Ambience: Acceptable. Located within easy walking distance of Novena MRT. Small, but serviceable toilet.
Food: Above Average
All main courses come with free garlic bread.
Garlic bread: Poor. One of the bread was way too crispy while the other wasn’t. Shows poor quality control since no consistency.
Lobster with BBQ Pork Ribs ($20.80++) Same price for all half-lobster combos.
Lobster: Below average. The lobster was rather bland. I believe that it may have been prepared in a simple fashion, with steaming. Perhaps others may prefer it this way. I do not. Actually, I don’t think that lobster is really worth the money as they are usually quite small, tastes like prawn and is very expensive. But still. It is usually the signature dish of restaurants and can serve as a quality indicator.
BBQ Pork Ribs: Poor. Slightly tough and certainly does not “melt off the bones”.
French fries: Terrible. A lot worse than McDonald fries. Basically, no skill whatsoever.
Mashed potato: Acceptable. Normal taste. Not good.
BBQ Sirloin Steak with Chicken ($16.20++)
Steak: Good. Medium. Juicy and tasty. Had a bit of connective tissue though. Still, pretty good for a cheap cut.
Chicken: Above average. Decent.
Baked potato: Acceptable. Normal.
Mashed Potato: As per above.
Value: Good. Above average food but cheap prices.
Service: Good. Warm and efficient service. Had language barriers with one of the service staff though.
Overall: Good. Good value and decent food. Unfortunately, food isn’t quite good enough for you to trek there especially from the other side of the island just for it. But for a nice comfortable dining experience, this is all right.
