Really enjoyed their charcoal grilled whisky ribeye. The steak had a smoky taste to it while the meat was tender. The portion is also hearty while the salad worked well as a palate cleanser. Highly recommended to make reservation as we did not, but since we came around 6.15pm, slightly before most of the reservations at 7.30, we were given 1h+ to finish all our food, which was manageable, but I would have preferred a longer duration. Will be back, this time with a reservation!

There is a special Burpple Beyond menu that has a more limited selection of pastas, risottos and pizzas available for 1 for 1. The service is amazing as the staff are friendly and pleasant. We ordered the Tagliatelle with Pork Sausage in Mushroom Cream Sauce and Porcini Infused Mixed Mushrooms Risotto. Both were good but the risotto was better. Would recommend the risotto. Overall a really pleasant experience, would love to go back.

This place was packed on a weekday night when we went there. We ordered ribeye steaks and noticed that the sizes of steak given to each of us was not consistent. Only mine (pictured) seemed to be 250g, while the rest looked more like 200g. The steak itself was good and well executed, but the fries was passable with little to no truffle taste or aroma. The service was amazing as the staff were very attentive. One irk would have to be the loud edm music that made the whole place feel like a club instead of a more laid back place.

We ordered the Singapore style chilli prawns, hakka steamed tofu and chef joel's xo white fish soup. I would recommend the chilli prawns, particularly with the mantos, as the sauce was sweet yet slightly spicy. It was a very satisfying dish. The hakka steamed tofu was also not bad given that it was a lighter dish. However, I would pass on the xo white fish soup next time as I felt that it wasn't hot enough, making the soup's fishy taste slightly unbearable. Overall, I still enjoyed the food there and would be back if in the area.

We had the 1 for 1 pizzas and pastas (Foie Gras and Truffle Tagliatelle, Beef Lagsana, Prosciutto de Salmon and Burrata Pizza). Everything was really delicious but if I were to order again, I would forgo the salmon pizza for something else on the menu! Would visit again if in the neighbourhood.

Back here for the second time since we were in the area and too lazy to queue for five guys😂 Again, there is a short queue that clears quickly, and I tried the truffle udon this time round. The chef was nice enough to add tempura to my udon and I loved the crunch that it added to the dish! The truffle gets a little cloying at the end but a drink did the trick. Sad that the BB deal will be changing to 30% off instead of 1 for 1. I would still patronize this store again despite this as it is really value for money👍

Went to Biseryu for the second time and once again, it did not disappoint! Got the omu rice with roast beef this time round and really enjoyed it. My friend got the katsu and ebi set and it was such a huge portion that we were shocked😂 Everything was delicious and we paid less than $26 for 2 mains and 2 drinks, which I feel is a good deal.

Saw that the BB deal for this place was expiring soon so headed down to try it. It is overall a really pleasant experience despite the long wait for the food to arrive (45 minutes). Ambience was lovely, staff were polite and efficient, and most importantly, the food was really delicious! I especially loved the buncha and my friends loved the various phos that they ordered. The waiters mixed up the spring rolls order and even ended up giving us an extra portion which was nice of them. Would love to go back even without BB!

Love the combination of korean and mexican cuisine here. The baja fish tacos and the kimchi fries were the highlights. Their draft beers were great too! Will be back

We loved the food at iO Italian Osteria and will definitely be back. I would recommend the porchetta and the stuffed roman schiacciata! Very unique and delicious. I would give the saffron pizza a miss the next time. Another point to note is that although the service staff were polite, the way that they attempted to our plates even before we were done eating at times was just rude. I understand that the restaurant is overbooked and that they wish to improve their turnover rates but this is not the way to do it... The whole meal felt so rushed and not as enjoyable as it could have been.

We really enjoyed our meal (the burpple set) at Ola. On top of the food pictured above, there was also a quinoa salad and a desert. The paella was a little salty but other than that everything else was delicious. The service staff were friendly and the food was also served swiftly upon us ordering. Do note that they have just changed their Burpple Beyond menu a few days ago so it's $78++ per set (up from $68++ previously). Still worth the price imo, will be back especially if they refresh their menu again!

The snaking line outside this tiny store speaks for itself on how popular this udon store is. We got both ramen and udons and enjoyed them all. It was made even more worth it with their burpple beyond deal, so I will definitely be back!
