Asian cuisine is one of the most diverse and flavourful cuisines in the world. It comprises major regional cuisines such as South Asian, East Asian, Southeast Asian, Central Asian, and more. Though there are similarities between them, such as the use of rice, curry or noodles, there are vast differences in the ingredients used and the style in which they are cooked.

Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, or Japanese – whatever Asian cuisine you might like, you’ll almost certainly find it at Marina Bay Sands. Our list of the best Asian restaurants showcases a wide range of award-winning, fine dining restaurants, and casual dining options that serve some of the best Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Vietnamese food that you can savour in Singapore.
