Lobster and abalone, prawn dumplings with mango and mayonnaise, scallop chee cheong fun, breaded wasabi prawns, deep fried sesame balls with red bean paste. Can you spot the classics and the fusion dishes? Yep, Singapore’s Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant is revered for its innovative interpretations; but also its no-nonsense venue in the Holiday Inn Atrium along Outram Road – Oriental chic without the overcrowding that allows diners at this Outram Park gem to concentrate on the lazy susan and each other.
Singapore diners go crazy for Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant’s baked custard buns, but we think Xin’s crispy roast duck prepared with tea leaves is the real winner; the tea leaves not only impress us with the aromatic, woody notes they impart to a well-known classic of Chinese cuisine classic but we’re also won us over by the chef’s imagination (tea is so very Chinese) and sheer culinary boldness (who would have thought to use it this way?). There’s so much more to discover here, so book now and find Xin’s exemplary take on Chinese cuisine at the Holiday Inn Atrium in Outram Park.
The roasted tea leave duck is still as good. The prawns with vermicelli noodles is simply marvelous and value for money given the amount of prawns included in it. If you love spicy food, try that!
One of my favourite dim sum restaurants in Singapore. Always consistent in food quality and service. I will try their dinner service as it looks to be a traditional high quality cuisine.
Very awesome service and the food was above satisfactory. Would go back again next time. Able to sit there after eating to relax and spend time with friends and family.

The waiters n waitresses r all part timers who r inexperienced. They were slow in refilling our glasses or changed our plates n bring the condiments for our sharks fin soup. However, all said the food were not too bad n my mum likes the steam fish best commenting that it was fresh although a little small for a table of 10. They had also short us 2 abalones in one of the dishes but when we spoke to the Manager, he readily served us.
This is the wonderful experience at Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant, my guest was enjoy the food. I will bring my family to visit restaurant again.
Food as usual, was good and cant have anything adverse. Drunkard chicken and jelly fish was very delicious. However restaurant was busy so waiting time was longer than usual. A male junior service staff was very diligent. Although not very experience, but put in effort to take order and did a good job. Kudos and keep up the good work.
Loved the smoked tea duck, crisp skin & tender meat. It's a must order. Dim sum had a few hit and misses. Liu sha bao didn't have a runny centre and was more custardy. There was one scallop dish that was good, springy with a fragrant brown sauce but I can't rem the name. Overall, would visit again.
Nice ambience. Good menu selection. Had the banquet menu ---initially requested for 6 people ( we have 5 adults & 2 little kids) ---but the waitress said we have to add 1 portion --ie for 7 ; which is almost the same price as for 8 people --so we had the one for 8---but too much food.
I had the a la carte, rather than the dim sum buffet. The food was generally good, as was the few a la carte dim sum ordered. The shrimps in the siew mai and har gao were really fresh. The only downside is that they charged $3 per person for the tea, which is really expensive.
