A Dining Experience Made Better WIth Great Service
Chinese dining at its best. Honestly, if not for the food, go for the service. People forget that service is a vital part of any shopping/dining experience. These waiters and waitresses go all the way out to changing our plates regularly, topping up our tea and even covering the clay-pot dish as they mix it up a bit so that the oil and sauce does not splatter on to us. All without interrupting out meal much.
They have a special blend of tea (I apologize I really cannot remember the name of this beverage. Taking that I scored a mere pass for Mandarin at my O' levels, this comes as no surprise) that is fragrant and delightful. But since it is a special blend, it comes at a special price too.
Needless to say, their dishes are served with top quality, from the taste to the delivery. Once, a waitress de-bone a steam fish with little trouble.
Definitely slightly pricier than most Chinese dining places. But what's life without a little indulgence? The one thing I don't like though is that they have shark's fin. But that's just the new-age hippy 21st century kid me talking.
Excellent Service And Great Food
Part of the Imperial Treasure Group, La Mian Xiao Long Bao is an offshoot branch that specialises in La Mian, Xiao Long Bao and dim sum wanton dumplings, but also serves typical Chinese Zi Char dishes. As a fine dining restaurant, Imperial Treasure Group (La Mian Xiao Long Bao) hold itself to high standards, consistently winning awards or placing among the top / best restaurants in Singapore.
Ambience at Imperial Treasure Group (La Mian Xiao Long Bao) promises semi-private dining. Booths are designed to be rather spacious, but with high partitions, ensuring that conversation doesn't carry over to the other tables. Imperial Treasure Group (La Mian Xiao Long Bao) has a modern, elegant look and feel, with dark mahogony colours and smooth lines. The actual floor space for dining is rather small, though you don't feel this due to the good design and layout of the place.
Service at Imperial Treasure Group (La Mian Xiao Long Bao) is excellent. Befitting a Chinese Zi Char restaurant of this standard, staff are well trained, knowledgable about the menu, able to provide recommendations, polite, observant and efficient. The drawback; some of them are unable to converse in English, though all staff do have at least a basic understanding of the language. So while you can speak to them in English and they understand, some staff (not all) can only reply in Mandarin Chinese.
As a speciality niche restaurant, Imperial Treasure Group (La Mian Xiao Long Bao) focuses on creating hand made la mian noodles, and hand made wanton dumplings that are really good. The other half of the menu features several Chinese Zi Char dishes, and while tasty, the other outlets in the Imperial Treasure Group tend to do slightly better versions of them. In general though, expect to get good quality, tasty food at Imperial Treasure Group (La Mian Xiao Long Bao).
Expect higher than average pricing at Imperial Treasure Group (La Mian Xiao Long Bao), especially due to its location. I would recommend Imperial Treasure Group (La Mian Xiao Long Bao) more for special occasions, rather than casual weekend or everyday dining.
A satisfying meal
I visited the marina square branch a week ago for dinner with my boyfriend. We ordered the yang zhou fried rice, chicken herbal soup noodles and XLBs, which is just a typical order at any chinese eatery. The quality was just average, the yang zhou fried rice presentation looked simple and tasted ok-ok but it was missing the wok-hei taste that i adored. The chicken herbal soup was clear and refreshing, without any strong hint of herbs. The chicken pieces were tender and easy to bite. XLBs were pretty disappointing, i think Din Tai fung still serves the best XLB!
This is a good place for families, friends and dates with your partners and i will still come back again if i pass by, as there are still many substitutes in the vicinity.
I tried the famed Imperial Treasure dim sum for the first time yesterday. I was definitely not disappointed, to say the least.
Although I consider myself a connoisseur of Chinese food, I was blown away at how well-prepared the food here was. Being at the ION outlet, there are some dishes that are unavailable elsewhere, and I tried them all (friend's birthday party, he spent about 2k). I have to say that the custard bun, a cult favourite amongst patrons was probably my favourite thing there, despite all the goodies. It's just so fragrant and soaked up the cream perfectly, making it a great appetiser.
Highly recommended, to say the least.
Dim Sum Dolly
I used to go very often to Crystal Jade, but recently I’ve ended up going to their arch rival Imperial Treasure more often. A friend recommended I try the roast duck chee cheong fun. Being a dim sum traditionalist, I had my doubts at first about replacing the shrimp with the gamey tasting duck (I don’t even like CCF with char siew), but it was love at first bite and now I’m hooked! This delicacy is not available at all the Imperial outlets – I go to the one at Ion for it.
My only quibble is that the Ion branch which I frequent is so claustrophobic and cramped. The section at the back of the restaurant is particularly cramped and the acoustics cause the din to be amplified.
Like many Singaporeans, I love dimsum and I'm always on the hunt for the best xiaolongbao or custard bun in town.
At $20 per pax (approx), Imperial is one of the more affordable places where you can have decent dimsum, especially when you are looking to dine in a restaurant setting. It is good to go in a large group and order various dishes to try. In addition. You could also reserve a round table in a private corner away from the hustle and bustle of the restaurant.
The custard bun tops the list of Must-Try dishes in Imperial. In fact, I feel that Imperial serves one of the best custard buns in Singapore. There are three buns per basket. To begin with, the size of the bun is just right, unlike some restaurants that serve buns that are too small. The best part of the bun would, of course, be the filling. The piping hot custard oozes out at the first bite. It is not too salty or creamy, and when you finish one bun, you feel like having another one. Other recommended dishes include the xiaolongbao and carrot cake. I also liked the fact that they served us Kung Fu tea at the start and at the end of the meal. Authentic!
I didn't particularly fancy the cheecheongfan and the yi fu mian though, because both dishes were quite cold when they were served. You might want to try their yam paste to round up the meal. Personally, I preferred the pumpkin yam paste to the almond one because it was more fragrant. For the latter, I couldn't really taste the almond flavour, so it was rather bland.
In general, it was a very satisfying meal. It was made even more enjoyable with the good service. I will definitely be back again!
Choose your outlet wisely
I visited Imperial Treasure in ION basement recently with friends. One of them had just returned to Singapore and wanted dim sum badly. Since we were meeting for dinner, and most restaurants only offer dim sum for lunch, we went to Imperial Treasure after hearing they had dim sum for dinner.
As it turned out, they only have a small range of Shanghai dim sum in the evenings. We had been expecting Cantonese dim sum - which is totally different - so we ended up only ordering xiao long bao from the dim sum menu and a la carte dishes instead. Everything was delicious, especially the crispy roast duck and roast pork. The only thing we were unhappy with was the red date steamed bun, which requires an acquired taste. My friend spat it out after a bite.
Imperial Treasure has a good reputation for Chinese cuisine, but before you visit their restaurants, check each branch's specialty before deciding if that's what you want!
affordable chinese cuisine
Imperial Treasure adopts open kitchen concept. One can easily look through the transparent window and see how the chefs prepares the work while enjoying your food. From the outside, the kitchen looks very neat and clean and this definitely gives me a piece of mind when dining ( I am pretty particular with hygiene).
I have to say, having dined at Imperial Treasure for countless of times over many years, they have never once failed me. Not once did they get my orders wrongly, and I always leave the restaurant feeling very satisfied. One thing for sure, I feel that the food there are very healthy. Hardly any deep fried food and mainly steamed and stir fried. Their service is very prompt and food are served quickly even during peak hours.
I love their Xiao Long Bao, home made noodles, and tofu dishes. Despite much debates over their Xiao Long Baos and Din Tai Fung's, I would say, their Xiao Long Baos are on par with Din Tai Fung, or maybe even slightly better! :)
The dim-sum and noodles at Imperial Treasure are definitely drool-worthy! I went to the outlet at ION and it was on a crowded weekend afternoon. When there are no more seats left in the restaurant, you would be handed a queue number and will be served when your queue number flashes on the screen. I think that this is a fair and orderly way to handle the crowd. My friend and I waited no more than 20 minutes for our turn and was led to our seats.
My friend and I ordered 3 baskets of dim sums. 2 baskets of steamed pork dumpling with prawns and another basket of prawn dumpling (har-kau). For mains, my friend ordered the dumpling noodles and I order a bowl of dumpling la-mien. As you can tell, we really like to eat dumplings!! The food took some time to arrive, probably due to the crowd. Nevertheless, we were satisfied with the food. The prawns in the dumplings were juicy, fresh and bouncy. The noodles were al-dente and the broth, although a little bland, was still fragrant. Although prices are a little steep here, the quality makes it really worth it. As the reviewer mentioned below, the noodles do come in a huge quantity! We could not finish the food we ordered and decided that the next time we are here again, 1 bowl of noodles would suffice as a main to share.
Basin of Noodles
A basin of noodles; that was first the description that came to my mind when my bowl of noodles arrived at my table. Served in a large bowl with a large spoon (more like a mini ladle) to match, my dinner was one of the best Chinese style ramens I’ve ever had. A delicious flavourful broth wrapped around the noodles that were cooked to springy perfection, with crisp vegetables and beef brisket that was so tender, my dinner was truly enjoyable.
But that was just mine. My friend was more of a finger food person, so came her orders of spring rolls, spring onion pancakes and my pig’s ears. The pancakes were a bit too oily for my liking, but I have to say that they were really light in texture, which helped to balance out the oiliness, but only slightly. The spring rolls were normal, thankfully crispy. Pig’s ears! Something that I can hardly find after the old uncle who was selling it at the redhill market moved away. I enjoy a good serving of it, and this did not disappoint. Sliced thinly, seasoned properly, it was so crunchy and tasty.
And how could we forget dessert. We insisted on having some even though we were stuffed, and what else other than red bean pancakes? Sad to say, the portion we had on that day was a bit too sweet. I do have a sweet tooth, but really fussy when it comes to desserts, especially traditional ones.
All in all, the dinner was a great one. The noodles are always the first thing on my list, and whenever I’m feeling like a treat for some noodles, this is definitely the ‘to-go’ spot
