6 Restaurants In S’pore With Such Unique Themes, The Food Isn’t Important

Latest Articles

Ever wanted to visit strangely themed restaurants, like the famed toilet-themed restaurant in Taipei or the skeleton-themed restaurant in Switzerland, but realised that it would cost too much?

Well, you don’t have to travel overseas solely for a visit to a themed restaurant because Singapore has some pretty quirky themed restaurants that will definitely be worth your 2-hour travelling time.

Nox: Dine in the Dark


You must have heard of multiple restaurants where patrons are required to dine in the dark, unable to see what they are cutting into or eating. The concept of Nox: Dine In The Dark is exactly that and what makes it so special is that customers are served by visually impaired waiters and waitresses.

Eating in the dark is also said to heighten your other senses, such as hearing, taste, and touch so it is pretty safe to assume that we can expect good food from Nox.

Where: 269 Beach Rd, Singapore 199546
Opening hours: 6pm to 12am (Mon to Sat), 5pm to 11pm (Sat)

Kombi Rocks


Kombi Rocks is a diner dedicated to vintage cars but before the remodelling, it used to be a restaurant that served both Teochew and Thai food. You are able to check out all the retro cars parked outside the restaurant which are also available for rental for wedding photoshoots.

The restaurant is also available for booking for private events and they even provide patrons with a chauffeur service too – how’s that for quality service?

Opening hours: 12pm to 12am (Tues to Sat), 12pm to 11pm (Sun and Mon)

Lego lovers need not go all the way to Malaysia just to visit Lego Land with the new Lego-themed cafe, Bricks ‘N’ Cubes. Situated at Cathay, the cafe is perfect for both children or adults who are kids at heart with their colourful interior and cheerful atmosphere. There is even a children’s play area within the cafe for kids 2 to 6 years old so parents can enjoy their meal peacefully and take in all the colours.

Where: #02-12/14, 2 Handy Rd, Singapore 229233
Opening hours: 12pm to 11pm (Sun to Thurs), 12pm to 12am (Fri and Sat)

Tian Kee and Co.


Whoever said Singaporeans no longer admire the aesthetics of traditional old school Singapore will have to eat their words upon visiting this cafe. The cafe retained majority of the decor from when the place was still a provision shop and the smart owners turned it into a themed cafe. Since it is so old school, don’t expect cushy chairs and modern-looking tables. Instead, you will see foldable tables and rusty gates, all of which adds to the rustic charm of the place.

Where: 12 Dakota Crescent, Singapore 390012
Opening hours: 10am to 10pm (Tues to Fri), 9am to 11pm (Sat),
9am to 10pm (Sun)

Windowsill In The Woods


Want to experience an afternoon with nature and yet don’t wish to sweat? Windowsill in the Woods is probably a better idea for those who feel more at home while indoors. The woodsy interior of the cafe will draw you in and their giant wooden tree will subconsciously force you to stay with how adorable it looks. The cafe owners didn’t start up this place just to appeal to its customers with its appearance either, their pies are to-die-for and are freshly made every day!

Where: 95 Soo Chow Walk, 575382
Opening hours: 11am to 11pm (Tues to Thurs), 11am to 12am (Fri and Sat), 10am to 10pm (Sun), closed on Mondays

Riders Cafe


Riders Cafe got food bloggers and the media going gaga with its location which is right next to a horse riding facility in Bukit Timah when it first opened a few years ago. Till date, the cafe still enjoys good business despite being non-air conditioned in the recent humid Singapore weather. If you are lucky, you might just be able to stand a seat next to the window and watch all the horses in their natural habitat!

Where: 51 Fairways Drive, Singapore 286965
Opening hours: 8am to 9pm (Sun to Thurs), 8am to 10pm (Fri and Sat)
