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? 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. 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.
Their menu is really extensive. So much to choose from and reasonably priced considering the premium location. I'm slowly eating my way through the menu.
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.
I am rather impressed by the level of attentiveness given by each serving staff. Rather professional for a causal dining in experience. Food-wise, decent but nothing near impressive.
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.
Food was good, we ordered two mains & desserts. Environment was quiet and cosy, good for small, intimate gatherings. Service was prompt and quite efficient
The place is kind of under staff. Some times have to wait a while before a server notice us. Ice water wasn’t refilled. And next table is abit too close.
Went there for lunch. Food was great. Service not so much. Too few personnel waiting tables and had to wait a while for anything we requested.
