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

Reviews of good food at The Halia at Singapore Botanic Gardens

Great company!

Pretty good food coupled with a nice ambience.

Food is towards the costlier side but it sure wouldn’t hurt to pay a little more for greatness, right?😉

Pain perdu ($16)-cinnamony, exterior is crusty but inside is incredibly pudding like and moist. Did not expect to get such good french toast here 4.75/5

Located in the botanic garden, took over 15 minutes to reach this place from the mrt station. Just like what you'll expect from a cafe in botanic garden, forest-y kinda view, outdoor seatings.

Paper baked halibut ($33)-fresh fish, nice aiol & broth, but from such price, thought it could have been better 4/5

Goji berry infusion ($8)-never actually try goji berries before. The drink is servrf with the actual berries. Tbh the berries themselves are already weak in flavor. The infused water is pretty bland.

Halia – Malay for ginger – is located in the one-hectare Ginger Garden of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The use of ginger is distinctly found in their dishes. Paperbag oven-baked halibut fillet ($33) - with soy and ginger broth, sesame Japanese rice, wakame, wasabi aioli, ginger flower sambal. The fish was superb. Smooth, creamy and very fresh. The brilliant mix of miron sake with the ginger broth was magnificent. The broth went very well with the rice. Halia's Singapore style chilli crab spaghettini ($26) - in spicy, sweet and tangy sauce. It came with generous chunks of crab in my favourite chilli crab sauce. It was very palatable and tasty. Die die must have chocolate ($10) - chocolate element and raspberry. The chocolate pieces were perfect and not overly sweet, while the raspberry added a nice tang to the dish.

Very little says comfort like a good gratin. Even better if it's laden with chicken 😋

This Singapore Botanic Gardens stalwart suited for special occasions has recently been Halal certified! Dine on smart Asian-inspired European plates in the chic resort setting — the light-filled room is perfect for celebratory brunches (sit alfresco if it's cool enough) but come dinner time, the ambience turns romantic and screams "date night". Halia's Singapore-Style Chilli Crab Spaghettini ($26) is a long-time favourite, thanks the balance of sweet, spicy and tangy; while the Paperbag Oven-Baked Halibut Fillet ($33) sees perfectly cooked fish slicked in a umami-packed soy and ginger broth, served with rice. For something lighter, consider the Lemongrass & Ginger Prawn Salad ($16). The base of glass noodles makes it substiantial enough for a light meal, while the ginger flower dressing keeps it fresh. Drinks-wise, Halia boasts a menu of comprehensive infusions, many with purported health benefits. Sip on their Cumin, Ginger, Cinnamon 'CGC' ($7) at the end of the meal — the honey-sweetened spice house brew is a natural digestif and also regulates blood sugar.

Good for those who like fish and creamy pasta!

The Halia has recently attained halal certification and launched a new menu! Head down to try the other unique Asian-European dishes right in the heart of the Botanic Gardens! :)

While they don't serve alcohol now, they have crafted interesting drinks for guests to enjoy. Cucumber & Basil ($8 per glass) here make use of Tulsi tea, Japanese cucumber & house-made basil infusion.

Surrounded by lush foliage, The Halia provides a great view of Ginger Garden, Singapore Botanic Gardens which it's named after.

Here you'll be able to try several dishes that include ginger such as Lemongrass & Ginger Prawn Salad. Garden-fresh vegetable, succulent prawns, fresh mango with tomato salsa and abundance of glass noodles, this refreshing dish uses ginger flower dressing!

Featured above is @TheHalia's Singaporean-Style Chili Crab Spaghettini that would be paired along with a glass of Chilled Lemongrass & Ginger-Infused Drink ($30/Heritage Set).
👉🏻& If you swipe for more photos, you'd be able to witness my dreamy experience dining here. Their Lemongrass & Ginger Prawn Salad ($19) was one of the best I've ever had in awhile I swear. The stars of the dish went so well along with the fresh mangoes & glass noodles in the most appetite-whetting garden-made ginger-flower dressing. It's my first time here you see, & I never knew I'd fall for halia (aka ginger) so much.

Sorry I wasn't my best self that day but it's only through moments like these then I get constantly reminded on how patient and forgiving you are. ❤

If feasting with your eyes is as important as feasting itself, then this dish will not disappoint! The bright & fresh flavours combined with the rich avocado goes well with the cornbread. We added the wagyu for an additional $3 which turn out to be a good idea!

After ordering a couple of dishes to share at Halia, we all concluded that the Singapore-Style Chili Crab Spaghettini was a clear winner and it was backed up by Burpple's recommendation on the app. The pasta was well cooked and binded very well with crab meat drenched in the spicy, sweet & tangy sauce. Yum yum!

One of my favourite dishes of the day at Halia - The pasta "risotto" doesn't use the traditional risotto rice, but pasta instead. The lovely creamy sauce coated each individual grain and the lovely smoky salmon taste came through with each bite. Stirring the perfectly poached sous vide egg into the dish gave it that rich finish that left me wanting much much more!
