Szechwan stripes for the year of the Tiger

Here's all you need to know about Shisen Hanten's Lunar New Year 2022 menu


Highest Michelin-rated Chinese Restaurant in Singapore

A restaurant rooted with a proud culinary history, Shisen Hanten’s story dates back to 1958 when it was founded by Chen Kenmin who is hailed as the “Father of Szechwan cuisine” in Japan. Following his retirement, eldest son, Chen Kenichi took over, gradually expanding the business across Japan with fresh ideas that earned him the “Szechwan Sage”. Taking over the legacy is third-generation Executive Chef, Chen Kentaro. Mentored by his father from young, Chef Kentaro’s knowledge is one that’s passed down and honed over the years. With his keen expertise in traditional Chinese fare, he has continued to elevate signature flavours of Shisen Hanten which eventually earned him two Michelin stars across 2016 – 2018, thus making it the highest Michelin-rated Chinese restaurant.


Festive set menus for all group sizes

As the year of the Tiger creeps close, Shisen Hanten by Chef Kentaro has launched a range of eight auspiciously-themed set menus for both intimate gatherings or business dinners designed to satiate 2 to 5 pax.


Seasonal specials to celebrate Spring

For diners with specific favourites from the restaurant, selected springtime exclusives from the festive set menus are also made available on the Lunar New Year a la carte menu so diners can customize a feast of their own.


Festive goodies at home
