Chinese food in Singapore comes in many forms, with every region of the world’s most populous nation represented. Over on Upper Serangoon Road, Fragrant Garden specialises in Teochew cuisine, from the dialect group centred around Chaoshan and eastern Guangdong, and their house signatures represent the very best of the culinary tradition in that region. Try the stuffed sea cucumber, cold crab or steamed halibut – all done in the Teochew style – alongside signature noodle and rice dishes including ee-fu noodle with gravy or sambal fried rice. Reserve ahead at this Serangoon gem before seats fill up.
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.
Food is yummy, but the place is too cold and the close very earlier. Last order is 9pm and the shopping mall close at 10pm.
Overall food quality is good and the chillies paste is great. Could do better with serving plain cold water. Atmosphere and environment is quite relaxing.

Generally good. Loved everything we ordered other than the oyster omelette which was too starchy :( Will definitely comeback again with my family and friends.
Quality yet affordable teochew dishes. Will definitely return again! Great place for gatherings with family and friends. The yam paste dessert is a must !
Good food as usually the case. Quite crowded though but service was prompt and staff very friendly. Recommended this place for small informal gatherings too.
Teochew Food is good. ..the braised duck , orh nee and promfret steam boat.The aircond in the bldg is very stong so bring a sweater
Food was good and fast despite the hugh crowd who were there for their reunion dinner Will be back again for other kinds of gathering.
The staff practically ignore you when u needed their assistance like topping up hot water for the tea or clearing the dirty plates to make way for new ones. They only gave attention when we need to take order or make payment. Food was not bad but service is horrible.
Nice food at affordable price!!! We will love to return to restaurant for next gathering. Hope we have more offer and promotions from the restaurant.
