    There were banana flies hovering around our table. But nobody came to remove them.

    Strives to balance the menu between traditional Chinese and popularised Western Chinese. Food is lovely but service disjointed - it comes when it's ready. The ambience suffers from the whole of the hotel in that mixed carpet and marble flooring just doesn't work in bars and restaurants. Wine list is only fair. However I would return if staying in the RC which is highly likely!

    Very tasty food and service was prompt. We reserved a table after reading much on Google about Li Yen and managed to get a table on Friday. Upon arriving, service was very prompt and we were seated at a nice table with bench-like seat which definitely something I enjoyed very much. Food quality, taste and presentation is definitely 5/5 and we hope to be back again in our next visit.

    We ordered seafood porridge and when it was served the waitress said it was seafood porridge , but was served seafood soup ,after a while we explained to the waitress that they sent the wrong order, they acknowledged and admitted their mistake yet told us they would still have to charge us for the seafood soup since we have already consumed it as they said if they were to send it back to the kitchen their ' sifu' would enquire and they would get in trouble. I think it is standard F&B practice to void the wrong order especially since it is your mistake, things like this goes without saying, wife and i were honestly quite speechless that this happened, especially at a restaurant in a 5 star hotel. I really do hope the manager sees to it

    Service must be improved. Waitress wasn’t enthusiastic and had to be asked about how some of the dishes are prepared. Did not even offer options of how second course for Peking duck could be prepared. Have had Chinese food at restaurants like Lili in Peninsula Paris where the service made LiYen look amateurish.

    Was happy until payment time. I am a Marriot Bonvoy member and I asked if there is any discounts for member and the lady cashier said yes but said I need to have the app. I dont recall my membership number and had a hard time registering on the app and during this time the lady cashier showed her annoyance openly by loudly by throwing her stuff at the till. I was so mad that I told her to keep the discount and we paid the full bill. Totally unacceptable for Ritz. Other than that food and ambiance and other service staff were very attentive as there was just two tables that afternoon.

    My last visit was almost 2 years ago. Used to frequent Li Yen for the good dim sum and great service. This visit to my disappointment dim sum variety is greatly reduced though the taste is still good. Service is bad with 2 or 3 people serving 8 tables and a few private rooms. Waited forever for my dessert and bill.

    They couldn’t even find my booking. A dish that we ordered didn’t come for awhile even after reminding the waitress and finally she told us they ran out of the dish. There were at times no waitresses around when we need them although there was only us at the restaurant.
