Hot Tomato needs no introduction as as it has been around for a long while. Widely known as a casual Western dining restaurant, the ambiance is very relaxing and it's perfect for family and friends to gather for a hearty no-frills meal to fill the hungry stomachs.I was there on a weekend lunch and although the restaurant was almost filled with families, the service staff was very attentive and friendly, greeting me with a smile and showed me to my seat.

I was there on a weekend lunch and although the restaurant was almost filled with families, the service staff was very attentive and friendly, greeting me with a smile and showed me to my seat. I would say the service was impeccable for such a casual and inexpensive casual food establishment. Coming to the food, I had Fish & Chips ($8.50) which was served with a generous amount of chips and romaine salad. No complaints about the dory fish as the egg batter was nicely prepared, forming a light crust around the milky, moist and delicate fish meat. With a squeeze of the lemon and tartar sauce, it was perfect! One thing I note is that they do add salt to their fries, perfect for those who are health conscious. *Plus points!!!* With an additional $3.50, there's a choice to top up each combo with a Soup of the Day, Drinks and Garlic Bread Set. It was great value as the Hot Tomato Soup was very appetizing and garlic bread were toasted to golden crisp perfection. My friend had the Teriyaki Chicken Chop ($8.50) which again, had a generous and huge portion of succulent slice of chicken chop accompanied with Aglio Olio and salad. Although the sauce may seem a lot, it wasn't too salty or overpowering and has a tinge of black pepper to enhance its flavour.
They do not serve ice-water so you have to top up 20 cents for it. Overall the food, service and ambiance was great considering the affordable food they serve here. This is definitely one of the place worth the visit if you're craving for great value casual Western dining!
