Visited this cafe for lunch and was pleasantly served by Li Mei.She is patient, accomodating, detailed and knows her menu well to recommend it well. She was detailed and efficient in serving and ensuring we had a good dining experience. A great place for a taste of local food coupled with excellent service. A place that makes dining a pleasure.

Extremely generous portions that can be shared between 2. Always on promotions make it extra sweet for those on a budget yet want to dine in a lovely setting.

Great fusion menu of SE Asia and a lovely place to escape off Orchard Road. If you are looking for a place that is quiet to relax, share a light meal or be romantic or just have a business conversation, this is a great place for all! The spicy crab dip with sweet buns and the chicken rice are recommended.... More

The Island Cafe is exactly that. And Island of calm on Orchard Road. Soothing decor, great service and lovely food. There's a good mix of Western and Asian food. I chose the Mediterranean salad and carrot and ginger juice. Both awesome.

Oh gosh, ain't it all slick now with a nice sliver of a view of Orchard Road surrounds. The perfect lunch spot to rest and catch up from the hustle and bustle before you re-enter urbane civilization. The good stuff is all there still albeit a tad more expensive. I went for the crab tang hoon (my fave for a... More

The island cafe has been a longtime favorite for my family & this year they underwent renovations to remodel the cafe. The menu has changed slightly as well and has become more westernized instead of a localized menu. That being said the food is still delicious & come in large portions- the chicken rice is a must try!

Now I would not have step into here knowing that they charge exorbitant prices for hawker food It's a nice place for a good conversation with friends but not for meals please Overall food is moderate and service is mediocre at its best For that kind of prices , we could be better off with much fancier cafe around orchard

Food wise i think is decent, a cosy place to meet up with friends over food. Friendly waiters and service is quite prompt. They had a peanut butter milkshake just like the one i had in sydney.. Though a tad to sweet nonetheless enjoyed it very much.
