    Default Dim Sum places in Chinatown area

    Hi guys... i'm not very familiar with Singapore....so...

    are there any good dim sum places in the Chinatown Area? Tanjong Pagar, Maxwell, Ann Siang Hill can also be considered.

    must have:

    good ambience
    nice decor
    private rooms (not a must but preferably)

    Thanks!

    *randomers... no rubbish here!

    Whatever you do,

    DON'T go to YumCha in Chinatown, unless you want to be scolded by your lunch-kakis.

    Hi ricohflex, thx for visiting my blog.

    Anyway, a recent visit found that yixinyuan had raised their price quite a bit, but still being one of the more affordable options in the area. If you are looking for ambience and price is less a concern, you can consider Pavilion Restaurant at Craig Road. It's just 5 min from Tanjong Pagar MRT.

    You can view their menu here.

    I wanted to intro some good places but seeing as to how we randomers are obviously being marginalized, I hope you never find it!!!

    Here's a list of places I would've recommended if you did not piss me off:

    Hi Kei. You can try Yan Palace Restaurant at Chinatown for their Dim Sum.

    It is advisable to make reservation before going down. Especially during weekends.
