I had the fried chicken wings, and the fish with onions and chilli. The chicken wings were really good with the belacan they provided. The fish was the kicker. It LOOKED like a boring inconspicuous dish but tasted REALLY good. Super authentic. The sauce is some awesome mix that I can't figure out. Location is set in a light industrial... More

Myself and two friends popped in for lunch a week ago. It was in a block of offices/shops along Upper Changi Road. The ambience is nothing to shout about but the food was tasty and the service was excellent. We had a modified form of ngoh hiang, curtle fish fried with turnip (a truly Peranakan dish), sweet potatoe leaves fried... More

Excellent service, and great recommendations! Spring rolls, a seafood-based starter and a beef rendang which were all amazing! Better rendang than the one I had in KL! Will definitely be returning!

Ive been to the airport road branch for family dinner. The taste so fantastic. I like the mutton rendang the most. For peranakan, indonesian food lovers, must try !!! The place is spacious. Baby chairs provided. And it's like a mini galery restaurant that showcases lots of beautiful photos, whom the owner is a photographer. PS: it could be even... More

We organised our baby shower party at Old Bibik, and are extremely pleased with how everything went. The service, organisation, food, and ambience were nothing short of fantastic - all our guests thoroughly enjoyed the party, and many commented that the food was really good. From the start, Old Bibik has been quick to respond to our queries, and the... More

This eatery is no longer at Lavender Food Square. It is currently located at 190 Changi Road # 01-01, MDIS Building. It is a short walk away from Eunos MRT Station and a Halal certified restaurant. There are also ample parking spaces along Changi Road. We have eaten here several times but we never get sick and tired of the... More

I am here the second time. Simply coming here to satisfy my cravings for nonya cuisine. This place is just beside MDIS, Eunos. Great food! Slightly expensive but I love the beef rendang and rempah ayam goreng. Staff is very polite and courteous too!! I will be recommending friends to here to dine more often.

Have came across Old Bibik's when walked by the MDIS building in Eunos. It is only about 5 mins walk away from the train station. Since they have been known for the rendang so I was giving their Chicken Rendang set meal as shot. Sadly it was quite disappointed. I have been eating drumsticks for the past 3 days and... More

As their tagline suggests, this is "Casual Nonya Dining at Wallet Friendly Prices" with no service charge and GST! The food was delicious - the beef rendang was sufficiently tender and the ayam buah keluak was nicely braised. We also tried the "ju hu char", which is shredded turnip slow cooked with an assortment of vegetables and dried cuttlefish. It... More
