Although I've been to Bukit Timah Plaza before, this was my first time seeing (and eating at) this place. The ambience is good, it feels a little old-school, with the mis-matched cutlery and dim lighting. The service was a little sullen.
For our party of 4, we had the curry chicken, the kailan with oyster sauce, ox-tail stew + set, and the pan-fried fish and chips. The first and second were your standard hawker-style fare, so they weren't exactly worth the price.
The ox-tail was occasionally tender, and came with a somewhat generous side of steamed vegetables. The set included tea/coffee, the soup of the day, which was cream of mushroom, and the most petite dessert I've ever seen, which was pulot hitam with ice cream on top (called 'Black Glory'). The soup probably came from a can, and was laden with sodium, but the dessert was pretty good.
As for the pan fried fish and chips, I had to wait quite long for it, and even then it was hardly worth the wait. The fish, having been butterflyed, was dry and over-cooked, and was hardly seasoned. The fries were also not seasoned, so salt was needed. The accompanying side of coleslaw and salad was quite decent, however.
Perhaps we ordered the wrong things, or we came on a bad day, but I wouldn't whole-heartedly recommend this place.
