Mouth Restaurant may not be a name that readily springs to mind when we are thinking of an affordable Chinese restaurant with decor that is modern and inviting. We were thus quite impressed when we walked into Mouth Restaurant Marina Square and saw its casual but modern Chinese interior design. The restaurant offers a full range of traditional as well as contemporary Chinese dishes – from dim sum and claypot rice to Peking duck and sautéed Australian tenderloin cubes.
Started a few decades ago in Chinatown, Mouth Restaurant has been located in different places over the years. Currently, it has two outlets – in China Square Central and Marina Square.
Mouth Restaurant Marina Square has a look of casual elegance. The small pace does not feel congested. There is even a small “private dining” area.

Dinner at Mouth Restaurant Marina Square
We went for dinner at Mouth Restaurant Marina Square recently. It was a family dinner with many dishes to feed hungry teenagers. We started with a deep fried dim sum item. The prawn dumpling did not look great but was quite enjoyable with its very crispy skin.
The next dish was prawn ball coated with cream of salted egg yolk. It was a good version of the currently popular dish. The flavour of salted egg yolk was not overpowering and the almond flakes provided a nice contrast both in terms of texture and taste.
Though the fried fish looked quite intimidating, it was crispy, tasty and really delicious.
We also had Peking Duck – with the crispy duck skin, egg crepe and the delicious sauce. The rest of the duck was fried with scallions and served as a separate dish. We also had a few other dishes, including vegetables and soup, none of which was particularly memorable.
The final dish – the Crab Bee Hoon Soup – was a delicious one. It was a simple straightforward dish that was satisfying and delightful. The delicate crab meat had a tinge of sweetness and the clear broth was flavourful.
Saving the best for last, Mouth Restaurant’s famous Liu Sha Bao with salted egg custard was served as dessert. The baked bo lo bao had a crisp exterior. The filling inside was a generous amount of salted egg yolk lava. You may be tempted to skip the dessert after a sumptuous meal – but do give Mouth Restaurant’s Liu Sha Bao a try. We thought it was worth the extra calories.
Good for family gatherings or large group
Accommodating the different tastes of a group of people can sometimes be a real challenge. However, even the picky teenagers found dishes which delighted them when had dinner at Mouth Restaurant. The wide-ranging menu, nice food, reasonable prices and a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere make Mouth Restaurant Marina Square a good restaurant for family gatherings or large group.
