The restaurant takes inspiration from the five home-style flavours of Chinese cuisine with an emphasis on fresh ingredients and sustainable seafood – culminating in a true epicurean harmony of salty, spicy, sour, sweet and bitter.
Chinese cuisine is traditionally categorised into five flavours: Salty, Spicy, Sour, Sweet and Bitter, and emphasizes the harmony of these flavours. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the harmony of the five flavours can not only improve one’s taste experience, it also helps achieve a balance of good health. 5 ON 25 is the representation and the embodiment of these key Chinese cultural beliefs and traditions.
Journey through an intimate cocooned foyer lined with white stone and dusky wood and into the warmly furnished dining room. In a subtle nod to the old world charm of 1950s Singapore, the restaurant is in a palette of rich colours and textures, and every piece of furniture and fitting is bespoke.
