Have heard a lot about this restaurant that specialized in Teochew cuisine. Taking an opportunity in attending a calligraphy exhibition at the club (by the way, the club support many such art exhibitions), I invited my friend for a lunch at the restaurant on a Saturday. The external and internal look of the club house, where the restaurant is located is excellent and it gives an "exclusive" feeling of the restaurant even though it is open to the public. The setting and ambiance of the restaurant matches the club house so it is not out of place. Surprisingly not too crowded on a Saturday afternoon and we were given a table immediately. Staff are friendly and know the menu very well and able to give us recommendation and the amount of food we ordered. Most importantly the food is great, our main dish was the crab with vermicelli in a claypot and it was cooked to perfection. Price is a little on the high side, but fully justifiable if taking the overall experience of ambiance, service and food quality into consideration.

Half of the dishes we ordered took a long time to be served. We were kept waiting for the other half of the dishes and the lunch stretched over our expectation. It was only after we enquired a couple of times about the unserved dishes that it was looked into. It appeared the unserved dishes weren't even prepared. The rice and porridge which we were eating and keeping so they cld accompany the unserved dishes had turned too cold by the time the long awaited dishes were served. It marred the experience and we were disappointed.

We had the set lunch for 10 pax. Was very good especially the fish maw soup and braised duck. Very packed on weekends. The fried oyster omelette though is an authentic teochew cuisine but it was not great.

Housed in Chui Huay Lim club, this restaurant is open to public. There is so much parking space inside and its Teochew Food is fresh and superb. We started with steam crab that was chilled, and it was so fresh. Our steam fish were so yummy. The yam paste dessert was so tasty. Service was excellent.

Not many Teochew restaurants left in Singapore. This is one of my parents’ favourite restaurants. Always packed but service always good.
