If you need to impress someone, bring them to Summer Pavilion! Their dishes are of the highest quality and their service is excellent. Here are some of the dishes that I tried and loved. Peking duck - never go wrong with this! The meat (on...the side) was yummy and soft too Siewmai - my fave dimsum dish of the lot we ordered Whelp soup in coconut - this is a must order if you love hot soup like me Iberico pork - juicy and tender Lobster poached rice - the noodle version is also nice but the rice one has a wow factor! We did have to wait a little longer for this but it was worth it! I had heard that their porridge is good too but I didn’t get to try it because I went on a weekday. Definitely recommended!More

Service has always been impeccable at this Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant. Amongst all, Chun Wai from Summer Pavilion is a class act. He serves with passion, is proactive, attentive yet not being intrusive. He also make good recommendations based on the menu if you share what...you are looking for. The dim sum here is outstanding! Be sure to update them when you made the reservation if you are going there for a special occasion for eg birthday celebration. Chun Wai will surprise you with a nicely arranged Shou Tao plate! Summer pavilion is always packed and it is not hard to understand why.More

We recently dine in Summer Pavilion for a birthday celebration. The dim sum is a notch above the rest. The ingredients used and the flavors in the dim sum are so juicy and fresh, absolutely delicious! The service staff Chun Wai was very attentive to...our every needs, from tea top ups to replacement of plates. Even though he was wearing a mask at all time, we could feel his warm smile behind it. The longevity peach plater was the highlight of the birthday lunch. A great restaurant to celebrate birthday or special occasions.More

We had the most enjoyable birthday lunch celebration at Summer Pavilion and impeccable service from Chun Wai and his team. Thank you so much Chun Wai and the Summer Pavilion Team for making our friend’s birthday so memorable and special! We started with the Lychee...Oolong tea, which is a must try at Summer Pavilion. I am told one can purchase the tea bag to drink at home, but the feeling is simply not the same, being served in Summer Pavilion’s exquisite tea set and with the attentiveness of the staff. Our first dish was the Century Egg Pork Congee, which is smooth, piping hot and yummy. The dim sum here is refined and the birthday celebrant’s favorite dim sum was the Deep-Fried Lobster Roll, where the fine strands of breaded vermicelli was crispy and not oily at all. The Pan-Fried Shredded Yam and Pumpkin is my favorite – the yam and pumpkin are encased within a crunchy exterior, like a sandwich, and I love the combination of biting into the crunch together with the sweetness of the root vegetables. The Steamed Xiao Long Pao Dumplings were contained in individual min-glass bowls, and it made it much easier to drink the soup if it spilled out. We didn’t even need to add any vinegar to it, and we were told later that the soup in the dumpling already had enough flavors that adding vinegar was not necessary, and we concur! The Poached Prawn, Chicken, Chinese Cabbage Dumpling with Black Vinegar was spicy and as local Singaporeans would call it, simply “shiok”! The Steamed Conpoy Dumpling with its spinach green skin was also good. We ended off with the Poached Rice Lobster and the broth was so rich and flavorful, with generous pieces of lobster. We like more crispy rice bits in our pao fan, and when we mentioned it to the staff, they promptly brought out more crispy bits for us to add to our broth! Just when we thought we had come to the end of our very enjoyable lunch, we were pleasantly surprised when Chun Wai served us complimentary longevity buns with a candle and sang us his Singapore-Idol worthy happy birthday song. He also volunteered to take a number of photos for us so we walked away with not only a satisfied tummy but many happy photos and memories as well. Thank you again Chun Wai, Chef Cheung and the whole team at Summer Pavilion for such an enjoyable lunch and successful birthday celebration!More

Each course was bursting with flavour and character. The highlight was definitely the lobster 泡饭. To compliment the good food was the excellent service. We were watching a show on the handphone and the staff even provided us with a handphone stand. 5 stars.
