A colleague from work took my family to dinner at this place, which she said served traditional Chinese food. Apparently this place has been in the local scene for decades, and is famous for its Hong Kong dimsum and Cantonese cuisine. The place itself is not impressive, typical bare minimum dining tables and chairs, no aircon. But the food is... More

When you go the Chinatown in the summer and looking for a restaurant to chill and eat great and cheap Dim Sim, this is the place. Great location although easy to miss. You will have authentic Dim Sum, served quickly. The ambiance is food court so do not expect the fancy dim sum place but the Prices are also Low... More

Had lunch here today looks like all the locals eat here. Good food nothing fancy very crowded and hard to have a conversation. We had 5 assorted dishes and drinks $23.10SGD. Only chopsticks a bit of a challenge. Then what are fingers for.

We certainly enjoyed every bite at Task Po today. From the savoury yum cha to the sweet coffee and egg tarts...everything was delicious. Enjoy!

It's not fancy and you order by ticking boxes on the list on your table. Stumbled across this place, it was quite busy so we thought we give it a try. I don't know much about Chinese cuisine but they seemed to specialise in clay pot dishes. We had some spring rolls and some pork dumplings to share and shared... More

Wandering around Chinatown with some work colleagues, we were on a mission to find some dim sums for our NA friends. We cam across Tak Po along Smith ST just down from the Chinatown outdoor stalls. The ambience was friendly and the staff efficient. The array of dim sums was mixed and varied with great cold Tiger beers. Perfect for... More

The good thing about this restaurant is, the dim sum is inexpensive. So, the quality of the dim sum is just average. It is therefore not worth to queue for the dim sum as the service in terms of cleanliness, and speed has to be improved. I haven't try the other types of food so no comment. Overall, this is...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
