More about Yan, Singapore

So often Cantonese food is run-of-the-mill and not worth getting excited about. The Cantonese food at Yàn, however, is a treasure. This elegant restaurant at the National Gallery Singapore abides by the disciplines of the Cantonese kitchen to ensure every plate of food is alive with flavour and marvellously presented as though it were art. To be found on St Andrews Road, this City Hall restaurant is warm and inviting, resembling a modern and intimate Chinese dining room that is perfect for convivial gatherings.

The menu at Yàn puts great emphasis on fresh flavours and leader of the kitchen Chan knows how to handle the wok just right. Diners of Singapore and City Hall flock here to enjoy lunch, set, and Dim Sum menus, yet the a la carte is where Yàn really shows off. Chef’s recommendations include stewed king prawns with a shark cartilage broth, sauteed beef tenderloin cubes with asparagus and white pepper sauce, as well as the signature crispy roast suckling pig, served three ways.

Very nice ambience especially the private little covered booths that line each side of the restaurant. The large private room is rather stark and not as beautiful and not private at all but still charged as a private room with minimum spend. Doesn't make sense. Seems to have a lot of regulars. Portions were quite small, not really enough for 4. Menu not much choice and not transparent. Mostly live seafood at market prices. Most of it was served in individual portions. Presentation of the shared portions were just thrown together on the plate. Beef cubes were over tenderised and had a strange texture. Peking duck skin not very cripsy. Duck meat 2nd course just served as is slightly dry. Did not acknowledge wedding anniversary even though stated on reservation.

Was there for lunch. Not a very big restaurant but loved the ambience and decor . Decent array of dishes and especially liked the hot and sour soup served in a coconut. Food quality was of a high standard. Pity that service leaves little to be desired. No greeting on arrival nor thank you/good-bye even from the restaurant manager, who looked quite frazzled. Difficult to get attention for service. The brusque service attitude makes you feel that you're in a HK tea house rather than a quality restaurant. Hope to see an improvement in my next visit.

We enjoyed our dinner at Yan very much. Food was delicious, ambience was great. However the air-conditioning was a bit too cold for our comfort & food got cold really quickly.

The Restaurant is located in a nice location. However the food is mediocre and service lackluster. Not much smiles from the service staff and when we request for more tea or water. Food seemed like it was put together haphazardly. Do not be fooled by the cover photo of the yusheng. The yusheng tho tasty, presentation looks like what I can get at a tze char store. Definitely won’t be returning. There’re other places with better food and service.

Good food and excelletnt service from the staff. Peking duck is great. Recommended dishes by the manger did not disappoint too. Would be perfect if they have something extra for the birthday girl/boy as we are celebrating a birthday there.

Good food nice ambience, attentive staff and prompt services . I noticed the Peking duck dish was nicely presented to the diners by service staff without having them to do on their own.Good Service indeed.
