I ordered from here via Sherpa's, and was quite disappointed. Got the roasted vegetable salad with added chicken, and the spicy German sausage soup. The salad was just okay, the vegetables were eggplant, a few pieces of tomato and green pepper, no pumpkin. It was very soggy and bland. The chicken that came with it was very chewy and dry, and tasted like precooked frozen chicken that had been reheated. The "German sausage" in the soup looked and tasted exactly like a hot dog. I've also tried their chicken noodle soup before, about a couple weeks ago. It was just okay, not very flavorful. Maybe the quality is better if you are eating at the actual restaurant, but what I've had so far was not good at all and I would not order from here again.

On A dull showery day, this little place in a charming street was a perfect find for simple and delicious chicken soup that you would expect to be made by English chefs. The menu was comprehensive and an a great alternative to Asian food that a Westerner might tire from.

I had the privilege of eating at Urban Soup Kitchen in Madang Rd this past weekend. They claim that their mission is to make people see soup as good main meal option and make it as pleasurable as possible to eat. All I can say is Mission Accomplished! I had a salad and the Tomato Garlic soup... the soup was fresh, wholesome, tasty and perfectly prepared. It is actually some of the best tomato soup I have ever had! It is served with a slice of FRESH french baguette, which was really good as well. The salad wasn't too bad, but it wasn't nearly as good as the soup.

I'm definitely going to become a regular there... I'm actually planning to go again this weekend to try another soup flavour! The only negative thing about the Madang shop is that it is really small and doesn't have many tables to sit at. During the lunch time rush, you'll be hard-pressed to find a seat. I've been told that the new branch in Kangding Rd is larger, so I might go there this weekend to check it out.

Apart from soups and salads, they also have a selection of sandwiches, pastas and some side dishes. I must admit, all the other dishes I saw looked really tasty. I think everyone will be able to find something that suits their taste on the menu. The prices are also extremely reasonable, so it is great value for money!
