Back to Leo Cafe after a long absence. The authentic taste still lingers! All time favourite, "Signature Kampong Fried Rice". The shallots, spiciness, mixed with the fragrance from the chicken gets me going. Ended up finish the whole plate. Had an enjoyable and cozy evening with friends and beer! An excellent place to chill out!

Leo provides high quality food with a smile and a good price. The service is fantastic and the food even better. The only reason the costs are good is the proximity to the cbd. Otherwise Leo would be justified in charging more. It is only a 10min commute from the cbd including walking time so it's easy to get there... More

The place is so close from my hotel. The area is vintage feel like dinner in 60's. Even the lamp decoration in the tree palm so unsure but still OK. The food is recommended especially for SEA taste. The price is nice also. Sorry I just can upload empty plate coz I'm very hungry and forget to take a picture... More

After going thru TripAdvisor ratings we decided to have dinner here and try something local other than regular Indian meals. But what we got couldn't satisfy our taste buds. We realized our mistake of limiting chef creativity by our pure veg demand.

Enigmatic because when ur in front of a small shop with 10 sitting table and chair and an old man coming near you and softly saying you are in front of best Singapore cafe restaurant believe me he is not joking. Service is outstanding and so is his kindness. A family of 3 with an infant giggling and moving around... More

This average priced cafe certainly does not have average food. The most accommodating Leo ensured that our children were happy with the level of chilli, ensuring that they were able to sample some delicious curries rather than resorting to a Western menu choice. We had the Beef Opur and the Mutton Curry and both were flavoursome and fresh. We also... More

Greatest food ever. Right in Albert Court, great service from both the owner and his staff. Try the PrawnGambero and the Malaysian Beef. It's outdoors, umbrellas to protect you from the sun and a great vibe

I had the oxtail Soup, then the Dory served on a hot plate. All served in a great atmosphere, lots of hustle & bustle. Leo was always there, helping with photos and the like.

LEO , the owner ,is there to greet and seat you. His daughter, Vicki, is the chef. I had the best fried rice I have had in Singapore at Leo's. The sweet and sour chicken, by which I judge chinese cuisine the world over, is absolutely great here. Second only to London's china town, as I told Leo.
