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

One unusual thing we notice is everything on the menu is priced for pax and for "minimum 2 persons". Guess they don't like single diner? One of Chef Chan specialty is crispy roasted chicken. It cost $34 for a whole chicken on the ala carte menu. We quickly figure out that getting the $38 per pax set lunch is a... More

This is a good Chinese restaurant in the National Museum of Singapore. Odd policy of insisting that each dish be ordered with a minimum of two portions - and watch out for the expensive Chrysanthemum Tea ($12). But the prices of the entrees are reasonable, and at lunch time indeed one order of two is sufficient for two people. The... More

Entering through a National Museum to get into a restaurant is an extraordinary experience.Once you step into the restaurant, the decor offers you another experience. The place is rather small, decor ethnic Chinese, crude but sophisticated. Service was unobtrusively efficient. There are three signature dishes --- crab shark's fin, pepper beef and specially fried chicken. We have ordered all together... More

Chef Chan's restaurant is "hidden" inside the Singapore National Museum, though you don't have to visit the museum to get to the restaurant. The interior is classic Chinese, while the menu offers an exciting modern interpretation of Chinese cuisine. I tried the chicken in wasabi sauce which was just WOW. Staff is very friendly and professional. Not cheap, but well... More

This restaurant, with only about 7 tables is set in the National Museum, and provides an atmospheric place for a special meal. Service is attentive (possibly a touch to much), and the food is great - authentic and delicious Chinese food. The only catch is the price - between 2 people we had the set menu, and a bottle of...
