Xiao long bao's skin may not be as thin as din tai fung but the soup is very present
Sliced pork roll with cucumber and garlic is a cold dish that definitely got our appetites rolling

The menu which shows what selections you can choose from. The more people that come, the more worth it it'll be!

Will visit this branch usually after visiting the Kinokuniya. Decided to try something different instead of ordering the usual spicy la mian & the watercress honey drink.Was too hungry to go home for dinner. And settled for the double boiled chicken soup. The soup has too much msg but the chicken meat is tender. Needed a dessert after the dinner and ordered the mango pudding. Although it is flavourful with mango, but there's a slight over-taste of mango essence.. will not eat this again.I will s

The Jian Bao at Crystal Jade is quite unique. I have never tasted anything like that before. It's almost like a Xiao long bao in a pau skin with the pork filling almost identical to the Xiao long bao filling with juice and everything, it's even served with vinegar and ginger just like a Xiao long bao. The bottom of the bao is fried so it's crisp and crunchy while the top still mantains it's fluffiness. Quite a unique snack!

Crystal jade is a good choice for a quick dinner with friends or family! It's affordable and always serves consistently good food. The fried rice has good wok hei and is not too oily. Especially like the salted fish and chicken one, which is really tasty! The rice is not too soft and the generous toppings make this a really nice dish! Also good is the zha jiang mien! Soft noodles with a deliciously savoury pork sauce!

Somehow I like to eat Chinese-style La Mian, it was plain but tasty to eat. We finally decided to come this reataurant to have our dinner, Crystal Jade La Mian and Xiao Long Bao located at Ngee Ann City. The queue length was acceptable.Started with a Menu, a wide range of food to be chosen. We were served by a polite staff. The soup of the La Mian was excellent and not oily.

A bit spicy, flavourful pork with potatoes inside. We shared this dish among ourselves.

Overall, the environment considered comfortable but the price was slightly higher.

It has been a long time since I visited Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao. Since we were in the vicinity we decided to try our luck to see if we could get our seats without waiting too long on a Sat evening.

Our favourite dish was the Xiao Long Bao, but to our disappointment, it is now only 5 small pcs for $5. Luckily it was still nice like last time.

I ordered the Pork Chop La Mian which used to be one of my favourites, & was excited that we could choose the type of noodles we want now. So I asked for the "dao xiao mian" (刀削面). When my food finally came, they gave me the wrong type of noodles & so I was told to wait for the chef to re-cook, but I could "eat the pork chop 1st". By the time the correct noodles was served my pork chop had already turned cold & harden.
What's more my pork chop serving was a miserable plate of 3 thin slices of pork. But we saw the customers next to us with the same food but big generous portion of the pork chop.
My noodles were oso a bit tough & not as Q or chewy as I imagined.

We also ordered the Shandong Pancake to share ($2.80++), which is actually like Roti Prata, but with spring onion diced & mixed into the pancake. Nice & crispy! Good choice this time.


The standard of this restaurant seems to have dropped somewhat, or maybe it is inconsistent now, what more with slightly higher prices & smaller servings. I hope my next visit will be better!
