Peach Garden Chinatown Point is another branch of the popular Chinese restaurant chain. The Chinatown Point outlet is described by Peach Garden as their “fine, casual dining extension” which they explained as an attempt to combine the best of both worlds – offering “award-winning cuisine of Peach Garden Chinese Restaurant and the relaxed vibe of Peach Garden Noodle House”. We went for lunch at Peach Garden Chinatown Point recently and thought that they managed to hit the sweet spot where we could get good food in a smart casual setting.
We have previously written about our visits to Peach Garden @ The Metropolis and Peach Garden Noodle House @ White Sands and we have also dined at Peach Garden @ OCBC Centre on a number of occasions. In terms of decor, Peach Garden Chinatown Point would be close to that of the OCBC Centre outlet but the general atmosphere is more relaxed. It has a general dining hall which is not very big and there are also private rooms. The patrons are a mix of the office executives, the old Chinese towkays and families.
It has a comprehensive Chinese restaurant menu, set meals as well as a dim sum menu. Below are pictures of random sections of Peach Garden menus.
We ordered one of their popular dishes – Braised Homemade with Mushrooms ($18 for a small plate). It was a good dish. The beancurd was smooth but sufficient firm so that it did not disintegrate the moment it was touched. Their was sufficient complexity in the taste to make the simple dish interesting.
We also tried a few of their dim sum items – steamed scallops dumplings ($5.80), deep-fried bean curd skin with prawns ($5.80) and the steamed custard buns ( $4.20).
They did not look fancy and all the dim sum items were of good Chinese restaurant standards. We particularly enjoyed the custard buns. The skin was soft, fluffy and light.
Overall, we had a nice meal at Peach Garden Chinatown Point. The prices are not low and the usual Chinese restaurant overheads, plus GST and service charge, would be added to the bill. However, it was a nice elegant but casual restaurant and we did get food of the reliable Peach Garden Chinese restaurant standard.
