Well worth the trip

A little far from the centre but worth it. Old fashioned place but fresh food being brought out all the time so that it is actually hot. Perhaps our best meal in S'pore during 5 days. Don't look at the decor & compare to all those flash restaurants or dirty Hawker centres. We really enjoyed it... read more

If you are keen to revert to 30 years back, go there. Huge place. Reservation is a joke. Walk in, seat anywhere. Choose carefully. Leftovers are all over the place. Stick to the knowns. Aggressive behavior will set you back. Good luck.

If you love a grimy and greasy atmosphere, this is the place to be. Walking in is like walking in the Chinese restaurants of my childhood. Service is fast and fuss free. The dim sum is served from a push cart. The portions are generous. For me, dim sum must be delicate, light-handed, little bits of perfection. At Red Star,... More

This is one of the few places that you can eat yum cha from the trolley in Singapore. The restaurant is located in an hdb area near the cbd. The restaurant itself is very large and they don't take bookings on weekends (I was told there are long queues). The place has a nice feeling to it but the food... More

This place will close soon for lack of staff. It is the only affordable place for Dim Sum where there are trolleys that come around inviting the seated customers to look at the small plates of food and select them! The small tea cups still come in a plastic bowl of boiling water to be rinsed before pouring the tea... More

At 9am, there was already a long queue outside the resto. Could be a good/bad sign depending how you look at it but for me it’s a good sign because I believe it means the place is popular rather than due to other reasons like.. non-existence service. This time I was proven wrong. We were shown to our table and... More

I used to go to this place for dim sum a lot at least 10 years back. Have been thinking of a place to bring my oversea friend and suddenly remember this traditional dim sum place with push cart. When I reached, i got a shock as this place is totally packed but must say the turnaround time is quite... More

Came here for a recent business dinner and surprised how good the food was. A bit tricky to find amidst the housing units but really tasty veggie options (clay pot yams, fried bean curd, red bean pancake dessert). All very good and we had the place to ourselves until a large group came in. One of the biggest restaurants I've... More

Was a very lively place inside the restaurant and a very large gap between the outside quite atmosphere which shows one of those hidden popular location spots without any special signboard or to locate on the street level (located on the 7th floor). Very efficient way of serving by trolleys with each carrying different dishes and courses. Each trolley circulating... 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.
