This restaurant chain made a name for itself with its Hong Kong-style menu of dim sum, noodles and rice dishes. It has grown and diversified to include many different kinds of outlets, such as some fine dining outlets, some serving northern Chinese specialities like xiao long bao and others specialising in Korean food.
Celebrated my dad's birthday there & the food was excellent as what can be expected from Crystal Jade. The pan fried Chee cheong fun was a really good. How what really impressed me was the excellent service provided by the whole team. The waitresses n captain were really polite and attended to all our requests with a smile! Really wonderful experience to dine here!
We had lunch at this place a few years ago and plain forgot that it existed. Had inner with 7 other persons.
Food: All dishes have a Hakka slant, ordered the yam with braised duck, bamboo shoot with salted fish, tofu with minced pork, fish soup in rice gruel, pork with old preserved vegetables. All dishes were tasty, most memorable was the rice gruel soup with fish, light, tasty and not over salted. Wish the pork were fresh pork instead of the frozen pork tough, the porcine taste came across quite strongly.
Value: Decent value.
Service: It was about 80% full and service from Singaporen staff was good.
Ambience: Quiet, not overly packed, gave us a chance to catch up !
I had dine at this outlet on several occasions and have previously order the roast duck meat. I will request for the leg portion when placing my order. At my last visit this evening, I was told that I need to pay $2 more for the leg portion. This is not on the menu and I have previously ordered the leg portion without this surcharge. This is unbecoming of a restaurant who add surcharges inconsistently.
I would recommend you have roast duck meat at Dian Xiao Er - no issue in pricing whether you take leg or breast.
People don't go to this branch. This truly doesnt live up to the Crystal Jade reliability. Food is not to par, and the service is worst. Yes, I am equally disgusted by his long nails. Finally someone wrote about this waiter's nails. This is a restaurant where hyginene is the foremost fundamental thing apart from the food and quality service. This is not a nail or hair parlour.
And yes the fried rice looks like some garbage food. Made up of leftover diced lousy shrimps, diced leftover octopus. And worse still, the shrimps arent fresh most of the time. They are 'floury'.
And yes they charge a whooping 12 dollars plus, plus service charge and gst, a horrifying 14 dollars plus for a plate of garbage food. And it taste plain. Tasteless and truly colourless. I have not tried the yang chow fried rice, but how good can it be when a seafood fried rice had been that poorly done? Where's the seafood? I only see and taste chunks of white rice. It is that plain and that colourless.
I never go there again. I rather take bus down to orchard and dine at other branches.
Don't go there people. Not to mention the stupid lame service you will get. They treat customers as idiots, they take customers for granted. And the shrimps are never fresh.
