What happened to Ban Heng?!

My friends and I came here to Lo-hei for pre- Chinese New Year dinner. We ordered : 1. Yusheng 2. Four Seasons long beans 3. Pork ribs 4. Oyster Omelette 5. Braised goose. Other than the passable Yusheng, the rest of the dishes were completely appalling, and an insult to Teochew cuisine. Ban... read more

We celebrated a family's niece 21st birthday dinner here. The place looks ok but that is about the only thing good about this restaurant. This being an ala carte buffet, we placed our orders as usual. We had 5 tables. Various food that were ordered by all 5 tables during our 2.5 hours there - either came partially ( rest... More

I had ban this restaurant with the bad attitude of the waitress. Last Saturday 20/12/2014 , I attended a wedding dinner with my parents-in-law . The waitress know that we're Malaysian and the way she talk with us was rude. Yes, we're Malaysian. But we also spend our money in the restaurant too. VERY VERY BAD SERVICE!

20 adults. Business gathering. Dinner on 9Sept 2014. Total amount we were robbed of = S$741 Service is cold and robotic without finesse. What one would get at a coffeeshop choking on its vomit as it goes through its death throes. Food was barely bearable, a terrible let-down .... from a restaurant group that touts itself as a 'veteran of... More

Nothing feels authentic without experiencing what the locals do. Chilli Crab, Chicken Rice, and Kway Teow may be Singapore's most well known dishes, but locals always have their own secret. Learning from a local friend, Ban Heng, decades old Teo Chew restaurant well regarded by Singaporeans, offers a unique Cold Crab Dish. It is genuinely fresh, and by the gracious... More

Service was unbelievably bad. To top it off, they forgot our order and refused to takeaway the forgotten order for us even though we had already paid.

Restuarant seemed overly large for the patrons, hard to say if they were in renovation or new fit out. Staff pleasant but bit language barrier. Charged for the disposable hand towels & rice crackers on table (not complimentary) ordered 4 dishes to share but they came out one at a time, maybe thats how its supposed to be. limited wine...

Service was a little slow at the beginning however it speeded up midway. Food was surprisingly tasty after reading all the negative comments. We ordered the 8 course set reunion dinner and portion was big. We left the place a FILLED & HAPPY family. Huat Ar!! 😉😉

We visited as a group of around 15 to try out their dinner buffet, priced at around $35 inclusive of all the taxes and everything. There is basically a set menu that you can only order once, plus a menu in which you get unlimited orders. The food was disappointing (for the price), and the service was efficient but not... More

From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
