As we stepped inside we were greeted by a friendly and smiling waitress who took us to our seats and provided us with some menus. Not long after, our waiter (well, he wasn't allocated to us but he served us most of the time) came and said hi, asked if we have been here before and explained to us that they serve Asian fusion. I asked him for recommendations and he gave us about five and was actually able to describe the dish to us. I liked that! We ended up ordering three of his recommendations the first time round (yes we did have a second round because hubby wasn't full) and just trusted his recommendation on our second round of ordering.

Food and presentation - 4.5/5
The food at Apple Daily was delicious, now where should I start? We ordered all the street food snacks that our lovely waiter recommended and we were happy with all of them. He did warn us that the oysters were a bit salty but still really good and he was right, the oysters were indeed a little salty but they were plump, fresh and the nuoc cham sauce went well with it. The pork and oyster roll was really tasty and the saltwater duck was basically Peking duck with buns instead of pancake and that was yummy too.

Service - 4.5/5
If they didn't forget to bring back our water, I would've given them 5/5. All the staff that served us were friendly, polite and hipster. Our waiter in particular was fantastic, friendly, professional, polite and knew his stuff. The waiters checked in on us at appropriate intervals and our food came out relatively quickly.
Atmosphere - 4.5/5
Love the atmosphere. You still feel the buzz of Print Hall without being in the crowd. It was nice sitting upstairs and looking down at the sea of people below getting drinks at the bar and enjoying their Friday night. There were only the two of us so we didn't get to sit in the booths but they looked nice and comfy. My only complaint is that it was really quite dark in there, the perfect lighting seems to be hard to achieve, well my perfect lighting anyway because I need to take photos!
My dad would flip out if he knew how much we were charged for a a few slices of duck and a few buns but I thought it was worth it.
Will definitely be back.
