“Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

Great spot, authentic, cool atmosphere, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Really enjoy this place - no nonsense, good value food and beer.

“No Frills Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

If you want a great, cheap chicken curry with no frills the come her for lunch. Massive selection of beers to wash it down and a bit of history with the building as well. I was a regular customer.

“Authentic character and fantastic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

Don't expect a luxurious setting and table service. You order at the counter, grab a beer from the fridge and the food arrives shortly at your plastic table and chair. It's as simple as that, however, the food is amazing (we had a mixture of UK kids meals and Chinese for the adults). It's a very social affair and a step out of the the norm by Singapore standards.

“A great break from the norm.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

Do not go expecting gourmet food and wonderful service. Instead select the beers yourself from the fantastic range in the fridge. Order up a sausage sandwich or fish and chips with mushy peas and curry sauce and then keep an eye out for mosquitos. Then sit down, consume and enjoy.

The food is simple and honest and the staff are friendly and helpful. You probably wouldn't want to go every day but it's a great breakout from the typical formula on offer in Singapore. Will definitely be back. The beers in particular offer exceptional value.

“Simple food with a rustic setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2013

A good get-away from the city but not too accessible by public transport. Since its move from its original location near the Ayer Rajah Expressway, its present location is not obvious from the nearest road. Food is OK. The bottle of cider costs S$11, while food (curry chicken and fish & chips) costs S$21. This is relativey expensive by Singapore standard. Atmosphere of a laid-back life-style is evident. There is plenty of greenery. A good place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.
