Description: Dian Xiao Er symbolizes a pit-stop for travelers (customers) to rest and replenish their energy fully before setting off to continue their hectic journeys again. Dian Xiao Er not only provides to the travelers a place of warmth, satisfaction and happiness as they indulge in the delectable dishes, it is also a place for them to interact and build relationships with one another. Dian Xiao Er also symbolizes an element of blessing and fellowship as everyone is brought together in Dian Xiao Er. The ambience at Dian Xiao Er is intentionally planned to be rustic and raw with the careful selection of materials to complement the freshness of the herbal roast ducks which are prepared and roasted in the display kitchen daily. Customers can expect to experience a choice of dining ambience varying from dining inside a traditional Chinese inn to dining inside a rustic timber shed at the foot of a stone cliff.

“Yummy-licious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

the food here is yummy! GO for the duck specialty with herbal sauce. Duck skin is lovely and crispy and meat is tender and the herbal sauces are fragrant but not over powering. The fatty pork dish (can't remember the name) is yummy too though I do not recommend eating it too often for health reasons! :) Veggie dishes are great...go for the one with macadamia nuts and lotus root.

“Fast service reasonable food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

The setting is interesting, like a traditional chinese inn. But after a while, I wish for chairs with high back. Food is reasonably good but nothing to scream about when you have all the great choices in Singapore.
