Located in the Peck Seah St, this venue has been occupied by office workers during meal hours. Basically, the place is comfort and minimalist, but then the service is quite slow as well. Probably because they have a less number of staff to handle the customer during that specific timeframe. However, we still enjoy our meal here.

  1. The bar staff at this place was professional and their drinks ensured us a fun night in the city. I can't wait to go back. Most of the negative elements of going to a more popular place are avoided here; the staff at venues in Chicago was really mature and respectful.
