Has anyone tried the new swedish restaurant @ arab street ? Swedish restaurants in singapore are very rare and i've been craving for the meatballs available in ikea. Any reviews so far ?

I've been there once and never again. The food is decent only but at the sky high price that they are charging, tt's better to take a cab to ikea and have your meatballs there.

Their meatballs are tough and tiny. Cakes were normal but really expensive. Service was so-so.

You may go try them for yourself and perhaps you might have a different review.

got the cheesecake from there once. it was delicious, though expensive at 6.90 per piece. never tried the meatballs yet. unsure if i will! but it's the only Halal Swedish place in Singapore ive seen before, so maybe one day i might.

Been there twice and both times its because boss wanna try. don't think i will go there on my own, too expensive and the food is only so-so. the meat balls are very tough and chewy - all of us agreed that its not worth the money. better go ikea for the meat balls.

ikea meatballs isn't halal, tree nymph.

I guess the novelty is in that this place is halal and can cater to a wider audience.

Andaiz,
Huh... i think that's the reason. the owner is a malay and she married a swede. then seeing there's no halal swedish restaurant, she opened one... but then the meat ball is really tough... didn't remember tough meatballs while in sweden.
