Finally visited the (once) raved about Western Co. Kudos to the new (& very young) management for trying to provide good service with smiles despite the peak period. Visited on a Sunday noon time, and it was almost full house. Ordered the Ying Yang Signature Combo for $20.90 including a $5 raclette cheese top up along with Chicky Burger $16.90 & Chicken with Shiitake Mushroom Sauce $9.90. I understand that they were pretty much understaffed & it got to a point where orders were mixed up & customers who ordered later got their food earlier than customers who ordered way earlier. 45 minutes into my wait after placing my order, one dish appeared. 1 hour later, (I'm not kidding), another dish arrived and yet another 1 hour 20 minutes later, the last dish (finally) arrived. The staff did come over to apologise for the wait but to be honest such a long wait is really unacceptable considering how the crowd started to clear out after awhile. When my signature Ying Yang combo came, it came without the raclette cheese I paid $$$ to top up for and they had to take it to the back again to scrape the cheese off the wheel. & they took another 5 minutes to do so. Food was substandard & below average & definitely not worth the prices paid. Nothing worth raving about. If the management wants to make it, they definitely have to do something about the way they're managing the order flow, no one is going to wait an hour for a battered fish...

I was amazed by the lovely symphony of sweet, salty, fruity and milky flavour... paired with freshly toasted baguette... it was the only edible dish we had for the meal. (The fried fish was too watery inside, the chicken and the fries was so normal that their flavor were almost forgotten as we leave the place.) A recommendation for this dish would be to add some nuts and other dried berries to enhance its flavour and texture complexity.

Located between Farrer Park station and lavender station it's about a good 10-15 minutes walk.

Got the classic carbonara ($16.90) under the cheese wheel pasta column which consisted of shiitake mushrooms, crispy bacon, garlic (thick-ish slices, YUMS), parsley with fettuccine all rolled in the wheel of heavenly goodness before serving it to you. I must say the portion looked a lot smaller than I expected but it's good enough for 1 person portion because the cream and cheese is pretty heavy.

As for the fish and chip (with a choice of two sides; we picked both fries) it was rly normal besides the fact that they gave salted egg sauce and Chilli crab sauce. The fries we chose for the sides were really good tho. It's thinner than shoestring fries and covered with a layer of orangey batter.

Overall I would recommend the pasta if you do visit this place. Oh and pls do reserve. We came 30 minutes after the opening time (12pm) and it was already filled with reserved signs and people. There were only a few empty tables left.

The chilli crab sauce is nicer than the salted egg yolk in my opinion. The fish is very well fried! Love the chao ta smell! ($13.90)
