    It's the first hong kong cafe that i visited in Singapore. Overall verdit, not tat satisfying.

    Didn't really try the noodles etc. at marina square. Only had kaya toast, poluo bun and black sesame paste. They all not really fantastic but the kaya toast is alright for it's price. Quantity for the kaya toast shocked me, too much for the price. (I've high expectation for kaya toast) I like the fact that there's pineapple in the poluo bun but i dislike the taste of the butter, it affected the overall taste of the bun. Black Sesame Paste, yet another disappointment it tasted TOO instant. Seriously, the food loft in marina square serve a better paste then them.

    the environment is nice and service staff are ok too. not excellent service but ok on average. the dessert seems nice though n big in portion. would try if i pass by again, but wont go down specially for it.

      Decor was simple and they had nice looking circular booths, which could seat up to 4 people. Got a seat pretty fast and we proceeded to order a Macau style cheese baked rice with pork chop, chicken porridge and red bean snow ice(or something like that).Our food came within 10 mins and we were quite pleased with the presentation. The food actually looked good. However, imagine our disappointment when the porridge tasted bland and the portion was pathetic. I'm sure the $2.50 porridge at the hawker centre outside my house tasted better then that and with a bigger portion to boot. The baked rice was cold on the inside and hot on the outside (the cheese). The rice was drenched in oil(I could actually see the layer of oil!). The saving grace was the red bean snow ice which was actually an oversized ice kachang, but with just red bean, grass jelly and lots of condensed milk in it. I found it quite ok, probably due to the fact that I kinda like ice kachang.

      Damage was $25.55/- which I feel is hardly worth it. One of the worst places I've eaten so far. Service is hardly existent as well. Will not be going back EVER! One other thing to note. They charge 40 cents for their iced water (refillable) and they have this practice of rounding up the bill to the nearest 5 cents.

        Wow, so many bad reviews about Xin Wang.

        Overall I think this place is alright. I guess you need to know how to choose your dishes. Don't waste your money on luncheon meat, eggs or instant noodle dishes. I thought that the baked rice was pretty worth it. Delicious as well. The diced pork cubes went really well with the cheese.

        Another item to rave about would be the Puo Luo Bao (Pineapple Buns). Served warm, the slice of butter melted to perfection. Absolutely delightful. However I find the thick french toast too oily...

        Ordered dim sum as well - har gao and siew mai. Ingredients were pretty fresh. Prawns in the har gao was bouncy and crunchy.
