Our first try of russian cuisine, and my husband & I both agreed that the food there is beyond our expectation. Thumbs up!!! Excellent food!!! We had meat khachapuri, which smell & taste equally awesome. The fragrance alone makes my husband & I craved for it. We also had shashlyk. The chicken, lamb & salmon were marinated & charcoal grilled... More

I am yet to meet anyone who is a FAN of Russian food, but there really should be some. A good place to start is Buyan, a great Russian restaurant in Singapore, with an incomparable wine list. The food is authentic (a Russian friend confirmed this). We tried two salads - The Olivier (also known as "Russian salad" and Mimosa... More

Buyan has both a bar and dining section. The bar is stocked with extensive range of close to 50 different types of vodka. The range of whiskeys offered is almost as impressive. I thought the masculine setting attracted a more serious and business like crowd. This is good for drinkers that prefers a quieter setting and to have a good... More

I was twice there. Musical band there is excellent. Pleasant atmosphere and arrangement. Restaurant has 2 floors: bar area+dinning area - ground floor, dinning zone plus open air bar located on second floor. Restaurant' furnishing - seems came from French or Dutch motif. My impression - Catherine Great style, very positive and romantic. Menu - designed with love, main intention,... More

Set lunch at normal time is S$18++ and quite good. Eapecially liked the shashlyk, good chicken and lamb with grilled vegetables. During the resaurant week, set lunch is S$25++ and the value of the meal was much lower. We had choice of lamb fried rice or croquette, just carbs and very little meat. Would try again after restaurant week is... More

It has an extensive bar with a few tables. There is also live band entertainment playing predominantly classic rock n blues. It's probably the only place in Singapore serving Russian wines and a variety of vodkas, and in a casual setting too. The menu consisted of Russian favourites and we only had Chicken Kiev (ok, this one is Ukrainian) and... More

What a waste of time. 20 staff milled around doing their best to avoid work while we waited 90mins for caviar. Caviar that doesn't take any cooking or preparation beyond moving from a jar to a plate!! We decided after waiting this long we were just going to pay for drinks and leave... They almost took as long to bring... More

I thought I need to write a comment here as some other reviews are really bad. We've been a group of 4 ladies and first it looked like there was no table. The staff then reshuffled people and we got a table. They were really friendly and the appetizers we ordered were tasty. Wine list great as well.

Miss K. and I embarked on a Russian lunch escapade at Buyan, named after a mythical Russian island in one local fairytale. To maximize the variety, we ordered different items from the 3-course lunch($25) menu. The unique Russian black rye bread served with velvety butter that resembled mini billiard balls were signs of... More
