“Pinch of then with dash of now - Sing Yin truely delivers”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

The thirteen of us, young and old had a reunion here when we returned to Hong Kong last month. This was the best we had for this trip.

We first had the starter with Baked scallop,Wok-fried soft shell crab with crispy garlic,Roasted sliced suckling pig and Sesame jelly fish with spicy oil. It show-cased different techniques and flavors with a mixed of vintage Chinese food and a touch of modern elegance. The scallop was
large in portion and flavorsome.

Then we had the “Budda Jump Over the Wall” -Double boiled superior broth with abalone, sea cucumber, fish maw, conpoy, chicken, brassica and black mushroom.

For Mains we first had Stir-fried diced Australian wagyu beef with crispy garlic. We had wagyu beef all the time in Sydney but we never had some with such smooth texture.

The second main was Steamed yellow skin tiger garoupa. The fish was just cooked to perfection in the most traditional way and just reminded us of the good old days.

The next main was a remarkable Wood fried whole crispy goose. The goose was fried in the famous Cantonese Style. It was crispy and the meat was soaked with the inviting fragrance of Lychee.

Then we had Braised seasonal vegetable in fish sauce with Special Fried rice with preserved meat and egg white, ginger in clay casserole. Although we all had eaten enough for the night, we could not give up on the fried rice. It was rich but not oily at all. Clever combinations.

Finally, we had Dessert Plate with Sweetened almond cream with egg white,Baked sweetened bird's nest with custard cream puff and Sweetened date past with yellow bean pudding. It was a perfect ending to the wonderful night.

Salute to the chefs !!!

“Excellent service... terrible food”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

How this restaurant rates so high is a mystery to me. The food was average at best. And certainly not worth the price. I would however like to give credit to the very attentive staff and excellent service from the Manager.

“A great place for family gathering!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

I've hosted the 60YO birthday banquet for my father in Sing Yin. I chose the place because it offers delicious traditional Chinese dishes (no silly fusion stuff) that cheers everyone and the place is just stylish (hardly find another one in town) that fits me :)
One more important thing is that I have two kids. The Sing Yin team also take good care of them and be nice to them. The baby high chairs are always clean, which I give them a lot of credits!! (Not like other restaurants that always put baby seats at backdoor next to some garbage...) Sing Yin is a thoughtful one. One tip for foreign visitors: try those seasonal dishes which always give good surprises!

“Beautiful decor with overpriced, mediocre food”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

As Sing Yin is situated in the W, you would expect an extravagant interior design, and in that, Sing Yin delivered. Everything else fell short...

The food was disappointing. I've had better BBQ'd meats in the local super markets in Hong Kong. The wok-fried Angus was nothing special and the rice and vegetables were average. If you're just visiting Hong Kong, do yourself a favor and eat at a hole-in-the-wall joint or street stall.

Compliments to the staff who were all friendly and helpful.
