We dropped in there for a snack and a cold drink at about 6.30pm on a Friday night. The night markets in Jonker St were just kicking off. The cafe itself was not very busy at this time. We'd been recommended to go by a restaurant owner in Singapore. Service was very slow, and provided in a very dis-interested manner.... More

After a friend of mine recommended the place, we went there for lunch and a drink. It all seemed ok but once we ordered the food it took forever to arrive. As somewhat usual in Asia, both dishes were served with 15 minutes between them, not allowing us to eat together. Worst thing was that the food was cold and... More

We came with high expectations on a Friday night. We were told that they are busy and the food will take 30min. We were okay with that. After 1 hour, people who arrived long after us received their food. The more we asked, nothing happened. No apologies and no one cared. After 1.5 hours we cancelled our orders and went... More

We had some lovely nibbles with our drinks. Service a bit slow though and not quite the usual local friendly standard.

Not much else happening on Jonkers Lane on a Monday night so we went in here and enjoyed it a lot. The singer was excellent and her back up 3 piece band was also great entertainment. Lots of chicken, pizza and pasta dishes on offer but not much for meat lovers. No bottled wine - only by the glass. Ok... More

Not much to say. I had a couple of beers while listening to a below average "band". The staff are pleasant and the beers reasonably priced. It was well placed for watching the slow moving crowds of the night market.

Conveniently located on the corner of Jonker Street with a large outside terrace. Ordered dinner. Fresh coconuts arrived warm at our table and did not taste fresh at all. Nasi Lemak was sticky and the boiled egg that was included was of questionable quality, greenish of colour and with egg white that was solid like plastic. Sate was ok but... More
