This restaurant has been open since 1982 which says something about the quality. I stopped in for a takeout lunch and the staff were friendly. I ordered the Satay Tofu dish as I have been trying out vegetarianism and I found it pretty good. I might have got them to spice it up a little too much . Most dishes... More

Been going here for 15+ years. Best Peanut sauce in the world! Their curry shrimp and chicken is also fantastic.

A nice family run restaurant. The food is excellent. The chicken with cilantro as well as the singapore fried noodles. The hot and sour soup is also tasty.

I've been visited the country of Singapore many times. I expect there is chicken rice at this Singapore restaurant. I guess the name just the name. Food is just ok, just something different but I am not crazy about it

Hadn't been to the Singapore in about 4 or 5 years. Remarkably the same waiter and owner were around (after decades.) (still friendly). My coworkers got the laksa, as is usually the case. I have never tried it yet. I got a curry dish - not exactly what I was expecting but it was ok. I should have chosen something... More

Tasty Malaysian cuisine a mix of Chinese, Malay. Lots of spices and curry. I've been eating there (and getting takeout) for years. Very tasy food, friendly service.

My co-workers and I have been eating here for many years, and it is one of my favourite Asian restaurants in Ottawa. ever since my colleagues first brought me here years ago, before the restaurant even moved to the current location. It is hidden away in a little building across from the Coliseum cinemas and would be easy to miss... More

The service was excellent, thank you Andrew. While the food was good, the atmosphere needs serious work. Cost vs quality was a little on the high side but acceptable. Not sure I'd come back because so many other places serve similar dishes with much better atmosphere! But worth a first try no doubt about it.

I have been going to this restaurant for about 12 years now. It is by far my favourite place to eat. It is a Malaysian style cooking which is culmination of Malay, Chinese and Indian food. Not everything is hot and spicy but I do like hot and my #1 dish is the Curry Beef hot. Their #1 seller however,... More

We haven't been here in years, but went back tonight. The food was incredibly good - we had the curry chicken with cilantro and the satay pork. Both tasty and interesting dishes. The place is utilitarian looking, but quiet and pleasant, the staff is friendly and the food stays in your memory. I can't wait to eat my leftovers.
