Indonesian restaurants are a dime a dozen in Singapore, but few places offer a rijsttafel feast like the one you’ll find at The Rice Table on Orchard Road. Invented by the Dutch during the colonial era, rijsttafel (“rice table”) comprises a wonderful spread of Indonesian side dishes served at a single setting, showcasing the abundance of flavours, colours and textures of the cuisine.
The rijsttafel at The Rice Table is available as a buffet, giving you ample time to savour every single dish laid out in front of you. Try the ayam goreng (dory fillets coated in batter, deep-fried and topped with sweet and sour sauce), tahu kuning (deep-fried golden coin egg tofu served in a fragrant turmeric curry sauce) and sambal belacan (water spinach stir-fried in fiery dried shrimp paste) – among the best-loved items here that will have you reaching for seconds. The perfect place for a big, communal meal with family or friends with its traditional decor, warm ambience and great value all-you-can-eat options, The Rice Table draws in diners from all over Singapore to its central location in Orchard. The restaurant is easily accessible by foot from Orchard MRT station and we highly recommend that you reserve a table in advance
