Description: True to its brand ethos of uniting the best of local street fare in a holistic dining concept, Food Opera offers an elegant ambience that comes together with the multitude of delicious heritage dishes from its 27 vendors to create a unique, nostalgic dining experience. Inspired by the timeless British colonial decor style in Singapore during the 1900s era, the sprawling 19,000 square foot space is awash in light blue and ivory, accentuated with brass and earth tones, and characterised by lush greenery and foliage – trademark design features of the 1900s. Entering Food Opera, diners will be drawn to the alluring sights, sounds and smells from the wide range of stalls, kiosks and mini restaurants serving up a plethora of cuisines from local hawker delights and traditional street snacks. Satisfy your cravings with beef noodles from Scotts Hwa Heng, or choose from an array of fritters from Shou Yi. Thye Hong Hokkien Mee promises to to thrill with their selection of noodles & carrot cake.

The heart of Singapore shopping would have to be around Orchard Rd/Scotts Rd so it was great to stumble on the basement Food Opera in ION Orchard as lunch time was beckoning. The range of food on offer was extensive, the prices reasonable for the location and the quality good. Unfortunately, the Malaysian hawker was closed so the taste for Char Kway Teow had to be satisfied otherwise; but, the choice was extensive. In summary, if you hanker for genuine, reasonably priced Asian hawker food then you can't go past the Food Opera.

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch and came across Food Opera while having a walk around the shopping centre. There are lots of different cuisines and prices are very reasonable and servings are generous. We had lunch or dinner several times at Food Opera and never got bored.

My family and I have spent the last two trips to Singapore exploring this food court. We were used to others and this time decided to spend more time to get to know this one.

The food court at ION is huge and the options for dining-in restaurants are many. So this place is a food lovers paradise. There are so many different types of food available and so many kiosks to choose from. One can spend a few months just dining here and still not explore it entirely. And everything I have tried out so far is amazing.

I would recommend walking around the Basement (B4) first and then choosing. Do not go in their super hugry and sit or choose the very first place you see. It is imperative that you first walk around and see all your options and then pick and choose where and how you want to fix your tray up.

And also leave room for desert. The food court has a lot of options and just like with the mains, walk around and look at the options first and then choose.

If you are in Singapore and want to shop till you drop and then eat till you cant walk anymore, ION Orchard is the place for you and your family!

The food opera is the best place to savor all of the best hawker dishes in Singapore. They gathered and chose the best hawkers to open up their stalls at the opera. I can eat here any day.
