Have you ever encountered this with your kids?

“Hey, let’s eat somewhere nice today!”

“Okay, where?”

“Eat what?”

“What’s there to do there?”

Many parents go to great lengths to provide their kids with a dining experience that is both novel and enjoyable, searching high and low to find that perfect food gem. 

Well, it’s your lucky day! We have put together this list with some of the best family-friendly eateries around Singapore, so that you can spend less time planning, and more time having fun with your loved ones.

1. 929 Dessert & Bites

929 Dessert & Bites

Ice creams, waffles, and a whole lot of bingsu; what more can a kid ask for?

The sweet-toothed will definitely be spoilt for choice at 929 Dessert & Bites. With over 15 bingsu variants to choose from, this cosy parlour is unafraid to experiment with multi-dimensional flavours. Get groovy with a serving of Funky Town, vanilla-infused shaved ice topped with strawberry ice cream, rainbow cereal and strawberry sauce. Want a taste of true bliss? Over the Moon blends vanilla and chocolate with a two-flavour bingsu that is coated with a rich chocolate sauce and Oreo crumbs.

7th Heaven KTV & Café

Better described as an integrated entertainment eatery, 7th Heaven KTV & Café seeks not only to feed your appetite for food, but also for fun! 

It houses 15 game and KTV rooms that are decked with comfortable sofas, gaming consoles, board games and of course, karaoke machines for shower singers to finally go public. 

And the food is definitely something to write home about – Mac & Cheese that is oozing with cheesy goodness, and Laksa Pasta that is bathed in a spicy and savoury cream broth accompanied by an assortment of fresh seafood. You have to try its Chocolate Fudge Brownie, an indulgent treat brimming with a moist chocolate filling and topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel drizzle. 

If anything, 7th Heaven KTV & Café provides families a great opportunity to reconnect amidst the hustle of everyday life; really, how often do you get to eat, sing, and laugh with your loved ones in the same room at the same time?

3. Siam Kitchen

Siam Kitchen

This casual Thai restaurant serves unpretentious and authentic fare that best represents the vibrancy of Thai cuisine. 

And it does it impressively well. Its menu is a melting pot of the many tastes of Thailand, from international favourites like Tom Yum Talay (Red Tom Yum Soup) and Gaeng Kiew Wan Gai (Green Curry with Chicken) to lesser-known specialities such as Pla Neung Ma Now (Steamed Seabass with a Chili Lime Dressing). And not to worry if the little ones dont take spicy food — there are plenty of non-spicy options, such as Honey Sesame Chicken, Crabmeat Omelette and Pineapple Fried Rice.

And recreational options are aplenty! Located at SAFRA Toa Payoh, it joins the likes of SuperBowl and Kidz Amaze, allowing you to make the most out of your visit!

6. Kurokare


Nestled within Singapore Management University (SMU)’s School of Computing and Information Systems, this unassuming eatery was started by chefs with a background in fine dining. Despite its low profile, Kurokare has become known as a hidden food gem, lauded for its affordable Japanese curries. Kurokare itself has gone as far as to brand its curries as one of Singapore’s best. Talk about confidence!  

Seriously though, they do cook up a mean curry. Its Homemade Chicken Thigh Katsu features a fried cutlet that is succulent and well-seasoned. If your family is looking for something more affordable, ask for their flavour of the day! Dishes start at $7.90 for public diners and only $5.90 for SMU students.

The strategic location opens so many possibilities for families looking to spend the day together. Visit the National Gallery afterwards or shop at Bugis Junction; the possibilities are endless.

7. The Homme Baker

The Homme Baker

This isn’t your ordinary cake shop. Pond Lim, pastry chef and cake epicurean, seeks to reinvent classic cakes with his own unique twists.

Your kids will squeal when they come face to face with his signature Tom & Jerry collection — a trio of Swiss cheesecake slices. Looks can be deceiving, however! It’s actually an assortment of cakes coated in velvety chocolate shells. And the flavours they come in are truly exotic, with the likes of T&J Ondeh, which has hints of gula melaka and a pandan-infused chocolate shell garnished with coconut shavings, and T&J Yuzu, a beautiful harmony consisting of Japanese yuzu, lemon curd, honey cream cheese and cookie crumble. 

Just a few bus stops away lie Kent Ridge Park and the Canopy Walk, which are perfect for a day of adventure with your kids!
