I was there last 2 days and it was my 2nd visit to the shop. As per previous impression, the tart taste really really nice, so I pay my second visit to the shop. BUT, the staff was rude and snobbish. I spoke Cantonese to them when ordering my food ( I would like to have 5 pieces egg tart... More

We were doing a comparison of Portuguese egg tart between the Lord Stoew's Bakery (husband) and the Margaret's Cafe e Nata (ex wife). Well we have tasted both and we definitely prefer and recommend the Lord Stoew. The egg tart Nata café serves is sub-standard, the crust is slightly harder, the taste is slightly bland and the custard is too... More

Aside from the delicious egg tarts, try their make-your-own sandwiches. They're also good. You can choose the bread type (white, wheat, etc), veggies (tomato, lettuce, etc), meat (tuna, ham, etc) and sauce (mango curry, mayonnaise, etc). One order is huge. They cut the bread into 4. and wrap it nicely so that you can make it on the go. Approximately... More

Tarts are nice but this review is of Margaret's as a whole so I'm given them 1 star. Got to admit with the rudeness of the staffs. I felt very threatened by the lady boss when I enquired which queue to queue at! Absolute disgusting behaviour! The bakers do make very nice tarts. If you're after a nice enjoyable trip... More

Not too sweet so it's going well with the lemonade. The tart itself is good but the stuff is a little like steamed-egg. I prefer another egg tart brand.

Good Pastéis de bata although a little more "eggy" than those in Belem. Highly recommend if you are in the area join in the Que (weekend took 10-15minutes only).

Firstly, the egg tarts thoroughly deserve its accolades and is well worth the wait (typically 30 minutes or more). The egg tarts are freshly baked and utterly delicious. However, if you are here for the service, you will be in for a disappointment. My suggestion, just order what you want and get out on the double! Margaret's is tucked away... More

Without doubt the best egg tart I have ever enjoyed. Ok, the place is not easy to find, the long queue to get in is moving fairly fast. The staff is friendly and try to serve as quickly as possible. Despite these grey spots, definitely worth the wait. Served warm, perfectly cooked, flaky pastry, flavourful. Definitely worth the trip. Forget... More
