Put a range of dining options within the National Art Gallery and have them open in the evening too, when the Gallery is closed - an interesting concept. Consequently you should find out exactly where the restaurants are to avoid confusion and stress. Violet Oon's restaurant has been developed to look like an old cosy wood panelled restaurant. The surfaces... More

Portions are large but generally very good. A starter of rojak salad which contained rose apples, sour mango and jellyfish was interesting but a little too sweet and sticky for me. The classic chicken and rice was delicious (ask for thigh rather than breast meat for max flavour) and the lace pancakes were good but, again, a little too sweet... More

Far more than we could eat, but oh so good. A decent amount of kick to some of the dishes, but flavours by the shed load... portion sizes were large, so plan accordingly - two appetisers and two mains would have been more than enough - just makes it harder to choose...! Highly recommend the Kuay Pie Tee for starter,... More

We had dinner at this restaurant, having found it on tripadvisor. Beware - it is not easy to find within the Gallery. Decor is very attractive: colonial style. Unfortunately we did not find the food very exciting and portions were very small, even though we are not big eaters, so we went away hungry. Maybe we should have ordered more... More

Knowledgeable, attentive and all the time he constantly looked after other guests too.The food was Michelin Star worthy. A sight for the eyes. Flavors that exploded in... More

Price reasonable, great food, warm service and awesome interior. The prawn noodle was a bit spicy though. Anyway, I would like to visit again.

We had our company dinner here- 30 of us in a long table.Food was tasty and the service was commendable. Ms. Yoges, the restaurant manager ensured that the guests were well taken care of. Since we were a big group, the space for movement was limited. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

The experience at Violet Oon National Gallery was a very pleasant one. The ngoh Hiang was awesome, we were afraid the portion would be petite sizes but surprisingly generous. I was never a fan of buak kelak but The Ayam buak kelak changed my mind about buak kelak forever, and now it would be a dish I would order all... More
