Singapore diners in search of the perfect Chinese yum cha restaurant now have three top spots to check out.

If you take a Sunday stroll along Trengganu Street, just off Temple Street in Singapore’s Chinatown, you won’t be able to ignore the crowds looking to be seated at Singapore’s most popular yum cha restaurant. Don’t forget to check out Yum Cha Chinatown’s website for special offers that you can redeem when you dine.

The staff that serve us is very friendly. Thumb up for the staff.
Generally, is acceptable. Food quality is acceptable, but a bit pricy. Service quality is good. Over charge additional one dish. Manament needs to improve in this area.
I made reservations but when I reached, they say there's no reservations for 4 pax :(
Yum Cha Chinatown, on Trengganu Street just off Temple Street, is the flagship outlet for Singapore’s three Yum Cha restaurants, joining Yum Cha Garden and Yum Cha at Changi as one of Singapore’s most popular Chinese restaurants. Taken together, it’s evident that the three Yum Cha Restaurants epitomise the yum cha dining experience in Singapore – for one, you couldn’t ask for a simpler and more representative name for this group of restaurants, could you? But the proof is in the pudding, as they say, and there’s no doubt that Yum Cha Chinatown lives up to its name, not to mention its location!
Yum Cha Chinatown’s dim sum are renowned across Singapore, with people crowding the tables to give these and delicacies such as Yum Cha’s award-winning black pepper crab a go. Sundays are traditionally busy – make sure you book in advance – and, speaking of tradition, customers are getting hip to another interesting Yum Cha Chinatown offering – the opportunity to dine in the traditional tapino style, where friends and family gather to gossip around a hot pot of soup the Cantonese way.
