The Peranakans are the descendents of the Chinese pioneers who settled across Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia as early as the 15th century. Fusing Chinese cuisine with the indigenous cuisines of the settled lands, the Peranakans developed flavourful dishes all their own, which, luckily for you, are available to try at Singapore’s Nyonya & Baba Peranakan Cuisine inside of HarbourFront’s VivoCity. This is one restaurant that stands out from the other restaurants on HarbourFront Walk.

Food was great and yummy. Friendly serving staff. However, the deserts was a let-down - tapioca was blend and the chendol was too sweet. Also the meat from the babi pongteh was mostly fats.
The service was average. The staff seemed nonchalant. But it wasn't bad in any way. The food was pretty good. Well cooked. The beef rending was tender. The unlimited rice is a nice touch.
Food was average despite friends' raves. Satay chicken cubes were rather boney. And they ran out of desserts...imagine no chendol or gula malaka at a nyonya restaurant. Fortunately many nice dessert places at Vivocity, we enjoyed the sweet concoctions at Honeymoon Desserts.
a bit disappointing; as i expected to savour more of ayam buah keluak paste and the bakwan soup too no real taste of crab meat.
Nice ambience. Easy to locate, food not bad. Reasonable price
