Tips

  • Omg the buah keluk ice cream to die for.
  • The cendol!!!
  • Omg. The breast duck pork n beef all super nice.. Worth it. Come and try for once.
  • Sambal petai prawns is a dish worth trying. BUT be warned that the sambal is truly HOT!!! And the prawns are fresh and crispy. Must try.
  • Free flow rice and water!! Spiciness level: medium - high... A bit pricey. Mushroom goreng salad is a must try, followed by spicy stir-fried squid. Don't: do not try "The Textures of Coconut" at $9.
  • Had 5 dishes in all, and they were all really delicious! the beef rendang was utterly "melt in mouth", sambal mushroom was interesting and the wing bean salad was surprisingly crunchy and tasty.
  • Note that the serving size here is smaller than normal. Immediately ask for more sambal, they only give a dollop. Try the Babi Pongteh, Fish Gulai, and Rendang.
  • Lovely peranakan place you can bring not too adventurous visitors to love the peranakan aesthetics and taste. The old and wise guides you in life (and menus). Star shaped bean salad was refreshing!
  • Has delish crab curry, king prawns and many other dishes. Note that this place is a Michelin star restaurant. Food here is pricey.
  • He ah-me-kase is definitely worth it! Very filling and a wonderful sampling of 10 dishes. For dessert, the durian one is great:)
  • Well balanced, tasty food that balances flavor, presentation, texture, tradition and originality. 2nd visit and pleased both times. Definitely will be back.
  • The crab curry was fabulous. Deffo worth the Michelin star status. Portions are a little small but worth the experience
  • Elevated Peranakan food which is mix of Chinese & Malay. Desserts are yum. Nice spacious ambience. 1 Michelin star.
  • Assam fish, rendang, veg w tau Cheo (fermented bean paste) were gd. Nice ambience in what was a former army barrack. Gula Melaka ice cream was delish. Strong coffee too!
  • Excellent service, unfortunately it was way below my expectations. The food was good, but it wasn't great. We went for the full special menu and I had 2 awesome dishes, the rest pretty average :(.
  • Really good Peranakan Food
  • Love it!! Birthday celebration dinner in this lovely environment. I am happy with the service and food.
  • Candlenut Kitchen was awarded a Michelin Star in The Michelin Guide Singapore 2016.
  • Peranakan cuisine, one of Singapore's oldest fusion cuisines combining Chinese & Malay influences, is recognised as a category by Michelin for the very first time.
