Homely ambiance. Friendly staff

Ngoh hiang is very good, a must try.

And the chicken curry tasted good as well. Chicken is fresh.

What a satisfying meal! Have been patronising curry wok for ~10 years now, and it doesn’t disappoint. The chap chye is delicious, and it comes with a thin and light but flavourful zhup. The curry was well balanced and not too heavy, and the spiciness was tolerable. Potatoes were soft yet firm (not mashy). The otah was really good! Bouncy, and some parts had chunks of flaky fish.

Friends who know me know how I like interviewing the waitressing staff before ordering .

If its the orh nee I want - better give it to me homemade - otherwise no deal 🙅‍♀️.

This homemade orh mee is 100 percent yam with no fillers . Not too sweet and a portion is good to share amongst 2 .

Creamy and decadent .

Will be back for more ...

Flavourful chap Chye with lots of chunky and thick cut high quality mushrooms which is a rare find these days - most places use the cheaper sort and cardboard paper thin mushrooms.

Vegetables were well stewed till soft and the fish was well seasoned without being too salty or greasy .

Very authentic .

This was faultless - you don’t need to get to a private dining kitchen to get private dining food standards.

Perfectly made ngo Hiang with lots of crisp water chestnuts , aromatics and well marinated meat.
This ngo Hiang was delightfully light and not greasy . Beautiful !

Comes with homemade sambal Belachan and sweet sauce and a small side of achar .

One of the best ngo Hiangs I have had .


Ngoh Hiang - A mixture of fresh minced pork and prawns provide great flavour and a firm, springy texture. This is combined with vegetables such as water chestnuts, which add a surprising bite of crunchiness.
