And since they are so many places to choose from – and probably many snaking queues during the weekends – we’ve sussed out the best places to eat at Plaza Singapura.

Located on the third floor, Lokkee is a trendy Chinese restaurant that specialises in the kind of Asian take-out food usually found in the West.
