Marina Bay Sands Singapore Unveils Revamped RISE Restaurant

Share Article

Marina Bay Sands’ international buffet restaurant, RISE, has re-opened after an extensive transformation, featuring refreshed interior décor along with a brand new culinary offering that includes sustainably sourced produce and themed nights. Eight open-concept kitchens will bring you on a journey through global cuisines, before paying homage to Singapore’s heritage through timeless classics. “Live” cooking stations – from pasta counters to meat carving areas – will spice up the dining experience, while the Bar offers a large selection of wines (including organic varieties), cocktails and juices. A new ‘live’ grill station has been added to dinner service every night, featuring grilled satay, fish and barbeque short ribs. You can also look forward to a rotating line-up of smoked meats every day.

Refreshed Interiors

Taking inspiration from Rising Forest – an art installation of potted trees by renowned sculptor Zheng Chongbin that line the hotel atrium – RISE now bears a new colour palette reflecting nature. The 400-seat establishment’s interiors have taken on hues of emerald blue, jade green, light ash timber and a touch of elegance with bronze. The soothing tones and contemporary interiors offer a warm ambience that blends seamlessly with the canopy of giant indoor trees housed in stoneware ceramic vases. 

The interior, furniture and accessories are designed in flowing and curvilinear forms using natural materials. An undulating timber screen, inspired by flowing rivers, is created to give privacy to guests. Hand-made tiles on the buffet counters facade are a reference to the rattan weaving techniques that pays homage to South-east Asian culture. Dark-stained sustainable bamboo flooring is also used to depict earth and nature, while sculptural lightings around the restaurant resemble the shapes of trees and branches.

The outdoor Herb Garden, which grows over 50 herbs, has inspired creations of cocktail and mocktails at the enhanced Bar. A brand-new soda station, complimentary for guests, allows guests to create their own sodas using fresh herbs such as rosemary and thyme, pairing them with fresh fruits, juices and homemade syrups.

The revamped RISE also goes big on the sustainability theme. Ingredients are sourced from responsible farmers locally and in the region; while recycled or sustainable materials are used for everything from placemats to table settings. All glass, paper, cardboard and plastic materials will be recycled, and food waste collected and broken down into waste water, minimising the amount of solid waste that goes into landfills. Trimmings of the herbs from the Herb Garden are reused as centrepieces in the dining room in place of flowers, ensuring nothing goes to waste.

New Dishes and Themed Buffet Nights

New signature items on the menu are consciously curated with sustainably-sourced produce. These include the Ayam Percik in Tangy Peanut Sauce (Malay grilled chicken), a Javanese dish consisting of candlenut, turmeric and fresh herbs from the herb garden. Locally sourced hormone-free Sakura chicken is marinated for 24 hours before being grilled to perfection in the backyard of RISE.

The Baked Salt Crust Sustainable Barramundi is a delicious and sustainably-sourced fish baked in a crust of salt, dill, lemon, fennel and coriander seeds. The dish uses locally sourced Kuhlbarra Barramundi that is also hormone-free and antibiotic-free.

Enjoy the Home Smoked BBQ Beef Brisket featuring hormone-free beef from Australia marinated with RISE’s special rub and fresh herbs before being cooked over a smoker in the backyard.

You and your loved ones can also dig into the national dish of Singapore with the Singapore Chili Crab, featuring a secret sweet and spicy chilli sauce. These signature dishes will be on the buffet line every day.
