5 Senses Bistro

While running an errand in Funan mall, we decided to settle our meal there. Whenever it comes to quality and delicious food in Funan, the first thought I had in mind will be 5 senses bistro for they had left a good impression to me.

We had the set meal and it comes with a glass of Ice Lemon Tea as well as soup of the day.


The mushroom soup was offered as the soup of the day. It was fragrant and appetizing.

We had chosen the Pan Seared Jade Perch with 2 sides of Sauteed Mushrooms and Potato Salad. The Pan Seared Jade Perch was perfectly done with a crisp layer yet maintained the moisture of the fish meat. Squeeze some lemon over to enhance its taste. The sauteed mushroom was fragrant and delicious while the potato salad was not too creamy and I like such a combination.

Pan Seared Jade Perch - $27.90

The Char Siu Chicken Thigh requires a waiting time of about 20 minutes. The charred edges and tenderness of the Chicken Thigh were even. This main was paired with Brussels Sprouts and Macaroni Cheese. 

Char Siu Chicken Thigh - $15.90

Have been hearing my pals talking about 5 senses since school days but I did not get the chance to try it till now.

The 5 Senses Bistro is setup by a team of young entrepreneurs that love exploring new cooking techniques and ingredients. The name was derive from their aim of creating food, leaving an impression on customer's 5 Senses from visual to smell.

The team also focus to create an affordable comfort food using freshest ingredients and also every dish represents their chef individually.

Live Oysters - $12.90 (6 Pcs)

Oyster was fresh and refreshing with its icy coldness.


The best way to enjoy fresh shacked oysters is to squeeze some lemon juice over and add some tabasco sauce.

The bowl of Mushroom Soup did not disappoint. It is of the right consistency and texture of soup comprises of the mushroom chunks. Flavor was mild and not overly intense, perfect!

Mushroom Soup - $4.90

Grain-Fed Angus Braised Beef Cheek was excellent. I had this classic french dish paired with Brussels sprouts bacon and homemade Green Salad as sides.

Grain-Fed Angus Braised Beef Cheek - $21.90

The braised cheek was braised till it softness that it is easily tear off with the slightest pressure. On top of that, I find that the braised sauce was rich and generous. The portion as a whole is worth the price paid.

To my surprise, the Brussels Sprouts was softer than my expectation and goes well with the braised sauce and bacon.

The Green Salad was served separately in a dish. The refreshing serving

The New Zealand Beef Ribeye Steak if 200g was Medium Done served with brown sauce and mustard. Butter glazed Brocoli & Cauliflowers and mashed potatoes were the choice of the 2 sides.

The slab of beef was not very thick but was rather flat with bits of peppercorns on the surface of meat.

The doneness was served to exactly what we wanted. Meat was fork tender and well seasoned.

The texture of mashed potatoes with fried garlic was spongy. The gravy was good, however, the texture still make the mashed potatoes feel weird.

Food quality from 5 Senses Bistro is no doubt better than average and the price paid is definitely worth the portion served.
