Recommended for its cheap set meals

After nearly a decade of not coming here, I came back again and the price of the set meals remain as ridiculous as ever- ridiculously cheap. Apparently they are going to move out soon because the developer is going to use that plot of land for other purposes.

On a weekend, the lunch crowd was pretty decent although I heard that it can get really crowded on the weekdays. Lots of interesting posters on the wall.

Starting from $8.80, you can get yourself a soup with garlic bread, a main course, coffee/tea and dessert.

The garlic bread was crispy but the soup tasted pretty much out of the can.

I ordered a Grilled chicken with mushroom sauce ($8.80 for set). Two big pieces of grilled chicken accompanied with some long beans and mashed potato.

The food here is not worth raving about. But at least the food is edible and will fill you up well. If you are looking for somewhere with an interesting restaurant setting, good service, decent-enough food, music like 'Uptown Girl', cheap set meals and food that makes you full, here's the place. It's worth your every dollar.

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.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
