Out of all honesty, I think the standard keeps on dropping over the years, and it's really nothing to make noise about and to pay $19.00 for chicken rice while you can get it for $3-4 at a hawker centre???? Furthermore, it's not like the service is excellent. I've been there a few times and really, if I'm not entertaining or it's not the middle of the night and I am lazy to think where to eat ... I really wouldn't go back.
Here's what I had with Satellite and Eve the last time we were there! Bak ku teh, nasi goreng, chicken rice and a ceasar salad with chicken rice chicken ... weird combo by the way ...
And if you do drink there, it's worth it to get the mixed drinks that come in the bottle .... awesome!

Cappadocia Café Restaurant is a Mediterranean cum Turkish restaurant situated at Robertson Quay: 11, Unity Street, #01-12, Robertson Walk, Singapore 237995Tel / Fax : 6732 2411
Santouka is a popular hokaido style ramen shop in Japan which is now located in The Central @ Clarke Quay, #02-76.The regular ramen - Miso, Shoyu, Shio, Karai Miso are going for about $12++ per bowl, char siew ramen (with same flavours) is about $15++ per bowl.
The prices are ok, but the shop is really small, I think at max you can probably fit about 30 people inside.
I was with some friends so we basically each had one type of ramen! I couldn't really determine what all the hype was about, as I found that it was comparitive to other ramen joints that I have been to. I ordered the Tokusen Toroniku Ramen the house speciality with kara miso. Tokusen Toroniku is roasted cheeks from the pig's head; it is very tender and tasty (this is the only differentiating factor compared to other ramen shops). They only have enough to serve 80 servings of tokusen toroniku each day and when their soup runs out they will close early. The meat is served separate along with the condiments for the ramen.
