Teeny tiny portions but rounded taste. Some hits - duck confit with a side of tagliatelle and truffle mac and cheese. Some misses - gnocchi jus was flat and pancakes sub par.

The place’s exterior and interior design are pretty, and the food tastes good too. Nothing much to rave about other than the way they design the place.

Have not visited here for a while. The food is still yummy and ambience is still one of the best.

This family restaurant has been in business since 1950, and at this Dempsey location since the 80’s. It is a bit of a cult, with loyal customers, many of whom first came here as kids. The clientèle is largely Asian, and mainly local at that. The fish head curry is awesome, although at the last visit, I found it a bit too salty. Other dishes are not the best Indian you can get in Singapore, but you come here mainly for the experience, and the fish head! Efficient service from roaming wait staff, who can happily refill your needs in rice, pappadum, or vegs. Prices are very reasonable.

😂😂😂 Went for dinner at @redsparrowsg located in Dempsey and was pretty much amazed at the wide variety of options that they serve. 🍴

The Banh Xeo, pancake filled with mushroom and prawns is one of my new favorite 😍

Not putting on any PORKer face – I’ll just admit that I’m craving for this awesome PORK belly! 🤤🤤🤤
.
Thit Kho Tau ($26++), which is our Chinese’s braised pork belly equivalent, was my favourite dish at Red Sparrows. 😍😍😍 Featuring Berkshire pork belly braised to perfection in a coconut & soy sauce glaze, these glistening cubes of meat were extremely flavourful from absorbing all the essence of the marinate & sauce. The unforgiving fatty layers lent some succulence & kept the meats moist in every bite. ❤❤❤
.
Fret not if you find this dish overly heavy on the palate - the pickled papaya that sits atop the pork cubes cuts the greasiness with its tangy tones & refreshing crunch! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
.
Another of my top picks would be their Cha Gio ($16++) - honestly who can resist fried rolls! 💕 These were stuffed with a generous amount of  fresh crabmeat, prawns, minced pork & taro, which tasted like a really flavourful ngoh hiang! 😋😋😋 The accompanying tangy sweet fish sauce elevated the overall taste profile.
.
Fans of fish can also try the Ca Cuon ($15++), a zhng-up version of a typical Vietnamese rice roll that features a huge chunk of grilled snapper! 🤩The seasoning of the fish might have included some chilli padi as it carried a spicy kick surprisingly. 🔥 The fermented anchovy & pineapple sauce was the main star in imparting sweet-savoury flavours to the otherwise light-tasting roll. I personally do not like the taste of fresh basil leaves & mint leaves so I pulled them out. 😅
.
Overall, really liking the food here at Red Sparrow! 👏🏻

Featured here: classic fish and chips in the front, and classic truffle pasta at the back. Can’t go wrong with these safe favorites!

Razor clams are so fresh here. Seriously yummy.
