They have so many specialty ducks sold here. And the additional touch of herbs make it even more tasty. But recently felt that the standards have dropped. Tastes are not always maintained at the same standards and rice is getting too hard at times.

This branch is about the same as the other branches. Dian Xiao Er serves dishes that are quite different from normal chinese restaurants. Go there for a change but having it often can be a bore. The XO fried rice is nice besides the duck (with different sauces).

Didn't liked the fact that they charge for water but the dishes are delicious, especially the roast duck with ten wonder herbs.

Barbecue Duck with different herbs (3 styles) are their speciality but many other dishes are excellent. I like very much the Mushrooms in Chinese whine and the Chinese Cabbage. I often visit for lunch as the service is quick. Excellent value for money

Buy the duck with orders to NOT CHOP it up. This rule applies to all duck takeaways when you do not have good visibility of the chopping board. I went to DianXIaoEr to packet half roast duck for dinner and was disgusted to find the chopped meat amounts to only about a quarter of a duck. It's very likely the... More

Dian Xiao is an average Chinese restaurant in the Marina Square shopping centre. Food is fine and expect to pay about SGD 35 before drinks. The duck was a highlight, the Hunan chicken not so good. Go here if convenient and few other options. You will be neither disappointed nor delighted.

I've never been a great fan of chinese food but this has really changed my opinions towards it. Like the herbal duck. Its a muz try. And not forgetting their soup, its another of their signature. And the best thing is their service. Its GREAT... Overall experience is tremendous... Strongly reccomend
