The mussels were more plump than your average mussel, and the curry was quite rich and well-balanced - not too spicy or coconutty but sufficiently lemak. I enjoyed the mantous with the crisp exteriors!

Overall, this is a decent place but I felt like there were more misses than hits. Maybe because we are not really the seafood kind of people so we couldn’t properly appreciate it. Probably wouldn’t return, but if you do visit I would recommend the curry mussels and the canto grouper, and perhaps the seabass pasta. Service was not bad, they give a brief introduction of each dish when they serve it, but the timing that the food came could be better managed.

The “pate” was indeed smoky, but it wasn’t anything to shout about. The sourdough was very nicely toasted tho, it was crunchy and of a good thickness. The pickled garlic shoots were quite interesting, and the “olive vegetable” (as per what they wrote on their menu) was rather strong in olive flavour. The components didn’t really gel well together though.

This was served with a seaweed butter and braised kelp, but I didn’t think the kelp paired well. These were alright, not overcooked but wasn’t impressive either. The server told us that we should try the prawns on its own first, then squeeze the lemon. It was much better with the lemon, which brightened up the dish and enhanced the flavour of the prawns.

This was our fav dish at this place! The broth was sweet and savoury, fish was bouncy and the glass noodles were a nice addition to complete the dish. They added sake to the broth which gave it a slightly boozy taste, which amped up the flavour profile. I think it’s inspired by the cny / wedding dinner fish, except this contains fish slices rather than a whole fish.

This was really small, which I would have been okay with had it been good, but sad to say this was pretty meh. Not sure if they had meant for a risotto because on the menu they really listed it as “chili crab risotto”, but don’t expect risotto textures. Sauce had flavours of tomato and corn, but wasn’t to our palate; mixing the egg in didn’t really add much. Prawns were nice but there wasn’t much of it. Also, there was barely any crabmeat. Not worth a try, nor the price.

The fish was done quite nicely, with a crisp skin. I thought the nori cream tagliatelle was decent, it had an interesting briny flavour and delicious wasn’t very creamy so it assuaged my fears that it would be overly creamy and cloying. But some of my friends didn’t really fancy it, so I guess it depends on personal preference!
