Been a fan of their deep fried spring chicken at other outlets. Brought family to this branch to try. Chicken was fried to perfection! Crunchy and fragrant, best I have had amongst the various branches. Tried their blooming onion, pretty decent, except the middle portion which could have been better separated for better frying. Overall a great dinning experience.

We ordered a crispy fried half chicken with rice ($10.90) and a smoked duck salad ($7.50). The portion for the fried chicken was large enough for two small eaters, especially the heaping of rice. The yellow rice tastes like your typical garlic chicken rice, no hint of turmeric was detected. The chicken was well seasoned without being too salty and the skin was nicely crisped. The coleslaw had really pronounced notes of onion, more than usual, so I liked it. The smoked duck salad was differs from the photo in the menu, with the smoked duck breast chopped into tiny pieces. The 90% cooked egg was a nice surprise as I did not expected it in a duck salad. The thousand island dressing tastes like it came from the supermarket but we were not expecting anything otherwise. To sum up, it's good no-frills local western food. Service was quick and I love their all-in pricing inclusive of service charge and GST. Will be back to try the fried onion blossom.

Nice dining ambience, love the decor of the place. Food-wise, portion is smaller, chicken pieces are pathetically small, but taste crispy and tasty. Fish and chips serving is too little. Drinks are unique and this place do not hv service charge and GST. Will go again and try other food.

Food is delicious and prepared fresh. Service time during time of visit, which was almost 10pm is pretty quick. The chicken here is a must try as solely for their crispness. The shop ambiance is good and a great place to go with family and friends. Recommended for a wide choice of menu which can suits most taste buds. Will definitely come again in the future.

Food is generally not bad. Fried chicken is pipping hot and crispy. The fried onion was a tad bit salty. Nasi lemak was good with fragrant rice. Chilli is abit on the sweet side. Shop is nicely decorated. You can also have Cat & Fiddle cakes in store. Service wise is self-service. If you feel like having fried chicken, can come here to satisfy your cravings.

Nice ambience and food was prepared nicely and tasted good.Maybe it's not crowded I guess. A great place to chat after a great meal. Love the interior of this place. Cat N the Fiddle is also available here. Had the caramel cheesecake before main course. Only drawback here as any other outlets is that ordering is still using paper and customer had to queue and order. In this digital age, I guess they could integrate a digital menu and order from there. If food could be serve will be another plus as we don't want to see customer walking around with trays of food making the place chaotic.

Ate here for dinner. Ordered salted egg chicken chop pasta. The taste of the dish is really bland and disappointed. I could barely even taste the salted egg sauce, I could only taste the cream. Only thing that resemble salted egg was the yellow colour sauce in the plate. Ambience of the outlet is nice and comfy. Fairly spacious between tables. Just simply disappointed with the quality of the food.

Busier than Jalan Kayu's outlet. Went on a weekday, 730pm, queued for 10-15mins before getting a seat. Pizza was hot and nice. Drinks are great too. Spaghetti was an alright-amount.

The Nasi Lemak rice is very nice but sambal I prefer savoury type like those in Malaysia. This is a bit too sweat for me. The fried chickens are good and tasty too. Oh plus point for self fried Ikan Billis. I hate those people that sells Nasi Lemak using those ready cooked low quality baked Ikan Bilis. They are so hard and not fresh. So thank you for using fresh cooked ones. It’s so delicious. Last but not least, I’m quiet dissatisfied and disappointed with the egg. It looks awful, not fresh and a bit spoiled. Look at the picture yourself. I rather get a simple fried or the hard boiled egg which is the traditional Nasi Lemak egg. Thank you

Pasta is bland and watery, their black pepper crab pasta was basically just noodles in black pepper water. Drinks were underwhelming. Affordable pricing for a nice ambience

We stumbled upon the restaurant with high hopes of enjoying a good steak, but it turned out to be quite a disappointment, haha. We were served two oddly pale steaks, and although we tried not to judge by their appearance, the taste left much to be desired. We decided not to request an exchange, as we didn't want to be disrespectful to the chef, but decided we left a review to caution others about ordering steak here. 😄
