Service at Malayan Council was very attentive. The food was merely good, not excellent as I had hoped from reading reviews here. I consider it pricey for the quality.

Service was amazing! I had the duck noodles. It was the perfect combo of spice and savory with the perfectly cooked duck. It was recommended by the waiter and I had debated the Wellington. Very happy with my choice. Generous portion and was one of...my best meals. I had the vanilla bourbon tea and the special house cake. The cake was delightful, light fluffy and the brown sugar/nut filling was ever so sweet.More

Had just the best experience at the TMC Esplanade. My partner and I went to this resto without any first-hand knowledge with what we were about the experience. As a fan of Hell's Kitchen and it being our anniversary we wanted to try the very...known Beef Wellington and we had no regrets getting our first try of the dish in this resto. The meat was tender and well-seasoned, the pastry wasn’t doughy and very tasty which complements the meat and it also includes creamy mashed potato and roasted parsnip. We also had their satay, truffle fries, meatball spaghetti which was definitely a big feast for two people but we still managed to finish and enjoy all the dishes and 2 of their artisanal coffee drinks.  What made this experience memorable were TMC’s accommodating staff and the nice atmosphere of the resto, we were very delighted to receive complimentary cakes which was the classic ondeh-ondeh cake ( had a unique and addicting taste).  Few days after, we wanted to dine again at the TMC esplanade; however, it was full at the time so we were advised by their staff to return at a later time. Once we got back to check we were immediately assisted to our table and even gave us their recommendation for desserts. Without a miss, we loved the bread and butter pudding and TMC waffles that they suggested we order. The desserts alone were enough to make us full and satisfied. All of the dishes we ordered were fair priced in my opinion considering the accommodation you'll get.  It would be an understatement to say that the TMC esplanade gave us a great dining experience. It was definitely one of the best dining experiences we had as partners and would definitely come back to dine again when i visit back to Singapore. To Ms. Gerlyn, Sir Alexis, Sir Amir, Sir Jay, Ms. Sha, and Ms. Shay, it was nice to meet and interact with you all and Kudos to the TMC Esplanade team.More

Three of us decided to have a Pre-National Day celebration lunch at The Malayan Council at the Esplanade Mall. This restaurant is brightly lit and is so cosy for a relaxing and comfy meal with friends. Food is delicious and service excellent. Generous gift of...their signature cake for our dessert. Water is provided and constantly refilled. A nice place to keep coming backMore

Had our dinner buffet at The Malayan Council in Fullerton The Boathouse and was amazed by the service and foods served. We had an enjoyable experience dining in as the whole time WE NEVER NEED to call out for empty plates services nor drink refills...as the service staffs n Managers are always lookout for any tables for that! Thats a 10🌟service recommended! Foods are mostly delicious however i might need to give a feedback of 2, regards the Kobe Beef 5 Spices need to tone down on the saltiness as i felt it abit salty and rich. The Kobe beef however can be much thinly slice so that it doesnt feel “jelak”. I hope to have future more flavors of dessert ice creams or myb a “Coconut ice cream” or Durian pengatMore

Thank you for going the extra mile in delighting our dinner. The service was intimate and sincere and prompt. The food as always tastes delicious. And thank you for remembering my birthday. Special thanks to the team at fullerton, especially Ms alexis. Thank you for...having coke in your menu, and not charging for plain water.
