Celebrated friend’s birthday here as well as an early Christmas gathering on Sunday 24 Dec. Enjoyed the food, company and champagne. We’re small eaters so didn’t really take full advantage of the unlimited servings of dimsum but the quality of food was there. We love the king prawn dumpling in supreme broth - the broth was thick and flavorful as well as the roast pork, pork ribs and angus beef cubes. And yes, the Perrier Jouët completed the meal perfectly.

This is my second time here. I was impressed after my first visit and decided to bring my Mum for her birthday. Food was great and service too even on Christmas Eve.

My husband and I want a quite night with good food. And enjoyed just that. We started with the Teapot Soup: a delicious broth and dumpling. We then shared the Peking Duck which comes two ways. First, the skin is cut off in thin layers and served with pancakes and accompanying sides. Nest you get to chose how the rest of the duck is served. We choose rice, it was good but a bit disappointing. The restaurant setting was lovely and so was the service.

Food is delectable, portion size just nice, teapot soup a must try, beautifully done char sui as well and many other delicious dishes. Service is one of only places in Singapore where you are properly pampered and do not have to ask for anything. What a joy. Pricing is reasonable enough too.

Empress Place used to be the heart of the old city in Singapore hundred of years ago, what was preserved today is an amazing touch of the old world elegance and new world buzz, take a walk down memory lane along the river and you can see how far Singapore have progress in the last 50 years
