Small place. The singer could not sing live that day because she was cold and she was coughing pretty much. I totally understand that but then u should get another price or cancel the show. It was very expensive for what we got.
Joined only for the delicious tea and pudding. Introductory comments to the art of chinese opera were made and proved to be very useful to take most of this experience. Only issue was some members of the Theather speaking during the presentation....they should be more...More
There was a final total of six patrons inclusive. We had a set Chinese meal which was fine and the whole feeling was of sitting in someone’s dining room having their home-cooked meal. It was a nice ambience. After a hour a leader of the...More

We really enjoyed both the food and the event at the Chinese Opera Teahouse. The venue is in Smith St, a busy location in the middle of Chinatown. Inside and away from the crowds outside, you are first provided with a Chinese meal which we...More
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
