This was the second time I visited this dining venue within a month. Upon entry, we came across one of the staff Annika who served us last time. She was amiable, gave us a warm welcome and greeted us hospitably. We sat by the window...and enjoyed the great ambience with a spectacular harbor view. The business luncheon menu was fabulous, the dishes were displayed in an awesome manner and the food was incredible and delicious. Special thanks for the impeccable and quality service offered by the team of Ivan, Sasa, Stephen and Max under the leadership of the manager Henry. They were professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful, taking good care of us. We had a wonderful lunch and an unforgettable dining experience.More

I would like to express my thanks especially to Annika who provides outstanding and professional service, explaining to us the features of each dish. This is an exceptional food experience.More

Very happy with our experience! My husband and I had the Premier Delicacy dinner menu and they were able to make tweaks for my courses to accommodate my pescatarian diet. Each course is served extremely hot and fresh, they hit the spot just right in...terms of getting our bellies filled, even for courses like abalone and lobster where you expect it to be heavy, they were light and not overpowering, very enjoyable. As I mentioned we are celebrating my husband’s birthday in the booking, they also prepared a cute surprise with polaroid photo taking in the end. I highly recommend anyone to visit Yan Toh Heen!More

It was my first time visiting this restaurant. When my friends and I arrived at the reception, the receptionist told us that our dresses did not fulfil their requirements. We told the lady that the guy calling us the night before did not tell us...anything about the dress code. However, the lady did not response to our questions and simply ignore us. Suddenly, a man claimed to be the restaurant manager, Henry Wong, came and we though he was coming to solve the problem. To our disappointment, he did not offering any help at all in response to the bad attitude of the receptionist, he was just repeatedly telling us that “our restaurant has dress code!”. The attitude of the restaurant manager was definitely not acceptable from a restaurant of this standard.More
