About Shiok Singapore Kitchen

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.

Delicious food - but jeez - does every single thing have to come out at the same time (on the prix fix menu)??? Terrible pacing.

To be fair, my standards are higher because I lived in Malaysia and Singapore for many year. However, in comparison to similar fare in South Bay, Shiok is quite overpriced. Two skewers of satay are priced at $7? In addition, when asked about the Hainanese chicken rice, the waitress couldn't give us the information we wanted. I would recommend Merlion in Cupertino instead. Nice ambiance, solid (not amazing) food, great service, and very affordable.

the restaurant was quite good; especially the vegetable side dishes. it was very noisy and the tables are so close together that it's difficult to get in and out of your chair.
all in all, I was a place I would return to.

We had the laksa and the chilli crab. Both sated my cravings, but could have used more heat. I was delighted that the chilli crab came with fried buns. I was disappointed that the calamansi juice wasn't fresh. If I'd know that, I wouldn't have ordered it. All in all, a friendly, laid back atmosphere and good food.

It was the same old thing again at Shiok! -- fantastic food, great service and a warm, comfortable feel.

My wife and I have been looking for years for an "our place" in Menlo Park. After many false starts and disappointments at other venues, we have found our place here at Shiok!

Hope to see you there.

With just a little extra effort, this could be a neighborhood gem. Little problems with each dish: the Beef Rendang was made with cheap dry meat; the Chicken Satay was overcooked; the lettuce cups were flavorless and had an inelegant peanut sauce that tasted like Reese's Pieces. But spice was good and flavora, when present, were well balanced. Our waiter was the bright spot in the experience. Very gracious. Made us feel like a guest at his dinner party. Excellent customer service from him.

Absolutely wonderful food. We had the special which gave us six items: appetizer, salad, 3 different entrees and dessert! for $27 a piece! It was such a treat, we ordered a take out dish the next evening. It will become a regular event in our dining out!

Went there around 6pm on a Friday. It was still a bit slow but by 7pm, it was getting full. We had small kids and other tables had kids too. Food came promptly. Portions were a bit smaller than we expected for the prices and considering they said the dishes were meant to be shared family-style. Overall, taste was good, especially the Shioking Beef. But we specifically asked for the green beans dish to not be spicy since it was being ordered for little kids, and we were assured that the vegetarian version we were ordering was only going to be flavored with soy sauce, but it still came fairly spicy with red peppers. Clay pot rice dish was good but not really clay pot...just rice with toppings simulating as if it was done in clay pot.

The roasted eggplant got a 10, duck with noodles a 8, curry salmon a 4 (skin on salmon), and service, quality and presentation, a solid 8. It's a nice change from other Asian restaurants and certainly is healthier than all the fried and oily food one finds a Chinese-style restaurant. Figure about $30 per person. Would I go back? Sure, maybe in a year.

Portion is small. Some of the food are ok, some are mediocre.
Shiok cancelled our Open Table reservation while we were dining, even though we checked in and acknowledged by the hostess upon arrival. It was resolved after several attempts from us. Recommend to check your Open-Table-point after dining.
If you are not local, won't recommend driving there to eat.

Disappointed with the food.
Roti was overcooked and greasy - seems that it was reheated from pre-made.
Steamed seabass was tiny, for $18, I was hoping for something bigger than McD pattie size.
String beans were good.

Overall subpar - would not go back, and do not understand the rave ratings.

Delicious food. For a group, we each selected an entree or appetizer, and just shared everything . That worked very well. Two desserts for our table of 6 provided just the right ending to the meal.

Came to this place several times already. A small cozy place so it'd be better to have reservation if you bring a big group or for peak times. I tried many different dishes and liked most of them. Especially any of their noodles are addictive in addition to their famous Roti Prata. I brought ten foodies last time and they all liked the food. The portion of each dish is relatively smaller than American standard, which means you can try many different dishes =) Most of the staffs are friendly also.

3rd time was not the charm - perhaps it was the dishes we ordered, but the appetizers were excellent and the entrees (duck with garlic noodles and a prawn dish) were not. We were much happier our previous visits. I hope it was just an off evening

We came for an early dinner. It wasn't crowded when we arrived, but the place filled up quickly. The food is good and very reasonably priced. The only complaint is the service is horrible. They needed to have another wait person on the tables. They had quite a few take out orders.
