Last Saturday we decided to try out TFS Bistro in Little India on the back of some recommendations from friends for authentic French cuisine at affordable prices. The restaurant is open on two sides to the streets but noise is not a problem. If anything it adds to the Parisian feel of street side dining and ensures the diner is cool but not a/c freezing.
The restaurant was not too busy for us to get a table for 2 at 7pm though it was fairly busy when we were leaving.
Staff were friendly, pleasant and helpful with menu offered immediately and daily specials explained. Ambiance was enjoyable with a real bistro feel to the restaurant. The menu featured a fixed price selection from the a la carte for $32.50 with an extra charge for some items which represented great value. Orders taken, we perused the extensive wine list, heavily populated with recognisable French (and other country) wines. A number of wines were not available but owner Xavier recommended an excellent Croze Hermitage which hit the spot. Why are wines so expensive in Singapore?
Starters of French Onion soup (could have done with a couple more crouton) and smooth Chicken Liver Pate were excellent followed by a 200gm sirloin cooked to perfection for herself and a favorite of mine, Confit of Duck Leg (Extra) which melted in the mouth and was as good as I've ever tasted. Desserts of Giant Profiterrole with vanilla ice cream, smothered in chocolate and a lovely moist Tiramasu finished off a most enjoyable and reasonable meal.
All in all, the recommendations were well deserved and TFS Bistro will feature highly on our list of favourite restaurants in Singapore
