Founded in 2005, Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe is possibly the most successful brand of Hong Kong style 'cha chaan teng' / tea-house in Singapore. Known for opening till the wee hours of the morning in popular youth hangouts and nightspots, Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe is also popular for their snow ice desserts, thick toasts, and simple stir-fried noodles or rice dishes.

Ambience at Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe is clean, modern, and functional, but with little decor. Plush cushioned booths and simple wooden furniture line the spot-lit dining area, alternating shadows and light playing across the coloured walls. Tables are closely packed, which means the place is noisy and buzzing most of the time. The biggest draw for them is their longer than usual opening hours, suitable for late suppers or early breakfasts.

Service at Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe is mostly decent, with staff being polite, and quick to attend to diners. As expected, the more senior staff tend to demonstrate better service levels, showing guests more attention. Requests are quickly fulfilled, as are orders, so expect short waiting times of within 5 - 10 minutes, even during peak periods. I also note that staff quickly clear empty / dirty tables, but in their haste, they only do a quick wipe of the tables, rather than a proper cleaning.

Food at Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe is focused on mostly Hong Kong cuisine, Chinese Cantonese cuisine, and snacks. Dishes are mostly simple and quick to prepare, but this also means not as good value for money compared to other restaurants. Fortunately, portions are large, and prices are still wallet-friendly, good enough for everyday casual dining. Most dishes are tasty to a passable standard, you just have to know what to order here!

Loved the comforting Wanton Dumplings Soup (SGD $5.90), with its light, delicate soup / broth that has a slight sweetness. The large, meaty wanton dumplings are tightly packed in a medium-thick skin, with a generous amount of fresh prawns / shrimp, and minced pork, having a good savoury sweet flavour. Excellent!

The Peanut Butter N Condensed Milk Thick Toast (SGD $4.90) was excellent! The thick toast has a crisp exterior which crunches softly, while the interior remains soft and fluffy! A generous spread of sticky sweet nutty peanut butter, and a dressing of sweet condensed milk, make this breakfast / snack incredibly addictive! I feel like a little kid getting a treat with this, due in part to the peanut butter which sticks like, everywhere. Highly recommended!

The best thing about the Fermented Pork Chop Dry Curry Ramen (SGD $10.90) is their crisp, savoury salty pork chop. Big on flavour, the pork chop has a soft crunch when bit, followed by the smooth, tender meat with a thin silver of fat. The thin egg noodles tossed in a thick, savoury spicy curry gravy (that has no fiery heat), and the crunchy stalk of fresh bok choy / Chinese cabbage complete the plate. Good!

I will always come to Xin Wang Cafe to enjoy a Hong Kong French Toast because there is no other similar kinds on Singapore. Therefore it is my only choice and it tasted always so good! French toast bread is thick and fluffery soft. It like the honey that is drizzled on top of the French toast and the butter to make it taste better.. I like the butter that is already lightly soaked in the bread and match it with honey. I requested for extra honey and gave without extra charges.

Xin wang hk cafe serves a wide variety of food such as dim sum, snacks, chinese and western cuisine. I ordered a spaghetti with chicken chop @$12.90. It is one of the recommended item in the menu. The portion is quite big. The spaghetti is cream based and it is cooked perfectly. Although i feel the cream sauce is quite overwhelming, its quite nice! The chicken is grilled to perfection, well marinated and flavourful.

Special mention to the service staff and kitchen staff - my friend and I couldn't finish this massive dessert in time as we were rushing for a movie, so we shamelessly asked for a takeaway for about 70% of what's left. Instead of refusing us (which would have been perfectly understandable), the manager agreed without flinching and with a smile too! In the end, they packed it into two tall bubble-tea cups with no extra charges at all. It turned out to be really icy cold and delicious, much better than GC's milk tea and with all the syrup and blended ice too.

Thumbs up and I'm recommending this to my friends now! But don't eat this when you are in a rush... & share it with three or more friends.

Fish Fillet Baked Rice - $10.90. Baked rice with fish fillet and cheesy tomato sauce. Even though it contained fish, there was no fishy smell. It was so fulfilling. Go for this menu if you are a cheese lover like me haha.

Overall I had a nice lunch here. Food was awesome, service was also good. The staffs were friendly and polite. Will gladly be back.

so the verdict on this? not unless it's for a convenient supper.this was a nightmare. we had a shrimp dumpling and a peanut mochi order. when the peanut mochi came, it wasn't the easiest for the skewers to be pierced into the mochi. of course grounded peanut and sugar made it at least a little edible.but the shrimp dumplings.you can see that they are obviously white parcels. not the usual translucent skin you'd get.and the one i had, was with a shrimp that was still cold in the middle. honestly?

Made up with good quality Black Sesame, the soup was smooth and savory. Never thought such a simple old folk’s dessert was so wonderful, they said Black Sesame was supposed to be good for black hair. To be frank, I don’t really care about it, I just knew that it was a nice size and taste. I finished up the whole and contented in sense. Only $3.90 before GST and Service Charge, it was still affordable to me.

Another dessert ordered by my friend, it was too heavy to have it as supper. The playful pearl sago were hard to scoop and chewy. The coconut’s fragrance was rich with a mushy thick soup, a bit sweet and pure white silky. It was fattening in fact, but who cares? Price at $7.90, it served hot in a real Coconut Shell. We had our great supper time there, because of its cozy environment.

The food came within 10mins of ordering. I had the bamboo rice ($8.90) with chicken, sausage and vegetables. It was rather unique as it came in a real bamboo container. There was really a lot of rice, I think it’s almost impossible to finish the rice unless you’re quite a big eater. It's better to use the plate to eat as it's quite hard to eat from the container itself without your food spilling at the side. I also ordered the hot yuan yang ($3.20) as the place was cold and I needed something hot to warm me up! It tasted just nice, not too sweet or sticky for my liking.

My friends and I ordered this Mango Snow Ice ($6.90) to share as we saw a lot of people eating it. It was really tall and huge for $6.90. The mango ice cream was great!! The dessert also had jellies, which was at the bottom of the mountain of ice, be careful not to topple the ice cream as you're digging at the bottom. But we didn’t finish it in the end, there’s just too much ice.

We ordered the mango shaved ice as it is really HUGE and TALL! It was shared among 2 of my friends and me. There is also a mango ice cream at the top. I just find that there is too much ice and once you haven eaten the outer layer, there isnt any taste for it anymore. It is just plain ice.

Unfortunately, this tasted half raw which was unlike what I usually ate. The prawns used were not fresh too.

I also ordered some other dim sum and I find that they tasted mediocre. Nothing worth mentioning.

Not too sure if I will go back for their dim sum again.

Xin wang hong kong cafe is always a rather safe choice to have a simple meal, although the food is not fantastic, it's always very crowded. I settled for the sliced fish mui fan for around $9.90. Portion was alright, looks like a huge bowl but I managed to finish most of it; the gravy went well with rice, and I particularly liked the pork floss scattered on top. Fish wasn't that fresh though.

Reservation: Not needed, just wait.

We tried the mango dessert, not too bad, slightly sweet. Their ice milk tea was not too thick, just nice for me. Most of their cool drinks come in metal mugs, which is kinda unique. It keeps the drink cold for a long time.

Tried their muachee which is tasty and the peanut butter + condensed milk thick toast here. The toast really lives up to its name, cos it's really thick (about the size of 4 slices of NTUC bread)! After being toasted, the bread was warm and the crust slightly crispy, which we liked.

Food / Beverage: Hong Kong style cafe, tried the pineapple "Poh Loh Pau" and their thick toast with coffee and tea. Tea was excellent, so was their coffee. Pineapple in bread bun was an experience and memorable. Thick toast was OK.

One thing good about Xin Wang is that they closed at very late night hours and thus provide a place for night owls to have their supper. Ordered something light – luncheon meat with egg sandwich after a night movie and was feeling a little hungry. The sandwich came with 3 layer of white toast, in between there’s luncheon meat and egg with tomatoes and cucumber. Not fantastic yet it was filing enough for me. Down with their signature HK milk tea to end the night feeling satisfied.
