    Aglio olio is really good, but skip the floats – the vanilla gelato that they add to floats is terribly bland.

    The ugly salmon cakes are indeed ugly and they taste dreadful too. Under-seasoned, and you can hardly find any salmon in them. More like potato cakes. Skip.

    Their iced lemongrass tea is such a refreshing beverage. Complementing the food very well, it gives a unique, cooling, minty kind of taste

    Best mushroom omelette ever. Egg white souffle that's a bit crispy but soft inside, mushrooms caramelised, lovely multigrain bread. Greens version? Get Ohm-melette sans bacon if you want vegetarian

    Mixed grill is good for 2. The mashed potatoes had chunky pieces, certainly not pre packed. The pumpkin pasta is one of the better ones I've had. Overall good food!

    The high tea platter is a disappointment. The cakes are dry & rock hard and we really tried to eat as much as we can as it cost us a bloody $17 for it. The tea came without label & is tasteless.

    The food doesn't look impressive but it's comforting. Better go early for brunch because they run out of menu fast. Good service.
