Was told this place by a cab driver on the way from the airport. Thinking it was excellent, we took a trip after hotel check-in. Turns out to be average only. Plenty of locals though suggesting otherwise. Short cab-ride from Orchard Road, from memory about $7. Take the lift from ground floor to... read more

On 7th floor, not easy to find or come across if you are not familiar with the area. Huge selection of different dim sum dishes, very efficient pushcart service. We spent 4 hours with a group of friends enjoying the variety of different things. Would suggest a must for anyone looking for traditional dim sum.

Traditional old chinese place to hang out with family. They waiters serve you in cart by taking around various dishes and you pick and choose what you want. The food is great and reasonably priced. A place worthy of visiting at least once.

Went on the 1st of Jan with family for our first meal. Was crowded but the queue was moving fast... One of the best place to eat dim sum in Singapore with push cart style normally use in Hong Kong... The only disappointment was the porridge....

Dim sum is good, affordable but not a place for people whose's expecting good customer service. Pushcart available but customers have to 'wait for their turn' to be served and you may face so difficulty identifying which cart is serving your favorite food :)

Bring back memories of the old days with dim sum served on strolling carts. Not the place if you want fine dining but if you want good humble food at reasonable price this is the place. The Siew mai and Har Kow are reasonable in size. In many restaurants these are getting smaller and smaller. They have a giant Pow... More

Last few places in Singapore that serve dim sum on trolley service. Standard dim sum staples found every where. Go there for the atmosphere of large, noisy dim sum places of yesteryear, or to bring overseas guests for interesting dining experience .

A huge variety of tasty dim sum dishes that will leave you spoiled for choice. Not to mention, it's reasonably priced (our total bill came up to $157 for 4 and). The ambience is great, with aircon, proper seats and amenities. Interesting concept as well because the waitresses go around pushing carts of food instead of you ordering from a... More

Tim Sum on the old-school steamer trolleys. Not easy to find in Singapore. Tim Sum are generally tasty, although standards drop over the years. Do try the crispy roast pig skin, roast duck, roast meat, porridge, Siew Mai, Har Gao, deep fried soft shell crab, char Siew pastry, cold pig trotter, sweet and sour pig trotter

Im surprised it is not too packed with customer like me on a weekday. The dim sum is steaming hot when served and that makes it mouthwatering. Try a few dishes and glad that I made the right choice to eat here. Keep up with good food! I'll be back!

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.
