Royal Noodle (皇帝面) – Raffles Place, Singapore


This newly opened noodle restaurant is the latest addition to Circular Road’s stretch of F&B outlets. Located somewhere in the middle of the stretch of shophouses, I must say the owners are pretty gutsy to just sell noodles where rental is really hefty. I really applause them for that. I met up with a fellow foodie at this place and wanna try what they have to offer. See pics below:


Lovely ambience with a little history of China


Choice of how you want your noodles to be done.


View from where we were sitting


Very unique bowl of rich broth noodles with minced meat, peanuts, etc and a serving of soy bean curd. Love the part when you scoop the bean curd with the soup and send it in your mouth… mmmm….


Love the noodles here… a little like ramen but it’s la mian according to the boss


Look who’s the happy one! 🙂


The side dishes are really yummy, served hot and crispy!


Look at how much filling is there in every fried wonton!


Each bowl is in the shape of an ingot, signifying the olden China, where noodles originated from.

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: I chose the soup version while my friend took the spicy dry version. My soup was very tasty and rich, similar to the Szechuan dan dan noodles minus the sesame paste inside. Noodles were a little cross between ramen and Chinese la mian. Nevertheless every spoonful is full of flavour. The spicy dry version is spicy but not THAT spicy but generally should be spicy for many people. My friend liked it though.

Portion: The normal portioning is quite good. Just nice for me.

Service: Self-service.

Ambience: Comfy, aircon environment.

Price: S$9.50 per set of noodles with runny yolk egg.

RTE: Could be because I’ve tasted a lot of better noodles in China, I will return only when I’m around that area.

Location: 27 Circular Road. Opening Hours: Mon-Fri – 11.30am to 2.30pm, 10pm to 4am. Sat – 10pm to 4am. https://www.facebook.com/royalnoodle
