Was excited to try this new gastropub after knowing that it is a specialty kitchen offspring from Bar Bar Black Sheep! It was really easy to locate the place as it is really near the River Boat Cruise . We went on a Saturday, and as expected, it was pretty crowded but the service was still excellent!
We ordered a Bombay Chaat (Savoury snacks that is typically found at food carts in India) - $6.9 to start with. It was a salty and slight sour crispy snack! An awesome snack to match beer! It is really an appetising snack which I have yet to see locally. A "die die" must try!
For the mains, we had green thai curry chicken - $12 and butter chicken (a must have at Bar Bar Black Sheep) - $12 alongside some cheese and garlic naan - $4.5. The green thai curry was not overly curry spicy, and the coconut milk was not as overwhelming as those we tried before. However, there is a light ginger aftertaste. The chicken was really tender and went really well with the curry.
The Butter Chicken curry was the BEST, never a let down. The sweet tomatoes, mixed with masala and the smooth savoury butter cream gives it a strong but not overwhelming butter curry aroma which makes it really addictive. To me, it is not as spicy as the Thai Green Curry.
The cheese and garlic naan went really well with the butter chicken curry. It was really crispy and fluffy, and smells really good with the generous amount of cheese and garlic. Perfect for cheese lovers like me!
Overall, I would give this place a 8/10 as the people are really hospitable and the service is really efficient. It is a really nice place to sit down, have a beer, watch a soccer match or simply catch up with friends. Though the price of the food may be slightly pricey, but it is definately worth every cent. Oh yes, for beer lovers, they also have a range of beers that goes at $9.90 during happy hours (opening to 8pm) which to me, is really affordable.
I will definately return to try their Tandoori chicken and Thai style oysters! Thumbs up!
