Singapore’s Buona Vista is famous for being the site of one-north, a vital research and development hub whose centres are set amongst gorgeous hilly parkland. Right at the heart of one-north, along Slim Barracks Rise, is the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Alumni Club, which has been blessed by the presence of Yunnan Garden Restaurant since the 1970s. Here, alumni and the public alike can enjoy a la carte dining and private functions in spacious ballrooms with delicious Chinese dishes created by one of the finest Chinese restaurants in the city.
Singapore’s famed Yunnan Garden Restaurant began life in the 1970s as a humble cafeteria keeping NTU students and faculty members stocked with affordable Chinese food. Fortuitously located next to the university’s Yunnan Garden, the cafeteria adopted its current name and began to grow. After a phase in the 1980s where Yunnan Garden Restaurant focuses on Chinese seafood, this famous eatery and institution is now a mature restaurant offering all manner of Chinese regional specialties. Boasting spacious premises in the NTU Alumni Club along Slim Barracks Rise in the one-north complex, Yunnan doubles as both an informal dining option and a popular function and private party venue.
Seafood still plays a major role in Yunnan Garden Restaurant’s a la carte menu. Pick up a some lobster for a luxuriant starter before attacking some braised shark’s fin, abalone, sea cucumber, scallops or prawns. There are plenty of meat and poultry options at NTU Alumni Club’s in-house restaurant, and the clay pot options are ever popular, stewing bean curd and vermicelli with a range of flavourful ingredients. With an incredible selection and a solid history behind it, it’s worth braving the hike up Slim Barracks Rise to one of the preeminent Chinese restaurants in one-north, if not all of Singapore.
Good service good food and affordable price for Chinese cuisine. Repeated visit. Must try their peking duck! Its value for money and yummy. Recommended to all.
The service was good and the food was serve up fast. The experience of using online reservations was convenient and effective. Revived confirmation from restaurant immediately on the same day.
Attentive service! Yummu food. Suitable for big group and family gathering! Must try their Peking duck! Value for money n super yummy. If you have a big appetite, go for dessert. The mango pomelo sago is pretty good
We had steamed cod with garlic (excellent), coffee pork ribs (very good), quick boiled prawns (good) and crab-meat asparagus (very good). Nice atmosphere and good service.
Excellent Peking Duck and coffee pork ribs. The cod fish was good but over fried. I prefer cod fish to be fried lightly. The sambal lady's fingers were good.
The food and service are nice as usual. Not much choice for wine though. Hope to have those dishes from the set menu a la carta.
Ambience was good. Ample parking lots. Food wasnt that good and the variety was quite limited. Service was very very slow, considering that we were the only diners at that time. Price reasonable.
The food is not oily n fresh. Just nice for us.
