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

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.

Thought would be a good idea to have a lunch at Peach Garden. Pleasantly surprised by the superb quality of the food. The shark cartilage soup with bee hoon was really unique. The soup base was heavenly - Chinese version of Ramen but with all the health goodness. Service was impeccable and prompt. The coconut based desserts are worth ordering.

Buy their roasted pig if you are looking into buffet celebration, birthday celebration, anniversary celebration, etc. Very fragrant, crispy and definitely delicious and appealing as well.

How Standards Have Plummeted

After a long hiatus of almost 7 years, we were back again at Peach Garden @ 33 for lunch. My last dim sum experience with the Peach Garden brand was rather mediocre so my hopes weren't high.

Carpeted floors, plush fabric seats and wooden paneling; classic decor of a slightly more upmarket Chinese restaurant. Comfortable but nothing out of the ordinary. Window seats are of course much sought after but those need to be booked a little in advance, something which we failed to do.

Seafood Soup in Melon - The old cucumber soup (老黄瓜汤) was nicely presented in a tall cucumber with its center carved out. Though filled up with bits of chicken, mushrooms, fish maw, prawns and dried scallops, the soup was rather bland and could do with more time on the stove. Lacking the punch the Imperial Treasure's rendition offers.

Jellyfish with Spicy Sauce - Nicely crunchy with a rather strong spicy kick. Great as an appetiser.

Siew Mai with Phoenix Prawn - Featuring a crunchy, whole prawn atop a not overly fatty meat and prawn mixture, the siew mai was pretty nice without coming across as too oily.

Prawn Dumpling - Crunchy prawns amidst a lightly elastic but a tad thick, translucent skin. Palatable.

Beancurd Skin Roll with Seaweed - Visually, this somewhat reminded me of CP's seaweed chicken roll but tasted alot better in my humble opinion. A crisp layer of beancurd skin enveloping prawns and bounded by a ring of fresh tasting seaweed for that faint taste of the ocean. Dipping one in the accompanying worcester sauce imbued it with a nice sourish hint.

Rice Roll with Prawn - Crunchy prawns missing a silky cheong fun skin. What a mismatch.

Fish Noodles with Live Prawns - In retrospect, this was probably the best dish of the afternoon. Delightfully chewy fish noodles stir fried in black sauce for a mildly salty and sweet taste and served with fresh prawns of varying sizes.

Custard Bun - Peach Garden's hallowed custard bun; the untouchable #1 on my custard bun list. Now rocking the bottom of the barrel with it's flat bun, sourish dough and awfully sweet filling. Where's the saltiness and the coarse texture of the egg yolk sediment? Probably one of the worst custard buns I've eaten to date. And I kid you not.

Spare Rib with Spicy Sauce - The spare rib used to be one of Peach Garden's highlights and was what drew us here (we would specifically drop by PG from time to time to take away their spare ribs). But even after waiting for close to 25 mins for this dish (after all the dishes had been cleared), it turned out to be one of the worst disappointments, alongside the custard bun. The spare rib had way too much fat and came across as dry, salty and spicy (due to a blot of chilli oily atop) with a lingering ginger taste from the grated ginger in the meat. The only consolation was the stalk of broccoli by the side and the mildly sweet onion below. Apparently the restaurant was experimenting with a new recipe. Gosh.
