With the makeup of Singapore’s population (predominantly Chinese, Indian and Malay), it is hardly surprising that the majority of restaurants fall into the Asian category. 


Chinese restaurants are aplenty, with Crystal Jade Golden Palace dishing up some of the best dim sum in town and offering an elegant setting for a classy evening Cantonese meal. For a romantic al-fresco atmosphere then head up to One Rochester, to dine amongst the foliage at the converted black-and-white colonial bungalow of Min Jiang at One North, where the Peking Duck is not to be missed.


If it’s curry you’re hankering after, the Rang Mahal at the Pan Pacific hotel has long enjoyed the reputation as one of Singapore’s most spectacular Indian restaurants, while Punjab Grill by Jiggs Kalra at Marina Bay Sands is also a sure-fire winner. 


For something more distinctly Southeast Asian, the Indochine chain rules the roost, specialising in fusion Southeast Asian/French cuisine. Indochine Waterfront is their most stunning property, where you can dine alongside the river with the CBD skyscrapers towering above you.


For more dining with a view, look no further than Singapore’s own celebrity chef Justin Quek’s restaurant Sky on 57 atop the skypark of the Marina Bay Sands hotel complex, which showcases a delectable array of Modern Asian Cuisine. Also within the Marina Bay Sands complex, those with cash to burn can be wowed by Sydney’s most famous chef Tetsuya Wakuda, and his buzzworthy restaurant, Waku Ghin, which dishes up innovative Japanese/European creations.
