“used to be my favourite dim sum restaurant in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

as it stated above, this was my favourite dim sum restaurant...
i used to love dining there not only because of the good dim sum they served but also the friendly service they offered... the workers there always greeted you with lovely smile and serve you politely...

but all these changed after the change of owner (though still from the same family)... i noticed most elderly workers who i found them friendly aren't working there anymore but more and more part-time youngsters... i'm not saying that those new workers are impolite, just that not as nice as those previous workers...

the food is still satisfying... i personally love their char siew pau (roasted pork bun), prawn rolls and egg tarts... i would say they served one of the best dim sum in town at decent pricing... make sure you go early during weekends if you don't like waiting...

“3.5 stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Yoke Fook Moon is popular with the locals due to a combination of decent taste and good value (due to more generous portion size). The dim sum here might lack the refinement of those over at Ming Court or Royal China but it is still very acceptable. The char siew pau in particular is one of the best in town.

Of course, like the other places on the same street, it gets very packed on the weekends so be prepared to wait. Also, Yoke Fook Moon is open until the night although the dim sum items becomes more limited then.

“Cheapest at Tim Sum Street preferred by locals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I was told this is the tim sum restaurant preferred by locals, as the price is low, portion of food is large, and they don't use MSG.

5 of us ordered 10 baskets of tim sum, the taste was satisfactory, but a bit too salty, the tim sum were larger than other restaurants at the tim sum street. Indeed, it was the cheapest.

Business was brisk, but the place was cool and comfortable, ambience was right for typical tim sum restaurant. Service was fast & staff were friendly and attentive.
