Overview of Temasek

Temasek offers widely-acclaimed Southeast Asian street food in a refined setting located on George Street. This simple abode of Singaporean and Malaysian food in The Roxy Arcade is famous for its sophisticated offerings for lunch and dinner. On top of their authentic delights are local favourites of Hainanese chicken, laksa, and desserts of shaved ice and sweets.

Temasek is a restaurant designed for group gatherings over food. It's ample space is maximized with long communal tables meant for sharing as well as circular tables for intimate family dining. They offer a variety of wines to complement meals and to complete celebrations among friends and loved ones. Set with contemporary furnishings, the restaurant is embellished with few accents normally affluent in Asian diners. There's a dragon décor here and there with Oriental portraits that enliven their beige walls. Nevertheless, it's ideal for functions.

    I've been coming here since I was a kid... and what can I say, I keep going back. I don't mind the crappy service from the wait staff because it's in the West and it's Asian... Not trying to stereotype but most Asian eateries have the worse service anyways. Food was great. Gotta love the boneless Hainan chicken and Singapore chilli prawns. Both are my favourites and served with a some chicken rice too... Best comfort food on a chilly winter's night.

    I went there for dinner with family, we have been there a number of times before but this time was probably the best in terms of food and service. The dishes that I liked most were the Lemongrass King Prawns and Garlic Eggplants, really yummy! Friendly and efficient service. We finished our meal within one hour. Overall a very pleasant experience.

    Restaurant isn't in an ideal location - in the middle of nowhere outside Westfield and in an alley way, but surprisingly really packed when we went for lunch on a weekend. Nothing spectacular about the interior of the restaurant and the service was just average. The noodle dishes we ordered were quite nice though and servings were good. Bit pricey for lunch in my opinion, but overall not too bad.

    Possibly one of the worst restaurants I've ever been to, horrible customer service - the staff were rude and created an unpleasant rushed atmosphere to dine in, not to mention the long wait time for our food (~ 30 mins). On top of this, the chicken was not even thoroughly cooked/raw! I would have accepted poor customer service if the food was actually good, however there seem to be no redeeming points for this place. My advice would be to go elsewhere.

    Been to Temasek many many times over the years, service and atmosphere hasn't changed at all. Always busy with customers whenever we come. (both lunch and dinner)

    Food wise, has always been to a great standard, especially the hainanese chicken. Love it always, if not the best I've had since Singapore. Many people might disagree, however, it is definitely my personal opinion.

    Service could be improved, however it is there. As for value, depending what you're getting, it's definitely worth your $$$$. If you want a decent meal for a decent price, come here. If not, there are a few Malaysian places in China town you can try.

    I have been to Temasek on many occasions because there food was excellent. But over the last 2 years, they have changed for the worst. Their prices have gone up while their quality of ingredients have gone down. The last time I went, I found that they are adding MSG to a lot of their dishes so you constantly feel thirsty for many hours after the meal. It is a shame because the food use to be very good quality.

    Great Laksa! Authentic feel in terms of ambience and service, so set realistic expectations from this perspective.

    I have been to Temasek on numerous occasions with my family to enjoy their famous hainanese chicken. The waiting staff consistently gives terrible service and never strives to make customers feel welcome. I read an old post where the restaurant defends this by saying it's hawker style food- 'get used to it'. But hey they aren't charging hawkers prices, in fact far from it so stop the attitude. Won't be long before another Malaysian restaurant figures this out, I won't be going back again.

    I love the hainese chicken here. It's so juicy & tender ~ been eating it for years. Other things such as hokkien mee, sambal kang kong, lemongrass pork are also nice. It's good to go with a group of ppl & share~

    Food is great. Couldn't fault it. Service is terrible. It took us 15 minutes to get the waiter's attention to take our order. We were crammed in like sardines and even asking to top up drinks was difficult. Overall you go for the food. It's not for a fine dining experience.
