I was looking for a good Chinese Restaurant as venue for dinner in celebrating my son's graduation in Kindergarten. When I browsed through the internet, the choices are quite enormous. However, the place Hai Tien Lo kept on appearing in a lot of food blogs and food reviews. This seemed to be a really popular restaurant then. After much careful thought, I yielded to give it a try. Fortunately, it did not disappoint me.
Armed with a recognition of being one of Singapore's Best Restaurant by Singapore Tatler and Women's Weekly, Hai Tien Lo must be among the creme de la creme of Singapore's dining scene. It basically offers cantonese cuisine and what the menu states leaves an impression of high expectation.
"Indulge in a sumptuous Cantonese cuisine with breathtaking views of Singapore skyline. Master Chef Lai Tong Ping presents exquisite dining menus upholding the finest quality, consistency and culinary creativity at Hai Tien Lo."
Since it's a rainy evening when we went, we enjoyed good food sans the good skyline. We had the Peach Flower set menu and the selections were real satisfying.

|Barbecued meat and duck|
|Baked Fillet of Sea Perch with Japanese Teriyaki Sauce, by far the best fish dish I've tasted in the island, so succulent!|
|Double-boiled Shark's Fin with Chicken, Chinese Cabbage & Pine Mushrooms in Superior Soup|
|Braised Ee-Fu Noodles with Crab Meat|
|Double-boiled Cream of Almonds with Glutinous Rice Dumplings.|
On the whole dining at Hai Tien Lo is a combination of good ambiance, superb view, great service and luscious food. What else can you ask for? I'm coming back for the Dim sum Brunch Buffet.
