Slightly pricey for this kind of local flavor dish but the quality of the beef and gravy and noodle is excellent.

This is apparently an institution but my 1st time here. Not crowded during chinese new year eve and i assume it's packed during normal days The noodles are tasty and the herbal broth packs a delicious albeit salty/msg punch

We order our Favourite beef noodle soup. The only thing I don't like is the sweet taste in the beef broth. Meat was tender n noodles was cooked perfectly. Chili sauce isn't enough for us though. We also decided to order homemade chives dumplings 6 pcs for $6.90 and unfortunately they were uneven in size n dumpling skin were torn... More

The area around China Square has some quite expensive and/or boring restaurants. We found this place on a round-the-block scout for a low key dinner. The menu is a bit confusing for westerners, but with help from the waiter we made our choices. We wound up with a bowl of beef and noodle soup, a creamy coleslaw and some interesting... More

Meal - Bought the sliced beef set, noodles and beef was good. Only 2 tables were occupied but still nobody was willing to engage us. No explaination or anything even though its our first time there. Good thing was that no service charges if not I will rate the service as terrible.

The Hock Lam beef noodle of my youth re-surfaced as an absolute joke at Ion Orchard. This silliness of ordering through an iPad makes the entire experience utterly stupid, considering the restaurant is never packed. (Surely someone is making money from government grants to deploy technology? Or has the eatery been talked into buying these iPads?) Prices are atrocious -... More

Tried the new outlet at Ion Orchard. To counter the labour shortage issues, they have gone hi-tech, with ordering by iPad! The beef noodles are realiably good, and they have a few sides, none memorable though. You can add meat items (brisket, tendon, etc) to your noodle soup, but they charge an exorbitant $2-2.50 per tiny portion! This restaurant stands... More

The best beef noodles I had eaten in my life. Good reasonable price and perfect service. The homemade barley was really good and fresh. I bought a bottle of their homemade chili back with me and it was wonderful. My family loved it.

Everything I ordered was delicious, be it the sides or rich broth or tasty soup or the many beef parts. Cheap and very good value for beef and location too. Love the way the menu works e.g. can add on beef parts and there are many types of noodles/sets as it ensures that you get to try everything.

The noodle is pretty tasty, the beef is tender, and the soup is rich. Most importantly to me is that the old uncle working in the restaurant is super nice. Good service is something that the Singapore's food industry really lacks. Keep up the good work Hock Lam!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
