“Ah Yat Restaurant Singapore”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I find it puzzling, it is a only mere 3.5 hours or so of flight time between Singapore and HK, and yet I can not find any tasty dim sum restaurants in Singapore. This 'Ah Yat' is no exception, at best mediocre, for its price: the 'har gau' wrapping was dull, opague, uninviting, the 'siu mai' was bland in taste and chewy, the 'cheung fan' was over cooked. The service was difficult to find, apart from bringing the food and tea, and the bill. The only good thing here is the space between the tables!

Why is it so difficult to find a good Cantonese/Dim Sum restaurants in this part of the world!

“Nice place for Dim Sum lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Went there on a weekday dim sum lunch. For the price paid, the food was ok. A bit crowded and service can be slow at times. A nice place for friends to catch up over tea and dim sum. Parking was ok. May go there again.

“Jurong Bird Park Branch for Dim Sum Buffet (Groupon)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Went on 19th May 2013.

There was a "special" room for people who purchased the coupon online. I was placed in "BEIJING" room.

Price was good since i brought it online.
Food was served fast, taste was great.
Variety was great. A good mix of streamed, fried, noodles or rice.
Service was average, no special attention was given for the room since there was only one service staff for this room. They do the tea refill or change of plates when you ask for it. Attitude of the lady on duty that day was great although she was super busy.

Excellent value for money!

“Terrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Beware!!!! I've just returned from dinner and this is the worst seafood restaurant i've had in Singapore.

The deep fried fish was totally hard like rock and full of oil, and the meat taste like tree bark.
The butter prawn is dry and tasteless except to be full of oil again....
After the meal it brings much discomfort as the chef cooling standard is lousy, much worst than my phiipino maid can cook...

The worst is the attitude of the service stuff...saying that deep fried is supposed to be oily because we order a low class fish and not the high end fish...

rubbish....if your high class restaurant cook lousy food , don't blame it on the low class food. There's tons of restaurants out there who can cook nice juicy seabass!!

Everyone, please do yourself a favour and avoid ah yat at all cost...save your hard earn $$$

“Treated like an outcast”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Purchased a 4 pax Groupon for alacarte Dim Sum buffet at Ah Yat Restaurant. My spouse, my 7-year-old son, my elderly dad and I went on 2-March. We were familiar with the terms and conditions of the offer which stated that the groupon did not cover tea, towels and pickles, and we were fully prepared to pay for these.

We were ushered to our table afterwhich the hostess asked us what tea we wanted, we ordered chrysanthemum tea which they did not have, so we settled for warm water ($2/pax), pickles (peanuts) + towels were $3/pax. The hostess reminded us of this before she went off to her station.

Within 8 mins of being seated (before we even ordered), we were presented with the bill. I asked why they were presenting me with the bill even before the meal, and the response : "the management is afraid that groupon customers will walk off before paying". UNBELIEVABLE !
