Dinner a la carte buffet.you can made up to max 3 order from the menu. The braised pig trotter, fried sea bass, praen with wasabi, and many more sumptuous dishes. Great place for family dinner.

Let me give a breakdown on the food I tried, from passable to bad in stardard. 1. Signature Cheong Fun $8.50 -... More

This place in the Far East Square (not China Square) food complex adjacent to the Amoy hotel has ample (retro) curb appeal, the young waitstaff are very nice, & the food was generally quite good (deep fried fish skin, fish noodle with spicy Teochew sauce, steamed crystal dumplings). The fish skin was delicately crispy, if a bit oily, the noodles... More

I had dinner with a friend at TungLok Tea House. The restaurant appeared busy and we were lucky to get seating (on a Saturday) without reservation. We went primarily vegetarian and the food was really good, with authentic Chinese flavours. The service was okay, but really it more more efficiency than warmth and friendliness. We had received the wrong bill... More

All the pictures uploaded are all very delicious. Service was prompt and good, deserved a star and a happy... More

We enjoyed a meal at Tung Lok while staying at a nearby hotel. As Australians we stood out as being about the only non-locals in the restaurant. We weren't disappointed with the meal or service. Flavours were great. Not a real lot to choose from on the drinks menu, so this is not the place to go if you want... More

I'm a Singaporean, and to me... it's difficult to find a restaurant that serves good dim sum at a reasonable price. I noticed this restaurant for some times... but never thot of trying... we had a gathering here for dim sum as lunch. Firstly, it's not very crowded on a Saturday... we paid a bill of Ard $105 for 3... More

Mad Poet is a real find. They do great food with some excellent value choices for lunch. They also do some great wines and nice prices to match. The service is always nice and friendly. The location and outdoor is also great. What more can you want from a casual dining venue in Singapore? Great for drinks and snacks with... 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.
