Right in the heart of Chinatown, Yum Cha has the atmosphere revered by locals and tourists alike. It's always packed at lunch hour which ensures freshly baked dumplings by the minute. The crunchy banana& bean paste deep fried dumpling is the best way to finish a large selection of dim sums. And the top it all it's not expensive, always... More

Definitely, a place to be for dim sum in Singapore. Buffet style value for money. Delicious food. Do visit if you prefer afternoon dim sum.

I heard quite a lot about this restaurant and always wanted to try it but didn't have the chance until very recently. Yum Cha, literally means, 'Drink Tea' in Chinese also means to having Chinese tea and dim sum. Dim Sum, small Chinese dishes. Think of it like servings of individual bites, in small portions. The location of the restaurant,... More

You can tell a good restaurant when it is used by locals and this one was packed. We didn't have to wait too long and it was well worth the wait, food was delicious and the sweet and sour fish was excellent. The staff work hard and are polite and served the dishes without delay. A good place to eat.

I was recommended this from a friend, it's near the Santa Ana Grande hotel. Went around 9:30am on a Sunday morning. Meal wasn't overly expensive, and lots to choose from: either hot or cold options. Custard bun was good but be careful or it can pop open and you'll have custard sauce all over the table (or you!). Try a... More

I got this restaurant recommended by a local friend and went twice during a one week visit to Singapore. Yum Cha Restaurant is located in the heart of China Town. Both times I had a great dining experience, but I must say I enjoyed the second most, as it had a different set-up. First time I visited the restaurant on... More

Get there early and great for a Sunday lunch. It is queue and wait and well worth the effort. Reasonably priced for good dim sum and sufficient through put of people not to be stale.

I went to Yum Cha with friends while visiting Singapore at the end of June. The dim sum was good but I have had better, and overpriced for what it was. It was nice to see the place filled with locals, and our service was good. This place seems to be highly recommended to tourists but I believe there is... More
