Good overall but not the hype it was worthy of

Been wanting to get a seat here sometime ago. But it is always full. Booked yesterday and was told seat for 3 available but gotta leave by 12.30pm. That upped my expectations...
Arrived early n waited outside the restaurant with almost 20 people. No q no directions from the front desk personnel. 
But we were promptly seated at 11am. We were given seats at the adjoining room not the main hall. So if you are claustrophobic ask for the main seating area. 
Service was quick and efficient. 
Food was served quick too. The appetiser of carrots, apples though roughly cut was really nice n crunchy. Helps to lighten your palate after all the oily dim sum.
What impressed me was the Har Kou,  the shrimp n rice flour skin was fused as one..not like others..where the skin is always breaking up from the shrimp. Usually I peel the skin away u see. But this one just landed in my mouth whole. Yum!
Siew Mai was just average. Instead of being presented upright, 1 was lying on its side...The Char Siew Bun looks average but was heavenly as you bite into it. Not as filling as Tim Ho Wan's but just as good. Fried carrot cake was forgettable. Had better at Pinsi. Like the Char Siew Cheng fun. Light n not too salty! 
My daughter had mango pudding. It was presented with the mango pudding sitting in Mango Pamela sago soup. Taste was good though. But it had loads of sago in it...
Will come back but probably not worth all the hype...

Best Siew Mai

I like their siew mai, which offers a very pleasant dining sensation.  It is made of fresh and good ingriedients.  It is a must try.

Their supposed signature dish of roast pork is over-hyped, and over priced.

Delicate Cantonese Dim Sum

Yup price steep but still worth it as the food is delicate and light...food texture and taste are well balanced,no overpowering sauce which some dim sums may tend to have,

The food may look simple but the ingredients and the way they cook are very precise...love the yam puffs...filled with correct amt of charsiew and yam...

the custard egg bun may look simple but be careful when u eat it...the texture of the bun is good!very springy and yet fragile...1 hard squeeze and the boiling egg custard will scorch ur hand...can say it has the hottest egg custard in singapore...

The pork ribs and chicken feet are also nice...porridge is also a hit...

However some dishes such as the chee cheong fun and roasted pork tend to be average but overall u will be pleased with the dining experience and will want to go back for more
