“Nice dimsum for a quick fix. Great wok-fried veggies too.”
Review of Tsing Tao - CLOSED

We came here for lunch directly after a gruelling train ride (it's pretty near to the westbahnhof) and as with most good chinese restaurants, they'll have photos pasted near the entrance of stars who have dined there.

Their dimsum seems to be offered round the clock (unlike the usual lunch hours dim sum in london and singapore abide by) and is quite tasty. I liked the radish cake and the hargao (shrimp dumpling), as well as their century egg and fish slice porridge. Their vegetables are also great if you already have a meat heavy order.

The glutinous rice had too much pork flavour and had a few chunks of ham in it?! I'd strongly recommend you NOT to order their glutinous rice. None of us could stomach a mouthful except my boyfriend since he eats anything.

The rest of the dimsum was quite average, especially the siew mai in a mushroom cap - they quarter the mushroom cap before putting the shrimp and pork paste on -_-

For desserts I would recommend the red bean triangle (red bean stuffed mochi shaped in a triangle then fried) but not the tang yuan filled with vanilla cream and rolled in coconut flakes. Tang yuan should be filled with peanut cream or sesame cream or red bean, we could not distinguish what was inside the tang yuan.

The restaurant is kind of smoky and we also found two eyelashes in our chrysanthemum tea.

My partner and I had lunch at Tsing Tao as she was craving Dim Sum and thought based upon a review in a publication this would be a good restaurant to visit. It was not.

Her Dim Sum did not not meet her expectations, with the possible exception of the prawn Dim Sum, the other two were not up to her wishes. I had menu 1A, which consisted of warm, not hot soup, two primary dishes (beef and chicken) and fruit salad for dessert. Neither the beef nor chicken had much in the way of flavor and the chicken would be best described as rubber chicken.

I would not recommend this unless you were looking for a place that had atmosphere and reasonable service - but lousy food.
