Drawing inspiration from the restaurant’s Chinese name ‘宴’ — The experience at Yàn is reminiscent of convivial gatherings and feelings of togetherness
The menu will be a reflection of the best of Cantonese cuisine, offering up familiar flavours with sincerity and heart; ensuring diners get both a gratifying meal and a visual feast. We strongly believe in the core principles and discipline of traditional Cantonese cooking.
The provenance of the ingredients is very important to us. While our cooking is principally authentic Cantonese; through the diversity of ingredients and innovative pairings, guests can expect to see some signature dishes that have been lovingly crafted which will not only tantalise your taste buds, but also touch your hearts.
Befitting its location in the iconic National Gallery Singapore, Yàn takes the opportunity to be creative in its space execution, infusing elements of art in its DNA. Fashioned with flexible private dining rooms and a spacious communal hall, Yàn provides the perfect ambience for guests to indulge in either a corporate dining experience or an intimate dinner.
Guests’ attention can be focused onto our exquisite tables as well as handpicked art pieces around the restaurant, continuing the museum experience in an informal way. The intensity of the three-dimensional approach; lighting, furniture, and decorative arts, provide guests with the most sophisticated dining experience.
Trained in the traditions of Cantonese cuisine and with two decades of experience, Executive Chef Lai brings his own distinctive sensibilities to Yàn. Chef Lai cooks from the heart, and seeks to evoke heartwarming emotions through finely executed dishes. His dedication to quality derives from provenance, and insistence that good cooking requires time and focus; values gained from his humble beginnings in Hong Kong — which he now brings to the table at Yàn. Serving dishes that resonate with sincerity and nostalgia, Chef Lai’s arrival marks a new way of feasting at Yàn.
