The food smells so good and fragrant even without taking the food out of the plastic bag. Delivery is $8 unless u order $80 worth I think. I appreciate how they make the food good till it tastes as if u are eating in the restaurant but in the comfort of ur home.
$6 Oyster Mee Sua: 8/10 Broth is warmth to the throat. Coriander gives it a good flavor. Oyster is Abit mushy. I think it's a hearty dish.
$8 Large Braised Pork Belly Rice: 8.25/10 Smell of braised pork is strong. Pork is chewy too.
$5 Shredded Chicken Rice: 8.5/10 Garlic is homemade, really fragrant and strong. With chicken, chili flakes and garlic, the dish became a spicy paradise. Altho chicken is dry. The dish still tastes great.
$3.50 Preserved Egg Tofu: 7.5/10 Bonito flakes smell game strong. Century egg taste isn't overwhelming so everyone can enjoy.

8.25/10
Long queue at 11.25am, manages to get food at 11.55am. Worth if u have time to kill and want some cheap and nice biryani.
Fragrant. Rice is norm. Cabbage is crunchy but Abit lacking in flavor. Mutton Curry is flavorful. Mutton is tender and fall-off-the-bone kind. Mutton doesn't have much of the gamey taste. Mutton with curry elevated the experience. Chicken is tender,skin is unevenly crisp tho. Curry did nothing to help the chicken. Price is cheap and affordable. Mutton is one of the better ones.

Hokkien Mee($5)@Nam Sing Hokkien Mee:

Called before I arrived and it was right on time.
Soggy,clean tasting. Fragrant and flavorful. Lime further improved the dish with sourness. Wok hei seems to be far in the background. I appreciate that their sotongs are not hard but chewy. Better than avg but not the best.

Loos Hainanese Curry Rice($4.50):
#JonApproves
8/10
Pork cutlet, 1 veg, Pork Belly and Steam Egg
Pork Belly is fatty and firm. Curry is light and flavorful, Abit of kick.. Smell like it has satay sauce. Pork cutlet is tasty and has Abit of chew. Veg is soft. Steam egg is soft yet firm. Cai Fan but lvl up. Setting standard for Curry Rice. Not the best tho..

#JonApproves (Not the wagyu beef)
Place is quite chill. Warm lighting.
Scallop Carpaccio($18) - 8.5/10 Scallops are fresh, like the small bit of spice from herbs and crunchiness from nuts, very clean tasting. Smooth scallops as if they were sliding on the tongue. Tobiko Eggs just burst in the mouth.

Oysters($18, $2 each) - 8.5/10 Oysters doesn't need to pick them out of shell. Fresh,maciam from another ocean also. Chewy, smooth. Limited choices for oysters tho. Maybe if got baked ones would be good too.

Quite chill place, Thai music, designed Abit atas but Thai style.
Red Ruby($4.90): 8/10 Shocked at first becos it don't look like it has anything red(Altho I'm not Fully color blind), coconut flavor is obvious. Chestnut is crunchy and sweet. Jackfruit provides the sourness to the dessert. Legit Red Ruby.
Food is nice but nothing mind-blowing. Would distance affect how many times I come here,YES. One of the best Thai food Eva? Nope.

1)Glass Noodles with Tiger Prawn in Claypot($19.90): 8/10 Strong glass noodle smell. Fragrant, Abit chewy, appreciate the crunch by garlic. Mushroom is big and chewy,bouncy too. Prawn is Abit lackluster, can't taste much of flavor but it is meaty. The head was flavorful and crunchy,vinegar helps to give it a boost in flavor.
2) Spring Rolls($9.90): 8.25/10 Strong Herby smell. Rolls are fragrant, flavorful and crunchy. With Thai sweet chili, it gives the rolls sweetness and Abit of spiciness. It makes almost no difference. Carrot,onion and radish Are fresh and crunchy, they even salted them,so they don't taste plain.

Nasi Lemak [email protected] Round Market:
#JonApproves
8.5/10
They used Basmati rice. Otah is nice. Nuts&ikan bilis are crunchy and not too salty. Egg is alright. Chili is Abit sweet and spicy, it takes some time to take effect. Cucumbers are crunchy and fresh. Chicken is crispy and flavorful. Like a small little Nasi Lemak from Changi village is at Tampines.

6.5/10
Due to the the expensiveness and most of the food not hitting the mark, that is the score I give. Service was weird,sometimes they will pause and kinda make things awkward when clearing the tables or pouring the tea into the cups. Not very friendly but maybe it is monsoon season so they are lidat??
Asparagus are crunchy & Sweet potato are meh. Not much flavor. Could have used more salt.
Venison Meat is ok
Sweet&sour pork is ok.
Peking Duck with wrap is nice but not better than Imperial [email protected] Cucumbers were not as crunchy.
Noodles cooked with Peking duck meat was not bad.
Buo Luo Bao is crisp and meat is nice,flavor is there but Abit lacking of something.
Chicken feet is spicy and sweet.
Pork ribs are nice.
Egg tarts are nice,got the eggy taste.
Chee cheong fun is meh.

8/10 We had Sambal Kang Kong which is not bad, Cai Po Omelette(it was mind-blowing, Abit salty but that made the world if difference to the dish), Deshelled Prawns were meaty and covered nicely with the sauce, Yang Chow Fried Rice was nice,not too salty, hearty plate of fried rice. Lastly, Indonesian Black Pepper Crab,surprisingly,the crab wasn't the best for me, it had not a lot of meat for a 700-900g crab, meat wasn't that flavorful not was it that tasty. It was alright. If I were to return,I'd probably order normal Tze Char. Altho they serve Mookata also,interesting siol.
