Deciding on a place to celebrate an important occasion such as a birthday can be a challenge. We hope this list of ten of the best restaurants to celebrate birthday events in Singapore will be useful to our readers.
Restaurants to Celebrate Birthday Gatherings for the Family
For casual family gatherings to celebrate a birthday, we look for places which are nice and spacious, a menu that caters for the young and old and prices that are not too scary. Here are two cafes that come to mind.
PS. Cafe One Fullerton
PS Cafe needs no introduction. The PS Cafe outlet at One Fullerton is located in the building by the sea next to the Merlion. We think that it is the best PS Cafe outlet to hold a smart casual party for the family. The decor is beautiful, the menu should appeal to all ages and there are enough choices of cake to please the birthday boy / girl. Read more.

Bodacious Bar & Bistro in Biopolis near the Buona Vista MRT station is a laid back place to hold a birthday party outside the CBD where the traffic and parking charges are lighter. They are closed on Sunday so the best day to hold an event here is on a Saturday when the hordes of office people are no longer around. Read more.

Traditional Chinese Birthday Dinner
There are many suitable Chinese restaurants to celebrate birthdays in Singapore. Here are two medium sized Teochew restaurants which are quite cozy but large enough to accommodate a reasonably large group.
Paradise Teochew Restaurant Scotts Square
Teochew food can impress by its simplicity but you can also have an elaborate feast on Teochew delights. Paradise Teochew Restaurant Scotts Square is a tastefully appointed restaurant that will serve you dainty Teochew dumplings and simple pomfret congee as well as lavish Teochew style roasted suckling pig and chilled yellow roe crab. Read our post: Dinner Feast at Paradise Teochew Restaurant Scotts Square.
Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine 醉宇轩经典潮膳 is a relatively new restaurant by the Jumbo Group. It opened in 2019 at a beautiful two-storey heritage building located in Far East Square. For me, the building is reason enough to hold a traditional Chinese birthday celebration here. Read more.

Formal Western Birthday Celebration
For those who prefer more formal western-style restaurants to celebrate a birthday, here are a couple of suggestions.
Lawry’s Singapore is a name that comes to mind when we think of roasted prime rib of beef in Singapore. Other reasons for celebrating here are their birthday promotion and their friendly servers who are experienced Happy Birthday singers. Read our posts: Birthday celebration lunch at Lawry’s Singapore.
