The Island Cafe is exactly that. And Island of calm on Orchard Road. Soothing decor, great service and lovely food. There's a good mix of Western and Asian food. I chose the Mediterranean salad and carrot and ginger juice. Both awesome.

Oh gosh, ain't it all slick now with a nice sliver of a view of Orchard Road surrounds. The perfect lunch spot to rest and catch up from the hustle and bustle before you re-enter urbane civilization. The good stuff is all there still albeit a tad more expensive. I went for the crab tang hoon (my fave for a... More

The island cafe has been a longtime favorite for my family & this year they underwent renovations to remodel the cafe. The menu has changed slightly as well and has become more westernized instead of a localized menu. That being said the food is still delicious & come in large portions- the chicken rice is a must try!

Now I would not have step into here knowing that they charge exorbitant prices for hawker food It's a nice place for a good conversation with friends but not for meals please Overall food is moderate and service is mediocre at its best For that kind of prices , we could be better off with much fancier cafe around orchard

Food wise i think is decent, a cosy place to meet up with friends over food. Friendly waiters and service is quite prompt. They had a peanut butter milkshake just like the one i had in sydney.. Though a tad to sweet nonetheless enjoyed it very much.

Good cafe food but on the pricier side! Recommend to order asian dishes like the the laksa, char kway teow. Definitely a place to go if you like to shop and eat as it's on the top floor or Tangs Plaza and if you like to have more refined hawker centre eats. Would not advise having burgers here nor the...

Located on the upper floor of the department store, I was thankful it was not very busy. The restaurant team member who showed me to my seat indulged me with my choice of table. The décor was slick and the overall ambience was clinical. I especially liked the light piece above the cashier's. I was a little disappointed that my... More

As you walk into the cafe, wow it was so bright & well decorated with new furnishings. Ordered fried kuay teow, chicken rice & prawn noodles. The freshly slow squeezed juices were good. Fried noodles very oily, prawn noodles had tiny prawns & chicken rice was too wet.

Staying in Orchard Road

Neighbourhood Profile
Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why. This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
