ember used to be great value for a lunch escapade. however new menu meant that it no longer offers value for money as a set lunch. food seems to be disappointing with a new chef helming it. reckon they have lost many of us regular diners.

We very much enjoyed our meal here. The ambience was quiet and comfortable and there were sufficient people eating there even on a Tuesday evening to make us feel good about being there. The unusually warm foie gras with Asian five spices was a melt in the mouth experience, the venison was perfectly medium rare and the lemongrass and lime... More

Ember was the best dining experience I had on my short vacation in Singapore. It compares favourably to good restaurants in Australia. We had dined at several Michelin hatted restaurants in Europe on the first leg of our vacation and were finding most Singaporean offers to be sub-standard lukewarm bain-marie smorgasbord fare. (Buffet appears to pass for good dining in... More

We have been faithful patrons of this restaurant since we were introduced to it by a friend. This was when Ember was managed by its original owner/chef. Food and service were good. We have even brought friends there and they in turn introduced others to the place. There was then a change of management or owner, hence, the chef changed... More

Came back to Ember for lunch this week after a gap of a few years. Opted for the set lunch and chose the fois gras, pork belly and the creme brûlée. The fois gras was good but the pork belly and the creme brûlée were both disappointing. No issues with the service but the quality of the food could be... More

Read from some reviews from bloggers like ladyironchef but seems that the review is certainly overrated. Too expensive for low quality food sold at a high price "pseudo-fine dining". $30++ for not so tasty food with horrible service. Had set lunch but the Service was atrocious. We were in rush of time and reminded the waiter of that. Asked for... More

Unlisted_C, Public Relations Manager at Ember, responded to this review

Dear Tsuyoshi2016, First of all, we would like to apologize for the late response. We looked into this matter immediately when we received it and had to do some internal investigations. Secondly, we would like to apologize as well for the poor experience. This is not the standard of Restaurant Ember and certainly, not within the standards of the group.... More

The bread served was warm and good. Main meal of pasta was ok. Chocolate lava cake for dessert. It was ok overall but I was expecting better quality of food for the price paid.

I went several times at Ember for lunch and was never disappointed all the contrary. This is one of my favourite French cuisine place in Singapore and has the right pricing for it. The waiters are kind and efficient, the bread is freshly baked and reminds me of Paris style petits pains with light spice flavors. The Foie gras poêlé... 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.
