Chinese New Year is fast approaching, and it’s time to start thinking about those reunion dinners! If your family prefers heading out for a sumptuous meal cooked by someone else (rather than slaving over the kitchen at home!), check out the 9 reunion dinner spots that we’ve specially curated in this article.
This Chinese New Year, PUTIEN is offering a “Pot Of Goodies” pen cai and Prosperity Yusheng – these may either be ordered ala carte, or together with the three different Chinese New Year set meals. PUTIEN has even arranged for a God of Fortune to make his way down to their different outlets to hand out goodie bags to diners – click here for the list of timings!

For a more contemporary reunion dinner, try Sky22, which is located at Courtyard By Marriott Singapore. This place ticks all our boxes: it’s conveniently located (less than five minutes away from Novena MRT!), the ambience is great (the restaurant is on the 22nd level, which gives you a nice view), and of course – the food is amazing as well. We’re talking Roasted Duck with Hoisin Sauce, Red Wine Braised Beef Cheeks, and Pan-seared Sea Bass with Sambal Olek… yum!
#3: Dian Xiao Er
When it comes to Chinese food, Dian Xiao Er is a classic. This Chinese New Year, they’re offering three different set meals, for parties of 3 pax to 10 pax. All set meals come with the Prosperity Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng, as well as their signature Herbal Roast Duck.

Here’s one for all the vegetarians out there – Elemen’s eight-course Chinese New Year feast features plenty of goodies such as Prosperity Truffle Yu Sheng, Steamed Truffle Rice with Braised Sauce, and Charcoal Beancurd with Golden Oyster Mushroom. Definitely a deviation from traditional Chinese food, but we like it!

If your motto is “go big or go home”, you’ll love the Chinese New Year menu over at modern Cantonese restaurant, Yàn. If you do decide to dine here, have your phone at the ready – you’ll definitely want to snap pictures of the ultra luxe “Shun De Yu” Sheng, which comes topped with slices of fresh yellowfish, and adorned with gold flakes.

How about switching it up with a Peranakan style reunion dinner? This year, Folklore is offering both a Chinese New Year set lunch and a Tok Panjang dinner. You’ll be treated to a feast of heritage dishes prepared true to Chef Damian’s grandmother’s recipes, including Fish Maw Soup, Bakwan Kepiting, Sambal Belimbling, and of course, the iconic Babi Pongteh.
#7: Lime Restaurant at PARKROYAL on Pickering
If you want to splash out on a good meal with your loved ones, your best bet is Lime Restaurant. Their “Royal Reunion” buffet menu includes mouthwatering dishes such as Peking Duck, Braised Seafood Soup with Fish Maw and Crabmeat, Roasted King Salmon in Salt Crust, and Five Spice Braised Duck Leg in Carta Fata; if you’re having dinner instead of lunch, each diner even gets a complimentary serving of Buddha Jump over the Wall and Prosperity Yu Sheng.
