This is one of the restaurants in Harbour Park. We loved the ambience and the environment there, facing the yachts and occasionally getting cool breeze winds from the sea. Check out our tea time in this restaurant.
Another restaurants set in Harbour Park. This had a better presentation in terms of the outlet’s interior and exterior. They served delicious pastas and they had amazing deals on their set lunches.
They set the noodle on fire! That was the reason we dine at this restaurant. Not because to see Fat Mum but to try out their infamous noodle on fire!
