We booked for 1:00pm but some of the friends came 30 minutes late. We didn't order right away because the coupon we got had a time limit of 2.5 hrs. Unfortunately, the server informed us that it's just 2hrs. Tsk, tsk. Robbed of precious 30 minutes!! :(
After about 15 minutes, the husband and I started ordering like crazy. Thinking it's ok to order several items since it might take about 20 minutes before the food gets delivered, just in time for the rest of the group to arrive.
To be honest, the photos I'm posting here are not even half of what we had. I'm just a tad shy to post everything! :))
Some of the items we got were:
- 2 dishes of pasta melts (which could feed 2-3 people)
- A fried chicken wing
- 2 dishes of vegetables in light sauces
- 5 servings of hakaw (just because it's limited to one serving per customer)
- 3 servings of siew mai
The mixed meat platter was really good. The duck, roast pork and chicken were cooked to perfection and tasted great. We actually ordered several plates of the roast pork. :) How many? Don't ask.

Just ordered this once. Also the other vegetable dishes such as the greens and the eggplant in thick black sauce. No dish stood out. Sorry. :|

I accidentally ordered a cold chicken feet dish. Thinking the other girls in the group liked eating chicken feet, I ordered about two dishes but unfortunately, they were like me, not interested at all! So the husband ended up eating these. :))
The bolo bun was really really nice. Even compared to Crystal Jade's, it's wonderfully made. The crust on the top doesn't crumble easily and it was served with butter in the middle which made me extra special.

By the time we finished eating, I couldn't move much. My tummy hurt. :)) It was a good experience but
with regards to the quality of food, I would say, it's just okay. The hakaw, bolo bun and roasted meat platter were wonderful but the rest were just blah. Some servers couldn't speak or understand English so we had a hard time communicating. Like when one of the girls ordered for a Coke, it took 2 or 3 servers to understand and gave the drink after 30 minutes. That bad, huh?
I think I want to go to Yum Cha's high tea dimsum buffet next time! :D
