The service at this Western Muslim Restaurant was really tip top 🤩🤩 The staff were so attentive & polite, making dining such a wonderful experience. Once the 3 of us were seated, the staff immediately brought over a big complimentary bottle of water with glasses to our table, pouring the water for us. They were really attentive; when they saw us trying to open the bottle stopper later on, they readily came over and helped us to replenish our glasses with water. Really felt very pampered by their attentive service 😍😍 The black & white elegant decor is tasteful and casual, and the food is good. Special mention: Simply love their dessert! The molten chocolate cake is a definite winner. Have never had such yummy molten chocolate cake in Singapore! A definite must-try! 😋😋

Awesome fusion food at the cafe. The crispy fish appetizer (Shishamo Tempura) is such an unique dish, which is fried to perfection and somewhat taste like fillet-o-fish with the tartar sauce! 😂 The mini beef burger is quite juicy and easy to eat. We love the fish and chips as well! Where the chips is very crispy. Overall quite a good cafe for families!

Lovely halal cafe, food is delicious. Very impressive fish and chips, emphasis on chips bring extra crisp. The squid ink pasta was also a treat, not that spicy. They ran out of Coke, but very sweet to bring a pitcher of water instead. Service is excellent throughout dinner service. We be back!

First time dining here. Food was delicious. From the duck Wellington to the duck salad and the oven baked barramundi. All dishes were well seasoned. Duck Wellington is a MUST TRY🤤. Be sure to inform them ahead that you would to order the duck Wellington as they need to prep before you arrive. Will definitely visit here again! To top it off, staffs were all so nice and polite. Was a pleasant experience overall.😁

The atmosphere was elegant, comfortable. Smart casual, or regular normal outfit suited the environment. The service was beyond excellent, the staff, Ms Ayu was very accommodating and explain to us the different menu options and patient with us. The food was made with love and affection, the attention to detail and the quality of the food was beyond words. 1 of the best food places to try and experience. You won't be disappointed. 😊😊😊😊🥰🥰

Went there during a weekday and it wasn’t too crowded luckily! But the food is really amazing and I am surprised there isn’t queues streaming outside! The staff were super friendly and helpful and tried their best to serve us with great smiles! The food itself was delicious! The steak was generous and cooked to ideally what I wanted! Surprisingly, the sides was not just some normal frozen fries, but it was well battered! The wellington was flavourful and each part was tasty! Not the kind of wellington I was expecting with the fluffy texture, but still amazing!

Food is fairly priced. Service was exceptional. Truffle fries was just ok but not memorable. Fries type used though was the perfect cut, not mcd type;) truffle flavour was not strong enough Squid ink pasta was delicious and spicy. Serving portion is quite generous and the squid was huge! Beef was a disappointment to me. Will be reordering something else if i ever come back

Food is good. Price range from $20 and up. Store’s surrounding can be improved, especially in terms of cleanliness but I understand it may not be in their control. There were some junk placed beside the shop😅 Carpark is a little difficult in the area. Staff were all friendly though.

Reservation seamless, you can even pre-order. Very friendly staff. Food is delicious and ambience is nice. Lamb shank is really good. My striploin was closer to medium well than medium but it was still good. They were nice to let me try the 3 sauces. Fish & chips nice too but portion not as big as I imagined. Overall, very satisfied.

Had the Lamb Rack, Truffle Fries, Duck and Bone Marrow. Everything was so so so good except that bone marrow was abiiit salty. Lamb was cooked medium rare. Duck was very juicy and thick slices. Creme Brulee was really good! Not too sweet. Very refreshing wash after the savoury food! Staff are really friendly too.

Amazing place!! The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The food was delightful! I ordered the duck breast and the pairing of the puree was extremely complimentary. The duck was thick and juicy. We even got the creme brulee! It was not too sweet and we had both the vanilla and the pandan flavour. Unique and delicious! Totally recommend to come here!

Sliders were $18 (for 3 small sliders), Lemak Duck pasta was $28.90, calamari was $16. All the food was average, if I'm being nice. And this excludes a 10% service charge for which I had to ask for a serving plate when the calamari was served (and the waiter still asked - oh u want one more plate?) I don't think it's normal to want a customer to eat off a sharing plate right? I don't ever bother to spend time to review places but i thought I would save other would-be customers from the fate I had today. I don't see why this hard-to-park place can command their prices when it's serving average food.

Came in with high expectations because of the restaurant’s high google rating. Was quite a disappointing visit after having travelled from the West to try. Was greeted by quite a foul bathroom smell upon arrival which kind of ruined our experience from the start. Food was overpriced and very meh, contrary to the beautiful plating. Alfredo was way too creamy, chicken dry. Pan seared duck tasted like the $5 Cold Storage ones, and came with a side of bland mash potatoes. Our dessert molten chocolate cake was ok, quite a hard dish to mess up. Props to service though, the guy attending to us was very friendly and smiley. We will not be back though. ✌🏼

Had my birthday celebration here. Great food and awesome meat! There's a lot of choices for food and drinks. Its a Monday and there's no crowd at all. Highly recommended to try the food here. The best lamb rack, beef wellington & prime steak I've ever tried. Do make a reservation 1st before going. Staffs are friendly & nice to you. I got complimentary durian creme brulee as well as pandan and original flavour! We will definitely return back here to dine.

Good variety of food. Everything is home made. We had our Classic British Fish & Chips tasted soooo marvellous and yummy! The Prime Ribeye is a bit thin, but the taste and texture wasn’t compromised. We absolutely love the food recommendation and service from the server. Sadeva! You wouldn’t want to miss talking to Sadeva if you come here, he will tell what best for your choice for the day! Thank you!

Loved the duck wellington (order a day in advance, aak for a bit more gravy) and the ayam betutu, which was nice and moist and very flavourful.The waiting time was a bit long, esp for a weekday lunch. A big table had got there just before us. Attentive service.

Service - great service as staff walks around attending to customer needs. Very friendly. Ambience - There's afew IG friendly spots. Food - afew hits and misses. Squid ink pasta has a local/Thai fusion taste to it, which my pallette was excited about. Salmon is cooked to perfection, crisp on skin and moist on the inside. By far the best dish among our friends. Cream Brulee (Foc - might be present promo) taste was on the spot, not too sweet and smooth texture. Price - I would say it's on the higher side consider the location. $170+ for 4 main course, nachos, bone marrow and a free cream Brulee. Overall, with the great services. Would bring friends over for a meal. Cheers.

It was my husband's birthday so we had a complementary desert. Wanted to try their duck wellington but apparently you had to pre-order before you come. Anyway, it didn't deter me so I got their pan seared duck breast instead. I love every bite of it and the slices were thick and yummy! My husband got their prime ribeye steak with chimichuri sauce, the sauce was a different approach and it was quite a refreshing taste pair with the steak. We got their crispy calamari and my god. They are not selfish at all about the size of the calamaris! The batter was crispy and the calamari was soft and fresh. We love the sauce pairing too! We also got the oven baked oysters and boy don't we love it. Half a dozen is definitely not enough! Finally, the desert. My husband got a creme brulee and he fell in love with it at first bite. Definitely worth every penny spent here.

The Lemak Chili Padi Pasta stands out with its unique blend of pasta infused with local flavors. While I enjoy the right level of spiciness, I'd prefer it a bit milder to balance the other dishes. The well-cooked duck slices complement the dish nicely. The Soft Shell Crab Pasta steals the show for me with its well-balanced taste and delightful textures. Although both pastas are a bit dry, I assume it’s intentional; personally, I’d prefer a bit more sauce. The al dente pasta texture is just right for me. The juicy Prime Ribeye Steak, though possibly slightly overcooked for 'medium rare,' remains delicious even without the sauce. The accompanying sauces are well-balanced and enhance the overall flavour. Considering the high food standards, the prices are reasonable. The staff wad very friendly too. We’ll definitely return.

Food was amazing! We ordered the Tomahawk steak and Beef wellington. The Aglio Olio Prawn pasta was good too! Serving is generous. 5 stars for the food but 4 stars for the service as it took so long to serve the food. It was not served all at the same time too… the staff are all friendly though!

Excellent food! The tenderloin is cooked to perfect medium rare! The Lemak Chili Padi Pasta has a unique yet familiar taste and the soft shell crab is full of flesh! Even the fries are good. My boy hates veg but finds the chimicurri tasty! The blue cheese sauce is great too! We had our classic crème brûlée on the house cause it is my son’s 15 th birthday. Thanks to our waiter sadeva for being so attentive!

Service was good but the waiting time for the food took quite some time even if it's not crowded. Especially for duck Wellington and tomahawk. It will be better if the dishes come together. We ended up watching one another eat before the next dish came... Saving grace was good food.
