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 was in Plaza Singapura around 6, and I saw the line at Tim Ho Wan was short, so I joined in. I didn't have to wait long before getting a table (about 10 mins--I was actually passed up by a number of diners since my companion hadn't arrived yet). We ordered the BBQ pork buns, carrot cake, Teochew dumplings, char siew chee chong fun and siew mai.
The food was quite good, and came relatively quickly. I especially liked the Teochew dumplings, which were pork with water chestnut--something I've never seen before.
I would recommend trying the BBQ pork buns--the inside is nice, but be warned the outside is strangely sweet. But overall, I'm glad I tried it once.
I wouldn't recommend the carrot cake. It didn't seem special to me, and it had too much dried shrimp inside--of which I am not a fan.
The tables are definitely a bit small and close to other diners. Be prepared to eat fast or stack your baskets on top of eachother.
Overall, I'm glad I've tried the famous Tim Ho Wan, and I was not disappointed by my visit, but I do not see any need to go again, unless to eat those Teochew dumplings.
poor service. Lousy waitress. Food was just ok, nothing too good or deserved us to come back again for second time. No one greets u when u arrive. extremely disappointing. Many other options around for dim sum. Don't waste ur penny on this.
Heard of alot of good comments of Tim Ho Wan from alot of people posting on facebook so thought of trying for the very first time.
Queued for awhile before able to go in.
My husband said ok since i wanna try out. The portions indeed are very small, cant really fill one's stomach and the prices are not cheap though.
Find the food wise are somehow over-rated. The services are rather fast but not so friendly.
We ordered few dishes . Definitely will not come back for more.
