The team at Singapore’s Mad Nest on East Coast Road are shaking up the city’s restaurant scene. They have thrown out tired notions of set menus, a single head chef and an overriding theme and replaced it with eclectic cuisine championed by a number of young chefs with food from Japan, North India, Thailand and China. This menu is matched with beers, wines and spirits suitable for the global range on offer in this Katong eatery.
Guests to East Coast Road’s Mad Nest are welcomed into a dining room that speaks of the restaurant’s quiet ambition. The Katong dining space is awash with minimalist beige and greys, allowing the food’s bold colour and flavour to speak for itself. Diners are invited to choose from a menu which demonstrates the skill and tenacity in the kitchen. Choose from sushi, meat fresh from the tandoor or the team’s beloved Thai-Chinese fusion dishes.
East Coast Road Mad Nest is among Singapore’s most ambitious offerings. Blending art, a global mindset and a commitment to doing things their own way, the Mad Nest team are changing things up in Singapore’s Katong. As the dining room doubles as a gallery space, there room is constantly evolving, showcasing art from Singapore's up-and-coming designers and artists. Perhaps this is the crux of the reason that the Mad Nest is pulling dinners from across the city – blending art, food and globalism, they can only succeed in ultra-modern Singapore.
love the ambience of this restaurant. not too crowded and have alot of personal space. perfect for a group gathering as well. theres a wide variety of food from indian, thai, japanese and the staffs are friendly to recommend their favourites. Will definitely be my group's hangout place
Dinner w a friend tonight. while I personally liked it, my friend thought the volcano ramen was just average. We loved the atmosphere though.
Had a great dinner here with a friend. We loved the food, particularly the Tom yam beef rice and volcano ramen. awesome!
Went there with a friend tonight. It being a fusion place, my friend was skeptical at first, but totally sold after he tried the food!
Extremely friendly and thoughtful crew. Told them to prepare a candle for the dessert as it was my friend's birthday on the day of reservation. They called to inform me that their menu has changed and they weren't serving desserts at that moment (or something like that), but offered to get me a cake. Upon arrival, I was welcomed by the staff and they were accommodating to my requests as I planned to surprise my friend. I was impressed by their excellent service and great food :-) will be back again definitely!
Food was fantastic. We ate from each of the restaurants that Madnest offers. Taste was fantastic, and food came out quickly, our favourite of all the dishes came from Haveli (the North Indian restaurant in Madnest). Decor is nice too. And, added bonus being they have electronic dart boards. The reason that we didn't give a 6 out of 6 was that the cocktails looked great but didn't taste so great, hence, a little improvement needed for the cocktails.
I've been coming here for a long time, since before it even existed (s/o to Mad Thai), and I like this place overall for food, presentation, ambience, and service. They have good promotions if you're a beer drinker. Staff are friendly, helpful, and quite accommodating. The only thing is their fried food lacks consistency, sometimes too oily or too much batter.
Thank you! My wife and I had a wonderful Valentine's Day date. It was really awesome and we enjoyed our date very much. Thank you Mad Nest!
I would say the food is pretty mediocre, and for the price you're paying, definitely not worth it. I ordered 2- 3 each from the jap, Thai and Indian menu. For example, for Indian cuisine, ordered chicken tikka and lamb seekh kebab. Being an Indian, I can arguably comment on how off the seekh kebab was. It's not meant to be sweet, and looked like poop. What a go at the presentation guys! I mean I could always get poop at home free of cost. For Thai, ordered pineapple rice and hotplate tofu. Both were good. Jap was meh. Lastly, most likely, I owe one of the waitresses (seemed mixed blood) a huge imaginary debt that I've yet to pay her. Or else, why else would you expect such a dull service? Yes could have been her day off but reading past reviews, that doesn't seem to be the case. Overall, this place deserves a 3.5/10. First and last.
First time to Mad Nest and I'm loving this chillout place! Good food and booze, great ambience and very friendly staffs! Definitely be back real soon!
