Glad that I made a reservation on a Saturday afternoon. Quite crowded and a long queue for a seat. It was a great place to meet and catch up with a good assortment of snacks. Can tour the museum after that too!

Had brunch with friends with kids and restaurant was very accommodating giving us a long table at one end of the restaurant away from the crowd. Lots of food choices for all palates. They even have a kids menu. If you have a large group...with kids, this is a great place for both adults and kids to enjoy a meal together. Restaurant also provides books and colouring paraphernalia to keep the kids entertained, Staff were friendly, patient and accommodating.More

Finished viewing the museum exhibits and stopped by for an afternoon snack. Old school apple pie and coffee for myself, Berries yoghurt smoothie and a vanilla ice cream for my wife. Clean premises, friendly, great service, food fresh and tasty and great value.

Beautiful area with Open and full of light at the national gallery. Satay rendang was unfortunately too sweet, had tumeric. The green beans and crisp my papadoms was nice. The preserved vegetable called acar was too sweet as well. The Lou bak rice was better...but had huge fat portions- to be expected with pork belly. Amazing sauce, very nice tofu, beans and full boiled egg in soy sauce. Rather on the higher price end for food and drinks-$Sg 18 for a rice bowl dish and $Sg7 for soft drink. Service was ok.More

Food was generous and just the right amount of flavorful. Particularly loved the fries with kaffir lime mayo.

I recently visited Food For Thought in the National Museum of Singapore and I must say, it was a positive experience for me. The restaurant had a cozy and welcoming atmosphere, and the service was friendly and attentive. I was impressed by the range of...food options available, and everything I ordered was of good quality. However, I did notice that during peak hours, the service can be a bit slow and the prices are on the higher side. Despite this, I would definitely recommend Food For Thought as a great dining option within the museum, especially for grabbing a quick meal before or after exploring the exhibitsMore

We had lunch here after touring the museum and before heading out to the next attraction. Three of us had the Grilled Salmon Quinoa Salad and it was really good. Good coffees and apparently a v good vegan coconut ice cream sandwich for the member...of our party who chose it.More

Make a reservation on a Saturday thinking it will be packed like many other breakfast places but surprise to be the only ones there at 10am. Enjoyed the peace for 1/2 hour before the next table was seated. Food was served promptly and tasted delicious.

Reserved a table for 2 at a specific location. They obviously do not take into account reservations. They shoved us next to a big group. The guy at the entrance was not apologetic at all, merely saying they were crowded that day. No shut sherlock....That's why I reserved a table at They didn't even have a reserved table for us.More

Great place to bring guests, especially foreign academics visiting SMU right next door. Service was good and I liked the idea that local cuisine (e.g. Loh Bak) was being served

Good ambience and service. The food portions were just nice for small eaters. Quality of food could be further improved.

We needed a place last-minute to host a reception for guests who attended our solemnisation because the previous venue cancelled on us a week before our wedding. We reserved tables via Chope for 20 people or so, and Food for Thought attended to such a...big group with as much haste and grace as given to the rest of the other diners while we were there. Food variety was very impressive and everything looked good, and the food itself in general was delicious too! Only thing is that it’s a bit pricey but that’s also expected for a place like this and its location. Husband and I will be back some other time just the 2 of us! Thank you again Food for Thought (:More
