Jurassic Nest: The Newest Dinosaur Themed Food Hall in Singapore

Starting November 18th 2022, Jurassic Nest has opened its doors to welcome the general public to eat in the company of 18 fearsome dinosaurs! With gorgeous animatronic dinosaurs all around you, it feels like a scene from Jurassic Park, but unlike the movie, you can take a selfie with a T-Rex without worrying about it biting you.

Jurassic Nest is the first restaurant of its sort in Singapore and the newest addition to Gardens by the Bay’s dining options. It is a family-friendly entertainment and lifestyle attraction in addition to a Michelin-rated and themed food hall. Every day, there are multi-sensory programming from 12 to 8 o’clock, so you can get a chance to see these dinosaurs come to life. The surrounding gardens are also explored via an educational walk that teaches you intriguing details about some of the earliest varieties of flora and fauna that date back to prehistoric times.
