I have had excellent, snooty and pretty dim sum in Hong Kong and Singapore, but the real deal full dim sum experience goes back to the traditional room full of people cart pushing can't stop eatin' dim sum at Red Star. You never would find on your own, but every Taxi driver knows where Red Star is... read more

Over the years been (since 2001), I've visiting this restaurant for group lunches. In a time where hipsters cafes & restaurants around the world are looking & feeling the same, Red Star's circa 70s interior & aesthetics is unique & is a worth visit for that alone. The fare is a no frills traditional dim sum which for me is... More

This is one of the older Dim sum restaurant in Singapore. The decoration is certainly a 70's theme - dark, deep red carpet and chairs and gold colours wall trimmings. I think they still do weddings here. A must visit before such restaurants become history and replaced by the newer and swanky Crystals Jades and Imperial. They serve Dim sum... More

I'm a dim sum lover.After read mixing reviews about this place in different websites I decided to try it out. All staff were very friendly, variety of foods and desserts BUT all of them were bad.. Did not pass my lowest expectation at all... Oh well once time visit is more than enough

This restaurant is located on the 7th floor! Best to go during the weekdays as it can get really busy on the weekends and there are no reservations! I love my dim sum and just can't get enough of them! The phoenix claws are so soft and tender!

Red Star Restaurant is probably the most authentic, classic looking Chinese restaurant left in Singapore. It practically looks like you’ve stepped back in time to the 1970s. Masterchefs Sin Leong, and Hooi Kok Wai, two of the remaining members of the multi-award winning Four Heavenly Kings of Cantonese Cuisine and disciples of Chef Luo Chen at The Cathay Restaurant in...

This is the second time in last one year we visited this restaurant. It was a novel experience to see how hundreds of customers are being served with close to 100 different type of dishes on constantly moving trollies. Every dish was nicely prepared. We had about a dozen different types of cuisine namely, Bananas with Prawn, Paper raped Chicken... More

This place was introduced in "Surprising Singapore" book, so we purposely went for a try. We would say there's nothing significant comparing to our local famous Dim Sum restaurant but if this your first try of Dim Sum then can give a shot. We didn't order much as we are having lunch soon but what surprised us was the way... More

This is a nice place for people born in the 70s to reminisce the days when I was just about 10 years old. They still have the push carts serving the different varities of dim sum. I've tasted better dim sum so for me is really the atmosphere and ambience that I enjoy. Plus, the servers are mainly older folks... More

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
