CHEF CHAN.S RESTAURANT, #03-17 APERIA, SINGAPORE

The infamous CHEF CHAN'S RESTAURANT has moved out of National Museum and now relocated in level 3, APERIA Mall, Kallang Avenue in June 2015. The new restaurant is slightly bigger than that in the National Museum; having eleven (11) tables of about 4-6 people per table siting capacity in the common... read more

One of the best Chinese restaurants in town, their creative signature dishes will keep you coming back for more. Offering great food and excellent service since its inception, they have kept their consistency for high quality Chinese cuisine throughout the years. You will get to enjoy these in a oriental setting, filled with Chinese antiques from the collection of its... More

Getting from bad to worse these days, especially after the original chef sold the restaurant. We went on the dinner of the 4th day of lunar new year, opting for the $130 per head set menu. The abalone was too salty, the sharks fin soup has a strong stench from what probably feels like frozen crab meat, the beef dish... More

The taste of this every single dish is exquisite. The fried egg plant with salted egg and the crispy roast chicken is one of a kind. Portions a bit small though. Overall a satisfying experience for the taste buds. Coming from a Malaysian this is high praise.

I went there for a family gathering. My first time dining in a museum, so I was quite excited about it. The restaurant looked quite atas ;) We had our lunch in a private room with traditional Chinese decorations, antique Chinese furniture and cutlery, and a few photos of the chef and some celebrities, which looked out of place.

Let's get out of the way that this is one of the best Chinese restaurants I've ever experienced: the Hot and Sour Wanton soup, the Shark Fin with Roe soup, the Black Pepper beef plus the Duck with Herbs have been really worth the visit to this small restaurant hidden inside the National Museum. What really is not OK (worth... More

My family & I are Chinese Singaporeans. Lived in Singapore all our lives. Pretty much familiar with what the local Chinese restaurant scene has to offer. Visited Chef Chan's recently. The food was disappointing. Prawns cooked till dry and tasteless. The pork rib was drowning in sauce and the meat was crumbling. The fish soup was fishy. Had to heap... More

We were tired after spending time visiting the museum, so stopped at the Chef Chan's restaurant on the National Museum site. The room is very attractive and servers were polite. But the menu was crazy - they gave me the full-meal-deal menu and gave my wife the a la carte menu, so we could not compare ideas/offerings. For many items... More

Dudeeee this place has some tasty chicken. I mean seriously perfectly seasoned chicken. Chef Chan’s Restaurant is housed in the National Museum of Singapore. It is both a restaurant and a museum, putting on display the collection of expensive antiques that has been in his possession for decades, including furniture, ornaments, photographs, portraits and paintings. The restaurant places considerably more... More
