Recently went to this main branch that located just opposite Clark Quay Mrt station with my China relatives that visited us during this Chinese New Year. It was so crowded when we reached there and was packed full house but we were consider lucky to get our seat as we were in the No.1 queue ( we... read more

Song fa @ Chinatown Point. 133 new bridge road. Nearest MRT stop is chinatown exit chinatown point and pops out very close to the shop. Very meaty ribs and tasty soup which was topped up without asking. The pig's small,intestine is very tasty too,if you fancy trying something different. We were a party of 5 and everyone was extremely satisfied... More

Not good, soup is only half bowl, staff is very unpolite and cannot be refilled. You must paid S$0.2 for wet towel without notified before

Planned to go to another restaurant above it and went down the wrong stairs. This place was very busy. Lots of patrons and the wait staff were very efficient but cold/robotic. I had a pork tail soup which was very satisfying and I guess...interesting. The soup base didn't seem to be strongly seasoned as I would like it to be,... More

We went for dinner last night upon recommendation from a gentleman my husband is working with. 10 minute wait but they take your order in line so when you sit the food comes right away. It was delicious, like crock pot roast. I had the same thing for lunch at a hawker stall in Chinatown though and it was just... More

Long lines during peak meal times so be prepared to wait. We sometimes intentionally avoid peak time but then they run out of the premium pork ribs fast. Apart from pork ribs soup I recommend the boiled ground nuts and pickled vegetables.

This is the best bak kut teh I've ever had. We went for a late lunch (around 2pm) and there was no line - we were quickly ushered to our seats and ordered. The food was delicious and the service was quite friendly and efficient (unlike a lot of other places). It was a quick walk from Clarke Quay MRT,... More
