Had a farewell dinner for a colleague and we were one of the first customers. Manager took the time to explain menu. We over ordered as we didn't really understand the "2.5 portion" concept that he explained. Luckily we were able to cancel one of the dish. The dishes were good but just find that the flavours (citrus) were almost... More

Possible best roast pig ever. Best Spanish food outside Spain. With a good mix of imported and local produce. Good value for set lunch.

Cannot recommend this place enough, we went on a night out as a two couple group and the level and quality of service, first off, is a high watermark for Singapore. Next up was the exemplary level of skill and finesse on display in every course consumed (we went for the tasting option) accompanied by some truly excellent top shelf... More

This is a Michelin star restaurant- it is worth every penny!!! Exquisite food - sublime wine - intimate decor. Service - polite, informative and not pushy at all. Pepe - the executive chef is awesome. Location in Sing-City: perfect. Charming neighborhood. I will come again. Ps: they have wifi:-)

Been to Bam twice and both occasions it was very good food and service. Its a tapas type food with a Japanese twist to it and pairing with Sake makes it really interesting. The sakura prawns and the duck dumplings are divine so give it a try. Not cheap but worth it. The service is very attentive and can help... More

Tras St is actually an amazing street for foodies. The locale is filled with heritage and history and there’s plenty of restaurants and hidden gem. One of them is this like Sake Bar that is pretty awesome. At BAM, almost everything in their menu goes well with sake, and their certified resident sake sommeliers will not only pair your dishes...

We went here for a date night on a Friday and really liked the ambiance, it felt like we were in Soho in Hong Kong, good vibe and energy. The menu was underwhelming as a "tapas" selection and the main dishes were not main dish sized so we ended up ordering quite a but (mind you we're not big eaters).... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
