Wide variety of Catonese Dim Sums, yet not too expensive. Comfortably air-conditioned with close service at a call. Great for breakfast and brunch.

it's very easy to reach this restaurant, only a couple of minutes from Chinatown MRT exit on Pagoda street. their weekday dim sum offer at less than S$ 25++ per pax is a very good deal. fast service, wide range of dishes and the ambiance is real.

I've read some articles about this restaurant, and convinced me to give it a try. It is located among the major streets in Chinatown area. The ambience is not that attractive, however people keep on coming back for its taste. I highly recommend the xiao long bao, and their garlic pork.

The food is not bad and the service could be rude. This is not unusual for these very popular places. You come here for breakfast in the Sunday morning. If you don't mind being pushed a bit and other minor issues, this is a good place to start in China Town.

Stopped by this place as part of a Viator trip to China Town. The food was very good and plentiful. The restaurant was clean and the staff friendly. Would recommend if in the area.

This is a restaurant I really look forward to going to, however this time it was very disappointing. They charged for the nuts on the table and even for the hand towels. The service was so slow that I had to get up several times and make the waiters come over to our table. The person behind the bill counter... More

We were on our honeymoon when we visited Singapore in Jan 2015 (can't change the year so have put 2016) and this was our first meal that we had picked prior to coming to the city. It was very highly rated among others in Chinatown so we decided to give it a try. We tried a lot of their dimsum... 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.
