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.
Amazing food, had the best place in the restaurant! Was able to see the chef, sous-chef and kitchen make their wonders!!! Thank you so much for making last night so special.
Delicious food and good ambience, but expect a 20-25 min for food to arrive. Food portion is not large even for bigger bowls. Service crew displayed good service, even the head chef. Will return again in future.
Love this place - have been here 4 times. Great food, ambiance and staff. Especially love sitting up by the bar / open kitchen to see the food being made.
Have visited a few times and the food and cocktails have been very good. I love the fun and quirky decor. Highly recommend for a group dinner so you can try everything on the menu!
Very good food. I’ve tried many times and was back for more. The fryer was down as the ceiling was leaking from the heavy rain though.. I didn’t managed to eat the starters I liked.
the staff was very friendly and the menu is quite inspiring. small portions for not low price but the quality is very good. would recommend it for a special evening and will go again
We loved the lively and quirky ambience. The food was good and flavourful! Go for the lobster tail, red snapper and pork collar for bigger plates. Wagyu striploin was so-so in terms of flavour.
The menu, designed by chef Ryan Clift (previously from Tippling Club) features Asian-inspired share plates, and cocktails with Asian flavours. We weren't expecting much from this fusion concept, but this is fusion done well.
The food was a bit disappointing and over priced for the quality and the portion. The servers aren't very helpful and don't seem very experienced perhaps it's because it's a relatively new restaurant. The only thing amazed me is the interior design and the ambience. But I don't think I will pay my second visit there.
We had a great dinner, we tried the menu where they select dishes and bring them out to your table. We would recommend this for people interested in trying a variety of items.
