... especially of the key ingredients. Hardly any cheese in the cheese, tomato and cucumber sandwich. Coffee was good though. Nice deco and soft music. They don't serve water but still charges 10% service charge.

A perfect place for good coffee! Elegant and efficient. I tried black coffee and it was not too strong and not too light. What is "Fika"? It is explained neatly on the table. Service was friendly and efficient ...

This restaurant occupies a corner shop space and is not difficult to locate. The cuisine is Swedish and an added advantage is its halal certification. Indoor and outdoor seats are available. Dinner was the hot Blueberries soup (could be served chilled too). The mains was the Herb-entrusted Salmon on a bed of mashed potatoes and beetroot and the Chicken Sausage... More

Very disappointing! After having walked around looking for a dinner place, we finally came to this restaurant. Besides, this place came recommended by my journalist friends too. When I asked for hot water to take with my medication, I was told that they do not serve it. After having mentioned I would gladly pay for it, I was then served... More

The food here is actually quite good, the portions feel off. I ordered a salmon sandwich, which was delicious, but that was all that came out and for the pricing I would assume a side or two would be included. If they either made things more a la carte or added some sides it would make this restaurant more attractive.... More

Good food and good ambience for groups. Make sure you get a reservation for large groups. My only gripe was the credit card and NETS machine was down and we had to pay for 7 people with cash.

We booked a reservation for 2 however the restaurant did not receive our request. But they still gave us a table outside. The food was good. So many variety to choose from. And everything that we order was amazing(or maybe because we were hungry :)

Went there for lunch with colleagues. Was promptly brought to our seats at level 2. The decor was really nice, creates a homely feel. Even though our group was quite big (total of 16 pax), the serving speed was quite good. Can try out their Pannbiff and the salmon.

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
