Dining With A Large Group Of People? Here Are Some Restaurants Under $30/Pax!

This is (for sure) a common question that almost everyone here in Singapore would have faced at least once in their life. Some of the commonly asked questions for outings in Singapore:

  • Where to eat?
  • Cheap or not?
  • Can fit everyone?

Yes, can it fit everyone? All of your friends, colleagues maybe even your entire kampung.

Kampung is a traditional village usually in rural parts of a country, a term mainly used in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

One of our Community members, Steph Yeo, asked:

In case you can’t view the image,

“What are some recommended restaurants good for groups ranging from 10 to 25? E.g. for department celebrations, farewell lunches/dinners etc.

Budget preferable within $50/pax.

Thanks in advance!”

For this article, and because we are Seedly, we will be looking at cheaper alternatives with a budget of S$30 per person.

Some of these places were recommended by our Community members based on their own experience, along with interesting places we’ve handpicked, just for you!

Chinese Restaurants For Group Dining Under $30 Per Pax

Mouth Restaurant @ China Square Central

You have to try the liu sha bao (custard bun), crispy on the outside, really different from everywhere else. I am not a fan of custard bun but if it takes a lot for a non-believer to recommend that to you.

If you haven’t heard of this place, I guess you haven’t really been on Instagram often.

Though if you haven’t been there, I kinda get why, since it’s a little out of the way.
