I would like to share my experience with Toots Brasserie. My fiancee and me spotted the restaurant 2 weeks ago when we casually have our Sunday walk around hotel sultan. Despite we already have lunch, my fiancee decided to walk in after seeing the menu outside the hotel. The chef , Jason, is very friendly, approaching us, and explain the menu,and offer us to make reservation anytime. Good first impression. He explain that people normally hesitate to go in, since it's a french restaurant, inside a hotel some more, but we're surprised that it's very affordable.
We decide to come back a week after, (my fiancee made reservation,) and both of us ordered Duck leg confit. While waiting , we were served bread and butter, and Jason introduced himself to us, and explain the menu. He even serve a small sample of duck rillet, which is very nice of him , for us while waiting the food.
The food is awesome, i totally enjoy the experience. What i like the most is the ambience and the mood. The music keeps playing Bossanova tunes and the dimmed lighting create a suitable mood. After the main course we decide to order Profiteroles au Chocolat : Homemade baked choux pastry with vanilla ice cream, roasted almond flakes and chocolate sauce.
I would like to give the food , value for money, and service two thumbs up, definitely, worth it to recommend.
Highlights were the fried scallops, crispy duck leg confit and beef cheeks. Will definitely visit again!

A french-themed restaurant, Toots Brasseries offers an affordable three course meal at $18++. Beautifully furnished, Toots Brasserie's charming interior is the perfect place for a romantic date. The cosy environment feels reassuring, making one settled and ready for a good meal.
For appetizers, the Pan-seared Frog Legs ($12.8) seasoned with homemade garlic butter is extremely tender and falls apart gently while chewing. Decorated with tomato and fresh herbs, whose aromatic properties lightens up the taste of the garlic butter perfectly.
For mains, the Beef Cheek Bourguignon ($26.8) as expected was fork-tender and well marinated. The sweetness in the marinade blends in perfectly with the meat, leaving an aromatic aftertaste in the mouth. Served with braised roots vegetable, parsley potatoes at the sides, this dish is extremely satisfying and filling.
For desserts, Homemade cake infused with mixed berry compote and served with Madagascan vanilla pods ice cream, the meal is completed with a sweet ending.
This place is nestled cosily smack in the centre of the busy crowded street. When u step in, a warm cosy atmosphere greets u. The chef himself will come out of the kitchen now and then to talk with u and make u feel at home. Pay attention to his recommendations, we didnt regret it one bit when we tried the duck suggested we were blown away.
A must try if u are in the area!
