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"

We had a family lunch on a Saturday for 4 adults and a baby. There was plenty of room and a high was provided with no bother. One of our party has a severe mik allergy (partly why I booked a SE Asian restaurant). We asked if any of the dishes we ordered contained dairy products and were assured by the waiter that they did not.

We shared the crispy duck starter, which was OK but they only gave us 6 pancakes: 2 each would have been good and the right number for the filling.

When our main courses arrived one was incorrect and we waited 10 minutes for the corrrect dish to arrive. When we asked another waiter for confirmation that there was no dairy we were told that one dish contained Carnation (condensed milk).

Fortunately the person with the severe milk allergy had only eaten a mouthfull. It could have killed him though anaphylactic shock.

The food was fine and (after I demanded it) they gave us a 20% discount off the bill.

Will we go back there? Never.

Probably the best Hainanese chicken that i've had in London so far. Unfortunately nothing in London will ever likely match the standards in Singapore / Malaysia, but Bugis pretty much hit the spot with the chicken. The flavour was there and the chicken wasn't too dry like many establishments in London. The rest of the dishes (char kway teow, kangkong belacan) were good but not outstanding. The Ma Poh Tofu was a little too sweet but still tasted good. I wouldn't recommend the Shanghai Dumplings which were quite dry and sticky. The desserts were ok. Good and polite service. Prices fair for West London. I would probably return for the chicken but not for the other dishes.

We decided to give this place a try after a brief trip to Singapore where we only ate Japanese/Chinese food. Because of Singapore's location their food is already quite influenced by neighbouring Asian counties, so it's hard to choose dishes that are truely Singaporean in style.
While the food was good the dishes we picked weren't that satisfying. It left me wishing I had picked some of the other things on the menu instead.
Dessert selection was a bit thin, but the banana fritters were a nice treat.

A great find, enjoyed the food with the family. Have a wide ranging menu and service was very good. I would recommend the noddle dishes, but the Dim sum platter was slightly over cooked. It a nice place for causal dining with friends or large groups.

Some good Singaporean dishes were sampled; not quite with the authentic flavours of a hawker market in sultry Singapore unfortunately. Nonetheless in a city which lacks good Malaysian and Singaporean cuisine it's certainly good enough!
