Taste Paradise, having won numerous awards and accolades for it cuisine, now offers ION Orchard the best in Cantonese cuisine and dim sum. Set in an oriental chic interior, diners can look forward to a unique dining experience.
I've been visiting this place since they had first opened at Mosque Street and thankfully, the standards had maintained even though they shifted.
The sharkfins soup is a must-try, along with the foie gras(even though I'm not a fan of foie gras), crab vermicelli and wasabi prawns.
The staff are very attentive and will even greet you by your name if you make a reservation.
I visited taste paradise recently, and I was very impressed! I can see why it has the accolade of being one of the top Chinese restaurants in Singapore. I am definitely a fan. We also booked a Chinese New Year dinner here in a few weeks for our family, and after my recent visit here I am really looking forward to it!

One of my new favourite places to eat now!
I last came to this restaurant quite some time ago, and I had a business lunch here recently.
The restaurant has new additions to their menu.
Here are the items that we had:
- XO Carrot Cake: $9.80. Pan fried carrot cake, bean sprouts with XO sauce. It’s a little spicy, so definitely not for those who can’t take chilli. A good dim sum to order.
- Szechuan Pan-seared Foie-Gras: $18 per portion. The foie gras is pan-seared and drizzled with a homemade Szechuan sauce. This gave the dish a mildly spicy kick. Unique Asian perspective.
- Shark Cartilage Soup with Assorted Seafood in Young Coconut: $24. This soup has been slow-cooked for 6 hours and was rich. It had a variety of seafood – prawn, fish and scallop in it, which were fresh. This was a highlight for the meal.
- Soon Hock Fish: This was filleted, deep fried and topped with thin-sliced pork cooked in house-style sauce that is flavoured with dry orange peel.
- Pan-seared Kurobuta Pork with ‘Dang Gui’ sauce: $22 per portion. The dish tastes good. The Dang Gui herb gave a nice flavour to the pork and the herbal flavour is not overwhelming. Recommended!
- Green Dragon Vegetables: ‘Qing Long Cai’. Its stir-fried with garlic and garnished with deep fried scallops. It was crunchy and reminds me a lot of ‘tow-gay’/ bean sprouts. A unique vegetable to order and it has a refreshing taste.
- Poached Rice with Assorted Seafood in Lobster Broth: $32. This is like a lobster bisque without the cream. It had rice in it, so its like eating Teochew porridge. There were diced prawns and scallops in it, making it a dish to remember for a long time.
- Trio of Desserts:
-- Pumpkin Pastry. This was coated with sesame and deep fried. Its nice.
-- Black glutinous rice with Coconut ice cream: Served in a glass bowl and you eat with a small spoon. Every mouthful a delight!
-- Chilled Mango Sago: Cold and refreshing dessert to cleanse the palate and end the meal.
I like that the desserts are small, allowing me to savour a wider range of desserts, with each having different textures and flavours, allowing for variety.
The food quality is good and dishes are unique.
A great meal and I recommend this restaurant for those looking for a good Cantonese cuisine.
