Combination Platter - Fish Ngoh Hiang, Fish Fingers, Scramble Egg, Spring Roll & Jelly Fishw/Shredded Chicken! Everything taste pretty much normal, except for the Jelly fish which we all feel it has got to be weirdest combination of all cos it's paired with shredded chicken & the sauce taste like a combination of chicken rice chili & dark soy sauce

The Food
I ordered the Pi Pa Duck, Mandarin Stewed Chicken and Beancurd with Fish Maw, Sea Cucumber and Vegetables.
The duck skin is very crispy and the meat is tender on the inside. However, I find that the accompanying sauce was overly sweet hence does not go really well with the duck maybe because the duck itself has a strong flavour.
Next will be the Mandarin Stewed Chicken served with tau kee and black fungus which is my all time favourite. The chicken is very delicious as is stewed till it's nice and soft and has absorbed the essence of the sauce which keep me having mouth after mouth.
Lastly will be the Beancurd served with Fish Maw, Sea Cucumber and Vegetables. The silky and smooth Beancurd is also very nice and tasty and more importantly, it goes well with the braised sauce that makes the dish fantastic!

The Price
Reasonably priced at $80++ for the whole bill

Overall
I find that their food is pretty decent and the restaurant has lots of hidden "treasures" that I have yet to try out!

Service at Lai Wah Restaurant is excellent. Staff are well trained for service, and it shows in the small details. When we requested to change a spoon, the waitress who brought the new spoon handed it to us, then waited a short while when we glanced at it to inspect for stains. Only when we placed it down, then she excused herself. Drink cups are regularly kept filled, and food is served quite fast. Cleanup and turning over of tables is done within 5 minutes or less. Thumbs up as well for the complimentary desserts!

The Crispy Squid With Salted Egg Yolk has a rather bland presentation, but it's only when you put it in your mouth... Ummm! The combination of crispy, savoury saltiness and the freshness of the squid made this a winner!

A traditional Cantonese dish invented by this very restaurant in Singapore, the Yam Basket With Prawns And Cashew Nuts has spawned numerous imitators. The crisp and well fried yam basket is warm and savoury, and the mixture within of deshelled prawns, cashew nuts, bell peppers, mushrooms and onions is fresh and simple, yet so flavourful.

Lai Wah.

The restaurant that prides itself on serving the first yusheng in 1964.

One of the four heavenly kings.

We were here for ah kong's birthday celebrations.

Where better to bring the family than to an old school style Cantonese restaurant.

Okay ignore the fact that none of us are Cantonese in roots.

But hey, you gotta admit.

This dish was impressive to say in the least.

Red garoupa done two ways.

At $50, this was a scary investment if it turned out a disaster.

But nope. It was good.

I much preferred the steamed rolls than the fried fish though.

The ambience within is a blast from the past even after renovation works.

Nestled below the HDB blocks, this was inviting enough for a daily affair.

Lai Wah Restaurant offers tasty home cooking. It has quite a long history, and definitely is one of those restaurant that reminds you of childood memory.

The tofu itself is a blend of tofu and fish paste, that's why the texture is firmer than usual tofu, but has a better seafood flavour too!

Lai Wah Restaurant is a food institution in Singapore. Located at Block 44 Bendemeer Road, this Chinese restaurant is an all time favourite with the elderly. The place serves wonderful Chinese cuisine - Cantonese style.

Dinner once again at the nostalgic Cantonese restaurant - Lai Wah. Dinner here the last time round was decent, leaning greatly towards the comfort food portion rather than the culinary excellence portion. So I really didn't expect much this time round.

Dinner once again at the nostalgic Cantonese restaurant - Lai Wah. Dinner here the last time round was decent, leaning greatly towards the comfort food portion rather than the culinary excellence portion. So I really didn't expect much this time round.

The Beansprouts with Salted Fish was extremely normal. I mean how fantastic can beansprouts and salted fish get The beansprouts weren't overcooked and the salted fish didn't come across as too salty, which was fine by me.

The White Chicken with Vegetables & Ham used to be a common sight at wedding dinners, but has now gone the way of the Dodo. The meat was tender but was a little too strong on the fowl taste for me. A very decent dish nevertheless.

Lai Wah's rendition of the Gu Lu Rou was above average with the exterior crispy and carrying a slightly charred aftertaste. Texture wise was pretty acceptable with the meat and batter ratio evenly balanced out.

The yam basket was the star of the evening with the exterior crispy and the interior smooth and silky. Ingredients were aplenty, which made for a more enjoyable experience. However, do take note that this dish is best eaten hot/warm as the yam hardens slightly when cold, making it a little gross.

A filling and decent dinner for 5 pax cost about $70, inclusive of drinks and rice. Fairly reasonable in my opinion but service speed really needs to buck up. We waited for about 30 mins for our food.

It was crispy on the outside as the chef had fried it in hot oil before serving it. But the meat inside was moist and tender. Really nice. Must try.

This is really one restaurant that has a long history. I remembered that I had been there before when I was still very young. Till now, the restaurant is still there. Stepping into the restaurant will bring you back to the 70s because of the decor of the restaurant. They have many signature dishes and I would highly recommend the crispy squids with salted egg yolk.

The squids were nicely fried but not overcooked so that you can still have the crunchy texture when you chew on it. The salted egg wolk blended with the squids so well that it was heavenly. You never want to stop. Other dishes were also very nice. Yummy.
