Open from 7am, this dimsum kiosk is a very good alternative while u stay on chinatown where most of the hotel doesnt have breakfast included on your room rate. Dimsum-s are mouthwatering with relatively reasonable price

Unfortunately tripadvisor has no category between 'average' and 'very good'...so I had to go average. The restaurant has a good menu and deploys typical dim sum service...you tick off your choices and don't wait to feel the love...food came almost together but it was clear some had been sitting on the counter for a while...this affect the texture of the...

A colleague from work took my family to dinner at this place, which she said served traditional Chinese food. Apparently this place has been in the local scene for decades, and is famous for its Hong Kong dimsum and Cantonese cuisine. The place itself is not impressive, typical bare minimum dining tables and chairs, no aircon. But the food is... More

When you go the Chinatown in the summer and looking for a restaurant to chill and eat great and cheap Dim Sim, this is the place. Great location although easy to miss. You will have authentic Dim Sum, served quickly. The ambiance is food court so do not expect the fancy dim sum place but the Prices are also Low... More

Had lunch here today looks like all the locals eat here. Good food nothing fancy very crowded and hard to have a conversation. We had 5 assorted dishes and drinks $23.10SGD. Only chopsticks a bit of a challenge. Then what are fingers for.

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.
