We take up the corner coffeeshop at one end of Casuarina Road.
At peak hours, parking can be challenging as there aren't many lots here - coupon parking is available along Old Upper Thomson Road, and free roadside parking along residences if you find a rare empty lot.

There's a bus stop right behind our restaurant, and you can take buses 163, 167, 169, 855 & 980 here. If you're coming by train, catch bus 169 from Ang Mo Kio MRT Station - it's just a 15 minute bus ride.

We tend to be busy at both lunch and dinner on weekends and public holidays, with an average queue time of 30 minutes.

We highly recommend coming down on weekdays, and apologize in advance if you have to queue - but we make sure the food is worth the wait!

Our Most Raved About Dishes
Har Cheong Gai
The perennial favourite among our regulars and new faces alike... we've received high praise for our Prawn Paste Chicken. The secret to our crispy, delicious crunch is 85% pure shrimp paste and a generous dusting of corn flour.
"The best that we've had in Singapore."

Chilli Crab
A Singaporean tradition... our regulars love our value-for-money crabs, and especially enjoy the enormous, succulent claw meat. Don't forget the fragrant, toasty-outside, chewy-inside mantous to mop up the rich gravy.
"Their crab dishes feature big, hulking crabs for a price tag more reasonable than other zi char and seafood places."
Yahoo Singapore
Birthday Noodles (Mee Sua)
An old school classic that you can't find in most places, Birthday Noodles are a different take on Mee Sua. Fried lightly and sprinkled with a spread of fresh seafood, you'll want one plate to go around with every meal!
"The noodles do not clump together and are fried with generous amount of prawns, squid, beansprouts and quail eggs."
