“Excellent lunch, best service in Singapore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I had a watermelon/tomato salad with goat cheese which was *beautifully* presented. I then had the chili crab which was spicy and wonderful. The service was outstanding. I loved it!

“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Visiting the Botanical Garden in Singapore was high on our list of things to do on our recent trip. We wanted to eat lunch while we were out, so we decided to combine efforts and eat at Halia. I admit that we were not thrilled about the prices as we looked at the menu, but we were hungry and didn't want to have to find another option so we decided to stay. "Wow" is all I can say about our food....it was absolutely delicious and it was one of our favorite meals! The Chili Crab Pasta was amazing!!

“Good food, great ambience, prices on the higher side”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Had a nice celebration dinner at Halia with a group of friends and it was a very pleasant experience.

We sat outside, the weather was not too hot or humid and the greenery surrounding us contributed to a beautiful ambience.

Even though I did find the prices a little on the higher end of the spectrum, the food was tasty. The staff were very professional and polite.

I will be going back again to try out their brunch menu.

“Birthday Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Went to Halia on the afternoon 19th October for a lazy brunch. Reservation ws made with Mr Faizal and i was served by Ms Sarah upon arrival. Food was just as good as the first time i was there. I was sunsequently given utmost attention by Dennis and Nur. They were most polite and with never ending smiles.

The brunch ended with a very special Ice Cream treat by the staffs of Halia and a birthday song. I want to thank Faizal, Sarah, Nor and Dennis for all that they had done for me.

“Lovely brunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

After a late arrival from the UK the night before we slept late and missed breakfast! Eager not to waste any more time we set off for the Botanic Gardens and found Halia, what a lovely find it was. As it was a public holiday they were serving the brunch menu which was perfect for us, we sat inside in the aircon room, were served by polite and attentive staff, good menu choice, on the expensive side but worth every cent as it was beautifully presented and tasted just as good. We all ordered two items, the waitress did suggest a half size of the one of the dishes as it was very large, we were grateful for that as it would have been too much (we were accordingly charged half price for that dish too)
Would definitely recommend for brunch and would try again if in Singapore again.
