Jurassic Nest Singapore – 18 Daily Programmed Shows
Jurassic Nest Food Hall comes alive with three hyper-realistic animatronic life-sized dinosaurs 18 times a day across two segments.

Catch the show with free admission every hour from 12pm to 8pm.
In the outdoor alfresco area of JN Café, the stealthy Oviraptor hides in the shadow of another waterfall and comes alive nine times a day at hourly intervals from 11.30am to 7.30pm.
In between, catch 15 other static dinosaurs from the Velociraptor and Dilong Paradoxus to the Corythosaurus and Parasaurolophus, scattered across the food hall while you dine on your favourite foods. There are also adorable dinosaur merchandises sold too!

Amidst the magnificent creatures, seven brands await to dish up delectable Asian cuisine with prices starting from as low as $8.80. Four of them are proudly Michelin-affiliated, making Jurassic Nest the first food hall to have over 50% Michelin-rated food brands.

Took Lae Dee brings authentic Thai flavours as a restaurant chain that has been around since 1972, served through dishes that are prepared a la minute for freshness and quality. Its Chicken Pad Krapow and Tom Yum are comparable to the original ones you’ll find in Thailand.
JN Cafe is Singapore’s happiest family café, serving up a menu catered to the young and young and heart with café favourites including salads, pasta, and sandwiches balanced off with treats like waffles, ice cream and desserts. Miss not its signature dish of Chicken Avocado Croffle.
