Mad Nest, East Coast

Mad Nest Singapore
If there is a proverb to describe Mad Nest, it is “jack of all trades but master of none.” The very long and confusing menu lists Italian, Japanese and Indian cuisine, all of which were competent but none was outstanding.

The three of us shared sashimi moriawasa (3 slices each of tuna, salmon and swordfish, $18), unagi kabayaki (grilled eel, $20), sukiyaki (Japanese hotpot, $15), butter chicken ($13) with naan ($2-$4 depending on your choice of stuffing), chili crab pasta (with soft-shell crab, $21), and ended with tiramisu ($10). Including alcoholic drinks we spent about $45 per person, rather affordable considering we ordered so much.

While the food was so-so, the concept of the restaurant isn’t bad. Mad Nest is owned by the same owner of Mad Thai, just down the street. “Mad” means “Making a Difference,” and this place features art by local artists. This joint is good for large groups of friends and family who live nearby and want to chill out.

  1. i have to agree with you on the proverb. my friends and I walked in one weekend, browse through the menu and walked out after 10 mins. the weird combination of cuisine got us all confused. dont think ill give it a try anytime soon…


  2. The Mad Nest sounds like a great place for a food trip. After all, having too many dishes on the menu is great because you get to try something new. The fact that they feature Italian, Indian and Japanese cuisine is a plus for me. I might just check this place out considering that the prices are also reasonable. Thanks for sharing.
