Their pork bone noodle, which they recommended me to try, taste nothing more than an instant noodle, and the soup was not boiled, it was warm!

SMALL POTATO is conveniently located in a quiet part of Tanjong Bungah with bus #104 access.It is family owned and very quiet most of the time.The décor is modern and good.However the staff there looks more preoccupied with mobile phone usage than attending to their customer.

This restaurant is not there anymore, which is a pity as it was good once upon a time. They want me to write some more or they won't publish this information for you.

Some friends took us to this restaurant - a hidden gem! It was so clean and the air con felt so good on a smoking hot day. We enjoyed the lunch special - rice and chicken with another side. The fresh juice was amazing. The price was extremely reasonable.

This is a Japanese style cafe that serve a good variety of food. It will cater for all from pasta lovers to those who only live for local delicacies. The serving can be a bit small if you are used to large serving but the price justify the size. Food quality is surprisingly good. There are sufficient distraction for all... More

Overall food is quick and pleasant for a hot day. Plenty of games and toys to keep the kids occupied. Value for money

Cozy environment to dine in. Most importantly, you don't have hard time to locate a parking space. Ordered kimchi fried rice which is nice but the Latte wasn't nice and not meeting the expectation. Need to practice more in order to serve a nice cup of latte. :)

It's in a residential area and not everybody know here. I get to this using foursquare. Food is not bad but a little pricey. Not too much choice on the menu. Nice interior design with many books and magazines but definitely not a place to read because too noisy when some school girls hang out here after class.

The waitress could barely understand my order, and forgot to bring my food even after she repeated the order. The portion of the food is small and is not worth the price
