It was a miserable rainy evening when we sat down to dinner at Ci Tan. The man and woman duo who run this restaurant have been doing so for 20 years and you can see why. While the menu is small, all items are delicious,...More

The owner has a menu but directs everyone to his specials on the chalkboard. When asking he keeps pushing for No 1 on the board so I ordered that. My husband wanted something different but he insisted No 1 was best so we ordered it....More

This restaurant used to be a pretty good deal. You always have limited option (2-3 choices), and the food is pre-prepared and comes out pretty fast, but tastes delicious. In the last few months the prices have gone up a lot proportionally. At the beginning...More

The food here is home cooking standard dishes. The owner focuses on quality and healthy dishes. Not many dishes to choose from but good food overall. Portions just right but for big guys may need to order more.

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.

We read about this restaurant in the official guide to Chinatown published by the Singapore Tourism Board, and we were lucky enough to find it on a recent visit to Chinatown. It's a small restaurant run by a husband and wife that serves a set menu of organic, vegetarian Chinese food. The menu changes each day, and during our lunch there were 3 choices: a vegetarian wrap, brown rice set, or a delicious tofu/noodle dish. The owner was very welcoming, spoke English, and suggested a meal for us since it was our first visit. The prices were very reasonable, and it had a nice, quiet atmosphere with pictures of the Dalai Lama and Buddhist statues on the walls. The restaurant has already been reviewed on Hungry Go Where, a food review site for Singapore: http://www.hungrygowhere.com/singapore/ci_yan_organic_vegetarian_health_food/
