In Chinatown there are a number of small restaurants and hawker centres. Unfortunately, many places use soy sauce and oyster sauce that are not gluten free. Chicken or vegetable fried rice dishes should be alright, because soy sauce is not usually added, and salt is the only seasoning, so ask about these. I also found that, in general, Haininese Chicken is gluten free so long as the sauce is not added right at the end.

Grand Copthorne has an Italian restaurant called Pontini. Enjoyed a 6 course dinner prepared by the Head Chef, Domenic Piras. Café Brio’s can also prepare gluten free (probably needs some notice). Email Mas for a booking or enquiry – she was so helpful! FnB@grandcopthorne.com.sg
The Singapore authorities place stringent health checks on all stalls. You’ll find all sorts of Malaysian, Indonesian, Indian and Chinese cuisines available. Thankfully there are lots of photos of food, so you can make an educated guess about what is likely to be gluten free. From there, speak to the staff, and someone will speak English. Make it very clear that you can’t have wheat flour and soy sauce (or any other sauces for that matter). They seemed to understand this well. My favourite standbys were fried rice (many offer delicious seafood fried rice), freshly cooked vegies in the wok and most of the curries are gluten free. I also asked them to wash the wok really well before cooking my food.
