    Definitely recommended. Awesome Peranakan dishes with a modern twist, without compromising on traditional flavors. The rempah is so well done, which makes the flavor of these dishes perfect!

    Buah keluah wagyu is fairly tasty, the mutton rendang -awesome rempah though meat a tinge too gamey, but deliciously tender, petai sambal was sublime, blue crab curry was more Thai than peranakan 5*!

    Free flow rice and water!! Spiciness level: medium - high... A bit pricey. Mushroom goreng salad is a must try, followed by spicy stir-fried squid. Don't: do not try "The Textures of Coconut" at $9.

    Lovely peranakan place you can bring not too adventurous visitors to love the peranakan aesthetics and taste. The old and wise guides you in life (and menus). Star shaped bean salad was refreshing!

    Been here 10+ times
    Always enjoyed Chef Malcolm's food - the change to a tasting menu format really allows him to shine on flavored and plating. Must try dessert- the Buah Keluak ice cream.

    The food here is simply delicate and delicious. Good place tobunderstand Peranakan cuisine and its future. The desserts are truly superb, one of the best in Singapore.

    A delightful kitchen with many different foods to choose from. If you try grilled pork cheek and king prawns, you won't forget to like my comment ;-)

    Had 5 dishes in all, and they were all really delicious! the beef rendang was utterly "melt in mouth", sambal mushroom was interesting and the wing bean salad was surprisingly crunchy and tasty.

    Assam fish, rendang, veg w tau Cheo (fermented bean paste) were gd. Nice ambience in what was a former army barrack. Gula Melaka ice cream was delish. Strong coffee too!

    Sambal petai prawns is a dish worth trying. BUT be warned that the sambal is truly HOT!!! And the prawns are fresh and crispy. Must try.

    The crab curry was fabulous. Deffo worth the Michelin star status. Portions are a little small but worth the experience

    He ah-me-kase is definitely worth it! Very filling and a wonderful sampling of 10 dishes. For dessert, the durian one is great:)

    Excellent service, unfortunately it was way below my expectations. The food was good, but it wasn't great. We went for the full special menu and I had 2 awesome dishes, the rest pretty average :(.

    Note that the serving size here is smaller than normal. Immediately ask for more sambal, they only give a dollop. Try the Babi Pongteh, Fish Gulai, and Rendang.

    Food was alright thought I was expecting more given the high prices. While the space was lovely, the cheesy elevator music dampened the atmosphere.

    Pas aussi enthousiaste que les précédents visiteurs. Probablement à cause de notre choix de plat. Écrevisse façon Buah keluak, sorte de ragoût a base d'un fruit fermenté. Prix raisonnables. Service ok
