Ban Heng @ Orchard Central
Ideal for a simple lunch or dinner reception, this rooftop venue offers Teochew and Cantonese cuisines, which will go down well with the more traditional family members who have fussier palates. Coupled with attractively priced packages and its romantic settings, we can see how it’s a hit with most couples.

Violet Oon Singapore
Famous for its Peranakan food and local fare, the iconic Singaporean establishment, formerly Violet Oon’s Kitchen, unveils a sleek, elegant venue concept that’s richly decorated with vibrant hues and traditional patterns. Featuring a culinary show kitchen which doubles as a private dining space for up to 12, the space is lovely for intimate receptions or for rehearsal dinners. The best part? Violet Oon Singapore now offers a wider repertoire of Singaporean dishes in place of its Western dishes, which will no longer be on the menu. Her popular Nonya dishes and other local favourites will remain.

The venue, which comprises the Main Dining Hall, Private Dining Room, Chinese Tapas Bar and Private Rooftop bar, serves traditional Cantonese cuisine, Chinese tapas and a wide range of cocktails, whiskeys and wines that’ll take you from lunch or dinner, to post-party drinks easily.
