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.
Superb Dinner! Experienced and Dedicated owner and staff who knows their dishes. Fresh ingredients used. Good value for money. Definitely will return for another round of fabulous food.
This is my 4th or 5th time dining here and the food is superb as usual! Service was a little slower but that's coz it was crowded too.
No frills old school kind of Chinese restaurant located in an old shopping centre. Food was above average and worth going back for. Price of food was reasonable.
Excellent service and good quality of food. We are so happy and enjoy our dinner there. Will definitely visit again and it’s so near to our place :)
Came once during my birthday. Now is mother's day lunch out. Food, service and price all are great. Positive feedback from family members. Will definitely come back again.
Good comfort food. Enjoyed the oyster omelette and the flaming pork rib but will not order the lotus seed chicken again. I think they have one of the best orh nee (yam dessert).
Most of their dishes we tried were quite good and authentic, it was served to us quite fast too. Overall was good though would prefer a bit more choices on their meat dishes.
Food was served quickly and the food were of quality! Had a great dinner as the staff were all very friendly. Location may be a little inconvenient but worth going for the food.
Good food. Need to book on weekends or u will not get a table. We ordered salted egg crayfish which was rather bland. Should have done Chili instead.rest of signature dishes still good
Resercation was done without a hitch. Table was already prepared before arrival. Good food that are good value for money. Will definitely return for more in future!
