If you like French cuisine but are unfamiliar with PAUL, you’re in for a real treat. No, we’re not talking about a cool guy named Paul – we’re talking about one of Singapore’s most beloved family of French restaurants. The PAUL we have in mind is located in Takashimaya, the well-known Japanese department store on Orchard Road. So, if you’re shopping ‘til you’re dropping, why not end your spending spree with a well-deserved French dinner at PAUL, your home away from home? This charming spot also offers a balanced wellness menu that’s brimming with fresh fruits, quinoa, vegetables and whole grains, so you can keep things nicely balanced. This bistro began baking bread in the 19th century and is showing no signs of slowing down, so be sure to reserve a table and taste French cuisine made for everyone.
PAUL got its start in France way back in 1889 with humble beginnings as a family-run bakery. Nowadays, you’ll find over 500 PAUL pastry shops and restaurants around the world, all offering a large selection of artisanal breads alongside a menu of exceptional French dishes. There are six locations in Singapore alone, including this one inside of Takashimaya shopping centre on Orchard Road.
PAUL at Takashimaya on Orchard Road is famous for its bread, so be sure to try one of the delicious sandwiches on offer – we like the sesame camembert and the tomato mozzarella, but there’s plenty more where that came from. It’s not just bread and sandwiches here at PAUL though, you’ll also find tasty main courses including French classics like grilled rack of lamb with seasonal vegetables or more contemporary options like soft shell crab pasta in spicy Asian sauce. Plus, lots of healthy ingredients such as whole grains and cereals, quinoa, fresh fruits and vegetables and dairy products in the mix. That way you can make the right decision for you when it comes to filling up at PAUL. And if you like desserts, PAUL does not disappoint. The macarons (best served with a cup of coffee) are on another level. Book a table ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
The staff may be very busy at the moment we stepped into the restaurant due to a big crowd the day we visited but she was reassuring and even bother to remember provide us a window seat as we requested in Quandoo. Through we stood waiting for approximately 10 minutes, she got us a seat whenever the seat was ready.
Attentive and prompt wait staff. Had a good experience and will come again to try other items on e menu
Came in the late afternoon when cafe was quieter. Attentive and prompt wait staff..
Great, nice place with nice food. Great service top. And reservation thru Quandoo is fuss free
It is a busy afternoon. I appreciate the manager is very hardworking in clearing up the table fast so that the queuing customers are able to get seated. The brunch is excellent and it is value for money. Pleasant experiences and we will definitely be back.
It was during a public holiday so the restaurant was busy but overall experience was fine. Food and drinks were okay though can be more comparable to Paul in France.
Opens early from the morning with the morning menu. Very convenient location to have a break after shopping. Also they are kids friendly and have good service.
Casual and nice place to catch up with friends. Easily accessible at Ngee Ann City. Overall food and service is good. Recommended for weekday evening catchups as it is not so crowded.
Branch is understaffed so service is quite slow. Food-wise, I had their lunch set meal and it was very value for money. Starters were the best - especially the vegetable quiche! Tasted like pizza, very flavourful with crispy crust.
This Paul's is the best in town. They have great lunch sets and the staff is attentive. One of those places that will accommodate most requests
