    My favorite place to have dim sum. Huge, lively, Spartan interior, blistering service and delectable food. Cheap too so you can pig out w/o breaking the bank. Always a queue but it's worth the wait.

    The service here is impeccable, efficient & fast. Everything on the menu sounds amazing...what we ordered were all delish. The liu sar pau is a must. The best part is the super affordable prices!

    This place is great, and cheap! 10 dim sum dishes for only $28. Especially enjoyed the chee cheong fun and the fried golden tofu. Will definitely return to try the other dishes we missed.

    Mee sua kway is an original item and great. Fast efficient service. Open late into the night. Good for dim sum if you're fixing for some late at night in this area.

    Usually the first place i will think of when i have cravings for dim sum. Affordable & good, plus they open till very late. Just thinking about their liu sha bao makes me hungry, damn !

    Amazing selection of northern Chinese and Cantonese food. Open 24/7 always packed. The back ally is a really nice experience in a city like Singapore

    Great for a late, late, late night stop. Don't expect any preferential treatment if you're not a local; just look around (and look it up) if you're not sure what to order - you won't be disappointed.

    Good dimsum, love the prawn beancurd. Don't order the egg puff with red bean and banana tho as not great. The red bean and banana tastes good but there is only a teaspoon of it inside each puff...

    the salted egg custard bun is surprisingly good although a bit powdery for my liking. sambal kangkung and fried egg rice with shrimp are worth to try. best XLB is still Din Tai Fung for me.

    Dim sum, sauteed greens, chrysanthemum tea, honest, hard-core Shanghai and Hong Kong cuisine with speedy service and even backstage outside tables. Loved it, not for princesses though :))

    Make sure u take a queue number first before ordering, the automated system will buzz ur mobile when the seats are available . Finally tried that egg yolk custard bun... Yummy!
  • Alwyn S.
    Alwyn SimAugust 13, 2014
    The custard bun here is good, just the right amount of sweetness and saltiness from the salted egg yolk. Fried carrot cake is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. 👍

    One of Singapore's best dim sum restaurants. Good service. A great place for relaxed dates, eating with friends or post-clubbing bao and siew mai. Open till very, very late.

    good, simple late night dim sum with large menu range. xiao long bao was surprisingly good. also really liked the shrimp egg fried rice - ask for extra sambal!
  • Lina Y.
    Lina YippyJuly 16, 2015
    Not all dim sum items are delicious. Dishes not recommended: woh tip, mee suah kueh, and porridge. Average: siew mai, Loh Mai kai. Recommended: salted yolk buns and pork ribs.

    Their 红油炒手 and 小笼包 is definitely on the top of my list! Service is pretty fast and good, but avoid the peak hour crowd if you don't want to be sweltering in the horrendous queue!

    Custard bao and xiao long bao are really delicious =p~ however I dun like the chee chong feng, it's not like the ones I love to eat at Dim Sum restaurants.

    Taste above average; but I feel like the taste has somehow dwindled over the years. I've been eating here since I was in primary school (around 20 years now), and the food back then taste much better.

    Dim sum here is yummy and fresh! My favs: egg tarts, chicken sticky rice, XLB and ha gau. The roll with pork fluff was not that good though.

    Custard bun was disappointing. Must have the mee-suah kueh and egg tarts! End your meal with egg white puffs (let them know you want it served later).
