Went for dinner. Interior and deco were nice - very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Staff were polite and knowledgeable about the dishes too. What I liked a lot: - brown rice: so perfectly cooked that I could eat that on its own - blue crab...More

High end local food but prepared in a gourmet way. Casual setting and comfortable place to go with friends or colleagues. Food to enjoy and share together.

Enjoyed the Peranakan food with modern twist. The kueh pie tee shell was a fresh rendition of an old Favourite. The Ngoh Hiang with prawn and water chestnut was light and crunchy. For mains, had Wagyu beef rendang, buah keluak local chicken and dragon vegetable....More

Not really. They cater to tourists and locals and generally u will see the tourists better dressed than the locals! Candlenut's warm friendly service makes u feel at home no matter what u are wearing.
