Tasty food at an affordable price for those who are on vacation for a relatively short period of time.The service from those who do not speak English, as is customary in Singapore, was negative. But whoever did speak was very helpful.Ok atmosphere, nothing out of this world. I was full.

skewers were a hit or miss, some of them were well seasoned, while others failed to cover the gaminess of the meatthe golden pumpkin soup was great and packed full of ingredients, fish slices were fresh toofood was okay for the most of the experience, though prices are very inflated.

Nice clean place, we had some nice chicken and beef skewers and they were perfectly seasoned and grilled. Together with some veggies it was an ideal lunch.

Could be overly rated. It's my 1st visit & I must say it's a little disappointing. The name BBQ Box seems to suggest it's Forte is the BBQ, but it is totally not true. For the meat to feel even slightly warm, maybe an hour. It's totally ridiculous. Thought that the sticks of meat are pre-cooked, it is cold & hard.In fact, all other dishes somewhat taate better than the BBQ.Very high chance I will go elsewhere if I am serious about BBQ.

Food nice and not too oily as another outlet. Didn’t reserve table and there empty table for 4 pax and the waitress didn’t hesitate and allocate 2 pax of us on that table. Unlike other restaurants will wait till 4 pax only occupied that table. We order upon sit on it and food serve pretty quickly and they didn’t pressure us leave but we also don’t want occupied the place when we finish eat. They act very fast clean the table. Feel impressive their professional service. Will definitely visit again and hope they can main such great service 🙂

Food is affordable and nice!The seasoning on the skewers is just right, not too bland and not too salty. The best was the potato skewers, the potato just absorbs all the flavour!Highly recommend their pigs ear with cucumber as well as their 酸辣粉 (sour & spicy noodles)!

The staff were extremely unhelpful and rude. It was obvious that as tourists who were unable to understand the procedures, the staff were standing around seemingly making fun of us and doing nothing to assist. They may as well have thrown the food at us! Pity, as the food was tasty.

Got recommended to try BBQ Box which received quite a lot of hype for their skewers, however it was only alright 🙁 Food came out quickly but it got cold super fast 😭 The heated stove thingy was suppose to keep the food warm but it didn't help much at all 😅 The only food I would recommend would be the Eggplant 🍆 Price wise is super pricy and the skewers are quite small, does not really match the price point 😔

The food provided there is very delicious, especially the meat skewers, which are grilled just right and although a bit salty, they still taste good. I highly recommend the waiter here. When I dropped my chopsticks, the waiter immediately replaced them with new ones. This waiter is very attentive and attentive. When each of us couldn't reach the food, he carefully adjusted our seats so that everyone could reach the food. So it is very safe to dine here. Thank you to this employee, Jia Ling. Will come again next time.

Still as good as nice! Been to afew different outlets! Highly recommend.

Quite decent North eastern China style skewers with plenty of varieties in the menu. I like the young lamb with red switch (红柳枝羔羊), grilled pork jowl , squid tentacles, applewood beef skewers, grilled shiitake & oyster mushroom. Having the piping hot skewers accompanied by cold beer was a perfect combination !
06:28 04 Nov 23
Food standard is quite consistent with its other outlets. This outlet is smaller though.

Good BBQ skewer and good service, service crews were attentive and immediately changed beer bottles b4 opening to cold one or change chopsticks when they noticed our 🍻 bottles are warm or drop chopsticks

Not bad for BBQ sticks but pricing us quite expensive, upper Middle price. Ordered bbq mutton sticks (spicy, very nice), chicken lung (not bad), spinich with vinegar (best so far), mushrooms, and also the 酸辣粉 which turns out to be more Ma, not spicy not sour. Overall ok, ok place to hang out with friends. Hot tea can ask to add hot water.

Rating: 4.2 / 5 stars🤩 : Range of offerings, strong tasty flavours🤧 : PriceyMy partner and I spent over $80 (after tax) on a dinner here. It still boggles my mind how we chalked up that bill. That said, it was a memorable experience that we found relatively good.To start, this place has three floors of seating. I hope this brings some hope to those who intend to walk-in during peak periods. As we arrived fairly early into the evening, we had no issues or wait getting a table for two. We appreciate the wide variety of options for skewers and non-skewer products. Ordering was conveniently done online, which is great for such large menus.After order, food started arriving in batches after the 10 min mark. This was a fair waiting time.Here are the highlights from our evening:* Cold noodles - passable* Male flavoured skewers (pork/beef/chicken) - strongly flavoured and not particularly spicy* Anything New Orleans-flavoured - must have, especially the mid joints* Chilli oil dumplings (红油抄手) - good enough* Potato slices - addictive* Tofu skin - very salty but incredible flavours* Regular meat pork/beef/chicken/gizzard skewers - great, cooked just rightI suggest requesting for a dry spice mix (干碟) to add another layer of complexity to your meal.Will be back, when my wallet recovers.

Taste of food was passible. If you are looking for real China Chinese tasting chuan Chuan, this doesn't really come close.Cost is on the more expensive for what it is. But then again, you don't really have that many choices if this is what you want to go for in SG.

I am a regular customer of this store. The food is as delicious as ever. It is my second restaurant. You can eat with peace of mind. The store has a wide range of dishes, you can eat a lot of them, and they taste great! Super delicious! Strong Amway! !

Food is good, although can get boring after a while since the same spice is used for all the skewers.

I was surprised by the quality of food, as I had been quite skeptical just by looking at the menu. Would recommend to try their spicy dishes, because they have the Sichuan-flavor. Good place to catch up with friends and drinking.Not a representative of Singapore Chinese food, but it has good Chinese food. Recommend a visit if you crave for some good spicy stuff.

Restaurant very well located, we were two people, ordered food with the phone scanning the QR. The service was fast and correct. The food very well: 2 Chicken wings, squid tentacles, grilled pineapple and sweet potato, 4 fresh prawn, 2 shitake, 2 long bean, chives, bean curb and 2 lemon tea, the bill 73 SGD

The service of the food was quite fast. Found the grilled chicken and pork skewers a little more on the salty side but overall still very well seasoned. The oysters were cooked to perfection.

Thumbs down for the Beer only. ❌❌❌Very weird system whereby all 4 bottles needs to be placed on table till it turns warm. Current promo is every 4 bottles gets a special price so its a must to order 4 btls.Granted, they will help to replace it with a colder 1 from their fridge (frm picture, its just a small fridge) but the turnaround wont be able to match the bottles to be cold.I'm someone who goes for Cold beer and because of this beer system, i wont be going back.Service was good tbh, the skewers were also nice.Prawns were fresh and the Mala chicken wings was nice also.

Usually had the ala carte. Ordered the 2 pax bbq set this time round. Quite disappointing. The portion of the cucumber cold dish (mixed with vinegar and chilli oil) was way too much, steamed dumpling 12 pcs was normal, not hot when served. 2 x Drinks at $4- we had only iced water 😏 The grill doesn’t seems to work well, supposed to keep the bbq items warm but did not. Have to wait >30mins for the grilled eggplant; they have missed this item and it was served only after we reminded them a second time. Used to be our preferred outlet in pre-covid days. Not now, it was a Tuesday and the whole place was noisy and crowded.

Food was good, but really salty. Price was decent, we ended up spending around 28 per pax and left super full. Went around 7+ on a weekday and didn't have to wait for long before seated.I would really recommend the beef tendon it was one of my favourite ones!

A quaint little Chinese restaurant selling grilled meats with mala sauce. The mala is not at all numbing and spicy so I guessed they localised it to local flavours. Service was very fast and some meats are quite exotic such as pork brain (grilled?!), pork ears and pork tongues. We over ordered as we were all ordering separately on our phones. The beef stripe was quite good.
