Better than your average Crystal Jade
Overall Score 
The place is always packed to the brim, so making a reservation is most recommended. Any Singaporean would recognize this place from their aggressive advertising back in the days before Lido was renovated. It's probably proof that advertising DOES work, really.

They've since moved to Ngee Ann City instead, a place jam packed with eateries - quite impossible to get a seat at any of these on a Sunday. They're definitely famous for their animal-shaped dim sum, so those you have to try, just based on how adorable they look!

Other dim sums that I would recommend would be the Steamed Custard Buns. The golden lava just oozes out .. a pile of molten goodness. Not too sweet and not too salty, the chef has got it nailed. I did like the pan-fried beef pepper bao as well, something you wouldn't find in usual dim sum restaurants. Har Kau and Siew Mai were above average, but not anything to scream about.

I'd definitely come back here again, and with more space in my tummy!
