For years, the so-called hot tea with milk has been a total disappointment at its outlet especially "tea shi" (meaning tea with carnation milk) ! It is no better than its counterpart "tea with milk" from MacDonald : totally no taste of Lipton tea. Rather, it has the lousy after taste of faint Milo plus some third class coffee so... More

There are many choice of food you can choose. The place is clean and the food quality is acceptable. The best thing is the price. I could have the chicken rice, desert and ice tea in only SGD 6.5.

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food at Kopitiam during my visit at The Central Mall. The beef was tender and delicious. I never expected that the meal will cost that cheap especially in a shopping mall food court.

Kopitam is a chance to eat local and eat large. Huge range of stalls and payment is by Kopitam card - get one at the dispensing machines at the front. At meal times the dining room can be very, very crowded and this is part of the vibe. If you see a paper or a packet of tissues then that... More

Great little counter in the Kopitiam. One of many different counters. The soups are excellent and cheap. The lady who was at the counter was very friendly and helpful. She recommended returning for the roast duck. Open 24/7. Beer is available at some of the counters. Ducked in there one day during a torrential rainstorm. A soup and Tiger beer... More

This a food court, so it is not the place to go to for fine dining. However, you do get excellent local food at very low prices.

Even the prices in the Cruise Centre Top Floor near Vivo City / Harbour Point is nearly 10% cheaper than the rate here in Kopitiam Bras Basah. There are scope of having greater variety is also there.

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
