As a frequent visitor to Singapore, Yum Cha restaurant in Chinatown is always the first stop on every trip. An excellent selection of dim sum delicacies (including chicken feet) with fast and efficient service. A well-known, popular gem that should be heritage listed for its longevity.

Really large range of Dim Sum, all that we tasted were excellent. Service was fast. Bit of a tricky place to find, but worth it.

Good Yum Cha but can get busy. best times to go - 11am and after 3pm. Seafood is good and tasty. Can order off menu - but need to ask staff - prawns very great. Warning - you have to pay for peanuts and towelettes

Convenient to use this service. Do not need to call for reservation. Good food, fast service and delicious food. But slight noisy.

The staff were very attentive and food wasn't bad. Very near MRT and not too crowded. Not exactly cheap, but good variety and service was good.

This is a very pleasant and bustling restaurant in Chinatown that should certainly be visited at least once, as they accommodated us well. The air conditioned dining area has a casual feel and attentive, if slightly pushy, staff that endeavour to please, even if they do not sometimes understand exactly what you want. We ordered creamy corn soup, wok fried... More

No Doubt you can find many other dim sum restaurants in Singapore, but at the end of the day, we always come back to this one ! Mid-low price range, air-conditioned, no queue (if you can be there earlier or make reservation for bigger group, we always visit there on Sunday 9.30am - NO QUEUE) We love it because the... More

So there maybe cheaper dim sum in Singapore and it is everywhere we found the dim sum here to be quite delicious. Stopped by for a pre dinner snack and it was quite full. I can say you aren't going to get five star service and might have to track down the servers but they seemed to be doing their... 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.
