Guide to Restaurants in Orchard Road Singapore

Orchard Road Guide

Orchard Road is one of the most well-known streets in Singapore. Apart from being a major tourist attraction and the most popular shopping area, it is also where locals go to when they are meeting friends. Here are a list of restaurants in Orchard Road that you can check out when you are in town.

Aoki Restaurant


One of the must-order dishes at Aoki Japanese Restaurant is the Chirashi – a bowl of sushi rice topped with sashimi. If you’ve had Aoki’s Chirashi ($35) before, I am sure you will agree with me that it is happiness in a bowl. I’d come back again and again just for this.

Arteastiq Tea Lounge

Akanoya Robatayaki

Akanoya specialises in robatayaki. For the uninitiated, robatayaki is a technique in Japanese cuisine; customers sit around an open counter where fresh ingredients are displayed, and they can just point to order. The chefs will then grill the ingredients like seafood, meat, and vegetables over charcoal, and serve it to the customers using a long wooden paddle.

If you are looking to splurge on a nice Japanese meal, Akanoya at Orchard Parade Hotel is the place to go.

Basilico Restaurant

Away from the main shopping Belt, you have Basilico Restaurant – a beautiful restaurant that serves a very good Italian buffet – at The Regent Singapore.

Though the buffet spread is slightly limited, the restaurant more than makes up for it with the quality of the food. The antipasto counter, in particular, has fantastic choices.

Bedrock Bar & Grill

Bedrock Bar & Grill at Pan Pacific Serviced Suites is a modern New York style steakhouse. The restaurant boosts a dark, sexy, and classy interior; making it the ideal place to bring your client for a business luncheon, or your date for a romantic dinner.

The menu is small and concise. There are three US beef – 300g Dry Aged Ribeye ($96), 220g Tenderloin ($89), and 400g USDA Prime Black Angus Ribeye ($96); and three Australian beef – 400g Ribeye ($79), 350g Bone in Striploin ($69) and 500g Porterhouse ($89). For those in a big group, get the massive Tomahwak Steak for the table share.

Custard bun

Crystal Jade Golden Palace

Crystal Jade Golden Palace at Paragon is a modern restaurant, with a sexy and dark tone. Most Chinese restaurants are quite boring when it comes to the interior decor. Not Crystal Jade Golden Palace. It is definitely one of the most gorgeous Chinese restaurants that I’ve been to.

I can see myself coming back for dim sum during lunch because it has a nice ambience, and the central location makes it an ideal place for meet-ups. On weekends, it’s almost impossible to get a table without reservations, so make sure you call early in advance.

Everything with Fries

Even though I am not a big fan of Everything with Fries, they are affordable and you can get pretty decent Western food. The outlet at Orchard Central is more like a fast food restaurant where you can get a quick fix before catching a show in town.

Fukuichi Japanese Dining

Nestled in the quiet Triple One Somerset, Fukuichi Japanese Dining serves decent Japanese food at pocket-friendly prices. If I am meeting my friends in Orchard Road, I will definitely go to Fukuichi, it is my newest go-to place when craving for Japanese food.

Ippudo Ramen

Ippudo Ramen

For me, there is no doubt that Ippudo at Mandarin Gallery is one of the best ramen restaurants in Singapore. If I am craving for a bowl of ramen, this is the place that I will go.

Jade Palace Seafood Restaurant

From the outside, Jade Palace Seafood Restaurant at Forum the Shopping Mall does not look like much. In fact, you will probably miss it unless you are familiar with the restaurant. However, this restaurant is a popular spot because the food here is always consistent and delicious. The claypot rice, in particular, is one of the best around, and you must try it when you are dining there.

kith Cafe

Kith Cafe Park Mall

I like the new Kith Cafe at Park Mall. Since its opening last month, I’ve been there a few times, and it has quickly become my favourite hangout place in town

Kith Cafe is a nice cafe to dine at when you are in Orchard, especially if your friends are on a budget, as most of their items are reasonably-priced under $20.

#01-01E Park Mall
Tel: +65 6338 8611
Daily: 8am – 10pm

Shiok Maki

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar is a small eatery nestled a corner of Wisma’s Food Republic which serves quality Japanese food at affordable prices. And the one dish that makes me go back again and again is their Shiok Maki. It is an maki made up of avocado, unagi and aburi salmon, drenched with the most amazing cheesy sauce that is seemingly a legit mixture of mayo and mentai, and completed with a generous topping of tobiko. The Shiok Maki is hands down one of the best things I’ve ever had in life. Trust me, I am not exaggerating.

Crabmeat Linguine

Marmalade Pantry

Marmalade Pantry needs no introduction. It is one of the See and Be Seen Places in town – perfect for lunch, afternoon tea, dinner or drinks. We love their signature Crabmeat Linguine. And they have really good desserts too! Go for the Toffee Date Pudding, Salted Caramel Cheesecake, and Lemon Cupcake.

Lemon Tart

Marmalade Toast

One of my favourite places in Orchard Road, Marmalade Toast by the Marmalade Pantry group, is a hidden gem. Even though it has been around for very long, surprisingly, not many people know about them. It is the place to go for a quick bite (they offer sandwiches and salads), or for a coffee break (with a slice of cake).

Menya Musashi

Menya Musashi

Menya Musashi offers three different types of ramen – ‘White’, ‘Red’ and ‘Black. The classic is the ‘White’ Ramen, a hearty bowl of springy noodles in a thick and rich tonkatsu broth. Our favourite – and what we would go back to enjoy time and time again – is the ’Red’ Ramen which comes with a spicy and intense broth.

Noodle Stories

Noodle Stories by Tunglok

Where do you go to when you are craving an honest Chinese meal that is unpretentious, satisfying and affordable? Our recent lunch at Noodles Stories by TungLok Group gave us an answer. The use of fresh ingredients in every dish made it such a stupendous meal, and we left with very happy tummies.

Highlights include Wanton with Black Vinegar and Chilli Oil (S$6 for 6 pcs), Pork and Cabbage Pan-fried ‘Jiaozi’ (S$6 for 4 pcs), ‘Zhajiang’ Noodles (S$8) and their signature ‘Biang Biang’ Noodles (S$10.80).

Oriole Cafe Singapore

Outback Steakhouse

Outback Steakhouse

Outback Steakhouse, the largest steakhouse chain in the world, is a household name and its flagship store at Millenia Walk has been in Singapore since 2000. It recently opened a second outlet at orchardgateway.

The menu is much more comprehensive than we thought, and even if you are not a fan of steaks, you will be spoilt for choice with its array of mains.

Paul Bakery Desserts

Paul Bakery

Paul Bakery has opened in Singapore with much fanfare, and it’s not difficult to understand why the French boulangerie/patisserie is packed with customers everyday.

For those who have been to Europe, Paul Boulangerie is the place for them to relive those wonderful memories of having a warm croissant and a cup of coffee during winter. For others who have heard much about Paul from their friends, the new restaurant in Singapore gives you the chance to have a taste of Europe.

Pete's Place

Pete’s Place

One of the oldest Italian restaurants in Singapore, Pete’s Place at Grand Hyatt Singapore is an off-the-radar place that not many people know about.

Checkered table cloth, brick walls, wine cellars, and friendly staff greeting us as we stepped in, it did not take us long to fall in love with this hidden gem in town that radiates an undeniable rustic enchantment.

Pique Nique

Pique Nique

It is difficult to find a nice cafe in Orchard road that serves decent food at a reasonable price, and Pique Nique does just that.

The food — mac & cheese ($12-16), hot dogs ($8.5-11), burgers ($10-13), all day breakfast ($7.5-13.5), and desserts ($4-8) — is not life-changing, but most of them are reasonably priced and I will definitely go there when I want a light snack in between meal times.

PS Cafe

PS Cafe is a European-style glasshouse nestled in Dempsey Hill. We’d like to think of it as the perfect place for a lazy weekend breakfast, a quaint afternoon tea, an unforgettable romantic dinner with your date, and for a girls’ night out – it is the place to go when you want to dine at a trusty restaurant with your favourite people.

Mango Salad

Suanthai Restaurant

I like to go to the Killiney area for food as it is within town, yet slightly off-the-track. Most of the restaurants there are usually not very crowded; you can easily walk in and get a table without making any reservation.

However, if you are thinking of going to Suanthai Restaurant after reading this review, make sure you call to reserve a table – the $19.9++ Thai Buffet is one of the most popular options in town, and they are always packed during mealtimes.

Takashimaya Japanese Food Court

Takashimaya Basement Japanese Food Court

Takashimaya at Ngee Ann City had revamped their basement Japanese food court. The current space is bigger and it has more Japanese eateries – like Baikohken, Nakajima Suisan, Romankan Yokohama, Tsuru Koshi Udon, and Yonehachi – which serve cheap and good Japanese food.

If you haven’t been there for a while, maybe it’s time to check it out when you are looking for a place to eat in Orchard.

Taste Paradise at ION Orchard is one of my favourite dim sum restaurants in Singapore. The food is always consistently good, try the char siew sou and custard bun when you are there.

Tatsuya Japanese Restaurant

A stalwart of the local dining scene, Tatsuya is where in-the-know locals go for top quality Japanese food. It comes with a price, of course. Omakase – where the chefs decide the menu for dinners based on the guests’ preferences and the freshest ingredients available – here is S$280++/pax for 8-10 course dinner. We would suggest going for their set lunches. The Sashimi Bento (S$45), Sushi Bento (S$45) and Bara Chirashi (S$35.90) sets offer excellent value.

The Sushi Bar

The Sushi Bar

The Sushi Bar at Far East Plaza serves the standard dishes like sushi, sahimi, Japanese-style pastas and donburis, but if you only have room for one dish, you must try the much-lauded Salmon Aburi Sushi (S$14.50). I am happy to report that it lives up to its hype, and it is very addictive satisfying. As it is, The Sushi Bar is already very popular, so try to go there during off peak hours, or be prepared to wait in line.

Tim Ho Wan

Tim Ho Wan

Tim Ho Wan, the cheapest 1 Michelin Star dim sum restaurant from Hong Kong, is now available at The Atrium @ Orchard, Plaza Singapura today. Opened by Chef Mak Kwai Pui (previously from Lung King Heen at Four Seasons Hong Kong), Tim Ho Wan has gained a strong following over the years and long queues are a common sight at his restaurants. Fans of the legendary baked char siew buns must make a trip there.

Tonkichi Restaurant

Another place to go for Tonkatsu is Tonkichi Restaurant which has three outlets in Orchard – Orchard Central, Isetan Scotts, and Ngee Ann City.

For those of you who have not been to Tonkichi before, it has a menu that focuses on sinful but oh-so-good deep-fried food. Most people would probably go for the signature Kurobuta Kata Rosu Set ($32.9), Rosu Katsu Set ($22.9) or Hire Katsu Set ($20.9). For seafood lovers, they have options like the Mixed Seafood Katsu Set ($25.9), and Oyster with Rosu Katsu Set ($26.9).

TungLok XiHe

TungLok XiHe Peking Duck

Where do you go to when you are beat from a whole day of shopping, laden with shopping bags and famished from all the walking? And you are just beat from the whole day of hubbub that you want nothing but familiar and hearty food to soothe the senses?

Well, if your craving is leaning towards Chinese food, then your answer is TungLok XiHe Peking Duck, an outlet that offers a classic menu of modern Beijing cuisine.

There are many Chinese establishments that impressed us and left us good memories, but TungLok XiHe is one that is timeless. We love its concise menu and how it does not differ too much from its origins – nothing but the comforting familiarity of Chinese food at competitive prices. It is the kind of place that you can host your business associates, throw a celebration or to simply gather with your close ones.

Wild Honey Scotts Square

Wild Honey

In a city that has seen almost every restaurant and café serving brunch on weekends, Wild Honey has done remarkably well. It is one of the first few places that offers all-day brunch. It seems to have the right formula: brunch food made from produce that is sourced from the best in-season markets over the world – with very familiar flavours that would appeal to diners of all age. There is no wonder both Wild Honey branches at Mandarin Gallery and Scotts Square are always packed.

Yakitori Emmau Mother's Day

Yakitori Emmau

Yakitori Emmau at level four of ION Orchard is the second franchise of the Japan’s No. 1 Izakaya restaurant. The interior is East Village-esque, the very feeling of dining in a Japanese restaurant in NYC. I also like the fact that most of the service staff are Japanese. They have decent food at acceptable prices. I will definitely drop by if I want a quick meal in town.
