Summer Pavilion
One MICHELIN Star, MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2019

For sophistication in spades, Summer Pavilion at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore is the place to see and be seen. Its refined dining hall, fashioned as a summer garden, serves exquisite dim sum and modern presentations of traditional Cantonese fare on iconic hand-painted Italian tableware. The restaurant has garnered a one-star rating every consecutive year since 2016 under Chinese executive chef Cheung Siu Kong, who has been with the restaurant since 2003. “To make our cuisine more accessible and fresh, I have added new elements such as caviar and truffle to Cantonese dishes that offer more flexibility,” he says. “We have also explored different presentation styles, that will allow closer interactions with our guests – beyond just taste, we need to engage in smell and sight too.”

Private business meetings can be held in one of six posh private dining rooms - the Garden Suite, Wisteria, Plum, Pine, Elm and Bamboo. The Garden Suite is equipped with three built-in LCD projectors and screens while special menu requests and customisations will be handled with aplomb by the experienced service staff.
