About Original Sin

Legend has it that Eve didn’t pluck an apple from the tree of knowledge, share it with Adam and let loose a Pandora’s box of evil upon the world, but that she actually committed the rather righteous act of heading up to Holland Village’s Original Sin, with her Edenic partner in tow, to order up a smorgasbord of divine Mediterranean food, unleashing instead a culinary voyage of Odyssean proportions. This fruitful Mediterranean restaurant tucked down Jalan Merah Saga at Chip Bee Gardens is all about guilt-free, healthy dining with dishes made from ethically-sourced ingredients, putting the good back into Singapore’s crowded restaurant scene.

Further Information

One way into Original Sin’s Mediterranean restaurant paradise, besides booking your table and checking your coat at the door to their Holland Village premises down Jalan Merah Saga, is to opt for the set lunch menu. This introduction to light and airy, colourful and healthy Mediterranean cuisine in one of Singapore’s certifiable dining hotspots starts with the soup of the day or a green salad, moves into Mediterranean tortilla wraps with chickpea and pumpkin spread, grilled eggplant, feta and salad, veggie burgers made with brown rice and chickpea patties or Italian spaghetti with zucchini, olives and cherry tomatoes tossed in a tomato and basil sauce and topped with parmesan. Finish with warm chocolate cake and, holy Maria, you’ve just indulged in one of the city’s freshest and best vegetarian meals.

Original Sin’s a la carte menu takes in cuisines from all the nations that encircle the Mediterranean, bringing peerless colour and flavour to Singapore’s Holland Village community of restaurants . Choose a starter like the classic pomodoro, go Middle Eastern with the sublime mezze platter for two, or get really divine with the magic mushrooms! Main courses follow the same pan-Mediterranean pattern: Italian pizza, lasagna and strozzapreti (strangled priest) pasta, Greek moussaka and spanakopita, and more. There’s even vegetable tandoori and Kashmir-style pizza – not a crime against nature by any means!

Nice environment. Food was good. They even help to put a candle on their cake when they knew about my friend birthday and they waive off the cake charges.

Original Sin's amazing vegetarian mediterranean cousine offers lots of options of delicious dishes. It makes many of the vegetarian recipes of that region, without trying to reinvent vegetarian versions of meat dishes. It is authentic, well prepared and nicely presented. Service is very attentive and the location is excellent.

This was our first visit to Original Sin. The online booking worked without a hitch. Parking was no hassle with public parking lots nearby. Cozy place, nice décor with the tree of knowledge of good and evil reinforcing the "Original Sin" theme. No intrusive music. Choice of indoor and outdoor seating. Staff helped by explaining the menu and suggesting items to try. Food was tasty and wholesome. Being vegetarian was no limitation to the restaurant's Mediterranean cuisine. Service was prompt and attentive without being fussy. Glad we picked this restaurant for our special family dinner on Christmas day. We will definitely go back to "Sin", though the premium pricing does not encourage it to be next week.

Took my former boss to Original Sin since she is a vegetarian. She loved the food. I am not a vegetarian but I like Original Sin as well. Very good vegetarian food in a casual setting.

Original Sin was excellent as usual. The food was very good, service excellent. Ambiance was a bit noisy. The biggest issue was that they did not have my reservation. Lucky they still had a nice table. I showed them the email that I received from Quandoo confirming my reservation. So there's a problem somewhere.

Been there quite a few times throughout their 18 years of existence. Always enjoyed their food very much. The price of food has gone up quite a bit since the last time I was there (have not been there for the last ten years). We had five dishes for four persons (without dessert or drinks) and the bill was around S$160. The last time I was there, the aircon was not working well. One of the two was spoiled. I think the two aircon is insufficient if the restaurant is full, hope it can be fixed.

Great food, service and setting too. A vegetarian restaurant that isn't really a cafe is quite rare in Singapore so Original Sin is certainly a good choice for a social evening meal.

Original Sin offers a great ambiance, with great food and friendly service. A vegetarian restaurant with class and elegance, I would recommend the spot for a great evening with good friends.
