TL;DR – Bound to impress clients and your boss.
Being a food paradise, a great way to strengthen business ties in Singapore is over a good meal and drinks. So, if you’re looking for a restaurant with amazing dishes and impeccable service to take your clients, boss or colleagues to, here are my favourite restaurants for business dinners!
1. Neon Pigeon
When you’re out to impress clients, ambience is key. A modern take on Japanese restaurants with an underground urban vibe, Neon Pigeon is all about good vibes and its lively atmosphere. Serving Japanese izakaya with an edgy twist, you must try their refreshingly addictive Tuna Crudo with Picked Apple and Miso dip and Curry chips in Tokyo Hummus.
For mains, I highly recommend the unique Chicken Liver Mousse with Yuzu Kosho Marmalade or the super tender Steamed Snapper with Ginger-tomato broth. If you’re up for some alcohol, then go for their signature Throw a Kyoho Fizz, which is a refreshing concoction of vodka with cucumber.

Dubbed as one of the best Japanese Restaurants in Singapore, Kuro Izakaya is a gastro bar with ultra-modern interiors that exudes posh and class.

The dishes are made with garden-fresh ingredients and even the wines from their exquisite collection are naturally fermented from the vineyard. We recommend the Toasted Ciabatta with Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs, which are super creamy and moist, and the ODP Pancakes with a decadent Black Berry and Chocolate sauce!
