Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.

Moi Lum Restaurant was founded in the 1920s by founder Mr Khong Yu Lum. The restaurant has been selling their legendary Crispy Fried Chicken 梅林烧鸡 and Golden Coin Beancurd 金钱豆腐 for the past 80 years. The restaurant started out by renting a shop space in a little coffee shop eatery selling and producing wanton noodles along Tanjong Pagar Road. When the coffee shop owners, Cheong Hou Coffee Shop, offered to sell the premises to Mr Khong Yu Lum, Mr Khong seized the opportunity as a young entrepreneur and started the restaurant with his peers from Guangdong who all had exceptional culinary skills.The restaurant business expanded rapidly. During the 1930s, Moi Lum Restaurant started providing catering services to shops and businesses that needed a convenient way to feed their staff. Subsequently, the restaurant expanded their catering arm to serve large associations as well as a multitude of events for the rich and famous elite.In the 1960s, Moi Lum Restaurant was asked to participate in the very first Singapore Food Festival that was spread out over 10 days. The event featured signature local dishes that were dished out by the leading restaurants in Singapore then 72 years after its founding in 1992, Moi Lum was asked to cease its operations at its Tanjong Pagar Road branch because the government repossessed the premises in an en-bloc initiative Moi Lum Restaurant re-opened in 1993 at a coffee shop along Henderson Road.The store was reopened by Mr Khong’s second son, Ah Tuck, who took over the running of the restaurant and kept the regular customers coming back. After six years, the Henderson outlet was clearly too small for the swelling crowd that queued up during meal times. Once again, Moi Lum Restaurant moved to larger premises at Geylang Road.In 2004, Moi Lum Restaurant made a sentimental move back to the location of its founding in Tanjong Pagar at a Food Street call Murray Terrace, just a few shop spaces behind the old Moi Lum Restaurant of the 1920s.In 2008, after much scouting for a new premise, the restaurant found its current location 2 blocks away at 38 Maxwell Road, Airview Building, #01-01.In 2010, with the help of loyal customers and a strong family backing, Moi Lum Restaurant finally reopens with an expansion of the current unit and now can seat up to 160 people.Moi Lum brings traditional food quality while keeping up with modern tastes to cater to all different walks of life. It is the kind of family tradition which we treasure and promise to live up to our customers that brings them back for more. Moi Lum is where families can enjoy a leisurely lunch or where business associates can proudly bring their clients for corporate dinners in the comforts of the restaurant.
