“Great for the rugby but don't order the mussels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

I really wanted to love this place as a kiwi living in singapore. We went to watch the rugby and its a great place for that with a good selection of nz beers. Saw the mussels on the menu and was hoping for something that resembled the pots of mussels. Menu said mussels sautéed in vine ripened tomatoes with ...... What I got appeared to be mussels with puréed tomatoes dumped on the top after the mussels had been cooked. Very disappointing for the price. I might have been generous with the rating but I found the service really good

“Poor value for money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

We shared a seafood starter, had a main and a pint of beer each and the bill was nearly $200 dollars. The scallop starter tasted good. The mains were pretty bad. My oven baked cod was horribly over-cooked and served with a sweet fruity sauce. My other half's steak was under seasoned and still cold in the middle. Sides were a microwaved disappointment and were served without serving spoons. Truly awful value for money. Better off at wine connection down the road or paying a bit more at one of the Japanese steak houses nearby.

“Good food, let down by the service and atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Food was very good and seemed a little out of place in the bar area where we were seated. The upstairs restaurant was closed but the menu was available in the downstairs bar. Being a Monday night, it was fairly quiet in terms of people but the music playing from the loudspeakers made conversation difficult. There were plenty of staff on duty - but it was extremely difficult to get anyone's attention for some reason. A problem faced by a few other tables too.

“Excellent food and good kiwi beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

As a kiwi in Singapore I miss my country and Fern and Kiwi gives me a bit of this each time I visit - great tap beers and awesome food - love the ribs!
It is a pity the NZ staff went home as it has started to go downhill with typical local service - I hope this does not become a trend - get some more kiwis in there guys!!!

“Awful service, food not much better..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A Monday evening, few people in the restaurant and the wait staff could not seem to get anything right. Simple order 2 x 4 rib meals with 2 coleslaws became 2 X 6 ribs and 1 coleslaw. Ribs were cold, rather bland, one dimensional and a bit chewy. Coleslaw was OK but more like a cabbage salad. Pretty average stuff. Not returning.
