My colleague, Han Joo told me this Hong Kong-styled cafe-restaurant has rather good food. Hence Rachel and I went to try it last weekend. The restaurant appointed Hong Kong TV star, Wong Chung Chak/ Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) as their brand ambassador. They sure made full use of their contract with him – you see the dude’s face plastered over everything from their menu to the store front posters.

We quite like the restaurant’s decor and the extensive menu. The price is also quite reasonable. Food and service are average. We both ordered baked rice – a decision which we regretted as it gets really sickening when you eats too much of something that taste quite the same. Next time, we will order a rice and a noodle so we can switch around.

We enjoyed the soup and the drink. However, their specialty fries was disappointing. The different seasonings were funky, but maybe they can consider serving fries with ridges or wedges that can better capture the flavouring instead of the plain old McDonald’s fries.

It’s likely that we will visit the restaurant again as we only tried a small fraction of their menu. 🙂

  1. This has a rivalry of 旺 角 茶 餐 厅 WONG KOK CHAR CHAN TENG, which has been around for some time in Malaysia. I mean both of them. Seriously I have not tried both of them extensively but their food choices, style and taste are similar. I heard most people say that Kim Gary is better generally.

  2. if you like Kim gary, you shld travel to JB city square to eat it. everything there is the same price as in Singapore, but it’s in RM!
