Traditional nasi goreng and kueis as must try!

My friends and I tried their Nasi Goreng as recommended from ladyironchef. It was delicious although I wouldnt say the chilli was the best. We also tried their english tea which was pretty special from the average. Do try out their traditional kueis as dessert!

Spent our $30 per person.

The ambience of the place is nice, smoothing music and comfortable for chatting. Had quite a gd time with my friends there, will definitelly come back again.

Awesome place to chill over High Tea

The week can't get any better than to indulge yourself during tea at InterContinental Singapore's Lobby Lounge. There were 2 options for the afternoon tea, either a Peranakan High Tea or a English High Tea. We went ahead for the Peranakan to experience something different. As InterContinental Singapore, the only hotel in Singapore to preserve Peranakan artistry in a shophouse-style setting, we thought it would be great to experience their peranakan High tea style. And the design and interiors of the lounge suit the atmosphere for an afternoon of tradition eats. The treats were just scumptious!

Thanks! x

Great place to chill

We come here every other week for lunch or dinner or simply for a drink. The quality here is in all dimensions simply superb: nice and peaceful environment, consistently attentive and efficient service and a great choice of small bites up to full blown meals - all tasty and arranged with dedication.

It is understood that all this comes at a price but one things is certain: there are quite a number of restaurants out there that are providing simply horrible quality in all mentioned areas and charge the same or more.

Ambience for a price.

I had to wait for someone for an hour or 2 so decided to rest at this quiet lounge during noon time.

The big pot of rooibos tea cost me $13. The tea fillings was generous and aesthetically, from the surroundings to the carpet, chair, table, teapot and cups, it was really nice.

The armchair is comfortable, the music soothing, and the quiet ambience gives you a very relaxed feeling. Overall, it is a nice place to read a book/newspapers, or to spend time reflecting, pending down thoughts and having little distraction around you. It comes with a price though :)

totally not worth it, lousy quality

With the title above, I need to state why. Read on if you are curious.

We ordered

Cheese Fondue- $25-

was supposed to be a mix of Emnental cheese with white wine. It was so watery. I wonder if a cheese fondue should have such thinness.It was combined with ham(which was nice), asparagus, sauteed onions, baguette, carrot sticks, celery sticks.

Dark Chocolate Fondue- $25

The consistency was LUMPY... yewl.. too thick you might wonder? I don't think so.. I just think they didn't stir it well enough when they were melting the chocolate.. yet they dared to serve it. totally unexpected. Even Haagen Dazz chocolate fondue is so much better. It was served with raspberries(not fresh), strawberries(normal only), mini cookies(not bad), madeleines(stale!, totally not fresh)

The essence of fondues are not only the main ingredients served with it, but also the chocolate and cheese. With the main actors gone awry, how can you expect to enjoy your meal?

The sticks used to dip the fondues were old and the red portion of the sticks were quite loose, hence the handling of it could be slipped out easily. They did not have the initiative to offer us 2 separate sticks since we ordered both cheese and chocolate fondues, which meant that the chocolate could have been mixed with the cheese if we didn't use out forks instead.

They also did not have the initiative to offer us water after we had ordered our drinks.

The only thing nice about the 2 fondues, was that it came in a nice looking pot with a single tealight. Would you rather have a nice looking layout or yewl tasting food?

Chicken Tikka- $9 aesthetically, it looked ok, but when you dip it in the sauce, which was supposed to be mint chutney, was bad sauce. the yogurt was watery, so was the mint in it, so watered down.

Drinks - Sizzle - mix of orange lemon and strawberry puree- I didn't like the rind in it..very crude pcs.. yewl.. $14

Mango Mint- probably more suitable as a sauce - $14

Erdinger - probably the best ordered. But you can't go wrong with Erdinger - $16

Going on a Sunday is no good too, there wasn't a band.

Review: Terrible! Don't back here unless you really have nothing to do and perhaps just want a drink. No ambience. It was very distracting to see the visitors walking by.
