I'd walked the longest way to get here, part was lost and part was its far. I went here in the afternoon and it was crowded full of table and they set for me a table in the corner. The servant was really good, but...More

The decor and color scheme of restaurant were very pleasing. We dined on the 2nd night of Chinese New year and surprisingly the number of diners was sparse. They must have had only a skeleton staff because service was slow and inattentive. The menu was...More

Service was below average & especially considering that there was only one other table during that time. Food was alright. We enjoyed the Peking duck. We were expecting much better food & service, looks like standard has deteriorated over the years.

Excellent dim sum in a nice classy setup. The decor looks tired but it seems like the hotel will be renovated in 2017.

Enjoyed it. Good tasting variety. Pork buns were my favourite. Nice and juicy filling. Desserts surprisingly good too. The decorations is a bit kitsch but nice historic. A fun way to experience Raffles at lunch.

If you like dim sum, dont go here. If you like nice looking decors and couldnt care less about the dining experience, then maybe royal china is your place. To sum up, the dim sum was of abysmal quality, the service was slow and inattentive,...More

Wonderful Dim Sum at a worthy price. It's not too expensive and their Shao Rou (Roasted Pork) is a must order dish. Char Siew Buns are very good as well.
