    Overall service staff is polite & shop is very spacious . But the wanton mee is almost tasteless n most of the Tim Sum items are cold . I suppose the Tim Sum items even those in the display shelf are not hot becos of not having enough powerful spot light . The taste of their big pork Pao also loses out to Nam Kee .

    The Wanton Mee is a nice surprise. The carrot cakes however isn’t the normal dim sum carrot cakes that we get in the Hong Kong Dim Sum restaurant. The Chee Cheong Fun seems very factory as well with the ingredients simply added on top. You could probably order Wanton Chee Cheong Fun given how they prepare this.

    This place has been renovated and is more pleasant to dine in. Unfortunately, the standard of the pau seems to have dropped somewhat over the years. The quality of the wanton noodles is inconsistent too. The best dish now is perhaps chee cheong fun. Overall, this is a good place to chill out and have dim sum. However, if you are just looking to satisfy your taste buds, there are better dim sum restaurants in the neighbourhood.

    Old colonial looking retro restaurant. Love the throwback vibes even though traffic from main street could be loud at times. No air con but airy and spacious. Had guilin gao, found it great value for money !

    Curious about the recent reviews regarding the drop in standard, so I decided to see for myself.
    For the wanton mee, it actually it has improved. They now use a fattier cut for the char siew and I find the wonton now are tastier, tasting a bit like siew mai with prawns.
    However, the current cook dumps the green chillies together with the mee, adding a sour flavour where previously there was none.
    So ask for no green chillies or for it to be seperate, (and they give too much of it for that matter. ).
    Ho Kee Pau remains one of those wanton mees that you don’t want to eat on site but have it as a takeaway. The noodles need to soak up the broth to give it that Ho Kee Pau flavour.

    This local dim sum outlet at Geylang had a nice retro feel in black and white tiles and marble tables. Ordered carrot and yam cake, char siew CCF and chives dumplings with soya bean drink and kopi. Total of $14. Food was bland. Almost all of them are not hot at all. Char siew CCF was expensive and didn’t taste good. It was a disappointing breakfast!

    Unfortunately, this was not as good as our previous visits.

    We ordered the usual suspects – siew mai, har kow, cheong fun with char siu, fried wontons, black carrot cake, chicken feet, glutinous rice in lotus leaf and pork and century egg porridge.

    The deep fried wontons were good though definitely smaller, while the skins of the har kows and cheong fun were very thick and gooey. The congee was almost as thick as dried oatmeal, though there were quite a number of meatballs in there. The glutinous rice was a tad cold.

    The meal cost @$35.

    Great place to have breakfast or a break. Good variety of Dim Sum. Had a good time with a friend as we chat and had breakfast. Fast service except that it is no more as before where people serve you at your table. Nowadays, place your order at the counter, collect your food at the counter and self serve your meals to the table. Just like any fast food chain. Missed to usual practice of traditional servicing.

    Not at the most ideal location. Very limited parking space. The portion for each dish was too much. In general, it was pricey. The quality of the dim sum was average. The saving grace was the char siew bun. Will not go there again.

    The Hokkien Mee is gone. standard of the Pau has dropped, a lot of bun and little filling, but the taste is slightly above average. Carrot Cake is most of the time not available, Sunday Afternoon n Friday Night, neither had Carrot Cake or Soya Bean.

    Drinks are bland, the tea-based drinks are bitter and mostly water, while iced lemon tea is very concentrated.

    Some good food is the Chicken/Pork Congee and selected Dim Sum e.g. Siew Mai, Prawn Dumpling.

    This is a place you look for good non-halal Chinese food such as steam buns with fillings, Chinese dumplings which is usually consumed during the dragon boat festivals, Cantonese style congee with pork, chicken or century egg, plus many more.

    Nearest subway train station is Aljunied.

    The downside is that after the owner renovated the whole coffee shop into a café-like environment, they seal up all entrance openings with transparent plastic materials leaving only the main entrance BUT there is no aircon, just ceiling fans. This makes the place hot and stuffy making dine in experience uncomfortable even during evening time.

    One of the good paus & Tim Sum in Singapore not the best compare to hi-end restaurants or hotels.
    But for local markets like daily workers,house wifes,lunch crowds etc is one of the better ones.
    Freshly made & bake in front of you

    Far cry from their original standard. All the pau, dumplings and what not tastes factory made, left under a heating lamp for so long it’s stale and dehydrated.

    I love their char siew small pau. Packs enough punch with the texture of the skin not too overly thick but just nice so that the succulent stuffings don’t cause it to be gooey. Love the juicy insides. Downside….the price has gone up. Used to be $1

    A combination traditional coffee shop and cha lou style deco. The shop is located near Aljunied mrt station. Food was average. Their carrot cake was quite thick and almost double of a normal size carrot cake you get from dim sum. Place was pretty much self service. Shop opens quite early in the morning compare to normal dim sum place.

    LMK is salty, CCF is stiff and dry, coffee is machine made 3in1. Lacking options in the morning, no porridge no egg tarts.

    I had patronised this place a couple of years ago and had loved the food and ambience, though it used to be more run down. Over the years, it has renovated to look cleaner and organised while preserving the look of a coffeeshop in the sixties.
    However, the quality of the food has become to be very disappointing. The meat and century congee was too thick. Such that stirring the ingredients is difficult. The dim sum (chicken feet, siew mai, har gao) served weren’t warm. There was also little fresh ingredients in its har Gao and prawn dumplings. There are mainly made of flour mixture.
    This will most probably be the last time I’ll patronise this place.

    This eatery is very spacious and nicely furnished with old school marble round tables and wooden chairs. The staff were very polite too. Unfortunately, three out of five items that we wanted to order (ie. teh, porridge and egg tarts) were not available even though it was almost 9am. The chives dumplings were good while the beancurd skin rolls were too meaty and dry. Do note that the dim sums are not reheated.

    Not as impressive as before. Food is getting real oily and salty. Over all area, clean and organised. The century egg porridge is good.

    Pleasant air conditioned environment. Dim sum is decent, although quality is variable depending on what is ordered. Egg tarts were expensive for the portion size, lo mai kai was quite good, the cha siew bao had good cha siew but the bao dough was indifferent.

    The porridge’s too grainy to my liking. The egg tart is not at all nice. The chicken feet is alright but on the whole I don’t think that the dimsum is outstanding at all. Will not go back again. The portion for the price is good though.

    Pricy and so-so. You can pay lesser for same or better quality and pay more for restaurant quality. Franchising might have caused the downfall of this place

    I patronised Ho Kee Pau Geylang quite frequently where I usually take away paus for my family’s breakfast. Yesterday at noon, I had left my personal laptop at the cashier counter in a rush and did not realise it until 6pm. I called them and my call was received by a lady by the name of ‘Joey’. I want to commend on the remarkable customer service Joey had rendered. Initially, my laptop was not found at the shop but she assured me that if any of the staff had found it, she will surely give me a call in which she did today. You can imagine how relieved and happy I am. I want to express my gratitude to Joey and also to the staff who had reported the laptop to Joey. It is not just the food at Ho Kee Pau Geylang is delicious, even the staff is prided with honesty! With great appreciation, Janice Lim

    Not a restaurant but priced like one.

    Walked in to what looked like a restaurant and was served to a table with an order sheet.

    Marked my orders and waved for the wait staff, but was then told to order at the cashier. Submitted my order and the food did not come after a long while. I was later told to pay first. When the food was prepared, I was told to pick it up myself.

    The eatery appears to be a restaurant, and the menu is priced akin to a restaurant, but service is upfront payment at the cashier’s counter and self-service. Confusing and insulting. Felt like a scam.

    Food is standard fare and above average at best. Nothing spectacular.

    This local dim sum outlet at Geylang had a nice retro feel in black and white tiles and marble tables. Ordered carrot and yam cake, char siew CCF and chives dumplings with soya bean drink and kopi. Total of $14. Food was bland. Almost all of them are not hot at all. Char siew CCF was expensive and didn’t taste good. It was a disappointing breakfast!

    food was alright but kinda of pricey. the wanton noodle was SGD$4, noodle was springy but the sauce tasted a little different from the usual black sauce. the dim sum menu were limited and mostly were fried items. in my opinion, the the food was average and it does not justify the price tag.
