The restaurant has an intimate and cozy setting. The staffs are very hospitable, which makes our dining experience very enjoyable. We had the epicurean 5 course set and the food are awesome! We will definitely be back again, with our friends and family!

Truffle Mac & Cheese, Scallops & Sticky Pudding was nice! Swordfish steak was ordinary. Servings were rather small regardless small/big plates. A little pricey!

The night started well with attentive service, good chill music and tasty lamb. Then it got progressively worse... The already small menu had items unavailable for the night, both food and drink items. What's worst, the music evolved into something of an 1130pm club play...More

Painfully long wait for our orders, over 30 minutes for dessert, no follow through, and they didn't even handle the bill properly. Bunch of amateurs, frankly. Nice setting, but no professionalism in service.

We used to love going to this quirky, unique restaurant but oh my, how the standards have fallen! While much of The Disgruntled Chef's (TDC) menu remains in tact post-takeover by Harry's Group (ugh!) the quality has fallen somewhat and the service was utterly appalling....More

Went there for their lunch set. The service was great, very personalised service and friendly waiter. They even decorated our dessert with happy birthday wordings, because I input "for a birthday celebration" while making the reservation through chope. However the food was rather disappointing, not...More

We have the 600g wagyu beef for two which comes with two sides. We have the gratin and the mushrooms which are delicious. I would give it a 5 star if not for the overly quiet restaurant. Good for couples who want some alone time.
