Been twice. The quality of the food here is amazing. The signature pork dumplings are the best I ever tried. Everything I had (shrimp dumplings, pork buns, stuffed green peppers, cucumber salad, ... ) was just delicious. For 30$ you get quite a lot of food (on the other hand, a small bottle of Heineken beer is 12$). I agree with other reviews that the service may be a little brusque. It seems to be always busy, better to avoid the rush hours (roughly noon to 2 pm, 6 to 8 pm).

The signature pork dumpling is the juiciest & most flavourful compared to other dumpling shops in Singapore. The prawn pancake is crispy, light & delicious. Great place for a simple Chinese meal.

This was our second venture to Singapore and having already been to this restaurant once on our last trip I decided to give it another go for a review.

When we arrived we were told that the wait was 20 minutes and we were given a make-shift menu and a pen for ticking boxes for orders. After we tried to ask the receptionist for some advice she wrote something on our "menu" and hurried to another consumer. Quite brusque but we acknowledged that they were under a lot of stress and patiently waited.

I was more than pleasantly surprised when the efficient dim sum came out and it was absolutely stunning, the dumplings and wontons were exceptional. After that, it was a lovely meal and we all had a very good time amongst the bustling crowd. Recommend the vegetables with garlic!

We came for a meal after a long flight and the food was quite frankly delicious, In particular the chili crab dumplings and baos of various varieties and freshly fried vegetables. Our receptionist was a little brusque but perhaps that was partly to do with the long queue of slightly bolshy hungry clients on a busy Saturday night. This is the second time we've been and I'm sure he will come again which is high praise considering there are at least 20 other options for food within 100 yards.

Tasty fresh Chinese food produced quickly without fuss. What could be better?

This restaurant can be very busy at times causing you to wait for a while... but yes, it is worth the wait! The food is so good and the service is excellent! the pricing is mid range so its pretty affordable. We usually had a large business group - 10-15 people...and they accommodated us with no problem. Every time I go to Singapore this is a must go ... usually multiple times per trip!
