Hugely popular both with locals and visitors, the Bugis Street Brasserie is situated in the luxurious Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London���s upmarket Kensington. This comfortable and chilled out bistro styled dining room is probably the most relaxed dining choice the glamorous four star Millennium Gloucester has to offer and, as such, it appears to have the most diverse crowd, ranging from businessmen with loosened ties to hungry tourists fresh from the sights and, of course, Kensington���s notorious ladies who lunch, putting their Louboutins up over dinner. The Bugis Street Brasserie is decorated in a neutral colour scheme, with tiled flooring, wood panelled bar and ceiling fans evoking an almost American feel, while service is (it perhaps goes without saying) of the very highest standard, both friendly and professional. Known for its Cantonese and Singaporean food, the Bugis Street Brasserie provides a sophisticated but authentic Eastern cuisine, served in a setting very different from the usual Asian restaurant.

Although a bit further away from the centre, this is a great little place to get to and indulge in some familiar Singaporean flavours. Come here for bak ku teh singaporean style, it's worth it (it might be seasonal or only on the specials list) I like the decor too. Just like the kopi tiams of old, but quite elegant.

I was staying at the Millennium Gloucester hotel and this is where I saw the advert for the restaurant. I went at around 6:30pm on a Tuesday evening so the restaurant was quiet - maybe 6 people in there. On entry the waiter pointed me to a table from the other side of the room. After around 5 mins I...

Great, authentic Singaporean food that is reasonably priced. I had the Laksa and it reminded me of the street stalls in Singapore. Other great dishes on the menu. Most of the clients were Chinese speakers or Singaporeans, good sign I will return!

Chinese Singaporean food is rare in Europe so this is a good opportunity to catch up. Food is tasty and not greasy. I mostly do take out since I like to eat in my room. Quite fast and food is loyal to my expectations. Very clean. A great discovery for my casual Chinese dinner.

Will definitely be back. It's a hidden gem as off the beaten track. Food was authentic and tasty / we had the Singapore laksa and bak ku teh. Good taste of home food. Lots to choose and try from menu. Service was decent and the toilets are kid friendly which helps when dining out with little ones! Portions are on... More

I was staying at the Holiday Inn (which is just opposite the restaurant) for a business conference, so being Singaporean, I was curious what “Singapore hawker food” tasted like in London. And I must say that having tasted “Singaporean food” in other countries, this is as authentic as it gets. I had the Penang Char Kway Teow, and my two... More

It serves "English" type (i.e. a poor comparison) Chinese food - i.e. sweet & sour dishes with that bright orange gluey sauce. (MSG?) The only "cultural" similarity was our misfortune to sit next to three Chinese gentlemen who indulged in the habit of slurping their food & talking with their mouths full of food. It wasn't expensive (for London) but... More

The calamari starter was tasty, could have been more spicy to be authentic. Singapore laksa was good, better still with the ground chili paste served on the side. My cousin enjoyed the nasi goreng. The waiter was not intrusive, just the right amount of attention.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
