Forbidden Duck Singapore is a gift that keeps on giving, courtesy of three-Michelin starred chef, Alvin Leung. Forbidden Duck Singapore specialises in Cantonese dishes and afternoon dim sum, made with only the finest ingredients chosen by the chef himself and then made even better with a few modern touches. You’ll find Forbidden Duck inside Marina Bay Link Mall on Marina Boulevard, pretty much opposite Downtown MRT station but also not far from Bayfront or Telok Ayer. It’s a stylish restaurant that we can’t get enough of and one that’s very popular. Reserve your table ahead of time to avoid missing out.
Dear diners, please be aware that both the slow-cooked duck and giant egg tart must be pre-ordered 24 hours in advance. Thank you!
Forbidden Duck Singapore may sound mysterious but the flavours at this bold Cantonese restaurant are anything but. Three-Michelin starred chef Alvin Leung ensures the very opposite, in fact, regardless of the time of day you stop by. Head to the Marina Bay Link Mall in the afternoon for a dim sum menu that’s bursting with flavour and includes dishes like fried rice with egg white and conpoy, steamed black truffle and duck tongue dumplings, or crispier options such as barbecue pork milk bun with crystal sugar. Nowhere else in Marina Bay will you find little Cantonese plates like these. That much we guarantee.
Later in the day at Forbidden Duck Singapore, the a la carte menu offers exquisite Cantonese dishes that are worth travelling for, regardless of where you’re based in the city. Signatures include the slow roasted whole duck (only a limited number of which are available daily); seafood rice in aromatic duck soup; boneless duck with taro cake and plum sauce and butter braised whole South African abalone with cauliflower. As you can see, this is not your standard Cantonese cooking. The food at Forbidden Duck Singapore is a cut above most other Chinese restaurants in Singapore and we really can’t recommend it enough.
Good service and very nice food. We all enjoyed delicious food and the lunch was everything we hoped it would be. Thank you so much.
A good place if you don’t like crowd while in need of affordable good hk style Chinese food. The food were served too quickly though.
Great service and food! Love the duck, the sweet and sour pork, as well as the egg tart! Definitely will be back again! Really good!
