Time Out says
Named after the former pawn shop it now occupies, The Pawn is an elegant space that brings together the old and the new. The building itself dates back to 1888 but the food and drinks are nothing short of contemporary. Enjoy a handcrafted cocktail in the alfresco terrace at the Botanicals Bar on the first floor, or venture up to the main dining room on the second floor to enjoy a menu of simple and rustic dishes cooked with modern flair.

Wow. What happened to The Pawn? It used to be one of my favorite places. I loved sitting on the terrace and hearing the trams. Service is appalling, decor is threadbare, and the food is overpriced and underwhelming at its best. Such a bummer.
I’ve been going to the Pawn since they originally opened many years ago when it was a casual English pub. Then Tom Aiken took over and revamped the place to be a more modern pub and restaurant. It had a very good GM, chef team and bar staff until recently. My last visit to the restaurant was unbelievable, the food was cold and clearly not cooked to order. I have come to know Tom Aiken has disassociated himself from this restaurant, rightly so. The service tries to be helpful, however, the food and management is woefully horrible now. It’s expensive and not worth a visit. The furnishings and decor is tattered
Kevin LAM is a particularly poor representative and manager. He refuses to acknowledge kitchen mistakes and doesn’t take accountability for the overall performance of the restaurant.
Avoid this place now. Sadly the past glory days are no longer there with the current ownership and management.
