About
Nestled in the lush surroundings of the Ginger Garden, within Singapore's first world heritage - Singapore Botanic Gardens. The Halia was established in 2001 with great consideration to conform to the contours of the land and majestic trees. Our cuisine of Modern European with Asian Influences is a nod to Singapore's diverse and metropolitan landscape. Guests may choose to dine ensconced in the comfort of our air-conditioned Dining Room which still offer a view of the gardens through full-length glass windows or enjoy the natural breeze and surrounding view on the Viewing Deck.

Booked this place for anniversary dinner just looking at the photos on Instagram. But the place is so worn out, not just the place itself, all the tables, chairs and even water bottle. They are charging the price premium but the service is so poor....Even the payment, we had to go and pay at the counter on our own. The staff are not welcoming as well. Only the food and drinks are ok but still not worth the price. And normally, all the restaurants that we went for our anniversaries or birthday will always arrange small birthday cake or dessert if put a note in the reservation, this place, they didn't even give say "Happy Anniversary", didn't even dare to think about the dessert. So, we ended up getting the dessert somewhere else in Dempsey. The vibe and atmosphere is way more better than The Halia. I'll never go back to this place and would not recommend to any of my friends as well.More

Enjoyed the fried lamb chops very much even though they were part of a seasonal menu Shrimp salad had a delicious mango dressing Chilli crab pasta was so-so, on the sweet side Ordered oysters as well, those were small and too pricey

We went as a group of 5, celebrating my birthday. My daughter ordered salmon, my boy ordered wagyu cheek, my husband got the braised duck, my friend and I oredered the wrapped hallibut. All are ok. Service is good, although when we asked for an...extra rice it took so long to get it. But overall nice atmosphere, good service. The price is steep but somehow it is worth it.More

While the food was of decent quality, the experience could be improved with more attentive and pleasant service. Paper menus looked worn and old.

The pictures shown here are from better days when this was a well run higher end restuarant with great ambiance. Today its wooden tables, centralise spoons and knives water on table (its dry) and ok service. The food from limited menu is ok but overall...dissapointing for such a super location.More

We had a wonderful time at Lin & Colin’s wedding gathering with our family and friends, thanks to The Villa Botanic Gardens! The food’s delicious and the crew’s very proactive in serving the guests! Ryan, Tao Ha and Chelsea were especially amazing, and helpful throughout...the event! Each time we called on them for help, they were ever ready to render their assistance! Their customer service, polite nature and friendliness has made us all feel welcomed at The Villa! Kudos to the entire team, and thank you!More

We had a very nice lunch here after walking around the Botanic Gardens. We arrived at the Ginger gardens where this restaurant is, that uses ginger products in all its menu`s. It was nice to sit in the middle of the garden surrounded by many...types of gingers. Very nice menu for lunch & not too expensive.More

Small menu with dishes that sound more interesting than they are, but a large variety of non-alcoholic fruit and spice concoction drinks that are excellent. A good spot to rest for a while before continuing through the huge gardens

The chairs are a bit dirty... The blinds should not use bright colour as mould can be seen very clear if blinds are down

We dined in for dinner with orders of four fresh drinks from bar, truffle fries, chili crab pasta n grilled barramundi. Fries come in gigantic portion while the mains are just decent. The ambiance was utterly comfy on a breezy night.

Honest review from someone who likes to eat and not picky. And eating here is such a dissapoint. Overpriced and cannot even praise food is ok because it is not. Please review all you dishes and have a taste.

The Malaysian word for ginger is "halia" which is where this restaurant is located in the Ginger Garden. Luxuriate in a tropical garden environment where the tasty food is also the star of the show. I had a grilled Barramundi fish with a wonderful fennel...salad, roasted grapes and ginger flower hotsauce. The flavors complement each other and the portion was just right. Service was exceptional.More
