We love the service at Lao Beijing, Velocity, Novena. Crispy Skin Roast Duck and Kung Pao Chicken are must haves. Chef cooked Vegetarian Mapo Tofu and some other dishes for WiFI, we have had better, but at least my wife didn't go hungry. Reasonably priced.

Family decided to have Winter Solstice dinner at Lao Beijing Velocity. Direct access from Novena MRT station. Clean oriental style restaurant with 3 private function rooms. Little noisy at main hall during peak hours. No wifi. Ordered $288++ tasting menu (7 course + 1 dessert). The food was just sufficient for 8 adults. Tasty and non greasy. Really tasty. Restaurant...

This place is good, having authentic chinese food, especially loving the ja jiang mian. I also love their popiah, totally recommended. It's suitable for big family dinner too. The interior is pretty interesting.

We always come here for the Beijing-style sweet and sour fish! Our kids are not really fans of fish just love this dish. There are also other dishes which are good like the crispy skin roast duck, special Zhajiang noodles and pan-fried onion pancake. It helps that Lao Beijing is under Amex's Loving Dining program and we enjoy a pretty... More

I went to the novena square outlet. Is good. I ordered the stir fried pork strips wrap with pan cake, some fried buns and vegetables. Crowded during weekend. Spacious and clean.

Family bonding time. Tonight, visited Lao Beijing Restaurant (老北京食堂) located at Velocity @ Novena Square. Nearest MRT will be Novena station. Clean place. No WiFi. Friendly helpful waiters and waitresses. Decided on the $248++ set dinner menu for 8 persons. Nice food. Big portion of food, there were leftover. The double boiled chicken soup and seafood fried rice were tasty.... More

Extremely great food and service. A great place for lunch and dinner in groups. Booking in advance will be great to prevent long waiting time as it can get crowded at meal times

We were here for lunch and manage to get a room. The setup is normal but provide sufficient privacy. One dish to try is their chili fish, taste refresh and not too spicy. Their braised pork trotters are nicely cook, soft but tender. They serve good yum paste for dessert too.

Totally agree with other reviewers, service @ Lao Bei Jing sucks. Waiting staff are only keen in pushing tea, appetizers (chargerable but placed on your table without being ordered) and towels to customers. Tasteless food in small portion for the price charged. Requested for empty bowl, it takes forever to come. Such a place has the cheek to charge 10%... More
