Located on the third floor of a quiet indoor mall with small utilitarian shops and fast-food stalls, Floata does not have carts but offers dim sum from a menu, including one with pictures. All our choices, including dumplings, meatballs, and steamed pork-filled buns, were freshly...More

Just average tasting dim sum. Could use more taste. Restaurant too large, could not keep up with the orders going into the kitchen. Took forever for food to come out. Service was slow, possibly need more staff.

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.
Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian
cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking,

space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
