“Good food, decent prices”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

My family & I went to Kilo to celebrate my brother’s birthday. The reservation was made a day ahead via email since the place only opens at 6pm. However, they were quick to respond even I had to increase the number of guests to 8.

This was my second visit & based on experience, reservation is a must if you are really keen to dine here. The crowd started streaming in after 7. We saw a group of about 6-8 people coming without reservations & they had to leave disappointed.

For starters to share we had the salmon sushi which was stuffed with crispy chicken skin & RAW’s seafood ceviche. We were licking off the dressing for the ceviche. Both were so appetizing that we were wishing the portions were bigger. The chilli-line spicy pork salad was indeed spicy. Chilli padi was used in the mix. There was more pork than rockets. It was another yummy starter.

For the mains, some of us had starters. There was no beef shortribs that day. However, we were recommended to try the riblets instead. Despite it being listed as a starter, it was suitable for a main dish. The tender meat literally fell off the bone. Some of us also had seared scallops in mushroom sauce. It was served in a cream white wine sauce that was slightly sweet on its own. The sweetness was balanced out by the natural flavours of the scallops & mushrooms.

The 12 hour pork belly was a generous portion by my standards & I shared mine. The meat was tender & juicy. Instead of a mash, there were purple wedges. It went deliciously well with the sour cream. The tenderloin was moist & pink. The quinoa was slightly sweet on its own. But it was served with roasted pumpkin & goat’s cheese. The cheese helped unsweetened the quinoa. The pizza was perfectly thin crusted & could be easily shared between 2-3 people.
We tried the lava cake with red apple & carrot ice cream. The ice cream was orangey & was more carroty than expected. However, mix that with some of the molten chocolate, perfect. The staff volunteered to put a candle on the cake since there was a birthday being celebrated.

The place had a very chill out vibe. Not too many tables to over crowd the place. But because of all the concrete, it can get a little noisy. On the whole we enjoyed dinner. We spent about S$360 altogether. I definitely recommend this place for the food.

“Very modern, excellent food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

The starters were for sharing, there were 4 of us so we tried most, all were excellent. We then shared 3 mains, the duck was my favourite , the pork belly coming in a close second. Managed to fit in Lemon Lime Tarts 2 per serve , this too excellent. Restaurant also BYO wine.

“Great food and special location.”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Take a taxi or you may not find it. it's worth the detour. We ended up having only their appetizers - they were SO good! And we enjoyed the open setting without the usual chilly a/c found everywhere in Singapore.

“a little food heaven on earth...”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Cosy and relax ambience - breezy despite not having aircon. Food is awesome - tasty & unique. We have the tuna tartare, day & night braised pork and chocolate lave for dessert. One of my friends is vegetarian, the chef made a vegetarian pasta for her and it is heavenly....the staff are very friendly and helpfu.
