Tsui Wah (翠華餐廳) at Orchard Road

Recently had lunch at Tsui Wah at The Heeren. It's a double storey restaurant and can choose to sit indoor (air con) or outdoor (no air con). It is connected to Robinson at The Heeren. But firstly, we need to get a queue number. We dont have to stand and queue. Just get our queue number via the queue machine and when there's a table they will call us on our handphone. It is so popular that we need to wait for almost 45 minutes. We can choose to dine indoor or outdoor, the number of people and whether to share table or not. We choose not to share table so there's a longer wait for two of us. When I was in Shenzhen, we also dine in Tsui Wah, it was bigger and no queue but the food is almost the same.

I choose the western set and get to have soup of the day (either pumpkin soup or beef soup) and toast bread and drink.

Hubby had Japanese Curry with pork cutlet and we ordered another dish of sweet and sour pork. But think we ordered too much haha.
