I love the chilli chicken. It was tasty, tender, and nicely charred. The beef strips could be more tender. Oh, and the corn & onion sides was grea too. I've been eating here for 2 years. The food is always good.

Good selection of dishes. Flavours then to be on the stronger side, so if you prefer something lighter this might not be the place for you. Portion for rice and sweet potato porridge is decent. Portion for the dishes slightly more expensive given the portion size.

Liked the pork chop, grilled pork belly and burnt chili chicken. Suppose to be famous for their Lu Rou but I wouldn’t order it again. The cabbage also wasn’t great. But the real star was the fried mushrooms and potato. Could do with less salt/seasoning but still good

The food was rather salty and oily. Those who prefer strong tasting food will love the food. The sweet potato porridge was rather unique

Ambience + Food was good, was plesantly surprised to find it less crowded than expected and hence, found the environment very conducive for a good conversation with my friend.

A Taiwanese-themed restaurant that served authentic and amazing Taiwanese food that are value for its price. Would definitely recommend their burnt chilli chicken 2.0, seafood porridge and taiwanese sausage patties. Red tea and jelly dessert was pretty decent as well!

Everything was great! Except the dessert. One of the ingredients, either the jelly or pearl, was warm. The cream was good. Overall the dessert was not cold. I would like it more if its served in shaved ice. Thanks!

Prices are affordable and the service was excellent. It is a good place for a small gathering. The food portion was huge and tasty especially grilled meats and crispy chicken.

Had the burnt chili chicken 2.0, sweet potato congee and bok choy. The chicken was especially good, flavourful and tender. Prices were fair, considering portion sizes and restaurant locality.

Good but overpriced. Service was confused and poor. Very noisy in the evenings. The lunch sets are okay but not dinner.

I am very disappointed with The Salted Plum. Obviously, reservation system is not up-to-date. I made a reservation for 23 Dec, 7.30pm and was excited to have a nice xmas meal with my friends (since this was our first visit, and we've heard so much good things about this) but was appalled to see that the shop was closed for a staff retreat from 22-25 Dec. As much as i understand that this retreat was deserving for all the staff, why are the customers not informed of this closure and worse still, allowing the system to take in reservations for the block-out dates. What's best was, I received a reminder on 23 Dec on my reservation (to remind me to not be late and that the seats will only be held for 5 mins - perhaps this system should also remind The Salted Plum to set their 'out-of-office' message instead of all these irrelevant emails to disappointed customers). And now i am submitting this feedback because this morning (24 Dec) the system triggered an email to request for my feedback, so here you go. In a gist, this incident clearly portrays/reflects the kind of customer service that your restaurant withhold. Thank you for such a wonderful evening.

Great service- the waitress even took the initiative to help us to exchange our can of unopened white grape for a colder one after we have left it unopened for some time so that it would taste better! Interesting porridge with gin added! The burnt chicken, braised pork, Taiwanese sausage are superb!!

Food was good, but most of it was served luke warm. I felt it would've tasted better if the food was piping hot. We got the porridge with the Monkey 47 gin, but the gin was not well flamed, and left the porridge tasting slightly bitter. Service was OK, could be better but they responded quickly when we wanted to change an order. At times there was a slightly language barrier but it was fine in the end. Recommended dishes: - Brussel sprouts - Burnt chilli chicken - Seafood porridge

Burpple Set for 2 was a very good deal and value for money. The portion was sufficient to feed 3-4 pax. Food and service are great too.
