23 Restaurants In Singapore With No Service Charge – More Money For More Food

Eateries In Singapore With No Service Charge

At times, we often find ourselves belabouring over how expensive our meals are in Singapore. This is partly due to the high price point already tagged to our meals, but the scary figure on the bill is only exacerbated by the addition of GST and service charge.

Sure, we understand the necessity of including service charge into our bills and there does not go a day when we are not grateful for the high standards of service we receive during our meals. This goes without saying that when service is exemplary, paying that extra money for service charge is worthwhile.

But there are those days when we long for just a cheap, affordable meal. And what if we told you that there are dining establishments in Singapore which offers you the same meals but without the addition of service charge?

Here are 23 Places In Singapore With No Service Charge. Yes, that means money for more food! You are very welcome.
