JAAN Restaurant – a Top Restaurant in so many ways

JAAN 5 course menu

JAAN is a modern French restaurant in Singapore that is a top restaurant in so many ways. Perched on Level 70 of the hotel tower at Raffles City, JAAN Restaurant’s lofty heights and expansive windows mean that it is one of the best restaurants with breath-taking views over Singapore. Its position as one of the top restaurants in Singapore is reinforced by the 1 Star awarded by Singapore Michelin Guide 2016, its inclusion in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 and its appointment as Krug’s First Restaurant Ambassade in Singapore. JAAN’s menu is a creation of a top chef – Kirk Westaway, winner of the S. Pellegrino Young Chef 2015 for Southeast Asia. The interesting set menus of JAAN Restaurant have received much praise. Having had lunch there recently, we must say that we had a top notch experience and JAAN is now one of The Ordinary Patrons’ (TOP) favourite restaurants in Singapore.

Which is a good thing both for comfort and for environmental reasons as the place had been well furnished with cushy chairs and nice furniture.  Attracted by the enticing weekday set lunch menu, we decided to try out this new Thai restaurant in Alexandra Central mall.
