For a slightly more common fare but undoubtedly done well - the Bhaji onion rings (which are the only onions I’ll happily eat), was well-seasoned, and the batter was so light and crisp as it should be.

One of my (many) favourites of the night would be this spit-roasted eggplant, which was smoky, soft, coated with a well-balanced sweet and tangy tamarind/ date glaze. I loved the savory addition of Parmesan cheese!

Surprisingly LOVED the non-meat dishes here which are are definitely must-orders.

The cauliflower was an umami party with spices, fragrant curry leaves and a pretty damn good tomato relish! Pretty cool that it was a whole cauliflower smoked, roasted and yet texture was perfectly done - soft, with a good bite.

Done like tacos, but with tasty naan, this was one of my favorite sides here! Textures and flavours are well-balanced with the perfectly deep fried fish which was soft and chunky, served with madras sauce, yoghurt and onions - Eat this while it’s piping hot!

There’s also Kerala Beef and New Delhi Hot Chicken Kathi Naans for those who doesn’t fancy fish.

PS. Kathi Naans are available for a 1-for-1 deal on Burpple Beyond!

The soft shell crab was light and crisp, not too greasy. Not your typical bisque but equally smooth and creamy and it’s very flavourful, a good contrast with the yoghurt sauce.

Wasn’t sure what to expect when it came as skewers but this was also good! Well-crusted with fragrant spiced rub, incredibly crispy and melt-in-the-mouth pork cheeks. The madras mustard was tangy and slightly spicy and the refreshing pickles goes very well together as a great side dish!

Stuffed with minced meat, a little more heavy handed on the spices; the chicken wings were very tender, served with a chipotle yoghurt sauce that was surprisingly refreshing!

Started out with this gorgeous ikura papadum ($14) which was just the beginning of all things good to come!

I loved the addition of creme atop the crisp tasty papadum that gave a contrast to the burst of saltiness from the ikura, generously dusted with fragrant spices plus the different plays of texture here.

Soft carrot cake with some wokhei-charred bits for that contrasting crisp texture, and a good balance of sweet/ salty with generous amount of caipoh within. Will probably add on more egg next time but we loved it!

The unassuming clear soup was light, comforting and surprisingly packed with flavour!

Pick from Signature/ Sauerkraut/ mala spicy or dry beef noodle, with dry chicken noodles as the only non-beef version; followed by the preferred thickness of your noodles. And I love that one is given the option to not have any coriander/ Chinese leek or chilli in the bowl.

I’d have preferred a more al-dente texture for the hand-pulled noodles. Also added on grilled chicken which was very juicy but a little on the salty side. Probably good for sharing.

The brown sugar milk tea was not too bad, flavour was pretty strong (and so also slightly sweeter than I’d like), we liked the chewy pearls.

But still prefer the Dong Ding Oolong. We were there around lunch time on a weekday and while it didn’t look crowded, the wait to get our drinks was pretty long so if you’re in a rush, may not be such a good idea?

Not sure if it’s still like that - alternatively, get the drip tea bags which are perfect for office!

Been wanting to try this for awhile and it was shiok!

Atas version of nonya caipng, I love, but not well-versed in this cuisine - but every dish was pretty well executed to me.

Quite a good variety of dishes to pick from and there’s an interesting kerabu (salad) section.

The prices turned out ok, ranging from $5-10. Everything would’ve been about $15/pax, with the exception of the fish (swipe to see!) which we happily ordered without checking the price 😂 The fish was firm flaky and nicely crisp and flavour - which was good, but was very, very pricey.

My favourite was the yam cake, which was nicely fried, soft and you could still taste the chunks of yam; hae cho with bits of fresh prawns in deep fried bean curd skin; chapchye was also very flavourful and texture was soft with a bit of bite from the black fungus. Go for the tender beef rendang! Ayam Buahkeluak was earthy but rather light while the chicken was undoubtedly tender and succulent. We also ordered a soup - the meatball was juicy and well seasoned, tho we weren’t a fan of the soup itself which had a hint of alkaline taste.

Good for groups if you like sharing and trying a bit of everything. Wouldn’t mind coming back once in awhile!
