Was here for luch with my colleague and sad to say that the standard of the food and services had dropped since my last visit.

The service was slow and was astonished to hear the captain complained:"everyone was calling and calling" when i called for her and heard her complaining under her voice. This is simply unexceptable, espacially from a captain. She needs to understand that the calling was due to the slow service or the absence of it. I am been very fair here as the restaurant is not even one-third full as we were here for a weekday lunch. The dishes were cold when they come and the porridge was even worse than the ones i had at hawker centre as it was thin, watery and cold.

I guess i will not be visiting this place again and its sad as i was here since my school days. The atmosphere is good though, typical classic chinese restaurant settings. But its stil a restaurant and thus, the food and service must be good too.

Very shiok dimsum. The staff will push a cute trolley around and you can select a wide variety of dimsum when the trolley reaches your table. Eat scallop rice roll, very delicious! The rest of the dimsum I tried were quite normal meaty ones to me. For durian lovers, must try durian puff. Extremely cold and thick durian, a definite fulfilling dessert to end the day. Usually crowded and noisy. Bookings recommended!

If you want the Dim Sum the old and great traditional way Red Star is à great place for you. It has been around fir 45 plus years and never changed. The location feels strange but the restaurant is everything you can expect from a genuine Chinese restaurant. You will meet local people and the food experience is something out of the ordinary. Go to Red Star and you will meet some authentic Singapore, there are so few left

Carrot cake. Lotus-leaf wrapped sticky rice. All their dimsum, don't even ask what's in it, just grab and eat (unless you're not a meat eater). The scallops wrapped and steamed in a single, giant rice noodle. Really solid fare for Sunday brunch.

A word of advice. Don't wait for the trolleys to come to you if the room is crowded. Ambush the trolley ladies as they emerge from the kitchen, and rape them of their steambaskets. Otherwise, expect to be sitting there for a long time with no food.

The bill was 90 SINGAPORE Dollars, for 4 people.

This restaurant was recommend by our taxi driver, and is found just before China Town, on the top level of a car park building. The food was very good and plenty of it, service good.
