$6 SGD for 2 fresh prawns set among in dark yellow noodles. I think the environment was really clean and I enjoyed the food too.

Interesting to find the cafe tucked in the Tangs shopping mall. Setting of the cafe is comfortable. Quite a good range of local food. The food quality, portion and presentation was good. I had hainanese chicken rice with Moroccan mint tea. I had especially enjoyed the tea. We also shared a platter with spring rolls, fried wanton, satay and fried... More

Did not disappoint. Best laksa, hainanese chicken was great, so was the crayfish fried rice. Nice location beside Lucky plaza. Staff were very courteous and helpful. Two thumbs up.

Liked this place a lot. Service was reasonably fast, decor pleasant and staff helpful. Food was good quality and tasty. Nice place to rest from the heat. We ordered asian platter (satay skewers, spring rolls, won tons & chikn wings) and a crayfish fried rice. Soft drinks reasonable at SIN$3...

I had to wait until I could check into my Orchard Road hotel so I visited Island Cafe in Tangs as I wanted somewhere quiet for lunch. Staff were attentive and I had a lovely Cranberry Cooler drink, plus cold water was provided free of charge. I ordered the chicken curry biryani rice. The plate of rice, pickles and prawn... More

We were brought here by a colleague. The lychee mojitos weren't good. The starters of satay and fried tofu was ok. Most of us had the laksa and a local colleague found the tofu sour, which meant past the expiry date. Our american friends unknowingly had most of it and ended with diarrhoea that night. Never again

I have eaten here a number of times on various trips and enjoy the food- main courses as well as desserts and drinks- but service seems to be mostly trainees and their English pronunciation is at times hard to understand- but Overall a comfortable place with good food at an ok price.

Situated at top level of Tangs, quiet and secluded from shopping district downstairs. Food offering is plain simple and usual local dishes. Pricey for the quality and quantity offered.

With aching feet, I hesitantly found my way into Island Cafe in Tang. Ordered the Indonesian fried rice which was a whole meal by itself. Portion was good. Taste was good. Spice level was adjusted for tourists. Overall, quite a good experience. Ice water was topped up every time I finished the whole glass. The heat in Singapore can dehydrate... More

My wife and I were looking at the Christmas decorations for sale on the 4th floor of Tang's, and we decided to try the small but inviting Island Cafe on the same floor. It was raining heavily at the time, and we were hungry. We guessed that Tang's would ensure that high quality food was available for their in-store restaurant,... More
