Almost impossible to get a reservation online. Could not tell me when the booking for future dates will open. Was told that we can pop in to see if their seats outside their restaurant are available for walk in customers. We finally did, but of...course, the two tables were taken. So, we asked if we could use the gift voucher for a takeaway. We had to wait to see if it can be done! Lesson learned - do not buy any gift voucher for any of your loved ones or friends because it will be very difficult for them to enjoy a meal in this restaurant. What is worse, is that we need their approval to use a voucher they sold to us, for a takeaway since they do not have enough seats for meals they sold to anyone online!! Of course, the expensive meal is underwhelming when it is not served warm and well plated, as the whole experience of a Michelin starred meal is missing. Burnt Ends needs to sell meals with a confirmed reservation date instead of gift vouchers which they know many who bought will not be able to enjoy the experience of dining in.More
Didn’t live up to the expectation. The menu is well thought-out and the drinks are good but meat offering and taste is notch below great bbq joints in US and drinks fall short of great bars. So in combination its a good place not a...great one.More
I think everyone knows the food at Burnt Ends is outstanding. When we visited lately, I had an incident which left me displeased. I won't go into the details but what I want to highlight is the exceptional way that my concerns were dealt with....In all my years in Singapore, I have never seen better customer service ever – the staff working that evening would have stood on their heads to make the situation right. Everyone makes mistakes but the effort put forth by Burnt Ends to rectify things is to be applauded and congratulated. Above and beyond. You guys are doing lots of things right!More
Been seeing a lot of average reviews about this place but I beg to differ. Our experience was great. It really depends on whether you are looking for simply food executed brilliantly (à la Burnt Ends), or fancy experimental food which is not really my...vibe (à la Odette). I think the Michelin is very well deserved. If you're looking for the latter, however, this is not the place for you. The ambience is casual and the fare is simple with a surprising twist.
We had the omakase chef's select and were very satisfied. We tried at least 12 dishes. I recommend getting the chef's select if it's your first time here as there are odd sounding dishes which are delights, and many hidden gems in the off-menu dishes. Have your server recommend the portion as the chef's select might be too much, our server curated a private menu with a range of dishes slightly smaller than the chef's select option. This ended up being a tad cheaper than the chef's select menu options!
I particularly enjoyed the dishes I least expected to like. The duck's heart and chicken neck were good. For the off-menu dishes I really liked the beef marmalade. The snacks were great. I didn't think the mains (King crab and blackmore steak) were as mind-blowing (which is probably what the other reviewers tried) but they were well-executed classics. Would definitely come back for the snacks!
TLDR: get the tasting menu if possible because the snacks and small plates are the highlights, get the pulled pork burger if you're on a budget!More
I had been trying to book a table online forever but never could. Finally managed to walk in on a weekday lunch with my friend. We had no choice but to stay outside but good that it was well ventilated.
The waiter recommended lots of...starters - I think about 5 and then the sirloin steak as our main. There were quail eggs with caviar, bread with some spiced pork on top, a sort of arroz caldo with sous vide egg and mushrooms, and some others that didn't really make an impression. Then when the steak finally arrived, all that great marbling was drowned in an overwhelming, cloyingly sweet sauce. What a waste. The steak would've been great with just salt. The dessert was some fruit tart and it was just so-so but tasted way better than the steak. That's how bad it was.
We ended up spending about 130SGD each and I've never felt so disappointed about anything. The only redeeming factor was that I had a 200SGD voucher so I didn't have to pay full. Still glad to have tried it once so I can finally put all that hype to rest.More
Visited for lunch . Ordered quail eggs, pork mustard , egg plant , Sanger burger, grilled asparagus , beef, lamb kebab, grilled fish with some zesty cabbage slaw, beef and the berry tart for Dessert.
Expected much more from one of Asia best restaurant ....Was looking for a distinctive taste that would leave an impression . Everything was underwhelming.More
Even though the food here is expensive, you are getting what you are paying for. Ordered the eggplant dish, the Burnt End burger, lamp chops, and beef. It was super good and very juicy. It is very hard to get a booking though, so you...have to camp at the website at 10am as the slots will open 30 days in advanced.More
Chef's select for the night. Had been wanting to try this place even before they got the star but the waiting list is insane unless you're willing to dine outside which isn't that bad honestly.
Every dish is mainly served in 1 biters. May seem...very little but over the courses, you WILL fill up quickly. My favourite was the quail egg caviar tart, smoky, rich and savoury. Also, after dining here, you'd understand how the name 'burnt ends' was derived. They really do deliver something in the burnt factor for every dish.
The place is usually packed so be expected to wait to dine. It isn't a large compound so it can be quite crammed up or noisy inside depending on the other diners. Therefore, alfresco isn't that bad at all just minus the ac. The place serves alcohol as well with a few aussie beers,wines and bartenders to prep your cocktails.More
