Anyway, heard that Peach Gardens was awesome, so decided to give it a shot, since the flagship branch is near our place. To quote from its website, simply apt, "a culinary sanctuary where connoisseurs of traditional Cantonese cuisine can gather in celebration of exquisite dining and fine living".

While waiting, we were served a platter of Prawn Crackers - the Chinese equivalanet of Amuse Bouche aka bread basket one gets before the meals were served.

We started off with some light dimsum items like Custard Buns - warm, sweet custard oozing out of smooth buns. Loved them.

The Crab-Roe Siew Mai were fresh and scrumptious as well, with tender minced pork within the yellow silken dumpling skins.

Our Peking Duck Wrapped in Crepes came next. I especially loved this dish because of the crispiness of the delicious duck skin within, coupled with the soft, sweet, slightly-sandy texture of the crepe skins .. the blend is just amazing.

Due to the festive season, the company receives many boxes of mooncakes from vendors. One of the boxes of mooncakes from Peach Garden restaurant. Peach Garden is a restaurant under the Select chain of eateries.The mooncake tastes abit too sweet for me. I like the crunchy texture of the melon seeds in the lotus paste. The egg yolk is tended to found at one end of the mooncake, which shows the skills of the chef is still not very good.

Peach Garden has relatively good dim sum from my previous dining experiences. I've tried a few of their dim sum before, like their ribs, glutinous rice with chicken, etc. This time, I particularly liked their pan fried carrot cake - pan fried till crispy on the outside, and there were many dried shrimps added within the carrot cake, wasn't too oily as well.

As part of the mother day celebration, me and my family members decided to eat dim sum at peach garden.

Some of the dim sum that we ordered includes the bo luo bun, century egg porridge, deep fried yam and many more. Firstly, their bo luo bao is nicely made with a shiny golden brown colour. The top crust is slight sweet and has a slight crispy texture. As for the fillings wise, it consist of the char siew which is well marinate and has a soft and tender texture. Next the century egg porridge has a nice presentation with the generous amount of the crackers and spring onion as the garnish. As for the taste wise, it is not too overcooked, with a smooth texture. Lastly will be the deep fried yam which has a nice golden brown colour with a very crispy texture. The fillings wise is well seasoned and goes well with the outer layer.

While you're at Peach Garden, do try out their soup dumplings and shrimp dumplings. They look like massive pockets of stuffing in savoury soup. Skip the rice rolls though, they weren't very nice.

Also, wait for the ice cream bells! they have cute bite sized ice cream sandwiches for that much needed sweet treat to end of your meal.

Sliced steam fish and fungus is a really light and tasteful dish. Love the well steamed fish that is not overcooked and is cooked to perfection. The steamed fish goes really well with the black fungus and the taste of the dish is really great. The dish goes well with a bowl of white rice as this dish as sauces to it so the gravy of the dish can coat the white rice making your meal more tasty.

P.S. Parking is a hazard on weekends.

Overall, food is decent however the demand don't meet the supply - I didn't get to have my fruit because it is empty by the time I wanted mine.

The main problem I had was that the dim sum were just so very lackluster, and generally ho-hum. I'd expected more, as I'd really good meals at their CBD and Sichuan branches.They were below par with the stuff served at the mass marketed Crystal Jade Kitchen branches, which have lower price points than Peach Garden. I just felt that you just don't get your money's worth here.

We had:

1) Siew Mai Steamed Pork Dumpling ($4.20): very strong "porky" smell and taste, which meant the pork wasn't sparkling fresh.

2) Steamed Scallop and Prawn Dumpling ($4.20): this fared better in comparison (which isn't saying much). The dumpling skin was thin and chewy, and seafood was reasonably fresh but admittedly not particularly sweet.We had to dip this in a bit of soy because it was lacking in flavour

3) Steamed Radish and Mushroom Rice Roll ($3.90): probably the best dish, which isn't saying much either, but this is the one dish that actually stood out. The chives-laced rice roll skin was thin and chewy, and stuffed generously with sweet and crunchy radish strips and juicy mushrooms. A most pleasant vegetarian rice roll

4) Rice Roll with BBQ Pork ($4.30) - quite commendable. Translucent and thin chewy skin, plentiful sweetly charred diced char siew and delicate soy made for a well done dish

5) Pan-fried Carrot Cake ($3.60): also lackluster. This was served tepid so it just tasted like cold mush, which was most unfortunate. It would have been passable if it was freshly fried, or reheated

My favourite is the siew mai with soft thin skin packed with fresh pork and prawns. The char siew bun was also very good with is soft fluffy skin and the sweet honey char siew fillings.

Personally, I don't have much choices when it comes to Tim Sum. I don't like pork so many of the items will not be on my list. We ordered the usual fried prawn dumpling, seaweed prawn roll, the steam prawn dumpling. In this review, I especially like to recommend the desserts. They seem to have a new menu for desserts, more interesting. As a continuation of my crave for almond paste, I ordered this interesting almond paste in coconut.

As a continuation of my crave for almond paste, I ordered this interesting almond paste in coconut. Initially, I thought the coconut was added into the paste but I was surprised to see that the paste was served in the coconut instead. Very special and delicious. The 'meat' of the coconut was fresh too.

THe jelly was sweet, the ice cream was normal and the cocktail, normal too. It made quite a good combination and I am glad I chose that rather than choosing other desserts like Mango Pudding. This is something unique and it wouldn't be found in many other places.

I was enticed by the prospect of stuffing myself with dim sum for tea so headed down to Peach Garden @ Thomson one Sunday afternoon. The last time I had dim sum at Peach Garden, the fare was decent and I was under the impression that if food quality remained consistent, this dim sum buffet could be well worth the money.

Ambience

The place has a typical Chinese restaurant setting and looks deceptively small from the outside. The interior however, can seat probably in excess of a hundred pax. Though the place was packed to the rafters with people, I appreciate the fact that tables are spaced adequately apart, which makes for more privacy.

Variety

There is a "live" station where service staff dish out carrot cake, fried chicken, ice cream and the likes. Usual suspects like porridge, fruits and desserts can also be found at the station. Dim sum trolleys are pushed around periodically and you merely have to inform the wait staff of the dishes you desire. I counted less then 20 different dim sum varieties off the trolley, which include both steamed and fried variants. I found it quite a pity that Peach Garden didn't include their much loved (by me) custard bun in the buffet lineup.

Quality

Personally, I thought that the quality was average at best. The best dishes were probably the Har Gao and the Walls ice cream served up between 2 wafer biscuits. Everything else either tasted out of sorts or was too oily. We threw in the towel after only about half an hour when the whole buffet was suppose to last for two. I guess that says a lot doesn't it

Service

Service was quite acceptably decent. No big boo boos or anything and our tea got refilled quite constantly.

Value for money


The buffet is not expensive per se but factor in the quality and I'm better off having ala carte elsewhere. This deal is only good if quality isn't of the utmost priority and you just wish to gorge yourself silly.

Had dinner at the Peach Garden. We ordered the duck noodles but the duck was a little on the dry. The beef tenderloin we ordered was a pleasant surprise! It is tender and juicy, it had the melt-in-your-mouth sensation. The black pepper sauce also helped to enhance the taste of the dish. It is easily the best item we had that night at Peach Garden. Their dim sum is not bad too!
