Back when I was working in Tanjong Pagar, it’s a challenge to find a place away from the hustle and bustle of Maxwell and Amoy Food Centres,  AND not get ripped off badly for it.

Except, we did.

What started as one of my colleague’s misadventure turned out to be one of the bigger finds in my time there. Situated just a stone throw away from Chinatown MRT, it is the place to be if you are looking for a short reprieve from whatever your workday may present you.

When you enter the restaurant you can choose if you’d like the ‘outdoor’ or indoors seating. Attractive and reasonably priced lunch sets are laid out for your pleasure, from chicken cutlets to juicy ribeye steaks. As we have been patronizing them for some time already, we’ve also been given ‘premium’ membership cards which give us 50% off main courses from 11:00am-3:00pm.

Still hungry and want more after your meal? You can order some Mövenpick ice cream for some dessert. The place is also known as a decent whisky bar with an array of whiskies to choose from, and they serve archipelago beer for good measure. Of course, who can resist the lunch-time drink once in a while?


If you’re more inclined to come at night however, you get to hear their resident band, The Malt Trio, croon your post-work depression away:

 The Verdict

It’s a hotel restaurant that’s pretty sizey, so not that much of a hole there.

It’s a bit dear (set lunches start at $14.80+ with soup and a soft drink/coffee/tea) which is expected of a restaurant, but with plenty of lunch + tea time promotions, no one’s complaining!

Despite the heavy promotion, food is well-prepared and generous.

Need a place to hide from the hustle and bustle? Try this out if you want to.
