The 5 Tables Bistro (5 Zhuō cāntīng)

The 5 Tables Bistro (5 Zhuō cāntīng) Review

This restaurant is diminutive in size and but packs in plenty of personality. The friendly Singaporean owner is the sole waiter, yet no water glass goes unfilled; the service here puts fully staffed restaurants to shame. The menu is just one sheet of paper and on offer are one soup, one starter, a few mains, and two desserts. Dishes change frequently, so one week, if you're lucky, you'll be slurping up bacon potato soup; another will find you tucking eagerly into seared scallops paired with caper sauce and a vegetable puree.
