Went with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday and a work success. We loved it! We couldn't figure out where to go for brunch but were glad we finally agreed on the Cherry Garden. We went for the 118$ brunch option with unlimited dim sum, an appetizer, a main, a veg and a rice or noodle, plus unlimited Ruinart champagne.

The service was great. We walked in feeling a bit out of place as we aren't very formal but the wait staff was very welcoming. I can be a bit picky so explained shamefully that I only eat certain things. The waitress was lovely about it and shared the message with the other staff who then even pointed out when we by mistake ordered something containing something I don't eat.

We were bowled over by the gyoza which were crispy and soft at the same time (filled with chicken mushroom aubergine and tofu), and also by the crystal dumplings with mushrooms and courgettes, and the drunken chicken dumplings. Stir fried young pak choi also great and I adored the chocolate filled custard dumplings ! Let's not forget the yummy crispy aubergine with chicken floss!

Lovely meal which went wonderfully well with quite a lot of champagne :) we will be back!

We went for the champagne brunch to celebrate a couple of things. Initially the place feels a little formal but the staff are lovely and friendly and soon make you feel at home. Service that is both good and relaxed.

The food is great, particularly the beef and ginger Dim sum, the custard chocolate buns, the soya chicken, the drunken chicken dim sum actually it was all fantastic. Add to that free flow Ruinart champagne and it becomes tricky to imagine a better brunch

We were staying at The Mandarin and so were blessed to have so many fantastic restaurants in out hotel.

We had a lovely meal in Cherry Garden. It was rather over priced but we came to realise that of everywhere in Singapore ( against GBP). The presentation and taste was as to be expected.

The bonus for us was our lovely server, Joy. She made suitable recommendations for both main and desserts and spent time chatting away with us, even when the rest of the restaurant was void of customers and it was clearly home time for the staff.

She made it a memorable visit.

We went to Cherry Garden for dinner this week and wished we hadn't. The lights were blazingly bright and the air conditioning was freezing cold. When I asked the lady who seated us if she could find us a table with dimmer lighting and not so cold it was as if I had insulted her family ! With a pout she marched off to another table with us trailing in her wake.

Our mains came out together but no side dishes. We waited for the sides and by the time they came (thanks to the aircon) the mains were cold. We sent it all back and after another 20 minutes the mains came out with no sides. And on it went. While this went on we enjoyed a nice bottle of red.

Eventually we ate, we finished, we paid the bill (over $300 for 2) and vowed never to return.

This was fantastic, the food, the service and the hotel. It was very expensive especially the wine but worth it for a special occasion.
