The China Club Singapore is a ‘members only’ club perched on the top of the Capitaland’s flagship building – the Capital Tower on Robinson Road. It seems to be primarily a dining club as we only observed two facilities on the premises during our visit. The main restaurant at China Club Singapore and the Long March Bar. The former is a full-fledged Chinese restaurant and the latter a small bar serving drinks and finger food.
The lift stops on the 52nd floor and the doors open to reveal a dark wood-panelled, Oriental themed lift lobby that leads to the reception. Turning left leads to the Long March Bar which I will show you at the end of this post. A right turn takes us to the main China Club restaurant.
The classical Chinese decor and the 270 degree views are the two things that immediately grab my attention. Any guest, such as myself, will be impressed by the China Club Singapore before a single peanut is served.
The main dining area can be sectioned off to create private dining rooms. A beautiful and classy space to entertain.
Enough of the gawking, back to the business at hand. We had a selection of dim sum. Unfortunately, I do not have photos of the dim sum menu to show you, but here are two random pages of the regular menu, so readers can have an idea of the range of food served here. Surprisingly, the prices (while not low) was not as bad as I had expected. However, one has to factor in the cost of joining and the monthly subscriptions.
Here are the dim sum items that we had. The crystal dumpling and har kow can rival those of the top dim sum restaurants in town. The Szechuan dumpling with spicy sauce and radish cake were both excellent – possibly the best we have eaten in recent times. We had a second round of these items.
The rice rolls, the baked char siew soh and the spring rolls were however quite ordinary.
Here are some pictures of the Long March Bar. Seems like the perfect place for happy hour and watch the sun set.
Overall, it was a pleasurable experience dining 52 floors above Singapore on the top on the Capital Tower in the China Club restaurant. Hopefully, I will get another invitation to try the items from the regular menu.
