One of the best Chinese restaurants in town

For full review and pictures, do visit 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:
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?

Impressive dim sum buffet everyday of the week

Dim sum all week, every day. Pan Pacific’s level three Cantonese fine dine has a recently revamped its weekday dim sum lunch menu of 35 dishes and desserts, all as decadent as the next - from deep-fried yam paste with foie gras, steamed berkshire pork ‘char siew’ bun to steamed buns with abalone, carrot cake cubes in XO sauce, and swiflet’s nest egg tart. The menu doubles to close to 70 dim sum, soups, signatures and desserts on the weekends with items like gold-dusted steamed steamed vegetarian dumplings and pear-shaped potato dumplings.

Delicious Weekday Dim Sum Buffet

For more reviews, visit my blog at   The special weekday a la carte dim sum lunch menu is created by new Dim Sum Chef Lee Siaw Cheen and diners get to feast on an extensive selection of 35 soups, signature dishes, dim sum and desserts at $48.   There are 4 new enhanced signature dim sum creations which include Deep-fried Yam Puff with Foie Gras, Baked Egg Tart with Imperial Swiflet’s Nest and White Fungus, Steamed Berkshire Pork “Char Siu” Buns and Crispy Carrot Cake with Hai Tien Lo’s Signature XO Sauce. These are limited to one serving each per guest.   Of the lot, the Berkshire Pork “Char Siu” Buns was absolutely heavenly. Juicy and succulent meat in a delicious barbecue sauce lovingly wrapped by a fluffy sweet bun. But why only 1 serving?? :( I also liked the carrot cake which has nice chunks of radish and chinese sausage. This is best paired with the spicy XO sauce.   Diners also get unlimited servings of the classic dim sum. The Wok-seared Spinach Dumplings may look really green on the outside but it's also packed with juicy minced pork inside. Delicious!   The Deep-fried Pork Dumpling “Ham Shui Gok”. It's really crispy on the outside but has a mochi-like texture inside and it is filled with juicy pork with mushrooms. When eaten all at once, it tastes like a Hakka Abacus Seed  算盘子.   If dimsum alone doesn't fill you up, there are also 9 Hai Tien Lo Signatures to pick from which includes hearty dishes like Szechuan Spicy chicken, Grouper fish fillet and Cantonese Sweet and Sour Spare Ribs.. Each table is limited to one serving of any three items.   The Homemade Bean Curd with Crab Meat and Eggplant in Supreme Stock comes highly recommended. Absolutely silky and fragrant tofu in a carrot, radish and chicken supreme stock. Slurps!   If you like something fried (who doesn't), the Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with Pepper Sauce is rather delightful. Just work it off later really.   What is a Cantonese meal without soup right? Pick from either the Traditional Double-Boiled Soup or the Lobster with Shredded Abalone and Vegetables in Thick Broth (one serving of any one item per person). The little green puffs are made of vegetables. Now you can drink your greens too!   For desserts, i went with the Double-boiled Osmanthus Tea with Pear and White Fungus which is light and refreshing. I liked that it's not too sweet.   The Mango Sago with Pomelo was a hot favorite. This drinks like a mango smoothie and is surprisingly light as well. If there's more space in your dessert tummy, you could go with the Black Sesame Paste with Glutinous Rice Dumpling.   So here you go, Hai Tien Lo's Weekday Dim Sum Buffet. It's perfect for business lunches and definitely for times when you simply just need to treat yourself.
