“What to eat ah?” — A common refrain uttered by almost every working professional at lunch time.
Well, you can easily find the answer at SAFRA. Decked with a comprehensive list of F&B establishments, SAFRA clubhouses dish out a plethora of diverse food options, from classic Indian cuisine and Western food to Thai hotpot.
But food is not all that SAFRA has to offer. Perhaps you’re not particularly hungry, and prefer to use your lunch break to get your workout in, or even indulge in some me-time pampering. Read on for our list of recommended makan spots at SAFRA, as well as some suggestions to spend a productive or relaxing lunch hour!
From being the first Indian restaurant to develop an Indian-Chinese fusion menu in 2000, to being the first to adopt a drive-through concept in 2018, Sakunthala’s Restaurant has grown to six eateries spread across Singapore, with one in SAFRA Mount Faber.
Sakunthala’s set meals are a must-try! Starting from just $8 per set, they include a generous portion of your chosen protein – choose from dishes such as Chicken Tikka Masala, Mutton Mysore, Curry Fish and more – plain rice, and a selection of vegetables, sides and curry gravy.

Suki–Suki Thai Hot Pot
At halal-certified Suki-Suki Thai Hot Pot, choose from a unique selection of soup bases including Clear or Red Tom Yum, Khao Soi and Sweet Basil Chicken, which encapsulate the iconic Thai flavours of sweet, sour, and savoury. At just $19.90++ for their lunch buffet, feast to your heart’s content on 40 ingredients including fresh seafood, meats, veggies, and even seasonal fruits and desserts to end your meal.
Interestingly, Suku-Suki steers away from the usual range of dipping sauces, instead opting for Thai-Japanese inspired creations such as Jaew (Thai Barbeque), Seafood and Sukiyaki. There’s no better way to bond over food than with a good ol’ hotpot, so put away the work talk and dig in!
