Jade Room Restaurant (Newton)


Authentic Peking Cuisine was introduced first to Singapore by Master Chef, Poon Sai Chin from Hong Kong. His culinary skills came from Beijing, Mainland China. In 1971, he opened the Jade Room Restaurant. It becomes an instant success island wide for genuine Peking dishes including tim-sum and Mongolian steamboat. Master Chef Poon later launched "Tropical Peking-style Steamboat Buffet", the first in Southeast Asia. Second generation Chief Chef Sunny Poon Shu Yuen now controls the kitchen.

Peking Duck - Personal Fav

I have always enjoyed my visits to Jade Room after being recommended my a friend. This time round, the occasion is Father's Day. I continue to avoid the steamboat and just stick to my personal favourite - Peking Duck.

I called in advance to book the duck so as to cut down the waiting time. When i arrived, then i ordered the rest of the dinner course:

1)Peking Duck

2) Egg White steamed with crab meat and scallop

3) Steamed fish with chai po

4) Crispy wrap with duck meat

5) Milky soup with duck bones

6) Dessert - fried egg white balls with lotus paste

As you can see, we devour the entire duck (skin wraps, meat & bones soup) and that was the sole intention of visiting Jade Room! Captain Katerine was very friendly and accomodating as usual to ensure my family have a private corner for the dinner. I will definitely visit again... just for the duck of course :)

Steamboat buffet.

Read the reviews and thought it was worth a try. The broth for the steamboat was too bland. Though there a quite a variety of meats, all of them are not marinated and tasteless. Was charged $26.40 per person and staff wasn't that friendly. I personally thought that it didn't worth the money. And to

Reasonable Price and Good food!

A good place to have steamboat buffet lunch. Reasonable price,range of food is acceptable. I had a good time stuffing my tummy. They also have a section for cooked food while you cooked your masterpiece. Sesame sauce is a must, you need this for your meat. Remember to try their Peking duck. It'

One night of Peking Duck

Peking duck is delightfully tasty. The ambient of the restaurant is very pleasant with warm lights shining all over, it almost feels like I am in a Beijing restaurant. Service is good and prompt. I would definitely recommend friends & families to come back for more.
