Now that trolley service has all but disappeared on the London dim sum scene it was a real treat to see it in action in Singapore. A decent selection of both steamed and fried dim sum, the usual suspects like ha gau and siu mai but a few unusual dishes I had not seen before too. If you couldn't see... More

We love Yum cha and whilst what we had was OK we expected better. Yum Cha in Auckland NZ is a lot lot better quality. As other reviewers have noted the escalator is still not fixed and the entrance to the restaurant is off a side street amidst stalls up a steep flight of stairs.l;The trolleys come around and you...

The restaurant was located at the second floor of the shophouse. Although it was weekday, it was packed with lots of tourists. Menu was a single 2 sided tick list. I was showed to a table by the window. Although there was power under the table, it was not working. So don't plan to charge your hp while eating. Pumpkin... More

Visited this restaurant ten years ago and had happy memories. This visit found the food much the same. A good selection of yum Cha and mains. Service was adequate and fast. We arrived late morning and by the time we left, about 1.00pm, the tables were mostly taken. Entry to this restaurant can be confusing as the street entrance is... More

This is a great place for dim sum, but not if you’re a novice. It’s too crowded to bring around carts so you can see what you’re getting. So you order everything off a paper menu by noting how many of a particular dish you want. So if you don’t mind the noise and can go with someone who knows... More

We had a good quantity of dim sum and we spent considerable amount of time in the restaurant. I must say, the service was simply impeccable. They took care to attend to every single detail; including ensuring that we ate the item while it was hot; and ensuring that our tea cups were always filled. I was impressed and touched.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
