About The Rice Table

Singapore is full of great Indonesian restaurants, but The Rice Table is a name that stands out from the rest. At this restaurant on Orchard Road, you can experience the tradition of rijsttafel, a colonial feast invented by the Dutch consisting of many Indonesian side dishes served in small portions and accompanied by rice. To guarantee a table at this Orchard gem, booking ahead is definitely recommended!

Further Information

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

My date was running late and the staff kindly accommodated my request to move our reservation to a later time. Enjoyed the timely and attentive service. Overall food quality unfortunately has gone down a bit since my last visit a few years ago (most notably the over-fried dory fish) but thankfully my favourite Tahu Telor is still satisfying.

The Rice table is a restaurant we visit already for more than 15 years. We keep coming back on a regular basis, when we lived in Singapore as well as now, after having returned to our home country, when visiting Singapore. We always likes the diversity, variety and quality of all the dishes of the rice table. There is in addition a very nice balance between price and quality. We recommend this restaurant for lunch as well as dinner. For us it is a perfect location when inviting friends or colleagues. Suggestion : When the guests have arrived it would be nice to welcome the guests first at the table, ask for drinks and then start serving the rice table dishes. But having said so, we will be back next time we are visiting Singapore !

I have been a fan of Rice Table for years and the quality is generally consistent. The choice and selections are usually quite complete and there is lots to eat. We almost always replenish every dish, many more than 2 or 3 times. Always excellent are the satay, tahu telor and beef rendang. However this last time the beef was not as tender as usual and the eggplant could have been cooked a little longer. Appreciate that the shrimps they use are not of the frozen variety like most buffets, well at least not on this visit. WE always end up rolling out of the restaurant after the meal and this time was no different. Always a satisfying experience.

My one and only complain is that they should cut down on the fat in beef rendang. That being said, I enjoyed my time spent at this restaurant. I found the concept of this restaurant to be interesting and its food extremely mouth watering. I found the service there good as well. Waiters and waitresses were observant and took the initiative to offer me more rice when my plates were clean. Overall I would recommed this restaurant to my family and friends!

Misconceptions about the cuisine being the equivalent of Nasi Padang will make the cost seem insensible. In reality the cuisine is authentic Javanese, with nuanced differences in saltiness, sweetness etc Flavours are complex and such a treat. Never a dull moment with the festive nature of dinner service with a plethora of dishes, that initially seem daunting. My personal favourites are the satay and tauhu goreng.

1) I find the food to be a bit too salty for me. 2) The portion of lady fingers was way too small. There were 3 of us eating and only 3 small pieces (parts of a whole!) were given in each serving. We were not allowed to place more than one order of the same item each time, and thus had to wait for the waitress to bring the next plate of 3 small pieces after we finish each plate. It sounded quite ridiculous and embarrassing for me as the host of the meal!

Most of the food was tasty (except for the okra which was very old and the under-cooked brinjal) and remained warm on the table. We were pleasantly surprised when the wait-staff obliged us by replenishing our dishes (at our request). However, it would have been better if the dishes could've been identified (or named) when served. The restaurant is quite small and cozy, but we were seated near a fairly large group of loud (and noisy) diners, so it was quite difficult to hear ourselves, across the table.
