Red Star Restaurant is a middle-class restaurant started jointly by four top Singapore chefs in the 70′s. The philosophy of economical, value-for-money, and tasty food lives on in Red Star.


In Red Star Restaurant, you will find that nostalgic feeling of being in an authentic yum cha house, with the waitresses pushing the dim sum carts around the place, filling the place with vibrant vibes and whiffs of dim sum. Red Star Restaurant is definitely the place to go for authentic Cantonese cuisine at a good price.

Brought the husband to experience dim sum in the 80s... I told him earlier this place resemblance scenes from his young time favourite 古惑仔movie..

腐皮seafood roll, crispy and fresh, the husband enjoyed this. The xiao long bao and har gao on the other hand wasn't very impressive, dont bother.. Miss out the other must order dish mention by Pokka, the egg tarts!! It is mother's day today, too many people and too little dimsum, if you dont line up in front of the dimsum cart, most probably you end up having nothing on your table, it is that jialat.. we picked a wrong date for dimsum...

BTW they served pretty good congee and mango pudding (my soft spot), do order those if you visit :)

Some where great for breakfast/brunch/lunch. However don't expect great service. Would say their service isn't up to mark for anywhere.

I see the reviews mention that the egg tarts is nice. But after I have tried it today, I am very disappointed. The custard is not crispy, I think is because less butter added to it and tasteless.
The suckling pig cost $18 exclude GST and service charge, very small portion. I am very disappointed too. It should b crispy, the meat tender and moist but is NOT!
