This is a restaurant I really look forward to going to, however this time it was very disappointing. They charged for the nuts on the table and even for the hand towels. The service was so slow that I had to get up several times and make the waiters come over to our table. The person behind the bill counter... More

We were on our honeymoon when we visited Singapore in Jan 2015 (can't change the year so have put 2016) and this was our first meal that we had picked prior to coming to the city. It was very highly rated among others in Chinatown so we decided to give it a try. We tried a lot of their dimsum... More

Had dinner here with family on a Sunday. The place was not difficult to find, but the fact that it shares the same entrance as a hotel might throw some people off. When we arrived at 6pm the place was not crowded, but quickly fill up later on. Make a reservation if you want to secure a table. The number... More

Was pretty good - not amazing but it hit the mark. Beware that the peanuts placed in front of you while you wait for the dumplings to come around aren't free! The place is clean enough if a bit tricky to find - it really is up the stairs through the unassuming door.

Wonderful, tasty Chinese food. Dim sum was perfect, also had sweet sour pork, beef with green onions and fried rice. A truly authentic Chinese meal. Situated above Jingshen hotel, look out for signs on the wall !

Yum Cha is popular not only with locals but tourists alike. No the easiest place to find but the restaurant specialises in dim sum and chinese cuisine. The waiting staff also push round trolleys with steaming dim sum which is novel. Weekends are especially busy.

The dim sum was really enjoyable and I liked how the dim sum was pushed around in trolleys like in HK. Not many places in Singapore keep to this tradition. If you're on a budget, this place isn't too friendly on your wallet, I spent about $57 for 2 people on about 10 dishes, the food was filling and satisfying!... More

Good dim sum, it can get quite busy so you might have to wait to be seated. There is a large variety of traditional dim sum to try on at affordable prices.

Tried the main outlet in Chinatown for lunch this week. We had 6 different dim sum options and some porridge - all were pretty good and the service was quite efficient. Not too crowded on a Friday lunchtime so no need for a reservation. Worth another visit.

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.
