LE Restaurant and Asian Tapas Bar @ Suntec City Mall


The newly revamped Suntec City has reopened with quite a few brand new restaurants, and one of them is Le Restaurant which is by the people behind the Paradise Group of restaurants.

At the centre of the restaurant is this light-changing Buddha statue, creating a mystical ambience.

The entrance to the restaurant. I think 90% of people who pass by this entrance would have no idea that this place serves Cantonese food and Dim Sum.

For lunch today, we ordered their S$188 and S$138 set meal, where we can try all the various dishes.

Started off with the Chilled Mexican Abalone with Soy Sesame Dressing. A refreshing appetizer to start off our feast.

Another appetizer was this Hokkaido Scallop Carpaccio with Soy Vinaigrette. Scallop was fresh and sweet.

Something for the cold weather - Double boiled Porcini fungus and cordyceps flower soup

Another abalone dish - Pan seared Foie Gras accompanied with braised 6-head abalone

Red Garoupa poached in lobster broth. You can imagine how sweet the soup is.

Pan fried French duck thigh with Thai salad and shallot. Very interesting dish and very flavourful.

Pan seared grade 9 Australian wagyu beef with lemon zest. The beef was juicy.

Stir fried angel hair with lobster. Really enjoyed this dish. If I could, I will order one big plate next time!

Chilled noodles with king crab in Teochew broth. This pales in comparison to the former dish.

A look at the interior seats. Although the décor is dark, but the chairs and tables are rather bright.

For dessert, we had the Crispy custard lava bun with vanilla gelato

Sweet temptation of mango sago, avocado cream, Yakult pudding and fruits

Adjourned to bar area for house cocktail. Double Happiness : Bombay east gin, kaffir lime.

The restaurant wasn't crowded when we were there on a weekend lunch. The food is good, but maybe the décor is confusing for some who thinks this is a western food restaurant.

  1. LE Restaurant is from Paradise Group right? Nice concept but I always felt that the trend of Tapas Bar will just come and go. Hopefully not the restaurant.
