If you are a durian lover, then you will know how hard it is to find the best durian in Singapore. There are so many types and brands of durians out there that it becomes difficult to choose one. Not only do Singaporeans have difficulty picking the right one for themselves, but also when they want to purchase them as gifts for friends or family members who live outside of Singapore. So we’ve done some research on where people can get their hands on the best durians from all across Singapore. This blog post will introduce you to some of the best durian deliveries in Singapore, all so you can spend less time searching and more time enjoying your favourite fruit!
1. Durian Delivery Singapore
|Contact Details||+65 90172853|
Without a doubt, this is the greatest durian delivery service in Singapore. The durian delivery service has significantly improved over the years. It guarantees the fastest delivery of creamy, delectable durian in sixty minutes. The service is not subject to a minimum order and is the only one in Singapore that provides substitutes for poor durians.
The premium fruit is creamy, rich, and has a bitter depth to its flavours. The gorgeous golden-yellow flesh is incredibly creamy and buttery, which is what drew us in and had us plucking up seed after seed. Additionally, because the seeds are flat and tiny, there is proportionately more creamy custard flesh to savour. Additionally, it was packed in their airtight packages and took two hours to arrive after dehusking, but the taste was comparable to the husked durians from the other booths. Indeed, we felt as though the durians tasted much better here!
2. Combat Durian
|Address||249 Balestier Road, S329714|
|Opening hours||Daily, 12pm – 9pm|
Mr Ang, a durian vendor in his 70s, will serve you at Combat Durian. He ingeniously developed the name “Combat Durian” as a play on the term “come back,” implying that he intends for consumers to return for more durians following a tasty round at Combat Durian. While their durians are more expensive, we agree that with a higher price comes a higher quality.
While durians sell out rapidly, consumers may still get their hands on the freshest batch when their new batch arrives at 5 p.m. daily. If you’re dining in, the stall owners supply mineral water and even tissues in the seated area, although a fairly small one along the back alley that may become hot throughout the day. If you want to avoid the messy aftermath of durian consumption, this is one of our suggested dining establishments.
3. Ah Seng Durian
|Address||Ghim Moh Market and Food Centre, 20 Ghim Moh Road, #01-119/122, S270020|
|Opening hours||Mon – Fri: 1.30pm – 8.30pm|
Sat – Sun: 1.30pm – 6.30pm
Ah Seng Durian is definitely one of the most well-known durian booths in Singapore, having grown in popularity over the years to become a hot favourite among residents of Singapore’s western side.
Located inconspicuously within a wet market, there is a sign at the stall’s entrance to ensure that guests do not miss it. Additionally, there is no eating area nearby, forcing guests to line in the cramped room to order and receive their durians.
When I placed my purchase, I was asked if I preferred the sweet or bitter breed. However, the sweetness was not as noticeable in the “sweet” ones I tried, but the bitter ones were rather good, with their custardy texture and strong bitter flavour. However, the seeds were rather big, and as a result, the durians were less fleshy.
They provide a range of durians at affordable rates, ranging from the well-known Mao Shan Wang, Golden Phoenix, Black Pearl, D13, and D17 to the lesser-known Green Bamboo and Tek Kah. Ah Seng, the proprietor, personally visits their plantations to guarantee that the durians sold in their stores are of the finest quality. Apart from the variety, Ah Seng’s durians are of exceptional quality. However, be prepared to line for hours during peak durian season.
4. JoJo Durian
Jojo Durian is another well-known and reputable name for durian delivery. They ensure the freshness of high-demand durians such as red prawn, mao shan wang, whang Zong whang, and d24 durian set. They offer weekly delivery timeslots, so it is best to verify the slot that is most convenient for you on their website before buying.
Jojo Durian guarantees that all durians served are of the highest quality and are worth every cent. For more information about their offers and services, as well as fantastic nutritional data regarding durian fruit, you may visit their Facebook page.
5. Lele durian Singapore
|Address||01-24, The Yards 406 Joo Chiat Pl Singapore 428084|
|Contact Details||+65 9694 8584|
This supermarket shop in Singapore has been delivering high-quality durians to its clients for three decades. The freshness and quality of lele durian, together with prompt delivery, are well worth the price. They provide a variety of durians and frequently have seasonal specials.

6. 99 Old Trees (99老树)
|Address||46 Owen Rd, #01-277, Singapore 210046|
|Opening hours||Daily, 12pm – 10pm|
99 Old Trees is centrally placed in Farrer Park and sources its durians directly from trees cultivated in the fertile soils of Bentong and Raub in Pahang, Malaysia.
One of our favourite spots for all things durian, we were intrigued by their omakase-style sessions (SukaWa), which include endless pieces of MSW and D24 Sultan durian, as well as house-made durian sweets such as Durian Mousse and Durian Choux. Additionally, they provide MSW ice cream, which will induce a huge durian coma! We appreciated the spacious and completely air-conditioned dining room, as well as the clean gloves, tissue, and water supplied for a nice durian eating experience.
The Durians have a thicker, harder, and drier flesh that smells less aromatic. However, biting into the creamy, golden yellow flesh exposes a strong dose of bitterness, while keeping a pleasant moderate sweetness that balances off the harsh flavour.
The durian omakase session, hosted by their director Kevin Tan, typically lasts around an hour and will take place every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 4 p.m. with only eight seats available every session. Keep an eye on their website for more information and to make session bookings. It is without a doubt the place to go for limitless portions of your favourite fruit when the cravings strike!
