Seriously alright

Who would have ever thought that I could find a pretty good restaurant in this dumpy little shopping mall called the Yaya Center. Yet, with renovations opening up a second floor, the Sierra Brasserie is a serious contender for a place that offers a pleasant, subdued ambiance. The service staff are... read more

What I love about the Sierra Brasserie is the consistency of the quality of food, never disappointing! This is a place where you can hang out with friends and hear one another. However the one thing that is disappointing is the service; waiters talking to you like they are doing you a favour. Our waiter was a tall guy who... More

Did birthday dinner there on a Saturday. The reservation process was easy with very helpful staff. The ambience is very relaxed and everything looks nice. The downstairs bar area is ideal for small groups (max 10 pax so book and confirm early). The service was a bit slow despite it not being a packed night. Probably the pricate function they... More

Nice and classy place on top of Yaya Center. Service is great, with service oriented and happy staff. Their homebrew beer from the tap is great. The meat was awesome. Great quality steak, perfectly grilled. Will really go back as soon as I get the change.

We went to Sierra for a quick meal. We first sat in the burger area which is located on their lower floor but we asked to move up because of the greasy smoke coming from the open kitchen grill. We chose a table in the open space restaurant. It looks like it has been designed to feel cosy and lounge... More

If there's one place I will applaud for consistency in food, this is it. I've been here a couple of times and each experience was nothing short of amazing. My family and I came here for my graduation lunch and we weren't disappointed. All their meals are good particularly the grilled chicken in saffron velouté, zucchini and aubergine and the... More

This restaurant sits on 2 levels. I was meeting a friend for a late lunch on a weekday and the atmosphere was quite tranquil. Sierra has different menus for lunch and dinner complete with different pricing. It's generally pricey and while the portions are meagre owing to its fine dining niche, the superior culinary outputs make up for this. The... More
