I am not sure why they say the listing at Marina Square is closed, but the dinner we had there yesterday was one of the better meals we had during our stay in Singapore. We opted for the healty set for two, which came with four dishes and a rice for SG$50 plus taxes, which we thought was quite reasonable.... More

Once you have worked up an appetite shopping in Vivocity I suggest you find your way to Dian Xiao Er. Their roast duck is excellent! It was definitely a crowd pleaser! We also had braised mushroom in Chinese wine, a lotus flower dish with their yummy fried rice. Definitely hit the spot!!

Great quick lunch at Dian Xiao Er. We had the house special herbal duck and the prawn and calamari sambal. Both were delicious. This is a tasty spot for lunch in Vivo City.

Fantastic food aside..it's the service that stood out. From the attentiveness to how well the team worked together. It made the food experience more enjoyable.

1 of the more reliable places to eat, and famous for their herbal ducks (3 choices). I also usually order their lotus root with macademia nuts, which is good and interesting. This time, had their mongolian spare ribs for the 1st time and it provides a kick. A fast casual restaurant in a surbuban mall
