“Terrible Food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

What a shame! One of the worst Chinese meals I have ever had. So call authentic Chinese? I think the chef should go and have a meal at the Hilton Wok.
The menu is way overpriced. Food has no taste. Waist of money..
This Chinese restaurant is an insult for Chinese food. I really hope the hotel management would take some action to improve it's food.

“Chinese cuisine at it's best!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Had a great experience at Yue Chuen!
Since I haven't been to China, I can't say with authority that this is authentic Chinese.
BUT this is by far the best Chinese food I have had any where in the world including the far east.

The service was just right. The ambiance was lovely. Most importantly the food was excellent! Had a Chicken,pork, cuttle fish and vegi dish, all were simply delicious.

There was an elderly European couple seated at the next table who were constantly complaining to each and every person about how long the food was taking and were very irate. Once the food arrived not a peep! They were so happy with the food all those complaints tuned to compliments. That's how good the food was. Also the staff and management handled the situation very well.

Definitely will go there again and would recommend it to anyone as well.

Was really impressed with the service. The person named "Nandika" was really helpful. The food is also great. Taste is good compared to other places.

“Authentic Chinese ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

Visited for dinner and was impressed with the quality of food and the service. The recommendation by the staff was excellent and the choice of rice, prawns and fish was a nice blend.

The ambience can be better - the aircon wasn't good and overall it was quite warm and uncomfortable. Also the setting is bland and uninteresting. Being located on a star class hotel - The Kingsbury - we expected the ambience to be 'kingly' but it wasn't. I still rank the Wok @ the Hilton to be a much nicer interior.
