Sino, the second endeavor of culinary artist Chris Yeo, was envisioned to entice the palette with the tradition of Dim Sum and the wonders of modern Chinese cuisine. Grand in scale, Sino offers an intimacy and sensuality that is unparalleled- from the warmth of the dining room adorned with billowing crimson curtains and layers of gossamer, to the plush and luxurious appointments of the lounge where comfort and beauty beckon you to stay a while.

"We waited around 40 mins for main course to arrive whereas people who came a lot later than us got their appetizers before us. May not come again due to the long wait despite good food."
