Operating as part of the Spa Esprit Group, Skinny Pizza prides itself on offering the thinest pizza crust, comparable to crackers or Papadum that shatters when bit, topped with fresh, wholesome and healthy ingredients, which results in great flavour. With this, Skinny Pizza has hit on a winning formula of low-carbohydrates / low-carb, healthy, and light, non-filling pizzas, which appeal to the health-conscious, vegetarians, and many females.

Ambience at Skinny Pizza is casual, but cramped. Furniture is placed quite closely, which results in conversations being able to carry to the next table, raising the ambient noise level in the restaurant. The lighting, while sufficient, tends to be slightly dim. I also noticed that the pizza pans tend to be rather large in comparision to the table, as one pizza pan alone takes up about half the available table space.

Service staff during peak periods at Skinny Pizza tends to be somewhat rushed and brusque. This isn't a place where you'll be able to converse with the staff serving you, but they're friendly enough, and also able to make recommendations. Beyond that, the service here is pretty average, and while I've yet to have a bad experience, I haven't had any memorable or outstanding ones either.

The famous wafer thin and crispy pizza crust at Skinny Pizza was inspired by roti prata / naan. There are slighly over 20 varieties of pizza on the menu, and most are quite healthy. Skinny Pizza also offers various pasta dishes and side dishes, though the range available is rather limited. Overall, the restaurant is rather light on meat, and quite suitable for vegetarians / seafood lovers. However, prices here are slighly higher than other pizza joints.

The Wild Truffled Mushroom Pizza is a house signature dish, and also the most popular pizza on the menu. Garnishings of roasted shitake mushrooms, roasted button mushrooms, garlic, wild rocket leaves, onions, truffle mash, truffle oil and fresh parmesan cheese piled on a thin, crispy, cracker-like / biscuit-like pizza base. The earthy aroma of truffles hits you the minute this is placed on the table, and each bite is blissful, packing full-bodied flavour. It can get a little overwhelming nearing the end of the dish though, due to the incredible richness.

A limited time edition drink, the Kiwi Almond Sorbet has a fruity, refreshing taste, though it's more like a soda than a sorbet. I also didn't notice the taste of almonds, as it might have been overwhelmed by the citrus. But overall, a decent drink.

I liked the slight char on the Grilled Corn On The Cob, but thought it would be easier to consume if the ends were removed. As it is, eating it was messy, and the sour cream did little to enhance the flavour. The Sweet Potato Nibblets were thick cut and firm, but I felt it could have done with more seasoning, as it was a little bland. The Quarter Metre Long Chicken Sausage was firmly packed and meaty, and I liked the heat from the spice within.
