Bugis Street Brasserie Ratings and Reviews
We didn't realize the restaurant was open for lunch, as it never looks like anyone is in the place. I had lunch with colleagues, which we thought was expensive for lunch $15+ entrees. One person had the sweet and sour chicken, which they said was good. Another had a vegetarian entree and I had a Singaporean chicken dish, which I thought lacked flavor. If you want Asian food you're better off going to China town if you have the time.
First time at this restaurant. It was very good. The steamed sole was to die for. The sauce used with it was delicious. I could eat that everyday. They have a wonderful menu with tons of options. You are able to have an actual conversation and you are not sitting on top of your neighbor , there is actually space between the tables. I kid you not! I would definitely go back and highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys good food.
It hasn't been discovered yet - the Singaporean food here is outstanding, and they are very flexible regarding special orders. The service is very friendly, but it often takes a while to get started. The atmosphere upstairs is nice, downstairs is sparse and feels a little like they haven't decided yet whether to open or not.
Came here w/ a couple of friends for lunch. Had read about their laksa (soup) being good. I used to come here when the restaurant was Sai Sai and loved it until it got too expensive, so I was expecting this to be on the high end , as well. The restaurant is pretty much the same look but w/ a multi-Asian cuisine. The good news is you can get away w/ a $20 lunch. I'll definitely be back to try some other menu items!
We had laksa, pork dumpling gyoza, hainanese chicken rice and cha koi tiao. The laksa looks good but it was bland. It needed a little salt & spicy. Pork dumpling is good, hainanese chicken rice was just ok. Rice is dry and again it needed a little salt. The cha koi tiao noodle is perfect. No salt needed there. The place is big and clean. Services is good.
My friend & I decided to try this restaurant for my birthday lunch. The food was tasty, and the servers were kind; however, the restaurant was woefully understaffed. It took 25 minutes to get our appetizers, and we had to request plates, utensils and wave down a server to pay our check. On a Wednesday in DTLA it's important for working folks to get in, eat in a timely fashion, and get back to work; so if your on a schedule, I would not recommend this restaurant.
God awful food. Just thoroughly uninspired and made cheaply. Service was below dismal. Our main courses arrived over a 15 minute period--by the time the last person's food arrive, everyone else's was cold. Asked several times to speak to the manager, s/he never showed up. Poorly run, poorly managed, poorly led place.
The Bugis is nested in busy downtown Los Angeles, California, connected to the Biltmore Hotel, and once you enter the restaurant you are in quiet setting with accents of Singapore. There is an extensive menu with a great variety for all customers. The service was prompt and the server was very informative when questions were asked regarding menu items. The food was great complemented the a warm Saki. Can't go wrong on this selection.
While guests at the Biltmore we decided to eat at Bugis Street Brasserie instead of the usual restaurants near The Music Center. We were delighted with the food and the terrific service provided by Bethany. Not familiar with the cuisine we asked Bethany to help us with the menu. Her advice could not have been better. We plan to visit Bugis Street Brasserie on our next trip to downtown Los Angeles.
Not exactly, as the prices were higher than a hawker stall, but the food was very good and probably better quality than a hawker stall. The Lhaksa was very nice. I prefer Malaysian style to Singaporean style, but they did not put too much coconut milk in the soup, it was still pretty red, with a lot of things, like shrimp, chicken, tofu, etc in the bowl.
The other dishes were very nice, a good combo of Chinese and Malaysian. The whole fish had a nice slightly sweet/garlicy sauce.
I was hesitant due to it being in a hotel, but it really is a great find in DTLA.
We went for a group lunch and the place was empty when we got there at 11:45. It took 20 minutes to get our order taken and another 40 to get our food. The restaurant smelled weird. Everyone's food was good except mine, I got the garlic sesame chicken and it was actually pretty gross. The chicken was low quality and had a really thick layer of fat on it. We had one server for a group of 17 and it was the worst service I've ever had for a group in DTLA. They gave us an automatic 18% gratuity which came out to over $50. I looked right at the guy and said "do you really think this is appropriate for the level of service we were provided?". He stammered that it was restaurant policy blah blah blah. If I hadn't already wasted 2 hours on that lunch I probably would have asked to see a manager.
I didn't expect a restaurant connected with the Millennium Biltmore to have decent food at a decent price, so we were pleasantly surprised. The fried squid appetizer plate we had was a generous portion, very tasty, and available at a great happy hour price. We then had a couple of noodle dishes. The fried bee hoon was nearly identical to some I got from a street vendor in Hong Kong, which is to say it was very good, very satisfying, and very inexpensive.
The menu is limited, but there's enough there that we'll be back. And because nearly everything on the menu is under $15, we can afford to!
The joint was pretty quiet when we were there (midweek around 6-7:00), but the room looks like it could get noisy if it ever fills up.
Bugis Street better than expected, quite honestly. Food excellent, staff very pleasant, efficient, but non-intrusive. Probably the best Sino-Asian in downtown LA area. Certainly lives up to the quality of the Biltmore Hotel, to which it is attached. Readers of this review, please try Bugis Street.
We went because we could't get into other spots we wanted to go to before the ballet at the Ahmanson. The menu was OK, but the food was really pretty similar to an upscale Panda Express. I had a Ramen soup which was fairly bland and the meat was served separately and it didn't really go with the broth and was like an odd add-on. My wife had a sweet chicken, and it wasn't any better than you get at any typical fast food Chinese place.
Add to all of this, there was an odd moment where they sat us, then asked us to move for a larger party that had reserved the spot near the window (which we weren't really bother by, but that staff kept apologizing for)...What was really lame was that the party by the window never showed up!
