Good Dim Sum

We liked the food! Prices were reasonable, service friendly. Good place to go when looking for dim sum. If you want to get a table for sure, make a reservation!

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

The decor is nothing special and I've seen greater variety of Dim Sum selection, however the six Dim Sum dishes we ordered were very fresh and tasty, the price was okay - not too cheap (about 5 SGD per steam basket) but fine for what we got for the money. Staff seemed busy even though the restaurant was only half... More

We decided we'd like an air conditioned seafood restaurant for my infants comfort and to enjoy a night out with my hubby and the in laws... Upon arrival you are directed to the table, no smiles.. Sit and be prepared to be yelled at. Staff are extremely rude, but they do attend to the table... The way they express them... More

Came for dimsum but was shocked with waitress foul attitude. Her tone of voice was haughty as though there's no other restaurants we could go for dimsums. We could anytime go to Yan Ting, Peach Blossom, Summer Palace, Asia Grand, Royal China or Spring Court & be welcomed witb open arms & hearty smiles. Even the captain Simon couldnt care... More

We really wanted dumplings, this was recommended by the hotel. It had an address of Trengganu street in Chinatown, but it is actually around the corner on Smith street, upstairs. Great food, attentive service, OMG the garlic on the garlic prawns.....there was a lot. Lovely dumplings!

If you want good Yum Cha without the tourist trimmings - this is for you. Set up a long flight of stairs, hidden amongst China Town shops - well worth the fine. You will get a good feed here of quality local food without the grandeur. Basic seating, restaurant has no view but is cool. Service is ok - but... More

Yum Cha is located in China Town Singapore, which is the place is less noticeable. But they served the best dim sum I ever taste. The LoMaKay (sticky rice with pork meat and salted egg, wrapped with lotus leaf) is the best ever. The Shu May also good. They also served the various soup menu and also porridge Little bit... 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.
