Absolutely amazing food & service . Definitely will be coming back and recommending.. not too keen on the serving and price of the soft shell crab 😳.. but everything else, amazing.
Held a work function for 8 people. Excellent service and atmosphere. The food in the "Far East Feast" was delicious and came to the table in no time at all.
Awesome food, fabulous service, definitely recommend to all to go and visit. All the food was amazing and can't wait to go back and try more of the menu.
The Dainty Dowager was fantastic. The restaurant was very busy however the wait staff were so friendly and cheerful even though they were run off their feet. Nothing was a problem for them. The food was sensational, we came for a girls night and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
Had the set degustation menu and the food was excellent and plentiful. Good wine list. Manager Dwight was a pleasure to interact with, He was very pro-active and vibrant. The only suggestion that I would give is for the entree's to come in stages and at a slower speed so that we can enjoy the wines with the various food that was presented. Maybe 2 entrees at a time would have been perfect. We were introduced to this restaurant by LKCH and they are now definitely 2 of our best restaurants to dine in. Will be back again very shortly.
Food very nice, fresh and tasty. Cocktails very nice, and well-made. The service was efficient, attentive and friendly, and staff were happy to answer questions. Decor is nice and I like the subdued lighting, gives nice ambience and is relaxing. Place was buzzing with lots of diners and the staff were very upbeat, keeping food and drinks coming out at a good pace. Became quite noisy because of combination of music and happy, chatty diners; did not detract, but perhaps music could be wound down a little. Also, would have preferred ambient temperature to be a little cooler, just a degree or two. Overall very happy with dining experience.
Good food, good service. Had a highchair for kids. Great atmosphere. Food cooked fresh and beautifully presented. We shared a small roast duck - sweet, crispy skin, tender meat on the bone; filo pork skewers - marinated in cola, sweet tender and juicy, only 2 per serve; karage chicken pops which were deep fried and battered with a beautiful savoury flavour, a nice helping; dumplings 4 beautifully presented pork, juicy and lovely steamed wrapper; sung choi bao with chicken mince, healthy light, 3 per serve.
Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here . We particularly enjoyed the San Cho Bao and the mushrooms with mixed vegetables. We were less enthused by the steam boat . We did not mind the stock but thought it lacked other flavours and lacked texture. The deep fried bean curd with chocolate ganache and condensed milk was great . Wait staff very helpful and well informed about the food they were recommending and serving which indicates good dialogue between kitchen staff and front of house staff , and their enthusiasm for food . This is sometimes lacking in all manner of eateries.
Service was fantastic. Dwight, the Food & Beverage Manager, was so helpful with food & wine choices - our meals & wine were amazing! I will be recommending Dainty Dowager to friends and family.
Very relaxed and simple decor, dimmed lighting really adds to the ambiance. All the wait staff were incredibly knowledgeable with the menu and were able to help with choosing of drinks on asking what you like. We did the 'far east feast' and all the food was incredibly presented, delicious and well cooked. The fest also meant we got to try a big variety of dishes we might not have otherwise ordered. Will definitely be coming back!
