Address: Orchard Wing Level 35, Mandarin Orchard, 333 Orchard Road, 238867

The newest Sichuan restaurant on Orchard Road features a chef from Japan who proudly carries on a family tradition that started when the first of the famed Shisen Hanten chain of restaurants opened in Japan in 1958. Grandson of Chen Kenmin who is regarded as Japan’s “Father of Szechwan Cuisine” and son of celebrity Iron Chef Chen Kenichi who is nicknamed “The Szechwan Sage,” Chen Kentaro brings to Singapore his grandfather’s vision of contributing to a greater appreciation of Sichuan cuisine through Shisen Hanten’s signature dishes.

Shisen Hanten by Chen Kentaro celebrates the seven basic flavours of Sichuan cuisine: sour, pungent, hot, sweet, bitter, aromatic and salty.

Highlights not to be missed include Chen’s Mapo Doufu, Chen’s Original Spicy Noodle Soup, Stewed Fish Fillet in Spicy Szechwan Chilli Pepper, and Deep-fried Chicken in Spicy Szechwan Chilli Pepper.

The dim sum buffet at Shisen Hanten is a little different from other hotel chinese restaurants. It's a Sichuan Chinese restaurant features a chef from Japan. Their Appetisers, Desserts and Peking Duck are served at buffet table! Complimentary 6 Head Whole Abalone was served 1 time too! You can select 3 choices of main course under the chef selections, 1 selection of rice or noodle, as well as unlimited dim sum!


Please remember to try Stir Fried Pork Collar with Superior Soya Sauce and Stir Fried Mashed Fish Noodles with XO Sauce & Seafood!


The service here was great, tea was always refilled promptly and the staff were mostly very polite. The plates that they used for the main dishes were very unique. Most of the food and dessert here were quite high quality except the peking duck needs some improvement in the exterior pancake and the mashed fish noodles a tad too salty. Other than that, Shisen Hanten is definitely one of the most comfortable places for dim sum buffet!

I'm not much of a fan for sichuan a.k.a "ma la" cuisine. Hot & spicy foods are fine with me but when the hotness/spiciness numbs the tastesbuds, I don't believe you're actually eating.  I didn;t google the name before agreeing to head to this establishment initially coz it didn't sound like anything I wouldn't like hence imagine the shock when i sat down the first time and looked through the menu! Having said that I've been back a grand total of 3 times and that says a lot.

The food here is more balanced for sichuan lightweights like me. I can actually taste what I'm actually eating. The resturant is also set up nicely on the 35th floor with easy access from the mall. One thing we noted though. Service is suffering from a laspe. on my last visit, it appears they are fairly well staffed but somehow we had to always ask for tea refills or take a long time to grab someone's attention for orders. I don't profess to know what is going on here so i'll let it be a note for you to temper expectations.

Overall though, food and ambience are great. 4 stars overall instead of 5 for the service laspe.
