The dim sum are pretty decent however not much variety was being offered. The porridge is kind of disappointing whilst the fried brocoli was fresh. Overall it is a decent place if you are not very particular on ambience and service.

This is a Singapore heartland restaurant that also caters 2 weddings! Place is sizeable but don't expect much ambience. However, food has proved since we last ate there a few years back. Convenient and can easily accommodate walk-ins. We were there on a Sunday afternoon after a tiring Chengbeng (yearly prayers n visits to columbariums). Steamed sea bass, cereal prawns... More

We went to this restaurant on 03 Jan 2014. Despite sitting in the air con area where we are charged more, the service is so terrible for such average food and the bill came up to over $400 and we did not even order the expensive dishes! The waiter keep persuading us to take the set menu instead of the... More

I have been to the restaurant many times for Dim Sum. My family find it of good value and reasonably priced. It has different sections for different prices - aircon and non-aircon. I definitely recommend it for Dim Sum lovers.

Interesting food and good service except that the toilet is horrible. The chicken dish is nice and the signature dish is also the fried prawn. The sesame paste dessert is very good, with wolfberry and other stuff that you see in other restaurant.

Reasonable pricing, slightly more expensive than Zi char. However has a great variety of ala carte menu items and cosy homey atmosphere. Ideal for small families celebrations.

I went to Zi Yean for a yum cha lunch. We sat in the open air area (there is an air-conditioned section to the restaurant too). We had the usual range of yum cha goodies as well as a bowl of chicken and century egg congee. The food was pretty decent all round. The congee was excellent but the xiao... More

This is our go to place for dim sum at an early hour. Location is not the most salubrious, but for the price you pay, you really can't complain. Dim sum quality is very decent, even good. You can't compare it with hotel quality, but again, for the price you pay and the frequent promotional prices, you really can't complain.... More

Fantastic cantonese food offered by HK chef...absolutely loved the venision....have to try....best venison I've tasted in singapore! Extremely tender and juicy! Tucked away in a slightly shabby housing estate so can be bit difficult to find...slightly feel insecure about parking in the area.
