In the Chimes Centre the Yard is without the main restaurant of Lei nevertheless the menu is extensive and difficult to review as only a fraction of the offering can be enjoyed at any one time.
The setting is lovely and sitting outside on a tropical evening a nice way to experience some of the food here.
What we did eat was very good as befits the standard of the main Michelin restaurant inside BUT the prices are not diluted and as another reviewer commented they are exorbitant.
Food apart even a bottle of Tsing Tao beer is S$20, a very modest glass of Merlot S$22.
I am glad I visited but it is not for the faint-hearted.

Lei Garden's crispy pork dish is one of the best in Singapore and their tim sum ingredients are very fresh. Good food and service, pretty pricey though.

Lei garden has been in around for last 40 years. Servicing Cantonese cuisine and it has one of the best time sum I have ever tried.

Overly priced but If you are looking for a conducive environment with relatively good food this is the place to try.

Everything here best eaten in its original flavor and you don't need any extra soya sauce or other condiments to go with it.

Thumbs up to the Chef who did a great job !

Best of all you don't get extra thirsty after eating which may means is MSG free.

When one is paying $42 for 9 pieces of roasted pork, each twice the size of a man's thumb, it could well be said that the food is overpriced. Granted, though, that the above mentioned dish was Iberico pork over glutinous rice, and had almost unparalleled roasting done. It was delicious. The lobster broth with rice and condiments, which came in a luxurious looking claypot, was extremely delicious, could easily feed 2, and well worth the $28. The prawn with mushroom was expensive at $42, but also worth mentioning was the seasoning which made the dish tasty in general. Chinese tea, which the restaurant has several offerings of, were utterly ridiculously priced. For example, Pu'er was at $88 per pot, astounding indeed. The restaurant has won several awards, and is recommended for the taste of the food, though be prepared for the cost of an arm and leg for the dishes. There is an affordable lunch set menu of $38 per person, and I will probably revisit the restaurant, if only for the lunch.
