Good thing that this almost-80-yrs-old chain can have a successful outlet at high-rental One Raffles Place. Overpaid yuppies can go to Jewel and the likes, but the simple people can save by having their coffee or tea breaks here. The staff is very friendly, there are more tea choices than at the yuppie stores, and prices are much more reasonable.

This new Jumbo is very different from the rest of the chain: it is much more upmarket, with cool décor and excellent service; and it serves dim sum. The chilli crab theme and flavours are present in many new dishes (eg. puffs, buns, etc). There are unusual innovations, eg. laksa cheung fun, new-look otah. The lobster (or shrimp) with crispy rice in broth is also creative, although not as delicious as the duck with crispy rice in duck broth version at Forbidden Duck in the CBD. All in all, good, interesting, and praiseworthy innovations, but not enough of a wow. We didn’t try the classic dishes, but assumed they’re as good as usual.

Decent local dishes, coffee and tea served in a comfortable seating at the same prices as Lau Pa Sat. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. That’s their formula for success!

Review of Holland Village outlet. Same winning combo across all branches: delicious, homey food; friendly service never leaving our tea glass half full; reasonable prices. Unlike at say, the Crystal Jade Kitchen outlets, standards have been consistent over decades.

Another business capitalising on the Kim Trump summit by offering a special version of nasi lemak, with kimchi and US beef. Innovative and decent tastes even if not authentic.

The food is ok, but no better than at Kopitiam food courts. Service is kind of slow, and without a single smile. Without the Entertainer 1-for-1 offer, the cost would have been unjustified. If you want to sample local food in an aircon environment, the Straits Kitchen at the Hyatt is much better!

We came here to celebrate the richness of Singaporean flavors. Chic dining room adjacent to the beautiful hotel lobby. On a Friday night, the wait was long, partially because the dining room is not well managed: There are only 10 tables, yet most 4-seat tables only have 2 pax; one long table had 3 pax. The beef rendang and seafood congee are succulent, the Konbu mee (a variation of Hokkien mee) is good. Service is smooth, under the direction of an effort Amazonian British receptionist. Prices are indeed exorbitant. It is interesting for a visit, but given the short menu and pricing level, Labyrinth at a Esplanade is a better choice for mod Sing.

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
