Best non-Hawker asian restaurants close to Raffles hotel

Love all types of asian food. Love all types of restaurants from dives to fancy if they are GREAT. Will be hitting as many Hawker stands as possible but also have a few questions. Is there a great Thai restaurant comparable to Celadon in Bangkok? Or just something really good not as fancy? I figured so close to Thailand must be some killer spots. Also, is Wakughin by Tetsuya fantastic and worth it? Or is it like most of he restaurants in Las Vegas where the chef isn't there and the food is not as good as his flagship restaurant. I like Nobu in USA. Was disappoined with Tojos in Vancouver.
Any other not to be missed spots close to Raffles for something distinctively Singaporean and hard to find in USA or any other recommendations. Thanks in advance.
