Lovely lunch

Had lunch at Ember and found the lunch sets quite reasonable considering the upscale menu items. My friends and I each ordered the pan grilled sirloin with mushrooms and we all enjoyed it. I chose the pumpkin soup with bacon as my first course and it along with the bread were my favorites of the... read more

Little quantity, funny presentation of food, not a fine dining restaurant service. We both order a 4 set menu course with two starter, one main course and one dessert. The size of the starter is very small and ok. Me and my boyfriend order the the duck and Sakura Eli that the quantity is smaller than a lady palm size.... More

2nd visit to ember today and it definitely wasn't as pleasant and satisfying as the 1st. Had wanted to order the bouillabaisse but they failed to inform that it wasn't available till our orders were taken. Shouldnt the staff be briefed to inform diners what weren't available upon presenting the menu? Menu has changed and barramundi with clam gravy and... More

We dined as a group of four on Friday night. We arrived at 8.30pm and had a nice meal spending around $600 between us. It was an enjoyable experience until the end. At 10.30pm while we were finishing our wine and coffees the waiter presented us with our bill even though we hadn't asked for it then promptly stood with... More

Ember may not be Michelin star level yet but the food while simple is delicious. Pricing is fairly affordable as well.

Very good food with a friendly and professional service. We had the four courses suggestion with accompanying wines. Though it was a bit pricey overall a very good experience.

Really cosy place with great food and service and while the price is rather steep it's worth the money.

Dined with friends on a Friday night. Very good experience all round. Just formal enough to be special, without being stuffy, lively without being loud. Very good service, friendly, knowledgable about the menu, present without hovering, clearly well trained and well managed. Overall this restaurant is great for friends or for business. Ate the 4 course set menu with wine... More

We went for dinner and enjoyed the 4 course set menu with paired wines for an additional $30. Great value and exceptional food. Service was fabulous too. Highly recommended.

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.
