Simplylife is possibly one of the most popular restaurants in Festival Walk, there is also a queue to get in. However it isn't always packed. I have been here so many times, as most of my friends like their food and I guess it is value. Hence why people always choose this as a meeting point. However the last few... More

I was here to try out their teatime sets, which I have to say are quite decent. I tried the mango tart. It had fresh cream and the mango was fresh as well. I also tried the beef burger with bacon and cheese. Above average, but nothing fantastic either. All in all, the food served here, coupled with the ambience,... More

Well, just as per the title, it was rather disappointing experience. I was hoping to get better food than this since the restaurant always has a long queue line during dinner n lunch hour. Not recommend at all .

Ok so i've been to this chain twice now, once to try the cakes and once for brunch. Cakes, these are standard and nothing special. They look nice but dont have much flavour and not cheap. Brunch, service was appaulingly slow and food was mediocre. Thats it for me, wont go here again and no i wouldnt recommend it either...

Was invited to dinner at this cosy little restaurant on the Food Street with lots of other restaurants offering indoor and outdoor dining area. The company was great and the food was equally good. Have some bread, certainly worth it. Had the tagliatelle mushrroom and truffles and it was delicious. Stay away from the pasta with mussels if you can.... More

A Maxim concept restaurant, it's well conceived with a bakery and restaurant in one that offers both a casual self serve or full service. The bakery offers a good variety of bread, pastry and cakes with sandwiches whereas the restaurant has an eclectic and delicious menu of western favourites including burger with a minimal yet well selected wine list particularly...

"simplylife" as far as I can tell from their business card has 11 outlets altogether. Though I am placing this review under their Festival Walk listing (which TripAdvisor carries twice), I actually ate at Queensway Plaza in Admiralty. Suppose circumstances are roughly the same at any outlet. My friend originally asked me to meet at noon for lunch, then suggested... More

Good service, good food, good prices. What more could you ask for? They have great dessert choices plus a variety of breads you can buy to take home.
