We went for dinner last night upon recommendation from a gentleman my husband is working with. 10 minute wait but they take your order in line so when you sit the food comes right away. It was delicious, like crock pot roast. I had the same thing for lunch at a hawker stall in Chinatown though and it was just... More

We have to wait for around 10minutes to be seated.. the restaurant i see was always full.. we ordered bak kut teh, fish and veggie. All very nice and very fast served. You can ask for the free refill for the soup. The soup for me is a bit spicy, they have too much pepper in it.. but overall, it... More

Long lines during peak meal times so be prepared to wait. We sometimes intentionally avoid peak time but then they run out of the premium pork ribs fast. Apart from pork ribs soup I recommend the boiled ground nuts and pickled vegetables.

This is the best bak kut teh I've ever had. We went for a late lunch (around 2pm) and there was no line - we were quickly ushered to our seats and ordered. The food was delicious and the service was quite friendly and efficient (unlike a lot of other places). It was a quick walk from Clarke Quay MRT,... More

There are two types of bak kut teh. The clear soup and the dark soup. This place serves the clear soup bak kut teh with pepper soup. Deliciousness. ... Place always packed during lunch and dinner. But don't know how office workers can eat there during lunch ad it's pretty warm, especially with the boiling hot soup in the Claypots... More

One of the best Bak Kut Teh shops in Singapore. Tasty ribs with great soup will attract you to come once again. Set meal is the best to complete meal (rice, soup, ribs, fried veggie). Price is about the same with other Bak Kut Teh shops. Worth for money. But this shop is almost every time crowded especially in the... More

The soup is quite salty. Many people think it is delicious. Well, basically it is a simple soup by putting some ribs and herbs together. It is originated from Chinese labour. They had harsh life and looked for something for their health. At that time, they only had some local herbs and ribs that were of low price. They boiled... More

Song Fa Bak Kut Teh is a very hectic restaurant. Located across Clarke Quay MRT. You can only eat there, no time for chit chat or hang around with friends in the restaurant, because the people in queue line will staring at you. The Bak Kut Teh is very delicious, you can choose what kind of pork meat you want... More
