These highly-rated restaurants on foodpanda are just Chef’s kiss.
Singapore may be small, but it might be home to the highest concentration of Michelin-star restaurants in the world. With 44 restaurants holding at least one Michelin star (and hundreds of others given Michelin Plate or Bib Gourmand statuses, see below), that means the country has one Michelin-level restaurant for every 130,000 Singaporeans. By comparison, the USA has one Michelin-level restaurant for every 2 million people. Go Singapore!

The executive chef and founder of Garibaldi, Roberto Galetti, built his restaurant’s reputation on an original take on ossobuco that sees a sumptuous, slow-braised wagyu beef cheek paired with decadent bone marrow and creamy mash; as well as a tiramisu lifted straight from his mother’s personal repertoire. No wonder, then, it’s one of Singapore’s most respected Italian restaurants.
These dishes and more sit on the checklist of every Singapore foodie, but Garibaldi’s extensive menu has plenty of home comforts, too, whether it’s a hearty plate of spinach gnocchi in a blue cheese and walnut sauce, or a perfectly done dish of fettuccine with san marzano tomatoes, basil and parmesan cheese.
Garibaldi’s full wine menu charts some 7,000 carefully curated labels, which they’ve whittled down to a few trusted favourites for your home delivery order. Be sure to factor in an aperitif, too – Garibaldi bottles its craft cocktails for take-out. We recommend the “Truffle Tini”, a luscious mix of gin, black truffle, fino sherry and salted honey. Yum.
And guess what? It’s all available with free delivery!
Restaurant, Chinese, Soup, Top Rated | 1 Michelin star

The man behind PUTIEN, Fong Chi Chung, successfully transformed a humble coffee shop-style eatery into a globally known Chinese restaurant empire that you can find in Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Malaysia, Taiwan and even Indonesia.
Chi Chung was determined to introduce Putian’s cuisine to the world. His commitment to preserving freshness and authenticity while offering an impeccable dining experience has led PUTIEN to its massive success – and a Michelin star.
PUTIEN serves authentic Heng Hwa cuisine from China’s Fujian province, and each one of the scrumptious dishes carries the essence of this heritage: fresh, light and invigorating. Putian itself is a beautiful coastal city in eastern Fujian where the Mulan River flows through the southern part of the city.
Imagine sipping a hearty bowl of lor mee, followed by a dish of freshly iced Nanri abalone bred on natural seaweed. Want something more comforting? Dig into the tender shredded pork, beautifully encased in a crunchy sesame bun. Ah! Don’t miss out on the classic sweet and sour pork with a tangy lychee twist, either.
These mouthwatering dishes are only a tap away from you.
Welcome to one of Singapore’s most revered Cantonese institutions – and a four-year fixture in the Michelin Guide. You’ll find this contemporary restaurant inside the Ritz-Carlton hotel, Singapore and while there are countless Chinese restaurants on the island, Summer Pavilion remains one of our favourites.
Its tranquil setting looks out upon Chinese gardens that make for the perfect space to enjoy an entire afternoon. But it’s the food that really entices. Modern yet authentic, Summer Pavilion’s star dishes include juicy poached rice with Canadian lobster, and braised abalone, the deep-sea delicacy beloved throughout Asia.
Sip on a cup of Momo-In-Black tea that is surely one of the finest in Singapore, or get fruity with a bottle of high-grade sparkling wine – also available from the comfort of your living room.
Restaurant, European, Mediterranean, Modern European | Michelin Plate
18 Marina Gardens Drive, 018953, Singapore
When Singaporean gourmands think of the words “Mediterranean,” “produce-driven,” and “tasting menu,” They think of Pollen. That’s thanks to the work of executive chef Michael Wilson, whose philosophy “life is about the ingredients” translates into minimalist dishes that showcase the finest produce drawn from the heritage of the Ancient Mediterranean region.
Chef Wilson’s turns old-world Mediterranean cuisine into sophisticated dishes that suit a range of palates – and for foodpanda’s home delivery, he’s cooked up something really special.
Foregoing tasting menu formalities, Chef Wilson prepares a luscious Beef Wellington: Australian beef tenderloin and mushroom duxelle encased in crispy puff pastry. Top off this luscious home dining experience with a selection of artisanal tarts to cleanse your palate. Want something refreshing? Then go for the zesty lemon tart with fluffy meringue on top, or go all out with the rich and decadent Valrhona chocolate cake. Sounds delicious, right? If it were easy to resist, it would not be called chocolate cake.
Let us reveal the most affordable Michelin-listed restaurant on our list. As the winner of a Michelin Bib Gourmand award for four consecutive years, Bismillah Biryani has found a special place in the hearts of Singaporeans looking to enjoy finger-licking dum biryani and other tasty Pakistani and North Indian treats.
Bismillah Biryani’s menu lists a selection of tantalizing dishes that cater to a diverse range of diets. Even something as simple as chicken biryani here tastes exquisite thanks to its rich amalgamation of flavours. On a meat-free diet? Their mixture of fresh veggies, herbs, spices make for the perfect vegetable biryani, too.
Personally, our order is never complete without a kebab. The flavoursome mutton seekh kebab is one of Lonely Planet’s favourites (and ours too!). To top it off, indulge in firni, a classic Indian rice-pudding that is creamy and sweet. Find everything you’re craving from Bismillah Biryani on foodpanda and have it delivered to your doorstep.
These five restaurants are truly Michelin-worthy. See something you like? Have us deliver good food directly to you and indulge in world-leading cuisine from the comfort of your own home, or choose Pick-Up for instant savings.

What’s with the awards?
Michelin’s rating system doesn’t begin and end with its venerable star system. Sure, they’re still the highest accolade in the culinary world, but Michelin also has two other categories for food that’s not quite star-worthy – but too good not to mention. Here’s how it works.
A rating system that the Michelin Guide uses to grade restaurants on their quality. Restaurants get 0–3 stars based on Michelin’s time-worn criteria: quality of the ingredients, mastery of flavour and cooking techniques, the personality of the chef in his cuisine, value for money, and consistency between visits.
In the characteristically restrained language of the Michelin Guide, this award is for restaurants who serve “very good food”. For many restaurateurs and chefs, it’s a stepping stone on their way to their first star.
Not all great restaurants need classical French technique and a Swiss-trained sommelier, and Michelin knows that. Friendly establishments with amazing cuisine, a no-frills atmosphere and everyday affordable prices can find themselves in line for the Bib Gourmand award.
