Have been here a few times. The food is consistently good and always value for money. Simply love their sharksfin for its broth and the braised abalone. Dun need to order the best, any sharksfin , small abalone is good enough. Other dishes we tried were also delicious, eg, the special fried tofu and the three wine chicken. Portions are generous, be careful not to over order. Usually a set meal for 4 pax, is sufficient for 5 (normal eaters). Its location along the Chinatown Spring Court Restaurant makes it inconspicuous (overshadowed by Spring Court). I have not tried Spring Court before, but judging at their set menus, Tam Kah is better priced and higher value for money.
I eat meat but I don't like to kill animals cruelly. Just shop off their head so death comes instantly. "Singaporean groom Han Songguang took his campaign to stop consumption of one of Asia's top delicacies to a new level when he placed postcards of a dead shark on each guest's seat at his own wedding banquet."
Last time, this restaurant serve good and economic shark fin. The price range from $6 to $20. However, recently when I went there, a lot of good food has been removed from the menu. Think the management has changed. The minimum that you have to spend for one shark fin soup around $15. This price of course still economical compare to Jumbo or Crystal Jade. Previously there was one dish Bean curd, also not part of the menu anymore. Not worth going anymore. Food portion also getting smaller. Service still quite alright.
If you want to pamper yourself with top-graded delicacies, I recommend Tam Kah Shark's Fin. The special dish from this restaurant is the "Peng Cai" or "Poon Choi" - Chinese New Year Dish. We only paid about $60 per person for the set dinner for 8 & enjoyed a sumptuous meal with shark's fin, abalone, scallop, sea cucumber, mushroom, fish maw, big fresh prawns, etc! So far, the best Peng Cai I've tried with real high quality ingredients. Simple setting ambience and not crowded. Excellent service.
