Rustic place, good food, bad service

We arrived about an hour after opening time, a table was already taken, but the place was still so dimly lit it appeared to be still closed at a glance. Upon entering, the wait staff made no acknowledgement of our arrival and they appeared stressed out and busy despite it being the start of the day. After waiting in awkward silence, we were finally attended to. We placed our order at the cashier as instructed, paid up and were finally shown to our table. No welcoming smiles nor appology for the wait.

Service aside, the place had a rustic feel. Menu a chalkboard mounted on the wall. The menu also changes routinely, providing a reason to keep returning to try new dishes. We ordered a pitcher of passionfruit juice to share- delicious, refreshing and it tasted really healthy. Salad with buffalo cheese and parma ham- I've never like eating salads outside but this won me over. Sous Vide Salmon- cooked to perfection, still moist and very tender, absent of any fishyness. Ribeye steak ordered medium-rare, came slightly overcooked to medium; but still tasted great and served with a side of whipped potatoes that was very smooth. Brownie and vnilla ice-cream was for dessert- well, best brownie ever. moist warm cake with vanilla ice-cream so fragrant (visible vanilla pod seeds). Yum!

The place got gradually more crowded and was half-full by the time we left. Great place, Great food. Bad service...

Went there for lunch with a couple of friends. I ordered the fish dish which was a small portion so if you get arrive hungry then you are unlikely to leave full. Half way through my meal I realise that the fish fillet was rubbery and very under cooked in the middle which meant that over 50% of the

Rustic, affordable food for office goers

This is a review of the food menu, not the bar, which in itself deserves another write up.

The menu is scribbled on the wall with chalk for easy changes, currently having a grand total of 4 mains, 1 soup and a drink. Perfect for people with ADHD. It's a small kitchen, so rather than focusing o

A Friendly and Affordable Lunch in CBD

Their place is quite unique, a bit raw in a way. This is our first time to try their lunch. They only have one menu for lunch which is their lunch set with 3 option for the main dish. I would say their price is quite cheap compare with what they give us.
