It is located at the corner of the maling road. Very classical building in its original state, love the ambient. Casual, olden day feel. Breakfast price is a little on the high side. Food quality is good & beautifully presented. Great latte! Will definitely be back.

I come here on a regular basis for breakfast or lunch, and have enjoyed every single time! The food is delicious, and especially if you have food allergies the menu caters for these, so there is no need to change ingredients. The coffee is fantastic, and the chai one of the best in town. Service is usually quick and very... More

With the critics push to discredit this culinary delicacy and move on to the next foodie fad, the Maling Room persists and it is this dish that helps this elegant and trendy establishment to continue to stand out from the crowd of brunch and breakfast venues out there all over our food capital. The gelatinous texture of both the yolk... More

We stopped her for brunch and both enjoyed the experience. The staff are very friendly and make the venue a nice place to visit. We both dined on breakfast selections which included their 63 degree eggs (poached eggs cooked at 63 degrees in the oven for approx. 90 minutes). Even though these eggs are a selling point on the menu,... More

Met a colleague here for lunch at 12.30pm and the place was about half full with a few tables outside busy. Unfortunately, the acoustics weren't great to the point that my friend had to ask that the music be turned down because along with other diners and the noise on the floorboards, it was becoming unpleasant. This place I believe... More
