Kids and Friendly Restaurants with Play Facilities

IMM Playground
Kids friendly restaurants in Singapore these days come with kid's meal, baby chairs and utensils, crayons with paper and even complimentary toys to keep the little ones entertained.

Some of these children friendly restaurants even have a playground or play area to keep kids busy or are located at strategic spots where the playgrounds are.

We have compiled more than 20 restaurants of these children friendly restaurants with or near such facilities to keep the kids busy while the adults get to eat.


I love malls with playground, especially when it is within close proximity of nice restaurants and cafes. IMM is one of my favorites. An interesting dry playground that is sheltered and a wet playground that offers hours of fun for kids is on level 3 at IMM Garden Plaza.

Restaurants right beside the playgrounds are:

Long Beach Sea Food
Yummy sea food restaurant with the entrance close to the garden plaza but short distance from where the action is.

Hoshi Japanese Restaurant
Nice Japanese food are served here. It comes with glass windows with a view to the playground.

Bagus Food Court
Opposite Hoshi. Nice fried hokkien noodles and hala food can be found here. Both Bagus and Hoshi have a public mall area where several coin operated toys are.

On the 2nd level of IMM, besides Kids Mall there is

Ichiban Sushi
