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).

Great service

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

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

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

Came here today to try the 2 course set lunch at $15++. I opted for the cabbage soup and pasta whilst my lunch companion chose the soup and the Chicken Kiev. Food was nice enough but not spectacular. Service was friendly, although the meals took a little while to prepare. There was a minor issue with my meal: it was... More

We went on a Saturday and I was very pleasantly surprised with this restaurant and can only assume that previous bad reviews are because the restaurant is ran differently during the week, although I haven't been on a weekday. The food was very tasty, especially the starters (mimosa salad, vareniky and vinaegret) and the portions generous enough. The main (kulebyaka... More

You can't find a lot of Russian restaurant here. So this one is definitely worth to try. Tuck in at Duxton hill. It have a nice and cozy ambience. Like the bar set up just when you enter the place. The beef stroganoff is a must try with a creamy rich taste. Had the beetroot and beef soup as well... More

What started as an adventurous night with a new cuisine turned into a horrid dining experience, leaving a bitter aftertaste of Russian food. Choice of mains for the restaurant week dinner menu was between the beef goulash and chicken patties with mash potato. Ordered both, and while the beef goulash was tasty, the meat chunks were tough and really dry.... More

We have visited Buyan for the Singapore Restaurant Week and we ended up being very disappointed by the food. We had the dinner menu (after the staff mistakingly pointing us to the lunch menu, twice...) Starters were fine. Mains had major issues: the goulash was overcooked (dry meat), the buckwheat groats were overcooked too. The minced chicken breaded cutlets were... 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.
