More about Fragrant Garden, Singapore

While the majority of the attention among Singapore’s Chinese restaurants might be focused on the celebrated cuisines that come from Sichuan, with its numbing peppercorns and plenty of chillies; from Beijing, with the iconic Peking duck; or from Canton, rich and well-balanced in nature; you’d do well to remember that there’s still a whole lot more to Chinese fare. Over in Serangoon, Fragrant Garden flies the flag high when it comes to Teochew cuisine – delivering light, yet flavourful dishes that were mostly prepared by steaming, poaching, or braising.

With a wide-ranging menu that encompasses everything from seafood to meat, egg and tofu, to even noodle and rice dishes, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Fragrant Garden. Don’t let that overwhelm you, however, as the affable crew at this Serangoon restaurant is always on hand to assist you with a handful of recommendations. Our favourites include the local spinach in broth, stir-fried venison with garlic and onion, steamed pomfret in Teochew style, black pepper crayfish, as well as the signature fried rice. Conveniently located along Upper Serangoon Road, a stone’s throw away from Serangoon MRT, Fragrant Garden counts among Singapore’s most-sought after Chinese restaurants. Get down with your friends and family for an authentic Teochew feast, but do remember to reserve well in advance to avoid disappointment.

The pork jelly was excellent and we had melt in your mouth Kong Bak Pau. The chai Po Kway Teow cooked to perfection. The kids enjoyed the flaming pork show. Wonderful experience in a deserted old shopping Centre at night . Surreal experience.

I read very good reviews from blogs and went with high expectations of good Teochew food. Most of the tables are in the atrium of a very old mall. For 6 people we were given a table for 10 placed against a pillar. It was very hard to reach dishes and we had to stand up in order to serve ourselves. Service is basic. Things are just placed on the table with no explanation and no help with serving. The food is the most important and we were mostly disappointed. The pork jelly was fragrant and served well chilled and the best dish. It was all downhill from there. The Haechow and liver roll was ordinary like any chichar stall. Spinach in superior stock was nothing we could not do at home. Braised goose flavour of the braise was quite fragrant but the meat was dry and tough, another signature Teochew dish done badly. The very large pomfret steamed Teochew style which cost $72 was overcooked, resulting in hard and dry meat. This is quite unforgivable in a Teochew restaurant! Chaipo Kway teow underwhelmingly tasteless. we decided not to order the famous orh nee as we all the other teochew dishes had been disappointing. We went away pretty disappointed with the experience.

Dishes were all excellently executed and we enjoyed most of them very much. In particular, the steamed Teochew fish (not the pomfret, but a large fillet of a saltwater fish) and the ornee stood out as the best dishes of the night. Unfortunately, the restaurant is located in a relatively inconvenient place to go to and we'd probably only return for special occasions once in a while. But highly recommended for great and traditional Teochew dishes!

Great food, friendly and fast service. I highly recommend the Halibut with Hong Kong sauce. It is exceptionally good - the Halibut is flaky and taste like cod fish. I also ordered prawn roll and kong bak pau which were very good as well. And of course you should have Orh Nee for dessert :)

The food was good but we were seated outside on the left side and the air con was very cold. Apart from the coldness, the food and environment was good. Just need to wear a jacket and long pants if you are afraid of cold.

Overall the food is up to my expectations, the only disappointment is the waiting time of just a plate of mee goreng, it only came after we finished all our dishes and despite our several reminder! The reason given by one of the staff is over crowded but frying a plate of mee need longer time than other dishes, I really cannot accept this explanation.

Food was reasonably priced. Ordered the popular dishes : braised duck x 2 , flaming pork x2, prawn paste chicken, chaipo kwayteow, oyster orh lua, crab tofu, or nee. Total bill about $260 for 12 pax. Food was promptly served once seated. Will go again for future gatherings.
