Further Information

What makes a Chinese restaurant great is when it brings together authentic, fine food and a setting to match. This, we are happy to report, is exactly what to expect from VLV Singapore. It’s a world-class culinary experience, and the restaurant itself is elegant. Imagine luxury fabrics, marble, neutral tones and an ambience that instantly soothes. It’s contemporary Chinese decor summed up. You can find this gem of Singapore at Clarke Quay – excellently located in the exciting hub below River Valley Road – where views of the river and some stunning architecture await.

Aside from an excellent dim sum champagne brunch menu, the main restaurant menu offers refined Chinese flavours. There is fresh seafood, oven baked VLV peking duck, prime meat dishes as well as plenty more besides. A highlight for us would have to be the honey glazed foie gras, served with baby leek, avocado and a black sesame pancake. You simply have to try VLV Singapore, so head down to Clarke Quay now.

awesome! But would be good for Quandoo to list out if there's items that can be pre-ordered. For example the "beggar chicken" can't be ordered there, but has to be pre-ordered. I didn't know until I tried ordering.

Very friendly staffs, patient with our queries and most of their recommendations were on point. They were also very accomodating, helping us with our order from the buffet stations. Food was very decent with my friend loving the very authentic pork in vinegar sauce. Portion control was good, which helped us minimised food wastage. A definate recommendations to friends. It is too bad the venue require to go up a flight of steps (friendly staff helped my friend with her baby stuff), otherwise it will be a solid recommendation for old folks.

We had a wonderful evening. We had a round table for 5 pax and it was still workable to talk. The food was very tasty and looked awsome. The staff is very friendly and did act perfect as my tea cup slipped and the tea pured down to the floor. Also the consultation on the wine was good. The interior of the downstairs lounge and upstairs restaurant is awsome. A great place for a special dinner. I hope this place keeps attracting the crowd as it is spacious and wonderful ambiance.

Quality and taste of the food was generally good, but still fall behind the likes of Imperial Treasure (MBS), Tung Lok Signatures or Lei Gardens. The kurobuta char siew, anchovy kailan, fish maw shark cartilage soup and Australian lobster with steam egg-white were good. But the truffle duck was a total failure and should be taken off the menu as the duck was limp, just salty with the slightest hint of duck flavour being overpowered by the black truffle. It tasted like the truffle was the main and the duck was the garnish although it was meant to be otherwise. Main draw is its nightclub-like ambience which provides for a very comfortable seating and more conducive dining and winng experience, making one wants to sit there longer aftet dinner to continue chatting over a few bottles of wine. One complaint is that the music during dinner can be a bit too loud for good conversation.

After dining there a few times, I must say THIS particular experience just BREAK it. I will NOT step into VLV again... (unless absolutely necessary). The Manager on duty, the bold head Chinese man with spectacle, just ruined our experience and our mood. Been there for lunch 3 times and the brunch twice... it was pretty quiet that Sunday when we were there, no sign of overbooking ... but the manager was giving my bro and me a terrible reaction when we requested for more alcohol. He was rude,undermining and not appreciative of our business . Basically, discriminating ! And def not polite ... as though we 'owe' him and begging for another pour of our free glow alcohol. Untactful and undeserving Always believe the waiters and managers make or break a restaurant reputation. VLV as a nice restaurant with decent food, it is unfortunate that they employ such untactful idiots as their manager who score so low in Customer's satisfaction

The environment is too dim. Since the dishes are so exclusive, I think the served personnel who is attending to the table should explain more about the dishes. So far only one waiter attend to my table explain well, the rest was not. Hope VLV can improve this aspect. If possible can explain in both English and Mandarin would be good.

We had the s$68++ brunch buffet which was a good way to sample their menu. Some dishes were hits while some were misses. Hits: Pork belly, pig trotter with vinegar, egg puffs, boat style congee, all vegetable dishes, siew mai, duck, beef hor fun, fried radish cake. Misses: the soups, prawn dumpling, soft shell crab, steamed rice roll, curry fish ball were just too average and did not stand out. Overall good first time experience.

Nice food, good service and great ambiance. My guests and I had a great time at this restaurant. Some of the dishes are truly unique. For first time diners, I strongly suggest you take the recommendations from the captain. We will definitely return.

VLV offered some interesting items that are not found in the usual dim sum restaurants. We enjoyed the roast pork belly, assorted deluxe platter, carrot cake and lobster dumplings. Service was good and attentive while the ambience was chill and relaxing. A great place to have lunch.

There was a strand of hair in one of the plates of wild nepalese rice that came with the beggar chicken. We complained to one of the waiting staff, his exact words were "It will happen because it is wild rice". WHAT?? As for the price, a bit high for the quality and portion of the food.

Nice ambience and great food. Good for gatherings. Beggar chicken is a must try, is really good. Had roast pork as an appetizer, it was good! As for dessert, compared to the recommended oh nee, I prefer the all time fav mango pomelo.

Had a la carte dim sum lunch with 6 people. Service was attentive. Good quality dim sum but no dishes really stood out compared to other restaurants. Beggar chicken was very tasty. Overall, good food but overpriced.

Food was really good as always, love the different takes on traditional food, but service has always been a little lacking - not that they were no good, just not enough attention or a tad slow, maybe from being understaffed

They did not give me the WoW factor, couldn't find the justification for the gold award. Put it ordinary and the signature Beggar Chicken was not the usual salted chicken that I knew but it was just a herbal chicken wrapped by clay. Will be hard for us to return.

The decorations are cool and ambience was fantastic. Food quality was very good... the roast pork was extremely delicious. However I still prefer the traditional peking duck to their signature VLV Peking duck.

Romantic and posh restaurant at 2nd level. Food served are delicious but smaller portion. Beggar chicken without doubt is one of the best main dish. Will try their dimsum lunch buffet one day.

The price tag goes for the place and food presentation... but not for the food quality ... its pretty average. The Signature Disk - Peking Duck.. 1st Serviing is fine. 2nd serving .. The dice duck meat served on cone. The amount of meat used is probably 15% only .. Where is the rest of the duck meat ? S$ 55/- for half a duck is already very pricey...to shortchange on the duck meat on the 2nd serving is really bad taste. For the same amount of money, .. S$ 55/- I get a whole duck and 3 servings in a restaurant managed by a Celebrity Chef !! The whole duck is used up .. even the bones on the 3rd dish .. Duck+ Salted Vege Soup !!

Authentic, solid Chinese cooking via modern western presentations. Opulent furnishings but night-club style setting not entirely cohesive to the Chinese dining experience. Good food nevertheless.

Disappointed after knowing that the beggar chicken was not available at 1pm which is the reason I went vlv . Information needed for limited food.
