Farah Diana $15 Steamboat & Grill Review

Came across this post on Twitter a week ago about a $15 halal all you can eat steamboat and grill and I was like OMG I REALLY HAVE TO GO. I immediately made a reservation on Thursday 27/4 at 6.30pm.

Here's the big deal: Farah Diana Steamboat & Grill's $15 promo is back till the 30th of April and they are one of the best. halal. steamboat. and. grill. restaurants. in. Singapore. I've only heard good reviews about this place and they also have 4.7/5 stars on Facebook. Farah Diana originally specializes in catering and wedding services, and their steamboat and grill is just part of their extension.

Farah Diana Steamboat & Grill was originally located at Sembawang, but they moved out earlier this month and relocated to 285 Changi road, hence the promo. Their new restaurant has super clean toilets (of course), a prayer room, is very near to the MRT station  (5 minutes walk from Eunos MRT) and also very spacious. You don't have to worry about accidentally spilling your soup on the uncle sitting behind you!

As now is the promotion period, the restaurant is taking reservations and has a sequence timing of 4.30pm - 7.30pm, and 7.30pm  - 10.30pm. During non promotion periods, the price for the all you can eat is $22 and $15 for children 5-12 years old. Still pretty reasonable compared to many other places that charge above $25 pax.

I had pretty high expectations when I first heard about the restaurant, so I am delighted that Farah Diana managed to exceed all of them. My friend and I had dinner around 6.30pm, so there wasn't much of a crowd except for another group of students seated next to us. Initially we wanted to seat outside because it was cooler (and he wanted to smoke), but the tables were reserved for bigger groups so we chose a corner table instead. Surprisingly the interior of the restaurant was not stuffy at all and there was even a little bit of wind. I was wearing a bomber, mind you, and that tells a lot!

You're supposed to make payment at the counter before the staff set up your table. They only accept cash at the moment, so be sure to have some ready. The staff then asked if we preferred chicken or tomyum for the soup, and proceeded to set up the gas stove.

We made our way to the first table where the appetizers were and filled our bowls with fried rice and noodles. They also have this super sedap keropok, some traditional malay kuih and watermelon slices. The fried rice was cold since it was probably prepared over two hours ago, but delicious regardless.

For the main course, you can have beef or chicken (they don't serve fish, sadly) which is deliciously marinated, fresh and didn't have a strong smell. The food was also covered due to hygienic reasons, so you don't have to worry about the flies contaminating or laying eggs on the food. Ughhh.

For the steamboat they have the usual stuff: leaf vegetables, tofu, seafood (crab, prawn, scallops, mussel, squid) and other yummy ingredients.

Their homemade chili and sambal is also amazing; not too spicy but strong enough to taste the flavor. Free flow drinks are available too, and you can choose to drink either Milo (Milo paket juga ade!), Sejora, Coke, Sprite, Heaven & Earth or Fanta.

Another bonus to my dining experience was the music. Besides playing Malay songs, the restaurant also plays popular pop songs if they see that their customers are mainly teenagers or youths. The staff have good music taste and Spotify premium, so YAY NO ADS!

After we had about 2-3 rounds of the main course, we had ais krim potong and ice popsicles (better known as 冰条 during my younger days) for dessert. I was really excited to see my childhood favorite at the restaurant and shamelessly sucked it dry.

Farah Diana Steamboat & Grill is open daily from 4.00pm - 11.00pm (till 12.00am on Friday, 2.00pm - 12.00am on Saturday and Sunday).

And to those who say halal food aint good. Boo to you! You obviously don't know what you're missing out on!
