Ordered it's signature herbal roast duck, and definitely it was a good choice! Very succulent and tasty. The rest of the dishes were also tasty. Good place to have authentic Chinese cuisine.

Once you have worked up an appetite shopping in Vivocity I suggest you find your way to Dian Xiao Er. Their roast duck is excellent! It was definitely a crowd pleaser! We also had braised mushroom in Chinese wine, a lotus flower dish with their yummy fried rice. Definitely hit the spot!!

Great quick lunch at Dian Xiao Er. We had the house special herbal duck and the prawn and calamari sambal. Both were delicious. This is a tasty spot for lunch in Vivo City.
