The restaurant is located at level 1U (or second level) of the St. Regis Singapore hotel. The St. Regis Singapore is renowned as one of the premier 5 star hotels in the city. The restaurant is known for its exquisite yet hearty Cantonese fine-dining, as well as, its end high prices for its food. The place is quite grandly decorated in light colour with comfy sofa or arm chair seats, quite different from the usual red coloured Chinese restaurants.

The place is quite grandly decorated in light colour with comfy sofa or arm chair seats, quite different from the usual red coloured Chinese restaurants. Although we are early for our reservation, we are led to our table straight away. Good service is providing baby chair and kid friendly utensils (including a cup of plain water with straw) for little JJ. Dim Sum Combination
We start with a plate of Dim Sum Combination. The Oven-Baked Barbeque 'Char Siew' Pastry is soft and butter, as well as, not too sweet for its filling. The Steamed Teochew Style Dumpling with Pork and Peanuts has flavourful and crunchy peanuts. The Steamed Crystal Shrimp Dumpling 'Har Kao' and Deep-Fried Vegetarian Spring Roll also taste nice but do not make much of an impression. Also experience a bit of hiccup when serving the dish, as the upright spring rolls being toppled down. Pan-Fried Kurobuta Pork with Black Pepper Sauce
The black pepper sauce is very well made, peppery but not too spicy. The kurobuta pork is very tender with a melt in the mouth taste. Hand-pulled Noodles in XO Sauce, with 'Sui Jiao' Shrimp Dumplings Soup
The noodles is much smoother and finer than the usual hand-pulled noodles. With just XO sauce, it is very tasty. The shrimp dumpling on the other hand is too small to be one. It is more like a wanton in size. It tastes quite crunchy with the fresh shrimp in it. Homemade Red Bean Paste with Lotus, with Steamed Salted Egg Yolk Bun
Smooth tasting red bean paste with a hint of orange peel taste. The lotus seed is soft and sweet on its own. Although the salted egg yolk bun looks small, but it is full of lava looking filling. The filling tastes just alright smooth and not too sweet.
For Restaurant Week set lunch and tea for 3 persons, the total amount is $155.40. Overall the food is good, as well as, good service (except for the hiccup). But for such high price, it is not a place which I can come often.
