Dim Sum Review at Swatow

Established in August 2010 at the heartland of Toa Payoh, Swatow (汕头) Seafood Restaurant has built a strong base of followers till date. This is evident especially on weekends, therefore early reservation is strongly advised. You may be fortunate enough to have a seat without much of a wait as turnover rate is rather high too. 


What's unique about Swatow (汕头) Seafood Restaurant is their duo offerings of Teochew cuisine and Dim Sum (点心). They do have Dim Sum Hi-Tea Buffet as well. I was here for Dim Sum on a Saturday morning and the restaurant was already overflowing with people at 9am.

Swatow definitely serves up quality Dim Sum (both presentation and taste)

Good and affordable dim sum (we went a-la carte)

We reached at 11.30am on a Saturday afternoon to a busy restaurant. But we were promptly led to our table and were lucky to be given a table located at the side / perimeter as it meant we had easy and direct access to the push carts. For customers sitting in the centre, the staff would go up to

Too pricy for me

Our first dinner here and ordered a few dishes. Essentially the food here is not bad (like the Braised Goose) but the price tag of the dishes is a tad too high for me to return. I can easily find similar tasty food in other restaurants that won't cost me an arm and leg. But having said that, thi

The tasty of the food cannot be far apart, since I found the dinner was delectable.  The cod fish that we had, was fresh with sweetness sauce.
