Located in One Banyan mini-island, JustWok replaces the resort’s Simply Veg outlet. As you indulge in a good time and better food, postcard views of the crystalline ocean and swaying palm trees frame the indoor-outdoor restaurant. From delicate cherry blossom patterns on the cutlery to accents of orange and aqua blue hues, there is an overall pleasing aesthetic that leans into the Oriental.

The carefully curated à la carte menu is packed with platters boasting exotic flavours. Aromatic soups, fragrant kimchi, and the daily chef’s special all showcase fresh produce and authentic spices. In the steamed section, you’ll stumble into much-loved Asian favourites, including handmade dim sums filled with shimeji, shittake, cream, and edamame bean dumplings, and classic Har Gaw with beans and prawns.

Justwok offers braised noodles amongst several other hearty dishes as part of its main course.
