The Halia at Singapore Botanic Gardens

495 Wishlisted
Halia – Malay for ginger – is located in the one-hectare Ginger Garden of the Singapore Botanic Gardens where over 250 species of gingers with their stunning foliage and colourful flowers thrive. The construction of Halia was carried out simultaneously with the development of the Ginger Garden in year 2000. Careful consideration was given to the special park setting, such that architecture conformed to the contours of the land, the dignity of mature trees and the preservation of heritage. In 2001, the Halia was officially opened. The result is an unobtrusive dining room with full height glass windows, beckoning the greenery indoors, and allowing guests to dine in the Garden whilst still comfortably ensconced in cool surroundings. Decades-old majestic palm trees stand like sentries, guardian-witness to the earthy beauty that is the Singapore Botanic Gardens. *Halal-certified

Pretty presentation and refreshing taste. Garden tea with lychee juice, raspberries and thyme infusion ($8). Also really liked their take on local favorite kaya and toast. The honey butter was so good! They also had pineapple ginger jam which was good as well. Will be back!

Set amidst the Ginger Garden , this is an infusion of cumin and cinnamon water , with self grated fresh ginger tumbshoot & honey

Set in the midst of lush greenery, this romantic hideaway is perfect for date night. Go for their Singapore-Style Chilli Crab Spaghettini ($26) that is sweet, spicy and tangy all at once with chunks of fresh crab meat. Another crowd favourite is the Paper Baked Halibut ($33) soaked in a soy and ginger broth and is served with sesame Japanese rice, wakame, wasabi aioli and ginger. Alternatively, have the hearty Ikana Fresh Greenshell Mussel ($25) with creamy sambal coconut broth that is great for dipping your sourdough bread into.

The tenderloin was very good. It was so soft and tender, you almost can’t feel the meat fibers at all. It was quite pricey ($62) but I think it’s very worth it. Also, you should try the drinks there. Interesting combinations that work well together.

(Apologies for the unfocused photo but didn’t really bother because of the poor lighting outdoors at night)

Still, would recommend to dine alfresco as it’s prettier outside :-) We made reservations in advance as the restaurant’s usually fully booked.

For starters, we had the soup of the day (tomato & basil) and truffle mash potato. Highlight of our meal would be the Halia’s Singapore-Style Chilli Crab Spaghettini. The portions of pasta and crab meat were so generous, and their rendition of the chilli crab sauce was amazing as well. Our other main was another popular dish, the Paperbag Oven-baked Halibut Fillet. Although it was good, the halibut fillet wasn’t as impressive. I personally enjoyed the soy and ginger broth. Finished off with the toffee pudding for desserts, which we read was a “must order”, but didn’t think it was anything to shout about.

Overall, thumbs up for the service and atmosphere. Would consider returning again!

Whipped potatoes with truffles. New item on their special menu. Definitely worth it!
