“More Fast Food than authentic Chinese”
Reviewed 3 May 2013 via mobile

The food is not very authentic and much like a fast food restaurant. Our bill included a charge for napkins, the 'complimentary' peanuts ($6) and tap water. Overall, quite a disappointing experience.

“Food still good...service is getting worse”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

Went to Crystal Jade Dining In in Vivo again after visiting in July last year. The food is still excellent and of high quality. XLB was excellent, some of the best in the city in terms of quality but terrible value (almost $2 each!). Congee, Roasted Pork Belly, Steamed Pork Bun - all very good.

Generally I was not impressed with the service (rude and spilling tea all over the table), nor with their lack of Chinese Tea and Ice Coffee... (Jasmine Tea at $2/Pax)

On top of everything, there was a seashell in the Radish Cake, very sharp and sizable...

There are many places with better value in Singapore, I won't returning to this Crystal Jade location.

“Traditional dim sum, smart and modern setting”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

Went for family dim sum Sunday lunch. Friendly service, delicious yam cha and fairly reasonable prices. Nice view of the promenade and the marina looking over towards Sentosa. Going again soon.
