After a major refurbishment exercise, the basement of One Raffles Place (formerly known as OUB Centre) has been transformed into a food haven featuring more than 40 food outlets.
Ngon means “delicious” in Vietnam and that is exactly what this restaurant hopes to achieve: bringing you “Deliciously Vietnam” (that’s their slogan) food.

Ngon also offers set lunch promotion which includes main course, 2 pieces deep-fried spring rolls and a drink.
Lemongrass is a signature Vietnsmese drink, but it is mostly served as lemongrass tea rather than this lemongrass drink which is really diluted sugar syrup with an almost-negligible hint of lemongrass.
Deep Fried Spring Roll looks kind of sad in a corner of the plate. I wish there could have been some garnish in the form of a small salad to balance the oiliness of the spring rolls. I can’t complain taste-wise with the delicious radish filling.
Beef Slices (Medium) has a full-bodied broth and well-cooked noodles. The beef slices are fresh and tender. Altogether, a statisfying bowl that will keep you warm in both body and spirit.
Ngon is the only the second Vietnamese restaurant that I have tried so far so I can’t really say which is better, but Vietnamese cuisine is definitely something I sang to explore further.
