Yum Cha Garden Restaurant @ Serangoon Garden Country Club

The first impression on Yum Cha Restaurant is a typical Hong Kong Style restaurant serving Hong Kong dim sum. Over the years, Yum Cha Restaurant has evolved and developed into a full fledged Chinese restaurant serving many unique dishes. The food review invitation was part of the efforts to create the awareness on their series of revamped menu.   Our verdict, Yum Cha has several good new dishes that worth to try; we highly recommend the Promfet Tapino, Dim Sum, Fried rice and Desserts. Yum Cha is certainly a good place for dining with family and friends with its good food and reasonable price.   Please refer to www.ieatandeat.com for details review.

Brought my family here for dimsum lunch on Sunday. We also ordered chilli crabs and yusheng.
 Their dim sum was okay, nothing to rave or complain about. Maybe because of the crowd, service was slow and few mistakes were made with the orders. They served us salty egg crab instead of chilli crab. Sent us other table's dim sum dish. Just when we thought it couldn't get worse, they served us a small and blend tasting yu sheng ($38) which was the worst I ever had!

Delectable Chinese food and dimsum

It is a spacious retaurant with Oriental chic decor and the usual polished woodworks. The service was rather hospitable, probably servers used to the regulars residing around the lovely vicinity. 

And of course best of all, it was not a dimsum buffet and there were not much fried items on the menu. From dimsum to simple Chinese dishes, Yum Cha has increased its repertoire of selection to seafood as well, hence there was a huge selection of items to choose from.

First we had one of the Specialties items, Soft Shell Crab with Mango Puree. Soft with no hints of crispiness, and made softer by the rich mango puree, I still enjoyed the soft shell shell crab served with fragrant and sweet chunks of mango and puree. It was a rather delightful combination.

Then there were the steamed Prawn Dumplings (SGD$4.80 aka Har Gow) - thin, melt-in-the-mouth skins embracing fresh springy shrimps bursting from their wombs.

The next dimsum dish was Shark's Fin with Meat Dumplings (SGD$3.80) - tasty with tender minced meat but the hints of shark's fins were minimal.

Now, Beancurd Roll with Superior Sauce (SGD$3.80) - I enjoyed this. The outside is crunchy and the inside is juicy with sumptuous stuffings - shrimps and meat.


Last but not least, we had the Fried Carrot Cake with Scallops. I enjoyed this as well - there was a very slight tinge of crispiness around the edges of the carrot cake cubes, and the interior was a lovely beancurd texture with strong flavor. The additional strips of scallops enhanced the carror cake tasty tremendously.

A la carte dinner was fine but nothing extraordinary

Visited Yum Cha Restaurant on a Saturday night for a la carte dinner. It was a quiet night and it's quite unexpected given that Saturdays are the lifeline of most eateries.

Below are the dishes we ordered:

- Sweet sour pork : Pork bits were tough
- Cereal prawn : Very generous amount of cereal, though the prawns are not extraordinary
- Roasted chicken : Likewise, nothing stand out.

I had visited the other Yum Cha outlet for dim sum and it was fine. The a la carte dinner at SGCC was disappointment and my I gathered they are better off with dim sum dishes than chinese a la carte dishes.

Full Yum Cha Restaurant review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/05/zi-char-yum-cha-restaurant.html


Yum Cha Restaurant is a Chinese fine dining Dim Sum / Zi Char franchise chain, known for their use of high quality ingredients, masterfully prepared and beautifully presented dishes, and justifiably high prices. Yum Cha Restaurant also provides a catering delivery service, that is best utilized by large groups.

Ambience at Yum Cha Restaurant is typical of a premium fine dining restaurant, which touches of Imperial elegance and splendor. Chinese decor and plants adorn the room, as do images of Koi fish in the Yin Yang formation. Fine cutlery and tableware is used, and the large floor space has spacious room for many guests.

Service befits a fine dining establishment as well. Yum Cha Restaurant staff are observant and attentive, topping up drinks without request and making sure your dining experience goes well. They are polite and efficient, with food being prepared and served relatively quickly. They also accede to certain change requests. Very good.

Food at Yum Cha Restaurant revolves around either Dim Sum or Zi Char. Their Zi Char dishes look and taste great, but portions are quite small, and prices are high per dish, even for simple ones with low cost ingredients. Their set menus are slightly more value for money, but the price listed is nowhere near the ballpark amount you'll pay.

The Dim Sum at Yum Cha Restaurant is the star though, and the best time to dine at Yum Cha Restaurant is when their buffets are available.

The complementary Braised Peanuts were undercooked, and slightly hard. Would be better off if it were braised longer till soft. Also, the sauce is underwhelming.

The taste of the Fish Maw In Thick Seafood Soup was excellent. Thick and savoury with a pleasing yellow colour and a seafood / crustacean taste, the portion of ingredients within is decent.

The Stir Fried Scallop Suillus With Asparagus was slightly oily at the base, but the spice combined well with the fresh, crunchy, and large asparagus. The scallops were medium sized, plump, and perfectly cooked. Portion was just nice for 4 people.

I thought the Beancurd With Shimeji Mushrooms And Vegetables was the weakest dish here. Neither very tasty or spectacular. And the sauce tasted and looked similar to the prior soup course. The ingredients were fresh though.

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
