Overated, but because it caters for late nights...

-taste i would say its pretty 'hawker standard' for majority of their dishes
-XLB and golden tofu too overated
-everyone's fav custard bun: Custard is perfect, bun is a 'no-no' 
-service is fast only cos they open at 6pm onwards and everything is prepared beforehand. so u can expect dimsums made in the morning and eating in cold at night (pretty much everytime i go there) 
-pricing wise abit steep
-only reason for me to visit this store is that the open late in the night 

Overall: for late nighters only

When the food came too fast, I was surprised. The double boiled soup was not hot, the pork ribs were too dry. The frozen Siew Mai smelt. Sigh!

It's great to know there's always a dim sum place welcoming you till late night. Enjoyed the custard bun, chee choong fun, chicken wings, mee sua kueh and many more!!! The century egg porridge ain't good and not worth it to try. On a cooling night, it's good to seat outdoors. But try not to sit near the end as that's where the rubbish truck will park to collect the smelly rubbish!

One of my favorite dim sum joints in singapore, serving a variety of choices ranging from dim sum to la mian and other eats. The price is reasonable, the food quality is very good, and the service is quite responsive especially with the table button thing. Must try!

Located at the heart of Jalan Besar, Swee Choon Dim Sum Restaurant is no stranger to many and has been operating for almost 50 years. Seats are available indoors with air-conditioning and alfresco in the back alley for a nostalgic experience during your dim sum fare. 

Good news for the nocturnal, dim sum is available for dinner and supper till the next morning!
