    2017 Review 2018 Review

    Access to its pre-war shophouse location is by reservation only, and diners have to commit to a pre-ordered prix fixe menu. They range from five courses for lunch to 10-course feasts, all offering good value. The main dining room is tastefully appointed to resemble a modern home, but the dishes are hardly homestyle.

    Alongside traditional dishes are creative, modern Chinese fare such as tomatoes in wasabi sesame sauce, and stir fried lobster with radish cake in XO sauce. While mostly nicely cooked and presented, there are some clear highlights, particularly its black garlic orange peel steamed red garoupa, stewed spare ribs in Worcestershire sauce and the palm sugar ice cream with pandan glutinous rice. The menus are good value (for instance, $88 for a seven-course dinner) and portions are generous.
