Had a wedding banquet lunch here and it was such a delight! Pretty yummy typical Chinese banquet with such an amazing view from the 65th floor 🤯🤯 Food was generally pretty average with premium ingredients (sea cucumber, steamed sea bass, roasted duck with sweet plum sauce), but shoutout to the Steamed Drunken Prawns in Herbal Broth for those plump juicy fresh prawns with that thick herbally soup that was absolutely bursting with flavour! Also, it helped that they served up my favourite chinese dessert - Yam Paste! 🥰🥰 Definitely a very nice location to have a fancy treat with such a fantastic view 👍🏻👍🏻

Definitely a win just from side dishes alone! Though sides were a little on the salty side, but amazing amazing variety with sausages, beancurd skin, kimchi tofu, omelette, coleslaw salad, potato salad, kimchi and spinach 🥰🥰 You can be assured of a hearty meal when dining here for sure 👍🏻👍🏻

This was so so so good?!??? Haven’t had such good quality durian in a while and this is exactly what every durian should aspire to be??? Tbh the Jin Feng easily surpasses all durians, and the MSW is just unnecessarily fantastic. But really, this batch of durian was to die for - Jin Feng was creamy and rich with just a slight tinge of sweetness while the MSW was so full in flavour with just the right amount of bitterness😌😌 Good packaging and efficient service (we ordered that morning, and collected it the same afternoon) 💯💯

Tried a cup of their house blend (Pen & Pencil) and a cup of their single origin (Lufa Papua New Guinea), and my vote goes to the...houseblend! Love the strong rich aromatic nutty flavour that complemented the milkiness beautifully, and it was really a good cup of coffee! Nice chill ambience with decent brunch food but skip their pastries!

Finally got to try this and finally understand why there’s perpetually a long queue here! The very definition of comfort food, this down-to-earth eatery dishes out countless plates of curry rice that is absolute comfort food for the heart 💕💕 Every single dish I ordered was good, especially the sotong that was so fresh and soft and absolutely phenomenal when dunked in the curry, as well as the chap chye stewed with love and patience 🤤🤤 Curry here is lighter than what you would expect, but not compromising on flavour with their mix of 2 other sauces with the curry, and really eliminates the whole jelak snoozy feeling post-prandial. Fried pork cutlet, braised pork and sweet sour pork were also pretty good! Very reasonable price for such a feast for the heart, mind and soul 😌😌 Plenty of seats though it might get a little hot, and service is so nice and friendly even though they’re so busy! Definitely a must try if you’re around the area for lunch 👍🏻👍🏻

Two beautifully done poached eggs on generous slabs of smoked salmon with homemade hollandaise sauce atop a thick slice of fluffy multigrain 🤤🤤 Really enjoyed this dish that was so simple and priced reasonably with no service charge/GST! Eggs and hollandaise sauce really coated every part of the multigrain and every bite contained the goodness of every single layer. Good place to go to for simple non-pretentious brunch food 👍🏻👍🏻

YUM??? This was one amazing sandwich that combined sautéed garlic butter cremini mushrooms, melted swiss, caramelised onions and Dijon mustard pretty darn well??? Known for their affordable and delicious sandwiches, this dish definitely didn’t disappoint! 😋😋 Loved the beautifully toasted sourdough as well, which really just held the sandwich together in a non-messy and super delicious way. Nice ambience with water provided and friendly service at no service charge/GST 👍🏻👍🏻

Pretty decent savoury waffle that comes with 4 quarters to dunk in maple syrup, 2 slices of streaky bacon (or honey baked ham) with scrambled eggs on the side (top up to change from sunny side up). 🍳🥓Scrambled eggs was alright in texture but flavour wasn’t oomph enough and we had to salt it ourselves, and could have afforded to be a little more generous with the bacon (which was actually really crispy and nicely done). Waffles was crisp but flavour had something missing. Overall pretty average brunch dish and nothing particularly stood out, except maybe being a little more affordable than typical cafes. Nice ambience though with water provided and friendly service with no service charge/GST ☺️☺️

Perfect for family gatherings (esp with the elders), this 8 pax set menu comes with their signature Samsui Ginger Chicken, Claypot Tofu and many more! Their ginger samsui chicken was tender with the perfect amount of fat (though some outlets like IMM are more tender than others like here), but the true star of the dish is their heavenly ginger sauce (which is refillable if you’re dining in!), and loved the option of lettuce to wrap the chicken for that extra crunch! 🤤🤤 The claypot tofu was exceptional simply cause of the savoury umami sauce! Other dishes include steamed fish (very soft and not at all fishy), sweet and sour pork (really generous portions with pineapples and peppers), prawn and chinese sausage fried rice (this was good!), dark sauce prawns (this was really sweet and actually really good, just wished that the prawns were pre-peeled to really absorb all that saucey goodness!). 😋😋 Only dishes that were lacklustre would be the corn and carrot soup (doesn’t quite align with the whole theme of the set course) and the dessert (white fungus pear almond dessert?). Overall, a nice place to dine with the family with decent service (though felt a little rushed during our meal), and they definitely do serve up mean dishes with spectacular sauces that definitely are worth a try! 👍🏻👍🏻

Yum??? Solid bowl of Thai noodle soup with really good broth that’s the perfect balance of sour and spicy! Generous with thick pork slices, this bowl also comes with fish cakes, fish ball, bean sprouts and fried wanton skin! 🤤🤤 Though the thin white noodles are thinner than what I was expecting, actually quite enjoyed the chewiness and QQ-ness that soaked up the broth very nicely 😍😍 Top up $3 to make it a lunch set with mango salad and dessert (though I’ve heard the desserts are quite so-so).

Definitely lived up to the hype! Sicilian Pistachio (+$1) was really creamy and had a really full flavour that many ice cream parlors fail to achieve 👍🏻👍🏻 Despicable (+$0.70) was more normal and nothing special, but honestly can’t go wrong with the ultimate combination of banana, brownies and walnut 😋😋 Will be back to try their many many other flavours (sampled their Black Sesame which is really gao and good!!), as well as their brownies and waffles 🐽🐽

Somehow found this even better than their signature Sor Hei (which is already really good)?? Loved the multi-dimensional warm oozy cheese encased within flaky crisp pastry shell 😍😍 Was initially skeptical of the price for this tiny pastry, but wow the pastry really spoke for itself 👍🏻👍🏻 PSA: 10% off every Monday and buy 2 free 1 about 30 min before closing! (And they close early at 5 on Mondays!)
