Glam Singaporean, South East Asian and Cantonese food from a design powerhouse. The man behind it, Song Yuxin (also behind Yu Ba Xian, Peacock Room) has emerged as one of Shanghai’s most innovative Chinese restaurant owners and designers in the last couple of years. He has now turned his attention to Southeast Asia. Particularly Singapore. Lion is very Xintiandi; it’s opulent, clubby and, despite the fancy surrounds and price tag (400rmb per person and up), kind of mass-market. That doesn't mean it's bad. Singaporean food for people who want those strong flavors toned down a little bit and drink cocktails at the same time. Did we mention it looks opulent? It looks opulent. Definitely an "event night" sort of dinner.
