WORTH the Price!! Why i say so..
So far saw the coment are good only 1bad and the person says the food is just like outside zhi cha. Yes it's like zhi cha food so you can have your dinner there BUT it's service that we got and the serving is big even for "S" size. I would really recomend their service staff is great. we will NEVER get such good service in coffee shop 'zhi cha' and big portion in coffee shop zhi cha.
Their Hot Wings is FANTASTIC!! A MUST TRY DISH =P outside coffee shop zhi cha i didn't try such nice before and even AMK hub pin si also cannot fight with them.
The hot plate tofu we ordered "S" size as like photo you see it's a big portion right? So it's worth the $$
4crabs + 4beer = S$45 only!! We tried Chili and the other i think is butter. The chili is abit too sweet but we had commented to their staff and they accepted our suggestion and we believe there will be improvement and we will certainly try it again. =)
Heard their fish head is must try so will try it on next trip.
A great chill out place but you need a vehicle to get in. Notice there is a area for children to play but not sure if it's permanent or temporary. If we went there for chill out with friends we can put our child in the play area and we can chill in peace with friends =)
Very very unpleasant dining experience.
Brought my parents all the way from Jurong, only to return in disappointment.
Reached the place around 7pm with only 4 tables occupied.
- Signature Chix Wings
- Sambal Clams
- Dou Miao
- White Rice
- Crabs promotion @$45 with 4 btls of beer (Salted eggs style)
- Honey lemon ($2.50)
- Pepsi ($2.50)
Shortly after they taken our order, the waiter informed us that the San Miguel is out of stock, they will b serving us San Miguel Light instead. It took me by surprise as the lady who took our order did not even bother to ask us what beer we prefer. I asked whether is there any other choice n was told that I will have to pay additional $10 for other brands.
Fine. San Miguel Light it shall b.
After waiting for some time, my mum's honey lemon was still not served yet. It only arrive after we highlighted to the waiter.
40mins passed n our beers were almost finished, there was still no sign of our food. Mind you, there were only 6 tables of us in total.
Finally, the waiter came to apologise n informed us that food is on the way. The long wait is due to them having only ONE chef n ONE wok.
Sambal clams n chix wings finally arrived after 45mins together with the white rice.
After we FINISHED the rice, clams n wings, the Dou Miao n crabs were still not served yet!
Worse, was when the table that arrived later than us got their food.
I summoned the lady who took our order n asked for an explanation.
She could only apologise n said, "the kitchen cocked up". She offered to give us 2 more bowls of rice FOC which I declined.
The crabs dutifully arrive after a short while.
4 small crabs cooked with salted eggs. Very nice aroma n quite tasty, however, the meat all sticked to the shell.
Finally, we finished the meal around 9+pm.
Got another surprise when we foot the bill. We were charged $55 instead of $45 for the crab promotion. The cashier explained it was because we ordered the salted egg style n they charge addition $10 for that.
I told her that we WAS NOT INFORMED. She replied coldly, "is it?"
You guys are never gonna get it any cheaper! although I must say sometimes its only 3 crabs due to its size and weight. but here a little insider news. The weight of a plate of crabs at Soulout @ farmway 1 are roughly at 1.6kg. So comparing it to a normal 'zi char' joint. you would pay, a good 40 to 45 dollars. but hey....whats awesome here is , you get a little extra as the bttls are within this price itself. Definitely worth trying, even though its for the first time....nothing to lose ya? well, I could look at it in a way where either the crabs are free or the bottles of beer are free.and yes to all of you who are reading this review, I am the owner of the place and since today i was looking through all the comments, I decided to write an honest review on my outlet itself. It is true that the waiting time here for food can be a little longer than usual due to full house days, but I can assure you, it will not happen when its only 4 tables. Customers here enjoy the ambiance so much because of the very fact that you guys will never ever find that kampong feel while u dine under the stars here in the East. The food here is relatively cheap and there is no service charge or GST included. The staff are friendly and one strong bad point about this place is...when it rains, we have minimal seats available. So do book a table in advance to avoid disappointment. another tip i would say to all readers of this review is... you guys must book our crab promotional sets in advance,just to avoid disappointment. We are a family oriented place when families of 3 to a whopping size of 16 people will normally turn up to just dine away, chat away under the stars. I do hope you guys will give this restaurant a try. If you guys dont try out our awesome food and also our serene ambiance..im sure somehow or rather there will be another pull factor to bring you guys down here.
