Our Vision


The ServiceWorld Group is privileged to manage the Yip Cheong Fun Heritage Gallery Restaurant. Besides maintaining high standards of food quality and service, the Group hopes to promote photography and enhance awareness of the role of photography as an art form and a scientific tool to depict and record the changes in our cultural and social environment. The late Mr Yip Cheong Fun is of world renown as a documentary photographer and a seascape specialist. The Legacy of the huge collection of the creative works of this Master Lensman will be an inspiration to young photographers in the world.



Events & Activities


For a start, the following programmes have been planned :


The Cuisine


We specialise in both traditional local, Chinese and Western dishes at the Restaurant. Call in advance if you wish to be served by chefs for Philippines and Indian Curry Dishes.


ServiceWorld is not just well known for its photo galleries and hostels. In the Seventies, at the Ministry of Social Affairs and at Dempsey Road, our food outlets served the best Indian curry of Tank Road fame. We no longer run the Kapalaran Centre at Chin Swee Road, but we still serve delicious Filipino food at the Yip Cheong Fun Heritage Gallery Restaurant.
