This place was quite lack lustre. The coffee was average and the service was lack lustre. The waiter/resses required prompting. And the place wasn't exactly full when I went with a couple of friends. Not a place I'll go back to, given the variety of shops available on Bridge Road.

Some great staff , very hit and miss food wise , coffee is dependent on who is on . Always a constant change of overseas staff on floor and kitchen which gets annoying when you are a regular . Go for the coffee not the food.

Good but not amazing. There is a fairly extensive menu from pizza, pasta, Asian, steak, salads and so on. Have had good meals here (noodles), but the steak was a bit of a train wreck which I couldn't finish, which is the first time in a long time this has happened to me. Service was a bit awkward as well.

I had never been to this particular Groove Train before but my friends and I had a lovely lunch on a beautiful sunny Sunday here. The service was friendly but a bit slow. Being that it was a lazy day for us we didn't mind but I did note that they weren't particularly busy so felt as if we were... More

We seem to get sucked into this joint after our mains for coffee and sometimes dessert. Coffee and tiramisu didn't really make an impact. Mousse was worse. Wasn't worth the calories nor the bill. We came by for mains several times but the menu doesn't seem to be enticing enough to keep us there. I love the buzzing atmosphere, friendly... More

After walking up and down Bridge Road and checking out the small shops, my wife and I dropped by for a quick meal/coffee late in the afternoon. Food came out quickly, reasonably nice and service was good. We had pumpkin soup and Indian chicken curry.
