Decided to have dinner at Oopen despite the rows of wonderful food dished along Balestier road. This place is an amazing find. Tucked away in a corner off Balestier road; in Ibis Novena Hotel. We ordered the Lamb shank and the NZ grilled steak. The Lamb shank was first class. Tender, juicy, with the flavours at the right mix. Likewise, the steak is served better than Outback or other steak-specialty restaurants. This place is the perfect find. Ambience is good.
Only go for the buffet when it's free for you to do so, otherwise it's not really worth being charged at $17 per person considering there is a very small selection of food available every morning. The choices don't vary by much with baked red beans, scrambled eggs and hash browns, along with muffins and croissants that are never off the menu Omelette hand made by the chef upon order is often very tasty. Staff are friendly but food wise, you're better off eating elsewhere.
The place is attached to the Ibis hotel and serves breakfast for the hotel guests. The breakfast spread is decent and the taste was good. The seating area was little cluttered with more people than what the place can accommodate. The breads were goof and also the dry fruits were also on offer along with breakfast. For 18 SGD the breakfast spread could be little more richer. All in all, a good choice as long as it is not crowded.
