“A cool relax from the Singapore heat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Located in a corner of the famous Raffles Hotel, Ah Teng's is lovely cool place to relax from the heat of a Singapore day. A range of hot and cold drinks is offered, and a range of food, including some lovely cakes. Its an "Olde Worlde" kind of place, Bentwood chairs and tables, tiled floor, and the history of Raffles all around. Prices are not the cheapest in Singapore, but the service is good, and food is too.

“My favourite hiding place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

I love this cafe. It's a regular lunch time haunt for me. It's nice and quiet away from the hustle and bustle, and I like the decor. It reminds me of old cafes in long forgotten seaside towns in the UK! Quite formal but pleasantly serene. Service can be a little slow but they do make nice sandwiches :)

“Main Restaurant Is Not Worth The Money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

I expected more of this restaurant that is tucked away in a corner of the Raffles Hotel; but this one is trading more on it's connection to the hotel rather than on food or service.
The food was ok, small portions. Not much selection if you are a vegetarian. The menu said that the vegetable curry included rice, pickles and dahl. When it arrived, there was no dahl - and I was told "it was in the sauce". So why list it as a side when it's actually an ingredient; and in that case, might as well list the ginger, cumin and cocounut milk while you are at it... sorry, rant over.
The service was not great either - lots of staff running around, but none actually making any eye contract, and I had to ask for my bill three times.
Again - a real pity, given the history of this place. If you happen to be in the area, don't waste your money in the main dining room of Ah Teng's Bakery - a quick coffee and pastry in the bakery section would be better value, and you still get to soak up the atmosphere of old-world Singapore. And if you really do end up eating in the main dining area - then go with the Hainan Chicken Rice, which is a basic dish difficult to mess up. Fingers crossed.

“Hi Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

The tea specials and the ambience are very remniscent of a bygone era. The fare is yummy. Love the quaint crockery that the Tea and sides are served in. Nice to sit and watch the world go by, too.
