5 reviews of Singapore Orchid in English
My sister and I fancied a break from cooking tonight and decided to venture out to try a new restaurant. After a little bit of research on the internet, Singapore Orchid promised authentic Singaporean food, specialising in hawker (street) food, which we enjoy. The on-line menu looked promising and we ventured into the wilds of Surrey
The food itself was solid – sar ho fun (broad rice stick in an egg gravy sauce with meat and vegetables) looked right and tasted amazing but needed some green chilli for punch. Indian mee goreng was lovely if a little spicy. We also ordered an extra dish to share – curry lamb, which had good spicing.
We found space for dessert and ordered pisang goreng (fried banana). The restaurant got the crispy batter just right.
Enough here to make us return to try the traditional steamboat one day
There is absolutely nothing here that tastes Malaysian or Singaporean. The quality of the food is very dissapointing.
Despite the variety of food tried, none was pleasing. Appears to be catered only to the locals, judging from the taste.

Being a singaporean myself, i would have to disagree. The food here is very authentic and is not catered to the locals as i travel from london to enjoy authentic food here at Singapore Orchid.

That is precisely why Singaporean food will never, ever match KL!

have you forgotten this is a SINGAPOREAN restaurant?
JJugs, 3 August 2012:
Yes, that’s why it’s crap!

Great. Enjoy the sub-standard quality that you are so accustomed to.
