Atas feel with good food and excellent service

The "meatball" in the pasta was so solid. We enjoyed the magic mushroom as well.

Super love the mango smoothies that we had during our first visit months ago that we ordered 3 cups! For our 2nd visit, my kids remember and wanted to order but it was sold out.

Pros: Option with no onion garlic clearly labelled, Friendly staff

Cons: Expensive, Dimly lit restaurant; not used to it

Great Drinks, Ok Food

Nice dinner date night spot. Great selection of wines, juices, and kombucha. The vegan Absolut pasta was pretty basic and the Tandoori Skewers were about average as well. Vegan apple crumble dessert was very good. The drinks and dessert selection are what would bring me back. Would like to try again and hope for better food experience.

Visit the restaurant recently after a long hiatus. Service was impeccable. Most of the items in the menu can be requested to be allium free.

Pros: Lots of options, Good variety

MEDITERRANEAN Vegetarian resturant

This is a staple go to for us . They offer good variety of mediterranean food with relaxed vibe . Great to go with friends mid week , the house wines are excellent .

We love the meze platter to share , and highly recommend the salads . and the lemongrass corn fritters ! Desserts are not quite so tempting but we rarely have room to fit one in as portion sizes are generous .

Cheap street parking nearby and a short stroll form Holland MRT .

Pros: relaxed vibe , good range of dishes with specials board , excellent house wines

Cons: service occasionally tardy

Amazing food but expensive

All of the food is vegetarian and most menu options can be made vegan — the menu is very clear about what fishes are and aren’t vegan. The waitstaff is also able to make almost all of the fishes vegan if you ask.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Expensive

Good food and environment

Vegan option is available as stated in the menu! :)

I love eating here due to good environment but the price is really at the high side. Once in a while treat yourself a good meal as you deserve it :)

And the food standard is quite consistent. The chef has so far never failed me.

Pros: Expensive

Cons: Good environment

expensive but very tasty

Very comfortable, waiters are helpful and give loads of advice. The food was also excellent, I shared with 3 friends. But be prepared to pay around 40 dollar per person.

Good food but expensive. Limited vegan options

It has mediterranean fare (pasta, pizza, falafel, risotto etc) on the regular menu and a no meat burger / wrap on the weekday set lunch menu.
The food and service is very good but expensive. A proper meal for 2 without wine would easily total SGD 80.
Most items use dairy and / or eggs. They are marked on the menu and some of them can be made without them.
The cheese is not animal rennet free and so is not vegetarian. Sometimes they do have one or two rennet free cheeses but its not often. The servers would tell you which cheese, if any, is rennet free. There is no vegan cheese option.

Pros: Good food, Good service

mediocre food, overpriced

Had the mezze platter, broccoli pasta and pomerenate salad.

Heard a lot about this and was excited to try it. Sorely disappointed by the quality of the food. Perhaps previously when there were less vegan options in other restaurants, original sin stood out. And terribly overpriced as well

Fortunately there are now many restaurants and cafes that have vegan/vegeterian options that taste better and are better value for money.

Doubt I'll ever return.

Ate here with my husband on 11th April 2012 for his birthday. We shared a haloumi starter - beautifully presented, tasted good but so many different flavours detracted from the haloumi. For the main course I had moussaka. It was OK but unexciting. My husband had an asparagus, mushroom and ricotta tart. Again it was OK but very bland and the tart was too deep and the filling mushy. Add to that a side order of garlic bread, 2 beers and a bottle of water and we got very little change from $120. Most of the food was Mediterranean and Mediterranean food should be flavoursome and exciting. This was not.

Pros: No fake meat!, Staff friendly but not over attentive, Food OK

Cons: expensive, Lighting dismal

A trip to Original Sin

tuated near Holland Village mrt, Original Sin stands out as a restaurant that caters to health conscious customers. The menu offers mediterranean cuisine that is an ideal diet that Naturopaths recommend to patients.

I came here during lunch time in which they offered a lunch set ($27) which consisted of a choice of smoothie/soup of the day, main course, brownie for dessert and coffee/tea.

I chose the Tropical smoothie that consisted of dairy milk and banana. The smoothie tasted diluted (not enough addition of bananas) which was disappointing.
The Meditarranean wrap was good, the dressing of balsamic vinegar complimented the salad and the wrap. Ingredients were fresh and the wrap was crispy.

For dessert, was the brownie with ice cream. What could be improved in the menu for Original Sin was to clearly list the dairy free and gluten free options as df and gf. It would make customers more clear of what foods are free from dairy and gluten. Also, description of the brownie was not in depth in the menu, for diet conscious people they would be interested to know what ingredients are in the brownie instead of asking the staff.

Service is attentive and fast. I recommend this place when you are at Holland Village.

Overall rating: 7.5/10

Ambience: 4/5

Service: 5/5

Food: 3.5/5

Pros: Friendly staff, Healthy, Quiet

Cons: Price
