Another wonderful dinner though the chef is away at the michelin awards tonight. From the amuse bouche to the petit fours, every dish is very good to excellent. The main of guinea fowl was outstanding. Very good service

Went for lunch and had the 5-course with wine pairings. The menu looks deceptively simple online, but when you actually eat it -- wow! They don't describe everything that goes in a dish on the menu so you definitely get surprised, in a good way....The wine pairings were astounding -- they really went well and enhanced the food. (I find a lot of fine dining restaurants in Singapore usually just pair it with a random white or red that doesn't do much.) The set lunch comes with a lot of amuse bouche, sourdough bread, palate cleanser, and petit fours so you will not leave hungry. One of my favorite dishes was the palate cleanser (a cucumber sorbet), but the main lamb dish was also exquisite. There is also an optional cheese course which can be added on. Lots of British cheeses to be selected from the cheese trolley and paired with a very special fig/nut bread. Service was really good. Every table has a good view, but they moved is to another table with an even better view towards the end of the meal. Service and food really had soul and heart -- some other fine dining restaurants just do it by-the-book, Jaan felt warm. ~S$750 for 2 pax (5-course, wine pairings, 1 cheese course). Not cheap, but we both agreed it was worth it and would love to come back.More

My first visit after Covid, and good to see the place full and food standards high. ( My second with this chef.) The basic meal is interesting and reasonably priced, but I did not drink wine despite the temptations. The treasure chest of British cheeses...is very tempting, off menu, but might be a distraction from the subtleties of the basic four or five course offering. Plus leave room for the petits fours at the end. Their sour dough bread is good, and it comes at a point in the meal where you might need to take in some carbs. The dishes are beautifully prepared, but small portions, so the bread gives you some ballast. We took our leftover bread away, too good to waste. Only negatives were the music, where I had to make two requests to dial it down, and staff who could not always articulate clearly the multiple ingredients in a given dish. At least not to my ears, and I am used to Singlish. Two birthday cakes appeared while we ate, so this is clearly a place to take someone special. We had a clear day, so the views were excellent, even from a table not near the window. Music permitting, this is a good place to talk, with tables well spaced. Mr Westaway visited every table to present his cleansing sorbet, a nice touch.More

I had a very enjoyable evening at JAAN on Saturday 7th May. All staff were friendly and approachable. I was eating alone but the staff engaged throughout with pleasant conversation. The food and the wine pairings were exceptional. There was an excellent range of foods...on the menu and I was very full by the end and had to take my chocolates home with me. The food was inventive and embodied a range of flavours. It was really appreciated that Chef Westaway made the effort to come and introduce himself and to serve one of the courses. The fact that he also came at the end of the evening to thank me for coming was appreciated and personal. My only comment is around the actual setting and the decor - I did think more could be done regarding the setting which reminded me of a syndicate room at a conference venue. However, this did not distract from the excellence of the food and service. The window seat did allow great views over the city. Thank you all for a great evening.More

Excellent British Menu Amazing good, first class service and a huge selection of wine list! Beautiful table that comes with amazing view and a luxury decor The appetizers is very good Roast leek potato soup really takes me back to my time in London White...asparagus with cavair... SUPERB and including the shrimp and asaparagus, very smooth and crispy with brown butter sauce! Cut 1 star because the bread & butter has no selection because some people prefer soft bread over hard dough and the fish dish was a bit dry also I feel that the spacing between each dish was a bit too long as it does personalize individual table! Another point the course might be a little too less compared to the price and the ingredients used its not valued to the price charged, but other than that, its a must try michelin restaurant! Last disappointing thing is that wifi service is very very bad!More

During Circuit Breaker when restaurants were not allowed to open, they pre-sold tickets for dinner. We were living in Malaysia and happy to support this business. Now that borders are open, they continue to refuse to honour these tickets. They have stolen our money and...offer zero solutions.More

Food is really remarkable and I applaud Chef Kirk Westaway's ability to elevate the flavours from simple ingredients - and when I later saw the title of his menu "Simple Yet Complex", it immediately clicked. Dining hall has a great ambience with just the right...level of background music to provide privacy for intimate conversations. Sweeping view of the city from the 70th floor is an icing on the cake. Service is great, friendly and attentive but unintrusive. I especially appreciate the service staff mix with substantial presence of locals.More

Went for dinner to celebrate my birthday. Chose this place because I’m not all that familiar with British food and I wanted to give it a try and it’s one of the best decisions I ever made because JAAN absolutely blew me away! First and...foremost, the view of the restaurant is stunning and the decor was stylish. Service was impeccable. Now don’t get me started on the food - it’s one of the best, if not the best meal I’ve ever had! You can see why they have 2 Michelin stars, it’s definitely not just for show. For drinks, we asked our server for recommendations and got a champagne and a glass of wine (unfortunately I forgot the names), and both were impressive! I don’t drink much but I enjoyed both a lot. I’ve never had champagne before but you bet I’m definitely gonna get more next time, was raving about it even after the meal. The wine was also absolutely fantastic. As for the food, every single course was full of surprises. Everything was very exquisite and both the presentation and taste were a delight. The goose mousse was lovely, and the roast leek & potato soup was full of flavour, definitely some of the best soup I had. Even after the meal, I find myself keep thinking back about it. The squab pigeon was really the highlight of the meal. Tender, savoury, with a thin layer of fragrant and crispy crust on the surface, even the turnip that came with the dish was sweet and flavourful. The strawberry eton mess was very refreshing and I polished off my plate quickly. Words can’t express how much I enjoyed myself. Highly, highly recommended! If the chance comes up again, I’m definitely going back for more!More

Elaine and Kelly took care of my reservations and delivered on their promise- a lovely window seat. But the views are not why you come here. The waitstaff was helpful, every ready-to-serve any request and explained every course and the appropriate sequence/method to truly enjoy...the dishes. Chef Kirk Westaway got out in the dining room, stopped by our table to check on our meal, and truly made us feel special. 2 Michelin stars indeed with a team that clearly put in the work and I’ll definitely be recommending Jaan for its reinvented British cuisine.More

The dining experience at Jaan by Kirk Westaway was really special. I had requested for a window side table and we did manage to get one, though it was in the corner, which was a 4 on 5. The menu is quite nice and we...were really enjoyed the variety and presentation of each dish. The appetizers were delicious and I liked their presentation. The only 2 dishes that we didn’t like was the Pigeon (a bit gamey) and the 36 hour cured Wagyu beef (which I got as a replacement of the pigeon). To be honest by the time the mains came we were quite full with the food and the gorgeous Portuguese wine we drank. Each dish was really well presented, though the explanation of the dish by the serving staff could do with a bit more tuning. We had to ask a few times to explain what the dish was. Some finesse would be good from a Michelin 2 ⭐️ ⭐️ perspective. I must say that I really enjoyed Kirk’s representation of the quintessential British food…. Definitely unique and interesting with the flavors, textures and style. Overall, the staff was courteous and friendly. I would suggest them to consider serving some cheese along with a aperitif of some sort, as part of the experience versus the additional charge. The dessert was also delicious, I preferred the chocolate cake over the strawberry dessert, which was quite light and delectable as well. It was also nice meeting Kirk in person. I have dined in several top 50 Asian restaurants and this too was a nice box to check. The decor is a bit underwhelming, the white table cloth, flower selection etc. on the table needs to be spruced. We would like to revisit the place, perhaps for some lunch this time, so we can skip dinner that day given the amount of food we get to eat.More

Jaan is an exclusive and posh restaurant so I would not dine there with anything less than a nice shirt, trousers and dress shoes. So certainly no shorts and flip-flops for sure.
