Travellers' Choice
An exciting new journey begins as the hot spot leads the flock of eclectic souls to a sprawling new nest at Carpenter Street. Self-described misfits that add novel twists to regional Japanese flavours and traditional cooking techniques, every order at Neon Pigeon 2.0 is an adventure. New to the Neon Pigeon experience is the Raw Bar, which celebrates an ever-changing selection of beautiful, seasonal ingredients in true Japanese fashion, except one shouldn’t expect sushi here. Instead, the Raw Bar dishes out fresh plates along the likes of crudos to tatakis, carpaccios and ceviches. Neon Pigeon 2.0 also takes it up several notches with an expanded cocktail bar swirling and shaking up Tokyo-inspired

We were here yesterday for dinner and were impressed by the immaculate service equally matched by scrumptious food (try: Crab bao, Pork ribs, Chicken wings, Tokyo hummus, Kosho Cauliflower) topped up by several Negronis and an infectious vibe to boot. I would eat here everyday...if I could. Special thanks to all the staff for running a slick operation.More

Well known in the F&B industry as the hipster bar and “tapas” place, decided to give it a try at their new place. Been always a fan of how their marketing team market this branding. It really intrigued me and would really like to see...if it’s worth the “noise”. Ambiance wise, so much better than their previous location at Keong Saik, as this is much more convenient to come over via public transport and there’s plenty of nearby parking place. Food wise, came with not much expectations but the food is decent, no complain about it. The hummus, recommended by the bartender Andy as “life changing hummus” blew us away. Simple food, but they executed the flavour perfectly. Bone marrow was “orgasmic” (lol). Tried other small plates and bar bites but these 2 plates captured and stood out in our tastebuds. Drink wise, as expected of a hip cocktail/sake bar. Told Andy to recommend some drinks for my partner whom like fruity drink and I like sour and strong drink and he have kindly did something off the menu. And we definitely can’t stop at just a glass. Thanks to the 10:30 curfew, we couldn’t ordered more than we would like. Could get drunk all night at the bar. Lol. Not forgetting the complimentary shots of sake they keep giving all night long, I guess the benefit of sitting by the bar counter. Well, like any typical Singaporean, I love free goodies, so I’ll take it anytime. Nice gestures by the bartenders! Service wise, well well well, what more can I say. I love the approach of the staff. Very very friendly and welcoming from the moment the greeter greet you at the door and sit you at your table. Outstanding service by the 3 bartenders, particular Andy and Adam! Truly a gem in this industry, cause afterall, a good service makes an unforgettable dining experience no matter how “decent” the quality of food are. Price wise, totally worth the value. Will definitely come back again whenever we crave for the drinks that Andy make and hopefully the next time we come, Adam (whom we assumed is a trainee, but still giving awesome service) would be able to let us try his off the menu drink invention! Kudos to Andy and Adam for the amazing service. And kudos to team Neon Pigeon for giving a wonderful dining experience. Give yourself a pat in the back and continue to be awesome! See you again! Till next time.More

The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. However the person delivering the food did not highlight the dry fish in the seasoning, in spite of specifically having asked for vegetarian food. Could do with a more vegetarian friendly menuMore

After reading the positive reviews, we decided to try out Neon Pigeon. I’m sad to say that it was a total disappointment. The food was extremely over seasoned and salty. We had several dishes, but the hummus was the only one that was very good....The scallops, beef dumplings, and tuna ceviche were all disappointing. The rump steak was okay but nothing remarkable (and also over seasoned). Moreover, I was really surprised by the poor service. I waited at least 15 minutes for a classic margarita, despite my companion having his drink already (twice). They are very strict about the length of time you can have the table, which is totally fine since communicated upfront. However, the way they approach you about it borders on rude. Several times, we were approached with a reminder that they needed the table back at 7pm (this was around 630pm). When the table next to us was seated, instead of saying “enjoy your meal” it was “don’t forget we need the table back at 9pm.” It gives the feeling that they don’t actually want you there. All in all, a very mediocre and disappointing experience!More

We ordered the Sunday lunch from Neon Pigeon and it was D E L I C I O U S. So much so that I didn’t have time to take any photos! Both the kids and adults loved the beef and chicken yakitori - cooked...to perfection even with delivery which is no mean feat! - hummous and yuzu puffs. The icing on the cake was the incredibly easy order process and the excellent customer service by Eddy. Thanka again for making our Sunday so special!More
