Four dishes, one teh, and a juice came to 220rmb.

1) Curry fish head with rice...not your Banna Leaf version, but, the kopi tiam style. Not bad, but, the only thing missing was the pineapple. The fish head was big, enough for two people.
2) Laksa was nice, lemak,but, cannot compare to Katong laksa. No cockles....SIGH....
3) Sambal kang kong, nice
4) Fish cake, ok

Service was good. The drinks were just like that of home.
Overall, if you want Singaporean food, this place is as close as you can get.

I simply love the Laksa Yong Tau Foo. The gravy for laksa is yummy and it would be nicer if it is spicier.. Sambal fish-cake is just so-so. I fell in love with the laksa and it is a great place for some Asian food, the price is a bit steep for a 'kopitiam' ambience.

Food is great, kids love the sandwiches and fries and grown-ups can be more adventurous. Everyone raves about the pandan cake, but truthfully, I don't get it.

Went there two weeks ago with Singaporian friends and I must say its something different in the heart of Beijing. The restaurant is located accross Canadian embassy.
The atmostphere is like where local Singaporian would go. The food is pretty authentic and the place is decorated with pictures of Singapore past.
