Quality Traditional Chinese Food

Peach Garden has been a mainstay for a long time, and its due to its ability to consistently provide good quality Chinese food.

Some items to try are their soups, which are strong in flavour. An example is the fish maw soup, in which fresh fish maw is used with strong chicken broth to create a smooth finish on a rainy day.

Other items to try are their fresh fish, evident in the lack of fishy smell when steamed.

Finally, their fried rice also has a good level of wok hei.

Overall, an ideal place to take the family for a nice celebratory lunch or dinner.

Not worthwhile unless doing biz lunch in the area with no better alternatives

Went for lunch on a weekend. Dim sum selection limited and not well executed. Dumpling skins were thick, rubbery and steamed too long. Pork buns and custard buns were ok, and the latter delightful even. Spring roll was all spring roll skin and hardly any of the promised filling of crab, totally devoid of promised salted egg. Rice rolls with cha siew thick and sub-par. Pastry dim sum (baked char siew buns etc) not well done either.

Roast pork was nice but expensive for a few silvers. Peking duck was good. Used the meat to cook mee, which was tad salty. But must thank waiter who help me amend bill - peking duck was ordered as an aftermath, had ordered mee at first without the duck and would have ended up paying full price for both items if waiter didn't help. If you order peking duck, you only pay nominal amount for mee instead of full price.

Desserts ok only. Typical.

Had issues with getting attention of staff. Waited eons before they came. Not prompt in clearing plates (unless they want you out, it appears) or refilling tea.

Errors in bill - so do check carefully. Hate that they try to do multiple bills for different tables (using only one staff) because it makes people wait until they clear the whole stack and have mix-ups.

Peach Garden Chinese Restaurant is a well known brand for exquisite Cantonese cuisine. Since the opening of the first Peach Garden outlet at Novena Gardens in 2002, they have received numerous accolades and awards from renowned publications such as Singapore Tatler’s Best Restaurants Guide and Singapore Top Restaurants Award from Wine & Dine.   We were bringing a friend around town and decided to have dim sum at the Peach Garden OCBC Centre restaurant as it is known to have a great view of the city.   Only a small selection of dim sum items are available, i noted only 18 items.    Century Egg Porridge is a must order for me when eating dim sum. Good gluey consistency of the congee and there was plenty of shredded pork. Love the crispy crackers on top too.    Peach Garden supposedly has one of the better Steamed Creamy Custard Buns ($5.20) around. The buns were fluffy and light but i found the texture a little too gelatinous and it lacked that 'liu sha' (flowing lava) feel. Taste wise, it was satisfactory but i thought it could do with a richer salted egg yolk taste.   Baked Mini Egg Tarts ($4.80) were delightful but yea on the pricey side because they're so mini. But yea love the wobbly egg custard on top of the lovely puff pastry.   Deep fried Prawn and Fresh Avocado Roll ($6) had an identity crisis and the Deep fried Savoury Yam Pudding with Minced Meat and Portugal Sauce ($5.20) was soaked in oil.    Service was BLEARGH. Well it started with the staff being rather pushy when i was ordering our first round of dim sum. Was met with some outwardly disdain by the staff (due to my small order) which i absolutely do not appreciate. Do i look like i can't afford dimsum? So i reigned in my unhappiness because i was hosting a friend.   Long story short, the screw up was when they absolutely messed up our second order which took forever to come and when it did 30 mins later, it was wrong.    The Steamed BBQ Pork Bun ($4.80) attempted to calm me down a little. Juicy well marinated strips of char siew enveloped by the softest pillow bun.   What happened after the meal was an instagram post on the meal and me complaining about how terrible the service was. I have to applaud the Peach Garden Marketing/PR team for resolving the issue immediately. Good service recovery i must say. I've been informed that the staff involved have been counselled. I don't know if it's special treatment because i'm a food blogger but i would like to give them the benefit of doubt.   So yea, hits and misses at the Peach Garden OCBC Centre. If you're looking for decent dimsum with a view, it's ok. Well on the service end, it really depends, no matter where you go.

Sophisticated dim sum

It is a nice venue and they do care about your food and quality. Too bad the staff is not good yet.
