A cosy place for dinner

Tug on the 4th floor of CK Tang, this place has a nice ambience and is not usually packed. The place is decorated with alot of wood with nice spot lights here and there giving you a very homely and warmth feel. Prices may be slightly expensive for local food but the food is well cooked and the... read more

A lovely place for a fete-a-tete and nice selection of local delights. The surrounds if you can get a window seat is full of greenery and one could imagine being in a conservatory for lunch or dinner. I love this place and use it quite a lot especially when I have overseas visitors. It's so convenient to either shop before... More

Lunar New Year is around the corner, I was with colleague eating dinner here. Lou Hei at the Island Cafe is about $38++ which is rather expensive for a simple dish. The salmon was fresh but the sauce was too sweet. Disappointing dinner here, Indonesia Fried Rice was so so Pork Chop Rice was salty Crayfish Laksa sauce was too... More

Nestled on the top floor of CK Tangs. location - centrally plonked at CK Tangs, carpark is a breeze everywhere. staff - friendly as most of CK Tangs staff. crowd - couples / friends verdict - it's quite good and there are choices for the...

I have been eating at this place since I was a child. I take my overseas guests there almost all the time because it has a good selection of both western and local favourites at good prices and excellent quality. My personal favourite dish there is Crayfish Laksa. The gravy is superb! But it is a large portion, so you... More

$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.

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
