Overall this one deserves sad applause, winning no category of service, quality. Cost, taste or ambience. The place is hidden in Chinatown and gives somewhat of an impression that you might find a gem located in the hustle of it all. So up a narrow staircase and excitement brews but alas a big hall, no music and bold bright light.... More

If you are looking for a dim sum type experience and you look at the time and think " missed it", do not despair. Yum Cha has their version of a high tea dim sum (no carts, just a menu with pics) from 3-6pm, but you must arrive by 5 or they will tell you its last order before you... More

We didn't have to wait for too long to be seated. They gave us Chinese menu and never came back for the order. We didn't know the waitors would come with dim sum trolley. We just had to point and speak. But our table was in the corner where the waitors didn't seem to notice we were there. A bit... More

very traditional and typical Singaporean Dim sum, cozy atmosphere,traditional ambience, amazing and very helpful staff. Cook very well presented and cooked to perfection, Located right in the middle of Chinatown on a second floor corner. The place is a little difficult to find because of all the little stores lining up the alleyway, once you find it and go up... More

You get a very comfortable dining experience with the no-frills dim sum spread against a very cozy ambiance, notably the marble tables and classic wooden seats i.e. very typical Singaporean style. I like their har gows and siew mais, which is consistently tasty and good. Their porridge is also worth mentioning cooked to the right texture. As for dessert, make... More

When in Chinatown this is a great option for Dim Sum. Whilst it is in the heart of Chinatown it is a little hard to find the first time as its on the first floor and the entrance is not particularly well signposted. We thoroughly enjoyed Yum Cha and visited it several times when in Singapore. Staff are friendly and... More

Good to be back after many years and see things are still mostly the same. The dim sum still being carted along the aisles which has disappeared from so many restaurants in Bangkok, Singapore, and Hongkong as was commonplace before. The quality is good to very good. I especially enjoyed the chicken wings in paper bag, steamed sticky rice Parcels,... More

Above the Santa Teresa Hotel, there is a lift if stairs aren't good for you! You either arrive early for lunch or dinner, or you will need to queue. I hate queues, but we did on our second visit because I knew what was coming. Yum Cha is frequented by locals too.... That is what I always look for! There... More
