Tim Ho Wan is the most famous Michelin starred restaurant with chef Mak Kwai Pui’s. It's the first dim sum restaurant overseas has an outlet that can accommodate 100 sit-down diners. Queues are long, but there is a text waiting system in place, and a takeaway counter for those who just want a char siew bao to go.
I went there on a Thurs Lunch where there was relatively little people with lots of empty seats.
I was immediately placed next like 15cm away from the neighboring customers next to me when there were like other seats available. I asked to be placed in a quieter corner and the waitress told me " its the same, we will pull out the seats if its only 2 person"
I tolerated until I was constantly knocked and nudged in my back by waiters servcing the neighboring customers. My wife was so angry that she threatened to leave the place and only then they finally compelled and change us to another area which was just as tight but less crowded than the 1st seating plan.
For your information. there was also an entire place cordoned off towards the inside of the resturant.
THE ONLY REASON THEY DID THAT WAS THEY WANTED TO GIVE CUSTOMERS THE IMPRESSION THAT BUSINESS IS GOOD BY PACKING EVERYONE NEAR THE ENTRANCE.
Food wise , its way overated. only the char siew polo buns were good. rest were overpriced and substandard.
One word of advice to pple who dun believe my words, if you wanna be seated comfortably, go in groups of 4 or TELL THEM YOU ARE FREAKING IN A GROUP of 3 even if you are just 1 or 2 person.
Tim Ho Wan; the outlet located at Westgate (Jurong East). I have been here for two times and I would say the place is just not as good as it was being mentioned by many. Probably, this place is only good in Hong Kong? Anyway, I am usually there on a weekend, and the queue is always pretty long. The food the serve is normal, and I really there other dim sum stall have better dim sum! As for the price, I find it a little too expensive as well.
