The Halia at Raffles Hotel is the sister restaurant to The Halia at Singapore Botanic Gardens. It may not be in the middle of a ginger grove, but the Halia philosophy of sustainable, international fusion food persists – as does the distinctive flavour and aroma of the restaurant’s namesake, the ginger plant (ginger’s Malay name is halia). Neither does it sacrifice on location – located in Singapore’s iconic Raffles Hotel, on the ground floor of the Raffles Hotel Arcade, between the intersection of North Bridge Road and Seah Street just a stone’s throw from Esplanade MRT station, dining here is done in luxury.
Halia is the Malay word for ginger, and gives its name to a group of critically-acclaimed international restaurants: The Halia at Singapore Botanic Gardens, The Halia in Hanoi and, here, The Halia At Raffles Hotel, in the heart of the city right by Esplanade. The exoticism and warmth of the ginger plant inform all of The Halia’s menus, and in the ground floor arcade of Singapore’s famous Raffles Hotel, prominently located between the intersection of North Bridge Road & Seah Street, these qualities are augmented by an undeniable taste of luxury.
Here, diners are treated to inimitable Raffles hospitality, with menus featuring signature dishes such as the Singapore-style chilli crab spaghettini, Javanese spiced rack of lamb, the celeriac lasagna and Oriental pulled duck. Before or after dinner, treat yourself to a Hendrick’s Singapore Sling, The Halia at Raffles Hotel’s interpretation of the classic cocktail – a drink that can’t be missed in Singapore. Drinks are served at The Halia’s al fresco bar, where you can also check out a selection of handcrafted products from international brands such as Archipelago, Balvenie, Hendrick’s, Milagro and Reyka, and where your ears are treated to live jazz every Saturday night.
The halibut is another Favourite the service and recommendation is excellent.
Good selection of local fusion Italian food. The Chilli crab pasta is a must try.
Very taste food with large portion sizes. Beautiful decor and really good service shown by the staff at the restaurant. Comfortable setting at Raffles Hotel is a plus.
Nice atmosphere, good service, excellent food. Try the paper wrapped halibut!
The Halia at Raffles is probably our favourite restaurant in Singapore having visited there on some 5 occasions during our last two visits to Singapore. This time, a small family group of 3 visited for lunch and dinner and once again were not to be disappointed. The venue is delightful, Rafflesque with a lovely round old wooden table centrepiece. The staff are without fail the best, cheerful, helpful and knowledgeable providing excellent service throughout. But it is of course the food which is the highlight of the place. A menu to surely suit all tastes and food of the highest quality, presentation and taste. The Halia will always be the first, and last place for us to dine on any future visits to Singapore. A big thank you to all concerned.
Celebrated Mothers' Day here. Very nice ambience, not overcrowded or overloud. Food quality can be hit & miss. My chili crab spaghettini was filling and delicious, my mum liked her truffle mushroom toast, and those who ordered the cottage pie thought it was so-so. My cousin felt that the pork burger has a weird gasoline taste, and my aunt was disappointed with her corned beef hash. I wouldn't recommend the dessert. The ginger nougat and chocolate parfait were nothing to write home about, and the sticky toffee date pudding had the driest toughest texture you can ever imagine (obviously over-microwaved). Service by the industrious and cheerful waitress made up for everything- she was a gem!
This restaurant is a lovely find, great location (although Raffles hotel generally is a disappointment), cooking honest and really high quality food at very reasonable pricing. I would never have picked it as a place to eat, but it came so highly recommended by friends that I couldn't not give it a try. I'd highly recommend it to anyone - despite its modest décor, this is surely one of the best restaurants in Singapore! Staff were a delight, really knowledgeable and took a genuine interest in every customer. Overall, somewhere not to be missed!
amazing start of the year with my date. the food was excellent as so were the service. would definitely head there again. it was a gastronomic food experience paired with excellent service ( from Fir). we had the chicken salad with ginger dressing which was simply refreshing, and it opens and prepares our palate for the main course. the Chef's Soup of pumpkin and ginger carrot was also really good! in a nut shell, i'll definitely recommend and visit Halia restaurant again. :)
Restaurant was a bit crowded during lunch, so it was a bit hard to get the attention of the waiter/waitresses. We had the halibut and the pork loin during lunch, the halibut was really good, with my entertainer 1for1, it was worth the money, though I wasn't sure if I would order it without that. Ambience was so-so with many kids with families making quite some noise. All in, the food's good, so if you are after good food you should come here.
Great ambience in a historical context. Food was excellent - the service was also great, but rushing it. We were served our mains before we had finished our starters. It can give the impression that turn around tables is more important than giving full attention to the current diners. Next time I will ask the staff not to rush - because yes, there will deficiently be a second visit. Hoping for a perfect experience then! Truth be told this was also a perfect experience at The Raffles Hotel, thanks to the live band at The Long Bar. Amazing!!
