Went there for a late shisha. Pointers about restn: 1) Slow and bad service 2) Only serve "regular customers" aka friends 3) Bad food 4) Mint tea is an average mint flavored lipton sachet tea instead of original mint leaves 5) Expensive

Terrible service, so-so food, bad atmosphere, pricey. Need I say more? Singapore has so many great restaurants that going to this one was a complete waste of an evening. We got the name from the Rough Guide, and am going to suggest they take it out of future books on Singapore.

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.
