We are dining here frequently and it's a must to always order the Samsui Ginger Chicken. I bet you will also love it. The price is definitely reasonable for a location such as Paragon.

We liked visiting the outlet for home cooked simple Chinese dishes. Our favourites include the chicken, minced pork dishes. We enjoyed the brisk and friendly service.

This restaurant is our all-time favorite Chinese restaurant here in Singapore. It's our go-to place whenever we're too hungry or not feeling too adventurous to try out new food. We've been here too many times and each time ordered different items from the menu, with exception of a few items which we must order each time. We alway order the... More

We totally understand that being in Orchard Road means rental cost is high but charging even the smallest things such as wet tissues is something not quite "Asian" hospitality. The food is good but given the price (which is not cheap), portionwise is unimpressive.

Hoping to have different experience since I hail from samsui village. But sadly the atmosphere more like fast food Chinese. Oily food and quality has declined. Service they try but very superficial.

Soup Restaurant serves authentic Singapore Chinatown Heritage cuisine such as the steamed dishes, Ah Kon/Ah Por Fan Shu Leaves, and double-boiled herbal soups. Their Samsui Ginger Chicken, (with succulent chicken dipped in fragrant ginger sauce, wrapped with fresh lettuce), is in great demand. They also serve Double Boiled Whole Coconut with Black Chicken Soup, Half Steamed Half Fried Little Pomfret,... More

They've some staple dishes such as coconut soup, smoked chicken with ginger, and minced pork with salted fish; which are recommended. May suit a more Asian palate Seating is not the most comfortable. Service is erratic

@TheKuoKnows The Samsui women were once the backbone of Singapore's construction industry, quite literally. Their jobs included carry building material to construction sites on their backs. They also ate some of the most basic but,nonetheless, deliciously nutritious street-foods, which gave them the energy to perform their arduous chores under unforgiving conditions. The Soup Restautant has taken Samsui street-food and elevated... More
