How we do it

Tatler Dining Singapore - - Dining -


Each restau­rant has been rated in four key ar­eas— set­ting, food, wine and ser­vice—to pro­vide a quick and easy ref­er­ence. Each restau­rant was re­viewed anony­mously dur­ing the com­pi­la­tion of this guide. The fi­nal rat­ings are a re­sult of the re­view­ers’ re­ports, plus the gen­eral rec­om­men­da­tions of our ex­pert ed­i­to­rial panel.

The restau­rant’s rat­ings are dis­played through the use of easy-to-read sym­bols. Set­ting, food, wine and ser­vice are each rated on a scale of 1 to 10.

And it is with these rat­ings that we ar­rive at the awards—hall of Fame (a min­i­mum 9 points for food this year plus 32 points or more in to­tal for set­ting, food, wine and ser­vice for four con­sec­u­tive years), Best Ser­vice

(a min­i­mum of 9 points for ser­vice this year),

Best New Restau­rant (in op­er­a­tion for 12 months or less with a min­i­mum 8 points for food and 32 points or more in to­tal for set­ting, food, wine and ser­vice),

Best In­te­rior De­sign (a min­i­mum of 9 points for set­ting), as well as Lo­cal Cham­pion and Top 20 Restau­rants, as voted by our ex­pert pan­elists.


Each restau­rant has spec­i­fied the type of cui­sine it serves and most have nom­i­nated a few spe­cial­i­ties of the house. These dishes (you can read on sin­ga­pore­tatler­ are nor­mally served daily, although their avail­abil­ity may be sub­ject to pe­ri­odic menu changes and sea­sonal vari­a­tions.


The price listed is the av­er­age cost of a three- or four-course meal per per­son. It ex­cludes wine and other bev­er­ages, as well as ser­vice charge and GST.


Many restau­rants have a se­lec­tion of veg­e­tar­ian dishes on their main menus. The num­ber of veg­e­tar­ian dishes of­fered at each restau­rant is listed. These cre­ations can be pre­pared upon re­quest. Do let the restau­rants know when mak­ing your reser­va­tion.


The num­ber of pri­vate rooms are in­di­cated for each restau­rant. It’s rec­om­mended to book these rooms in ad­vance.


For BYO, the corkage fee range is stated for wines, cham­pagnes and liquors.
