Worth the visit :)

There was a small parking space infront of the shop so for drivers, you might have to wait for a free parking space if it's full. The queueing time is reasonable, around 10 minutes. It was worth mentioning the service of the staffs there because they are very hospitable:). I was in need of the restroom and although the toilet is very visible from the outside, one of the staffs brought me all the way there and helped me to see if there were anyone in the it:). Next, the waiter was very patient and discussed the ordering of dishes together with my family:). Food wise is ok, nothing special but they met our expectations:). If you ordered bah kut teh soup, you can request for refill of the soup:). They have a number of foods to chose from,and you can chose the size of their portions. However, there were few drinks to chose from. The area can be rather warm and noisy during peak hours due to the small space in between tables. Worth the visit, but I wouldn't go all the way from yewtee to joo chiat for it. 
I spent $73 for a family of 5.

dont go unless you are desperate

Ive been a patron to this establishment for many years. Honestly, the quality of food is just average.  But it is near to my home and opens 24 hours (except for mondays). Lately the service has been horrible and today just seals the deal that i will never visit this place again. I didnt expect a fantastic 5 star service or even a good, friendly one. But today is just horrid, the older chinaman was so rude that i didnt even dare to have sip of drink he served me. First he insisted that "barley sui" is "ba li sui" then he screamed at me to just order from the printed menu, i glanced at the paper and apologized because i couldnt find the beverage menu ( i have been there over the years to know that they have barley drink) so he corrected (very angrily) that it is "bali sui". I corrected him that i wanted 1 instead of 2 yam rice in which he ignored me, after which he shouted that," i'll change it later. Can or not?!!" After i repeated myself. Like w**!? Im so dissapointed. I feel like this place has placed itself above what of what they are and acting like a big shot theyre truly not. Sad to say that i am confident that this place will be losing alot of customers

So-so food

Tried after reading reviews. Food is so so and service is not so good. Male staff is cocky and even said no matter what happens, they will have business. Such mindset is quite disturbing. Nonetheless, can try if you are looking for bah kut teh. Pls prepare cash ready as your car might get clamped if you just cross to 112 Katong to withdraw and come back. I saw a couple today got clamped even though they wanted to patronise the place.. I saw that they were gone for less than 5 min! Not a very pleasant experience being a fellow patron seeing all the commotion but I guess maybe I am a one off experience. I would probably go for other Bak Kut Teh along the stretch, or Balestier :)

good service and good food

They allow you to add soup for free. Friendly service and always ready to serve you. Can get quite crowded and need to queue up outside.

Claypot Bak Kut Teh $12 (medium) Hokkien version: I do not really find much kick in it because of the milder peppery taste as compared to the teochew version. Still, it tastes good as it is served piping hot. Fans of the traditional hokkien bkt will love the herbal taste of this. The herbal taste could be stronger though.

Claypot noodles The gravy is flavorful and the noodles has absorbed the goodness of the gravy. This is delicious however I am not a fan of this because I do not like yellow noodles.

Pig trotters Do you know that pig trotters are extremely high in collagen? Here's an excuse for you not to ditch those fatty parts of the pig trotters! Meat is tender and it is not overly fatty.

Claypot tang hoon prawns
They do not scrimp on the overall portion and the prawns were huge and fresh too. You pay for what you get!
