We chanced in here early in our trip to Singapore, and were treated to a beautiful Korean dinner. It was so good that we returned some days later to try some different dishes. If anything, it was even better. The staff helped us to choose, and were taken by how warm and gentle they were. The food was full of... More

Went there for an early dinner on a Saturday. The service was so good and personalised that will definitely make me go back again. Even before entering the shop, my friend and I were greeted by a very friendly lady at the door, welcoming us to the restaurant. The lady then started recommending us some of their signature dishes as... More

5 stars for 50% discount voucher and friendly staff Drop to 4 stars for the food servings, stingy serving! Order bbq set A pork belly is very thin!

I was there today, food was really good. But what surprised me most, how nice was the lady serving me. She was so nice, if she is owner, than that's how every owner should be, conhrats. If she is just employee - she should get raised!

We stumbled across this fantastic little Korean restaurant on our first holiday to Singapore. The owners are so lovely, and friendly and proud of their cuisine. The food was fresh, tasty & aromatic. This was by far the best food we ate during the 4 days we spent in Singapore. Absolutely value for money, We had a lunch menu choice... More

I can't rave enough about the service I received here! The lady attending to us was extremely helpful despite the language barrier. Gave us a drink on the house, discount on our meal and even provided us with a free umbrella when it started to rain as we were leaving. While not the best Korean food I've had, it's not... More

I went there with my family and their prices were not worth it for the portions that you are going to get. Everything was small and when we asked for refills, the portions came back even smaller. LOL This is definitely one of the restaurants I will never patronise ever again because of the exorbitant prices and minuscule portions. If... More

The staff were lovely, the recommended some of their favourites for me to try, we were given little side dishes to nibble on while we waited for our meal, the sweet potato was delicious!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
