Buyan invites you to enjoy dishes from Russia and the former Soviet Union, from homely stews to caviar indulgence. This is the very place to try the real taste of the world-known Russian borscht, pirozhki (small pies) or pelmeni (dough pockets filled with mixed meat).

Given the limited traditional Russian restaurants in this part of the world, this is definitely a gem. Helpful service staff will guide you through the menu and the warm ambience makes one feel like dining at home. There is also a good selection of alcoholic drinks to go with the dishes.

Katya Gabalova, the head of marketing and events at Buyan has been hands down, the highlight and key determinant for holding a special birthday celebration for my husband at the restaurant. Not only she went above and beyond her call of duty to ensure that the event was a smashing success, she took a special trip to the store to... More

This gem at Duxton is THE place to go if you've never had russian food before. My favourite dish of the night was the Pelimeni (Russian dumplings). The meat was flavourful and the skin of the dumplings just thick enough to soak up the broth it was in without being too heavy. We also enjoyed the Kulebyaka (Salmon Pie). We... More

Awesome food but a little pricey for the portion given. Staff are commendable. Manager who gave detailed recommendations on wine, staff who are attentive and makes you feel at home.

Lovely little restaurant pub, Buyan Russian Restaurant and Bar is great. Food was cooked to perfection and a great little band playing live music.

Went to this small Russian restaurant in the trendy Duxton Hill area of Chinatown with friends. Lovely area with nicely restored shophouse bars and restaurants. This restaurant is owned and run by Indians, and I couldn't help wishing they had stuck with Indian cuisine. The only Indian element was the wine, which is not what you really want. I know... More

Service was really good in this restaurant. My friend and I ordered a soup to share and it came in two smaller individual portions.

The place has the decor of a log cabin that reminds me of a hunting lodge in Kolomenskoe Moscow. Food we ordered are good and enjoyable - Chicken Kiev, Mushroom Julien, Potato Vareniki and Olasye Karat. Very filling so we were not able to try the desserts! We enjoyed the recommended drinks too - Black Russian, White Russian, Szarlitka and... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
