Tsing Tao is specialised in preparing seafood based Chinese dishes, and thus this is the best place to satisfy your deep ocean cravings by devouring some of the best seafood dishes in town.

Upon entering the restaurant, the delightful swirls of aromas wafting off from the kitchen immediately transport diners to the Land of the Red Dragon, enveloping them in a picture of far Eastern mystique. From golden hued interior to elegant lamps, Tsing Tao echoes grandeur and elegance. Spacious, with stunning panoramic views of the Racecourse Pavilion and the surrounding lush greenery of the area, the location of the restaurant is captivating. The relaxed ambience of Tsing Tao along with luxurious finishes has a fine balance between warm and chic. The outdoor dining space of the restaurant provides an excellent view of the rugby ground and allows access to the tiered seating where it will be possible to watch the action in the middle.

The menu at Tsing Tao displays a myriad of dishes originating from the diverse regions of China, which have been recreated to perfection by the master chefs of the restaurant. Begin your Chinese feast with an array of starters including Vegetable spring rolls, Sesame prawn toast, Fried crab claws with hot garlic sauce and Deep fried chicken wontons, to whet your appetite. Tsing Tao offers its diners both thick soups and clear soups. From the celebrated lagoon mud crab to succulent cuttlefish, jumbo prawns and lobster, Tsing Tao specialises in offering a tongue-tingling array of Chinese seafood dishes. The signature Deep fried lobster with ginger and spring onion is a delicious dish with the famed Sri Lankan lagoon crab. Cantonese style stir-fried prawns with celery and cashew nuts is yet another delectable dish that guarantees to have diners craving for more. All-time favourites such as Hot butter cuttlefish, Steamed garoupa with chili XO sauce, Fried fish fillets with ginger and spring onion as well as Singapore style chili crab are inclusive of the menu.

Apart from the seafood dishes, there’s an array of meat based mains including Deep-fried chicken Szechuan style, Wok-fried beef with kangkung, Szechuan style spicy pork belly with cabbage and Wok fried lamb with zucchini XO sauce.
