Service was attentive, friendly and efficient. Dinner was really great. Two of us had seafood, one a chicken dish, and one a meat dish. All delicious, with fresh ingredients.
Atmosphere was peaceful. It was a Sunday night and not too busy, then a group of University students from Singapore came in for dinner. ( the wait staff told us). That speaks well for the cuisine, I think. All in all a very pleasant evening.
And they have a take out menu!

I go to Merlion's about every other week. Lunch prices are a great value for freshly prepared delicious Singapore food. Dinner is nice as well.

Merlion serves unique dishes from Singapore and other regions of Southeast Asia. These dishes could be a little difficult to find unless you are in a big city. They even have a Gluten Free menu! Something that is rarely offer in other restaurants. I love the Singapore Laksa, Hainanese chicken, Ginger beef, many dishes that are with rice noodle, and almost forgot to mention the Merlion sampler is a great appetizer platter to share. The staff is very nice and helpful. We love it.

We had dinner here recently as a family and liked our experience and the food.
Food; The menu is a mix of various dishes from Asia, with a focus on Singapore. We had the Roti Parata with Chicken Curry (Excellent), the Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice (Excellent), Sizzling Tofu (Excellent). Previously we also tried the Green Curry and it was OK, a little too watery and not enough flavor. They have a decent wine and drink list.
Ambiance: Nice ambiance, well appointed. Feels like a neighborhood restaurant, cozy and comfortable.
Service: Generally good. Our waitress was a absent at times, but aimed to please when she stopped by.
Overall, this will be a restaurant we will frequent often.

Merlion is our favorite restaurant. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. It is not a chain restaurant and after a few visits, the servers will recognize you and remember your name. That's a rarity nowadays.
We try to vary our choices, but often end up with our favorites: Samosas for appetizer (although the coconut shrimp is delicious, too), and then Pad Kee Mow for my husband who likes spicy food, and Pad Thai for myself. The sweet and sour chicken is delicious, too, as is the ginger beef, the vegetarian options, etc. We're already looking forward to our next visit.
