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).

Russian-style restaurant and bar.

I was surprised to find this place. Interesting design, different from the neighbours. Average Russian food, but good place to drink.

We took our friends to show them the real Russian food, and it was the best choice. First of all, food was fantastic. The restaurant itself has national Russian rustic spirit, staff is very friendly and polite. You should better book the table, because it's pretty small. PS beverages were so good!

The title sums up my review and oh yes, the borschtl soup was excellent too! Only note that our one order of soup which we said we'd be sharing, was served together with our 2 main courses so 1 main had to sit and wait. But having said that, would definitely go back again! Highly recommended!

Probably the one Russian restaurant left in Singapore. Nice "homely" decor. Great selection of drinks from Russia to Eastern Europe. Standard fare like shashliks are done well. Not much with regard to cuisine from the 'stans, though. Staff and service is, on the whole, friendly.

Came for drinks and snacks, stayed for dinner. My dining companions are somewhat well versed in their vodkas, and were suitably impressed with the variety and quality of the vodka on offer. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good- though I'm not a big fan of this kind of fare, I enjoyed the meal- some classics on the menu... More

Randomly picked this place for dinner due to its interesting menu. I have never tried russian food and i must say this is a surprise find. I thought that this will be serving up real gimmicky food, but the food is flavorful and hearty. Main dishes: Chicken, Lamb and Salmon Charcoal Grill (Shashlyk) We tried the most expensive on the...

A decent place to unwind after dinner for some good cocktails with a Russian twist, live music and delicious Russian desserts. Ordered Black Russian and Szatlotka and were not disappointed. For desserts we ordered the Napoleon cake which is good for people who don't like their desserts to be very sweet. Service is good wherein the staff were knowledgable about... More

This as a birthday present to my Russian girlfriend was definitely a surprise. Trying the Ukrainian and Armenian beer was definitely a good experience next to the food coming afterwards. Though to my (and her).experience the food was not well spiced and smaller than expected, but still enough to get you not hungry anymore. Prices were a different topic. In... 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.
