It is a well-known fact that Hong Kong has the best Dim Sum restaurants in the world. But hey, Singapore is not lagging far behind. Not when we have the Tung Lok chain of restaurants here.
Tung Lok Signatures offers a combination of signature dishes from the various restaurants under the Tung Lok Group. Specialties include its trademark Lobster and Grilled U.S. Kurobuta Pork.
Let me introduce you to Tung Lok Signatures Restaurant @ Vivocity which servesd impossibly delicious Dim Sum. The BEST that I’ve tasted here in Singapore. Not kidding.
An ala carte Dim Sum for Lunch for 2 persons costs approximately S$150.00 (inclusive of drinks/beer).
So, without further ado, let’s go on a virtual food tour of this rad eaterie…. Don’t drool ;-)

One of the things I really look forward to most is feasting on a delectable Dim Sum meal on weekends.
There are several great Dim Sum eateries in Singapore. But for today, I will be recommending the Mandarin Court Chinese Restaurant located on the 35th Floor of the newly-renovated iconic Mandarin Orchard Hotel.
The food here is tasty and delicious. And it’s really worth giving yourself a treat occasionally at this lovely restaurant with a sweeping view of Singapore. The service is also above average. The servers are all very friendly and efficient. I have no complains. It made dining here enjoyable! ;-)
Our Dim Sum (a la carte) meal for 2 persons came up to S$90.00! We only had 6 dishes of Dim Sum and 1 Fried Seafood Mee Sua (Noodles). See photos below. Yes, it is pricey. But the food is really good. So I am not complaining!
Food Rating: 4.5/5
Here are my all-time Dim Sum favorites:
For those with a huge appetite, I highly recommend that you choose the Restaurant’s Weekend Dim Sum Brunch Buffet priced at S$78.00++/pax. You’d be spoilt for choices with 120 Dim Sum items to choose from!
