They offer quite a variety of choice. But too pity that they don't have Custard Bun ( Liu Sha Bao ), one of my favorite dimsum. Besides, Liu Sha Bao 流沙包, Xiao long bao is one of my favorite too. oo bad , their Xiao Long Bao doesn't really taste good, seems too dry a

Their Har Gow ( Shrimp Dumpling ) and Siomay are delicious. Anyway , if you order a bun ..I advice you to eat it once it serve on your table to Don't let it keep too long if you don't want eat a stone ...

we had our november dinner @ ban heng harbourfront centre on 24.11.2014.

i had not been to this ban heng outlet before. the last time G20 had a 23pax dinner at ban heng at orchard central, food was quite average.

this outlet has 2 ala carte buffet menu – one pried at S$28.80++ here, and the other at S$21.80++. from what i can see the main difference is for the S$28.80 menu you get to pick 1 order of abalones, crabs, froglegs, live prawns, scallops. we took the S$28.80++ menu.

#1 roast duck was passable. but c/w the beautiful roast duck at both canton paradise star vista & canton paradise J-cube or with the noodles restaurant at centrepoint, this would be a poor & distant cousin.

#2 drunken chicken was average, competent.

liked the vegetables, #3 garlic spinach & #4 sambal kang kong.

#5 deep-fried soon hock was a standard dish. it was done well.

#6 beef with bitter gourd black bean sauce was also done well. this was as good as any good zi char, say kok sen at keong saik street or hong kong street chun kee at commonwealth crescent or ah orh at bukit merah.

#7 steamed prawns was good like any good seafood restaurant.

surprisingly the #8 sharks fin soup though gluey like any served at weddings in yesteryears, had very tasty stock. this was much better than ban heng orchard central.

#9 frog legs with ginger & spring onions was also a competent dish. .

#10 roast pork. all my friends liked this a lot. we had a second order. meat looked great, was tender & tasty & skin was crisp. i would say presentation & taste-wise still a tad below what i had recently at tunglok central.

#11 fried prawns with celery – passable, nothing interesting.

#12 char siew looked & tasted great. of the 2 dishes, my friends liked the roast pork better.

#13 abalones with mushrooms & spinach. this was quite good dish also. the braising sauce though was nothing like the really good brown sauce served in good cantonese restaurants say ah yat abalones forum restaurant for abalone dishes (also goose web & spiky sea cucumber dishes) or at chao yue xuan.

#14 deep-fried tilapia in thai sauce was an interesting dish. it had less meat so some friends preferred the soon hock dish to this.

#15 scallops in yam nest. scallops were average & overall this dish was poor, below par, not even comparable with a good yam basket say at ah orh w/o expensive scallops.

#16 chai poh minced pork with steamed bean curd, i think this was really poor.

#17 sweet & sour soup. this was a pretty good soup.

#18 pepper crab was quite the usual seafood restaurant standard, for sure better than spices cafe. self service dessert were quite standard. aloe vera with jelly was quite refreshing & pulut hitam the usual.

overall, food here was better than ban heng orchard central but not as good aspeach gardens miramar. for S$28.80++ pax it was 2/3 the price of spices cafe w/o the lobster. i guess quite an ok deal.

Roasted Meat with Jellyfish

The roasted pork is quite fattening, not much of lean meat. The dark has the roasted taste but it's little too hard to bite. The jellyfish is quite long and hard to chew, and I almost choke on it.

The noodles are rather salty and there are not much ingredients. Will tend to get sick of it after some bites.

豆沙锅饼 Red Bean Pancake

Wrapped by a thick layer of crispy texture, the red bean filling taste extra great when placed in your mouth. My favourite dish in this set meal !

SERVICE:
Staffs are quite friendly, but need to be reminded constantly to change our plates after "dirty affair" (removing prawns/crabs' shell)

AMBIENCE:
Just a normal restaurant to me. Nothing of the extraordinary caught my attention.

PRICE:
It's considered cheap for a set meal dinner at a restaurant, though it's not that fantastic, but still edible! Great for people who would like to give a treat but at an economical level...
The restaurant also has its buffet menu. The buffet menu is priced cheaply at $19 or $25 per pax. However, price of the food sometimes determine its quality. So try at your own risk!

the menu looks good with great variety of food. price is reasonable too, so we decided to try.but it was a mistake. all our expectations were dashed. first, the waiter is quite rude, kinda of attitude problem. food is only so so, the sesame ball is very hard, like stone. the steamed dim sum is can do. the crispy stuff is acceptable. i will not come here again. not recommended.

I went to Ban Heng for ala cart buffet lunch with my family. Was very excited and looking forward to dining there as the menu looks good. However, felt a bit disappointed after our meal there. There is a wide selection of food from the menu. I like the sesame ball and deep fried shrimp dumpling. Others are so so.Service is so so only too - took a bit long to deliver orders. I will not go back there again.

We had ordered a set dinner for 10 people at Ban Heng for a family gathering. My favourite dish was the roasted suckling pig. The skin was so sinful we enjoyed it immensely.

the good thing about this store is the budget buffet, each person is about 14bucks for weekday lunch

Today i went with my family for my early birthday celebration
This restaurant is located inside the carpark
Heard that they have changed new boss,so the food was just OK
Upon entered,there's a strong smelly smell ,There' not much customer,only 3-4tables
Is buffet style,we just tick what we want & give it to the waitress
The bowl seem to be a bit dirty & is yellowish
Total we ordered about 17dishes
Among all i like the sour sweet pork more
Actually we ordered sour sweet pork & sour sweet fillet
But ended up they served 2 plate of sour sweet pork
We told the china waitress,but she doesn't seem to understand it & told us "sour sweet pork & fillet "is the same
There's actually quite limited choice
NO sotong,no scallop ....
Usually brocolli will come with scallop,but their brocolli just served with garlic & was abit oily,The crispy duck,i saw the word "crispy"that why ordered it but it turned up to be just a plate of normal cold duck,was such a letdown
Fried chicken wing was very crispy but too bad too flat ,blendless
When we asked the waitress what dessert do they have,she told us have mango...
but is self service,when i walked over,there's only 4 kind
Which is "winter melon pork rib soup<this also consider as dessert??>,red bean paste,almond fruit mix & some white milky thing with sago
Red bean paste & white milky thing was so diluted that hardly can taste the fragrances
Overall i rate 6/10
