Who serves up prawn cocktails these days, let alone T-bone steak, chips and peas? Well, Colbar does, and loyal fans love them for it. The place, looking for all the world like a glorified tin shed, is locked in a time warp (circa 1956), and that’s just fine with us. The cooking isn’t great – on a recent visit, the poached eggs ($5.50) were the texture of cotton wool, and the sausages ($9) a touch mealy, accompanied by wooden chips – but it’s all cheap and good, and just what the doctor ordered after a hard night’s partying. At our breakfast, the next table cracked open a bottle of beer to go with their omelette – it’s that kind of place. Word to the wise: there’s no air-conditioning, just lazy ceiling fans, so be prepared to shvitz a little when it’s warm outside.
its been round since the mid-1950's, under the same ownership and its packed full all the time. 'nuff said!

went there for the first time for lunch this noon and i must say it felt like i did my stomach extreme injustice. the food totally sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you find that food from Han's is 'okay, coz no choice', then please please please stay away from this colbar. and i must say the food (if one must call it) is overly priced.
