Impressive are. Trying something to eat without reservation on a Friday. Really difficult, but we found a good Japanese. Really nice surroundings.

It is one of the heritage places in Singapore commercialized for monetary value. Good to have meals and drinks and can watch footballs matches in crowded bars.

I find it a little odd to turn a historic area into restaurants and bars, but maybe that's just me. Either way, there's lots of options for eating and drinking in a very cool and unique setting. It's worth walking through to see even if you don't ultimately eat here.

Chijmes has a unique atmosphere especially since its right in the middle of Singapore. Its a bit of haven away from he noise of the city given its 1 level below. There are dozens of restaurants here to choose from as well as bars so there is going to be something that you will like.

This historic building complex began life as a convent so the architecture is a nice change from the ultra modern Singapore. Their are numerous restaurants and bars to choose from. Some of the restaurants we have found particularly good are Lei Garden (Chinese Food), Bobby's has excellent burgers and beer an IndoChine offers nice Vietnamese style dishes.

There are number of restaurants at Chijmes and each offers unique dishes of choice. Live band is played and prices would be slightly higher. However, the choices you have in food and the quality of them will amaze you.

This convent dating back to 1841 has housed restaurants, clubs and shops since 1983. It is a place that is both pleasant and picturesque where one can relax and refresh. The convent itself is an attractive piece of architecture that I recommend one visits whilst in Singapore.

Nice ambience and service was pretty good. From the menu items offered we were excited - sort of a Thai-Khmer-Lao fusion with some twists. For tapas we had Goi Cuon and smoked sausages, which were pretty good. The Aussie beef salad (paid extra for the prime beef) was lacking except for the beef which was very tender and tasty. I...
