Loved everything about this place. Right from the decor to the service and of course the food. Very clever way of presenting the menu in a pack of cards - as the menu changes often. The food was a fusion highlighting our local Singapore flavours. I have to say, how creative the team is, coming up with the amazing flavours.... More

We arrived at the restaurant at 8:30 and we got our food at 10pm and the restaurant was quiet (only 2 other tables). We had to ask for menu multiple times and they only had 5 sets of menu which was hand written in paper cards with no description so we had to guess what the food will be like.... More

My daughter suggested this restaurant for my 54th bday celebration - couldn't have been nicer. Chef Addis and his team scored in every area - variety, creativity, presentation, and especially taste. (Great service too). Dibs will be our go to celebration venue.

Went for dinner with friends and was impressed at how cleverly all the dishes were created. A lot of thought and creativity is behind each dish, multiple flavours that are carefully constructed to complement each other. Great presentation too. Each dish came with an explanation that makes you admire the innovation behind it. Very highly recommended for true gourmands.

To start with the menu is a deck of handwritten cards. Reason: it changes all the time and it easy to update. Divided into starters, mains and desserts, there isn't a long list of choices. And each course has a DIBS? Special where the chef surprises you with a dish. Since there were 4 of us, we were able to... More

When we were first asked for the menu we were stunned at its presentation. Pretty unusual and confusing but the chef soon explains it. There isn't a lot to choose from just 5 dishes per course. There aren't any pictures of the food. So it was rather exciting to see how it would turn out. I like the idea that... More

We went to this restaurant with not much expectations. Firstly, we were very well greeted by manager Jose, a very friendly spaniard who made us feel at home. He also demonstrated that he is a very well mannered waiter and sommelier. Regarding the food, it was really high quality skilled cooking which took us by surprise (see pictures). We have... More

Unassuming and understated, yet the food is way beyond awesome! Looks are deceiving indeed! I can't really describe the food accurately because I'm not sure if adjectives have been invented for them yet hahahahha One thing for sure, it makes you feel like having seconds, which you really might just do and not forgetting their Inedit Damm beer, it's damm...

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.
