I love this place because it serves one of the best Tom yum in SG. Their peranakan dish buah keluak is a unique experience... The content of the fruit is best eaten with the Ayam. The udang asam is lovely but a bit on the pricey side. Been here several times. The food is generally delicious but the Tom yum is my favourite.

Was randomly browsing for restaurants to try in the area when we came across Bumbu. Food Based on the reviews, two dishes were greatly raved: (1) Fried Kang Kong Salad and (2) Beef Rendang. We included those in our order alongside the Clear Seafood Tomyum Soup and Tahu Telor with a bowl of rice to share. Unfortunately the Beef Rendang wasn't available, so we opted for the Green Curry Chicken instead. 1. Fried Kangkong Salad This was the highlight of our meal! It honestly tasted like potato chips, and it came with bits of meat and prawn which was a refreshing combination with the sauce. 2. Clear Tomyum Soup It's unlike the typical clear tomyum soup. Rather than spicy, it was more savoury and aromatic. Could be due to it being Thai-Indonesian style. It was full of ingredients with fish slices, prawns, and shellfish. Fresh prawns were used. However, it was a little too salty for our liking. 3. Tahu Telor I quite like this dish. It's a sweeter dish with egg tofu (note: not beancurd) with generous serving of fried egg floss. 4. Green Curry Chicken Similar to the clear tomyum soup, it was atypical with a strong taste of coconut milk and thinner. Not my personal favourite although my companion quite enjoyed it. Drinks We had the Thai Milk Tea and Ice Blended Avocado. They were ok. For the latter, the taste of avocado and gula melaka syrup was distinct. Service Staffs were friendly and welcoming. Ambience Comfortable and homey. The decor was interesting. It wasn't crowded at all during a Saturday lunch. All in all, we will be back to try other dishes on the menu! Do note that the portions are generous, so be careful not to over-order like we did.

TLDR: AMAZING food, super personalised service, and great ambience! A wonderful place for families and close friends for a nice dinner, and to have great conversations. Chanced upon this quaint space while taking a walk, and was blown away. The staff were extremely patient, attentive, and accommodating. Despite the cuisines being served, they allowed for us to have completely non spicy alternatives. The space felt cosy and home-like. Antiques were all over, and they were so so beautiful. It felt like I was visiting a friend with the service and space. Tables were well spaced enough for each table to hold its conversations well, without the ambience being too loud. Then there’s the food… THE FOOD. Every single thing was so good. My partner and I normally rank our favourite dishes, but we really struggled to this time. The standard of all we had was superb. We started with the Kangkong salad, an appetiser that had so many layers of flavour AND textures to it. Crispy with amazing batter. We also had tehu Telur. SUPER soft and tasty tofu and crispy and tasty batter. We had beef rendang; I don’t normally like Beef rendang, but this was extremely rich and tasty. Meat was slightly on the dry side, but the sauce made up well for it. Then we had fried mee sua. Not on the menu, but we read that they used to have it. Very generous with the ingredients!!!! And super tasty too. If you like Peranakan / Thai / Indo food, PLEASE do try this place!!!!!! I had such a wonderful time here, and am already booking for family gatherings, and asking friends to come too. What a gem of a find.

Stepping into the store was an experience because of the unusual furniture collection and decor. There is comfortable seating with privacy for each table. The table where we sat was made from old sewing machine leg, while the tabletop featured peacock tiles as design. It felt like an alternate universe away from Singapore. Menu is an eclectic mix of Peranakan, Thai, Indonesian and Chinese dishes such as Beef rendang, Ayam buah keluah, Tom yum soup, tauhu teloh, sambal kangkong, fish maw soup. Taste is authentic and hearty. Fish maw soup came with shiitake, chicken, dried scallop, with texture of sharks fin soup. Beef rendang and ayam buah keluah were both delicious.

A HDB neighbourhood restaurant in Blk 4 Queen's Road (in Farrer, Singapore), serving a selection of Thai, Indonesian, and Peranakan/Nyonya dishes. The ngoh hiang is so good!!! So is the beef rendang and the butter oat soft shell crab. The tom yum seafood has the right balance of spiciness and milky coconut. And the cendol has the reputation of being one of the best in Singapore. Thick, rich coconut milk and generous helping of gula melaka!
