    Marriott Cafe: Good value top quality international buffet

    by colin_bramso Updated Feb 26, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is my favourite dinner buffet in town. The hotel is in a great central location on the corner of Orchard & Scotts Roads and next to Orchard MRT station, so it's convenient to get to. The Cafe on the ground floor has a very good value dinner buffet with live cooking stations and a wide choice of absolutely top quality food. The highlight is probably the seafood, which is of the highest standard, but the other dishes are excellent too. Price pp in 2014 is S$68++.

    The wine buffet at S$55++ gives a good choice of red or white, four or five of each, on a 'free-flow' help-yourself basis.

    Favorite Dish: There's a large choice, with many items to suit all tastes. Dishes include a very big selection of seafood, smoked salmon choices, roast beef with traditional accompaniments plus other European dishes such as braised beef in red wine, many local dishes, a good cheese selection, a wide variety of desserts, ice cream.

    Sumire Yakitori House: Sumire Yakitori House at Bugis Junction Singapore

    by Madasabull Written Jan 29, 2014

    This place already has at least 15 outlets in Japan, and has started elsewhere, and we came across it after walking around Bugis Street shops, on our way back to our hotel.

    We weren't all that hungry, but when we say what looked like loads of people having a great time inside, we had to investigate, and we were glad we did.

    The chef's were cooking open plan, so you could see what was going on, and everyone was sat at small tables in a rustic type atmosphere. But you instantly felt relaxed.
    .
    The waiter took us to a table and gave us an ipad to order with. You look through the menu on the ipad or normal printed menu, click on the item on the ipad, and when your finished choosing all your items, click complete, and that's it, it is sent straight away to the chef's who start cooking.

    We chose about half a dozen small starters to try different things, and the prices were cheap compared to other places we had seen, and well within our budget, and they all went down well with a cold pint of beer.

    All except the Chicken Soft Bone. We ordered it not knowing what it was, and when it came, it was like little strips in breadcrumbs, which looked great. But, it turns out that the Soft Bone was the Chicken Cartilage from the bread. You know the bit, it has no meat and is white and rubbery. Yep, deep fried and covered in breadcrumbs. Not for us, but the rest of the food was fantastic, and I highly recommend you visit the restaurant if you can.

    Street Vendor, near College of the Arts: Durian in the Park

    by Orchid Written Apr 22, 2013

    No ambiance whatsoever, just folding chairs and a table in a park by the street.

    Your selected durian is opened, and you chow down. There are plastic gloves provided so the smell does not stick to your fingers. Not much anyway. Yum

    Favorite Dish: Durian.

    Selecting the fruit Getting stuck into it.

    Indonesian Restaurant in Singapore

    by Rumi-fan Written Apr 12, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My Pak/Sng friend took me to this Indonesian Restaurant just down from the The Orchard Parade Hotel - not Orchard Rd side but the other road. Well I didnt take note of the name of the place but it is decorated in Hawaiian style decor on 4th floor of a business building. Really, you'd need to be a local to know its there - not noteable from the street. In anycase the food is simple, inexpensive, and very tasty. We pulled out the VT flag and got the waiter to snap us. Ive titled pic "An Aussie, A Pakistani, in an Indonesian Restaurant in Singapore". Quite globally encompassing dont you think? :)

    Aussie/Pakistani/IndoRest/Sng. Global huh!

    Clarke Quay: Clarke Quay

    by Cathy&Gary Updated Apr 11, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clarke Quay has five blocks of restored warehouses with more than 15O restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

    For us it is nowhere as good as it was years ago so if you go there don't bother going during the day as its a stinking hot concrete jungle with hardly anything open at all.

    Night time is totally different!

    Clarke Quay is always busy and extremely popular at night, the hard part is deciding which restaurant to eat in! There are so many choices, try the King Satay Club, our favorites there are satays of course and murtabah. There are also moored floating restaurants.

    Clarke Quay has changed so much and for us has lost some of its appeal. Last visit we decided to have dinner there at the Highlander, unfortunately we were hit by a huge storm and the big awnings could not handle the rain so everyone had to go inside to eat their meals.

    It was terrible, more like a nightclub and so noisy, worst part was it was so dark you could hardly see what you were eating. The prices here were crazy, but it is a tourist area so they can get away with it. Our bill for 2 x Bangers and Mash, 2 small Tiger beers and 2 ice teas was S$120 - about A$94. The food was not good either!

    Robertson Quay: Robertson Quay

    by Cathy&Gary Written Apr 10, 2013

    Along the Singapore riverfront you will find Robertson Quay, we actually prefer this area to Clarke Quay as it is more laid back and a very pretty area. You will find plenty of restaurants, bars and even art galleries. It is just a lovely area for a nice quiet walk or some alfresco dining and watch the world go by.

    Hard to believe that back in the 19th century this area was just a muddy swampland. You will also find Zouk which is Singapore's most popular nightclub at Jiak Kim Street Robertson Quay.

    Sheikh Al Arab Restaurant: Sheikh Al Arab Restaurant

    by Cathy&Gary Written Apr 7, 2013

    Sheik Al Arab is a Middle Eastern restaurant on Bali Lane in the Arab Street area just a 5 minute walk from the Bugis Mrt. Prices are very reasonable here and they pride themselves on their healthy way of cooking.

    It is quite a popular restaurant and service is pretty good. I have never been to a Middle Eastern restaurant before and have to say I loved the fantastic flavored cold teas for S$3.90, so much so I had two a cold mint tea and a hibiscus tea, both were delicious. My main was Pepper chicken chops which was very tasty and cost S$14.90.

    Chinatown Seafood Restaurant: Chinatown Seafood Restaurant

    by Cathy&Gary Written Apr 7, 2013

    The first time we went to Chinatown Seafood was way back in 1992 and they were very popular then. We have been back many times over the years and it is always busy here.

    Chinatown Seafood is on the corner of Pagoda and Trengganu streets in Chinatown. The food is also very good and we had had many dishes but the one I really enjoyed was a 1.3 kilo chili mud crab, a bit pricey at S$78 but delicious.

    They also have cheap bottles of beer, $5.90 for a large bottle!

    Chinatown Seafood is perfect for a drink break and a good spot for people watching.

    Food Republic: Food Republic

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Food Republic are a very popular food court located in Vivocity, Suntec City, Wisma Atrai and Suntec City shopping centers.

    We have been to the one at Vivocity shopping centre mant times and it is huge seating over 900 people. The hardest part here is trying to decide what to eat from the numerous stalls, carts or restaurants.

    All the eateries are rated and this is in public view to give you an idea of quality, cleanliness etc.

    So don't let anyone tell you its expensive to eat in Singapore, because it is not.
    You can buy a massive size meal at any Food Republic starting from $5!

    Our first visit we had the Clay pot chicken laksa and the clay pot seafood laksa, they were &6.90 each.
    The meal was mouth watering and the serves were so big we could not eat all of it. Soft drinks are $1.80 each.

    Another fantastic meal we had at Food Republic was a chicken murtabah, I have never seen such big murtabah before, once again it was perfect and cost $5.50.

    Tak Po: Great Breakfast Dim Sum

    by ozpaul Written Jan 27, 2013

    Great little restaurant in Chinatown for Dim Sum. We used to arrive here around 9:30 for breakfast – order a pot of Jasmine Tea and make our way through the menu. Excellent Char Siu buns. Bean curd was stunning, dumplings were superb. Very friendly staff and very inexpensive. Highly recommended.

    Favorite Dish: Dim Sum of all sorts

    Makansutra Gluttons Bay: Fine Hawker's Dining

    by virtually_cd Written Dec 3, 2012

    Bang-for-the-buck dining! --street food without the expected dirty, stinky feel; freshly cooked & just how you like them; pretty quick considering the number of customers (check out our pics to have an idea) ; choices galore, including exotic ones like the Stingray.

    Expect to share tables. Why not make the most of it & be friends with people who'd be sharing tables with you? :)

    Favorite Dish: The Szechuan Crab & sauteed Bokchoy were my favourites--If there's any food which could say, "Hi, I'm Singapore." I don't know why I feel these 2 should best do that :)

  • Komala Vilas Hotel: Paper in a Masala dosa

    by gunapalan Written Jul 6, 2012

    Me and my wife landed in Singapore on 22nd June. After the flight from Trichy we were hungry.
    We walked into Komala Vilas Hotel at Serangon Road, Little india. This is supposed to be a very old hotel serving Indian food. My wife ordered for a Masala dosa, a south indian favorite. In the middle she saw a black thing like a piece of tamarind. But, being an Indian wife she felt tamarind had no place in a Masala dosa. On exploring further she found it was a date sheet of a daily calendar. The guys were smart enough to replace it immediately, but we never went back to the
    place.

    Singapore local restaurants: The Fresh Local Food!

    by csordila Updated Jan 23, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Few cities in Southeast Asia can boast Singapore's fascinating ethnic brew. Where else in the
    world can you dip into the cultures of China, India and Muslim Malaysia all in one day, against
    a backdrop of ultra-modern Western commerce? Not only has Singapore's history of migration
    but it has created one of the world's great eating capitals.
    And, of course, if your credit card hasn't already taken a battering in the shops, the city's restaurants are some of the most stylish and innovative in the region.

    Favorite Dish: Food is the national obsession - and it's not difficult to see why. Sitting out under the stars at
    a bustling hawker centre with a few bottles of Tiger beer and diving into an enormous
    array of Asian dishes is one of the iconic Singaporean experiences. Sambal stingray,
    char kway teow, oyster omelette, chicken rice, clay-pot seafood, fish head curry, beef
    rendang…the list is as long as it is delicious.
