I had nice Dim Sum in Arteastiq (I think that's how it's spelt) in Millenia Walk the other day, they also do some lovely teas!

No offence but puh-lease, it is overrated and expensive. The so-called signature xiao long pao is nothing compared to the street version I've had outside of those shiny sparkling outlets.

DTF isn't even HK, it is Taiwanese heh.

126 Eating House on Sims Ave and Geylang Lorong 15 is the best I've had here. A HK-Chinese friend took me there and said it's the best he's found also. And it is open 24 hours.

Royal china @ raffles hotel.

In terms of variety, its average but they have pretty much all the must haves for a dim sum meal.

Quality dim sum at a reasonable price.

Enjoy!

The Chinese custard bun and radish pastry are my favorite dim sum, love the custard bun from Taste Paradise and radish pastry from Crystal Jade.

Why don't you post your recommendations on the open forum so all can enjoy? Or do you have a financial interest in the ones you are recommending? We like recommendations, we don't like advertising, there IS a big difference. When we get people who only want to recommend offline, we tend to suspect the worst and lock accounts.

I went to Din Tai Fung and being vegetarian I found the choices very limited. All seafood dumplings are mixed with pork...
