Ember is one of those restaurants I've been back to many, many times over the years. I always like come here for lunch as they have a really good set menu for 32++. Although I must say I much prefer their old menu from the previous chef as they had more options to choose from. Also for the first time,... More

Business lunch here. Set menu was simple (three choices each of starter, main and dessert) but well though through. Food was delicious although a hungry person may find the portions on the small side. Service was OK although our server struggled with basic English and our order had to be repeated a couple of times. Was good enough however to... More

Dreadful service .. wine by the glass undrinkable and treated as a joke .. Oysters were good but decided to leave after that as it was a special christmas lunch and we couldn't even have a glass of decent wine .. Ive known this restaurant for many years and i will never go back ..

The restaurant has limited dishes, but they are all very good for the price you pay. I prefer eating there during lunch as it is a lot worth it. The menu does not deviate much from a dinner menu, but the price does. From the hot delicious sundried tomatoes bread to the desserts. It is served with lots of love... More

Restaurant Ember has quite a good reputation but a lunch there recently seemed to point up the worst aspects of nouvelle cuisine.It's quite good to have smallish portions at lunch-time but there are limits. The angel hair Pasta starter was small and tasteless. The main course of venison was a tiny piece of quite tasty meat served with very hard... More

This place has survived the fickle Singapore dining scene which in itself is a notable feat! While a bit on the salty side, each dish was beautifully presented and really delicious. We had the set dinner and really enjoyed the palate cleansers too. Lovely all in all! We will be back

Adore. Divine. I have no more superlatives. Superb food and great service. A chill lunch place with a expertly-culled set lunch menu. Off street parking was a breeze at lunch - why is 1929's in-house restaurant not more packed? Went to town with the foie gras (simply delectable), ebi pasta, chicken (perfectly baked) and a selection of deserts. My companion... More

One of the better restaurant that I have been to. Lunch is especially worth it. Probably would not be great as a romantic dinner location as there are a lot of echo from the glass panels.

Popped in here today for a quick lunch. I had the venison which, whilst well presented and generally tasty, was a bit too chewy for my liking. Not sure I'll rush back here.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
