When you visit IKEA for your ready-to-assemble furniture, appliances, and home accessories; you would think that the company is the world's largest furniture retailer with modern architectural designs for various types of appliances and furniture, and its interior design work at lower prices! But you must also note that every IKEA store includes a restaurant serving traditional Swedish food, including potatoes with Swedish meatballs, cream sauce and lingonberry jam, although there are variations in some other country(s). In addition to this yummy meatballs there are refill tea, refill coffee and refill soft drink, condiment bar is always full and ready here in IKEA Singapore (Alexandra).
Most people (name me as one of them), visited IKEA restaurant [only] for the Swedish meatballs instead of the furniture shopping.. oops... enjoy!

We have eaten here several times and found the food tasty and affordable. It tends to get crowded on weekends. You can even get discounts and free parking with the Ikea family card!

The meatballs are nice with the jam. Love the potatoes. The chicken wings though taste normal to me is a hot favorite among guests. Crowded almost on all my trips there. Self service restaurant.

Conveniently located on Alexandra Road. Well connected by buses and trains in addition to free shuttle buses that run along designated routes on weekends. Food is good and reasonably priced for the value it provides. Queues can get long at times but food is served fairly fast.

It’s the poached salmon that I'd been eyeing, that yummy looking dish with the yellow coloured sauce. Costs 8 SD which is great for the value. The cafe closes at 10 pm, but on a busy day I'm scared they might run out of the dish I crave - so I reach early in the evening. The restaurant itself has a vibrant buzz and there’s heavy movement of men, women, children and food. See arunsikka.blogspot.sg
You pick up your tray, go along swiftly moving queue – grab a salad or dessert if you want and then in the cafeteria style counter ask for the poached salmon – a fat portion served with boiled veggies and boiled potatoes. I wait for him to pour a ladle of the yellow sauce – it’s 'chives sauce' according to the IKEA website, and it’s light and just the right thickness - over the salmon, before rushing to the payment counter and over to our table.
It’s glorious, the dish. Fresh, juicy and pink on the inside, it’s a complete meal of protein, carbs and omega 3.
Other attractions – the mushroom soup and the black coffee are also great. And then the atmosphere - there’s a vibrancy that so encourages philosophical discussions, only you must raise your voice to hear yourself.
What’s lacking? Oh, the washroom – it’s always wet, and inspite of giving repeated feedback, doesn’t match up to what you'd expect of the hygiene levels in either Singapore or Sweden.
Bottom Line - Go and eat at the Ikea cafe. Period.
