Dining options: Reservations
Neighborhood: Orchard Road
Description: Having been around since 1992, Hua Ting is a Cantonese institution that is well-recognised for its exquisite ethnic cuisine and other provincial specialties. It’s no wonder then that the crowd keeps coming back for its delightful weekend dim sum.

“Average Chinese food”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The restaurant is located in the Ochard Hotel in Singapore. We came early on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was not full. The wine choice is decent but expensive and the decent wines are only sold by the bottle. The wine by the glas was average but ok. Food was decent but nothing special. Overall not bad but there are better local chinese food restaurants than Hua Ting.

“No longer great”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Was there yesterday for business lunch. Surprisingly, it was half full even at the peak lunch time. Hua Ting used to be one of the best Chinese restaurants in Singapore serving very good Dim Sum and Cantonese cuisine. The food we had was quite ordinary especially the dim sum. Not so sure why the food quality standard has dropped but for service wise, it is still excellent. I hope to revisit this restaurant again and see some improvements just like the good old days.

“Unprofessional”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Arrived 10 minutes before the restaurant opened. Was told by a service staff to wait. That was fine. When the restaurant finally did open it's doors, the male host told us that it was fully booked and that there was no way that they could accommodate us. He wasn't even apologetic.
It doesn't say anywhere on the website that the restaurant only accepts guests with reservations. It is also unacceptable for a hotel that claims to be an upscale hotel to book it's restaurants up so fully that there is no table for walk-ins.
We've heard good things about the food, but this service is a real put-off. You're better off taking your money across the street to Yan Ting at The St. Regis.

We proceeded downstairs to Noodles as an alternative, only to be told that the place was "not ready" and would open at 1130 even though it clearly stated 11 as the opening time on the menu!

We're never coming back to this hotel.

“Very friendly, warm and attentive Staff”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Was there for lunch (Tim Sum) sometimes in July. It was our first visit. Staff were very friendly and attentive right at entrance to those who took our orders. Our plates were constantly changed even though the restaurant was full. Will definitely return again to try other food in menu. Keep up the good work to the service crew !
