Szechuan Style


On those days when you just want something hot peppery and delicious, this is our signature King prawn Szechuan style, and it is what hits the spot.

It is grown abundantly in the Sichuan region of China. The hull of the seed is often used for medicinal purposes. It also contains light notes of citrus which adds to its robust flavour. Around the world, this dish is well known and in a way can [...]

Lunch on the Go


August days are here, and it's this month where we get to make good Summer moments count. Gone are the days where one cooks a large meal at lunch time. These days, a plate of a quick bite of something nutritional and delicious does the trick in the midst of busy work afternoons. This is why we introduced our special lunch platters --ones you can take TO GO, or you can enjoy in the comfort of the surroundings of Naturally Chinese Restaurant. Most of us do get quite peckish in the afternoon but the idea is to feed ourselves without overloading [...]

Exotic combinations


Delicious dishes begin with good ingredients. A simple cooking process is also a key factor, with care and attention to the finer details. Our range of the finer dishes on the menu incorporate these aspects. For instance, the rice parcels wrapped in lotus leaves brings an aroma to inspire out of a simple wholesome ingredient that is rice. And though we are a Chinese restaurants, we include some special pieces of cuisine that we are influenced by greatly. These are the Rice Paper Spring rolls, wrapped neatly in a rice paper thin pastry made from scratch by our pastry chef. These [...]

We source some of the best ingredients to create that timeless Peking Duck lunch or dinner experience, one that is momentous and pertinent [...]

Value and Aesthetic


Having a great team of chefs who are not only passionate about the food but highly skilled at what they do is a big asset. Their effortless way of delivering food well cooked on a plate has proven to be an art in itself. Apart from our daily lunch and dinners, there are those occasions when a special event calls for the traditional dishes that are essential to Chinese celebrations. Our big focus has been a trinity of factors - taste, nutritional value and aesthetic and I've been comforted greatly to know that the team are working to refine these continually. [...]
