The aged duck is too tough and not able to cut with the knife. The uni does not have the full flavor, feel the cabbage base and the sauce kind of too salty. My favor one is the beef Gimbap and the Corn.

The service was excellent and the food is surprising interpretation of Korean cuisine. I wish it was less noisy but I suppose it was part of the ambience of a Korean restaurant.

Meta never disappoint. Absolutely fantastic meal from snack till dessert, via many delicious plates. White powder kimchi on top of the extra noodles was great. A more delicate touch of the staff in phone and staff on arrival would be an improvement.

If you are not a fan of Korean foods, META will change your mind and make you falling in love with Korean cuisine through its innovative fusion approach of preparing and serving the dishes. The lunch tasting menu was rated as the most memorable for...all my guests with whom I have been dining at various Michelin restaurants that week. I would like to specially thank Sharon, Kat and Mr sommelier who provided us with excellent services during our visit.More

It was my first stop after arriving at Singapore, don’t regret it. Food is perfect and employees and managers made us feel so welcome and it was my pleasure having my first meal in Singapore. Wine pairing was also perfect!

I went to Meta to celebrate my wife’s birthday. It was our first time trying Korean version of fine dining, and we enjoyed it. The infusion of western and Korean way of cooking give an interesting blend of favour. Tried the half Korean wine pairing...and got to know more about how different rice wine were made. It was also interesting to have several deserts to end the day. Definitely worth a second visit.More

A korean influenced restaurant with a michelin star plus place in the world’s top 100 restaurants (only 4 singapore restaurants) The food is very good to great - korean and japanese influences, mixed with western techniques. The dessert of black sesame and ginseng sublime. A...slight letdown in the main course with chewy wagyu The service is spotty: - a week prior informed them that my partner does not eat dessert, any substitute. The reply was about pre-dessert so doesn’t answer the question - when we arrived, the same topic came up. She just said “cool” and left! So what was my partner eating in place of dessert ? - we asked the server if there was bread served. He didn’t know and had to ask others. Hmm - they had a misprint on the menu for pre-dessert. It was “melon”, but printed “corn” 9/10 and barelyMore

I was very fortunate to get a table despite being on the waitlist. Impressed by the flawless execution, every single dish was an eye-opener. Was happy to have the half pairing option as well. Wine pairing was excellent, love the Chassagne Montrachet being paired with...the seafood, brilliant match!More

I visited Meta way back when they did not have their Star. FF years later, their food has improved. Flavours are distinctly refined Korean and Japanese. Clean, precise and discreet taste and texture. Sommelier was very friendly. Generally staff were ok. Despite informing them it...was a very special occasion and it would be nice to see Chef Sun, he did not oblige in walking a few steps to our table despite it not being so busy. I didn't feel uncomfortable but I didn't feel totally relaxed like I do in Odette where Julien, chefs and Steven even grab a chair to chat to us! A bit of a let down for the total experience. A little humility and hospitality doesn't hurt, does it ?More

Very noisy ambience. Unprofessional senior waiters who all leaned on tables when talking to guests. Totally overpriced for this kind of food quality.
