Tasty and relaxing – I've eaten here several times and always have a good experience. The menu is diverse and affordable. My wife and I always get 5+ dishes. The sea bass and chili crab and amazing. The staff is very friendly and the setting is relaxing and casual.
Just average and pricey – The food was OK, nothing special, and the portions were small for the price. We had 2 appetizers, and 3 entrees, the ostrich, pepper prawns and seabass. I felt it was not enough food for 4 people. We ordered rice for 4 and it came in a bowl as if it were for 2 people. I would look for another Singaporean restaurant in the Bay Area.
Very good asian – This is one of the best places to eat in the area. They are very nice and the service is great. Check out all the tea selections they have, yum.
Singapore Fusion!!! – This is authentic singaporean: malay based recipes with chinese cook, mixed in with some indian and then misprononounced to be something you can call Singlish. I like to look at the menu and see chicken rice SURROUNDED by chili based foods. It looks like a little yellow dot in a sea of red.
Finally, Lunch for Adults ... – I recently got the "Cholesterol lecture" from my doctor ... no panic, just eat better and exercise. I quickly discovered how hard is was to eat well for lunch. A burger with fries? Eeek!
I finally found Shiok. For $6.95 I get a tasty (and surprisingly healthy) complete meal with meat, rice, vegetable and salad. And not garbage steam table Chinese. Don't tell the doctor that we share the Roti Prata (bread with curry dipping sauce) for appetizer.
Keeps you coming back for more!! – Great food and service all round. It's authentic SINGAPORE food... nothing like your make believe fusion types. Neither is it Malaysian or Indonesian cuisine. If you have been to Singapore you'd definitely agree. Prices are reasonable. Considering the sauces and the spices that they use, well, they are to die for. A great blend of taste to boot. We tried the chilli prawns and the pepper crab and it made me miss Singapore so much more. A novel way of serving on plastic plates... cos of the "hawker-center" culture in Sinapore. I'd definitely go back.
Expensive and Not Authentic – We tried the beef samosas which had no beef. Waitress suggested that the beef and vegetarian samosas look the same. Cost $6 for 2 small-ish samosas filled with just potato. We had Hokkien Mee - not authentic Malaysian Hokkien Mee with dark sauce. This dish had barely any sauce or taste. We tried Nonya Fish - tasty but not crispy as advertised. Ambience quite nice. However, every dish was served on a plastic plate - tacky! Overall prices are ok but not worth it for the quality of food. Food arrived quickly. Service was good. There are better Singapore/Malaysian restaurants with better prices - Banana Island, Westlake and Mango Bay, Redwood Shores. A disappointing experience. We will not go back!
Fabulous food – I tried this place on the recommendation of a friend...and loved it so much I went back twice more in the same week! The appetizers (sort of tapas style) are fabulous...and the coconut rice...yummy. The dessert menu is not huge...but sooooooo good...coconut ice cream, fried bananas...I'm salivating just thinking about it. Ambience is pretty good, easy to take friends there, not too loud or anything. Service is a little lackadaisical, but the food makes up for it.
Definitely new and improved – Had dinner at shiok last night and was surprised at how different it is now. the deco is much better. love their music selection. the tapas style menu is definitely a great idea. still love their roti prata and the little curry sauce that comes with it. tried their new dish BBQ salmon. definitely not your regular BBQ dish! Their dessert menu is still too small. guess they are not big on dessert in that part of the world. Will definitely go back with some friends again.
Editorial Review – Singaporean menu features chili crab, mango prawns and other seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes; serves tea, beer, wine and more.
