if you love your chinese food, you'd definitely love this place. the char siew is to die for.
Char siew is a must! I love the salted egg lotus root too!
Delicious roasts, especially the char siew, and pork belly. Prompt service from all staff. Recommend to make reservations as there was a queue during lunch peak period on Saturday.
Speedy service. Restaurant is clean and spacious. Best char siew I have ever tasted.
The restaurant was crowded on a Saturday evening, luckily we managed to get a reservation on Quandoo.sg. It is recommended that reservations be made as walk-in have to wait for more than one hour. The char Siew was good, mixture of lean and fatty meat. However; the roast pork was average, the skin wasn’t crispy or crunchy. Some of the dishes were cold when they came. The fried crispy squid wasn’t crispy and cold as well as the salted egg chicken wings and drumlets. The restaurant was short-handed and their iPad ordering system was down. I would also like to mention that their pot of tea is not those Cantonese restaurant tea with loose tea leaves. It’s just two tea-bags and they charge $6.80 per pot. I think they can do better by providing more tea bags or give better tea at that kind of price. Nonetheless, the dining experience was above average, there’s room for improvement. Perhaps to make sure that your staff are more organized than running around and being panicky.
Their signature dish is the char siew and I think it’s really the best! They should mention the type of noodles they serve though. There’s only meepok and we didn’t know because we assumed it’s meekia. They offered to change it for us after knowing that my mum doesn’t eat meepok but they ended up overcharging us (they charged both the noodles and the rice that they offered). But overall we had a great meal.
Ten of us were at the dinner. We were putting in our order through the iPad. One of the female waiting staff took a look at the IPad and informed us that the portion of the mixed roast is for 2 to 3 people. I told her we were ordering two portions and we had other foods too. She was not happy and service was bad after that. During dinner, we had to call her and reminded two times before she accede to our requests. No iced water was served. Food was overrated. The duck is supposed to be boneless but came with lots of bones.
Reservations recommended as there was a queue even at 8pm! Charsiew was the best out of all the meat though the duck and siobak were great too. Would recommend the rice over noodles as I find that the sauce for the noodles were too oily and made the meal a little gelat. (they use chicken rice!). Atmosphere is perfect for a gathering with friends :)
Made a reservation at 7.30pm but when arriving on the dot we were still made to wait for awhile. Otherwise food is good and worth the price! Ambience is good for casual dining and catchup with friends
Food was good but a little oily. Should have asked for the less fatty meats. The mee pok and the crispy lotus roots were nice! The kai lan would have been better with less oil.
