Soup Restaurant is the default place my family will go to for dinner during the weekend. The food has remained consistent over the years although the prices have been increasing.

You definitely must order the Samsui Chicken which comes with an excellent ginger sauce that you can wrap in lettuce. If only they served chicken rice as well instead of just plain rice. A few of my other favourite dishes include the garlic curly prawns, Spinach with 3 kinds of eggs and their fried home made tofu.

Although soup restaurant sells chizhar standard food at more expensive prices, its the quality and consistency that will keep me coming back each time.

This is one of my family's favourite Chinese restaurants. As I did not grow up in Chinatown, I've no idea what Chinatown food is like. This restaurant gave me an 'education' on Chinatown food in the past. For some strange reason, the ambience is not really suitable for chit-chat. Once we have totally consumed the food, we would immediately ask for the bill. Somehow we didn't feel like staying on for a chit-chat after a meal. Don't know why.

Although my family tried to vary the dishes each time we visit the restaurant, 2 dishes remain constant in all our orders--the Samsui Ginger Chicken and the Spicy Sweet Potato Leaves. My hubby told me that in the past, our ancestors were very poor, and they often go out in the streets to pick up some stray sweet potato leaves to bring home for food. Now, the sweet potato leaves have become a rarity among the Chinese vegetable dishes.

The other dishes worth trying are the Steamed Fish (Steamed San Yu), Beggar Bowl Tofu and Double Boiled Waisan & Ginseng Roots with Chicken Soup. The Beggar Bowl Tofu makes me wonder whether there were many Chinese Buddhist monks in Singapore in the past. After all, Chinese Buddhist monks carry alms bowls and eat tofu, right?

My family never ordered rice as we are afraid the rice would take away our enjoyment of the dishes by making us feel full :-)

The restaurant has prepared the Chinatown food so well that sometimes I wonder, if we were to travel back in time to get a taste of the Chinatown food, would it taste the same, and would we have enjoyed it as much as we do in Soup Restaurant.

The decor of Soup restaurant gives a historic days heritage feel during our grandparents era. While it is commendable, i wish their seats would have a back rest as my parents' back will tend to ache after sitting throughout the dinner.

Food wise, I love their samsui ginger chicken and toufu prawns! It is their signature dishes. Although they are acclaimed as 'soup restaurant', i felt that the soups were normal and not really fantastic. Their signature dishes stole the limelight away! Soup restaurant is an ideal place for families as the food offered are tasty and healthy. They also have set menus to cater to different family sizes which is a thoughftul action. Prices are also relatvely reasonable.

A cozy place to come back for with families for a home-cooked feeling feast

I still remember a long time ago when I was still young, I actually celebrated my birthday at the Jurong Point outlet. I could never ever forget the delicious, succulent and tender juicy chicken that my mother wrapped it with cabbage and a bit of garlic sauce, it was probably one of the most delicious food i have ever taste

Not too long ago, I went out with my friend to eat in the same restaurant but different outlet located at VivoCity. He had the member card because his uncle was one of the original stakeholder in the company. And oh my, I actually ordered 3 servings of rice that very same day because I could not help myself to that awesome food.

There is still of course other food in the menu, but if you were to ask me what is my favorite food. Definitely the Samsui Ginger Chicken, you will regret not eating it.

When hunger pangs starts and I want to kick back and slow things down, no place does it better than Soup Kitchen. Even the queue to enter this place slow the pace down of your life with an average waiting time of 30-45minutes during dinner and lunch time for both weekends and even weekdays.

From the initial point of entry, the decor seeks to grab your attention with its prestige chinese layout and woody furniture with marble top table. This is however slightly more casual and affordable compared to the really prestigious chinese restaurants scattered all over the island.

My firm favourite meal will include the following dishes, Samsui Ginger Chicken, Spicy Kankong, rice and claypot tofu. I would then wash this wonderful meal down with chrysanthemum tea. One might ask why do I go to soup kitchen when this is readily available at your local coffee shop for a small portion of the price. The portioning and the experience is the key in my opinion why I keep coming back for it.

The samsui ginger chicken is served with a hearty portion of chicken with the bones removed which is a definite plus for a lazy guy like me. It is served with a cucumber around the plate with ginger in a separate bowl. Accompanying this dish is the lettuce which differentiate this chicken from your chicken rice at the coffee shop. The way to eat this is to use the lettuce as a wrap covering the chicken with a good serving of ginger. The taste I would say works spectacularly for me as an individual as the chicken is moist even if it is breast meat which is a good sign of the detailed recipe that they value themselves behind.

The claypot tofu is a wonderful side dish to accompany the chicken and its flavour-filled starch sauce make me scrap the pot for more. The tofu is rich in that flavour too and is not plain. The tofu is very soft so be careful if you attempt to pick it up with a pair of chopsticks.

The spicy Kankong is just perfect. I like this dish with rice any day but it is always ruin by being too small a portion, too spicy for my taste or simply too oily. This is cooked with a great crunch and the sambal is just nice and does not put on a fighting front with the other dishes offered here.

As a soup kitchen, their soup is what I will choose randomly every time I'm here. I change my mind every time because there is just so much flavour in it and choosing one is simply too difficult.

The chrysanthemum tea make the meal a pallet cleanser for me and the flowers being present in the tea gives the purist touch I love about my tea.

As the name suggests, this restaurant boasts soups of exceptional richness in its taste. The soup I ordered the last time I was there was the Double Boiled Waisan & Ginseng Roots with Chicken Soup which was really savoury.

The most popular dish and a must order would have to be the Samsui Ginger Chicken. It is served with their special ginger sauce in the center surrounded by boneless chicken slices and cucumber slices, served with fresh and crunchy lettuce. This is definitely a dish that you cannot find elsewhere!

While the food was of high quality, the prices may be perceived as rather steep.

Brought my family out for my grandma’s birthday and all of us including my grandma enjoyed the dishes! Here a few dishes we ordered:

I don’t feel a need to introduce this dish. It’s a must-order and of course the highlight of your meal at Soup restaurant. It is none other than the samsui chicken! This samsui chicken is sliced into small pieces and served with ginger and cucumber. This is also my grandma’s favourite! The chicken is soft and tender and therefore, very suitable for children and elderly! If I didn’t remember wrongly, they provided us with lettuce to wrap the chicken as well! Kids will definitely have fun with this!

My family also ordered their beggar tofu and I love the sauce which goes with it! However, we’ve ate better tofu dishes at much cheaper price so probably wouldn’t order it again.

Overall, I love the ambience of Soup Restaurant and the uniform of their staff. It is perfect to arrange for family dinner here as the food are suitable for both the children and elderly. However, the price are a little on the high side. One more thing to note, make reservations! I’ve no idea why but they always seem to have long queues whether weekends or weekdays!

The Soup Restaurant offers a unique range of chinese cuisine for their customers. You would have the feel of dining at a old heritage restaurant when you stepped into the various outlets of Soup Restaurant. Not only the atmosphere and ambiance fulfill the criteria of the traditional heritage feeling, the food is also of top quality and would satisfy the cravings of customers.

The more famous dishes are the Samsui Ginger Chicken and the herbal soups with very strong and unique taste. By dipping the Samsui Chicken into ginger sauce and by wrapping it with lettuce, it simply tastes awesome. The freshness and tenderness of the chicken is also a plus point for this particular dish.

The staff over there are very friendly and welcoming, which makes the restaurant a better place to dine in. Its top rated service and quality good food also attracts many customers to visit and dine in the Soup Restaurant.

If you are looking for a restaurant that sells traditional chinese cuisine, the Soup Restaurant is certainly the best place to dine in. The food they sell might be a little pricey but it is still worth it for its quality of food!

Cantonese are applauded for their fine culinary skills (except for me). Therefore, the taste is so distinctive that everyone knows what clan the dishes belong to.

Could it be the large numbers of Cantonese in Hong Kong, China, Malaysia and Singapore that markets the dishes so well, compared to other dialects of smaller nuclear numbers?

Well-known fact that all Cantonese will have soup as a compulsory side dish during dinner time. Soup is as important as herbal tea to a Cantonese.

Somehow Cantonese feels something missing if soups are not served during meals. Therefore, there is an endless list of soup recipes. Cantonese try to stick to herbal or traditional recipes passed down from generations.

Of course, there is also a list of basic traditional soups. In Soup restaurant, we are able to find the basic soups - Watercress Soup, Old cucumber soup, Pork ribs soup, Black chicken feet with peanuts soup, Winter melon soup etc.

Comparisons made on soups are gauged by the thickness, right combination of ingredients and right amount of ingredients of the soup. This, I think Soup restaurant has acheived a good standard.

Of course, Soup restaurant offers other dishes such as sesame pork ribs, Mapo Tofu etc.
Soup restaurant was a high end Chinese restaurant in the past. It is still now, with steeper prices and lower standard of food quality.

To a Cantonese, they will usually prefer to brew their own soup at home as there are fixed formulaes in brewing them. Will hardly go wrong unless you scrimp on the ingredients.
Rather not spend money to consume a pricey dish if they can do it almost everyday at home.

Patrons of a different dialect will appreciate the soups however. But I do caution that similar or higher quality of soups can be found in other restaurants at cheaper prices.

Overall, it is still a nice environment for families to gather at. The main dishes are awesome despite promising to burn a hole in your pocket.

Whenever I am craving for some tasty boiled soups and chinese food, Soup Restaurant is the first place I think of. Of course, being a Chinese, it also means that my mother cooks a lot of chinese food for our meals. That makes my visit to the Soup Restaurant even more special as I hardly go there for chinese food. I am not going to deny that my mother is a great cook so whatever chinese food I taste, I will always use her food as a benchmark. I'm glad to say that Soup Restaurant is a place worth going for if you are dying for a good chinese meal but have no one to cook it for you.

The boiled soups are very flavorful and rich, my must-orders are the double boiled ginseng chicken soup. You can tell that they do not skimp on the ingredients and they put in effort in double-boiling it, which makes it so much nicer than normal boiled soups. So good! The steamed chicken (they call it 'kou shui ji' in chinese) is a dish not to be missed. The meat is so tender and fresh and the sauce is the perfect sauce to eat your fluffy white rice with. Atmosphere is not at its best with the constant clanging of utensils which I think are trademarks of most chinese restaurants. All in all, very highly-recommended if you are looking for an authentic chinese meal bursting with home-cooked flavors.
