Peony Jade Restaurant is a great place to dine and offer wines for all great occasions. It is a no MSG added type of restaurants in their prepared dishes so expected that only the freshest ingredients are used to highlight the natural goodness and flavours of the dishes.

In celebration of its 12th Anniversary of gourment glory, Peony Jade has introduced a new At Home In Peony Jade ala carte menu. These dishes will be available from 1 June 2016 onward.
There are 7 savoury dishes and 2 Dim Sum. The first to be served was the Appetiser Platter. On it were 3 items. First was the Chinos Salad consisting of Crispy Duck Salad 手撕香酥鴨沙律 ($18 per serving). Next was the Suckling Pig served with Otak wrapped in Vietnamese Rice Roll Wrap 么么袋乌打片皮乳猪全体 ($268). This is good for 10 guests. And finally, ended it with the strongest in flavour, the Marinated Drunken Clams 品醉蚶 ($10-S/$15-M/$20-L). This last appetiser item is quite spicy. The marinate were strong to mask the unpleasant clams flavours.
Next is a soup, the Tea-Pot Soup contains the double-boiled Conch Chicken Consomme with Black Garlic 功夫茶(黑蒜炖螺头汤) ($18 per tea pot). The serving is good for 2 guests. I am not one who loves my soup, but I totally enjoyed this to the max. The black garlic enhances the flavours. It is so delish till I finished the entire bowl. This is extremely rare.
Peony Jade has introduced 2 Cantonese Pai-Tong dishes (Claypot dishes) to the At Home In Peony Jade New Menu. First of which is the Stewed Egg Plant with Hand-peeled Crabmeat in Claypot ($38). I find the overall taste a little bland. The fragrance and scent of the sauce rest only on the surface of the egg plant. It is really a pity that the essence didn’t get into the the egg plant.
The second claypot dish is the Braised Oxtail with Red wine 红酒焖牛尾煲 ($38). I totally enjoyed the flavour as it is rich. The flavour from the sauce penetrated into the Oxtail meat. The best way to enjoy the sauce is to dip the fried Mantou into the sauce.
The last savoury dish is the Roasted Crispy Chicken stuffed with Glutinous Rice and preserved meats 腊味脆皮糥米鸡 ($58). Its alias is Gai Mai Lo. It is an inverted Lo Mai Gai as the glutinous rice with the diced preserved Chinese Sausage is stuffed in a de-boned whole Chicken. It is fried to perfection before serving.
Finally, some sweet desserts that will be available as part of the Dim Sum Menu. There are 2 items. My favourite being the Deep-fried Sesame Molten Dumplings Filled With Taro Paste and Salted Egg Yolk served with Coconut Ice-cream ($12 per 3 pieces). The ball consists of a molten lava Taro Paste and Salted Egg. The layer of complex flavours simply combined together perfectly.
The Coconut Ice Cream was rich in coconut flavour, smooth and lightly sweetened. Lastly is the Steamed Molten Choc-On-Bao ($7.50 per 3 pieces) were equally good though there isn’t much surprise elements when compared to the Deep-Fried Sesame Ball.
The must order are the Double-boiled Conch Consomme with Black Garlic and the Deep-Fried Sesame Molten Dumplings filled with Taro Paste & Salted Egg Yolk.

Previously food experience with Peony Jade at Clarke Quay was like heaven. The food quality and standard was superb and definitely, Im all willingly to go back for it. Tried their buffet dinner and was equally thumb up.
However, experience at Keppel Club was terrible and worst food standard I have ever eat. I can totally describe it as hell vs heaven to Clarke quay branch.
Their one serving compliment dish was nothing fantastic and nice. The seafood are not fresh, the cooking taste lose to those coffee shop zi char stall. Also to mention, the most standard cripsy chicken with prawn paste was obviously refried and refried. Is this the standard of restaurant?
Overall, nothing is nice. I cant even recall any food that is worth to mention. The dessert was also equally bad.
The management of Peony Jade should really look into this badly. Totally, ban this branch and really not recommending to anyone.
Peony Jade Clarke Quay should be the choice instead.

I guessed sometimes when the restaurant is crowded, the service level will be depends on our luck. But we were lucky that the service rendered to us was very good! They tried their best to refill our tea, cleared and changed our plates regularly despite it was crowded. The only hitch here was the waiting time of the food was quite long so have to be a little more patient.
The food here were mostly decent but look out for their Famous Yummy Steamed 'Lava' Bao with Creamy Salted Yolk and Wok Fried Creamy Egg Yolk Prawn! With the deal.com voucher is worth a visit to this cosy oriental ambience as there were so many food to eat!
You can purchase the deal voucher in my above link! Do note that the cost of beverages, towels and appetiser are not included in the deal voucher. Don't feel shy, you can always return the towel and appetiser to them upon seated to avoid unneccesary additional cost. :)
