Singapore kid-friendly restaurants where kids eat for free

Every parent has experienced the frustration of having to force-feed their kid so that they’ll finish their food. Been there, done that – not as the parent, but as the fussy little eater.

And paying for a full meal that can’t be finished may put quite a strain on your pocket. So to make eating out with your children a little more enjoyable, here’s a list of restaurants in Singapore with free food for kids.

The kicker? Most of them also have a play area for little ones to exhaust all their energy at so by the time food comes, they’d gobble everything down and leave nothing to waste.

1. Hard Rock Cafe – Kids aged up to 11 years old eat for free

We can never have too many American comfort food joints, especially those that offer a whole lot of classic dishes, drinks, and free kids’ meals like Hard Rock Cafe.

Located in Orchard, this casual cafe serves up an array of wings, pasta, burgers, and BBQ large plates. Think pork ribs, grilled steaks, and beef briskets. There’s also a dynamic list of cocktails, beer, and wine if you need a proper palate cleanser after the greasy feast.

Come by with the kiddos on the weekend from 12pm-5pm and they’ll be able to nab a free kids’ meal (worth $12) when you order a main course from the a la carte menu.

2. Haidilao – Complimentary kids’ platter & fried rice

Dining at the famed hotpot chain Haidilao ain’t the cheapest. However, it dispenses regular freebies like a nail service, soup bases, and kids’ meals so you can feel better about spending hundreds of dollars on steamboat.

The menu here is fresh and extensive, spanning everything from meat and seafood to cooked dishes. Soup wise, the beloved mala soup is pretty satisfying but so spicy it’ll clear your tear ducts.


When you bring the kids along, they’ll be able to choose either a free platter that comes with spinach, noodles, crab sticks, and sausages, or a bowl of fried rice. Toys are also available and free of charge.

3. Ramen Hitoyoshi – Kids under 10 get free ramen

There’s an ocean of ramen restaurants in Singapore. But one that feeds your child for free like Ramen Hitoyoshi is rare.

Veteran ramen chefs who used to helm the kitchen at Keisuke now run the show here so expect quality bowls of noodles. Based on the rave reviews, the tonkotsu broth ramen here seems to be a cult favourite. But we’ve also heard good things about its donburi rice bowls.

Treat yourself to a carb-filled lunch or dinner and your mini plus one will get a free bowl of kids’ ramen. Free and easy. Just make sure you’re dining in at either the City Square Mall or the Sembawang outlet.

While the majority of the bites, bowls, and mains are gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, they still pack some serious flavours. But if you aren’t ready to jump into the deep end of the healthy eating pool, feel free to order the popcorn chicken.
