Navigating Food in Pan Pacific Singapore: Which of Their Six Restaurants Is for You?

You may know this Raffles Boulevard hotel for its stellar international reputation and luxurious stays, but we’ve found that the restaurants here hold their own too. In collaboration with Pan Pacific Singapore, we show you around the six dining concepts under their roof, from a gourmet cafe with floating pods for seats to Southeast Asia’s longest bar (44 metres!). P.S You won’t have to check in to get to these.


Hai Tien Lo

This pristine Cantonese restaurant with emblematic large round tables and ancient Chinese folding screens is as traditional as it can get, and that’s why the food takes you by surprise with its much more modern identity. Expect Chinese cooking techniques elevated with Japanese and Western touches, hitting a nice balance for diners young or old. Bring the family!

 The Inaniwa Udon with King Prawn ($18) is a must-have from Hai Tien Lo’s repertoire. A beautiful, plump king prawn sits primly alongside a bed of smooth, hand-stretched udon, all submerged in a light,  broth made with aromatic Chinese wine.


 Take the escalator up the third floor to find Edge, the concept they like to call a food theatre. It’s named after the six (sometimes seven) bespoke buffet stations, manned by chefs who skillfully dole out delicious international delights right before your eyes — so mesmerising, it’s a performance of sorts.


 Look to the laksa line for a good show, as the chef cracks open fresh crayfish and tosses noodles in bubbling, bright orange laksa broth to produce your dinner. The soup counter is also a mandatory stop, where you can seek out eight types of nourishing double-boiled soups (on daily rotation during dinner) to soothe your tummy.


Nestled within a serene, verdant Japanese garden on the rooftop, Keyaki remains the hotel’s best-kept secret. While the delicately prepared sashimi, tempura and kaiseki (traditional Japanese multi-course meals) made to order in their main dining area would be perfect for intimate dates, Keyaki can also pivot diners to the teppanyaki and sushi counters for something a tad more casual.


Try the Hoshi Prix Fixe Set ($180)*, which brings great value with its variety of fresh sashimi, tempura, salad, rice, teppanyaki-style seafood and wagyu beef. Burppler Justin Teo even proclaims the wagyu beef the best he’s had. You’ll also get fresh imported fruit, such as the freshly sourced Japanese musk melon for dessert!


 Whether you prefer afternoon tea breaks or relaxing tipples, Atrium is the universal answer. Set sight on Southeast Asia’s longest bar here —the chic black bar counter stretches 44 metres long. Making a beautiful backdrop to the record-setting bar is the hotel’s famous floating pods, which you can opt to be seated at.


Atrium also has several tea options, perfect for when you feel like lounging over light bites with a few close friends. For a weekday pick-me-up, indulge in their chocolate-themed desserts or a three-tier tiffin carrier housing Peranakan delights ($42 per pax or $80 for two pax). Come weekends, the Nostalgic Weekend High Tea Buffet ($48 per pax) highlights a combination of modern English pastries and local Peranakan kueh, including a live station for Nyonya popiah. 

Pacific Marketplace

Even the gourmet cafe in the lobby is nothing short of spectacular. Pacific Marketplace serves up a smorgasbord of simple, decadent eats, from a signature Pandan Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake ($15) to hearty sandwiches and Asian eats, like the luscious Pacific Lobster Laksa (from $25). 


For group gatherings, check out the charcuterie counter for their artisanal handcrafted cold cuts and sausages, best paired with a bottle of red from the adjacent wine cellar — they are avid supporters of boutique wines!


An urban tropical escape from the concrete jungle — that’s the idea behind the hotel's fourth floor poolside bar. It's a spot to soak up the Singapore sun and the idyllic atmosphere with your shades on and a drink in hand.


Plan your visits for either a Friday or Saturday, as that’s the patio turns into a chill, alfresco space for their poolside barbecue nights. The four-course Barbecue Set Menu ($78) yields a selection of free flow mains, fired to order for a meaty, succulent dinner.
