Classic and contemporary interpretations of the much loved Xiao Long Bao and La Mian are just some of the delights to savour at Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao. A charming, rustic ambiance with a distinctively bold and modern twist, Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao is a casual dining experience that will delight the senses.
what can i say about this place which nobody already knows? Food is good, value for money. Pefect place for lunch / dinner with colleagues, friends and family. I like the xiao long bao and lamian best. Roast duck here is also pretty good.
One have to go right into the behind shops at basement. This restaurant is rather small, compared to others. But the dishes that we have ordered, turned out to be dishes. The staff at there were very nice to help us to spread out the food. As the space at there really quite limited, but cosy as well.
Service is fast and the hand-made noodles are nice. The Sze Chuan noodles have a good level of spiciness so if you like spicy food, this is a must try. I'll definitely be back for other dishes!

Of all the million eateries in Bugis Junction, Crystal Jade La Mian XLB probably ranks as my first choice. This Shanghainese-style eatery under the formidable Crystal Jade Group consistently churns out decent fare at very affordable prices.
1) Pork Dumplings with Spicy Chilli Sauce ($7.50): fat, juicy wantons in a pool of vinegar and soy and chilli mix. The wantons, stuffed generously with fresh pork mince and chopped leafy greens, was nicely lifted by the bright acidity of the piquant sauce
2) Sautéed French Bean with minced pork and olive leaf ($12): a must-try here. The greens are nicely charred with "wok hei" and the mei cai imparts just the right amount of saltiness. A sprinkle of chilli bits lent a subtle heat
3) Deep-Fried Beancurd with Salt and Pepper ($7.50) was one helluva addictive snack. Smooth plain bite-sized beancurd cubes were thinly coated with flour and fried to a pretty golden hue, and tossed in a grounded salt and pepper seasoning
4) Double Boiled Chicken Soup ($8.80): despite the noticeable MSG seasoning, this was superbly comforting. This had nice depth of flavour and an old-school homecooked quality about it
