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

Nice place, quite hard to find, lost in the middle of the shops. But very goog food, decent and precise service. The dim sums are creative and awake curiosity and awoke my tatse buds very nicely. Spice is present but not invading.

Whilst I had been warned that the service could be inconsistent but the food would be very tasty, I was disappointed on one front - the service. Both the food and the service were of the highest quality on the day we visited. Highly recommend you go early though!

Came here for lunch with my mum and ordered the usual dim sum items like har gow and siew Mai. Sad to say that the standard has dropped. Skin of har gow was one of the thickest I've tried. Taste of the other items are average and pretty saltish. Guess this may be the last time I visit this place... More
