Great Value Meals in Singapore

Great Value Meals in Singapore

While Singapore may be one of the most expensive cities in the world, it is still not difficult to find good food at very fair prices. At the beginning of this new year, we look back at restaurants where we have enjoyed great value meals and look forward to more such great eats in 2016.

Great value will, of course, mean different things to different people. We think we get great value when we feel that the quality and quantity of the food and the service we get are well worth the price of the meal. Here is The Ordinary Patrons’ list of restaurants with great value meals in Singapore.

Dallas @ Suntec City

Great Value Meal at Dallas Restaurant

Dallas Restaurant & Bar @ Suntec City
3 Temasek Boulevard
03-302/303 Suntec City Sky Garden
Singapore 038983

Dallas Restaurant & Bar is housed in a glass cube on Suntec City  Sky Garden. A $28++ two-course lunch with coffee or tea included in a lovely space is a great value for money proposition.

Milagro @ Orchard Central

Great Value meal at Milagro Spanish Restaurant

Milagro Spanish Restaurant
#08-06/07, Orchard Central
181 Orchard Road
Singapore 238896

Spanish restaurant with a quite wonderful $19.90 (nett) two-course set lunch – with no extra charges for GST, service or water. The food at Milagro can rival those at more fancy ‘high-end’ Spanish restaurants.

Osteria Art Italian Restaurant

Osteria Art
55 Market Street

The Power Lunch, a 3 course menu of daily specials, comprising a starter, top quality main course, a slice of cake and coffee is priced at $35++. Sleek elegant decor, comfortable environment, friendly attentive service, appealing food presentation plus good food add up to a very good deal.

Claymore Connect Mon Bijou

Mon Bijou
Claymore Connect
442 Orchard Road #01-19/20

FYR Cycene Ond Drinc @ Boon Tat

FYR Cycene ond Drinc Restaurant

FYR Cycene Ond Drinc
19 Boon Tat Street
Singapore 069619

At FYR Cycene Ond Drinc, the prices are not really cheap but we still feel we get good value because of the good quality of the food. Eating a  delicious whole Maine lobster ($35++) and spiced deboned red snapper ($25++) can satisfy the palate without hurting the wallet too much.

Chat & Chow @ MacPherson

ibis Styles Singapore on MacPherson

Chat & Chow
Level 4, ibis Styles Singapore
401 MacPherson Road
Singapore 368215

A lunch in a restaurant by the pool of a stylish hotel, where cabanas and sun loungers dot a nicely landscaped poolside, at only $12. It is probably the most affordable poolside dining in Singapore.

Marché @ Jurong East

Top value meal at Marche Movenpick

Marché Mövenpick @ Jem
50 Jurong Gateway Road,
#01-03, Jem®
Singapore 608549

Marché Movenpick @ Jem Shopping mall offers very affordable $9.90 lunches which are generally not bad; but on the days that ribeye is on the lunch menu, it may be the best deal you can currently find in Jurong East, if not the whole Singapore.

 Hanamidori @ Dhoby Ghaut

Great Value Meal at Hanamidori Singapore

Hanamidori Singapore
#04-01 Plaza Singapura
68 Orchard Road
Singapore 238839

Hanamidori’s $26.90++ per person full course Mizutaki hotpot meal is probably one of the best value for money meals you can find in Singapore. The food for two pax can actually be adequate for three people – further reducing the cost to $18 per person!

The Lokal @ Neil Road

The Lokal Singapore

The Lokal
136 Neil Road
Singapore 088865

Good portions of delicious food beautifully presented in a trendy cafe – even if the prices are not very low, it is a great value meal because eating at The Lokal is what hip experiential dining is all about.

We regret to inform you that all the hype about The Lokal restaurant is true.


Shiraishi @ Marina South

Shiraishi Japanese Restaurant Great Value

Shiraishi Japanese Restaurant
Ritz Carlton Hotel
7 Raffles Avenue
Singapore 039799

Shiraishi serves top flight Japanese food and items on their ala carte menu are rather pricey. However, their more affordable lunch sets ranging from $30++ for the tempura set to about $70++ for a bento offer great value, considering the quality of the food and its luxurious location.

#11-00 Pico Creative Centre
