Dai ShaoYe

This restaurant was recommended by Michelin as the best Singaporean Cusine shortly after it’s opening.

Founder Mr Tony Cheng gave us much freedom on the design, his only hope was for the interior to reminiscent a lazy summer afternoon which a ShaoYe would spend at home tending to his flowers, birds & fishes.  As the area is not big, besides the semi open kitchen and seating, we could work on the walls only.  We invited artists to paint fishes swimming in the pond, the painters were specialising in wall painting, they worked on projects such as Disney and stage sets.  Overlooking the yacht pier, any afternoon would be a lazy one.
