Do not visit this place unless you are looking to get treated like garbage. The food was good and came through quickly. The service is the worst I have ever experienced in Singapore. The staff was extremely rude and aside from other poor exchanges, when...I tried to get the manager to split the charge between 2 cards, he pretended not to listen, ignored, and when I insisted, he dismissively waved his hand and took a single card to charge it. Terrible place, I hope they close down.More

A typical Chinese, set up by native Chinese. Recommend the xiao long pao, fish, fried rice. Pretty crowded and we called to book. Don't expect good service here, mostly Chinese native staffs.

I was at your Jalan Besar restaurant earlier, service is bad and no system. Food didn’t arrive after 45 mins, the customer that came later got their food 1st. When I asked the service staff about she keep asking me to wait and I have...to ask her 3 times about my order. She repeated the same answer to me to wait again. Disappointed with the service and left without eating.More

Have try their main dish and side dish like Xiao long bao or zha jiang mian. Would say that the side dish or 小吃 is much better. Service was good.

Hand In Hand was founded in Singapore in 2004. l recall a similiar food outlet at the same location some years back with a different name. Finally had the opportunity to test out the food with my wife. We ordered Xiao Long Bao,fried dumpling with...squid filling and fried bee hoon. The XLB was good but not as good as the other top ones. The fried dumpling with squid filling was black,most likely to give impression of squid black ink? The fried bee hoon was good but the clam shells in the item made the dish a frustrating experience. Relayed our dissatisfaction to the waiter. In any case, this is a good place for chinese traditional snacks without landing in China.More

Went for dinner on a Saturday night (7pm) without reservations, we had to wait for a little while as the restaurant was full. A few hits and misses with this place, some of the dishes were good while others were not so fantastic. We ordered...xiao long baos, sour and spicy soup, dan dan noodles, fried dumplings and a pork dish. Soup tasted pretty bland, a disappointing order as I was looking forward to that the most. The xiao long baos were good, came out piping hot and the meat inside was marinated just right. The pork dish was also good, although the portion was big for just 2 people. The sauce for the dan dan noodles was really good as well, I loved the noodles alot! The fried dumpling was good too, not too doughy but I didn't really like the amount of leek in there; did not really taste much meat in there. Service was not that great though, maybe due to the lack of manpower? There was alot of confusion with table sittings, which we realised throughout the time we were there. Ordering was pretty mixed up as well - there were no clear instructions on the ordering process and it took quite some time to get our orders done. But the staff were friendly, despite the chaos. I would go back there again, with more friends so we can share more food. There were alot of food which we did not get to try as the portions seem big. Pricing for each dish is also quite reasonable, so it will not burn a hole in your wallet.More

Got to know of this place from a relative, but have never been 'til this day. Was excited to find out that I can redeem Burpple Beyond deals here & so I redeemed one of each kind: Noodles/Rice, & Griddle Cooked Dish. For the former,...you have to match noodles-to-noodles, rice-to-rice; that is, you can't order a noodle & get a rice for free. Also, these are valid for the Small sized portions, not anything larger. We ordered the Yang Zhou Fried Rice 扬州炒饭 ($6.80++) & Seafood Fried Rice 海鲜炒饭 ($7.00++). I didn't find them very special, in fact quite similar in taste & both are on the oily side. Prices for the noodles are fairly reasonable even without the Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deal; I would like to try their other noodles sometime. Unfortunately, the Burpple Beyond deals are only valid 'til the end of Jun 2019.. But I'm not too concerned, because after I had a taste of everything we ordered, what impressed me the most were the pork dumplings & Xiao Long Baos, i.e. the items that weren't on Burpple Beyond to begin with! Wait, what!? Yes, I actually preferred the dumplings. The skin is so soft & pleasant to bite into, with the ingredients inside firm & not too salty. I really would just come back for these alone. They come in batches of 8, & I would happily eat 3 x 8 = 24 pieces in a heartbeat 😂 We had: · Xiao Long Bao 小笼汤包 ($8.00++ for 8 pieces) - amazing amount of soup inside, I just have to say this 😍 · Dumplings with White Cabbage 白菜猪肉水饺 ($5.00++) · Four Seasons Pork Dumplings 四季豆猪肉水饺 ($5.00++) The Preserved Eggs Beancurd 皮蛋豆腐 ($5.80++) was a light & easy appetizer that was served to us first. The pungent yet creamy century egg contrasts well with the silky soft beancurd. The chilli sauce is also pretty bomb; tingles slightly on my I-only-selectively-eat-somewhat-spicy-food tongue in a welcoming way. Great way to kick start your meal, though I felt the ratio of ingredients was disproportionate. Would've loved more century egg to go with my beancurd. The Shrimp Cabbage Pie 虾皮圆白菜素馅饼 ($10.00++, 4 pieces) was another appetizer that we ordered - it came on a plate of 3. My mum was quick to notice it, but by the time she voiced it out they were already preparing a 4th one in the kitchen. Kudos to them for that. I am not a fan of fried food, but I ate a quarter of this & found myself reaching for another quarter. Yes, it's oily because it's fried, but IMHO there was a nice balance between the crispy exterior & doughy interior, as well as a good ratio between the dough & the ingredients inside. These were served piping hot & fresh as well. Not bad! The Double Boiled Soup with Amaranth 金银蛋上汤枧菜 ($15.80++) was comforting, but nothing spectacular. I do wish they'd served the fried rice first so we could eat all these dishes with the rice.... But it came last. The Egg White with Scallop, Crab Meat & Broccoli 京都赛螃蟹 ($22.80++, Medium) was a hefty medium portion. We were advised to add vinegar to the mix & toss it around for better flavours - which is a great idea to bring the flavours out. There actually isn't much broccoli inside as I though there'd be, but a whole lot of shredded scallop, crab meat & egg white in the middle. When we were done with the broccoli, we "saved" the remaining white mix to mix in to our fried rice 😂 I found the 2 dishes we ordered from the Griddle Cooked Dish menu fairly ordinary. I didn't like how the Stewed Chicken en Casserole with Three Cups Sauce 砂锅三杯鸡 ($15.80++) used bone-in chicken, but that's really because I'm a lazy eater. My grandpa seemed to enjoy it though, perhaps it reminded him of my late grandma. I preferred the Griddled Sautéed Vegetables 干锅地三鲜 ($10.80++) out of the 2, with the ingredients such as the beans & lotus root nicely cooked, still having a crunch to them. However this was really oily for me, & oily food makes me uncomfortable, so I'd give this a miss the next time. 💳 Accepts credit cards 🌬 Air-conditioned seats available ☀ Al fresco seats available 🍽 Burpple Beyond partner (until 30 Jun 2019) 📱 Accepts FavePay 🖥 Accepts reservations - I used Quandoo via Shopback 🧻 Wet tissue costs 50¢ each 💦 Water is chargeableMore

This small eatery is a little off the radar but serves juicy potstickers (aka guotie/ gyozas), meat soup dumplings (aka xiao long bao) and crispy beef buns (aka roubao). Appetizers are worth a try too though the mains may be skipped. Dine here if you...want to experience a little piece of Beijing in Singapore, without hurting your wallet.More

I don't really fancy Beijing food as I thought there are too salty and oily. I was wrong as this Beijing restaurant is so different from others. Their Xio Long Pau (pork soup dumplings) are much better than the famous Taiwanese restaurant chain in Singapore...as pointed out by my guest. The homemade tofu was a delightful. The meat pie was excellent. The pea sprout was crunch and fresh. Service was good and the price reasonable. Not fine dining but definitely a great restaurant.More
