Gim Tim in the 1970s

Gim Tim was founded by the late Mr Oh Joo Chong in 1975. Back then, it started first as a catering business in a kampong located at the old Nee Soon road. Whenever there are weddings, rites or any occasions, Gim Tim will be there to cater for its neighbours.

In 1989, the late Mr Oh decided it was time to have a brick and mortar space for customers to stay connected. Gim Tim Restaurant at Ang Mo Kio Block 157 was thus born and is still around today.

Focus on using only the freshest & highest quality ingredients, Gim Tim has served generations with its delightful feast of Singaporean Hokkien and Cantonese cuisines. Some of the well-loved Chinese dishes include Fish Maw Soup, Braised Duck with Sea Cucumber, Roasted Peking Duck, Crispy Sotong Chicken, Braised Pork Belly with Buns and Fried Yam Ring. Gim Tim is perhaps one of the last remaining restaurants in Singapore that still serves the authentic “Buddha Jump Over The Wall” and this signature dish has won much acclaim amongst gastronomes.

For the years to come, Gim Tim will continue to serve up time-honored menus and we warmly welcome you to come by and enjoy the delectable cuisines.
