Bonding with family and relatives — especially during special occasions and seasons — is a big part of the Singaporean culture and tradition; and because of strong family ties, family bonding moments are often enjoyed over a satisfying lunch or dinner. If you’re looking for a suitable venue to dine in with your family, here are four things to consider when looking for a good family restaurant in Singapore.

  1. Family-Friendly Ambience
  2. Having a family-friendly ambiance is vital for a good family restaurant. It should have a mood that’s inviting for families, especially for the children. Friendly and helpful staffs, long tables, space for baby prams and a well-lit environment are some qualities of a good family-friendly restaurant. Restaurant staffs must also be trained to be patient and able to handle kids properly. Having an activity for children to do is also a plus for family-friendly restaurants; kids enjoy doing activities that will keep them preoccupied while waiting for the food to be served.

  3. Kid’s Friendly Menu

    Having a kid’s menu with a child-friendly selection of dishes is a mark of a good family restaurant. Since kids have different tastes compared to adult patrons, a special menu that offers dishes such as Fish Fingers, Spaghetti or Chicken Cutlet, while at the same time nutritional, will be highly attractive to them, especially those who are very picky with food.

    Portions also matter to parents; huge servings will leave the kids bloated while small portions could leave the kids unsatisfied. Striking the right serving size is a huge plus point.

  5. Serves Nutritious Food
  6. Other than kids’ menu, having healthy and nutritious kids-friendly food is important too. Parents today are now more conscious of healthier living and are aware of the side effects of processed food. A balanced meal consists of the right amount of carbohydrates, protein and vitamins while still tasting delicious.

    Having a well-balanced meal is something parents would appreciate and consider when patronizing a good family restaurant.

  7. Private Rooms and Event Spaces
