Time to get away from the same old fare and recharge your perspective.

If you are here just for the food and service then you are in the wrong place. The food is plain and healthy (not bad tasting at all) but the journey there is a fun trip out of the hustle and bustle of the city and when you get there, you can finally let go. I like the simply blanched fresh spinach and the chocolate banana cake with ice-cream. Oh, and don't bother about the Otah Omelette. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. The drinks are a tad boring.

By the way, if you are driving there, don't speed and drive carefully. There are many blind bends on a narrow two-way street with loads of dump trucks and very impatient drivers plying the road. Just think to yourself: you want to get there in a calm space and accident-free.

And yes, do call up to make a reservation.

Extremely unacceptable service. Warriors has disgraced their Farmers.

Went with family for a special mothers' day treat. Reserved seats in advance. When we arrived... Parking is ample. Overall place looked decent. Greeted by staff and settled down quickly. Nice touch as name was written on the reserved tag. Onwards, the experience wasn't that pleasant. No table menu. Main menu scribed on the wall with chalk. Vague and there were no pictures. Normally I am not fussy about food they serve but my mom has special dietary requirements so... Proceeded to ask the service staff regarding items on menu (Warrior's Platter, Vegetarian Platter). The Indian lady was warm but not familiar with the food served. She asked another lady, Irene, who briefly and curtly mentioned a few items vaguely. As I was considering the items, she turned and served other customers. After placing an order, I politely asked the nearest staff (IRENE) again if it is possible to shift the AIR CIRCULATOR BLOWING DIRECTLY AT OUR TABE, beside our table. She curtly declared her customers will feel stuffy if she shifted it. Never mind. After moving the fan, she gave an unhappy face. And walked away. It was so obvious my whole family's mood was affected. Totally unprofessional attitude. Haughty and stuck up. The food is fantastic. My advice : Just order and don't make any other requirements or inquiries. Treat that place like a hawker center. Eat and go. 1) There was no

Healthy Boost from Poison Ivy Bistro @ Bollywood Veggies Farm

A sign that greats you as you enter the premises of Bollywood Veggies tells you that you are in paradise. Perhaps, away from the bustle, away from the pressures of city life, you really are.

A great respite from our usual salty, MSG-laden hawker food. Poisonous, in their words. Prices are also really reasonable with no GST and no service charge! What you see is what you get.

The platters for four are a good deal if you can't decide what to choose from the menu. They also have a decent vegetarian selection if you are a plant-eater. Even if you don't have four, you can ask the staff for a vegetarian platter for less people too. 

Nasi Lemak at $5 had really fragrant lemak rice, a wholesome meal served with omelette, eggplant, ikan billis, tapioca cheap and a really nice belachan chilli. Available on weekends only.

The vegetables and salad were really good too. I had the kangkong and pumpkin salad and I think it was supposed to be organic! Less salt, less oil, really healthy indeed.

Nice surrounding with decent food

For full review, http://gingybite.blogspot.sg/2014/01/poison-ivy-bistro-bollywood-veggies.html
The surroundings was fantanstic as it provides a getaway from the busy city life. Food served here was decent but a few feathers left on the chicken and a piece of plastic found in my salad gave me impression that the kitchen crew was not attentive to details.

Healthy eating in the lush Kranji Countryside!

You know, brunch is not all about eggs and pancakes. Since we had travelled all the way here, it was absolutely necessary for us to settle our brunch at Poison Ivy Bistro. The Poison Ivy Bistro is aptly named after farmpreneur Ivy Singh-Lim, a fiesty 63 year old who is not afraid to say what’s on her mind. Expect only healthy meals with the freshest farm produce at Poison Ivy Bistro. There is no MSG and very little salt is used. If you prefer more salt, just ask for the ‘poison’. Oh, do note that payment is to be made by cash only.

We shared three servings of Brown Rice between ourselves. On average, the starters and mains are priced at $4 and $6 respectively.

I suggested ordering the Bolly Banana Curry because banana and curry sounded like a pretty interesting combination! This dish wasn’t very spicy and the texture of the banana was akin to that of boiled potatoes. Do you know that Bollywood Veggies’ key offering is bananas? Their bananas are legendary and there are over 20 different types! You must try their bananas when you go there!

Of the two curry mains, I very much prefer the Warrior’s Chicken Curry which does not contain coconut milk. The curry is thick and well-flavored with a variety of spices, while the chicken is cooked till tender. In general, I found that this was suitably spicy and would appeal to most people.

As the saying goes, ‘never judge a book by its cover’. The same can be said for the Otah Omelette. This might look like an ordinary piece of omelette with a slab of otah but there’s more than meets the eye. Generous chunks of fish meat could be found in the otah and the egg omelette was extremely lemak!
