Went there for a late shisha. Pointers about restn:
1) Slow and bad service
2) Only serve "regular customers" aka friends
3) Bad food
4) Mint tea is an average mint flavored lipton sachet tea instead of original mint leaves
5) Expensive

Walked out to Pahang Street in search of shwarma before a movie with a friend. Had the eggplant moutabal with flat bread for starters, the lamb shwarma and the chicken shwarma. It was good shwarma and quite good value for money. Service was quite fast at lunchtime as we were one of the few customer there. There doesn't seem to be air conditioning on the first floor, which was a shame because it was a warm afternoon.

I must say that I should be objective. Even though it was a very poor experience.
The appetizers were good. However, the service was very poor, we tried everything, to stand, scream or even clapping. It was very hard to call their attention, even though the crew is composed by 4-5 persons.
The main course, was burnt! Really burnt! As the pic shows... Ah... And I forgot to to say that one of our friends asked for a lamb kebab and after an hour of waiting, they said that they didn't have anymore lamb... Really really bad.
Don't recommend anyone to come.
After complaining quite a bit, they said that the food was for free... I'd have much rather just to pay and have a good and pleasant meal.

Terrible service, so-so food, bad atmosphere, pricey.
Need I say more? Singapore has so many great restaurants that going to this one was a complete waste of an evening. We got the name from the Rough Guide, and am going to suggest they take it out of future books on Singapore.
