Visited hear for dim sum while shopping after being highly recommended and it surely never disappointed. Even though we arrived close to closing time the food quality was great and the service was good also. Priced decently and surely not too expensive. If your around the area I would definitely recommend this place. A must visit! #amit1chahal

We visit Yum cha reataurant at Chinatown, It's on second floor, a big place with many tables. Many custom are a long queue, should be booking before. Dim sum food has excellent menu, many kind of stream food, fried food and dessert with egg tart.

Yum Cha serves a variety of dim sum. Trolleys roll by frequently for you to make a choice. Or you can place an order. Service is quick. There are always queues, but it moves quickly. If you are trying dim sum for the first time, read up a bit on it so you know what you are ordering. We go... More

We found that place because of the "Singapore Restaurant Month", where they were supposed to have a special dish, celebrating Singapore's 50 years of independence. Upon arriving, we stood there, waiting to be seated, as it is usual around the city. At least half a dozen waitresses passed us by and none of them even care to address us or... More

This restaurant specialises in dim sum. We were advised to come to this place by family. We were told to expect to wait for table as it's always busy, we awaited approx 10 minutes for a table of 8. The way it works is each table has a list of all the food and drinks available and the food is... More

Be careful when you dine here. What we thought was a small dish of complimentary peanuts,($2.00!!), and hand wipes, (60cents each),were added to our bill! And a teapot of tea was $3.60!!! Dishes were cheap $2.50-$4.80, but service was terrible. We were given a menu, pencil and ordering sheet to fill out. Food tasted stale. No sign of authentic dishes,... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
