Pushing the boundaries in his cooking, Executive Chef Nasir has added modern twists to the menu with dishes like Wagyu Beef Rendang, Ayam Binjai, Tempoyak Ikan Patin that pairs perfectly well with Nasi Bunga Telang, Permata’s Signature Blue Pea Rice.

Permata Singapore Located at Gedung Kuning

Boasting over 10,000 square feet, Gedung Kuning was built in the late 1850s and it’s exterior was inspired by the Palladian architecture which is a European architectural style that was trendy back in the day. The interior of Gedung Kuning, like the former Istana Kampong Glam next to it, follows the design of a traditional Malay house.

In 1864, the youngest son of the Sultan of Johor, Tengku Mahmud, named his mansion Gedung Kuning which means Yellow Mansion, after its yellow walls. Yellow is a royal colour commonly associated with Malay Sultans.

Fast forward 2021, Gedung Kuning is Singapore’s first Nusantara lifestyle destination with 4 different offerings - Permata Singapore for Nusantara Buffet, Amazing Chambers Singapura, an escape room with games based on Singapore’s history, and we will soon have Weddings and Community Events.
