    Kia Hiang is featured in MakanSutra and had quite some good reviews over the internet. So, when I was looking to pick a place for my colleague's farewell dinner, I chose this place with expectations.

    Booked a table for 8 at their Kim Tian branch yesterday night. Here are my reviews of the place :

    Location Quite near to Tiong Bahru Plaza, apparently, many of my colleagues had went there before and had so we didnt had a hard time getting to the place.

    Decor/Layout The restaurant looks more like a storeroom than a restaurant with boxes, chairs stacked up at the corner and whole place looks rather neglected. As they were busy making mooncakes for the festival, mooncake boxes can be seen laying around at the corner of the restaurant. It was a painful sight to see.

    Food We took the Super Value Ala-Carte Set at $29.80 for each pax and for the group of 8, we get to order 10 dishes off the menu and ordered: 1. Shark's Fin (didnt try, can't comment) 2. Fried Prawns in Mango Cream ( this was crispy and not overly sweet) 3. Garoupa Fillet with Wasabi (Normal, fish was rather hard due to being fried) 4. Claypot Chicken (This is their speciality, didnt dissapoint - chicken was tender and gravy was great!) 5.Suckling Pig Platter (Normal average Suckling pig, Roasted Duck and Braised Chicken) 6. Peking Duck ( not great, Egg crepe was a little too thick and skin was a little dry. Duck meat was later cooked in Black Pepper and was very hard to chew) 7. Crispy Soft Shell Crab with Oatmeal (Great at the beginning but gets tired of it towards the end) 8. Gui Fei Beancurd (Another speciality-Was soft and Mushroom which goes along was also not too chewy) 9. Wolfberries with Kailan (Normal, Kailan was abit bitter) 10. Dessert- Yam Paste (not a fan of Yam, so didnt really enjoy it. It was not smooth enough)

    I heard my colleagues saying that the standard has dropped. But they commented that their Dim Sum is worth a try. So if you're looking for somewhere for your Cantonese-fix, you might like to try the branch at International Plaza instead, maybe they'll be better, in terms of food and decor.
