Having just arrived in Singapore, suffering with jet lag after 13 hr flight & not knowing anywhere or anything we opted for the restaurant in our hotel, always a safe bet but we were not disappointed! Meal was amazing & waiter was helpful explaining & giving advice regarding various dishes. Not cheap but highly recommend it!

Popular Cantonese restaurant with a decent dim sum offering (no carts, ordering off the menu). You get a table for an hour and a half, at least at the weekend, which is plenty of time because the service is slick and the kitchen is well organised. Limited but good range of dim sum complemented by other dishes. Pastry is excellent... More

We were looking for a dim sum restaurant in Singapore and found this place in the Carlton Hotel. It is very fancy, with fancy prices. But there is a special dim sum luncheon menu with prices averaging USD 5 a dish. We had a great lunch for USD 27 but we are light eaters. If you are good eaters this... More

Visited Wah Lok restaurant in the Carlton Hotel for the first time today for dim sum. Good selection and quite reasonable prices with efficient service. We were quite fortunate to get a table without a reservation as it was fairly busy: next time I will probably make the reservation in advance.

This was a Chinese New Year lunch hosted for our customer. Wah Lok is well known to serve excellent Cantonese style Chinese cuisine. They have a respectful history, having been established in 1988. In fact, they are an award-winning restaurant located on the second level of the Carlton Hotel, which is centrally located in Singapore. The hotel lobby is in... More

In mid-Feb, my eldest sister treated her younger siblings and myself to this place for dinner. She commented that this place usually have very good dim sum for lunch, and that night was the first time we had dinner in that restaurant. One of the siblings like fried food, so my sister ordered fried salmon skin, which was actually crispy... More

One of the best places to eat Dim Sum in Singapore. Exceptionally good customer service, very attentive staff. I had char siew (one of the best), century egg porridge, siew mai, carrot cake, prawn dumplings, custard buns, and everything was good. I would love to eat at this restaurant again!

On short notice, I hosted a table for 10 last Friday evening while in Singapore on a business trip. I did not have time to pick the menu and went for a set banquet offering. The waiting staff was very helpful in assisting me with my selection. I specifically wanted a banquet with a whole suckling pig. That was delicious... More
