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 was yummy and portion of food was just right for our table. . Love the arrangement on table booking whereby your name and MP is place on the reserve table.
Enjoyed the attentive and courteous service, The Teochew food is authentic and good. Surprisingly the fish head curry is very good. The price is reasonable and overall happy with the experience.
A good variety of teochew spread in the menu. Food was served very soon after order but unfortunately our request for cut red chillies had to be repeated 3 times before it was finally brought to our table.
Good place for a big gathering of people. Lots of parking. Food is (I think) traditional Teochew fare, and its tasty. Service is quite prompt.
The food was sublime. It is a jewel to be discovered in the heartlands! I would highly recommend the teochew cold crab and pork belly.
My third trip in 3 months. Fantastic teochew food, service , price. Parking ample. They helped us with the birthday cake. My familys current favourite joint. Please support this place.
