6 Group-friendly Dining Spots In Singapore

The best meals are often shared with friends and family. After all, there’s truly nothing better than catching up over a feast!

Whether it’s a social get-together or a family reunion, these restaurants are proven to be a great fit for communal dining. Just like booking a RydeXL, you won’t need to fret about accommodating to your entire group. At these six spots, you won’t need to fret about making a reservation in advance as you know they’ll be able to accommodate your entire group without a hassle.

South Union Park

For A Delightful Brunch 

A walk away from Kembangan MRT is South Union Park, a bistro that’s well-known for crafting their own ingredients (down to the herbs!) from scratch. Their brunch offerings including the
Croque Madame ($21) are a hit with their patrons—just look at that delicious tomato hollandaise sauce running over the sunny side-up that’s served atop two thick brioche toasts with ham and cheese sandwiched in between. This comes with a side of crispy fries and fresh salad that’s doused with balsamic vinaigrette. We wouldn’t be surprised if everyone at the table ordered this same dish…

Taikoo Lane Hotpot

For A Comforting Hotpot

Sharing a meal with your loved ones over a warm and comforting hotpot never gets old! If you’re looking for a restaurant that showcases the best of both Cantonese and Sichuan broths, then Taikoo Lane Hotpot at Chinatown Point is just the place for you.

When you’re there, you’ll have to try the Chengdu Green Pepper Soup ($7.90) and the Collagen Nourishing Pork Bone Soup (6.50) as these broths complement each other pretty well. Opt for ingredients like the Premium Pork Belly ($7.40), Handmade Prawn Paste ($7.40), Fish Balls ($3.90), Chinese Cabbage ($2.90), among many others, and your family will be in for a spread.

LKF Taproom

For An All-night Tipple 

LKF Taproom brings you and your entourage bar bites and booze in abundance, with a relaxing ambience to boot. This is the ideal location for a social gathering with your mates as their extensive selection of over 40 craft beers (prices vary) will certainly pave the way for an all-night tipple—choose from all sorts of bottles including the malty Jade Emperor IPA which features bolts of citrus and floral notes, and the Thunder God Ale that’s packed with tropical hop notes. 

Pair your cold beer with their insanely addictive Asian Fusion dishes such as the Crispy Enoki Mushrooms ($10) and Har Cheong Wings ($12) sprinkled with sweet prune powder and you’re all set for the night.


For Premium Steak & Sharing Plates

Specialising in unusual cuts of beef and other meats, Meadesmoore is a modern steakhouse that sources only the best slabs from award-winning premium small producers. Nestled at the heart of Telok Ayer and helmed by Executive Chef Victor Loy, their steaks such as the Full Blood Wagyu MS ⅞ Rib Cap ($148) are charcoal-grilled to perfection.

To complete your meal, pair the steak with sharing plates such as the classic Burrata ($22) and sides like the mouth-watering Maitake Mushroom ($18). And, of course, you’ve got to end the meal on a sweet note with their decadent Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate ($16) dessert. These curated dishes are sure to tantalise the taste buds of everyone at the table!

The Communal Place

For Contemporary Western Fusion Dishes 

As their name suggests, The Communal Place is a bistro cafe which sees the importance of connecting with your loved ones whilst sharing a scrumptious meal together—in order to accommodate this, they have made it so that there are long tables throughout their spacious establishment. Not to mention, a contemporary Western Fusion menu that truly has something for everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you’re there for a leisurely brunch, a quick catch-up or an extended family gathering, they’ll cater to you all the same.

If you’re there for the sole purpose of having dessert with friends, you absolutely have to try their TCP Pancake ($17), an incredibly thick and fluffy two-piece pancake dish that comes with fresh berries, crumble, and sweet maple syrup. Not enough to sate your sweet tooth? Add on Ice Cream ($6)

Lai Lai Taiwan Casual Dining

For Taiwanese Comfort Food

Specialising in Taiwanese cuisine, Lai Lai serves up comfort food for the whole family. Their restaurant is best known for their main dishes including the Braised Pork Rice ($8.90), the Beef Noodles ($13.90), the 3 Cup Chicken ($13.90), and the Pig Intestine Vermicelli ($10.90). Pair any one of these with their signature Bubble Tea offerings and you’re in for a simple, fuss-free, and affordable meal with your parents and siblings!

The way we see it, eating is not just about sustenance. The enjoyment that comes from a good meal can certainly be doubled when shared with friends and family; this is why we felt it was essential to narrow down some group-friendly dining spots for when the occasion calls for it.
