The food was great. There is not too much of a variety for you to chose, but the mutton or beef is very good. Curry chicken was quite normal, but the curry is REALLY good. Main dishes are curry or rendang. No "light" food like streamed staff here.
Service is great and the response is fast. Very time you ask for a refill of curry sauce, they are quite to get you one with a smile.
The chendol is too sweet for me thou....
Price is reasonable and not expensive for a restuarant.
A good place to consider for Nasi Padang.

I have been coming to this Nasi Padang (Malay) restaurant for about 10 years when it was first in the Rendezvous hotel and now in The Central mall by Clarke Quay. Not cheap for local standards however I would come back every time just for the beef rendang. Wonderful curry sauce.

I love the food found in this restaurant. My wife and I looked for it in the original location but were informed the restaurant had moved to the Central Mall on Clarke Quay. When I first ate at this place the shop was non-air conditioned, and almost like the old coffee shops which only the older generation will understand and were familiar with. The original shop had bamboo blinds to block out the sun, with advertisements on the blinds.

The food is still very good for what it is, food from Padang in Sumatra. The beef rending and the chicken curry are still signature dishes. Whilst the shop itself has moved twice from it's original location, the look and feel of the place now hasn't varied much.

What has changed, of course are the prices, and you know which way that has gone. There are alternatives in Singapore but it remains still one of my favourites as it is very pleasantly laid out, clean and comfortable, and now, there is a view of the river.

On our way to Indonesia we had a stopover in Singapore and found this place to give the kids their first taste of Indonesian food. It was really nice, fragrant and well prepared. You choose your dishes at the counter and everything will be prepared and served. Highchairs available and kids are welcome and fussed over.

We tend to get drawn back to Rendezvous Hock Lock Kee Restaurant for lunch every time we are back in Singapore. Old-style service and staff @ relaxed pace. Pick your dishes from the counter bar and you get served at your table later. Love the Sambal Prawns, Korma Chicken and refreshing cucumber salad. Its location is a bit awkward to locate, take the glass lift near the reception. Big lunch (soup, rice, dessert, etc..see photo) plus drinks for a couple was S$90+.
