Magg By Royz Et Vous Review: XXL Seafood Platter And Atas Maggi Near Bugis MRT Station

29th September 2023

Magg By Royz Et Vous has XXL seafood platter in Bugis


If the name Royz Et Vous sounds familiar to you, it’s because they’re a popular, long-standing halal Western restaurant that’s been around since 2014. They’ve also devised concepts such as Pancake & Waffle Place, another halal-friendly cafe that specialises in sweet and savoury pancakes and waffles. 

Most recently, the eatery unveiled a new concept, Magg by Royz Et Vous, which offers giant seafood and meat platters, and promises to give the humble Maggi mee an atas twist. As someone whose ultimate comfort food is Maggi, I couldn’t wait to head down to sample their food.

Food at Magg By Royz Et Vous 


We started with the Ayam Bakar Garlic White Sauce ($13.90++), which comprises a charcoal-grilled chicken thigh, half a soft-boiled egg and Maggi noodles served in a creamy garlic soup with a dollop of chilli paste.


We were told that this is one of their most popular dishes, and it’s easy to see why: the chicken thigh was well-cooked and seasoned with a subtle smoky flavour, and the chilli paste was piquant and punchy. Paired with the soft-boiled egg and Maggi noodles, this dish is somewhat of an elevated version of Indomie with creamier overtones.


Korean food enthusiasts will be pleased to know that they also have Rabokki ($26.90++). While the Ayam Bakar Garlic White Sauce feeds one, the Rabokki is recommended for two to three diners. 


Featuring tteokbokki, beef shabu slices, fishcakes, quail eggs, and ramyeon topped with melted American cheese, this dish was served over a small fire to keep it warm. 

I particularly enjoyed the beef shabu slices, which were fatty and cooked to a nice tenderness. The tteokbokki also had a QQ texture and was pleasantly chewy.


My colleague and I both agreed, however, that the sauce was a tad too sweet for our liking. It didn’t detract from our overall enjoyment of the dish, though, as it was sufficiently spicy and gave the quail eggs and fishcakes some extra flavour. 


The highlight of the menu is undoubtedly the Seafood Platter ($159.90++), which is big enough to serve four to six people. Presented in a large rectangular hot pot, the platter stars a heaping serving of mussels, lala, eight large prawns, two squids, four half shell scallops with roe, corn on the cob, shiitake mushrooms, and a lobster, atop a bed of Maggi noodles submerged in tom yum soup.

I was pleasantly surprised when I found out the soup was tom yum-flavoured, as I thought its mild acidity and sweetness complemented the brininess of the seafood selection.


The most numerous items on the platter were the mussels and lala, both of which had a mild, sweet flavour and great umami. The scallops, on the other hand, were fresh and meaty with extra-large roe that added a soft, almost velvety texture when eaten together.

As for the squid, I’m not the biggest fan of squid in general, but the large, chunky pieces here were, thankfully, firm and tender, making them rather enjoyable to eat.


My favourite items from this extensive spread were the prawns and lobster. Not only did the flesh peel from their shells with little to no effort on my part—an indication that they were not overcooked—they were both reasonably succulent and delicately sweet.


My only gripe here is that the lobster was relatively small for a sharing platter meant for a group of four to six. Nevertheless, there’s still plenty of other seafood to go around if you don’t get enough lobster.


The Seafood Platter is not the only sharing platter on the menu: those who aren’t big fans of seafood can order the Meat Platter ($159.90++) instead, which switches out the assortment of seafood for a variety of beef and chicken cuts.

It’s also worth noting that the Maggi noodles across all three dishes were cooked to a firm al dente texture, but became soggy as we left them to sit while shooting photos. As with all instant noodles,it’s recommended that you dig in as quickly as possible to prevent them from becoming too mushy! 

Ambience at Magg By Royz Et Vous 


Magg by Royz Et Vous operates out of the same space as their parent company, which occupies a small, two-level shophouse on the corner of Sultan Gate. With its white-washed brick walls, marble table tops, and plushVictorian-inspired dining chairs, the restaurant is a comfortable respite from the heat and humidity outside. 

It was fairly late into lunchtime when we arrived that day, so the restaurant was mostly empty. Seeing as Royz Et Vous is a popular halal F&B brand, however, I think this spot will be fairly crowded on weekends.


Magg By Royz Et Vous is a 12-minute walk from Bugis MRT Station and a six-minute walk from Nicoll Highway MRT Station. There are also a number of bus options from Bugis that make the restaurant relatively accessible to most. 

The verdict

With its elevated renditions of Maggi mee, Magg By Royz Et Vous is a rather unique concept that takes a beloved instant snack and turns it into a hearty meal. I certainly would not mind paying them another visit, especially if it’s to share their platters with family and friends.

If you’re looking for more halal options nearby, walk further along Sultan Gate to BANNGKOK Street Food, a Muslim-owned Thai restaurant! Otherwise, check out our Bugis Street food guide for more good eats near Bugis MRT station.
