Newly relocated to Selegie Road’s PoMo Mall in Dhoby Ghaut, The Clan’s elegant European degustation restaurant is set to take central Singapore by storm all over again. With an innovative menu expertly matched with wines from The Clan’s extensive cellars, it’s to The Clan that Singapore’s discerning diners come for gourmet dining, whether for romance or celebration. Take a seat in this chic, elegant restaurant and discover The Clan’s distinctive take on modern European cuisine.
The Clan could hardly have chosen a better new location for their elegant European degustation dining than in Singapore’s Dhoby Ghaut, in the PoMo Mall down Selegie Road. This privileged position is passed on to customers, who dine luxuriously on dishes typically given a contemporary twist. European fusion is the emphasis here, and the surprising combinations dreamed up in the kitchen are sure to tantalise the tastebuds. The centrepiece of The Clan’s menu is the sumptuous set or degustation menu, from which diners can pick their way through (just for example) grilled giant octopus, escargot and razor clams, chowder and ginseng consomme, barbecued Iberian pork, rounding it all off with The Clan’s homemade gelato topped with chocolate lava. Their latest addition is the light lunch menu too, which is health-conscious while not scrimping on flavour and panache.
It goes without saying that at The Clan one’s food is immaculately matched with one’s drink. Western Australian sauvignon blanc, riesling and shiraz are perfect foils for The Clan’s appetisers and main courses, while a sweet Italian moscato helps dessert down. If you are looking to woo a date, entertain colleagues, or host the most talked about Singapore dinner party of the year, you can’t go past The Clan. Reservations for tables at The Clan’s new Selegie Road, Dhoby Ghaut premises are definitely recommended.
The food is fresh, and the tastes were light and clean. Each dish was artfully presented. The service was excellent. The decor is lovely. This would be a perfect place to take a date.
Great fine-dining food at a very reasonable price. You get a 6-course dinner at only $78++ which is really hard to find elsewhere. In addition, they have engaged live band for every night that they are open, which adds to the experience. Been there several times and it was always a wonderful experience.
Valentine's Day Dinner menu was a hit with the both of us. Wasn't expecting a special menu but the quality of food was good none-the-less. Prices were pretty alright, with the couples' menu coming in at 148++. Missed the Wagyu on Hoba leaf this time, that's on my to-do list for my next visit!
I've been to the Clan Restaurant many times, from the time they were at Bukit Pasoh to now in Pomo. As usual, the food is good, service is good and price is very value for money. The service staff even prepared a birthday chocolate tart for my husband when they knew we were celebrating his birthday. Highly recommended!
My first time visit to The Clan Restaurant, was a birthday celebration for my dad. They have excellent service and food was awesome. If those who have been to Dozo before, you will definitely find it very similar, as one of the chef was from there and started The Clan. The place has very nice ambience, elegant decor, quiet and peaceful. If you are looking for a nice place to dine at, this is highly recommended. The staffs were very attentive towards us, checking on us to make sure everything is great for us. The courses were served very promptly. The best dish was the Wayu Loin, will definitely be back for it again. The lamb was good, but certainly medium doneness was a little over for us, should have ordered medium well instead. Given that the Wayu Loin was on the hot stone, we used the hot stone to further seared our Lamb, as it was still a little bloody for the lamb. The best part was they reheat the stone for us to further grill our lamb. Was quite amusing, as fine dinning ended up to become like Korean BBQ, as there were some smoke at our tables. The wrap up for dessert was beautiful, I personally like the chocolate lava with home-make gelato, get your cameras ready when you order this. It was indeed sweet of them to surprised my dad with their chocolate truffle cake as his birthday cake with happy birthday written on the plate served for him. Had a great and beautiful night at The Clan for my family.
I have been to The Clan Restaurant for quite a number of times. This time, we were there to celebrate Mothers' Day. The food is as usual excellent, atmosphere is good. Price is also reasonable for the quality of food you get. Service was impeccable. We had 2 young kids with us and ordered one 2-course set lunch for them to share. (The adults ordered the 6 course degustation menu each). The staff were very kind and service was good despite my young, noisy kids. They gave 2 complimentary steamed eggs for my kids and 2 servings of ice-cream for them although we only ordered one set lunch for two of them to share. Thank you very much. We will be back again.
The food and overall ambience was good, however, the portions were small (as expected for 'fine' dining) and I'm not a big eater in the first place but I was barely full by the end of it. My boyfriend proclaimed himself 40% full hahaha. We used the American Express card for 50% off alacarte items (same as the set menu but individual items are more expensive). We had two appetizers, two soups, two mains, and one dessert between the two of us. The appetizers we had were the kurobuta pork belly and the herb-crusted escargots. Both were wonderful, maybe costing about $16-18 on the alacarte menu (can't remember correctly apologies!). We had the cepes mushroom soup and seafood bisque. I felt that the mushroom soup's flavour was fantastic, but it could be a bit creamier. My boyfriend loved the seafood bisque. The soups were $12 each. For mains, we chose the sliced beef on hot lava stone, and the kurobuta pork belly. The mains were $32 each if I remember correctly. The beef was very good (if slightly gimmicky), and I felt that it could be warmer. The pork belly was very good, but the portion was on the small side. It was served with a 63 degrees celcius egg yolk that my boyfriend enjoyed. For dessert, we had the chocolate lava cake with homemade gelato ($16?) It was small-portioned and nothing to shout about. However, I'd like to commend our waiter who was very attentive. While serving our chocolate lava cake, he asked if my boyfriend and I were celebrating any special occasion (which we were - our anniversary). He then surprised us with another dessert (chocolate truffle cake) with chocolate writing on the plate, which was a beautiful end to our night :)
Had fond memories of a dinner party there when they were in their old location. So when I finally had an off day, decided to go there with my boyfriend. The place is in a surprising location, yet once you step in, there is a very nice ambiance. Quiet and peaceful, slightly sleepy decor. Service was excellent as usual, very attentive and personalized, just how I remember it. At first we thought the food was coming a bit slow then we realized they were waiting for us to leisurely finish each course before coming with the next. (I guess we are not used to fine dining ha ha). As for the food, we had the 6 course set dinner. I do not think I am personally qualified to review fine dinning, but I can say, that we really enjoyed it all. The soup was very rich, their cold and hot starters were a something we had not tasted before but still very nice, and the Ocean trout I had has main course was particularly delicious. Soft and tender and flavorful. And we couldn't help but stare at the next time when their main course came too (but I do not know its name. All in all we do feel like we would definitely come here again.
My friend and I had the 6-course dinner at the Clan. Overall, I'm fairly pleased with the dinner. The Wagyu Beef, Duck Confit, Foie Gras & Clan Pasta were absolutely delicious. The Tiramisu - a little disappointed. The Cocoa Dusts were a little bitter (charred taste) and unpleasant. Service was pretty alright, the waitress serving us was able to provide us with recommendations. On the night we went over, the Clan had hosted a large cohort of people celebrating a couple's 30 year(or 20) anniversary. They filled up most of the restaurant, leaving three/four tables for other customers (we happened to be one of them). It was really rowdy as people were singing (terribly) old school mandarin songs and that just threw off the entire restaurant's atmosphere. It would be nice if the Clan would have send through a message/email informing us of the crowd that they were hosting. If not- they should have just blocked out the entire restaurant for the night. If not for the crowd, I think it would the Clan would be a fairly pleasant place for a nice dinner. Nevertheless, the Clan is still worth checking out/going back (particularly for the Wagyu Beef and Foie Gras).
It seems like the service crew changes rather frequent. With each change of crew, attention to detail drops a little. For example, there used to be sorbets in between courses to cleanse the palate. Some practices are retained, eg suggesting we begin the chef's starter from the right but not explaining why and what to look out for in taste (this was done during my first visit which helped enrich the experience). overall, food was okay. For some dishes, it looks better than it tastes (the chocolate lava was not lava. nothing flowed and was more of a molten chocolate cake) but all dishes were paired with the sauces and garnishes quite well. whatever was on the plate had a purpose and it wasn't put there just to make the dish look pretty. 7/10 for the food. 8.5/10 when inside clan restaurant (the building itself sort of spoils the overall experience). Generally quiet and lots of privacy if seated in the far corners. 8/10 for service. Despite all I said, I can see that they are trying under what it seems to be another new management.
