Lovely place for after-work drinks. Really love the style and feel of the interior, and the drinks and food were great. I loved their take on the Singapore Sling, but their take on the negroni was also amazing. Had the gyoza and dim sum plate and neither was disappointed. Great waitstaff too!

Pretty place with fantastic service. Haven’t been to too many middle eastern restaurants but this is really good! Prices are on the high side considering the small portions. Ordered 2 glasses of Sicilian wines at $19 each which is expensive too but I have never come across another restaurant in Singapore that serves Sicilian wines by the glass.

Great ambience and staff are friendly. We ordered 3-course meal, came with one main, side, dessert, and drink. Baby Huey burger, medium beef patty tender and juicy, the bun is so buttery. It’s really delicious. While for the dessert, we choose mango jerry, coconut, and mango fusion. It’s too sweet, the texture is creamy. It will be great if it’s a pudding.
