Why wait till the weekends for Dim Sum feast when you can indulge in Hai Tien Lo’s weekday Dim Sum Buffet?  Award-winning Hai Tien Lo serves classic Cantonese cuisine, in a regal Oriental setting. What we liked-quality morsels, awesome setting and professional service for only $48++. However we weren’t fond of several restrictions on the menu. Diners can have unlimited orders for 15 dim sum selections, but only one serving for each Chef’s Signatures, one serving of soup and 2 servings of dessert. For Hai Tien Lo Specialty (12 in total), each table is limited to only 3 choices.

It’s such a pity that I could only choose one selection out of the 2 soups on the menu. Of course, I went for the more atas Fish Maw with Shredded Abalone and Crab Meat Soup. The sweet crab meat complimented the tasty broth while the generous portion of ingredients gave the thick broth a nice bite.  Wished for a couple more bowls but oh well! The other choice was traditional double-boiled soup by the way.

There’re 4 Chef’s Signatures and each person is  allowed one serving each. For something decadent, go for the Steamed Pastry Tart with Whole Abalone and Seafood.

Baked Chicken tart with Mushrooms and Mango. The mango adds a touch of sweetness to the savory ingredients encased in the buttery tart.

Steamed Dumpling with Swiftlet Nest, White Fungus and Prawn Paste. Lovely presentation, but this didn’t leave much of an impression.

Stir-fried Carrot Cake with Dried Scallops in Chef’s Signature Homemade Chilli Sauce. It’s alright; I’ve tried better XO carrot cake elsewhere.

We had the following from the Hai Tien Lo Specialty… Juicy and tender Barbecued DuckDeep-fried Prawns with Oat Flakes. Hugh, fresh and succulent prawns paired with fragrant oats was simply a match made in heaven.

Fresh and delicate Steamed Fillet of Grouper Fish with Vermicelli in Minced Chilli.

The dim sum we ordered from the All-You-Can-Eat section were all competently executed, with some outstanding morsels. Steamed Dumpling Soup with Crab Meat, Fish Maw, Scallops and Prawns in Superior stock.

Steamed Xiao Long Bao

Steamed Dumplings with Scallops, Prawns, Asparagus and Carrots.

Creative and intriguing, the Deep-fried Purple Potato Balls with Minced Chicken and assorted mushrooms should not be missed.

Pan fried Rice Flour Rolls with Chef’s Signature Homemade XO Chilli sauce. Pillowy Steamed Barbecued Honey Pork Bun Buns

Deep-fried Prawns and Salted Egg Dumplings with Bread Crumbs. Rave alert!

To sum up, $48++ per adult is fantastic value for the variety, taste and quality offered at Hai Tien Lo. There’ll always be something new to look forward to, as the menu refreshes every 3 months.

The luxurious yu sheng

a great choice for CNY

You can usher in the year of the wooden goat with the luxurious yu sheng at Pan Pacific's excellent Chinese restaurant. The lavish dish is plump with prosperous ingredients like lobster, Alaskan crab, Hokkaido scallops, Norwegian salmon and Japanese Kelp. Priced between $38-$228.

Delicious canton cuisine

Highly recommend this place for special occasions. Have organised many family birthdays as well as business meetings here. Food, ambiance and service here is 5-stars. Don't forget to try the dim sums.

One of the best Chinese restaurants in town

For full review and pictures, do visit therantingpanda.com The launch of “A Glorious Decade – Six course menu” is to commemorate Hai Tien Lo’s Master Chef Lai Tong Ping’s ten years in the restaurant. The special six course menu captures the essence of Hai Tien Lo, by showcasing ten items of Chef Lai’s specialities. Priced at $108++ per person (minimum two diners), this celebratory six-course menu is available till 31 December 2014. We were fascinated by the creative names of each dish from the starter to the dessert as we were browsing through the menu, which whetted our appetites even before the food was served. The first dish wowed our senses instantly. Aptly named Prelude to Gastronomy Discovery, it consists of the Braised Homemade Beancurd with Minced Pork and Pine, Sliced Barbecued Duck and Shredded Jelly Fish and Crispy Prawn in Sesame Sauce.

Weekday Dim Sum Buffet - Recommended only for the Chef's Specialty but not the unlimited Dim Sum!

For full review & photos, please visit: http://summerlovestoeat.blogspot.sg/2014/07/weekday-dim-sum-buffet-at-hai-tien-lo.html
Overall i felt only the first page and the last page of the menu were worth to order.. The 2nd page of the unlimited dim sum selection were mostly disappointing... Chef has to improve or revamp your unlimited dim sum selection again...
Service was quite good initially when there was no crowd but after more tables were filled up, we couldn't find any staff at our area for quite some time as they were busy taking orders from other tables or inside the kitchen so need to be patient sometimes..

The only thing i don't like was the lady staff in very short hair with glasses at the reception, did not put on any smile or greet us when we arrived. I thought we shouldn't see this kind of service from the 5 star hotel restaurant?
