Fish Tales - Orchard SCAPE

There is a big revamp at the dining scene at SCAPE Orchard with the addition of a few casual dining restaurants at level 2. Fish Tales is one of the restaurant added to the vibe and its food menu certainly suits the young patrons at SCAPE.

Menu consist of a range of fish and chips, pasta, burgers and side dishes. And we ordered the chef recommended dish

Complementary fruit water serve at the counter and is self serviceable  

Fish Tales give me the impression of a combined long John Silver and Pasta Mania restaurant. Overall, food is good and yet not too expensive. I do not mind dropping by Fish Tales again if I am around this vicinity.

Soft Shell crab pasta $12.90  - Very tasty, the spaghetti taste abit of spicy. However, the soft shell crab is the main attraction for this dish, cripsy yet not oily. Highly recommended

Beaurre Au Citron ($8.90) - Crispy fish skin served with fries and citron sauce. Dip in tartar sauce for sinful flavour that tickle your taste buds

Verdict: 4/5

Hours: Daily 1200- 2200

Address: 2 Orchard Link, SCAPE, #02-27
