We were overwhelmed buy the gentle and courteous attention as we tried to work out which dish was which! Not like our usual Chinese Take Away in Queensland. (it will never be the same again) We ordered duck pancakes and the young lady took charge of rolling these for us, and of course made it look so much nicer than... More

The food is at best mediocre. The service was poor. The waiter who took our orders kept disappearing while I was speaking to him! The table felt dirty and stank of stale food. There were 4 of us but the dim sum came in 3s. Either one of us had to go without or we would order too much and... More

A superb meal, the Fish Dishes including the Shrimps and Lobster are worth trying, the Pate is exceptional and the Steak was outstanding. One of the best Mushroom Soups we have tasted and the Deserts brilliant

We booked a table for dinner during the Chinese New Year weekend and we only had a choice of two set menus. The place as you can imagine was packed and we were given a table near the entrance which was not exactly what we were hopping for when we made the reservation. The staff was helpful but obviously rushed... More

Had hoped that a Chinese restaurant in Singapore would have been excellent but very similar to the cuisine that we eat in our local Chinese restaurant. Will give this a miss next time !

Make a reservation! We asked for recommendations and were not disappointed. The food is beautifully presented and had great flavor. We especially enjoyed the Peking Duck. When you make a reservation tell them that you would like Peking Duck so you are not disappointed. The scallop appetizer just melted in your mouth. I'd like to comment on other menu items,... More

As annual visitors to Singapore, we try out top restaurants. Cherry Garden did not disappoint! The menu was so extensive, 14 pages worth! No selection was over looked. We were over fed if anything, and the chef even recommended we order a smaller serve of one dish because it would have been too much in his opinion. This told me... More

One of the best, if not, the best dim sum I've ever had anywhere. And I been to many. Went for the Sunday Dim Sum brunch (about S$68 per person), which is more than usual, but this is no average dim sum restaurant. Service, Food, and Ambiance were all top notch.

This is probably the best dim sum place in Singapore. We came here for the S$104 (S$88++) per head dim sum buffet on Christmas Day, and we enjoyed a wonderful gastronomic experience. The service is elegant and attentive - not overly pretentious, decoration is oriental and tasteful, the ambience is clam and relaxing, the food is superior in quality of... More
