Singapore and Hong Kong are two of the great cities of Asia, and one of the biggest draws that they share is their diversity of restaurants and the high standard of cooking found in them. In Singapore’s Geylang district, there is a restaurant that brings the two together, with spectacular results. Tonny Restaurant is the brainchild of Tonny, the chef, who brings 30 years of experience in the kitchens of Hong Kong to bear on classics Chinese dishes. Pay him – and them – a visit on 10 Lor 3 Geylang to try out some of the best Cantonese dishes in Singapore.
There are plenty of things that unite Hong Kong and Singapore, and a predilection for unregulated free market economics, typhoons and skyscrapers are really only the tip of the iceberg. Both are at the forefront of the Asian culinary wave, bringing the most modern and innovative techniques and practices to bear on traditional recipes. One place providing the quintessential Hong Kong Chinese experience in Singapore is Tonny Restaurant, where they offer a clash of classic and contemporary Cantonese dishes for your delectation. Swing by 10 Lor Geylang 3 and find out what they have in store for you.
The menu is packed with Chinese favourites, so let us talk you through a few of them. Shark’s Fin Soup to start, of course, as any self-respecting Chinese animal rights enthusiast knows, followed by something truly special to follow. We’d go for the braised sea cucumber, the crocodile in Abalone sauce, the pork trotter in red bean curd or, at a push, the goose web with mushroom. We can only give you a small sample of the menu, however. To try it all, book a table at Tonny Restaurant in Geylang for one of the best Hong Kong-style Chinese restaurants in Singapore.
I could say this restaurant Chef is very Creative and the menu is very different from many restaurants I have patronise. Waiting time for food if can expedite will be excellent 😊
Very good food!! Yummy! One side back is the restaurant design is an "enclosed" space so when one speaks loudly it makes it very uncomfortable for other people. The tables on the entrance area might be better. The service was good despite the slowness in serving (but this is something which we can accept as we need to wait for good food). Thank you for the great food!
Chef Tonny is really talented, creative and humble. More often in the kitchen cooking away, speak to Christine to organise. Call a few days ahead and let Tonny do some of his new creations, you won't be disappointed!
The service was great. Food was really good. It is a good place to be. I would like to come back again. Also I will bring my friends along.
Ordered 6 dishes for a group of ten. The pace of the food being served was irregular and long intervals in between. By the time the last dish was served, most of us had finished up our individual rice serving. Granted I did not expedite this issue during our meal, the restaurant was not even at 1/2 capacity. Food wise was good standard but prices are above average "cze char restaurant" pricing. Menus quoted prices only for small portions, and it was very tedious to check for large portion prices for the various dishes I enquired.
Always enjoyable at Tonny Restaurant.... creative dishes, great service... and this time round, we hosted some friends who loved the food, and said they'd be back soon!
The food here is excellent. You've got to try the Crispy Yam w/truffle oil. The yam is sliced into fine shreds and deeply fried till crisp. Truffle oil is added. It is stacked like a Christmas tree, garnished with sesame seeds and spring onions.
Didn't make it for the lunch. I appreciate the staff calling me after I have made the reservation to let me know that only set meal was available instead of their usual menu. Looking forward to going there next time.
Very nice food. Staffs were very friendly and attentive. Though location was not ideal for tourists, it is really worthwhile visiting there. Pork barbecue, deep fried garlic pork, fish cake shall be some of recommended food. Price? Truly local proce:)
Very nice and value for money. Will return to taste other dishes. The Patin fish is remarkable. crocodile palm is uniquely stewed like abalone. Don't miss it!
