Good Dim Sum and Ala Carte Chinese Dishes!

I have been to this restaurant on multiple occasions . For lunch, instead of steamboat, which you need to cook and it can be quite time-consuming, you can opt for dim sum and ala carte dishes.   As it was a business meeting, we opted for the ala carte and dim sum options.   Here are the meal highlights: - Soup with Prawn Dumpling (Shui Jiao): soup is rich and the dumpling had minced pork, black fungus and prawns. It was filling. - Prawn Dumpling (Har Kow): One of the best I have eaten. Its moist inside and ingredients were fresh. Recommended. - Pork Dumpling (Siew Mai): Best eaten when its served to the table, when its hot! - Beef Ball: This is a Cantonese dim sum. Minced beef rolled into a ball and steamed. Served with a sauce that reminds me of Worchester sauce. Chewy and nice. - Steamed Radish with Prawn and Conpoy: this was nice. Radish was soft and the sauce for the dish was tasty. - Mee Pok with Minced Pork and sliced Brinjal: The noodles were nicely stewed with the minced pork adding flavor to the dish. Try it! - Steamed Custard Bun: Steamed bun with a salted egg yolk and custard bun. Eat it cautiously, as the filling is hot and may scald you when you bite into it. - Red Bean Paste Dessert: Red bean paste that has been cooked with dry orange peel. It has a nice citrus-sy flavor and I couldn’t stop till I finished the whole bowl.   Good quality dim sum that always hit the mark.   Highly recommended!

Comparatively not as good as the other outlets

I'll be very honest with this review.

We visited this outlet mainly to try out, and also after feedback from a friend within the group that the food quality seems better than the other outlet at ION.

Disappointed with the level of service.  Though we went in early, and the restaurant was not really packed then, the service was comparatively less prompt.  The staff appears to be impatient when we request for second and third helpings of the condiments.  Not that we will like to bother them that much, but the server seems b=very keen to keep the condiments away from the table.  Well, of course I must admit that I have friends within the group who practically clean-sweep the parsley during each serving.

Food quality was acceptable.  But the overall experience is very much dampened by the human factor.  Will stick to the ION outlet for future visits.

One of most Luxurious Steamboats

This place is the ideal place to have good, quality steamboat in the comfort of posh environment. 

The soup base available includes the familiar chicken soup, pork bones soup and the unconventional satay soup and more; varieties are always welcome. Even the chicken soup and pork bone soup here, are like no others found in other steamboat establishments, obviously, the ingredients had been cooked for a certain amount of time to imbue the stock with strong, fragrant flavours. I found the ginseng soup base to be too bitter for steamboat and its price is too expensive, so this one can be skipped.   Patrons will be given a tray of condiments (about 12 of them) to make a customized mixture of sauce that truly suits one's preferences. Though the chopped garlic lacks that pungent smell I expect from freshly chopped garlic.   There are choice ingredients like live prawns, kurobuta pork, dumplings, freshly made fishballs (with minimum flour used, good!), vegetables, spring rolls and more in the menu up for ordering. My personal opinion is that the Tang O vegetable is too expensive (top in price among all vegetables) and has a bitter taste, so it is best to avoid ordering this. A better choice is the baby spinach that has a neutral taste, therefore fully absorbing the essence of the broth.

The service is decent also. Though all these come with a hefty price tag. This is still worth for that occasional indulgence. Have become a regular of this place already! However, I notice that the price of the items have been steadily increasing ...
