The award-winning Min Jiang restaurant continues to expand its footprint with the opening of Min Jiang at Dempsey. Set amidst the luscious greens of Dempsey Hill, this is the second independent restaurant that Goodwood Park Hotel fully manages off site. Housed in a 5,000 square foot black and white one-storey colonial building with a main dining area, 3 private dining rooms, a timber decked alfresco for outdoor dining and a cosy bar, there will be ample space for 110 guests. It is also a lovely venue choice for couples who wish to hold their wedding in a unique location. Celebrated architect and interior designer, Ernesto Bedmar, has cleverly chosen elements of gold, yellow and green for a hint of glamour, combining it with clean, minimalistic lines to achieve a perfect blend of oriental charm and modern style. Sleek marbled surfaces, plush seating and contemporary furnishings reflect a refined sophistication for a luxuriously comfortable dining experience.

Made a booking online. Received a call to confirm the day itself. Was asked whether I wanted a roasted duck - which I confirmed and asked for a table by the window. Special celebration as it was my wife s birthday. When we arrived table in the middle noisy. The duck was not booked, waiter told me that I refused over the phone - so why did I asked upon ordering the night itself then? The manager told me that it was my fault. We left at once and went somewhere else. The surprise dinner for my wife was ruined... worst customer experience I have ever had.

Food quality did not lift up to expectations. Some dim sum dishes were cold when served.

We were regulars at Min Jiang when we used to live in Singapore and it was located at Rochester Park, One North. It was one of our favourite restaurants especially for special occasions and when visitors came.

We were really looking forward to returning and trying out the new venue but we were sadly disappointed.

The duck was small for 4 people and we weren't served enough lettuce for the second serving. The service too could have been a bit more relaxed and allowed us time to drink our wine slowly and pay the bill in our own time without someone waiting for us to work out our group payment under pressure. We were happy to sit outside where it was quieter and not as brightly lit as inside.

The prices too seem to have gone up significantly and there were no wines on offer for under $100/bottle.

We still enjoyed the night but feel something has been lost with the move from Rochester which was really special.

No vibe. No dim sum on dinner menu. Limited items on menu.

Ambience is really not great.

Service was spotty - brought things out one at a time rather than together

Food is not as good as expected of min jiang. A customer made noise while eating. Service staff were attentive but I feel were there to make sure we buy more drinks.

I go there mainly because I love the beautiful interiors by Ernesto bedmar at this MinJiang Dempsey outlet. I eat with all my senses rather than solely my stomach. Of course the food must be good, but restaurants need to go beyond just food especially when we eat out so much these days. I truly appreciate nice ambiance which is very hard to find in Chinese restaurants in Singapore. This Dempsey Min Jiang, Madame Fan and Imperial Treasures Super Peking Duck (at Paragon only is the lighting nice and dim, the other outlet is ugly and way too bright! ) are the only top 3 favorite Chinese restaurants of mine

The space is lovely but the food unspectacular. Nothing stood out. The Peking Duck could be improved. The skin wasn’t as crisp as we would have liked and the meat was not tasty. Service was polite.

The restaurant should offer a lazy Susan for big tables when the diners want to serve themselves instead of having the wait staff apportion the food.

Should not charge for iced water by forcing diners to order a bottle of still water for $12.

Previously, no charge for hot water and now charging $1.20.

Food portion is slightly small in view of price charged.

Food was excellent but would really like to see duck as a starter as I went with a veggie and so couldn’t try it. Service was excellent and the ambience perfect. Must try the beef cubes.

The new Ming Jiang Dempsey situated in a lush of green with big glass window around the main dinning hall . Natural lights shone through the glass window which made the resturant feel the summer beauty and created a cozy vibrant ambience. The service is excellent with warm and sincere smile on the managers and staffs’ faces . The food was delicious . We had tried their mee pok, prawns , appetizers ( crispy eel, drunken chickens) & signatured dish “chef made Tofu with crab meats veggies”etc... all were delicious 😋
Lovely place for gathering , birthday dinner etc.

You can be assured of a great dining experience at Min Jiang. The new branch at Dempsey is particularly lovely because of its garden setting. Food as usual is top notch and service is impeccable. Staff are polite, attentive and knowlegeable about the menu.

Good food.
Specially the pickles at the beginning, and the nest soup.

The building Is new, very high ceilings, looses intimacy. Looks good for business environment.

Dum Sim Platter was ok only.
Bar did the job well.

Beautiful decor and interiors. Artistically plated dishes delivered well balanced tastes. These visual presentations raised expectations for the overall dining experience. Sadly, service standards did not match. It was functional, akin to a generic local restaurant. Not bad service, but certainly not what you would expect of a high-end restaurant. Also, the noise level was not comfortable as sounds bounced off the hard furnishings. They could easily rectify this by hiding some insulation above the ceiling beams or the wall panels. There is an opportunity for improvement. Hopefully they will, as the food itself did not disappoint.

Third time here for lunch. Service this time was much better. Different staff from previous lunch. Lobster noodle stood out the most. Lobster was fresh and the noodles very flavorful. Other than shortfalls with service occasionally, food is good

Far too noisy. Was there twice and the second time , a business lunch was bad. Service was terrible. Staff had to be called several times to pour tea for all. When told to portion and serve, he just dished it out onto our used plates. No change of plates or bowls. No portioning at the side. When guest asked what’s being served, staff gave the menu and told him to read!!

With sun shining in, the restaurant temperature is too hot.
During the entire seating, plates wasn’t changed once.
Dim Sum were just ordinary tasting, in fact the dim sum platter was the worst of the lot .

Food was excellent. However, the restaurant really needs do something about front of house - restaurant is clearly understaffed as service was not as attentive as one would expect. It’s fine when you catch their attention, they are very nice about it. The issue is in doing so. There are times when there is absolutely no wait staff in the dining room. This is a real shame given the great food.

The lobster, the meat is a bit hard like a rubber and shortage of one cut that made us not easy to reach to eat the flesh.
The tang bao, not the best, not shiok enough if we use to compare with other restaurant.

We were a table of 4 at Min Jiang. Thought we'd try out the new outlet at Dempsey. We all ordered the Set Lunch A - 6 courses. Generally the food was very good, the sea perch was exceptionally delicious, however the Mee Sua I thought was a little boring. It was a very satisfying lunch, however, when I got home, I was very affected by the MSG. After speaking with the restaurant, they confirmed that they do use MSG in all their marinades. I was quite surprised as I haven't been affected like this in years (decades), but having said that, all 3 friends were OK. All in all, I would recommend this restaurant but not sure if I'd personally go again, because of the MSG. We spent $80 per person (no alcohol).

It was a bit too noisy for a business meeting. Compared to the last location at one Rochester this one is abit too casual and open. Would be good if you have smaller table for more privacy if it’s business setting. With the pricey menu not a lot of pple will just come to eat a casual lunch. It will usually be more catered for business meeting.

We had the Chef’s Platter, a Peking Duck (must preorder) in 2 courses, red bean pancake, mango sago, a bottle of wine and a cocktail.

The food is very very good. Restaurant is very nice, comfortable, plenty of parking out front.

One big negative though - we really dislike it when high spend restaurants charge $1.50 per person for warm water. The restaurant should on a discretionary basis waive this when the bill exceeds a certain amount. This would gain you so much goodwill for so little.

Food is alright. Turbot fish was rather expensive and the mini pumpkin iberico pork fried rice was too expensive for $18 each. Its an individual served inside a mini pumpkin with tiny cubes of pork.
