I went there during lunch hours, it was rather fast because we waited for like couple of mins.

Ordered BBQ Pork Buns, Har gow, Shrimp Chee Chong Fun, Ma Lai Gao, Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf, I think there are somemore.... But couldn't remember.

I would only recommend BBQ Pork Buns, it was really crispy on the outside and the Char Siew is really juicy on the inside. Other than this, the rest weren't that fantastic. Despite of my friend's recommendation for Ma Lai Gao, it was under my expectation; I didn't like the texture and it tasted really porous lol. 

Just once its enough...

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.

Quite disappointed...
1. While joining the line, the staff kept on asking if we all are here. Even though I said one is reading a menu in front of the restaurant, the staff still insisted that everybody has to be in this line in order to be given a table.
2. The menu only offers 25 kinds of food which is not much variety and we had to wait for 20 minutes for the first dish to be served.
3. When we just finished the last dish and we were still chewing the food in our mouths, the staff came and clear our plates! I had to ask to wait at least after we have swallowed our food!
