we had a gathering of work buddies including ex colleagues at nicolas le, to celebrate birthdays for those born in Jul and celebrate our friendship going back to the mid 1990s.

the menu was specially prepared for our group of 22 pax. there was 1. poached egg in an open egg shell. the yoke was still soft like the type we get when eating ramen.

2. two prawns in some tomato based sauce. 3. scallop with prawn bisque with a wanton like ravioli in the thick soup. 4.a piece of grilled pigeon (i think so) or it could be duck. its red meat. 5. a piece of pork tender grilled. almost like wagyu from looks. 6. assorted cheese. 7 coffee plus a birthday cake (we bought from Paris baguette) with added ice cream provided by the restaurant. we brought our own alcohol.

overall the food is well presented and taste good and some favours quite unique as first time experience. the service was excellent. we were such a noisy bunch and the staff accommodated us and took good care of us including taking our group photos.

its actually a fine dining place. quite romantic. located at the fringe part of chinatown near keong siak street which used to be a red light district a few decades back. there could still be some brothels around today but i guess they are highly discreet in their facades compared to the old days where the sign was a unit number is colored red and is displayed in a light box above the entrance.:)

can come again.

Where do I start? Atmosphere was very cozy and pleasant. Excellent selection of wines as well! We had the tasting menu, each and every dish was an explosion of flavour with the components paired together harmoniously in culinary symphony.

Highlight of the dinner was the Hokkaido Scallop, wonderfully seared and served with the most divine bouillon! Just when we thought we couldn't be anymore satisfied, the friendly service staff brought over the cheeses. Wish we could've just had the whole board!

Wonderful selection and experience, would definitely recommend!

Spectacular in all sense of the word, from food to service. Chef was extremely accommodating. Staff was professional and attentive. Food was heavenly and creative. A must visit. Have been here many times and will certainly be back again.

I am lucky to lunch at Nicolas regularly as my boss is a fan of this small restaurant near Keong said area. We tried the dinner for my friend birthday, 8 of us. The menu was superb, we opted for the 4 courses at $78++. This menu is normally not available on Saturday but the manager said it is okay to have it. The portions are just right and every dishes are full of flavors and texture. We had two btl of wine around $80, very good and reasonable considering the quality. We were surprised to see a b'day cake together with the dessert, that's was a nice attention. Great fine dining experience without paying an insane price.
