“Food steadily going down hill”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

A lot of bought in and reheated food. Tart cases straight from the shop, awful soup badly made, salad ends served instead of thrown away.

Far better options for food, but ambience is relaxing.

“Crab Cakes, Portobello Mushroom”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Firstly, I think Ablerta33 review is Totally WRONG restaurant - they don't sell curry for sure or ramen or somen.

I just love this restaurant's ambience and relaxed mode. Had dinner last night and was blown away by their Sante Fe Crab Cakes with Habenaro Tartar sauce, it was SO DELICIOUS. We had the Portobello Mushroom with Crabmeat topping grilled with Cheese and it was heavenly.

We ordered two types of pasta - the shrimp pasta done alio oglio style was so good and the beef Fajitas was sizzling - had a lovely Ang mo Poh Piah.
The Beef Quesadilla had juicy beef and was nicely done.

DESSERT - Chocolate Lava Torte (to die for), it is almost orgasmic especially with a nice Irish Coffee.

What a wonderful place of comfort - the dishes remain good and the baby back ribs were just as delicious as the last time I visited.

If you want consistency and great service and food, I highly recommend this place.

“Very good value set lunches, easily accessible.”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Have been here a number of times for their set lunches. Hits the sweet spot for value/quality. Starter, Main and Dessert with coffee and tea for under $30 per person. I usually have the ribeye main, which is juicy and flavourful. Nice relaxed ambience. Parking is easy and the Buona Vista MRT station is just a short walk away.

“Delicous Baby Back Ribs”

We ordered Bar Food and we had the mini burgers - absolutely delicious esp with Jalapenos. The Baby Back Ribs with garlic mash potato and it was so yummy that we had to order one more. Chili Dusted Fries were also delcious and great bar food menu. Calamari, mini burgers and pizzas were great.
Must try, stuffed Jalapeno, mini burgers and Baby Back Ribs.

“Nice Atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

I went here for a business lunch and they seated about 25 of us at two tables outside. It has a very nice atmosphere and even though it was hot outside, they had several strategically placed fans and so it was cool.

We had preordered our food beforehand so the service was very efficient. We had three courses, salad, soup and a main and overall it was very good.

Parking is plentiful and there is a lot right beside the restaurant.
