Generous portions, great prices! Would go again!! Try the char siew!
Food was delicious as usual. Best char siew in Singapore. Value for money as well compared to Chinese restaurants.
Good service, even better food. Great experience all round! 👍
The restaurant was quite packed even on weekdays. Reservation is a must. The small portion is a bit big even for 2 persons. Enjoyed the food very much. However after the dinner realized didn’t tried the roast duck or seen it on the menu...Oh well will have to visit again 😏
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.
Overall, the food is 3/5 but not amazing. It's what you expected of normal roasted duck, sio bak and char siew. The char siew is soft, probably sous vide prior to roasting. The toasting formed a crust on the surface which taste a little too caramelized but it didn't taste bitter or burnt. I've ordered ice tea with lychee sorbet, it's a small mug that cost $6.80. Tea with canned lychee sorbet. Better off with canned drinks. Noodles and rice is soft and didn't taste special. I would say noodles are better tasting at famous bak chor mee and rice is better at Boon Tong Kee. It's chicken rice they served. Golden Shrimp Wanton is mushy and probably made with frozen shrimps as there is no sweetness to the filling. The sauce was not served in a sauce dish but one blob on the corner of the plate. Environment is 3/5 too as its generally spacious and the food came fast. Damage is $53 for 2 pax. Verdict: Not worth a second visit as there's nothing to shout about.
The whole place was nicely deco which lightening make it look like a cafe. Food pricing on the expensive side but still affordable. The taste of the roasted meat was not bad. Char siew on the sweeter side but nicely marinated & char. Roasted pork skin was crunchy you can hear the ka cha ka cha sound when you bite. And mixed with layered fats which is the best! Roasted duck my friend say ok cos I cannot eat. Overall a great experience. Decided to come again with my a group of friends. Oh ya the service guy (dunno the name) was quite friendly.
We had the private dining room for 14pax. However, the longest wall of the room was done in wall-cladding tiles and it was so difficult for us to hear one another for our order to be taken as the sound kept bouncing off the room. Terrible, terrible. Only one ipad for ordering without any hardcopy menu available so it was a huge challenge for the one keying in the group order. As the noise/sound is trapped inside this small enclosed space, the group had to keep our voices very low as we shared some communal dishes. The food is very delicious but the entire dining experience is unsatisfactory.
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.
My daughter chose to dine in Fook kin to celebrate her belated birthday, she raved about it and wanted us to try it. We were planning to take her for other cuisines, but she insist for a change to have local delights. We were impress with the food & service, the charsiew & roast meat was thumbs up, Charsiew was juicy and tender, roast meat crispy and tasty. Good choice indeed.
