There is nothing special about the food at this place; the only good thing is that it opens until 2am. The menu focuses on drinks (i.e. milk tea/bubble tea, slush, sherbet etc), Taiwanese and Korean cuisine. We’ve had a gigantic birthday party at this place back in second year (with over 50 people attending). Service was decent at least, but we do have a personal negative stigma attached to Classics. As for the food, it’s very mediocre. It has the same problem as Sushi Ya – acceptable as home-cooked food (you won’t call this crappy junk food), but it is not passable for a restaurant standard. Food is relatively cheaper than other restaurants, but I really don’t think it’s that great quality.

Red Bean Milk Green Tea
A bit oversweet and bland for a milk tea. I’m not sure if the red bean was put into a blender because I do see little sands of it, just don’t expect to see any red beans in this drink.
Pork Thick Soup, with rice
This was on the Taiwanese menu side. It had way too much cornstarch. It has sesame oil, black fungi, shiitake mushrooms, carrot, cabbage, fried shallots, and battered pork pieces in it. The pork was not great – most of the pieces were fatty pork pieces with barely any meat on, and the few pieces that had meat were very tough. It was also quite bland for thick soup; I had to ask for pepper for the soup. Honestly I wouldn’t even call this a proper thick soup, it’s just not right.
