First of all, the branch I have been to was along serangoon road, near boon keng MRT. This is the main kitchen where they produce their dim sum, and bring it over to the geylang branch. So the food would be more fresh here.

Due to the open air nature, it may get warm depending on the weather. However, as it opens only at night, it is rather cooling.

A look at the menu showed me what I wanted. A huge variety of dishes only at about $2-$5 each. At this price, it would be great choice for large families to gather together and catch up over dinner. It is also good for friends to hang out while having dim sum.

Char shao bao and har gau are the main dishes in all dim sum. Thus, I would mainly be commenting about them. The Char shao bao taste great, but the skin is a little too thick for my liking. In this sense, Ho Kee Pau's char shao bao is actually better. However, this one is not far behind.

The Har Gau is rich in it's taste, and the skin is not too thin as seen in many other restaurants. This came as a surprise for me, as I was not expecting something this good for its price.

The other dishes I tried were also great, notably the glutinous rice, which retained the smell and taste, while not being overly sticky.

The auntie serving me was friendly and helpful in suggesting what to order. She also likes to chat with customers if you are friendly with her as well.

Final note, I often go to Hong Kong to visit my relatives, so I have tried many dim sum in Hong Kong. Honestly, this stall is unable to compete with Hong Kong's standards, but here in Singapore, it is actually one of the best dim sum I have tried.

Great for a break of the normal restaurant food or local food!
