Excellent for expats

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

Goggling over internet, knew that swee choon restaurant is one of the famous dim sum restaurant.
So i bring my husband there to try out. We reached there 1 hour before the operating of the restaurant so we thought of going somewhere first before we came back to the restaurant.

We came back 15mins bef the restaurant opened. To our shock,  there was a very long queue. I
 checked with Swee Choon staffs whether need to queue before going in. Staff told us no need to queue, can just walked in.

Therefore we walked, ordered some dim sums, ready to eat once arrived.
Please refer to the photos that i attached on my orders.
