i think it's the best dim sum place in town for now. hehe
price wise is still okay..
spend about 66 SGD for 9 orders.

Here's a list (with pictures, no less) of the top 5 items you absolutely have to try at Taste Paradise (and some advice on which ones you shouldn't waste the calories on).
From light, fluffy textures, to silken textures and the occasional crunch – it’s amazing what magnitude of flavours can be delivered in a small bamboo basket. Dim sum is pretty standard in most places, but there is har gow and then there is Har Gow. Char siu bao and Char Siu Bao.
All in all, I'm glad to say that Taste Paradise earned a place among the big boys.
I made my 1st visit yesterday with Grace Lee, the editor of NUYOU and do you know you can actually ask for the Grace's menu?
Grace's menu if I can remember consists of :
Some lightly stirred fried vegetables (cant rem what type)
XO carrot cake - a must try
Custard Bun - see below
I think there were others, please enquire.
An absolute must try - custard bun : do order right from the start and ask them to serve later cos i understand that this item is usually sold out fast. The custard bun is very different from others I have tried. On the exterior, it just looks like an inconspicious mini bun bun. When you bite into it, egg yolk mixed with custard just oozes out. The combi of custard & egg yolk gives you a pleasant sweet & salty tase. GREAT! TIP: use a spoon to eat this one.
The service is very good (though i reckon it could be because I was with Grace, heheh and yes, the wait staff do know her).
Oh yea, the ladies ushers' uniforms are very elegant with high collars & sweeping black chiffon skirts (which I had to be careful not to step on as I was walking behind them)
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.
all their food was excellent!
a little pricey but totally worth it. service was impeccable! Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly!
would definitely return to try more of their dishes.
