Walked in and it was fairly busy with locals and some tourists. A good sign. Fast service. Order from menu by ticking off what you want. Food arrives quick and all tasted fine. Cheap meal - around $45 aus with drinks and at least 12 dishes of usual yum cha fair. Highly recommend when visiting china town

If you are looking for good, fresh and affordable dim sum, pop by here anytime. If you are driving, suggest you park along Temple Street and pop over. Unlike other places, some of the dim sum dishes come in single piece and not by trays. This allows you to order more variety and not over eat too. Food is freshly... More

We found Tak Po after walking away from a supposedly authentic Singaporean restaurant. We had lunch and it was cheap - 14.45 SGD. Be wary that the appetizer (a small bowl of peanuts) and two wet towels (ie disposable paper towels) that are subsequently included in the bill. These do not distract from the great food. Classic fried dumpling, baked... More

We ended up here based on recommendations on this web site. We showed up just before noon on a Sunday and it looked very busy. Many people in line; however, a lady asked us how many and within 5 minutes they had placed some new tables in the alley way (covered) outside the restaurant. It was wonderful. The seating area...

This small and simple restaurant in Chinatown offers a very good dim sum HK style for reasonable prices. It's very common among the locals and they also serve congees. Personally I go there for dim sum as I am a very big fan of tasty dim sum and chinese tea. I like also the fact that the most of the... More

We were looking for an alternative to the ubiquitous Hotel 81s and chain hotels in Singapore. Something to bring us closer to the people in Singapore. This tiny hotel on top of one of Chinatown's many al fresco restaurants is a must find in this overpriced - for sleeping options - city! From memory there are only 5 rooms. When... More
