With more than 30 restaurants around the world under his belt in just five years, Jamie Oliver’s first restaurant in Asia oozes rustic charm in typical Jamie’s Italian-style, with bespoke furniture handmade by local craftsmen and the cosy chic design by UK-based award-winning agency Blacksheep. Their pastas are made every morning, with ingredients sourced for freshness. From wild truffle risotto and veal flash steak to the cured meat platter and panna cotta, the menu is tweaked every four months while set menus are customisable for private events. The casual, fuss-free dining concept allows up to 210 seats indoors and 40 seats outdoors, and its alfresco space can be transformed for an event of up to 100 standing guests. The restaurant also has a private dining room which sits up to 14 people. However, indoor dining spaces can only be partially booked and must be booked at least two weeks in advance.

New face of Indochine
The recently-revamped IndoChine at The Forbidden City, Clarke Quay still has its entrance flanked by terracotta warriors. But the new interior continues to live up to its award-winning designs synonymous with prominent events and internationally-famed parties, with chefs delivering delicacies that are both nutritious and full of medicinal benefits. Greeting guests from the river entrance, the Anastasia Lounge is decked out in red chandeliers and baroque-style black and silver furniture that takes up half of the first floor, separated from sister outlet, Bianca Supper Club by soundproof folding doors and glass windows. Ideal for product launches and presentations with ceiling-to-floor projector screens, both rooms can accommodate 250-300 people each.
For an elegant blend of old-world oriental charm and modern sophistication, Restaurant Madame Butterfly serves up contemporary Chinese cuisine with Indochina influences. The restaurant extends to a balcony overlooking the courtyard and garden into Clarke Quay, seating up to 180 guests. Intimate functions of fewer than 50 guests may opt for the Oscar Whisky & Zigar Bar, its chesterfield-inspired luxurious black leather couches and hunting trophies giving the space a masculine vibe unlike other parts of the Forbidden City. It is also home to the rarest whiskies from around the world, and stocked with fine Cuban cigars.
