    I'm actually quite surprised that a few of my friends have never heard of the franchise "Botak Jones."

    We decided to meet for dinner at the Clementi outlet. As usual, the place was crowded. We had to wait for 20 mins before finding seats enough for the group of us.

    I ordered Cajun Chicken and we shared a plate of cheese fries. The chicken wasn't very tender but it was full of flavor due to the spices that were used in the marinate. The good thing about this dish is that it's really quite healthy considering you get a piece of chicken breast without any fat and it's full of protein. Just what I need! The cheese fries was a huge letdown. When it arrived, the cheese has thickened and it wasn't a nice sauce anymore. I guess it's still edible but the texture just does not feel right in my mouth. Have to admit I felt really disappointed..

    Most people usually don't finish their food but I was real hungry that day so I had no problems whatsoever.

    Price-wise I think it was reasonable considering the serving size. I think people with a small appetite will have a hard time at Botak Jones. They will leave feeling guilty considering that they will never finish their food! (=

      This outlet is the first time I've tried Batok Jones. Heard alot of good comments about it and maybe we got our expectations too high.

      Set in a hawker centre, the environment is dirty and due to the crowd there, we sat near the dustbin which made it even worse. Menu looks too cluttered and we took some time to order our food. Customers for that outlet of Botak Jones seems to be few at that time of the day and that time is certainly not a good time for eating heavy western food in great or should I say humongous portion.

      Not much of an impression of the food there though I should give credit as the Fish and Chips was nicely done. I found the sausage too salty though and nothing special except its size. Meat seems to be the better prepared type of food there.

      Not too bad but nothing special too. Given my small appetite, I don't think that will be the place I will frequent as even though the price is value for the portion size, its still expensive if I cannot finish the food.

        My umpteenth visit to Botak Jones, but this time round it was to the Clementi outlet which I've never been to. Located at a small coffeeshop just opposite Clementi central, it was madly packed when my gf and I arrived at about 615pm. So much for trying to beat the crowd.

        Botak Burger - Having eaten the Botak Burger at least 4 times, I'm not ashamed to say that I don't really see its draw anymore. And the beef patty still made me nauseous after a few mouthfuls even though it did come across as slightly juicier this time round. The bread was a little dry and hard, which made things even worse. I guess I'll stay off this for a bit.

        Fish & Chips - Now the fish & chips exceeded expectations taste wise but the fish was rather thin under the crispy batter. This dish was quite a pleaser when warm, but once it turned cold, it became almost unpalatable as the batter tasted of reused oil. So be warned.

        $12 isn't too expensive for a considerably decent meal, but factor in the wait time of 20-30mins and its a forgone conclusion, for me at least. I guess I won't be back anymore, especially when the prices have just increased.
