Michelin starred chef Mak Kwai Pui’s dim sum restaurant’s first overseas outlet (outside of Hong Kong) can accommodate 100 sit-down diners. Queues are long, but there is an SMS waiting system in place, and a takeaway counter for those who just want a char siew bao to go.

Tasty dim sums made with fresh and succulent ingredients

The service was fast and there wasn't as long a queue as there was when THW first opened so we got into the restaurant in less than half an hour during weekend lunch time. One thing about Tim Ho Wan that is commendable is that their ingredients were really fresh and tasty, and the dim sums they serve were made upon each order instead of being pre-steamed then reheated, even though that would have helped them managed the crowd better.

I'm rating them down because of my experience, and I do feel that they are not worth all the rave. Read more about my experience here:

Where else to find the most mouth-watering tim sums in Singapore? This place serves the traditional tim sums that have been an all-time favourite. Two of their heavanly kings, the char siew bun, carrot cake is different from any others, and is especially tender and fragrant. A must-go place for tim sums!

The dim sum here is on another level, I havent got a chance to try their main store at hong kong due to the packed queue but at least I tried their singapore franchise! The bolo char siew is very special and yummy but needs to be shared, who doesnt share dim sum anyway? Must tries are their siew mai and carrot cake!

Good Place for Cantonese Dim Sum

We were there on a Friday night with a group of 6, so we ordered almost every item on their menu.  All the dishes were good, and out of their 4 'heavenly king' signature dishes, my favourites are the Ma Lai Gao (Steamed Egg Cake) and the baked bun with BBQ pork (Char Siew Pao).

The BBQ pork bun had a very crispy outer crust and fragrance was just a bit too tempting.  When you bite it, you can hear your own teeth crushing the crust.  

The egg cake was porous, like a sponge that you can press it and it will bounce back.  

This is the best place for authentic Cantonese dim sum in Singapore.
