When you go out for dinner, you want to go somewhere cool. Somewhere that’s not all over everyone else’s Instas. Somewhere that will make you go “wow” afterwards. That’s why we’ve put together this list of unique restaurants in Singapore, so you can have a great night and make all your followers jealous.


This venue has just seven tables, making it super intimate. With its stripped back interiors, white table cloths, and refined style, it’s a great place to relax and have a good time. They are one of just 39 restaurants in Singapore to have a Michelin star, making this a pretty special place to head to. Their menu has delicious treats like Japanese mackerel, Wagyu onglet, and foie gras, all designed to make your tastebuds tingle.


Another restaurant to gain an elusive Michelin star, Jaan is located in the stunning Swissotel in the Equinox Complex. With just 40 seats, it's also an intimate space, with super attentive staff tending on your every whim. Their food consists of classic British dishes, that Devon-born exec chef, Kirk Westway has put his own twist on. With its unusual food, gorgeous views, and perfect location, it’s one of the most unique restaurants in Singapore.

Sushi Kimura

Transport yourself to Japan with this incredible sushi restaurant. Invoking the traditions of old Japan, it’s an intimate space where you can watch the talented sushi chefs work their magic at the counter. Everything in the restaurant, from the fabric dividers at the door, to the wooden countertops come from Japan, and the quality of the food reflect the attention to detail. There are no menus here, you simply eat what the chef prepares, in true omakase style, making this one of the most unique restaurants in Singapore as no one else will ever eat the same menu as you.

Venue by Sebastian

If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t share food, this might not be the venue for you. The concept here is food to share, with dishes being ordered for the full table, making it a great place to head with a group. With its white walls, beautiful lighting, and cool colour scheme, it has a truly distinctive look. The food is European with Asian influences, and you’ll find dishes like grilled octopus with white bean puree, capers, and burnt butter alongside a more classic ribeye with salsa verde. Get your table booked, you’re in for a treat.

Potato Head

Truly one of the most unique restaurants in Singapore, Potato Head is actually made up of various bars, eateries, and spaces. Situated in a gorgeous heritage building in Chinatown, there are four stories to explore inside Potato Head. We recommend heading to Three Buns Quayside, their own take on a neighbourhood burger joint. It’s also a collaborative artistic space so you can feel cultured as you chow down on some lovely burgers.
