The Orange Lantern Vietnamese Cuisine

HarbourFront Centre
VivoCity > restaurant: 4 mins walk

The Orange Lantern legacy seems to be going strong. Replete with orange lanterns, bright-hued Vietnamese paintings and orange walls, there are value-for-money set meals here and yummy signatures like the special beef noodle soup and rice paper roll with chicken at this Vietnamese restaurant. Unpretentious chow at its best.

Empress Jade is one of the restaurants in Singapore that does old school Chinese food with modern class.

Chinois by Susur Lee

Resorts World Sentosa
VivoCity > restaurant: Monorail, 1 stop

Situated in Resorts World Sentosa, this is famed celebrity chef Susur Lee’s fusion (contemporary Chinese with a western twist) restaurant. This menu is an impressive selection of Chinese staples and local favorites (they even have chili crab here). Dishes to try include the crispy Peking duck skin with five-spiced foie gras and shredded duck, and steamed eggplant roulade, sprinkled with bonito flakes and flash-fried mei chai (preserved vegetables).

The Forum, Resorts World Sentosa
VivoCity > restaurant: Monorail, 1 stop

Baits is one of the many great restaurants at Resorts World Sentosa. The large space and high ceilings were built for dining in large groups. A stunning dish that you simply must order is assam style fish cooked in a mouthwatering assam (tamarind) gravy with eggplant, pineapple, ladies fingers and tomatoes. The zesty chili crab and BBQ stingray are also good bets.

Marina at Keppel Bay
VivoCity > restaurant: Taxi, 5 mins

This port of call has a nice ambiance and is one of the best restaurants in Singapore for power breakfasts by the marina. Never mind its rather inaccessible location, as it’s a short taxi ride away from VivoCity.

Takumi Restaurant

Marina at Keppel Bay
VivoCity > restaurant: Taxi, 5 mins

Already a success in Tokyo, this robatayaki and teppanyaki restaurant is filling up tables every night. Here’s why—the food is amazing, the service is fantastic (then again, this is the Japanese we’re talking about), and the harborfront view is serenely beautiful. The à la carte menu is extensive and one of its star dishes is the sizzling rock shabu shabu, although you’d be hard pressed to find something on the menu that isn’t good. If you really want to be blown away, call ahead and have executive chef Nishi prepare a 12-course kaiseki menu for you. Trust us, you’ll be impressed.
