Dishes were under 10£ and very tasty. They were happy to do the small changes we asked (sweet &sour chicken instead of pork) The signature Singapore soup was awesome. Would go again if I'm around the neighbourhood. David 02-NOV-2016

As a Malaysian Chinese girl who has lived in Singapore too, I cannot recommend enough this restaurant or even for takeaway. It's real, authentic Singapore and Malaysia fare that reminds me of being home, the laksa, hainiese chicken rice, nasi lemak etc is out of this world. Really incredible. Portions are generous, service is homely yet professional and I wish... More

The restaurant is family run and they pay personal attention. The food is Singaporean and the best meals are made of vegetarian 'meat.' The vegetarian lamb curry is excellent. They have a great house wine.

We love Singapore Orchid for dine-in and take-away. The rendang was delicious - very tender meat and such an authentic taste. Ananda is a very talented chef and a wonderful host. If you can, eat in the restaurant rather than take-away as we were there on a Saturday night and it was very quiet.

After reading good reviews about the food at the Singapore Orchid we decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed! The food was so good! Fantastic flavours and everything was cooked to perfection. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food is a very good price. What does let the place down a bit is the decor,... More

I have lived in Singapore for 15 years, so know about Singapore food. The food in this restaurant is really like it is in Singapore, the veg dish was excellent and the chicken rice was perfect. The service is very pleasant, atmosphere nice, prices reasonable. We will definitely return

There are a lot of healthy choices from the menu and staff are friendly. As of the moment, parking is an issue.
