    Came here for dinner. Must make reservation cos it was full (maybe cos it was Friday night). We ordered the signature kung pau bao which was really good n the bao was so soft n tender…the yam basket which was really good n the hot plate tofu. The only thing I didn’t like about is that they put down tea n water as if it’s for free n we only found out when we paid that those r charged (tea @$1 water @$0.3) and they don’t refill

    Booked online. We saw they had many orders to deliver with their online system. We sat indoors where it was air-contioned. We ordered the prawn vermicelli (tasty and generous portion), long beans (beans were crunchy but too salty because there was too much hee bee hiam). The beef brisket was a little disappointing in terms of quantity and the kind of beef cuts they gave. It was also too salty for my liking. Best to go with rice. The ngoh hiang was nice though it’s presentation might seem less refined. We also had a little shock when tiny blank ants spilled from the tongs they gave us. Of course, they were very apologetic. Think it was really a one off incident and not representative of the hygiene standards there so we carried on with our meal quite happily. Four dishes, three ladies, $25+ pp.

    Generous portion, easy parking and payment by many modes makes me come back time and again to this HDB eating place for the past 2 odd decades. Post pandemic seating is now much saner though the din is still terrible. Expect to wait for more than 30 minutes after your order on weekends because the online orders is insane.

    Its the best kung bak pao (扣肉包, braised pork bun) in Singapore. The other dishes like prawn paste chicken (虾酱鸡) is crispy on the outside and juicy in the inside. The steam fish is fresh with the old time style.

    Really good Chinese restaurant. Have heard of it for a long time and finally get to visit it. Main highlight is the braised meat with bun,the Vege and the popiah. mapo tofu was more for kids as it’s very mild with tomato sauce. Went to a relative who is a study of the late founder and received a small discount. Very admirable for them to keep to such practice.

    Really appreciate and thankful to Westlake for their service and accountability to call us the very moment Grab driver cancelled our order when the food is supposed to be delivered instead.

    The food was cooked and in their restaurant, waiting to be delivered. Our kids were hungry and waiting to eat. Was very grateful that Zhiyang offered to check with us and volunteered to deliver to us instead due to the last min changes.

    Will definitely check out their online delivery next time other than our other in person visits in their shop that we usually do. Thanks again!! Food awesome as usual. Kids love their noodles and corn soup. Well known for the Kong bak buns^^ We especially like to eat when in shop staying nearby for 4 years

    I have had “Bao” buns in several restaurants in the United States but I will never bother ordering them again after having the Braised Pork Pau buns here. With each order you get a separate plate of buns and then another plate of the most perfect slices of braised pork. I also had the Shanghai stir fried greens and the hot plate tofu both of which were very good as well.

    It’s been 20 years since I had the Kong Bah Pau as a teenager . I decided to bring my partner to try, as he loves Kong Bah Pau. It was really disappointing as the Kong bah is served hard and pretty cold, and the Pau tasted worse than those coffee shop paus- it has a stale aftertaste (like when your pau is stored in fridge overnight and you reheat it ) and sticky doughy texture, unlike the fresh fluffy paus I got 20 years ago. We ordered the Signature west lake roast chicken, which was also below average- that any roast chicken from coffee shop would have tasted fresher and more delicious. The mushroom and cabbage was flat and overloaded with oil in oyster sauce- no taste of wok hey I expected.

    I do not think it deserves to be known as king of kong bah pau anymore. Certainly will not return.

    First time doing an online order for a small group gathering of 5. Although the delivery of $20 is hefty but the 15% discount on food did help to reign in the cost. The delivery was 10min earlier and the food was still hot. Most of all, we were pleasantly surprised by the generous portions despite ordering the ‘small’ size.. The black pepper pork ribs was surprisingly tender. We ordered beef hor fun which had the wok hei , the hot plate bean curd and yam basket were good too. We ordered white rice and the portions were huge. We could not finish all the rice.
    Overall, very happy with the whole experience for the price we paid.

    Not really a nice experience, service and food.

    Service. I respect the seniors in service line, knowing the menu well. However, being impolitely served by 2 isn’t very pleasant. They gave us a black face when we ordered our food and didn’t respond when we reminded our no-prawn request.

    Food. Kong bak pau was still good. However, all other dishes were very salty, including stir-fry vegetables. When we asked for more tea and gave a feedback to a server of the saltiness of the dishes, she ignored us and walked away.

    Despite the reputable kong bak pau, my family will not return to dine in this restaurant. We are willing to eat the dish in other places. It’s a pity. A dish with such history and memories… should continue it’s legacy with pride and humility. Best wishes.

    Place was crowded, so luckily we booked a table on Saturday.
    The braised pork was OK. The shrimp roll was above average but the chilli crab wasn’t that tasty as I remembered. Maybe because the crab was “old” and hence rubbery.
    The place really needs a renovation. Tables can be close to each other making walking between them a bit uncomfortable. Service could be more attentive, though.

    My favourite go to dinner restaurant for some authentic Chinese Singapore food. Hotplate Beancurd comes in a tasty gravy. Very good with white rice! Sweet and sour pork sauce is very balanced with well marinated pieces of fried pork.

    Prawn paste chicken which is a mainstay for most restaurant cannot be found here. But their version of pepper and salt fried chicken is really tasty. Batter is light and crispy.

    This place also serves one of the best beef horfun with sauce ! It is definitely a must try.

    Combination platter was as old school as it gets. Loved the assortment of appetizers in a platter.
    Fish maw soup was thick but somehow a tad sweet. Generous quantity of fish maw.
    Prawn paste chicken was too mild but the freshness and crispness were undeniable.
    Steamed Seabass was cooked perfectly but the murky soil flavor is evident.
    Sauteed Mixed vegetable was good which I would have preferred it was not thicken with so much cornstarch.
    Kong Bak Pau is their signature dish. Pork belly braised till soft with a rich dark soy sauce. The bun was superbly fluffy.
    Ngoh Hiong was an extra dish we ordered apart from the set. Fresh and crisp but lacking in flavor which I was looking for.
    Fried Egg Noodle did not work for me as it was too mushy and oily for my liking.
    Red Bean Pancake was outstanding. The skin was crispy while the red Bean paste had a balance of sweetness and saltiness.
    Overall some hits and misses but this is definitely an institution to visit.
    Service is very competent and friendly with the old staff.

    The restaurant is best visited at 6pm or earlier due to crowds(reservation preferred). Its an old school eatery that serves a large group of elderly customers. The food is tad salty to cater for older taste buds so please consider carefully the dishes you gonna order. Go for the usual Braised Pork buns and you won’t go wrong.

    This 40 plus year establishment has been serving lip-smacking food since its inception.

    Every dish and I mean every dish is absolutely delicious. Some notable favourites include Braised Pork with Steamed Buns and wide array of seafood dishes (crabs, prawns, fish, squid, abalone, etc).

    The restaurant has both air-conditioned and al fresco dining options. It also serves iced-cold Tiger Draft from the tap!

    A negative customer service experience yet again. Ordered “Yi Mian” takeaway through the phone but the restaurant prepared “Sheng Mian”. Instead of apologising for the error, the lady boss convinced me to take the wrong order by saying, in her EXACT words “Have you had our Yi Mian before? Nice meh? Not nice la. If you insist on Yi Mian it won’t be this price you know.” Guys, the lady boss said it herself, “Yi Mian” is NOT nice. Don’t order.

    Best Kong Bah Pao! Prices of bao has gone up to about $3 per piece. Made their own buns not factory made. Will still buy occasionally to bring home. This restaurant has been cooking good food for at least 20 years. They have many good dishes such as Chilli crab, Yee Fu noodles, really old school food. The menu has all the dishes you will see in Chinese Wedding dinner in the 70s. Maybe a bit far off town but worth it to make a trip there for their Chinese food.

    Only worth going for their specialties. I live nearby and have been dozens of times. Famous for their fatty pork buns, but only a few dishes are really worth mentioning. Like their hot & sour soup — probably the best in Singapore. But most of their dishes are just so-so, often too generous with the oil (fried long beans) and too stingy with the portion (fried rice). Some dishes like Kung Pao Chicken just can’t make it (sorry) and beef dishes are only average at best. Compared to other HDB tze char, I’d say it’s roughly 20% more expensive than others of similar quality & quantity.

    Decided to pick dinner here to try after our family 5km walk/run at botanics. It was nearby. We ordered online and then went for walk then pick up dinner and headed back home. Tried their braised pork with buns (扣肉包), prawns in xo sauce, chicken in salt pepper, deep fried baby squid, baby kai lan in oyster sauce. All the items was well prepared, tasted good and we believe the restaurant does not use msg. The online order platform is easy and friendly to use. The system worked well as we indicated a 630pm pick up. We arrived at around 615pm and the items were just ready and packed. We noted that the restaurant is popular and had many customers picking up their food as well. Good sign.

    Back again to pack for FIL birthday dinner on 30 oct. 5 stars.

    There’s a definite reason why this restaurant is very popular not just among locals but also tourists. Almost every time I dine there would be at least a table full of Japanese people having a blast enjoying their hearty meal complete with beer.

    The kong bak pao is a must. It’s a delight. Soft fluffy bread with tender pork belly marinated in their special sauce will just make you crave for more. Other notable dishes are their sweet sour fried fish and fried pork (in Mongolian sauce? I’m not sure as they don’t indicate in details). The pork dishes are consistently succulent and flavorful, and the fish dishes are a step above your regular zi char. For the vegetable, try out their long bean with dried prawn as it’s guaranteed to blow you away.

    Braised pork with the lotus leaf buns are a must try, the fried chicken with salt and pepper are delicious as well as they do not come off being too oily. Do ask for the braised pork glutinous rice as well if you are dining in, as this is not shown on their dine-in menu.

    Went there on a weekend evening for dinner. My first visit there. We had a group of 12 pax which includes 6 children. Some hits and misses with the food.

    Likes: the kong ba pau was excellent. The kids liked the pau itself without the meat. The pork was very soft and tender. Excellent! Sauce goes very well either with the pau or rice.

    The other dishes like the hokkien mee was good too.

    The hotplate tofu didn’t have the wok hei smell so I guessed it’s most likely the hotplate wasn’t heated up sufficiently. The slight spice in the sauce was quite good though!

    The roast chicken is excellent. Nicely flavoured. Very tender meat.

    The sweet sour pork was good. Yam ring was great. The chicken, mushrooms inside were plentiful.

    Broccoli was OK.

    Overall a good meal. But I think there could be stronger contenders for Zi Char out there. The ambience was good as it is nestled in an old HDB estate.

    Heard good review about the kong ba bao! Tried it at the world food fair but find it overrated. The bun was soft & good and the sauce was unique. However the pork was too thin, could hardly taste the meat. Perhaps eating at the main outlet is better.

    A pretty classic restaurant that’s managed to withstand the test of time due to their consistently delicious food. We ordered their signature braised pork baos / kong bak bao, and the yam basket, both of which were delicious. There are no pictures because we ate it all so fast. Portions seem to be on the large side so don’t do what I did and attempt to eat half the yam basket on your own. We waddled out wishing we had invited more people along.

    Service is fast and vaguely friendly. While they’re polite and attentive, don’t expect the staff to smile a ton or spend time making small talk with you. Think old school Chinese restaurant style service, which I quite liked.

    Just had dinner there with my parents.
    Service – every table came with a call button. Despite pressing the call button several times inbetween interval, no one came to take our order. I had to approach the cashier counter to give them my order chit.

    Upon giving them my order, we didn’t had to wait long and dishes were served one after another. But once again, we told the waitress when they serve our dishes to serve us our rice. Yet our rice are not served yet even when most of the dishes are on our table. After 3 reminder, once again we had to go up to the cashier counter.

    When we ask for the bill, immediate response. Typical.

    Food – overall it’s not bad though the fish maw soup is overly salty.

    Ambience – crowded, tight space inside the restaurant. Like most Chinese restaurants – noisy and could hardly hold much conversation without raising our voice. Those sitting across you may not get most of what you’re saying.

    Our order:
    7 pax, 6 dishes + misc = $148.40

    Old school restaurant that many go to for the nostalgia. They have some old favorites that have not changed for decades. It’s almost like a time portal. Though taste and style of cooking are not as refined as the more modern restaurants. Service is attentive with the loyal waiters and waitresses who are way past retirement age. Experience counts. Kombak Pau is a must. Hot plate beef or venison is recommended . Before Din Tai Fong, this was the place for xiao long bao. They probably invented papaya milk shake decades ago too.

    This brand has been known for its 扣肉包(Kong Bak Pau)/(a.k.a. Braised Pork Belly Bun) 1st time visiting the restaurant. Had the Seafood Hor fun – was beautifully cooked with a good amount of sauce and great tasting hor fun with very nice wok hei, giving it a very smoky taste. Next we ordered the specialty roast chicken – was well cooked not too dry, had a nice salty pepper dip on the side. Had a garlic stir fry brocoli. Real crunchy and tasty as to be expected of a brocoli dish. Not overcooked to be too soft. Finally ordered the red bean pancake. Am a fan of red bean dessert and this plate was bite sized. Great tasting way to end the evenings meal. Overall would visit again to try the other items on the menu like the Crab Soup Beehoon which was sold out.

    Like another reviewer mentioned, my food arrived piping hot even though we were 20 minutes away and the delivery was very punctual. Ordered from Westlake as I thought their old school fare would suit my parents’ taste buds for my dad’s birthday. Parents commented that the food tastes a lot better than what they remembered years ago and my mum couldn’t stop raving about how good the food delivered was. She especially liked the roast chicken and hokkien mee. I have never eaten at Westlake personally before this as it is quite far off, but I’m glad I could have enjoyed this with the islandwide delivery (coupled with the 15% off promo so it managed to offset my delivery cost ).

    This is a no frills neighbourhood eating house. I have been here at least 7-8 times in the last 5 years and am seldom disappointed by any of the dishes. The food is good especially the Pork Belly Bun, Roast Chicken, Hot and Sour Soup, and Char Hofan. There are lots of reliable go to traditional style dishes. I have never had crab here, so I cannot comment on those. It’s a no frills place where service is fast and can be someone brusque. This is what stops me from giving it a 5 star. They are not rude or terrible- just terribly efficient and dispenses with niceties. Just eat, enjoy and get out. I always recommend booking ahead unless if you don’t mind sitting outside.

    Really old school vibes and friendly staff. We started with their signature kong bak pao, which goes for 6 pieces for $16. The meat was fork tender, and you eat it with lettuce. It was very good, if a little expensive. I also liked the sambal French beans, which was not too spicy but had lovely minced pork with it.

    The chilli tofu was also pretty good, and had hints of mala. The pan fried dumplings and red bean
    pancakes were a tad overfried and came dark and slightly oily. The pancakes were better than the dumplings.

    The place hasn’t really changed much except for the chairs I believe. Was there in the 80s when i was a kid and now I’m a dad with my own kids and still am there for the “kong bak pau”…the bun fresh out from the steamer, hot and soft with the tender meat is still my favourite! Even my young adult kids love them!

    The dinner is never complete with the delicious red bean pancake at the end of the meal.

    Though i feel that the meal is tad bit pricey with no seafood for a family of 4 @$83 for a nostalgic place like this.

    Must call for reservation if you are going during peak hours and on weekends.

    Food quality dipped comparing to previous dining visit in 2020. Service level was mediocre. It was more of a transactional experience than a human-oriented one. The visit was at 11am just after the place was opened for business, there were no smiles, no greetings, no goodbyes. There was no response when we told one of the waiting staff that a dish was too salty. The crew looked unmotivated, perhaps robotic at best. The Kong Bak Bao salvaged a star to make it 3. Maybe the pandemic took a toll on the people, I do hope the management do not take past reputation for granted and make improvements.

    The braised pork buns are sure to win critics over and convert non believers. Located in a forgotten corner of Singapore yet sit upon such prime land. The contrarian concept extend to her menu and patrons.

    From billionaires to the working men as her patron and serving a menu capable of formal celebration as well as a simple quick bite, you will be welcomed.

    The staff and her outdated poster betray her longevity and you will do well to order the following items as priority

    Went here for reunion dinner earlier last Saturday, after a 5 year long break, but nothing too much has changed

    ATMOSPHERE
    Place is built inside the queenstown hdb estate, so the environment is quite traditional-style, much like the interior of the restaurant. There’s an empty spot nearby for children to play and run about. Inside is quite packed however.

    FOOD
    Nothing overly fanciful, many of the dishes were fairly simple, especially for the vegetables, but none were overly salty/sweet, portion and taste was generally good.

    Main highlights were their specialty pork belly buns, which had great texture, and the fried cuttlefish which was one of the more expensive offerings on the menu.

    SERVICE
    20 minute waiting time for the first dish but afterwards, food came out in succesive order very quickly, and we could enjoy almost all the wide range of food at once.
    Staff were constantly busy, but were able to attend to us quickly for extra rice and drinks, and with good service attitude overall

    VERDICT
    If you like a simple, but affordable chinese dinner experience with family or kids then Westlake is a very convenient choice in the central area of SG. But for more formal gatherings, a proper restaurant with more exquisite food choices and environment would be preferred.

    I didn’t try the Kong Bah Pao this time but I’d surely will the next time. The egg omelette and hotplate tofu are worth trying. Not so sure about the venison though as I thought the sauce leaned on the stronger side.

    Best Kong Bak Bao (扣肉包 / braised pork bun) in Singapore; neither too fatty nor too lean (不肥不柴), rich but yet not over-powering gravy well-balanced with freshly steamed buns.

Just dont order these 2 dishes and stick to those recommended by others.
    Side note is i noticed Westlake employs pioneer generation as waiters and still keep many despite poor business due to covid. So will continue to support them but likely go with family who knows what to order.

    Enjoyed all the dishes. The braised pork with pau was great, especially the meat and the sauce. The roast chicken was crispy on the outside yet juicy and tender on the inside. The venison with spring onion and ginger was tender and had good flavour though could do with larger pieces. The pak chye with mushroom was good – particularly the nice size and firm mushrooms and the sauce.

    Succulent, tender and juicy Kong Ba Bao, this place has been one of my family favourites for decades. Their food does tend to be a tad heavy on the sauce and flavour, so I would suggest not to order too many sauce-heavy dishes.

    Otherwise, their food is tasty and unpretentious, presenting age old dishes in a classic style. Plus, there is ample parking due to its convenient location over an old HDB estate carpark.

    Definitely give this a try!

    Still an all time favourite to many as the restaurant stands in it’s place the last few decades already.

    I didn’t try the Kong Bah Pao this time but I’d surely will the next time. The egg omelette and hotplate tofu are worth trying. Not so sure about the venison though as I thought the sauce leaned on the stronger side.

    Generally the food is sweet. Maybe a sweet tooth cook.

    It’s old school and traditional place which is hard to find these days. Give their braised pork with pau a try. It’s pau (bun) is soft & moist with succulent braised pork in a rich sauce. Tried other dim sum foods such as chee cheong fun (plain) & popiah. Good old traditional foods that are easy on the wallet…

    Westlake Restaurant has been around for decades; I remember visiting with my family when I was a boy.
    Their signature dishes were Braised Pork with Mantou (Kong Bak Pao) and Hot and Sour Soup.
    The Braised Pork was superb, the gravy was excellent, the pork was a mix of fatty and lean meat and very tender, and when eaten together with the steam buns, was heavenly.
    However, the Hot and Sour Soup was disappointing, as it was neither spicy hot nor sour.
    The French Beans were nice and flavourful.
    The service was efficient and fast. This is still one of the best places to go for braised pork, but skip the soup.

    This homemade service, five star taste, most recommended for Chinese food lover in Singapore. The price is affordable and its non-halal resto

    Traditional old school goodness. Great throwback food. Very reasonably priced. Kong bak bao, tofu combo, chilli crabs are all standouts. Reservations recommended for weekend dinners

    Fairly average Chinese cuisine….. The best dish remains the Iberico pork belly with steamed Chinese buns! A must try! Averagely priced but popular with the masses.

    Ordered takeaway during the 2nd Phase 2. Food was good and portions were big. Some chinese dishes that are not so common elsewhere, especially the braised pork buns. Service was efficient and order on time. Will try again dine-in in the future. Overall good neighborhood restaurant.

    Combination platter was as old school as it gets. Loved the assortment of appetizers in a platter.
    Fish maw soup was thick but somehow a tad sweet. Generous quantity of fish maw.
    Prawn paste chicken was too mild but the freshness and crispness were undeniable.
    Steamed Seabass was cooked perfectly but the murky soil flavor is evident.
    Sauteed Mixed vegetable was good which I would have preferred it was not thicken with so much cornstarch.
    Kong Bak Pau is their signature dish. Pork belly braised till soft with a rich dark soy sauce. The bun was superbly fluffy.
    Ngoh Hiong was an extra dish we ordered apart from the set. Fresh and crisp but lacking in flavor which I was looking for.
    Fried Egg Noodle did not work for me as it was too mushy and oily for my liking.
    Red Bean Pancake was outstanding. The skin was crispy while the red Bean paste had a balance of sweetness and saltiness.
    Overall some hits and misses but this is definitely an institution to visit.
    Service is very competent and friendly with the old staff.
