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.

We went to the Tao Yuan at the Greenbelt 3 Mall in Makati. Very nice, classy decor. 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

My fiancee and I have been here twice and it will become our regular local restaurant when we stay at the nearby Pan Pacific Hotel. 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

Entertained friends in this Restaurant. Had Hainanese Chicken, Chili Crab, Fish with mango sauce, spinach seafood soup and cold cuts. The chicken was best with the famous hainanese rise, and the crab was great. The Malate branch where we ate had the most authentic taste of Singapore.
