Lunch @ Ember

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... read 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

We used to love this restaurant before the change of chef. Most items are more or less the same on the menu now but there seems to be a finesse lacking to the food. Dinner here in the past was something we always looked forward to but I have to say our first visit back since Sebastian Ng left, left... More

A couple of dishes in the 4-courses dinner menu weren't available, which was a pity. Anyway, the appetizers were good, although the combination of foie gras and unagi was a little confusing. As for the mains, the lamb was deliciously tender. The Wagyu for 2 however, turned out a little flat although it was cooked to medium. Lastly, please double... More

Ember was highly recommended, and I must say, the menu looked extremely interesting. We had a reservation for 6 people at 7.30....... As we were seated, we were informed that on the Entree menu, the PorkBelly was not available, and there was only 1 portion of lamb left.... Also, Tarte Tartin not available for dessert....... really? Top restaurant, running out... More

Me and my wife enjoyed a wonderful evening at Ember as part of a 10 day visit to Singapore. The restaurant was highly recommended to us by friends and rightly so. The food and ambience were perfect. And the service was attentive yet relaxed, friendly yet very professional. Ember should be high on your restaurant booking list if you're visiting... More

The food was excellent. The set lunch was value for money. The steamed egg custard, mud-crab, asparagus & aonori was a great starter. Pan-seared Hokkaido scallops, orange & tarragon vinaigrette was a good combination. Pan-seared Angus Onglet was well done. For dessert, I highly recommend the Pistachio sponge, crumble and ice-cream crowned with a little ginger milk foam. If you... 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.
