Sin Heng Claypot Bak Koot Teh not only serves its namesake but also other Chinese dishes such as pig innards and glass noodles. Their specialty Bak Kut Teh is made different with the addition of 10 types of Chinese herbs and spices. One can even request the addition of abalone.
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.
Had a brush with spastic car park attendant. I went into the restaurant after parking my car and asked if they accept NETs payment. Waiter told me they dont but directed me the nearest ATM. Proceed to I21 to withdraw cash. Returned to restaurant for dinner and this rude car park attendant came to me and asked for car number. Then he exclaimed my car was wheel locked by him. I explained to him repeatedly but he refused. Thereafter i approached him again and he called the police and accused me of wanting to hurt him. Police came and tried to understand the scenario. I explained if I want to hurt him, he would have been bruises and i would not have paid the charge for unclamp. All these while, none from the restaurant staff came to assist. In fact, they even had the decency to still charhe me for my orders which I did not had the chance to eat during the 1.5 hrs standoff.
Avoid this place if you need to drive. Else food is not great.
the purpose of a queue means that it is a first come first serve basics even when there is a large table. if there is just 2 pax is understandable to let a larger group in. but what is the difference between 4 and 5 pax, the service staff have very bad attitude he didnt ask for permission and let the group behind us to have a table first when the difference of no of pax is only 1 he didnt even apologise to us and that doesnt happen only once but twice my family got fed up and left while the service staff just dont care. if you dont mind having bad service then feel free to visit the store
