There is always a long queue; the waiting staff rarely smile and are less pro-active than at similar restaurants. But people keep coming back for the wholesome, simple but delicious food - nutritious soups, smooth tofu, silky kangkong, and of course the scrumptious steamed chicken with its heavenly ginger sauce.

I didn't know what's the signature dish here or what's the most wanted so I let My Boss to order the meals. And there was this food porn named Samsui Ginger Chicken which happened to be my kind of love at the... More

We went this time to the Paragon location which is very popular. You are immediately in a very pleasant Chinese "chic" ambience with typical furniture and decor. This restaurant may not suit the non-Chinese or non-Asian palate. The speciality is medicinal soups, each recommended for different ailments. They are nothing like any other soups as they are made with different... More

This time I only take away, but in my previous visit I did breakfast here. It's delicious and fulfilling, and the service is quite good :)

The chicken is tender and blend with ginger is really yummy! However the kangkung is spicy and salty.

Our group of 5 had to wait for about fifteen to twenty minutes in a line. Paragon location was very very crowded. Staffs, in general, were friendly and foods were delicious. We had Samsui Chickens and Black Olive Rice and hot tea--which were all satisfied comparing to money we paid for. Especially the ginger sauce for Samsui Chicken was so... More

We had to pick a place to meet our oversea friends from Australia which spent their holidays in Singapore. The Soup Restaurant at the Paragon was the perfect meeting point. However we realized the popularity of the place at lunch, therefore we scheduled our meeting time at 11:30 a.m. To top it of, we also made a firm reservation with... More

I wondered why this place is always packed, and figured out quickly. Delicious Ginger Chicken (MUST order), traditional soup (cures everything), excellent, fast and efficient service. Yummy food without fuss. Not a place to hang out for hours, but suitable for a quick lunch or dinner.

Despite the name, the restaurant serves many other dishes in addition to its soup selection. In fact, it is more well known for its delectable Ginger Chicken, steamed chicken with their special ginger sauce, wrapped in fresh lettuce. A definite must eat on every visit. Other dishes which we really like are Beggar Tofu, San Yu fish slices cooked in... More

This is a busy restaurant, no matter which branch you visit, but the wait time is reasonable. Service is good and it is famous for its steam chicken and catfish. However, if you wanted to try this restaurant out, just order the steam chicken and nothing more. Other dishes are pretty standard taste, nothing of a surprise. This place is... More
