The decor isn’t the most refined, the tables are small, the chairs not particularly comfortable and the ceiling is low, but we’d been recommended this place so we disregarded all of the above.
We didn’t wait to be seated though it was early afternoon. The waitress brought jasmine tea, the menu and a curious contraption on legs with a cover in which to place our bags, the minute we sat down.
We wanted dumplings so that’s what we went for, including the signature steamed truffle and pork and steamed gourd and shrimp dumplings, as well as bok choi along with two bottles of beer.
The dumplings were fabulous with tasty, crunchy (for the vegetables) fillings but the vegetables were disappointing, slightly watery and under seasoned. Service was efficient but not particularly friendly. The bill was salty for Singapore but then we were shocked at how much more food here costs these days.
Go for the dumplings which mitigate the place’s other shortcomings.
