No greeting at our arrival set the tone for our final meal in Singapore. No printed menus were provided and the supplied QR code was difficult to scan in the poor light. We chose the lunch set menus and asked for oolong tea and was...delivered jasmine tea. The food was good but the pacing of the dishes was poor. The dim sum was delivered to cool at the table while we finished our soup. After the final course we were informed that the register was closing and we needed to pay. It seemed we were an inconvenience and they would have preferred we ate somewhere else. Rest assured we won't be returning.More

Don't enjoy the lunch at all. I have made this reservation a month ago for a birthday celebration. To my disappointment, the table that was assigned to me was in the middle section next to the counter. All 4 or 5 tables in that middle...section was empty except the table was assigned to my family. The service was very poor. Waited for almost an hour before the mains where served and most of the dishes were very salty and bland. The dishes were not well presented especially the dim sum trio. Overall experience was very poor!More

Though restaurant was less then half full it took significant amount of time to get service. We ordered Dim Sum as described in menu: 1. Steamed Fresh Prawns Dumplings - dumplings were brought cold and did not taste as freshly prepared from fresh prawns or...freshly steamed. In addition no condiments like soya sauce where offered and no server in site to ask for. 2. Pan-fried Carrot cake with Chinese Sausage was cold and tasteless 3. Shanghai Buns cold not freshly prepared and tasteless 4. Steamed Chicken Feet, though brought very hot but was chewy and tasted as fast reheated dish. 5. Spring rolls came as freshly prepared dish and reasonably tasty The only good quality was bottle of San Pellegrino and Pumpkin Broth with Crab meat. We could not stop anyone to raise our concern about food. It took also too long to pay the bill, so we could leave.More

We went there during lunch time, the ambience was pleasant, the staff was polite and attentive to our request, and the food quality was amazing. The meat of the pecking duck we chose to be prepared with ginger and spring onion style, and it's really...one of the best I've ever tasted. As for the vermicelli prawn and fish maw in the claypot, though it's nice and tasty but honestly it's a bit pricey. All the soups were very good. Overall it's a very good decision to dine here. Will come back again.More

The peking duck and the lobster rice dishes were excellent at Yan. After dinner, we trooped upstairs to enjoy the excellent night view of the city sky line, with the padang in front and the Marina Bay Sands Hotel behind it.

it is tucked at a corner on Level 5. If you are driving you may proceed straight to level 5 from the carpark lift. Ambience wise is good. And it is quite fully seated that Saturday lunch, so it's wise to book first. Service attitude...wise is just acceptable. We tried a variety of usual Dim Sum like Char Siew buns, Siew Mai and Har Gao. and sheng jian bao etc. we all agree that the fillings somehow is drier than most of dim sum we tried out elsewhere. May mean that it is healthier as it is less oily. We ordered the fried rice, and that's the only dish outside dim sum we ordered and it was good with the wokhey's effect. I will still go again to try other dishes other than the dim sum.More

We had an enjoyable experience at Yan over the weekend. The occasion was a double birthday celebration for my mother and my niece. Among the many dishes, we ordered the Lobster Porridge, Bak Kut Teh xiaolongbao and Peking Duck. The chefs were in good control...down to the details - even the balance meat from the Peking Duck (still tender when stir-fried with beansprouts and spring onions), the appetiser (sugared walnuts), Eight Treasure Tea, the Coconut Mango Cream dessert and the surprise birthday longevity buns tasted great. The service from the staff was also attentive and pleasant. Thank you, Yan!More
