Came here for lunch. Ordered the Gyu Don v2.0 ($16), Yummy Tiger Prawn Pasta ($20) and Sweet Potato Caramel Latte ($6).

Gyu Don v2.0: Thinly Sliced USA Beef Shortplate cooked in Aromatic Reduction & Caramelized Onions, Tempura Onions, Japanese Pearl Rice, Onsen Lava Egg. Beef slices were well marinated and tender. Tempura onion on the other hand was disappointing. Soft and unseasoned.

Yummy Tiger Prawn Pasta: Linguine, Creamy Tom Yum Sauce, Tiger Prawns, Cherry Tomatoes, Kaffir Lime. The tomyum flavour was not bad. The prawns however do seem a little small and somehow I feel that using fresh prawns would be better for this dish.

The sweet potato caramel latte was excellent. Milky, creamy, sweet and delicious. Highly recommend getting this drink. Service was not bad. Servers were attentive enough to top up our water.

Came here with my friend for dinner.

Ordered their Bacon Mac & Cheese ($19). They offer 3 option of Non-Spicy, Mild, Very Spicy. I got the Very Spicy option and when it came the server emphasized the word Very Spicy. The aroma of the dish seemed really spicy which made me really excited. However, I was left disappointed as it did not live up to my expectations. If you were to compare the spiciness from a mala xiang guo it would at most be a 小辣 level. Taste wise it was not bad, tasted like a creamy barbeque sauce. Pasta was Al dente and there were a few pieces of bacon.

We also got their Churros ($12) 6 pieces which came coated with 5 spice sugar and chocolate sauce at the side. Honestly I didn't enjoy the 5 spice sugar coating, as it kind of reminds me of fried chicken cutlet. Would have prefer just cinnamon sugar coating.

Would I be back? I don't think so as I did wait quite some time at the entrance before I was let in.

Came here for lunch.

Beef Tom Yum ($15.90). Creamy Tom yum sauce, chili padi, beef Striploin slices. Tom yum sauce was not bad, acidic with a slight heat. Not too spicy. Striploin slices were quite tough.

Salmon Fillet ($18.90). Fillet of salmon, sauteed mushroom, potato truffle mash, poached egg, hollandaise sauce, Cajun spices. Well cooked salmon. Potato truffle mash was good. Could taste and smell the truffle. Poached egg was perfectly cooked with a flow-y yolk.

Salted Caramel Cake ($7.90). A cake layered with salted caramel, cream and sponge cake. Not too bad, taste good. Not too sweet but I wished it was saltier.

Overall food was not too bad. If you're planning to eat here, do make a reservation.
