Restaurant details
Neighborhood: Chinatown
Description: We read about this restaurant in the official guide to Chinatown published by the Singapore Tourism Board, and we were lucky enough to find it on a recent visit to Chinatown. It's a small restaurant run by a husband and wife that serves a set menu of organic, vegetarian Chinese food. The menu changes each day, and during our lunch there were 3 choices: a vegetarian wrap, brown rice set, or a delicious tofu/noodle dish. The owner was very welcoming, spoke English, and suggested a meal for us since it was our first visit. The prices were very reasonable, and it had a nice, quiet atmosphere with pictures of the Dalai Lama and Buddhist statues on the walls. The restaurant has already been reviewed on Hungry Go Where, a food review site for Singapore: http://www.hungrygowhere.com/singapore/ci_yan_organic_vegetarian_health_food/

the food was amazing and this is why we stayed there. We got yelled at because we didn't choose what we wanted to eat right away. The owner is just not the nicest. However, we would go back because everything was delicious and try to breathe in and out so we don't get disappointed at his treatment. YES, food was this good.

I went alone and the place didn't disappoint. Had the pasta salad. And I must admit the raisins mixed in the salad actually gave the dish the kick it needed. Nice combination of baby carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, raisins, and baby bean sprouts. Thumbs up!

I'm not vegetarian and not inclined to become one, but Ci Yan offers some of the best veg meals I have ever had.

Good: Food is home-cooked, only organic, healthy, scrumptious and high quality; good portions; homely interior; lovely family that manages the place; convenient location - on Smith Street in Chinatown

Bad: Nothing

Ci Yan is a small place with amazing food! A perfect option at night when the restaurant at the temple is closed. They make different dishes every day and everything tastes very good! Try it if you like vegetarian food, and if you don't, try it anyway... you'll like it! ;-)

There is no printed menu, and you only get to select from the list of today's special on a blackboard. But I was very delighted with what I was offered, both healthy and delicious! Nothing too fancy, but simply great vegetarian food!
