Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant (Bugis Junction) Dim Sum High Tea Buffet (3pm - 5pm on weekdays; 2:45pm - 4:15pm and 4:15pm - 6:15pm on weekends & public holidays)








Complimentary Soup Bun (1 for each pax)










Freshly prepared when ordered, Xiao Long Baos (available with meat or vegetable). One of the better items IMO.










There's also spicy and sour soup, century egg porridge, shanghai fried rice, fried noodle, etc.




Dessert & assorted fruits
















The spread isnt huge and the quality of food in general is average, though the xiao long baos and the soup bun are quite decent. However, given the promotional offer of $16.90 (qoo10) for each pax (not including condiments, tea, service charge and GST), it is quite value-for-money.

Thanks for the feedback. How much is the total nett price per pax?

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Kindly Note that $16.90 is for the items listed in the Buffet Menu and is EXCLUSIVE of GST/Service Charge, Pickles, Towels and Beverages.
Pickles, Towels and Beverages are optional and are payable to the merchant upon redemption.

one the review:

Actual price paid was S$22.24+ per pax. $16.90 was only for the food. Cost of Beverages, towels, appetizers (unless you opt that out) are charged seperatedly and on top of that service charge and GST , all payable at the restaurant. So if you are purchasing this voucher because S$16.90 seems cheap, you should take the full cost into consideration.S$22.24 is without the appetizer by the way. The variety is VERY limited.The pictures on the advertisement is very misleading because besides the szechuan sweet and sour soup, the rest of the items shown (in the pictures) were not included in the buffet. And not all the 20 items listed (in words) were available. The food was just satisfactory (although I was a little disappointed with the garden salad and fruit platter)..it didn't really seem fresh - the dragon fruit was sour and the rock melon seemed overly ripe. P.S I have been to this restaurant 4 times before this visit and I find the quality of this buffet falls short of the usual standard .Nonetheless, their staff were prompt and I was quite pleased when they allowed me to make a reservation on the day itself, because it was a last minute decision to drop by.


lucky optional for those 3. but wait for reply on his nett charges

As mentioned above, it depends on what u order. For a pot of jasmine tea (unlimited), condiments (achar and peanuts+ikan billis), service charger + tax it comes up to around $25 nett/pax.


Forgot to mention, their chicken wings are awesome!
