Han's is a much-loved household name in the Singapore dining scene, Its success dates back to 1977 when the popularity of the Han siblings' cakes amongst their friends inspired them to open a bakery along Upper Thomson Road.

Han's is a much-loved household name in the Singapore dining scene, Its success dates back to 1977 when the popularity of the Han siblings' cakes amongst their friends inspired them to open a bakery along Upper Thomson Road. On my foodie parents' recommendations, I found myself at their largest cafe-cum-bakery restaurant (15,000 square feet), at Great Eastern Centre on Pickering Street. My mum used to work in the area and I thought visiting this outlet with my parents would fill them with a sense of heartwarming nostalgia. As Han's began its existence way before I was born, I thought paying them a visit with my parents would be a good way to contribute to the memory project.

Left to right: Teh-Si, Mushroom Soup, Garlic bread

No meal at Han's is complete without Teh-Si or Tea with Evaporated milk (S$1.70). It tasted really pure and wholesome; I think it's one of the best teas I've ever had.

We also had some Mushroom Soup and garlic bread. Alas, the soup was really sour and tasted straight from a can.

The garlic bread was (literally) hard to bite into, let alone chew. It felt more like biscotti than bread, though dipping it into the soup did soften it a little.

Chicken Chop (Set) — S$12.80

I loved that the potatoes came in wedges rather than fries. Furthermore, the meat was lean and tender, giving rise to a commendable texture. However, the vegetables tasted really raw and were difficult to chew — my jaws got tired after a while.

While I initially felt they were stingy with the sauce, I was later glad they went easy on it because it was excessively salty. Overall, I would recommend going for something else.

Grilled Dory (Set) — S$9.80

Grilled Dory topped with garlic

Fresh dory fish is difficult to find these days. Liven up its flavours with a spritz of lemon (each serving generously comes with half a lemon rather than the usual slice!!) The fish had a soft and pillowy texture, and the portion was sufficiently satisfying. I couldn't help but notice that the vegetables took up 50% of the plate's surface area! This should appease workers in the area pursuing a healthier lifestyle.

Service at Han's was iffy — no major mistakes but don't expect a warm welcome. The Han's dining experience is built upon functionality rather than frills, and is probably best-suited for quick, casual gatherings with friends and colleagues. Certainly no intimate dates or formal gatherings as the atmosphere is nothing too fanciful and the food is, frankly, below average.

I like this Hans outlet a lot as it is huge and comfy... dining in or even sitting in for a drink can be a very good experience, and it is a very nice place to chill and chat with friends too. If I'm near the area, it's quite nice to go for  a coffee and cake, and to laze around in the nice environment.Their cakes arent exactly very nice, but once in a while, it is fine to not indulge in expensive and high end cakes.

The Kaya cake is the only cake I like in Hans, and I have to say they make one of the best kaya cake around. Smooth and rich with layers of kaya and cream chiffon, it is pleasing and refreshing especially when eaten chilled straight out the fridge. This is a must-have cake in Hans, highly recommended!

The Chocolate Rum Ball is a forgettable one. With no tinge of rum at all, it is just a plain chocolate ball. Could feel no efforts in getting any rum taste in this pastry, needs to be improved, if not maybe they should not call this a rum ball.

Was wanting to have some simple snack before continue my shopping trip.  This restaurant is small but stipp quite comfortable and cooling.  Service was fast and friendly.  For merely $3, I manage to grab a piece of coffee nuts swiss roll cake and a cup of coffee here.  Cake sponge was quite hard and too sweet as well.  the coffee cream was too little and it wss really dry during every mouthful of it. Coffee is fragrant and with generous amount of milk inside.  Still not too bad for a quick snack

Late for lunch with my colleague. To find a place to have lunch in CBD area you have to be early or need to find a place with bigger seating area.
And we decide to go to Han's at Great Eastern Centre. The place got a big seating area.
Their special for the day is Grilled Salmon Fillet. Order a set at $15.80. Come with a bowl of soup, coffee or tea or juice and dessert. (fruits)
The qunce will start form if you come in late. But they are fast in their order taking as there a service person to take your order first before you reach the counter. Those who want to seat next to the window, be careful the table are shaky.
The food came fast within 10 minute.
The salmon meat is thick and juicy. Worth the money.
Soup base is thick also.
For the coffee is bitter. Minus point for this item.
Fruit is normal.
Overall. Okay place to have a casual or business lunch.

next, to the main dish..
the fries are like truffle fries,
thicker than the normal fries and crispy too!

however, the dory fish is kinda dry, but it's thick and goes well with mayo, tabasco or chilli sauce.
had tried going along with all 3 sauces and all taste good.

do give it a try when you are here.!

This place is really huge and can accomodate a lot of people. Ordered the fish and chips as i was craving for western food. It was not bad as the portion of it was very big and filling. Took the set meal and i love the soup. It was the best soup i have ever had for a long time. They served the food quite quickly too and we didnt have to wait for too long as i was starving by then.

Value for money - this is how I would describe the food from Hans. Ordered the fish and chips set meal which consists of a soup with garlic bread, main course (fish and chips), drink and a piece of fruit ( watermelon) for only $9.80 (no service charge and gst inclusive). However, I find that the fish and chips is kinda oily. As the restaurant is kinda big, it is quite easy to find seats even during lunch time.

I ended the meal with an Earl Grey Raspberry cake from their bakery section. The cake presentation look like hotel standard but taste is not up it. It is not bad but does not have the nice cream filling and texture of those 5 stars hotel bakery. At least the price is about 1/3 those of top pastry shops.

Overall the gourmet dishes we tried were good and affordable at less than $15 and nicely presented.

I believe this is the biggest of all the Hans restaurants. It was separated into two section, one for dining and the other a cafe. The few times that I had been here were during the weekends or after office hours. It was very quite, not many customers during those times. If you are looking for a place to have a gathering of a big group of people, this is definitely a place you can consider.

If you are looking for a place to have a gathering of a big group of people, this is definitely a place you can consider. During those times when I was there, we had at least thirty to forty people, not including children. The staffs were very accommodating, they allowed us to sit and chat even after we had finished our dinner.
Hans has both Western and Local menu. Once I ordered the Aglio Olio (spicy) and upgraded it to a set, which included the soup of the day, coffee and dessert. It was delicious. I liked the capsicums. The set was worth it.
The cakes looked tempting too but after the set meal, I was too full to have any. Maybe another time.
