Mouth Restaurant opened its third and largest outlet on 9 August 2010, in remembrance of early Chinese immigrants to Singapore. The newly-opened Mouth Restaurant is located along South Bridge Road, where most of the early immigrants lived and eked out a living as coolies. It occupies five and a half shophouse space bordering China Square Central - an especially significant and meaningful location as these shophouses used to be the living quarters of Chinese immigrants.
Mouth Restaurant was first established in the 1980s in Chinatown Point to serve the increasing number of Hong Kong immigrants leaving the territory for Singapore as a result of the impending 1997 handover from Britain to China. The Chinese name of Mouth Restaurant, Di Mao Guan, was derived from the Cantonese phrase Tae Mow Tong - a reference to the street food stalls in early Hong Kong popular with labourers who were used to squatting while having their meals. In Cantonese, Tae means "ground", Mow means "squat" and Tong refers to "stall". Mow also sounds like the English word "mouth" and hence, Mouth Restaurant was born.
You can find us at two different locations, each of which has its own unique flavor:
1. Mouth Restaurant, Chinatown Point
Conveniently located at the Chinatown MRT station, the Mouth Restaurant at Chinatown Point is the first and authentic teahouse concept in Singapore. The mouth's quaint design evokes fond memories of the good old days and is a great yum cha place for family gathering. Mouth's handmade Hong Kong dim sum and authentic Cantonese cuisine have long been lauded as one of the great dim sum and Cantonese restaurants in Singapore since 1989.
2) Mouth Restaurant, China Square Central
An elegantly decorated restaurant in a modern and plush setting, Mouth Restaurant at China Square Central is located in the heart of the business district. With its capacity of 22 tables and VIP rooms, the Chinese restaurant is a great venue for corporate dinners, birthday celebrations, cosy wedding banquets, ROM and yum cha.
