Thought would like to have an American meal. First time there. Really not impressed. Two of us took the set. Soup (Veg) of the day was really bad, it was like they are running out of soup so they dilute what ever remain in the kitchen. Main was so so. My beef steak was okay, like any other average restaurant.... More

Looking at all the other reviews, it seems it used to be much better but being a traveller who comes from time to time, overall I find the place to be good, good serving time, good portion and the price is good as well. Depending on which outlet you eat, you'll probably not find a better type of food serving... More

The waiter even put a bit of rice in my soup to make my stomach fuller. Very thoughtful of the chef and the waiter. That is a memorable experience I have for Botak Jones in Woodlands.

I've been visiting Balestier Branch for years and about 3 times a month. On each visit, I'm always offered complimentary soups. Recently there was a 'change' in management. On my recent few visits (between June to July) I was offered a 20% off my bill. The Following visit I was given 10% (starting to scratch my head) ... on my... More

Food is tasty and portion is big (as an American plate). However, had too much fries and wasted a lot of it. Birds were attacking it. Unless you are person who loves your potato and carbs, I would recommend sharing. :)

Pricey and small in servings, compared to its peers. Food also nothing to shout about. Used to be good but its competitors have all over-taken.

Hey, you used to be my fav neighbourhood eatery. When I came back today, I was jarred by the absence of that usual cosy atmosphere. Next, I noticed with some regret that the white table paper covers and kids-safe crayons were gone. Pity, they were the reason this place stuck to my mind and why I recommended my many family...

I used to like the food and service. My favourite was the fish & chips and the chocolate milkshake was the best I've had in SG. I was just in the newly renovated, again, Balestier premises, and apparently along with the downsized menu, no milkshake, they have downgraded their service. I walked in today, a Tue, at about 5-7mins before... More
