Feel-Good dining experience

You get a very comfortable dining experience with the no-frills dim sum spread against a very cozy ambiance, notably the marble tables and classic wooden seats i.e. typical Singaporean. I like their har gows and siew mais. Their porridge is also worth mentioning cooked to the right texture. As for dessert, make sure you try their banana pancake.

Terrible service

We've been here quite a few times over the past few years. While the yum cha is ok, the service has never been great. However the service on our recent visit was just terrible. A couple of the staff were very rude. This is not an isolated instance, as many of the reviews for this restaurant have commented on the poor service and rude attitude of some of the staff. We'll never be back.

A Leisurely Afternoon Yum Cha on a sleepy Monday afternoon

We went on a Monday afternoon at 3pm and the waitress warned us there was no aircon, only standing fans. We didn't mind at all. The fried dim sum came very fast. They had fried wontons, fried sesame balls and also baked pork filling pastry come when we sat down. Most of the items on the carts came fast, except the special order items like century egg and lean pork congee, chilled mango pudding, and the custard buns which we had to order specially from the staff, and they had to bring them in from the kitchen. The steamed items also came fast on carts, we had Xiao Longbao, scallop balls in cabbage, mushroom dumplings. All in all fast service and a lot of food provided within a short time. Food not too salty or too heavy with MSG as it is normal with most Chinese Dim Sum restaurants. We really cannot complain since it is only $21.80++ for adults. The toilets were a bit under maintained as some of the stalls had clogged filled with toilet paper.
