The food is typical, an experience, and pure enjoyment. A "must go to" place in SG. Very hospitable staff.

Good food for sharing with a group of people, colleagues or friends. Every dish we had was enjoyable but I particularly liked the otak otak and beef rendang. We had the private room upstairs which was great for a large group. Portions are reasonable, for a group of 12 people you will need to order about 3 portions of each... More

Went here a "last night in town" treat and weren't disappointed. We made a reservation and it appears you do need to because it is popular. They were taking walk-ins on the night but a lot were turned away. We ordered a copule of staters and 2 amins plus a vegetable dish. The standout dishes were the Fish Head Curry... More

Personally, I find it interesting to have the taste of the Perannakan dish at the famous THE BLUE GINGER restaurant. Better reserved for seats as saw many people and tourists waiting. For environment, a small but nicely decor space. The service was nice but the dishes needed to wait quite long (2 out of 4 we ordered). Food was nice... More

It's been some time since I was down Tanjong Pagar, but this little gem never fails to deliver, the flavours are subtle and authentic, fish head curry and beef rendang are definitely a must try. Service very attentive and all round a good night out with the team

Blue Ginger is a good choice for Malay/Chinese cuisine. Located in an old shophouse, the restaurant serves solid quality food in a somewhat traditional surrounding. Try to get a table on the first floor.

We asked our concierge where we could try Peranaken cuisine, and he recommended Blue Ginger. You need to book to be sure of getting a table, which we did. It was well worth it! The flavours were quite unique, and most enjoyable. Best described as aromatic, spicy and tangy, the food assailed our senses. The service was excellent, and the... 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.
