    Swee Choon restaurant has attracted many followings including expatriates and locals. Indeed, there is always a long queue in front of the restaurant. It has also been highlighted and highly promoted by the media including TV, newspapers and magazines.

    We have ordered some dim sum items to try out whether the quality is as good as those raved by bloggers.

    Crispy Egg Plant with Pork Floss ( $4.50 ) - The batter coating the egg plant was not crispy although points must be given for the right texture of the egg plant. The pork floss was not as tasty nor flavourful.

    Beancurd Prawn Roll ( $3.00 - 2pcs ) - The beancurd skin was fried cripsy with prawns tasting fresh and succulent.

    Yam Fritter ( $2.20 - 2 pcs ) - This was one of the best that we have tasted as the yam paste was fried to perfection. Small bits of the yam can be tasted on each bite.

    Swee Choon Mee Suah Kueh ( $2.40 - 2 pcs ) - One of their in-house recommendation. Nothing great except that the exterior skin was deep fried to make it crispy but retained the soft texture of mee suah internally.

    Chicken Claw ( $3.00 ) - Very soggy and not enough of marinate. Quite bony and does not taste yummy at all.

    Overall, we felt that it is not worth the queue unless you are craving for late night supper as the restaurant opens from 6.00pm to 4am daily except close on Tuesday. Plenty of service staff who are attentive and fast in clearing tables.

      I have been always hearing from my friend that Swee Choon is one of the best place with the best dim sum that i die die must try. However, i personally feel that it has been overrated. As in i made a review about Bao Today and comparing one of their signature dim sum, "steamed custard buns" i think Bao Today offered a better custard buns. I am not sure is it because of the crowds that makes the standard drop.

      Moreover, it depends on each and individual definitely. Different people has different taste bud. This is just my preference towards Swee Choon. I heard that it was so good that i thought the food will make go "woahh" but after i have personally try the Dim Sum, i felt it was just okay.

      Had a bit of supper at this tim sum restaurant along Jalan Besar the other day. If some of you can recall, this restaurant used to have its own commercial on TV but not sure if its still available now.

      Anyway, I ordered one basket of Chicken feet, one Chicken glutinous rice, one plate of char siew pastry and one fried wanton. Sad to say, though this place had been around for many years, the standard simply is unacceptable. Firstly, the quantity given is simply pathetic and the food didn't come piping hot as it should be. The taste of the food ain't that great either. Worse, the price is quite unreasonable as well. As compared to the Mong Kok Tim Sum at Geylang, which i wrote a review on previously, the difference is so vast and I definitely wnt go back to this Swee Choon again.
