Southern Asia comes together in Singapore, and whether your tastes are for Chinese cuisine, Japanese sushi, Korean BBQ, Vietnamese noodle soups, Indian curries, Thai delicacies or the local Nyonya Peranakan specialities, you can always find something to suit your palate in the city state. You can even go one further: in the heart of the Chinatown, close to Telok Ayer Market and Raffles Place, you can find them all at Ding Dong, where pan-Asian fusion cuisine is the order of the day. That takes the form of fresh seafood and meat dishes, vegetarian options and a huge cocktail menu to keep the whole party happy: so book a table today and head on down to Amoy Street and Ding Dong.
For parties of 7 and more, please contact Ding Dong directly.
The realm of Asian cuisine is a large one, and it takes a very confident person to try and take them all on. At Ding Dong on Amoy Street in the centre of Chinatown, they have such a figure in the form of Jet Lo – no relation to the high-kicking hero Jet Li, though they are both Singapore citizens – who has crafted a menu that encapsulates all the many flavours of Asia, from Indian and Thai curries to Vietnamese and Chinese-style noodles dishes, as well as plenty of fresh fish and seafood to boot. Let us talk you through a few of the specialities that you can find on the menu at Ding Dong in Chinatown.
Start your meal on Amoy Street in a suitably Chinatown manner, with a few small plates of Cantonese classics: Ding Dong blue lobster bao with hoisin sauce is a local favourite. Follow it up with a larger dish of Thai-style Tom Kha crispy quail, Japanese Wagyu char siew, Malaysian beef cheek rendang, cooked for 48 hours straight, or even the snapper sagg aloo with garam masala. Reserve yourself a table at Ding Dong, take a trip on the MRT to Chinatown, Raffles Place or Downtown stations and get ready for a superb Asian meal in Singapore.
We didn't know what to chose so we asked the waiter to recommend some dishes. We ordered what he recommended and we loved all the dishes!
The perfect kinda place to enjoy a good meal, chilling to happy retro music. Ding Dong was a fun place to dine, as they had set out to be. Quirky wallpaper decor, retro music; interesting food and bar drinks. We totally enjoyed the counter seats by the kitchen, admiring how the staff operated like clockwork in the confined space. And they were really good with the cooking while still enjoyed themselves. They had put some local Asian twists into their dishes. Tried a few other dishes and desserts and we were sure we would be back for more.
good atmosphere, good staff. Kindly asking for another drink when they find my glass is empty, good service. Dishes are nice, kind of Asian fusion cuisine. I liked the duck rillettes.
Great environment and service. Sharing portion are just nice for ladies. Lovely desserts with lychee sorbet to end the meal.
Corporate lunch meetup at Ding Dong. First time dining, food were excellent and tasty, interesting choice. We ordered the lunch set menu however portion were small. I would prefer to pay slightly extra to have a comfortable portion. Due it is corporate lunch meeting therefore we didnt order extra.
I visited the restaurant specifically to try the lobster tail in tomyum broth but it was unfortunately sold out so I had to settle for the pork collar char siew. The restaurant apparently only prepares a limited number of portions of the lobster tail so you probably have to go really early to get one. Portions are small for the price but meat was tender and tasty. My friend had the snapper in green curry which was delicious.
As always Ding Dong didnt fail to impress, the food was amazing! Their new location is nice and the ambiance is lively and keeps you engaged.
The place is so amazing that I am back again the very next week to dine here. Was greeted by another set of kitchen crew. This set of Crew... though not as "fun" as the previous one did a great job in preparing the food. Food was well prepared and we love the dishes we had tonight.
We had a great time in Ding Ding restaurant. Large panels of Asian dishes which you can eat at a table or in front of the bar. The atmosphere is quite relaxed with good music. The dishes are well served in surprising plates. Highly recommended to go there at least once.
Food is consistently good since they were at Ann Siang Hill. Service is great as well. I'm not so sure about the cocktails though - average in imagination and taste. They have a surprisingly good selection of wines. Overall always a positive dining experience in the few times i've been.
