Riverside, Singapore



You're spoiled for choice when eating at the riverside. However, prices tend to be slightly inflated by Singaporean standards, so avoid any place that needs to use touts to get customers. The western end of the river (around Robertson Quay) houses a significant Japanese expat community, and consequently the Japanese restaurants nearby serve up some of the best fare outside of Tokyo. The best places to splurge are Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay, which have many riverside restaurants.

111 North Bridge Rd. Open: Daily from 8:00 am.m to 10:00 p.m.
Fast food restaurant that serves vegetarian Indian food on a banana leaf instead of burgers and fries. Worth a visit for the cognitive dissonance and good food, with massive meal sets under SGD5.

Lau Pa Sat
18 Raffles Quay (near Raffles Place MRT Station). Open: 24 hours.
A nicely done up Victorian-style hawker centre but a little pricier and hence quieter than most. The satay here is famous though, and there's a long row of outdoor stalls on the south side (open only in the evening), with Fatman Satay generally getting the best reviews.

60 Robertson Quay #01-02.
This lovably quirky cafe-delicatessen is justly renowned for its gourmet breakfasts, featuring not only the usual pancakes and toasts but more offbeat options too. Breakfast cost around SGD12 and fruit juice cost SGD5.

60 Robertson Quay #01-13. Open: Daily from 11:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Possibly the best of Singapore's many ramen restaurants. This branch of an Osakan restaurant in Japan serves up generous portions of authentic Japanese noodles. A meal here cost around SGD12.

Inle Myanmar Restaurant
111 North Bridge Rd. Open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. 
This authentic little eatery is run by Singapore's tiny Burmese community, many of whom are gem traders in the office block above. The food is an intriguing mix of Thai and Indian influences. A typical meal cost SGD5-10. Try the chicken curry weekday lunch set.

81A Clemenceau Ave #01-18/19 (UE Square).
Stylish Japanese-style charcoal barbeque joint, with a vast selection of wagyu (Japanese beef) and side dishes. Vegetarians need not enter. Typical meal cost SGD35.

IndoChine Waterfront
1 Empress Place.
Directly opposite Boat Quay on a terrace outside the Asian Civilisations Museum. The restaurant offers Vietnamese, Lao and Khmer foods with gorgeous views of the river. Great place for a romantic dinner and reservations highly advisable. A meal should cost around SGD80. 

Jumbo Seafood
20 Upper Circular Road #B1-48 (The Riverwalk).
Well-located outlet of the popular seafood chain famed for their chilli crabs, a Singapore specialty. Jumbo has another central outlet at Riverside Point, just across the river from Clarke Quay. Typical meal around SGD50.

Carnivore Brazilian Churrascaria
30 Victoria St #01-29A
Brazilian churrascaria restaurant, where waiters walk around with skewers of South American beef and eat all you want!. Definitely not the place for vegetarians though does have an extensive salad bar. Lunch around SGD35 and dinner around SGD50.
