Happy thoughts from our Straits Chinese clients

Wonderful. Delicious food with nice service. Chef David gave us a brief about peranakan food which was very educational. Well done.

"Engaged their service for a corporate function and the food was fantastic. Guests were very happy and satisfied with the food and service, and impressed by the live station of Kueh Pie Tee, Dry Laksa and chendol. Very good service from Husband and Wife team. Thanks Kevin and Pei Xuan for impressing our guests!"

"Went there for an official high tea event!! Absolutely fantastic. The kuehs are too good. Contrary to what I read, the manager was a very amiable man"

"Great food! The dry fried laksa is AWESOME! The sambal Kang Kong is authentic to Penang Nonya. I'll come back here often!"

Review from Edward Rodrigues on Google

This was a wonderful discovery in the heart of the city. Authentic Chinese Peranakan cuisine at very reasonable prices at an upmarket locale, The Esplanade. The Ayam Buah Keluak was superb along with the rest of the dishes we ordered. The desserts were excellent as well. This place just opened in April and noone seems to know about it. A must try place. Great views of the bay and skyline and close to all the entertainment.👍👍👍
