The Peking duck was simply perfect, it was so soft, flavorful & tangy! We enjoyed the seafoods as well especially the freshness of fish & shrimp. Service was excellent, the waiters are accommodating and knows every inch of details about the food they serve. A Lunch perfectly fit after our office work.

The tradiciónal boiled peanuts had a non-traditional boiled roach hidden underneath. When my wife pointed it out to the nonplussed waiter, no one came over to apologize. I felt disgusted and disappointed.

As for the food, the laksa was tasty and the Singapore sambal and vermicelli were good, but I would have preferred them spicier. The black gulaman dessert with lychee was an unusual treat. The service couldn't have been better. The waitresses and waiters... More

Though comparatively pricey, the food is delicious offering both Chinese and Singapore cuisine. Last night we tried the Lapu Lapu with mango, Singapore style, a unique take on sweet and sour. As with Filipino restaurants... More

I've had several fantastic meals here over the years, and came back recently for their Singapore Chili Crab - super delicious. Also had the chef's specialty steamed fish with mushroom and ham - very nice. Coming from the US, the prices were very reasonable (about $35 for a 700 g crab, $9 for the fish dish), food was fresh and... More
