Sum Yi Tai—which houses 3 concepts over 3 storeys in a conservation shophouse—is another Covid-19 casualty.
Sum Yi Tai was a popular hangout spot in the CBD which offered dim sum lunch and tapas-style dishes in a crimson-lit gangland bar. It has shut down its establishment at 25 Boon Tat Street because of the high rental in the CBD.

It’s an open truth — F&B businesses have not been having the easiest time during this COVID-19 period. With everybody staying in and the decreased footfall, there has been a massive plunge in sales in the F&B sector.
Even though many establishments have pushed out delivery and takeaway services, some have not been able to tide through. Whether it was the high rental costs or low profits, these burdens were too heavy to bear.
Here is a list of 30 F&B businesses in Singapore which are planning to or have already shut down for good during COVID-19. Nevertheless, we hope that this is not goodbye forever and we’ll see them come back stronger than ever.
In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, many establishments in the Food & Beverage industry have sadly been very hard hit. With recent measures being put in place by the government, a number of restaurants, bars and cafes across Singapore have been forced to close their shutters or move to takeaway and delivery options just so that we can try to flatten the curve of COVID-19 infections.
We have here a list of places that have temporarily closed their doors during this period and will not be having delivery or takeaway options. We sincerely hope that the situation gets better soon so these businesses can start their engines again to make back whatever losses they may incur right now.
May we all stay safe during this exhausting period!
