Shiok! Singapore Kitchen offers a selection of authentic Singaporean food in a casual and friendly environment. We hope you will enjoy our home-cooked flavors and find it a Shiok experience too.

Singapore is a multi-ethnic society made up of Chinese, Malay, and Indian, whose immigrant forefathers brought with them rich food traditions from across Asia.

Typical Singaporean food is thus an exciting blend of culinary heritage based on some of Asia's greatest cuisine. This combination creates a unique and dynamic flavor more lively and far richer than the traditions from which they stem.

    We ordered a bunch of dishes and all were bland/tasteless unfortunately. It’s been a while since I dined here but the flavors are all gone. The Laksa was weak and had mostly curry powder and not enough ‘Lemak’ as us Singaporeans would say. The peanut sauce with the satay was bland - not made with peanuts but peanut butter. Sambal Kangkong was just sautéed with some chili paste - tasteless and disappointing. The only dish that was the best in our order was the nasi goreng. Not worth the price tag.

    Very bad food. Everything was drenched in Oil. Coconut Prawns - had no coconut on them and oil was dripping from them. Very tiny portions!!! We paid over 150 for 3 people and all three left hungry! Service is good and staff is attentive. There food needs to improve by miles.....

    Great value for lunch specials during week in otherwise pricey neighborhood. Excellent service and pleasant quiet ambiance. Beef rendang was tender and flavorful, not spicy. Friend had the poached chicken which seemed a bit dry and less tasty. Would still enjoy going back to try other lunch dishes instead. Bathrooms are located past kitchen area in back.

    Our first visit My wife and I shared the samosa, chicken satay, the Singapore Prawns and King Ribs It was a busy Saturday night with two large party tables. A little too high ambient noise level but tolerable The staff could not have been more pleasant Overall, the food was average and typically overcooked We know Singapore street food very well having spent a lot of time there. This was not acceptable. Shrimp had a good flavorful sauce but tough shrimp, the ribs were bone dry and very hard to chew. The Satay was similarly dry and overcooked, Very reasonable prices but we will not be back

    Celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday here for the noodles and Singaporean food as a new treat for him and my son. Delicious food: loved the Sparerib King, chili prawns, roti with curry sauce and char kway teo noodles. Gracious service. Owner came out to greet us and check in. They’ve been a Menlo Park mainstay for over 20 years. Lovely place for an intimate dinner. We will definitely return and call ahead for the Singapore chili crab dish.

    Service was extremely slow. Parties that were seated after us were served before us. Took 40 min until we got the first dish we ordered. The food was a lot lighter / bland than expected. Dinner was unfortunately a bad experience, but I've had better lunch in the past here.

    Service was terrible despite the restaurant being full. The food has been very good in the past and don’t know what happened. The lamb chops were dry and over cooked, the beef and peppers were served cold and the dish tasted like it was reheated and not fresh, the chicken satay was also dry and over cooked. Very disappointed!! Will not come back anytime soon.

    Our favorite place for Singaporean/Malaysian food in the Peninsula. It's slightly pricey but you pay for the really attentive service and great ambience. Food is great, the only thing lacking is, if you're from the region, you'd probably find they don't put enough sambal by default. I must remember to ask for extra chili!
