Good food and not too pricey

We had dinner at Restaurant Ember on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was full. Food was very good, especially the short ribs which we had for our main course. It was done perfectly; tender and juicy. The bread, which was served fresh and hot was excellent; we had quite a few servings. Service... read more

Had a nice dinner here with some friends, food was alright though we would have preferred it if there was more focus on the natural flavours of the food. All in all an OK experience for a mid-high price range restaurant.

Have been there since they started, still getting great food and top class service. Particularly liked the professional response when my invited friend tried to pay for the meal. The lunch was a gastronomical experience with a sensual scallop salad that tickles your taste senses, the cod was superbly blended with a tangy vegetable potato mash and totally satisfied with...

Myself and a few colleagues were there on Tues for an impromptu dinner after our initial location was unavailable. The restaurant housed in a chic hotel by the hip stretch of Chinatown was cosy with its soft furnishings but also elegant. Service was discreet yet attentive which made me feel like I was drinking from a perpetually filled glass. There... More

We went there after a long break because there was a special set menu with Norwegian seafood. (1) The food was good, interesting but not unforgettable. I enjoyed every course so it was good and would recommend it. At $120 it was tremendous value for money - i think at least 5 or 6 courses. (2) for an additional $50... More

After hearing so much good reviews on Ember, decided to try their set lunch on 27-Jan. We ordered their signature CrispyTofu with foie gras and steamed egg Custard, Truffle Sea bass and duck leg confit , pear crumble and hot choc lava. It was shiok. We love the food and definitely will come back for more.

My wife had read reviews and didn't tell me! Apparently "the kitchen closes at 9.30 and the tarte tartin was a disappointment". Well we thought it was great. The food was fantastic. I had the shared rib eye which as perfect. And ordered the TT (while my wife quietly cringed). It duly arrived after the pre-ordained hour (we'd ordered it... More

Recommended by friends, brought my wife for our anniversary dinner. With the nice ambiance and highly attentive and professionally friendly service staff, we were in for a memorable night. The only letdown was probably the most important part i.e. the food itself; or perhaps our expectations were just too high. Though presentation of food was well done, the food itself... More

Definitely one of the best value-for-money restaurants in Singapore, esp their lunch set but it does get rather noisy as ambience is definitely not their selling point.

On my list of restaurants to try and was not disappointed. I would be back for the artichoke soup alone which was amazing. A small, well priced menu in an intimate restaurant setting. However, I would note that even though they have just renovated, they could do with some table cloths so that it doesn't look so "ikea canteen" style.... 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.
