We were a party of 12, a first time visit for my family from Poland. Our lunch party on 29 June was attended to by Raja, and the rest of the Halia crew. Raja was incredibly attentive, making sure our many food orders came out in good time. Fabulous service! The rest of the Halia crew during our visit were also great! Thank you so much for making our experience one to remember. :)

Bai, Anna & family.

We went for a walk in the Singapore Botanic Gardens and had breakfast at The Halia. We were made to feel like friends by the warm welcome from Alice and Edwin. My husband had an ‘Inglese’ breakfast and I had the Greek yoghurt and muesli. It was excellent and well-priced and the service and friendly smiles made us feel great. Certainly worth another visit!

My Family and I came to Singapore Botanic Gardens 2 years ago and visited orchid garden.
We were tired so had some bites and drinks at Halia restaurant. Service’s fantastic with personalised touch.
They call my Father by name and we were amazed. This is how i remember this restaurant so I asked them to eat there again even it’s a little pricey.
We all decided to come back and was surprised they were halal because there are no restrictions for us.
Went to order quite a banquet for the family
The only dish that is very good and seemed not to change according to my Father was the Chilli crab spaghetti.
We order salad with prawn and the sauce was very different, unique and good.
Also had the corn bread with avocado which was okay with presentation but tasted bland.
We order few main dishes,
Daily special beef, burger, crab spaghetti and drinks.
The drinks were pretty good but the portion were too little for the price. I had the cucumber with turmeric and liked it.
Burger and fries were in the middle of the plate and almost toppled because patty is too big for the bun. It was bland even it is wagyu, flavor is not there under seasoned but anyways something is really lacking.
Fries some undercooked some hard?? Not cooked at the same time?
Service was okay at first that’s why I write in trip advisor. And we remembered Tao Ha who’s very friendly.
The others were not and find that from entering.
Seemed snobbish?
Some just talk near the bar they don’t see my Mother calling.
I’ll rate this high if food were not bland but hard to recommend again since service seemed declined too.

Great atmosphere, fantastic selection of food and drinks. There were about 14 of us from 18 months old to 36 years old, and Halia pretty much catered to everyone. Worth a visit, definitely. Staff were lovely too :) thanks for a wonderful restaurant experience.

p.s. their pineapple jam is delicious!
