23 Wedding Restaurants To Tie The Knot In Singapore Other Than Hotel Ballrooms


Through the years, it has been a tradition to hold big events, such as a wedding, in hotel ballrooms to accommodate more design, food, and guests. A lot of people believe that the bigger and grand the venue, the better. However, because times are changing the trends have also followed suit. Some would only choose to hold smaller and a more intimate wedding dinner not only to save money but to also make it more special. Hotel ballroom is commonly reserved for the more traditional ones. But it is completely up to you, the bride and groom if you choose to shy away from the usual and add flavor to your wedding day.




How will I choose between a hotel ballroom or a restaurant for the wedding reception?

In choosing whether to hold your ceremony in a hotel ballroom or restaurant, a lot of factors are needed to be considered. First of course would be your guest list. Do you intend to invite 50, 100, 200, or more people? How about the seating arrangements, are there guests that should not be in the same table? Second, will be the overall design. Will you add a lot of flowers? Do you want the spacing of the tables to be a far apart? Third consideration will be the logistics. If you will hold the ceremony at a different place, how far will the reception be? Will your guests be able to go there? Lastly, consider also the budget that you have prepared. How much are you willing to spend? Although some restaurants will cost the same, if not a lot, if you compare it with hotel ballrooms. Conversely, there are some that offer a lot less cheaper stuff but with high quality.

Ah Yat Seafood Restaurant

Did you find yourself craving Chinese cuisine? Well, here is the perfect restaurant for you! With 3 branches across Singapore, you'll surely get the best taste of Chinese cuisine that will leave you wanting more.


Customer Reviews:


One of the better Chinese restaurant

A very nostalgic Chinese restaurant in Singapore. This is the Chinese restaurant that I will go to whenever the family is craving good Chinese cuisine.

I have visited the restaurant many times in the past, be it lunches or dinners, it has never disappointed us. The restaurant offers fresh seafood and patrons can actually choose their catch at the water tanks located outside the restaurant and choose they want them to be cooked. Their cooking style is more Hong Kong and it’s a must-visit if this is what you are looking for. They have dim sum as well which I find them pretty good as well. -Your_Travel_Buddy_SG

Healthy Chinese food

The restaurant is strong in introducing Chinese herbs into the dishes. Enjoy the soups in the restaurant. Loved the duck cooked with Hawthorne and pear. The duck meat can literally be torn from the bones. One of the favourites is the egg white with scallop. Realized there is a menu which is for smaller eating group. Good to have it as sometimes we have few people. Prices also lower for the smaller dishes menu. Enjoyed the desserts as they are refreshing in taste and beneficial to health. -PCSim

Always a remarkable place to dine!

An exceptional wine dinner with Rhone Valley wines. We started with a lovely white Vacqueyras which was refreshing and crisp. Then we had a lovely Vichyssoise soup paired with another white Condrieu. The starter grilled oven trout was excellent, unusually paired with red Côté Rôtie. The outstanding slow braised veal shin with Chateauneuf du Pape was the star of the evening. Then the Emmental cheese with the white Hermitage was also good. Overall a wonderful gastronomic experience! -EpicureanWay

Elegant quiet fine dining

Elegant interior, warm welcoming attentive service and awesome food. I chanced upon this restaurant while googling for best Italian restaurant in Sg. A wonderful find. Starter was very special, the cold cheese and caramelised onion. Mushroom soup was pipping hot and truffle oil simply aromatic. Beef melts in your mouth while the octopus was prepared so uniquely, outer crust crispy while inside tender (must try for yourself to understand the uniqueness). Dessert was ok, maybe overshadowed by the others. Thanks to Andy and Rajoo for great service - attentive but not intrusive. And they change cutlery with each course so that flavours don’t mix, I love this little details. Highly recommended. -Yeehuangelaines

Best Latin food and service in years!

Great food, and indeed the best view in Singapore. Try the large plates, the grilled meats, the chicken, and the accompaniments. Come with family or friends, and enjoy either the view or the ambience inside.

Yet what stands out is the service: from reception to seating and attentiveness. Big shout out to David who helped us select from their extensive grill menu. Don’t see that attention to customer service much these days.

We'll be back for more. -csiem
