Superb cantonese cuisine in outstanding setting

Excellent Cantonese cuisine - this restaurant can mix traditional Cantonese cuisine with some fusion elements (ie foie gras). Beautiful dishes, very nice setting - the hotel looks marvellous and inviting.

Top notch Dim Sum. We were lucky to get the last table for the 2nd sitting on a Sunday. This is top quality stuff, including the service. Not cheap though & not quite as good as their sister Hotel in Bangkok. Best that we found in S'pore. Next best was Red Star but that's on a different level. Worth it... More

The thought of this place makes my mouth water. Came here with my boyfriend the first time around, and visited the second time with friends. We enjoyed the Dim Sum buffet and had to pretty much get lifted out of the place due to food coma. Reminds me I need to visit ASAP!

Being a tourist in a foreign country can be hard. However, the members of staff at Cherry Garden explained what was an 'appropriate amount' of food which is really helpful as we didn't know how many dishes to order! The food was incredible...The Peking Duck was better than any English Chinese take-away! Good selection of drinks but the drinks were... More

This restaurant is quite small given that it is in the Mandarin Oriental hotel. Therefore reservations are a must, especially for lunch as it is popular with the business crowd. The service was excellent, and the food was innovative and unusual. Expensive but worth a visit.

We had just flown in from Sydney. Did not what to go far, had not used the Cherry Garden on any of the previous visits, because Singapore is awash in choice. Staff exceptional, friendly and helpful. Food fresh and exceptional quality and a very good price point

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
