My husband and I recently read a food write up on some of the nostalgic places to eat in Singapore. This restaurant was one of them. Not one to say no to dim sum, we decided to give it a try last Sunday and we were not disappointed. We took the har kau, lu sar bao, spring rolls, century egg... More

Food was good enough, service and ambiance were typical standard Chinese. Neither bad nor remarkable.

I ate at Red Star recently after a lapse of ten years or more. We were seated at a table next to the entrance, just the two of us. The food carts were long in coming; somehow we felt ignored! While the quality of the dim sum was okay and the price reasonable, we did not eat much because we... More

This place still does the push carts around the restaurant. We were able to make a reservation, which was great, else no idea how long you'd have to wait for to get a table. Plenty of variety, quality of food is amazing, a must-do when in Singapore.

Some of the dim sum are not as good as it used to be. The century egg porridge is expensive and not as nice. You can still order the rest like char siew buns, roast duck meat and dessert. Overall for the 4 of us we spent around $200 so it's really quite expensive. The ordering system works like mâché... More

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.

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.
