This is a great place for dim sum, but not if you’re a novice. It’s too crowded to bring around carts so you can see what you’re getting. So you order everything off a paper menu by noting how many of a particular dish you want. So if you don’t mind the noise and can go with someone who knows... More

We had a good quantity of dim sum and we spent considerable amount of time in the restaurant. I must say, the service was simply impeccable. They took care to attend to every single detail; including ensuring that we ate the item while it was hot; and ensuring that our tea cups were always filled. I was impressed and touched.

Went back here for lunch after first couple of meals here on a previous trip... While ok, it was a disappointment this time, with a vastly reduced Yum Cha menu, most of the common favourites are gone, not to be found... Sad! The place has become a little tired. If you are after great or even good food, don't go... More

If you are a dim sum amateur, here is a restaurant for you in the heart of Chinatown not far from the interesting Chinatown heritage center. Essentially patronized by locals, there are few foreigners which is a good indication. I loved the scallops and green peas dim sum as well as the traditional siu mai. When you arrive at your...

We went there near to chinese new year and we almost did not found the entrance who is surrounded by shops . Plenty of yummy Dimsum of all sorts . This is not a fancy restaurant , its quite noisy , but its clean , the service is good , and you will pay about 15dollars , not more .

We went here twice and enjoyed dim sum. The restaurant is usually quite crowded but I don't believe you need reservations. Lots of choices and the prices are reasonable. It is located in Chinatown. It is a little hard to find but follow the "tea cup" symbols which are their logo. It is on the second floor of a building.

Shaky staircase leads into a bustling restaurant in the heart of Chinatown. Carts in the room, laden with baskets pork ribs with sweet potatoes, yams and samami dim sum with shrimp and spinach make an impression even on those who are Asia - a sweet home.

We are a fan of dimsum having had these since we were young. The typical Chinese dishes you'll see in the Philippines. We also have done a lot of dimsum exploration in HK. Being in the CNY season, we wanted to have dimsum and a walk around Chinatown. Yum Cha is very popular. The ambiance is close to HK dimsum... More

I have been brought to this restaurant in Chinatown twice by 2 different tour guides so I assume that it must have been popular and good at one time. However on both occasions the food was a letdown and the ambience very average. So I don't understand why the tour guides keep bringing us here.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
