We ordered the dinner for 2 and it was fabulous! Lots of different flavours and excellent value. The satay was great but particularly liked the sesame chicken. I'll go back.

Every time we go to Singapore for dinner we are amazed by how good the food is and how empty the restaurant is. This is a hidden gem across from the theaters at Bayshore. The food is served piping hot and is rich with flavor and variety. The owners work in the kitchen preparing food as you order it, nothing... More

This restaurant is a bit of a hidden gem. It is located just of Carling Ave on Kempster. I used to frequent the restaurant often as I worked in the area but returned just recently to find that the food was same consistent quality. It is famous for its lemon chicken and laska but I have tried many items on... More

Very small restaurant. Clean but not fancy. Owner greats when you enter. After you have been there he even remembers what you like. Prices are reasonable. If you are with a group that wants 'Chinese' food but don't particularly like it, order the lemon chicken. Nobody else comes close to this restaurant -light sauce.good portions. Everybody else seems to use... More

As always, the service is friendly, the food is very good, and the prices are reasonable. We went in for lunch and had the ever popular Laksa, a soupy curried noodle dish, and a lively conversation with Abba, the owner.

I've seen this restaurant from Richmond Road for a long time and finally got to try it. Reviews by other guests were excellent. With high hopes, we went - and ordered the Singapore noodles and the chicken with fried orange peel, which others had recommended. DISAPPOINTMENT - big time! Very little flavor. The noodles were just that ... noodles with... More

This resturant is a real hidden gem, they make the best tasting curry dish called Laska, it has chicken, egg and a spicy broth of curry. It tastes even better than the ones they serve in Malaysia, the owners are the chefs and they keep the ingredients a family secret. Everything is made from scratch with the best quality spices...

Once again, had a delicious dinner here. Not much atmosphere, but lovely, friendly service and really good food. This is a quiet place, so a good place to chat over a meal. In fact, too quiet - I'm worried that they don't get enough business to sustain them. We were there for over 3 hours on a recent Friday night,... More

Service is good, but food is the worst I have ever had. Chicken curry, not so much chicken in it. Black bean beef, beef is over done. Dishes are expensive, atmosphere not impressed. 中国人不用去试了,菜完全没法吃。

We wanted to try Singapore style food and found it here. We tried the Chicken Curry Asam and Laksa. Both were tasty with interesting flavours. Friendly service, simple décor.
