I was glad we got there right at 6pm, as by the time we left at 7 there was a long line. The line is to be expected as the food here is great and the prices are very reasonable. The location is convenient as well. I would love to come here for a Sunday brunch but they are only open from 6pm to 6am. The
i have eaten a lot of dim sum in HK and Shanghai but this is one of the best I have eaten for sure! And it should be No 1 in Singapore by miles and miles. Excellent service, the staff is warm and attentive and were very patient with my two young kids on a busy Saturday evening. A lot of 5 star hotels in Singapore are facing an acute shortage of well trained staff and I was amazed to see this simple eatery following the basic principles of customer service to the core.
We tried a lot of dishes and each one was better than the other, my singaporean wife was as pleased as I was. the kids loved the egg fried rice and the mango dessert.
The icing on the cake was when the final bill came, the amount for the entire family was less than the cost of 4 pints of beer in CBD!
This is a really popular supper hangout for me and my friends due to the fact that it serves very good Tim sum and a pretty cheap price. As with all good Tim sum dining places, the standard items like the har Kao and siew mai are all there. I would prefer to go on weekdays as weekends can get pretty crowded. If you are planning to be an early bird and be there when the place opens for operations, do take note that the place opens officially at 630 ( or maybe 6pm if I remember wrongly) so do adjust your timing and schedule accordingly. This place is good for gatherings for both your friends and families and a guarantee that you will have a satisfying meal
