Path Restaurant @ Marina Bay Financial Centre - Paving The Path To A Vivid Modern Asian Dining Experience


Path Restaurant at Marina Bay Financial Centre is the newest and exciting opening in the F&B scene. The modern Asian restaurant is Chef Marvas Ng's inaugural restaurant in partnership with 1855 F&B. The food at Path is a multi-layered experience. Each dish is a seamless composition of French fine-dining techniques and presentation, using comforting East Asian flavours.

Wakamatsu Strait Yellowtail 4.2/5

Our dinner at Path started with the light and refreshing Wakamatsu Strait Yellowtail ($36). The clean tasting sashimi is brightened by the pickled Chinese artichoke and zucchinis, whetting the appetite for the next course.

Hand-Dived Hokkaido Scallop 4/5


Next is the Hand-Dived Hokkaido Scallop ($58) served and cooked at the tableside. The sashimi-graded scallops from Hokkaido are seared on a hot stone, topped with sakura ebi and cooked with a seaweed truffle sauce. The scallop was plump and sweet. The touch of theatrical completes the whole experience. It is paired with Pickled Kombu Pumpkin Salad, refreshing up the palate.

Premium Kuhlbarra Fish Maw 4.5/5

The Premium Kuhlbarra Fish Maw ($35) is a new culinary experience. It is my first time eating fish maw this way. It showcases the chef's philosophy incorporating the premium Asian ingredients in a collagen-rich Douxi caviar sauce with fresh greens. It is a dish packed with complex and rich flavours, finished with delightful textural finishing.

"Suan Ni" Hong Man 4/5

It is my first time having the eel with the spinal cord intact, and more even how it is cooked in a braising sauce that consists of garlic and Dou Ban Jiang. The "Suan Ni" Hong Man ($24) reminds me of the traditional Chinese dish, Suan Ni Bai Rou boosting with garlic aroma.


French Organic Cauliflower 4.2/5

This is probably the best cauliflower steak I have eaten. The French Organic Cauliflower ($24) is braised in vegetable stock till soft and tender and then deep-fried for exterior crispiness. A layer of mayonnaise is coated around the cauliflower and then topped with house-blend furikake and buckwheat seasoning for that extra lift in flavouring.

Crispy Japanese Amadai 4.5/5

The Crispy Japanese Amadai ($75) is a beautiful dish paired with black bean beurre blanc. It is the same sauce used for the fish maw dish. However, I find the sauce complements the fish better. In addition, the crispy scales on the skin provided that extra textural enjoyment.

Signature Butter-Roasted Herb-Brined French Poulet $72

A highlight at Path is the Signature Butter-Roasted Herb-Brined French Poulet ($72). Before roasting in the oven, the chicken is brined with Chinese herbs and then coated with 800 to 1000gm of butter. This result is a beautiful and tender chicken infused with butter and herbs. To appreciate the chicken further, you can have it with the butter chicken jus sauce and scallion salsa.

Daikon Sword Leaf Lettuce Roll

Chef Marvas's mum would always serve salad with roasted chicken as a child. So in creating this memory, Chef Marvas introduces the Daikon Sword Leaf Lettuce Roll to go with the Signature Butter-Roasted Herb-Brined French Poulet. The sharp and refreshing salad helps to cut the richness.

Signature Wild Forest Mushroom Donabe with Premium Japanese Rice 4.5/5


If you need your carbs, I would highly recommend the Signature Wild Forest Mushroom Donabe with Premium Japanese Rice ($38). Each mouthful of the fragrant rice is brimming with an abundance of flavours and textures from the oats, waxed meat, porcini mushrooms and vegetables.

Whiskey Bombe Alaska 4/5

Wrapping up our dinner, we have two desserts - Whiskey Bombe Alaska ($28) and French Canele ($18 for 3pc). Go for the whiskey ice cream served with Kirsch marmalade and meringue for something sweet and light. However, what intrigues me is the french canele made with Chinese Bai Jiu (white wine). Baked to perfection, it comes with a crusty exterior, soft and fluffy interior with a tad of the fragrant bai jiu.

French Canele 4.5/5

Path restaurant is definitely an exciting addition to the dining scene offering modern Asian cuisine. Chef Marvas brings a precise balance between French finesse and the East Asian ingredients that feel and taste sumptuous yet possess a reassuring familiarity that warms the heart.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
