Visited on 20 March 2015 (Fri) during Restaurant Week Lunch. Summer Palace is an authentic Cantonese restaurant with two Hong Kong chefs.


Their service was very good, our tea was always refilled promptly. Food quality was between average to slightly above average for the restaurant week that day. Heard that Summer Palace is a favourite among Singaporeans, they offer extensive dim sum selection during lunch! If you're looking for authentic Cantonese restaurant with good service, this is the place for you!

For full review and pictures, do visit therantingpanda.com Located in the centrally located Regent Singapore hotel near Orchard Road, Summer Palace is one of the most authentic award-winning Cantonese restaurant in Singapore helmed by Executive Chef Liu from Hong Kong. The Food Other than the traditional Cantonese classic dishes on the menu, Summer Palace has launched its special claypot rice menu this Winter season, available from now till 31 January 2015. For the highlights of the claypot rice menu, we simply have to try the Chef Liu’s hometown rendition of the traditional Flavoured Assorted Preserved Meat Claypot Rice ($68, serves 2 – 4 pax). It was a visual treat for us the moment the preserved meat was served separately, before the friendly and knowledgeable service staff mixed it with the claypot rice. It was a good mix of preserved meats which added a varied taste to the fragrant rice, from air-dried Chinese pork and liver sausages to waxed duck and preserved pork belly. I would recommend adding some soy sauce as well for an even more flavoured taste.

A Chinese Restaurant where one can have it All

I have been to many Chinese fine dining establishments and Summer Palace is the best all-rounder among the Chinese Restaurants.    Reason: They provide the best service among all the Chinese Restaurants I had been to: meticulous, friendly with a genuine warmth and prompt response. It definitely helps that they actually remember our preferences whenever we go there (Yeah, we are kind of like regular customers there already). In addition, they do not have this timing thing, commonly seen in Chinese Restaurants where they only allocated 11/2 hours or so for you to finish dining, which is all good with me. 

As for the food: No over-powering sauces or MSG needed (which is exactly what I like) since the natural sweetness and fragrance of the extremely fresh ingredients used, say it all. The dim sum items are one of the best, with moist texture and light aromatic flavours, showcasing the great creativity of the chef. Bird's nest dumpling is a must try. The other dim sum items are all delicately made and are delicate in taste.    The creation of fresh garoupa fish with truffle is absolutely beautiful in taste due to the silky fish meat being drizzled with the strongly flavoured sauce of the woody aroma. The crab meat with rice is another winner—the result of the generous helping of fresh crab meat adorning the top of the pile of fragrant, lightly seasoned rice. The double-boiled soups are bursting with flavours of the abundance of treasures put inside them. Scallops, fishes, shellfish, herbs, fruits, vegetables, this restaurant is very generous in adding these into the soups.

Though I need to add that it will be hard to see the standard of the service and food during Chinese New Year since these are usually adversely affected during such period.
  The ambience: unbeatable also. Since the tables are amply spaced between each other and the view of the bamboo-like greenery outside, extending across one entire side of the place induces a calm and serene mood. Book early for a table by the side of the glass panels (max four persons for a table there).

Good service and good food is a winning formula for me!

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
