too much chips

Food is tasty and portion is big (as an American plate). However, had too much fries and wasted a lot of it. Birds were attacking it. Unless you are person who loves your potato and carbs, I would recommend sharing. :)

Pricey and small in servings, compared to its peers. Food also nothing to shout about. Used to be good but its competitors have all over-taken.

Hey, you used to be my fav neighbourhood eatery. When I came back today, I was jarred by the absence of that usual cosy atmosphere. Next, I noticed with some regret that the white table paper covers and kids-safe crayons were gone. Pity, they were the reason this place stuck to my mind and why I recommended my many family...

I used to like the food and service. My favourite was the fish & chips and the chocolate milkshake was the best I've had in SG. I was just in the newly renovated, again, Balestier premises, and apparently along with the downsized menu, no milkshake, they have downgraded their service. I walked in today, a Tue, at about 5-7mins before... More

Breakfast sounded great. Yipee - Sunday brunch!! Went this past Sunday about 10.30 - only three other tables occupied (8 to 10 people total max). After 35 - 40 minutes waiting with no breakfast in sight, I left. Also, watching other tables being served, each and every person got their meals about 5 minutes apart. While I live in Thailand,...

We are so happy to see this restaurant situated in the famous eatery street in Balestier. So after visiting a relative there, we head towards this famous Botak Jones which we used to patronize the clementi branch. We introduced it to my eldest sister and waited for a table. The restaurant was fully packed and thinking it must be good.... More

Decent choice for some cheap western food (much better than standard food court Western). Steaks were good cooked well and far cheaper than can be found any where else on the island. Potato with mash and cheese is a great side all for $15-$20 for 200-300gr steaks.
