Each time when I am in Singapore I go to the Red star restaurant with my Singaporean friends This time I went there for an early breakfast. As it is still busy and no reservation can be made go early. By years the quality became lesser. We ordered a number of classic dim sum dishes, the amount of expected stuffing... More

Red Star is an institution started by the 4 heavenly kings (4 top chefs) Their early claim to fame was the invention of yu sheng and yam ring. The restaurant is one of the last few Chinese restaurants that is located in an housing estate with old school decor and service. Think of a big hall with tables, a small... More

Liu sa pau is piping hot but I find the salty not rich enough but is better than many restaurant. Oh yes, I find the steam chicken tasted like those kampong chicken steam to... More

A traditional Chinese restaurant tucked away in a corner of Singapore not really known for eateries (and on the 7th floor of an HDB building, no less), Red Star serves up great food, old-school style. Come for the gaudy, chintzy 70s decor and stay for the great non-nonsense food, particularly sumptuous dim sums. Try the stuffed chilis - yum!

This is gem of a restaurant that should be an institution in its own right! The feel of the 1960's is there with the decor and the trolleys of food with Cantonese Dialect speaking waiters and waitresses coming to your table is a rare sight anywhere else in Singapore (or elsewhere?). The very name of the restaurant goes back to... More

It is a old traditional Cantonese restaurant at the skirt of China-town on the 7/F of a HDB building. The decoration reflects the old practised of Chinese restaurant ways and management found in Singapore and in Hong Kong. It is nice to use the old way to serve the Tsim Sum by pusing the food cart around the patrons. The... More

Extremely rude ladies pushing the food carts. They spent the last 2 minutes chatting about what to do after work, while I was standing there patiently, waiting for them to end the conversation. When I saw that they were not going to stop soon, I interrupted them as politely as I could and asked if I can be served a... More

The thing I like about this restaurant is it's way of keeping traditional practise and cooking method irregardless of how the outside world is changing, the way it sticks to it's way of having their waitresses going around it's diner with push cart serving various kind of "tim sum" during its breakfast hour. The serving of each share is generously... More
