asked me why I parked my car in their private carpark n challenged me that my car will be clamped if I do not drive off. I told her that I was considering the place for dinner. I requested her for the rationale and she was unable to explain. Instead, she pointed to a sign and walked off. I proceeded to explore the place. There was only 1 other car in this private carpark at that point of time and plenty of free lots.

Minutes later n before I could even start exploring the place, I spotted a security guard taking photo of my car. I approached him and saw him with another guy who was trying to clamp my car. I did not bother to reason with them as they may refuse to open the gantry should an argument broke out and delaying my time for my next appointment.

Personally, I'm very disappointed, furious and disgusted of the way I was being treated. No matter how good your food is or was, this is NOT the way to treat a prospective customer who is deciding where to have his dinner and may also consider to host his wedding dinner or company functions there?
