Restaurant Ember has quite a good reputation but a lunch there recently seemed to point up the worst aspects of nouvelle cuisine.It's quite good to have smallish portions at lunch-time but there are limits. The angel hair Pasta starter was small and tasteless. The main course of venison was a tiny piece of quite tasty meat served with very hard... More

This place has survived the fickle Singapore dining scene which in itself is a notable feat! While a bit on the salty side, each dish was beautifully presented and really delicious. We had the set dinner and really enjoyed the palate cleansers too. Lovely all in all! We will be back

The Ember is the 1929 Hotel's restaurant which offers a great breakfast and lunch specials which look excellent. Highly recommended

Adore. Divine. I have no more superlatives. Superb food and great service. A chill lunch place with a expertly-culled set lunch menu. Off street parking was a breeze at lunch - why is 1929's in-house restaurant not more packed? Went to town with the foie gras (simply delectable), ebi pasta, chicken (perfectly baked) and a selection of deserts. My companion... More

One of the better restaurant that I have been to. Lunch is especially worth it. Probably would not be great as a romantic dinner location as there are a lot of echo from the glass panels.

Popped in here today for a quick lunch. I had the venison which, whilst well presented and generally tasty, was a bit too chewy for my liking. Not sure I'll rush back here.

ember used to be great value for a lunch escapade. however new menu meant that it no longer offers value for money as a set lunch. food seems to be disappointing with a new chef helming it. reckon they have lost many of us regular diners.

We very much enjoyed our meal here. The ambience was quiet and comfortable and there were sufficient people eating there even on a Tuesday evening to make us feel good about being there. The unusually warm foie gras with Asian five spices was a melt in the mouth experience, the venison was perfectly medium rare and the lemongrass and lime... More

Ember was the best dining experience I had on my short vacation in Singapore. It compares favourably to good restaurants in Australia. We had dined at several Michelin hatted restaurants in Europe on the first leg of our vacation and were finding most Singaporean offers to be sub-standard lukewarm bain-marie smorgasbord fare. (Buffet appears to pass for good dining in... More

We have been faithful patrons of this restaurant since we were introduced to it by a friend. This was when Ember was managed by its original owner/chef. Food and service were good. We have even brought friends there and they in turn introduced others to the place. There was then a change of management or owner, hence, the chef changed... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
