You can certainly better dim sum places elsewhere!

We came across an ad on this restaurant on a coupon book "Money Saver" sent to our house. There was a color ad of the restaurant with 2 little cut-out coupons. One of the coupons says $5 off dimsum with purchase of $25. We thought we should give it a try and I cut out the entire ad from the coupon book.
We ordered some dim sum dishes and it's ok, nothing fantastic but the waitresses were very aggressive. When we asked them about a certain dim sum dish, they would just take it out of the cart and place it on our table and immediately note on the order card. When we told them that we decided not to have that, they will immediately push us to try it saying that it's very good. We gave in and decide to try it. Little did we know, all the waitresses does this! We felt uncomfortable and told them to take it away when they try to be too pushy and they don't like it! You can basically see their reaction when you refused them.
When it's time to pay, we took out the coupon to get the discount. You wouldn't believe this, they told us that the coupon is not valid! It's a scam!! We were totally shocked and asked them how can it be possible!? Eventhough we show them the entire ad, the manager still insist that it's a scam. We couldn't believe it, our total bill was $57 before tips and they couldn't even give us a $5 discount and claim that it's a scam???? Who in the world would pay for an ad and scam them!
Don't come here unless you want to get your pressure up!! With pushy waitresses and a dishonest manager/boss who doesn't honour their own advertisement, forget it, there are better places for dimsum with more reasonable prices!

Thought of having some roti prata this evening when I remembered we passed by this place before but have never tried it. So we tried it today and guess what, they dont serve roti prata! Accordingly, the Chinese doesn't like the layers! So why call themselves the prata man! The so-called prata that they serve is like the Chinese pancake!
We wanted to order the satay but when we looked at the next table with the satay, they look dry so we decided not to try that. The Hainanese Chicken rice - the rice is undercooked and the chicken is cold! As for the tofu goreng, it's nicely fried but the sauce is meh! The last thing we ordered was the mee goreng and it tasted like puke! Sorry no offence but its gonna be my first and last time there.
Feel really bad for the Singaporeans though, to have their food represented this way by this restaurant! This is not the restaurant to go to if you want authentic Singapore or Malaysian food!

Push cart dim sum style. We ordered about 12 type of dim sum for the 5 of us. Just the regular stuff - har kow, rice flour roll, steamed buns, claypot rice, congee, bbq pastry and some desserts. All were good except for the claypot rice and my favourite is the deep fried taro. Worth coming back again and the restaurant is very spacious and the staff are friendly and attentive compare to other Chinese restaurants (if you know what I mean).
