Solidly good

My 1st time back since the owner/chef packed up and left. 80% of the old menu seemed to be intact, but some favorites like the seabass are gone. Other favorites remain There is a choice of a 4 course set or a la carte for dinner. The set is a good deal for $88 Started with the scallop carpaccio... read more

Came to this restaurant in its earlier day. I must say the restaurant has a classier and better menu now. Came in a group of 4. 3 of us had a set dinner. 2 of us chose wine pairing. Each set dinner has 4 courses. I had Carpacio Hokkaido Scallop, Maine Lobster in Lobster broth, Wagyu stirloin beef with Wasabi... More

It was my first visit to Ember even though it has been around since 2002, and houses a lovely ambience exuding comfort, cosiness and intimacy all in one. The Mushroom Consomme (SGD$16.00), a clear dark soup looking like chicken essence, containing shimeji mushrooms and tortellinis of chicken and foie gras. The sapid, nearly-sharp taste of mushrooms of this soup made... 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...

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 was also pretty good and cosy. The... More

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.

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.
