Tasty and quick Dim Sum place in Singapore with less of a wait time than other joints. Also the price is more affordable. Recommended!

I remember paint by numbers as a kid. Here we have a restaurant that copes with the language barriers by offering choice by numbers. Look at the menu pics, correspond that with the order form and your food arrives. The dim sum we sampled included the house special prawn dumpling (good) shanghai pork dumpling (good) Phoenix prawn (good) breaded chillie crab (excellent) paper wrapped curry chicken (excellent). I would happily go back for more but the beers were far too warm

Excellent people-watching corner, fresh dim-sim, ice-cold beer. Nothing was soggy or stale. Kitchen staff and servers and cashier were all hard-working and pleasant, even if English was minimal.

Lots of places, the pictures on the menus are nicer than the final product. At Mongkok? It is just the opposite - often the food was more generous (esp. the plated dishes!) than the pictures.

The only thing lacking was the atmosphere - it is an older shop, so don't expect a fancy carted service on faux velvet chairs here. This is decidedly more Hong Kong style dim sum than fancier upscale yum cha.

Quality dim sum? Wide selection? Good service? Triple check! :D

Place is not diffcult to find, and staff were friendly, unlike some dim sum staffs at other places, whom are less friendly than usual.

Food wise, they are not stingy with their ingredients, such as prawns, crab meat etc, and furthermore, the meat were fresh! I especially love their 3 yolk crab porridge. They open till 5am which i think is great for late night suppers. I think they are better than those dim sum places i have been too.
