Singapore is a food lover's haven, where every meal is an adventure with a diverse range of dining options, from humble hawker centres to elegant Michelin-starred restaurants. To add to the excitement, many of these eateries curate their menus based on the freshest seasonal ingredients, allowing their chefs to showcase their innovative culinary skills.

Whether you're planning a corporate event, a celebration, or simply dining with a large group, several restaurants in Singapore provide private dining spaces or entire buyouts of their venue.

Here are six outstanding restaurants that deserve a spot on every delegate’s must-eat list.


For a taste of elevated Singaporean cuisine, check out Contemporary Straits restaurant Pangium which features a tasting menu inspired by the region’s cultural heritage. Its latest menu by chef Malcolm Lee incorporates dishes based on the food that Chinese Singaporean immigrants used to cook, such as pong tauhu soup with tofu dumplings stuffed with pork, lobster and abalone rice and spicy mee sua rice vermicelli with Hokkaido alaskan crab. The restaurant, located in the Gallop Extension of the Singapore Botanical Gardens, has a private room as well.


Savour contemporary Seoul cuisine at this one-star Michelin restaurant helmed by chef Louis Han, whose dishes are inspired by nostalgia for his native Korea blended with his global sensibilities. The latest Front Yard Barbecue menu, which is based on his fond memories of summer barbecues back in Korea, features elegant grilled dishes such as a perfectly marbled MS7 Wagyu tenderloin as well as his ever popular somyeon noodles with tender grilled pork belly.

The cozy 28-seater restaurant is available for buyouts but note that the restaurant requires ample advance notice as seats are often snapped up as soon as they are released.

Neon Pigeon

Buzzy modern Japanese restaurant Neon Pigeon welcomes a new head chef Sean David Mell whose focus are dishes with fresh and zingy flavours, indulgent comfort food and plenty of umami.

His first menu encompasses nostalgic dishes such as herb infused oil and vinegar cured iwashi fish with crispy noodles and “ceviche” crudo with mixed cuts of sashimi with ceviche dressing - his take on the freshest catch of the week. With trendy interiors and cuisine that is elevated, yet unfussy this is exactly the kind of destination restaurant that enlivens gatherings and sparks conversations.

Neon Pigeon is available for large group bookings, partial buyouts and full venue buyouts for both lunch and dinner.

Altro Zafferano

With sophisticated interiors in a soothing palette of rich neutral colours and a prime location in the central business district at Ocean Financial Center, Altro Zafferano is an ideal restaurant for business and corporate affairs. Led by executive chef Andrea De Paola, the menu features contemporary renditions of South Italian classics such as aged Acquerello risotto with zucchini, smoked eel and 20-year balsamico and silver cod with peperone crusco and mussels veloute.

The restaurant has a new private dining section that allows flexible configuration into one or two rooms and can accommodate up to 60 guests as well as a customisable four course menu.

Yue Bai

For an interesting take on Chinese cuisine, check out Yue Bai’s new spring menu which is led by the principles of Dietary Therapy with fresh ingredients such as chlorophyll rich greens to nourish the liver. It has lunch and dinner tasting menus with highlights including cod fillet with pickled choy sum and Chinese celery.

The restaurant has a private dining room which is decorated with a stunning contemporary Chinese ink painting by second generation Singaporean artist Goh Beng Kwan for guests to contemplate as they wine and dine.

Apolo’s Food Village

On days when a more casual affair is preferred for larger groups, visit the 350-seater Apolo’s Food Village. This newly launched 1,100 sqm space is particularly known for its extensive menu of over 600 dishes ranging from Indochinese, North and South Indian as well as East Asian food.

Many of the dishes are prepared using traditional cooking methods - for instance Indian food is cooked in clay pots to impart an authentic earthiness to the food. The restaurant also has themed sections, such as an Indian Mithal display of appetising desserts to whet the appetite. For buyout enquiries, contact the restaurant directly.
