Foods were average, location at level 2 easy to find the place Staff with flat face was servicing us. The place is good to pit stop for snacking..before you continue your exploration at famous Chinna Town.

The price is reasonable. However, food is not fantastic at all. I believe what you pay is what you get. The place is very warm as well despite having fans around.

I don't like to give any poor marks in my reviews, but I can't help it this time. This restaurant has received many good reviews on the Tripadvisor, and was acclaimed for offering good food for reasonable prices in the guidebook we brought. As we stand in line to get a table, I saw people apparently from all over the... More

We got a recommendation of two mature locals that this shall be one of the best Dim Sum Restaurants in Singapore. The food is good and the spicy soup a good pick. If you like more the food market style you find very good Dim Sum around there as well.

Four of us entered the resturant for a meal, we decided the meals were a little too expensive for us so just ordered four entrees and a jug of tiger beer (equals 4 glasses at a cost of $38 for the jug). There were few meals that were reasonably priced but they ranged up to $160 + The staff were... More

This family favorite place would've gotten 4 stars from me if their service wasn't atrocious. We like coming for the weekday high tea buffet once in awhile because their dim sums are above average and their price is super value for money. We went again yesterday, the 7 of us. It was pretty crowded and though there were many many... More

We were looking to just have some Dim Sum for dinner in Chinatown, and decided on this one based on a combination of location (from where we were) and menu. We just ordered nine different dishes and shared everything. I especially enjoyed the Scallop Pea-shoot Dumplings and Prawn & Mango Sesame Fritters.

Food delicious but Manager attitude was terrible. We brought our overseas relatives to lunch at Yum Cha Chinatown Restaurant. We were assigned to the table beside a cabinet which initially we thought is for decoration purpose. Suddenly, a Manager in white polo shirt went to open the cabinet, he didn't tell us to give way. Instead he chase away our... More

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.
