Fullerton Hotel, Singapore
Tel: +65 6877 8188
Chinese restaurants in Singapore have always suffered a deficit in public image. It used to be that you couldn’t get a young person to step into one outside of a family wedding or their grandparents’ birthday dinner. Thankfully, the scene has received a boost with trendier debutants like Paradise Dynasty and Jing entering the market.
Add Jade to the list. Fullerton’s Chinese banner-bearer serves up attractive Oriental food in the spacious confines of the hotel’s high-ceilinged ground floor annexes. We wouldn’t go so far as to call the menu ‘fusion’, but might venture to say that it is classic Hong Kong and Shanghai cuisine updated to suit a younger palate.
If uninitiated in the complexities of the Chinese a la carte menu, or so as to avoid an inexplicable seafood bomb in your final bill, there is an extensive selection of prix-fixe sets available, from $58++ to $288++. Increments on the lower end are very considerate to diners on a budget ($58, $68, $78, $88++), so one can hardly complain of a lack of options to choose from.
As a Chinese restaurant, Jade really is the whole package. A spacious dining room, no lack of elbow space and confidently prepared food all made for a lovely night out.
