My family frequently travels to South East Asia and love the variety of food. We were very happy with the dishes we ate at Bugis and found the taste very authentic.
Staff were very friendly and we were able to eat at a leisurely pace. We will be returning.

I was impressed at the speed with which dishes arrived - though my friends did start ordering a few minutes before I got to the table - and the tables were generally big enough to have an array of dishes on without taking over!

The Chinese New Year menu had some great dishes e.g. mushroom the moss looked like "hairball from a drain plug" (''~) BUT standout was the Hainanese(?) chicken with rice & garlic dip!!

I opted to have Pu'reh tea because it seems more appropriate than a glass of wine etc.

Very pleasant décor which gives character but doesn't distract from the food.

It's a nice simple Asian restaurant. Good friendly service and very clean. Excellent chicken satay but the Singapore Laksa was very different from the genuine article in Singapore. It looked pretty much the same but tasted quite different.
I would go there again.
PS nice pub at the end of the road.

There aren’t many Singaporean restaurants in London so we were keen to try Bugis Street. The food is good, although the menu includes a lot of more Chinese and even some Sechuan options and there were a lot of Singaporean classics that weren’t on the menu unfortunately.
Service is friendly and helpful. It is however clearly a hotel restaurant and that is obvious from the size and decor: it’s quite empty and not the warmest of atmospheres.

A surprising find. On entering you think this is a cafeteria as it is minimalistic. However, don't be fooled. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food was exceptional. Well cooked and presented and it tasted wonderful. I will definitely return and I have recommended the restaurant already to family and friends. (PS - I marked the service down due to the eagerness to clear the plates when one of our party was still eating. I saw this was eagerness to please and not trying to get us to free the table. I would say it is a cultural thing as I experienced the same thing when I visited the far east.)

Great food. Salt & pepper tofu very nice. Haienese chicken rice was very tasty. A good selection of vegan dishes. Desserts are authentic and takes you back to the real bugis street in singapore. Clean and quiet even though the place was full. Waitress was very friendly. A must visit

As usual, great food, excellent service and good advice on portions. The dishes are perfect for sharing, with some highly spiced dishes blending well with some simple dishes. Drinks like chinchow/Tiger Beer and Singapore Sling fit perfectly. The salt and pepper king prawns and squid are out of this world! The traditional dessert, gula Melaka,
is the perfect “soothing” dessert, after spicy Singaporean food

Opted for the weekend set lunch menu. Dishes came out fairly quickly suggesting fair amount of pre preparation. But on the whole the food is flavoursome and the set menu price is great value. Service was quick and efficient. Definitely a cafe feel rather than a restaurant.

We were a group of 4 and chose the al la carte menu. The laska which had been recommendended via Jay Raynor's column was very disappointing and lacked both depth and flavour. Overall the food was very tasty.
Extremely popular at lunch time . Just the sheer amount of customers meant the staff were working flat out but from being seated to taking the actual order did take some time and we had to call someone over in th end.
In hindight should have chosen the cheap set luch option which looked very good and was obviously easier to cater to on a busy day!

Good surrounding. A nice atmosphere, not too loud, but neither quiet and boring (we went at lunchtime between 12 and 2). The food was good and the tasting platter was excellent. There were four of us and we all had a separate main course. I would have been better if the main courses were shared. One of the same thing for one person was I thought too much.

Considering the very good reviews I had read I was disappointed with the quality of the food, nothing like the same as in Singapore and more like a mediocre Chinese takeaway.

Lunch with wife. We had Singapore Laksa and Nasi Goreng. Both dishes were busting with flavor and cooked to perfection. Service was first class. Will definitely add to our go to places when revisiting London.

The restaurant is in a square room in the Millennium hotel and had the feeling of a canteen, very spartan. Service was professional and rather brusque. Tofu satay was light and lots of satay sauce and mixed fried vegetables not at all greasy. Seasoning too subtle so not much flavour. Not a place to linger but probably ideal for the hotel guests prior to evening out. If you're in the area fine for quick meal but not worth a detour. Low point is bottled beer at £5! Two beers and three plates at £42 not a bargain and considerably more than it would be in the actual Bugis street.

Quality of food as gone south - no care in terms of the way how it was cooked. Dry greasy, soup not warm and had to request a hotter version.
The fried rice noodles were made from hydrated rice noodles, too lumpy and sticky and too greasy.
Regret not returning, sorry had high expectations not fulfilled.

The set up is typical for a small SE Asian restaurant - the clientele was largely Asian reflecting the quality of the food that we were very impressed with. Four of us had grilled dumplings, deep fried prawn rolls, Penang char kway teow, Singapore laksa, duck, and beef char kway teow and drank Tsing Tao. Noise level was quite high but we could still hear each other without problem.

We intend to return - many more good things to try from the menu.

Clean and airy restaurant. The Singapore Laksa was excellent. The desserts were very good. For a Singaporean brasserie the wine served was very good. Service was polite and fast. The place could get noisy when full. Plenty of choices on menu. Busy so a good turnover of food.

The STARS that I gave are NOT correct. My issue is with YOUR Open Table. Which is a total LOSER and total RUBBISH
The restaurant DID NOT receive my reservation
I received an email message the DAY BEFORE requesting whether I was going to the restaurant
I replied of course.
My family - 4 of us do NOT live in London.
We made the journey to the restaurant and they have NOT received any notification from you.
The manager said that he has ISSUES with OPEN TABLE and that this NON communication with them from your firm is NORMAL
We had NO table, we were to prepared to Wait as we had another appointment to go with
FINAL RESULT, YOUR FIRM IS RUBBISH AND EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW THAT ANY DISAPPOINTMENTS IS ALL DUE TO YOUR RUBBISH FIRM
SO GO AWAY - NO MORE OPEN TABLE - better REBRAND IT AS "RUBBISH TABLE"
