Hi everyone, this is Nigel here. Founder Bak Kut Teh will be shutting down if the situation doesn’t get better in the next 2 months. It has been a really good 42 years… but the truth is, we might not make it for the many more 42 years to come.


In this last attempt to save our brand, we will give over 30% off curated sets for dine-in customers from 17 July to 17 August at selected outlets. This special discount is to thank you for your support during Circuit Breaker (we couldn’t have lasted this long without you) and to encourage you and your family to dine with us.

我们恳切请求大家给予支持,不让42年的努力付诸东流。发起人肉骨茶首次推出折扣超过30%的特备家庭套餐,从7月17日至8月17日,在发起人肉骨茶Hotel Boss, Bugis 和 Downtown East 分店。这项特别促销是为了感激大家在阻断措施期间的支持(如果没有你们的支持,我们无法坚持到现在),希望能鼓励大家再次上门。您的下一餐,对我们很重要。

We sincerely seek your support to not let our 42 years of hard work go in vain. Please save our brand, the jobs of our numerous employees and our heritage. 🙏 It’ll mean a lot to us if you can share this post, we promise to serve you with our very best.

In order to keep you safe while practising social distancing measures, please make reservations before visiting us.
