First time trying this dish. I am not sure if I understood the label of the fish in the menu, but the dish which was served eventually was not what I had in mind. The noodles were a little wet, and had a slight tomatoey ketchup taste to it, quite unlike what I would expect from stir fried noodles.
What you see is what you get, noodles with egg bits and vegetables. The beancurd skin were great though. There are probably better dishes on the menu.

Rating 4/10

First time eating at DaXi, which appears to be a place that serves taiwanese food. The batter coating the oyster mushrooms were fried to crisps, and coated with salt and other spices. Very satisfying for a mushroom lover like myself 😋

Hearty dish of a huge oyster omelette. You can get the distinctive taste the oysters in each bite of the omelette. Arguably a marked improvement over most oyster omelettes that you get at the hawker centres, but this is to be expected given the price point.

A very comforting dish of fried beancurd cubes (purportedly homemade based on how it's labelled in the menu) that's drizzled with a thick savour sauce. Best paired with a bowl of rice to absorb some of that sauce.

Rating 7.9/10

We ordered the patin fish to be served mala style (as recommended by the friendly waitress). The fish was fairly huge, the meat was flaky and succulent with a good bite to it as all fresh fish do. This also came with beancurd skin, cabbage and some sprouts. The flavour profile of the dish was complemented by the distinct char grilled taste of the fish skin. This was on promotion and the total cost about $50 after gst and service charge. Rating: 8.1/10

Do note that the spiciness level is fixed as the establishment purportedly wants its patrons to experience the authentic flavour profile (the phrase used was 原味). That said, one need not be scared by how red this dish turned out as the spice level was at a pleasant and tolerable level - for someone who generally orders 小辣 for mala xiangguo . The staff were friendly and service was prompt too. Will most definitely recommend this place.

This is supposedly one of their specialties. Dry spicy chicken that's topped with mounds of red chilli and chilli seeds and other spices. Unfortunately, the dish was too spicy for me, but I can understand the appeal of it; for reference - if any of you had the dried crispy duck at yunnans, this is 3x more spicy. $14 for a generous portion.

This was really good. It's sweet and sour pork which Singaporeans and familiar with, that's fried with a crispy batter over it. In between the batter and the meat, there's this thick and somewhat mochi-esque layer that adds to the mouth feel. $14 for the entire plate, which was very reasonable due to the generous portion. Rating 7.5/10. Would most definitely order this again 😜

Place doesn't accept credit cards. But you can pay with cash, nets or paynow.

Fried eggplants with thick savoury sauce over it, rather different from the eggplants with sweet dark sauce that I have at local places or hawker centres. Cost $10

Crispy and slightly chewy, with a mouth feel that's very much like prata, albeit not as flaky. It's fairly flavourful on its own because of the scallions. However, one can dip it in any chilli oil sauce for an additional flavour profile. Should eat it while it's hot. Costs $3 Rating 7/10

The final course and dessert of the deep duck secrets buffet course meal. This simple and unassuming bowl was the highlight of the entire meal. The beancurd had a good balance between the homely natural taste of beancurd with a slight hint of sweetness from the osthmantus and goji berry. I will come back to this restaurant just for this dish. Rating for this dish alone 8.7/10.

The rest of the meal was not too bad; do note that only the Peking duck dish is free flow and that the deep duck secrets offering is only valid till end of June 2022.

The batter was crispy and flaky, but overpowered the taste of the oysters which were average sized. Rating: 6/10

Third time eating at this branch, but this is the first time ordering this dish. The mushrooms were a lot more flavourful than Yun nan's other mushroom dish that's fried and served with chillies. Would recommend the dish to anyone who enjoys mushrooms.
