Okay lunch - Edit

Overall a decent lunch option, although a little pricey for what's on offer.
Had a mixture of rice, noodle and hotpot dishes, and some healthy roll (which wanant healthy). The food was pretty tasty although I could still taste oil in my mouth an hour after leaving. A great selection.of food, I would recommend to try and catch it when the buffet is on as may be better value

Pros: Choice , Location

Cons: Not that healthy.

Food So So, Portion Small - Edit

Ordered curry chicken rice, they used baba curry powder to cook, heavy curry powder smell, was hoping like japanese curry rice standard but wasnt. The other was kou rou bento rice. Taste avg. The kou rou was herbal braised soup. Not any taste of braised sauce. The sotong ball was very small, should have got the bigger ball. Lastly the peking duck was quite a disappointment for the price of $15.90. Used huang jin duck and merely cut 8 piece mini size and not cut properly, carrots and cucumbers are thick in sliced. Sweet sauce is alright, but seriously price should match with the portion and standard.

Pros: Good Service, Friendly Staff

Dining at Lao Di Fang again ... - Edit

If you are near Dhoby Ghaut MRT and need a nice and reasonable price meal in quiet environment, head for Classic Lao Di Fang.

I always think that this restaurant serves up Taiwan-themed food, maybe because of their frequent appearance in the Charity Fairs back in late 90s selling Bubble Tea in a unique long plastic colorful container.

This used to be my favourite Vegetarian Eatery when they had an outlet in the North. I often went for the simple and easy-on-the-pocket comfort food like a congee or noodle or snacks or bento sets and enjoy the feel of dinning in a cozy causal restaurant environment.

Lately, revisit them and find that their wide menu selection is still the same and the food tastes almost the same and still delectable. The prices are still reasonable in this era.

When they were a situated at Chinatown and Queen Hotel, the letdown was poor service. Apparently, the new staff at Park Mall provided much better service - so I am a happy customer again. They even offer me a glass of plain water when I did not order any drink (FOC) but I just declined it.

Spicy Noodle @ $5.50+ was what I ordered. It is flavorful with lots of mock meat which I loved (made from mushroom stalks), corn, veggies. The big pot of noodle like "thick Ramen" but not, is chewy. The broth is spicy and with fresh lettuce added to it. Perfect! It helps to absorb the chilli oil.

It might be an ideal and cozy place for something like gatherings, where you can dine and have long chat without much distraction
