Outside this restaurant, there are chairs for customers to sit while waiting for the restaurant to open and also for customers to wait for their turn to enter the restaurant, and yes, there is really such a need.
After reading online that this restaurant is always crowded, I decided to reach before it opens. When I reached there, there were only two customers sitting on the chairs provided and my mom and I quickly grabbed a sit on two other chairs provided. Not long after we reached there, more and more customers started to join in the queue, without stopping since then.
While waiting for the restaurant to start its business, we were give some menus and an order paper to tick the dishes we want. For a first timer of this restaurant, choosing of what dishes to order can be sort of 'hard to made' decisions, as all the pictures of dishes look so tempting and apart from a wide variety of dimsums, there are quite a number of other dishes too. However, since my mom and I were only craving for dim sims, we decided to order purely dim sums.
When the restaurant finally opened, all the customers rushed in to ensure that they can get indoor seats, and the sequence of arrival does not seem to matter at all in this case. Fortunately, my mom and I managed to get our indoor seats, which did justice.
One of the main selling point of this restaurant is that it serves dim sum in smaller portions compared to other dim sum restaurants, thus, customers will be able to order more varieties. The prices are reasonable and taste of food are not bad too.
Although there are only two of us, but we ordered quite a number of dim sum dishes, in the end, there are leftovers and it is good that there provide those take away boxes for customers to take away their leftovers.
Out of all the dim sum dishes my mom and I ordered, there were some hit and miss.
The ones that managed to leave an impression in us are: char siew pau, portuguese egg tart, prawn and banana fritters, BBQ pork pastry, xiao long pau and sichuan chilli oil wanton.
The dish that left a really bad impression in us is: pan fried spring onion bread (thick bread with minimal weird tasting spring onion fillings).
Other dim sum dishes tried are not too bad but nothing special too.
