In my books the best place for yum Cha. The prawn and chive dumplings is a favourite. Ask the waiter for the king prawn dumplings that are prepared at a little steaming station, they come with a soy and coriander dipping sauce and it is just brilliant.
Stopped by for Sunday Yum Cha! We got seated towards the back on the raised section and my first thought was oh no the food trolleys wouldn't be visiting our end as much! Boy was I wrong. As soon as we sat down there was a dumpling trolley at our table within a minute. We got the usual ones and also got a spicy prawn one I hadn't got before at my other usual yum Cha place in Chinatown. Food trolleys were pretty regular on our end. We even got a waitress to ask if we wanted the steamed vegetables..ah of course! Staff were very attentive and helpful. A few different items we sampled that we normally never get. Overall, it was a great first time visit!
Due to close proximity to the CBD area, the place is regularly busy even during weekdays especially lunch breaks. The area does not seem as big as the ones I frequent at Chinatown, so make sure to arrive quite early to get a table. The dim sim offerings are quite extensive which was quite satisfying. The price range was also shown on the stamp card so for once I know how much I am spending for my dim sim as I eat them. The staffs seem to be very friendly as I witnessed one engaging in conversation with some elderlies who seemed to be having trouble deciding what to order. One thing that was of a disappointment during my visit was the inability to use my Stockland gift card for my purchase although it was clearly in the list of participating retailers. After discussing with the customer service, it turned out to be a technical error, but the staff who served me was not aware that the restaurant accepts gift cards so they just said that mine was not valid.
Great Yum Cha and a good alternative if you're looking to mix it up from dining at Sky Phoenix. The food is fresh and comes quickly. However, it can be a 30 or so minute wait to get a table if you have a few people with you and it's right on lunch time. It gets very busy midweek
