Till 30th April 2017, Si Chuan Dou Hua at PARKROYAL Kitchener Road presents a show-stopping 6 course menu at only $68++ per person, or $78++ for 2 diners (minimum 4 persons to dine). So you have 4 in your party, it works out to be only $39++ per pax. Add in the compulsory tea and pickles and that totals to $44++ per pax. This is unbeatable value for the quality and variety that is offered, especially when handcrafted dim sum and unlimited dessert buffet are part of the feast.
Not all dim sums are created equal. These days, the usual dim sum fare just ain’t good enough, hence Peony Jade had unveiled a new assortment of offerings, which not only make a statement but also cater to consumer’s discerning expectations.
One can’t help but feel cheery upon stepping into InterContinental’s Man Fu Yuan. Unlike most Chinese restaurants decked in dark woods, reds and golds, Man Fu Yuan has romantic yet nostalgic interiors of Peranakan louvered windows shutters, butterfly chandeliers, oriental lattices in light woods and velvet lavender seats. One of the more chic Chinese restaurants, I must say.
I’ve heard many positive reviews on Wah Lok’s dim sum and finally had the time to check it out. This is my first time at Carlton Hotel and I was impressed by the spacious lobby, featuring an eye-catching chandelier made out of blown glass.
Why wait till the weekends for Dim Sum feast when you can indulge in Hai Tien Lo’s weekday Dim Sum Buffet? Award-winning Hai Tien Lo serves classic Cantonese cuisine, in a regal Oriental setting. What we liked-quality morsels, awesome setting and professional service for only $48++. However we weren’t fond of several restrictions on the menu. Diners can have unlimited orders for 15 dim sum selections, but only one serving for each Chef’s Signatures, one serving of soup and 2 servings of dessert. For Hai Tien Lo Specialty (12 in total), each table is limited to only 3 choices.
We love Taste Paradise’s dim sum, but we weren’t in the mood to endure the long waiting time. Despite having made reservations, we always land up waiting for 20-30 minutes for our table to be ready because diners in the previous seating arrived late. Talk about poor time and crowd management! At its sister establishment, Canton Paradise (ARC branch), this frustrating issue is absent (even though they also have multiple seating arrangements). We could start our dim sum brunch without annoyance. For more information about Canton Paradise, check out my earlier blog post here.
A couple of months back, my family visited Cherry Garden for dim sum brunch to celebrate Mother’s Day. Located at Mandarin Oriental, this sophisticated Chinese Restaurant offers Cantonese Cuisine with an artistic modern touch. It’ impossible not to be impressed by the decor of this place. The entrance itself is very grand while the main dining area is classically designed with charcoaled teak panels to resemble an Oriental courtyard. We loved the tranquil ambience as well as the warm, attentive service.
