Rocky Master is a homegrown brand with several casual dining outlets in Singapore serving gourmet coffee and affordable Western and Asian food. It caters to the office workers with their outlets located mainly in business parks and office complexes like Biopolis, Alexandra Technopark and Mapletree Anson. Rocky Master Tai Seng is one of the newer outlets of the chain.
Located on the ground level of 18 Tai Seng, a nine-storey mixed-use development comprising retail space and offices, Rocky Master Tai Seng looks bright and spacious. The interior space has a clean minimalist feel and the full height glass panels on 2 sides of the cafe let in plenty of natural light in the day.
Rocky Master at 18 Tai Seng operates as a quick self service casual diner. Orders and payments are made at the counter. A buzzer, handed to you by the cashier, will go off when your food is ready for pick up. There is no service charge and GST is included in the prices shown in the menu.
Rocky Master Menu
Rocky Master Tai Seng offers a fair selection of cakes, pastries and beverages. The menu offers Western dishes like burgers, pastas and baked rice. Asian dishes, like laksa and mee siam, and fusion fare have been added to the menu.

Lunch at Rocky Master Tai Seng
There is currently an exclusive promotion at Rocky Master Tai Seng where you can order a main course and and get a free lemonade, or a bottled pure pressed juice with a $1 top up. We ordered a Laksa Spaghetti ($13) and opted to pay $1 extra for a bottle of cloudy apple juice. We also ordered a Chicken Satay Charcoal Burger ($13) and took advantage of the weekday lunch promotion to have a cup of hot coffee at just $2.50.
Laksa Spaghetti came with a few larger prawns and pieces of fried tofu. The spaghetti was cooked just right. The laksa sauce was creamy with a nice mix of spicy flavours. It did taste very much like a milder version of the traditional Singapore laksa.
The Chicken Satay Charcoal Burger looked interesting. The chicken patty was tender and the satay peanut sauce paste was good. On the whole, it was not bad but I would probably enjoy a usual beef burger and a separate plate of traditional chicken satay more.
We had both the hot coffee and the iced coffee ($5) to go with a Swiss Roll ($3.20) after the mains. The coffee was good. The Swiss Roll with the soft sponge and rich creamy swirl was surprisingly good. It was a sweet ending to an otherwise fairly average lunch at Rocky Master Tai Seng

Rocky master rocks….that’s what I thought..until I ate at the Rocky master Fraser Tower branch..early morning..when I drop by to buy muffins..I noticed the female lady was preparing some sort of drink..it was lemon tea because of lemons and tea leaves..I saw she uses hairnet…believe me..hairnet to sieve the tea leaves from the tea!!! Oh gosh…I was shocked! Is this how Rocky Master makes lemon tea? Couldn’t they think that the hairnet might have some chemicals or that the fine strands of wool might contaminate the tea! Whoever come out with the stupid idea? Isn’t it enough to use a siever? The experience at Rocky Master Fraser Tower made me lose confidence in how roçky master prepares it’s products.
