We were told that this was the best place for chili crab, a Singapore specialty we wanted to try. It was very busy and the food going past looked good. The chili crab was tasty by very messy and in our opinion far too much work for the meager amount of actual edible matter. We also had to ask three... More

Definitely not the best seafood restaurant that serve chilli crab. They have this time restriction and force you out of the place within 2 hours. I dont know who likes to be rushed when comes to eating. Paid so much for company team event and ended up have to rush to finish our food and drinks. Go somewhere else.

A tour guide recommended me to visit this restaurant to try their famous Singapore Chilli Crabs, and I was so impressed that I returned with some friends the next day. Also tried the other variation called black pepper crabs which are just as delicious. Pricing is pretty reasonable considering the serving size and their prime location along the river in... More

Outdoor dining, generous portions and great chili crab and pepper crab. The center spinning lazy susan makes sharing a meal fun and delicious. Don't wear a light colored top -- the meal can be messy! Dig in and enjoy.

We visited the branch at East coast Park with "beach" views! Great location, buzzy atmosphere in packed restaurant. Had to wait (not long) for a table, so maybe it's worth making a reservation. Food is served up each dish as it's ready and all dishes were faultless during our visit. Huge prawns, perfect scallops, spicy dishes were super spicy, all... More

Unless you like heat I would recommend the cracked pepper crab, or any of the other items on the menu. If you "eat the heat" you will need lot's of Tiger Beer. Which is served by the Tiger Beer young woman in uniform:) You need to make reservations early for the Riverwalk location. These are very busy restaurants.

I prefer the Head office Branch at the East Coast Beach. You can enjoy a stroll along the beach. Personally I enjoy the crabs the most... Pepper crabs, Chilli crabs and the best of all plain Steam crabs( please ask for ones with Roes)
