The food is decently priced (except for the desserts, which were expensive) and the ambience was lovely. Service was exquisite. However, I just don't think it's worth queuing and making a booking months in advance.

Been ages since I've been to Buko Nero so decided to head there on a whim. Was such a good idea coz the food was delish and it still retains that cosy, intimate vibe. Will not wait long to visit again.

We chose this restaurant for my husbands birthday. Charming restaurant run by husband and wife, very relaxed atmosphere, small menu and absolutely delicious food and wine. Prices are high but good value when compared to similar restaurants. We had a wonderful evening and would recommend to friends.

Well thought-out Valentine's Day menu! Thanks to Oscar for adding a really flavourful ravioli dish on a busy night and to Tracy for the wonderfully warm service! Amazing to see the passion after all these years, truly fine dining at home!

After our recent debacle at Bedrock, we called Traci on a whim, not really expecting her to be able to accommodate us on such ridiculously short notice. Much to our jubilant surprise, we were able to be accommodated in their newly constructed counter area. All the main room tables were full, a clear testament to how truly wonderful this place...

This place was off our radar for several years for no apparent reason. Our revisit made us recall once again how good it was before and why it still remains as an excellent restaurant. Comfortable, cosy restaurant with excellent service and food and wines. Will return soon. An improvement with a more effective extraction of the cooking smells would help.... More

This is one of our favorite places in Singapore. No doubt. Since we were here last time, they have redecorated the place and it looks better. They are now able to serve more tables/plates but they may have stretched themselves by doing that. The place was packed on a Saturday night and the people were a little more stressed than... More

Had set menu. Homely place with great service. Felt like I've hired a skilful chef as my private cook. Very fresh ingredients with well executed food. Home made bread, ice cream are memorable. Been wanting to visit Buko Nero for 10years, but wasn't easy to nab a reservation at last minute. It didn't disappoint.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
