Tree Lizard @Dempsey- Never again...

This place has full of lizards. Both fake ones and real ones, small and big ones. It can't be blamed, after all it is situated at the extreme end of Dempsey, opposite of La Fondue, and beside The Disgruntled Chef. The interior is really aloha-changi-chalet-like. White walls with a few pieces of lizard deco (fakes!), ceiling fans and even a wall-mounted LED TV playing Channel 5! A super homely feeling. There seems to be a second floor, but we sat at the first floor, where there's mostly high stools and high tables. More like a bar setting than a proper restaurant.

Servers were friendly and very helpful, recommending us dishes and serving us iced water without much ado.
The Food
For the price paid, quality of food & ambiance in Dempsey area... I'll suggest trying other places in the vicinity, where they're plenty of other options.
Tenderloin Steak ($29.90)

Tenderloin Steak ($29.90)
Tenderloin was smaller than the cod fillet... Too hard and difficult to chew. It was supposed to be their signature dish. We asked for rare, but it was like medium. Side dishes were not filling at all. Just 4 pieces of fried zucchini and one spoon of mash potatoes.
Cod Fillet ($28.90)

Cod Fillet ($28.90)
Fish is nicer as compared to tenderloin, a fairly large portion as well. The lemon juice (or sauce?) provided a good companion. Just 4 pieces of fried zucchini.

However, as I said, for the price paid after the GST & service charge (a total of $69 for 2 pax), I will not visit here again for neither food and ambiance... 


Food: 2/5
Service: 3/5
Ambiance: 0/5
Total Score: 1/5
[1- Never visit again, 2-Won't visit unless there's no other option, 3-Perhaps, 4 & 5- Yes!]

Good for? Couples, Groups
