We ordered Scallop Congee, shark fin soup, char siew bun, prawn dumpling, deep fried prawn in the tofu skin and two desserts. The congee was not good, shark fin..so so. We waited for about 35mins before we are being served. Prices are a bit overpriced and the quality of food has gone down. Maybe we will try out another branch.

We're having a brunch at this Crystal Jade in Holland Village after our brisk walk morning exercises.
This Crystal Jade is open from morning to serve breakfast dishes, such as hong kong styles congee and dim sum.
We really like their shrimp fried rice, wantan shrimp soup noodle and a few other dim sum dishes.
Ambience is pretty basic / average, with outdoor seatings. Prices are quite high though, I think little bit overpriced.

We (3 adults & 1 child) used to frequent this place in the past, but on our last visit, found that the quality of the food has gone down, presumably due to it being packed out at dinner time. Victim of its own success perhaps?

Food:The dim sum quality is fine, but the fried rice is now of below average quality (fewer pricey ingredients such as prawns, just full of eggs, over-salted). The fried noodles with mushrooms were also of below average quality, with few mushrooms and nothing else other than soy sauce.

Service: Too few waiting staff for the number of tables. One dish got lost in the order, and was served very late after our reminder.

Would we go back again? Not in a hurry. Not at busy times.

Well regarded restaurant with excellent Cantonese and Teochew food. Roast meats, teochew braised duck, pomfret fish porridge and yam desserts are exceptional.

Crystal Jade has had a reputation for good dim sum dishes.The food is still quite good though below the standards it used to set.
The BBQ pork roll and SiewMai we had were both quite tasteless,for instance.
The service is terrible-the waitresses ignored us for as long as possible then were unhelpful when we made some simple questions about the dishes.
The table was dirty and still not properly cleaned after they came to clean it.
Annoying in particular were the extra charges.For instance we asked for two glasses of iced water (hardly San Pellegrino!) and we were charged for them.The rather tired pickles already on the table when we sat down were charged for,as were the paper towels.
