Kungfu Paradise

C says:

Kungfu Paradise is probably the most casual outpost in the Paradise Group. Located mainly in heartland malls (though a new one has opened in Bugis+, the renovated Iluma), this is kind of their version of a cha chan teng. It's a bit gimmicky though, with weird dish/food names like Bumger instead of burger, and Babe Rice for their baked rice. Yes...

Their chicken wings were decent, and the Kungfu Bumger, a snack-sized (but larger than a slider) burger with chicken thigh, mayo and a soft burger bun, was pretty tasty.

We went for their fusion pastas. I had the Hokkien Mee one, and A had the chilli crab. Both were ok - mine was a tad salty but pretty flavourful, but A's got a tad goopy after a while. The laksa pasta that A's brother ordered was actually the best.

They have such a large selection that you're quite spoilt for choice. Service was choppy though - they're generally polite, but also a bit blur. They missed an entire section of our order, and food arrived at erratic intervals. Quality is ok for the price (budget about $20 - $30 per person), but I'm not sure it's worth a long wait in line. One good thing is that they're open quite late (4 am on weekends), so they're a viable option if you have late night hunger pangs.

There are some interesting dishes such as the surprisingly tasty laksa vongole pasta. And overall, the food is good for the price range, but really, it’s not worth the wait. And the coffee is awful.
