Great food despite mediocre service

We went to Smokey's BBQ in Joo Chiat on the occasion of my parents' 17th wedding anniversary today, a  Saturday night. Despite our reservation for 7:45, we only got our table at 8:25 -- an agonizing 40-minute long wait considering how hungry we were. The waiter was all sour-faced but thankfully the food came promptly. The ribs and salad was delicious and the ambiance was also very relaxing. Overall, we enjoyed our meal and left the restaurant as satisfied customers, though a little more smiles could have been an extra motivation for me to come back in the future.

Maybe just a bad day?

On great recommendations from friends, we arrived for a birthday dinner. After initially getting our drinks at a good speed, the service began to slow significantly, whereby we waited almost 20 minutes for a bottle of cider and a coca-cola. The staff informed us that the computer system wasn't

Too hot to handle

The previous reviews were quite favourable so we decided to give this a try over the weekend. The wings were nice and the drinks fairly priced esp with the Happy Hr discount. Our main courses consisted of the baby back ribs and the pulled pork sandwich. The ribs were nice and tender with a good
