Amazing Castle has opened their first ever overseas branch at Cineleisure Orchard. The air-conditioned indoor playspace has 9 different stations combining traditional arcade games and classic playground mechanics with a modern technological twist. Enjoy this new playground for all ages.
Amazing Castle is a new interactive entertainment concept. Short, sharp and sweet, it is designed to challenge both your skill and intellect. It is technology enabled but unabashedly analogue. Designed to be wickedly fun for groups of up to 3 people - they mix and match a route from 9 different challenges to bring your fun to the next level.
Cineleisure, the destination mall managed by Cathay Organisation, is proud to unveil its refreshed look, while welcoming three new and exciting concepts.
Forming a striking visual interplay of colours and textures, the revamped Cineleisure reveals interiors fitted with concrete juxtaposed against rustic wood timber. The playful balance between gritty accents and polished design, with a purposeful blend of warm earthy hues and cool steel palettes, add a distinctively dynamic element to the popular youth-oriented mall.
The pairing of fun and playful elements also extends to its eclectic mix of food, fashion, and entertainment tenants. This April, Cineleisure welcomes the addition of three new and hotly anticipated concepts—Tenkaichi Japanese BBQ and Shabu Shabu, The Alley Luxe, and Amazing Castle, of which the latter two are making its debut in Singapore
Tenkaichi Japanese BBQ & Shabu Shabu at the newly-revamped Cineleisure promises both authenticity and affordability for a gourmet Japanese Yakiniku experience. Hungry shoppers can expect a premium buffet at just S$59.90, which includes a free flow of Tenkaichi’s signature grilled Wagyu Beef that are hand sliced and freshly served to order.
Alternatively, for a limited time only, customers can opt for its value-for-money and irresistible S$10 Donburi sets, ranging from Chirashi Don, Wagyu Beef Yakiniku Don, Hotate Mentai Mayo Don and Cheesy Chicken Teriyaki Don.
Something special is brewing. Having opened its very first outlet in 2013, The Alley has made waves with their iconic Brown Sugar Deerioca Series. With over 300 outlets around the world, The Alley is finally making its mark in Singapore with their first flagship store, and first ever premium concept – The Alley Luxe, opening at Cineleisure this April!
The Alley is proud to offer tapioca pearls made by hand and with heart. The Alley welcomes you to watch as they prepare our tapioca from scratch: from the measuring, sifting, and mixing of ingredients to the formation of the pearl-shaped tapioca. Through this manual performance, they deliver soft, chewy tapioca available in various unique flavours.
Every beverage from The Alley has a story of more than 500 days starting from the harvest of the tea leaves, the processing and aging of the leaves, the infusion of flavours to the selection of ingredients and their ratios. Their distinctive drinks are attributed to this process, in order for you to enjoy only the finest flavours. With each cup comes its own aroma, taste, and character.
The Alley Luxe at Cineleisure will also be serving up an array of exquisite baked treats such as croissants, cruffins and kouign-amann. You can opt to take-away or dine-in to savour these buttery treats with the signature beverages.
Chill Gen is a new Hong Kong Hot Pot Buffet concept by Xin Wang Hong Kong Café.
Chill Gen offers a variety of soup bases that appeal to a wide range of customers such as the Signature Papaya Hot Pot Soup, Korean Army Stew, Classic Homemade Fragrant Spicy Soup and Tomato Soup.
Besides their Hot Pot Buffet, Chill Gen also serves an array of delicious Hong Kong comfort food for diners such Pork Chop & Egg Papaya Soup Rice Vermicelli, Luncheon Meat Soup Instant Noodle and more.
Located just below the Benjamin Barker (BB) store @ Cineleisure, Benjamin Barker Café is designed to integrate the lifestyle concept of BB as its food-loving, coffee-drinking (and equally well-dressed) other half of the prolific local menswear label.
Setting to be the brand's Asian debut combining Fashion and F&B, the 60-seater café in this 3,000 sq ft two-storey establishment is all about the gastronomic good things in life — classic comfort fare, all-day breakfast and weekend brunches.
The café mimics the stylish BB-inspired interiors with its rich, navy blue colour palette, white marble-top counters, sleek timber furniture, and an eye-catching neon sign. Completed with calming lighting and minimalist decor, it is designed as a space for like-minded creatives and individuals to meet, exchange cultures, ideas and experiences over a mean cup of espresso and a hearty brunch selection. Testament to the ethos of BB, personnel are fitted out in crisp white shirts and knit ties designed by BB's in-house designers, paired with classic denim jeans and leather-strapped aprons.
With one half of the café’s founders spending time in his youth as a barista and manager in a Melbourne café, and the other with a coveted apprenticeship under one of Italy’s greatest pizza masters in Naples, it comes as no surprise that Benjamin Barker Café’s signatures include coffee and pizzas, such as White Cold Brew and Laksa Pizza. As a nod to the brand’s dedication of offering high quality fare, Benjamin Barker Café uses premium Gryphon tea, Matchaya tea blend from Kyoto and robust Papa Palheta coffee beans. The menu also features other delectable offerings of al dente pastas, satisfying mains, burgers, brunch signatures such as the BB Brunch, Crab Cake Benedict and a lip-smacking range of homemade desserts, in particular the indulgent waffles.
B Burger. The perfect encapsulation of feel good vibes with a smattering of youthful abandon.
Now open at Orchard Cathay Cineleisure.
B Burger serves up mind-blowing burgers that combine classic American deliciousness with a burst of Japanese flavours. Expect sides (that really, in fact, shine like mains) like mentaiko fries and sriracha mayo chicken wings with diner-style desserts like frozen concretes and toasted marshmallow milkshakes.
Japan-listed lifestyle and entertainment company Koshidaka Holdings, opens its Asian karaoke flagship outlet in Orchard Cineleisure. Termed Ganso (which means Founder or Pioneer), this Manekineko outlet will be the seventh in Singapore and the largest in Asia, with 80 newly furnished karaoke rooms, 5 VIP rooms with pool tables and a 150 pax capacity function hall for holding company and private events.
Koshidaka Holdings made in-roads into Singapore in September 2015 when it launched its Manekineko Karaoke Chain, after acquiring shares in K Box Entertainment. K Box is a subsidiary of Koshidaka Holdings. By establishing Manekineko in Singapore as a proven business model and showcase, Koshidaka Holdings hopes to springboard its expansion into ASEAN within the coming year, with plans to introduce outlets in Europe and North America as well. Here in Singapore, they will continue to proactively scout for suitable locations to expand the chain. Koshidaka Holdings, which has more than 400 stores from Hokkaido to Okinawa, is the first Karaoke chain from Japan to embark on overseas expansion. Its initial foray was into Korea, where it currently has thirteen outlets.
Ganso Manekineko Orchard Cineleisure features rooms that are bright and vibrant in four coloured theme zones (orange, green, blue and red), each adorned with illustrations of the mascot cat. Targeted at young adults, families and even senior citizens, prices are kept affordable (from $12 nett onwards for three hours) with free-flow soft drinks, snacks and ice cream included. Manekineko @ Orchard Cineleisure will also be the only karaoke outlet in Singapore to offer a buffet spread for lunch on weekends and dinner daily so that customers will have a more fulfilling experience, singing and eating to their hearts’ content. Its Singapore chef has also come up with a new ala carte menu, to include local favourites such as Laksa, Braised Pork Knuckle and Chicken Rendang, to name a few.
