“New Chef, got it right”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Third time lucky- I went here for a work lunch and they have come a long way. The portions are decent for lunchtime and the choice and quality is good. They have a new chef. He's introducing more new items to menu and a friendly person. It took a while to get attention for bill so if in rush keep it in mind. They are all friendly so maybe a staffing issue. Above all a great improvement and well deserved for a great location outside the a.c. of office blocks and in amongst the green of the Botanics. Worth a trip under the new chef.

“An Oasis of excellence”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

What a lovely restaurant. Location, food, service & staff excellent. Made to feel very welcome. Use of mr & ms Paul & Caroline was a lovely touch and made us feel familiar & cared for. The food was delicious - the oysters were gorgeous.

If you want a romantic dinner for 2 or a special family celebration this is the place to go.

We will be back again. I quite fancy the brunch.

“wonderful for birthday celebrations”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

amazing place for great food. the service was impeccable. my lamb steak came a little late and the staff promptly served me a salad as a form of apology. very good atmosphere. my only gripe would be that it was quite difficult to get to the place. especially at night, as there were very little signs leading to the restaurant.

had a great experience though! (:

“Delicious, great service & beautiful location”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

We had lunch here after visiting the Orchard garden. The food was delicious and service was fabulous. We sat in the outdoor verandah, which is covered and offers a beautiful view of the gardens. A brief storm came through, which added to the atmosphere and we stayed very dry on the verandah and enjoyed watching the rain. Staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. Any extra charges for certain meal selections were written on the menu and explained by staff before taking the order. The Singapore sling cocktail was superb and well worth the price, wines are very good quality and food well presented. Would highly recommend lunch here, you can stick to the set menu and keep the price low or indulge and try the cocktails and other menu selections.

“Nice setting, good for visitors.”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Halia is located inside the Botanical Gardens. We went there for high tea. The high tea is of good selections and variety, the taste is average and comparable to many of the other high teas offered in other Singapore locations. This is a place to bring visitors who have come to Singapore and would be a wonderful add onafter a walk through the Botanic gardens. Nice atmosphere but nothing spectacular for the food/service itself.
