This jauntily-named Nonya family restaurant is headed by a true-blue Peranakan chef. All the familiar favourites are on the menu, as well as some of the chef's family recipes such as kari lemak udang kertak (crayfish made with a curry of ground spices and curry powder). The rendang dishes tend to be served with more sauce to suits customers' preferences.

We liked it...

Brought some friends to this restaurant yesterday for lunch and had a wonderful meal that averaged just under $30 per person. As there were 9 of us we ordered the set lunch for 8 people. We were there early, just when the doors opened, but the kitchen was ready to go. We did not have to wait for the food....it was on the table about 15 minutes after the orders were finalised. The service was excellent -- attentive waiters and waitresses who made useful suggestions regarding the options available. The quality of the food was good and none of the dishes disappointed. The portions were generous and there was even food left over to take away.

We arrived at 9pm and were given a menu and asked for our drinks order. Only after the drinks arrived did a smarmy waiter arrive saying most items are not available. So hubby turns to me and says - this means the chef is too lazy to cook anything else. Smarmy waiter realised we are it his usual passive clientele and sharply changes his tune saying order what we like and he will ask the chef to cook. Order comes and food is good however at 9.30 they want to close the bill after trying to empty an entire bottle of wine as fast as they possibly can into our glasses. At 9.45 they tell us they are closing, turn off air con, pack their bags then at 9.50 and 9.55 keep comin up saying they are closed! Worst service and overall bad manners I have ever seen in Singapore and probably all of Asia!

I grew up eating peranakan food. This is authentic. Do note that each peranakan cook has their own take on recipes. Food here is yummy and captures the essence of peranakan cooking. Rending is great. Desserts are special too and they offer some rare hard to find traditional nonya items. Tip: if you are driving and not a member of Keppel club. Park at the multi storey carpark before the main open air car park entrance. It is MUCH cheaper.

I have been here twice and both times have come out satisfied.

This time we ordered;
 
- AYAM BUAH KELUAK (Chicken braised with the Indonesian black nuts),
- IKAN GARAM ASSAM (Red snapper fillets are cooked in a spicy garam assam gravy with brinjals and ladyfingers),
- BEEF RENDANG,
- SAMBAL KANGKONG,
- NYONYA NGOH HIANG WITH LUAK CHYE          

My favourite was the chicken - I love the black nut sauce. The beef rendang lacked flavour (the sauce was a bit too watery for my liking) however the beef was nice and tender.

The fish was nicely cooked and very tender. And the sambal kangkong packed a punch.

The NYONYA NGOH HIANG WITH LUAK CHYE was interesting. It was nothing to rave on about but it wasnt bad either.

For dessert we had the BUBOH CHA CHA (yams and sweet potatoes served in a light coconut sauce with sago pearls) and APOM BERKUAH (Rice flour pancakes served with warm banana sauce). The flavours were nice and my only complaint is that I would have liked more yams, sweet potato & sago pearls in my BUBOH CHA CHA.

Overall, the quality of food was good except they dont serve their food piping hot and that is what I prefer.

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
