I have been wanting to visit the National Kitchen by Violet Oon ever since it opened in the National Gallery. Reservations are sparse so decided to try for lunch. Violet Oon is a local celebrity and I loved the idea of eating tradition local dishes...More

Second visit. Love the interior decor. Great service from attentive staff. Great tasting Peranakan menu. Just a little noisy due to group booking.

It's a beautiful restaurant no doubt, though there are better places to enjoy good Peranakan dishes. I enjoyed the Buah Keluak Noodles which is delicious, but the Dry Mee Siam failed to impress. Service was very good nevertheless.

Restaurant always fully booked but they accommodated my lastminute requests to add guests to my table - family friendly as I had a toddler and an infant too! Service excellent and friendly as usual and food was great! Will definitely return.

There is a bar inside the restaurant with high stools... not much room and waiters rush by. Better bet is the rooftop bar. The view is wonderful and the restaurant routinely send customers there for pre-dinner cocktails... More
