Had a reunion lunch here at the Changi Airport branch. Love the duck as usual. Never fails to disappoint. Always a great meal here.

Come with my friends several times, the herbal duck is good and this time we tried Angelica Duck which is not bad, medium size is enough for three of us, other food is average, the prawn ball is the worst, and the service is not good, I asked the staff to provide a glass of water first because I'm so...

We were initially dismayed when we saw the long queue ahead of us on a weekend. Amazingly, the queue moved quickly and we were seated within 20 minutes. Furthermore, as we had already placed our orders while waiting, all our food items were served immediately when we were seated. We opted for the Diners' Set for 4 pax, and were... More

We had 6 hours to kill at Changi and this surprising restaurant on the second level of the airport was a delightful way to spend some of the time. We enjoyed an excellent meal of shark fin soup, green beans with XO sauce, stir-fried cod and 10 spice roast duck. While the food was delicious I should also mention that... More

Long wait for the meal, but the meal is really excellent that you won't regret for! Herbal duck is very nice, and also the Mongolian spare ribs!

Yet another visit to the airport, yet another visit to this branch of Dian Xiao Er. Not the best branch in my opinion, I prefer the Marina Square branch better for the flavour and portions. My parents seem to like it though and we had that before their trip overseas. Not that bad a place and there are always available... More

Just love the herbal duck here! The meat is lean but succulent and skin is crispy and very tasty! My kids love it too, despite the herbs. The other dishes are pretty nice too like the Mongolian ribs. And some outlets serve stir-fried crocodile meat and even herbal soup, but not the one at Changi T2. My kids would take... More

This restaurant is worth getting to the airport early for! The food was brilliant. Their specialty is duck cooked with herbs. We had roast duck with rice, seafood combo, sweet and sour pork with sautéed French beans and all of it was really something. The sign of a good restaurant was the length of the queue to get in! It's... More

It was surprize to see on Trip Advisor that the restaurant is actually having a lot of branches All over Singapore. My colleague and I from Indonesia had a dinner there because we are on Terminal 3 Changi airport and was really delicious food there.

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.
