“Very nice ambiance, healthy good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

The food menu here focus on healthy food and fusion in local and western food. It has a very nice internal ambiance and music, it is a great place to spend time with partners or catch up with friends.

“Avoid if possible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Attempted twice to get a meal and or drinks - the first time the service was so slow we left and on the second was told 'we are busy and you will just have to wait' fair enough but individual was grumpy - I got the feeling the café was on of those places expats, and tourists visit because they like to be seen there and will put up with the terrible service because of it - there are plently of better cafes - so my recommendation is unless there are less than 4 people there avoid it.

“For drinks is OK but food....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Heard about few recommanded dishes like tom yum soup in the coconut and curry ramen. We were there about 12 plus to have lunch and wanting to try the food but was told only open at 1pm for lunch due breakfast time was too busy and kitchen do not have time to prepare for lunch. So we went back at 1pm for lunch and ordered, curry ramen. fried rice, tom yum bee hoon soup instead of tom yum coconut due kitchen not able to prepare and vegetarian spring roll. The place is full of people for lunch as well, finally we foods come and can't wait to try the foods but to our disappointment, the vegetarian spring roll, fried rice and tom yum bee hoon taste so-so, nothing wow as for the curry ramen, noodle is noodle, soup is soup and vegetable is vegetable.

The cafe is an icon in jonker Street with the paint of yellow wall, the atmosphere is good for drink at night and there is also live band, adding some colour to the night in Jonker street.
