“Fairly good services and delicious dim sums”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I treated my friend to this restaurant branch, though in Marina Bay, for dim sum last Thursday, as the Marina Bay branch seemed to be less crowded than the other branches.

We had vegetarian dumplings which was delicious and xiao long bao which was juicy, spicy dumplings which was just spicy to the right taste, prawn dumplings, and zha jiang noodles.

My friend already had lunch in her couple's dormitory in NUS, but she said that the dim sum was just too tasty that she couldn't hold her appetite!!!!!!

I had almond pudding as dessert. They should have said on the menu that the almond pudding came with sesame, as some people might be allergic to sesame.

The service in this restaurant was very good. We got served almost right away.

“Stunningly good fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

I have previously raved about Din Tai Fung in Hong Kong. It was so good in fact that we actively went looking for it in Singapore.

Considering this is a Michelin starred restaurant the prices for the food on offer is nothing short of miraculous.


It was so busy we ended up eating outside of the restaurant in the middle of the food court but that didn’t matter. The queue at one point was over 50 people long (I counted) so bear in mind it may get busy particularly at lunch time in the middle of the shopping district in Singapore.


I cant go on enough about the food. Its fresh, tasty and utterly fantastic. You can watch the chefs making every single dish from scratch through the windows into the kitchen.


Take my advice and visit in Din Tai Fung, you will leave satisfied and not out of pocket. Fantastic.

“Best place for dumplings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

This was one of our favourite restaurants whilst living in Singapore. We would always order the pork dumplings with the soup inside them. We tried most things on the menu and almost all of them were excellent. If you are someone who can't use chopsticks, be mindful of this as they don't have cutlery (my teenage step son would use his hands for the pork dish he would order). It's always very busy and some of them have a big line (especially the one located at Marina Bay Financial Centre during lunch time). All in all, a highly recommendable place.

“Best Xiaolongbao in Singapore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The food are made of freshly-made and are all delectable. Be prepared to fall in line though as they have lots of customers.
