As a Malaysian Chinese girl who has lived in Singapore too, I cannot recommend enough this restaurant or even for takeaway. It's real, authentic Singapore and Malaysia fare that reminds me of being home, the laksa, hainiese chicken rice, nasi lemak etc is out of this world. Really incredible. Portions are generous, service is homely yet professional and I wish... More

The restaurant is family run and they pay personal attention. The food is Singaporean and the best meals are made of vegetarian 'meat.' The vegetarian lamb curry is excellent. They have a great house wine.

We love Singapore Orchid for dine-in and take-away. The rendang was delicious - very tender meat and such an authentic taste. Ananda is a very talented chef and a wonderful host. If you can, eat in the restaurant rather than take-away as we were there on a Saturday night and it was very quiet.

After reading good reviews about the food at the Singapore Orchid we decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed! The food was so good! Fantastic flavours and everything was cooked to perfection. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food is a very good price. What does let the place down a bit is the decor,... More

I have lived in Singapore for 15 years, so know about Singapore food. The food in this restaurant is really like it is in Singapore, the veg dish was excellent and the chicken rice was perfect. The service is very pleasant, atmosphere nice, prices reasonable. We will definitely return

There are a lot of healthy choices from the menu and staff are friendly. As of the moment, parking is an issue.

Having lived in Singapore from 24 years and recently returned to live in the UK, I was very excited when I discovered Singapore Orchid. My husband and I find most Chinese restaurants in the UK are very disappointing and the food does not taste at all like we were used to eating in Singapore. That is until we discovered Singapore...

Thank your very much for your great review on our food. Having lived in Singapore yourself you can understand why there are so few Singapore cuisine restaurants. We have to work very hard to keep up to a good standard and authenticity on busy weekends as we do a lot of takeaway and delivery. More

My family and I visited on Xmas Eve and had another fabulous meal. The duck dish my mother had was a revelation and could become a favourite. The banana leaf fish was superb, as was the sate tofu. We've never had a bad meal yet and the lychee martin's are to die for. Will return in the New Year.

My wife and I visited this restaurant as we had been here on a few occasions a while ago and had a great time and food. Unfortunately this time we found things had changed. The food was excellent but the service was really disappointing. The owner who had always served us well in the past was totally immersed with the... More

the famed "Street Food of Singapore" available in the Hawker centres of Singapore.
