nice food and great dining experience as the staff are very efficient. My husband's teacup was leaking and we highlighted to them and they got it changed immediately.

Excellent service, excellent dim sum. The complimentary soups were such a pleasant surprise, shows the restaurant's hospitality and appreciation to their guests. It was a welcome start while i set about ordering the rest of the meal. I hope they continue with the complimentary soups because a little goes a long way and this gesture will be remembered and will result in repeated visits from guests. I for one am definitely going to return. I came with my father and niece, and my next visit i will be bringing more people....a party of 8 guests! The food is high quality and the selection is so diverse, i wish i could have ordered more. My next visit i will try the Peking duck special done in 3 ways. Again, another creative take on a traditonal dish at such a reasonable price. Dragon Bowl will definitely succeed!

The atmosphere was a little boring and China for me. The lobster pumpkin soup was totally different from the menu representation. 2 petite sized lobster pieces, rather pathetic and did not taste exceptional. The stir fry Ee Mian was oily and lacked taste and ingredients. The roast chicken lacked taste and when we asked for the roasted salt, the waitress gave us a plate of table salt instead. Overall, the restaurant pails in comparison when placed side by side with Kai Garden just next door. Service was also average, it was not always a breeze to communicate with the service stuff.

Great food, great service. It's hard to find quality dim sum / Chinese food these days. Dragon Bowl certainly brings the benchmark of what premium dim sum is supposed to taste like, back to where it's supposed to be. The peking duck should be a must-try for every visitor - it was cooked to perfection. Both the chefs and kitchen staff sure know their things.

Food is tasty and of good quality. The staff are courteous, friendly and do their best to accommodate to our requests. When we made the reservation, they asked if we are celebrating any special event. When they knew we are celebrating the birthday of an elder in our family, they prepared complimentary longevity buns for us. They also gave complimentary parking tickets to patrons.

Excellent Cantonese cuisine in a very service-oriented environment. I was there with my 86 year old mother and they treated her really well! Thanks. The food is also well put together and I love that the server was honest in apprasing what we needed so we did not order too much food.

I don't like iPad ordering to be honest - so troublesome and we are the ones ultimately paying for the unnecessary hi-tech in the restaurant, right? Dim sum is reasonably good. Wide range of varieties of Cantonese, Shanghai and other regions' specialties. Tasty and authentic enough. Price is not bad either for that environment so I'm happy with the general offering.

While price was a little on the expensive side & portions a tad small, the quality made up for it with their strength in sauces. 3 dishes should be sufficient for 2 (including a carbohydrate item). Expect to pay about $70 for 2 (should there be a seafood dish). Service was polite and attentive with live gu zheng music.

This is the first time my friends and I ate at Dragon Bowl as one of my friend read good reviews about this restaurant. As we are eating, beside the food, my mouths are also filled with praises about the sumptuous meal. Every dish is marvellous. With such quality food, we will definitely patronise Dragon Bowl again!

brightly decorated restaurant. Bought my German friend for dinner when she came to Singapore. She was cold seated under the aircon. We weren't able to change seats, but the waiter was so kind to offer scarf or jacket for her. Great and fast service. Delicious food.

While the staff and managers are polite, I notice that the staff are not as observant as they should be considering that the restaurant was only 1/4 full on a Friday night. This is a soft skill that cannot be trained but can be reminded. Overall we do like the place and will definitely return.

Service staff generally friendly but quality of service could be improved if the staff could check with us for last order before the kitchen closes at 4.30pm. We were told that the kitchen closes at 4.45pm when we arrived, maybe due to mis-comm. Food was good but didn't manage to order more variety thou.

The flavour of the various dishes was subtle but tasty, without being overly salty. Dishes were served quite promptly. The servers were appropriately attentive and polite. I was happy with the service and my experience overall. Personally, I thought the rice could be a little softer, but that is a matter of personal preference.

I had Wagu beef with garlic and green/red pepper. The meat was not as soft as tender as I thought. But still nice. Very friendly waiters. The head waiter even helped me to calculate how much food I ordered.

Excellent experience at Dragon Bowl. Prompt and attentive service by very friendly staff and the food is pretty up there amongst the top Cantonese restaurants we have tried. Crispy duck is a must try. Nice atmosphere too!

there was only 3 tables including us. One of the staff was very rude and her service was very bad. I guess she is a assistant manager or manager as she was wearing blazer....we have to request additional chilli padi 3 times and was still not send to us... We signal to her and she ignore us even when she passby close to our table....our food was almost half finish and my mum cannot tahan ask another staff and she bring immediately.... only a couple of dishes is ok. The egg yolk bun is the generic ones that crystal jade is using (distinctive orange colour) nothing fantastic...

Very attentive staff and patience to explain the various types of dishes since this is our first visit. Ordered the Peking Duck promotion. Duck meat fried rice was not oily per other restaurants. Black pepper tenderlion beef was great. Great experience.

The fish that they served is very fresh. Service is ok. I thought it will be better if they can be easy on the aircon, as it is quite cold in there. They need to improve on the ipad food ordering system, as it is not that easy to use.

Food was great and portions generous. Staff was a tad busy during the time we were there and it took several rounds of asking before our requests of additional chilli etc were delivered. Food service was prompt.
