Authentic noodles here. Flavourful and delicious. And with good service. The lady assistant who stands at the door and waits on the table is amazing. Try the chicken chop la mien or zha Jiang la mien. Both v good. I like the sauce that has this latent spiciness. It's outstanding. Of course don't miss the Guo tie or fried dumpling.... More

Best noodles I've eaten. Went at lunchtime, had potstickers; steamed dumplings with chilli sauce; hot & sour soup noodles & chicken noodles. Good service, fantastic food & reasonably priced.

Soup dumplings are EXCELLENT and Shanghai steamed dumplings are pretty darn good. Film the noodle guy and you'll be impressed by his noodle making kung fu dramatisations!

I visited this place to have their signature menu, jajangmyeon (the first one in the menu), with hand-stretched noodles. However, I am not sure if those noodles are stretched by hands. If they were, the shape of the noodles should be irregular, but they weren't. Also, the size was too small. It was the size for kids, not for adults.... More

Food is good here but not worth for the price. Before entering this eatery, my friend & I (2 pax) had just ate at the next door eatery named Holland Village XO fish... For a dish of San Lo Fish Horfun and Slice Fish XO beehoon soup, we paid only $14 net. We then head to this place to share... More

Is this shop at Smith Street? Thought it is at one of the shop lots at the Food Street... The la mian was good, especially the hot and sour la mian. We also had the Shanghainese dumplings, which was very tasty with lots of soup in the dumplings (most places have very little soup). We liked those 2 dishes best,... More

I ordered a bowl of mince noodles (S$6.80) and a fried donpline (S$8.80). However, the waitress asked me for $21.00. When I questioned it, she told me that there was 10% surcharge for eating inside and the rest were for wet towels and one pickled vegetable. I didn't want any pickled vegetable but the waitress forced me to have it.

Ever since Smith Street closed down for renovation, I've been deeply worried if Lan Zhou La Mian would still be one of its tenants. Boy am I glad it is. Yes there has been a price hike, but blame it on the increase in rental (heard from the owner that it's double now). The food does not disappoint. Till now,... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
