Excellent but somewhat lacking in veggie options. Chicken and seafood items are exceptional and so is service.
We really enjoyed our visit. The degustation was excellent. A range of food and not too much. Accompanied by a good wine. Service was excellent. All round great experience
Both the first and second dessert were amazing! Some of the main courses were too spicy for me though. Favourite main dish woild be the beer battered soft shelled prawn!
The food was underwhelming, in general it lacked a depth and balance of flavour. The menu was so promising but the dishes didn’t deliver on this.
excellent food, excellent service! my new fave resto in singapore! interiors are chic, ambiance is vibrant and exciting:) would def go back again and again
We went to Candlenut for our first anniversary while in Singapore. The food and service were both impeccable. The modern take on Peranakan cuisine is not to be missed and the overall value is terrific. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!
Ambience was great, venue was relatively quiet, probably because it was during weekday lunch. Portions for the starters (kweh pie ti) and mains are relatively small. Staff did highlight to us while ordering.
Wow on the Beef Rendang!! Wing bean salad perfect match for the curry and staff very professional without being routine.
The staff was friendly, provided us with suggestions on dishes to try
Candlenut is quality, amazing peranakan cuisine. The minimal and simple looks can be decieving; it is a testament to Candlenut's mastery of its' craft. Can't stress enough on how each dish is so well thought of and crafted. The right amount of flavours and the chosen textures for each dish pairs together to create a remarkable experience.
The service was top notch. Floor staff were very thoughtful, full of initiative. One step ahead of us all the time. They made our visit that much more pleasurable.
Great dining experience and fantastic wait staff. Recommend tasting menu
Great restaurant. With their extraordinary food and Theo marvelous service they succeeded to make a vegetarian friend love their seafood dishes!
Awesome peranakan experience! The food was great, and the service on the top!
Really fantastic food and service. Most relaxed Michelin starred restaurant I have been to with lovely room and atmosphere.
The food was tasty, but all the food was too salty
Serves good food that appeals to my roots.....despite being a bit more modern than what I typically like. Great place for business lunch/dinner. Portions are well controlled.
Lovely place and food
Portion sizes really small
Not good value even by Singapore standards
As a fan of Peranakan cuisine, I was blown away by the tasting menu. Gastronomic.
From our greeting at the door by a senior waiter, until we were farewelled after a resplendent meal, our experience at Candlenut was exemplary.
Really disappointing. The prawn dish came with 2 disastrously over cooked prawns for about $28. The blackened chicken dish had no flavour. The crab curry was lovely but measly portion size.
Phenomenal flavours served by enthusiastic team - don’t miss this place when in Singapore
Disappointing considering the price, average curry, red snapper over seasoned
Most dishes were just okay. Worse is the brown rice, came not warm or even like cold. Not returning.
This was a great introduction to this type of food . Every dish was tasty and well presented. Great flavors without having the sauces or spices overwhelm the dish. Quiet with great service. Well worth the short drive from downtown.
an amazing taste of perankan food, super friendly staff, good price. entrees and desserts were the best. lovely chef that came and met us after our meal. Banger! would go back again and again and
maybe bring a jacket next time, it was pretty chilli inside 😁
Great food, service was nice and attentive. Will definitely go again when back to Singapore !
It was a ‘long waited’ lunch (since few years ago) these are the food that I can die for!
The dishes were so tasty we had to hold back having extra serving of rice. My favorite is Ngor Hiang. So is Beef Rendang, and Chup Chye, and Baby Squid. Bak Hwan Soup is also fantastic (all slurp up before picture could be taken). Blurp!
We were given a table near to the private room. The private room was noisy with the kids crying and running about. The waitress could have asked the guests to close the door and inform the parents to take care of their children.
The serving of the food was small and the taste was blend. Not worth the price that they have charged. Didn't enjoy our lunch at all and would not recommend this restaurant.
Really good food and ambiance was memorable. Worth the visit especially for foreign vistors like us. Will definitely go back.
Nice place but way too cold as the aircon is blowing at maximum speed which the restaurant can’t control apparently.
No possibility of dining on the terrasse
Food was a hundred times better when candlenut was still at the dorsett. The ambience is lovely though and it's the sort of place you could take your foreign guests if you aren't particular about food quality or prices. We had the tasting menu but overpriced for essentially mediocre local curries. Will not return if I had to foot the bill .
Standarad and quality of food has gone down from previous visit. This is supposed to be Michelin star restaurants, yet we had to fiill up our own keuh piet tie, the service staff didnt want to help us cut a birthday case because it was not ordered from the restaurant.
The place itself is lovely but from the moment we entered until the moment we left we felt extremely cold. Both my wife and I were wearing long sleeves but it really wasn't sufficient. We also saw that there were many ladies who were suffering and they had to ask for a shawl. We were happy when we left to appreciate some warmth. I understand that you must use air conditioning in Singapore but the level should be controlled.
Our starter arrived immediately and we had not even finished when our mains arrived. Very quickly infact maybe too quickly. This makes me think that the food is pre cooked. During our mains we ordered more wok vegetables and they too arrived immediately. If this is the case I do not expect this from a Michelin Star restaurant.
People want to relax when they go out for dinner and take their time and chat to their friends etc so I cannot understand. Anyway it did not matter because we were so cold that we were happy to leave early.
The food in general was good and the service was fine but I am afraid that I will not be returning to the Candlenut.
It was great to be able to combine a set dinner meal with some a la cart dishes. However I was quite disappointed In the way the cod fish was prepared with too much fermented soya beans wrapped round it.
However, Sevi your waiter saved the day by saying that was how the cod was supposed to be done.
Loved Candlenut! Food was incredible, service impeccable, decor exquisite, had a really cool vibe about it, every detail of the dining experience has been considered.
An amazing meal. I had the Ah-am-kase tasting menu, whilst my friend who avoids eating shellfish went for the à la Carter option. Every mouthful of both meals was stunning, from the fish crackers to begin, through to the popping candy chocolate dessert! Felix, our waiter, was a delight, and we would absolutely recommend to friends - it’s worth what you pay!
The food was great, but it was waaaaayyyy to noisy.
My guest has a hearing aid, and we came very close to leaving before ordering, because he couldn't hear the conversation.
and you 'noise level' rating in the first question is idiotic: quiet, moderate, energetic. It was none of those. it was irritatingly noisy.
My first time to visit Candlenut for dinner. The location is little bit out of CBD area. However, the restaurant's surrounding area is very delightful and comfortable for inviting friends or couple dating. Staff who serve us is very friendly and helpful to recommend good food to us. Food portion is little bit small but good enough for lady diners. Food is a kind of fusion of Malaysian and Peranakan cuisine - suitable for all ages and gender to taste. Highly recommend to those who have never tasted Peranakan cuisine.
