We needed a restaurant for a Sunday dim sum brunch before departing for the airport. We had seven pieces of luggage to store and knew that it was too much to take into a restaurant so we decided a hotel would be just the thing. Looked up their menu on line and it seemed adequate. The room is serene, our... More

Don't get me wrong. This is a good restaurant, and a stylish one too, but when you dine at the Mandarin Oriental, and pay their prices, you do expect something Special in terms of food and service. Sad to say, the Cherry Garden didn't deliver.

We booked the restaurant by recommendation of our concierge. We were looking forward to a nice cantonese dinner. We arrived to the restaurant and everything was ok. We were seated and immediately given the menus, we felt pushed to hurry even though the restaurant was empty. We ordered two appetizers and the waiter couldn't recommend or explain anything, he could... More

If you like Cantonese food this is a wonderful restaurant. Perfect service and a lovely serene atmosphere. See more on my review of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel where this restaurant is situated.

We went here for lunch. Had several appetisers and also main course. Great kung pao chicken, great dim sums. There are 3 portion sizes, small, medium and large, but actually the small ones are enough for two people. Good house tea.The restaurant decor is beautiful. Service very good.

for a Mandarin Oriental Restaurant ! Average food, average to poor service (but with a lot of attitude). Outdated interior decoration. A tourist-trap. We would never take our visiting friends there . . .

My first visit to this restaurant. The ambience of the restaurant is great. The menu is very Cantonese, no surprises there. The food quality was what I expected given the high prices. However, service was disappointing. They didn't notice a guest was not given a cutlery set and the guest had to point this out when the food started to... More

Weekend dim sum brunch here is as good as it get i.e. on par with any of the other famous dim sums you can think of. Ambiance here is excellent to give you a comfy feel. Do try out their crispy wasabi-aioli prawns with fresh mango and roe.

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
