From the Burpple community

Have been wanting to try this place out for almost a year now and we finally got the push we needed when we saw that they were on Burpple Beyond! They specialise in hearty British fare such as fish and chips, pastas etc. Got the Bangers & Mash ($17.90) and Carbonara Duck ($18.90) and sadly, we were quite disappointed. The Bangers & Mash were average and we found the sausage a tad bit too salty for our liking. The mash was all right and had a good creaminess to it, but if you don’t like lumpy mash, this isn’t for you. The duck pasta in our opinion, even after the Burpple 1-for-1 deal, was completely not worth it. You can easily make a plate of this at home yourself for less than $7. The pasta sauce tasted like it came from a jar and the pasta wasn’t cooked to a nice al dente. The duck slices were okay but they honestly didn’t add much value to the dish. Went back later on to read the reviews and realised we weren’t the only disappointed patrons and they seemed to be consistently pushing out subpar plates of food. What a waste. The staff, however, were very friendly and nice, which is pretty much the only plus point of the experience. We hope they buck up soon and the food quality will improve if we ever come back!

Ordered Tandoori Fish, Hunky Dory Aglio Olio (+ prawns and onsen egg) and Butterbeer (separate order). The sauce for the Tandoori Fish was packed with spices and flavours however the fish is really small and consists of two small pieces. Doesn’t feel very worthy of the $17.90 pricetag. Hunky Dory Aglio Olio (not shown in pic) is pretty good, addition of the prawns and onsen egg is a superb choice! However do note that the addition of prawns & onsen egg (~$5.80) is not covered within the Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 Mains promotion, which we were quite dismayed to find out as the staff failed to convey this to us prior to ordering. The pasta by itself cost $10.90, wouldn’t say it’s very worth to obtain that as the free item since the free item is redeemed for the item of lower value. Butterbeer ($8) is good, worth a try as you don’t see this beverage commonly sold outside! Overall the cafe is quite aesthetically themed, might be a bit warm during the afternoon as there’s not much air-conditioning.

We ordered the Pesto Cream Dory Fish and it was such a colorful masterpiece. The ingredients used were fresh. The pesto wasn’t overbearing and allowed the flavor of the dory fish to shine. The dory fish was silky, soft and decadent. It had a crispy layer of fish skin, which gave a nice change in texture to the velvety fish. The mashed potato ain’t your regular mashed potatoes. It was so smooth and buttery, and it absorbed all the essence of the dory fish and the pesto sauce. The dish was light on the palette yet so satisfactory.
We also ordered the Butter beer (Homemade butterscotch soda, $8) excluded from the 1-for-1 deal and it was totally worth it. The soda wasn’t as sweet, with a hint of bitterness and was fragrant. The foam was sweet, smooth and flavorful, which blended harmoniously with the soda. However, it gets sweeter as you drink because of the foam.
Overall, it was truly a unique experience with great ambience. Definitely coming back again!

Very satisfying Shepard’s pie and the 1-1 deal makes it very worth it.

Really fork tender beef along with a wonderful bed of buttery mash potato. My only gripe with this dish is that the asparagus tasted raw!!

Had a go on the classic Dory fish and chips ($9.90), very affordable! The dory fish was fried really nicely but still kept its flakiness and moisture. What looks like mashed potato was actually a thicker tangy mayo for your fish! If you’re feeling hungry, you can add $3.90 for another piece of dory. Wooooooorth.

Ambience was really nice with a lot of for foreigners walking along Haji Lane for the added overseas feeling! Would definitely return and try other dish with Burpple Beyond!
