Now you can jio the whole gang

From Thai hot pot to Vietnamese cuisine, these halal-certified restaurants will allow you to celebrate Chinese New Year and beyond with more friends and family (in groups of eight, of course). 

Bali Thai


Expect a medley of flavours at Bali Thai. This year, the restaurant has introduced two CNY menus, Bountiful Harvest and Spring Blossoms, that offer Chinese cuisine with a unique Thai-Indonesian twist. The former ($48 per person) is good for four to six persons and includes Prosperity Thai Yusheng, Clear Tom Yum Seafood Soup or Fish Maw & Crabmeat with Golden Mushroom Soup, and Crispy Whole Fish with Lemongrass Sauce. 

The latter ($58 per person) has an expanded menu for up to eight persons, with King Prawns with Cereal, Hokkaido Squid stuffed with Chicken and Water Chestnut or Grilled Wagyu Beef, and Braised Crispy Noodles. Available for dine in and delivery.

Buffet Town


Located at Raffles City, Buffet Town is a family-friendly buffet destination with a large seating capacity of 300. There’s a vast international buffet spread here, and diners can look forward to relishing a variety of food served a la carte style. Fresh seafood, sashimi, Japanese teppan and robatayaki (grilled dishes), and a selection of Western and local delights are available. 

From now till Feb 21, the Auspicious Festive Buffet (from $32.80 for lunch, and $46.80 for dinner) offers highlights such as Sesame Barbecued Boneless Chicken, White Pepper Crab with Ginger and Scallion (dinner only) and Golden Cereal Crusted Australian Beef with Roasting Gravy. Prosperity Yusheng is available too.

So Pho


Besides mainstays such as Fresh Noodle with Grilled Lemongrass Chicken and Fried Spring Rolls, crunchy Imperial Spring Rolls, and Mango and Papaya Salad, the restaurant offers CNY delivery-only bundles for two and four persons (from $42.59). Choose from a selection of appetisers, main courses (we recommend the Pho Noodle Soup with Sliced Beef and Beef Ball) and drinks.

Suki-Suki Thai Hot Pot


CNY is always a good excuse to have hot pot or steam boat. Head to the newly opened HomeTeamNS Khatib for all-you-can-eat halal Thai hot pot buffet from $17.90 onwards. The restaurant serves an ensemble of sweet, sour, salty and spicy through six authentic Thai soup bases. Besides the familiar Tom Yum Soup, there’s the creamy Khao Soi broth (a Northern Thai curry soup), Tom Yum Yen Ta Fo (with sweet yen ta fo sauce made from fermented beancurd) and Sweet Basil Chicken Soup.

Diners can feast on over 40 different ingredients to pair with the soup bases, such as fresh thinly sliced beef, chicken, homemade fish paste, vegetables, mushrooms, tofu, pot dishes and other staples.
