Almost all the dim-sum served are delicious, steamingly hot & in perfectly big sizes. Lots of varieties which included Chinese noodles, fried rice, seafood and hot & cold Chinese dessert.

We frequently go to Yum Cha for dim sum on a weekend either to dine in the restaurant or get take away. Efficient service and amazing dumplings and, for those who struggle finding vegetables that aren't swimming in oil in the food centres in Singapore, the broccoli is great!

My friends and I visited for lunch. We choose a la carte so we filled in the order form and all our selections were brought to us. The lavender coconut dumpling was AMAZING! Prompt service and reasonably priced esp for Singapore.

We dined here recently as part of a group tour of China Town , the food was served promptly, but sadly very bland tasting , in fairness it was set menu and not really to my normal choice .

People say that this is arguably the best dimsum in Singapore. Nice tradtional shophouse atmosphere, fresh dumplings, easily accessible by train, and in the heart of Chinatown. Great value for money as part of the Singapore experience.

meals are served in the nice location in a Shophouse in the middle of Chinatown - if you do not have the exact location, the restaurant is a little hard to find! Great food...not very very cheap, but very reasonable. Service....well, Singapore like most of the times! Still a place I would send people to go to and enjoy...top tip:... More

It's in the Chinatown, you can experience the old Chinese dim sum restaurant. Food selection is excellent, taste is good and price is reasonable.

Don't waste your time and money here. Limited selection, poor flavour, very very average. The dim sum you can buy frozen and steam yourself is better than this. On the plus side the service is pretty good, waitress was very attentive and kept my tea topped up.

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
