O’nya Sayang’s duo of Asian restaurants in Singapore are all about helping a new generation rediscover the pleasures of Peranakan cuisine in a setting that is far removed from the rustic kampong setting normally associated with this culinary tradition. The restaurant’s name means ‘love of a Peranakan mother’, and indeed here in the Tampines Mall, right by the station along Tampines Central, you can get your fill of classic Peranakan dishes, cooked just like your nyonya used to.
Check out O’nya Sayang’s special menu and their signature set menu!
The two O’nya Sayang restaurants – here in Singapore’s Tampines Mall and another at Paya Lebar Square Mall – were founded by executive chef Zan Ho, who grew up in a traditional Peranakan kitchen learning how to cook the famous blend of Straits Chinese and Malay cuisines that forms the tradition from his mother and aunties. Using a careful blend of exotic ingredients and spices, O’nya Sayang’s kitchens turn out fragrant and complex dishes, some of which take days to prepare.
Take your seats at O’nya Sayang’s clean-lined and bright premises inside the Tampines Mall along Tampines Central and you’ll already notice the aromas of traditional Peranakan cuisine pervading the space. This inspired, ancient Asian fusion cuisine is well-loved in Singapore, but rarely is it given a classy restaurant treatment. Here at O’nya Sayang you can find all the classics, from ngoh hiang and ayam buah keluak, bakwan kepeting soup, ikan assam pedas, to babi pongteh and nyonya chap chye plus many others like the highly recommended beef rendang.
Nice food.. good service... staffs are friendly and keep wearing a smile.. will definitely be back as i love peranakan food. Hope to have babi ponteh..
Great food at value price especially the set meals! Will definitely be back and highly recommended. UOB credit cards get 15 % discount. Thumbs up!
The food is good and the price is quite reasonable. Will go back in future to try more stuffs on the menu. A gd dining experience.
The staff looked so clueless about my reservation, which made me wonder whether it even went through. Food was pretty good though, value for money
The best part of my experience at O'nya Sayang - Tampines was the attitude of the staff. I found them extremely friendly and accommodating. The food items my friend and I enjoyed most were the kueh pie tie, otah-otah and assam fish. These are the items I would not hesitate going back for.
My girlfriend and me only liked the Bakwan Kepeting Soup because the rest of food are not nice. Put too much water before serving Water Chestnut drink. Sago Gula Melaka Ice Cream is not awesome because they never use coconut ice cream. In conclusion, not affordable peranakan food at Tampines Mall outlet due to Archar and Assam Pedas Fish as part of the set menu.
overall food tasty,good and prices very affordable and service ok, but surprise that this restaurant is in the open atrium very different from the picture we saw on the website.
Suggest not to sit at the last table on the longest row as sometimes the water from washing may splash out. Set meal is good
Pretty bad food was served. No beef rendang as seen in their website. Chap Chye veggies, Assam Fish, and Ayam Buah Keluak were very bad - not even up to the standard of normal economic rice stalls. Only Soup & Ngoh Hiang are not bad.
We are very disappointed with food serving. Food review did not meet our expectation. Not consistent in theirs food serving. This was the first and last meal there.
