Best Restaurants in Singapore

Restaurants have come a long way in the last couple of years in Singapore. Previously they were mostly carbon copies of restaurants in Europe and North America run by celebrity chefs. But a new wave of smaller players are making a mark in Singaporean with unique places that have character and originality. There are also still very good traditional Chinese places that are worth visiting. Our Singapore Restaurant Guide has everything from the latest trendy spots to old school open air chilli crab restaurants.
