We went on a tuesday night and luckily we made a reservation - the place was crowded and almost all the tables were taken.

We got their crab with mentaiko, grilled squid, pork jowl and garlic fried rice. The food was great - well seasoned and delicious. Special shoutout to the squid and the pork jowl!! The squid paired perfectly with the mayo sauce and the pork jowl was tender, soft and when eaten with the egg - a burst of flavours in my mouth. The service was really good, the waiters were attentive and refilled my water before me asking. They also have certificates to recommend sake - so if you drink, definitely get their recommendations as they are experts.

Really enjoyed my time there, total was about $40 per pax (after gst and svc charge). Will be back again!

Tried 2 different flavours, and all were so stuffed with generous amounts of liao (ingredients)!! The glutinous rice was well seasoned and each dumpling was shiok in a different way. The serving size is also not too big, which makes it a delicious meal/afternoon snack!

Location is abit out of the way, but it is nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of malls. The food was good (their pasta was so umami, loved every bite and their chicken burger was nicely cooked, chicken was tender and had a generous side of fries)! I suspect their nachos used cheesy doritos, and was abit too cheesy for me, but cheese lovers will definitely love it! Their gula melaka cake was also rly nice, not too sweet and had a nice spongey layer.

Tried 5 different flavours, and all were so stuffed with generous amounts of liao (ingredients)!! My favourite one was the emperor one, where it had pork, egg and mushrooms! The glutinous rice was well seasoned and each dumpling was shiok in a different way. My family also enjoyed the dumplings, must say it makes for a delicious meal/afternoon snack!

To start off, the food was amazing - the 2 steaks we had were cooked perfectly, and the sauces (salt, some garlic aioli and bbq?) served with it went very well with the meats! The appetizers were interesting yet delicious (we had the pig's head and sautéed squid), the meal was wrapped up with a a good tiramisu! The dessert wasn't heavy, but fluffy and light, tying the whole meal together very well! The staff were also very attentive and explained the dishes to us before we ate. I would highly recommend this place for a date out, or a gathering amongst friends! It is really fine dining done well, at a reasonable price!

Was looking for a steakhouse near me and I chanced upon FBG. Had the denver and deckle steak there, where they were served with salt and charred garlic. The steaks were served medium rare and it was indeed medium rare (unlike other steakhouses I've been to)! We also ordered some sides to go with the steaks, being the creamed kale and the grilled broccolini. I would recommend the broccolini as it was served with a tangier sauce which helped balance out the "heavier" steaks. It's location is also very accessible, being a 5min walk from Botanic Gardens. Would highly recommend it for any date nights, or a hearty dinner out with friends and family!

This bowl of prawn noodles slaps......!!! I cant even get over how rich the broth was, had an umami taste and wasn't too thin. I opted for the prawns and tobico balls, while my partner got the prawns and shabu shabu! The serving seemed small but we were so full after!! We got kway teow as our noodles and would highly recommend it. We also got their tasting platter of ngoh hiang, and wow every bite was so delicious, bouncy and fresh. Will highly recommend for any occasion!

The dumplings were so good, each dumpling had a different filling and we had so much fun tasting all of it! The soup was great, light, and not too heavy despite the amount of sour cream poured over it! The pork chebureki "curry puff like" side was super good as well, crispy and not too oily!! The cake was slightly on the sweeter side but was unique and delicious!

On top of that, the staff was so friendly! He explained to us each dish and answered our questions patiently! Really made the entire experience so much more enjoyable! Will definitely recommend it if you're looking to try a new cuisine (especially since we can't travel now) :-)
