Hail up, Singapore, you’re a city of firsts, and now you’re a city with a Caribbean restaurant. But Lime House, down Jiak Chuan Road in the district of Outram Park, is more than just a jerk chicken shack. Jerk chicken they got, but there be bags of other stuff too. Wah gwaan? Well, four storeys of fun await the rude bwoys an’ gyals of Singapore – Lime House is a restaurant, club, lounge bar, and private social club all rolled up into one fat and fragrant venue. Read on for more information about Lime House’s food and good times, and how this institution is the embassy for rum in Singapore.
Stacked up like a swag of frackles in a gorgeous Singaporean heritage building, Lime House runs the road down Jiak Chuan. More emphatically, Lime House’s four Outram Park storeys hab di Jamrock ting lack. That is, this Caribbean restaurant, bar and social club has the Jamaican vibe well and truly under their thumbs and under control. The first floor is where the chillin’ and dinin’ gets started, seating up to 60 in a spacious room that preserves the original shop’s tiled floor. The menu is bursting with specialities of Caribbean cuisine – baby back ribs glazed with a Trinidadian BBQ sauce, the famous Jamaican jerk chicken (Lime House’s most popular dish, this uses the famous Scotch bonnet chilli pepper!), and curried goat dishes. Wash it down with a deconstructed pina colada or another lang and rum-heavy Caribbean concoction and the mood is set for going higher in the Lime House.
Before you head heavenwards, let it be known that besides a forest of boutique rums from all over the Caribbean and Latin America, the house rum here is Mount Gay from Barbados, the world’s first rum company. And a word to the wise: the mixologists here are collaborating with Global Rum Ambassador and RUM JAM host Ian Burrell on a new Jerk Daiquiri, using the same infernal Scotch bonnet chillies that light a fire under the restaurant’s signature jerk chicken. Heat up! The second floor of Lime House’s Outram Park premises down Jiak Chuan road is all about finding a little bass to wind up your waist. Drinks aplenty, plus a good food selection, but most importantly this is where Lime House’s resident selectahs and sound boys mash up the club on selected nights. Selected indeed, you can also join in a quiz night or a live music Jamdown jam. Floor number 3 is ideal for after-work drinks and private hire amongst friends and colleagues, while we gotta say Lime House’s highest level is the true Zion – an open-air, breezy, easy rooftop lounge reserved for members of Lime House’s private social club. A Caribbean palace for Singapore’s don dadas and their empresses!
food is nice, but the price is a bit more than the value. It is worthy trying their main course , especially amex card has 50% off on the food. I don't think i will be regular guest for the kind of price on food, however drink is not expensive though.
Food was fantastic, excellent service, overall a great experience. Recommended dishes: Caribbean seafood cakes, jerk chicken skewers, oxtail, fried plantains, macaroni pie... My mother was pleased that there were yummy vegetarian options as well.
Awesome experience. Will definitely be back for the delicious and wonderful food and drinks. The wait staff were also attentive and quick to attend to us, though they were, at times, a little too eager to clear out our dishes.
Overall experience was good and was happy with the food served and service provided. The inner part of the restaurant was a little to dim. Parking is a problem so if you are planning to dine there, make sure you have the patience to wait for parking as it's limited.
It is a really cool place, with a nice looking local, very good food and reggae music! Definitely to try! Absolutely great for a chill out Friday night like the one we had!
Awesome staff! Service was better than expected :D They were told I was celebrating my bday so I Got a bday cake and 4 shots free of charge ! Play list was impeccable and ambience is quite cool !
The service was very gracious. I took a date and the staff seemed to be extra attentive and came right up when I dropped a spoon. The Filipino waitress was super nice.
It was really crowded when I went, due to the events related to the new street closure. Service was therefore a little slow and disorganized. But overall, it's a place that offers decent food with a fun ambience.
The food is excellent! And the environment is comfortable for dinning. The waitress are kind and always with smiley face. Furthermore the location is good, near to the outram park mrt station. Recommended place to go for dinning!
Could be more attentive with the service. Food was good and portion size is good for the price as well. However not as authentic as I would love it to be. People are really loud and couldn’t hear the good music that’s been playing at the background.
