Ate here on 2 occasions and was pleased with variety available, however you have to get there relatively early since choices run out very quickly. Prices are also very affordable.

If you are just yearning for dim sum in town, this place is spacious, clean, and airy and the dim sum gives you that flavour. it is not the best that we have had. The porridge came in a bigger bowl than the usual but didn't have much in it. The barbequed pork buns (char siew pows) was smaller than... More

By Singapore standards, the Dim Sum is really good. I am referring to the one @ Macalister road just in case there are other dim sum shops referred in other posts. They are opened at 0730H and I ordered porridge, char siew puff, one big pau, another prawn dish and a large pot of tea at just RM$19. It is... More

I have been to this place for breakfast a couple of time & every time I really enjoy the food there. There are many varieties of tim sum to choose from. However I really like the ones that contain prawns & those with pork-prawn paste mixture tim sum. The reason is you can taste the freshness of the prawns they... More

good portions but definitely not Hong Kong style. Beware the MSG. But worth a go. Tried a bit of everything and nothing to rave about nor nothing to knock.

This local dim-sum spot was packed frequently, and it has the same atmosphere as most hawker centres in the city. This was not your upscale dim-sum restaurant you would expect in Hong Kong, but a stripped down version for what Georgetown is famous, cheap good food with no pretension. Self service was key to dining here. Find a table, settle... More
