Pictured: Truffle tortellini ($17.90). This was one of their better dish alongside the “risotto di caprese e prosciutto parma” ($14.90). The tortellini certainly exuded truffle with every bite and the mushrooms were flavorful enough, but their tortellini itself was average. For the risotto, it was seasoned perfectly and the rice was cooked really nicely and it complemented quite well with the mozzarella and cherry tomatoes.
However, the rest of the dishes i tried (mushroom & bacon aglio olio, risotto vegeteriano) were a huge disappointment. The risotto tasted like a identity crisis - a combination of many ingredients but with no lasting impact. For the aglio olio, it was cooked decently (though i wished the linguini was cooked a tad longer), in terms of flavor it was also lacking whereby all i could taste was the overwhelming pepper.
The worst thing was their service. They kept getting our orders wrong and we had to constantly order for things we already ordered because they forget. Honestly this whole place was a hott mess.
Would not be back. But would try the other branch at oxley tower as i heard good things from there.

For a place that is famous for its chicken, it was their rice that make me want to go back for more. Especially the nasi lemak set at $7.90. The rice was so fragrant and coconut-y that you will find yourself reaching for more until there’s none left. Of course, their OMG chicken ($13.90) does not disappoint with the chicken really crispy and moist. Aside from that, their rice was slightly sweet and fragrant as well - taste wise reminded me of pineapple rice. However, their sides (corn bread and pasta salad) were disappointingly average. All in all, i would definitely be back for the nasi lemak and try the rest of their menu.
