Good Nonya Laksa but has lost its charm

This is still my favourite of the Nonya Laksa stalls in Singapore, although with the recent renovations and modernisation of the place it has lost much of its charm. Orders are now placed at a counter and you are given an automatic beeper to alert you when it's time to collect your orders. Laksa is... read more

I have heard people kept on talking about Katong laksa, saying it represents Singapore Laksa. As a Singaporean, this is my first time trying the famous Laksa. My husband and i went to katong, wanted to try the so called Best Laksa in Singapore. Also heard that this stall has defeated one of the celebrity chef in a challenge. With... More

I have been living in this neighbourhood for about 20 years now, but I haven't gone there in at least 5 years. I recently took some overseas relatives to try the famous Katong Laksa, and boy was I disappointed. As a Katong institution, I hope the owners can re-think the style of business to uphold the standards of Katong Laksa.... More

Boasts of serving the best Laksa in Singapore, something which even Gordon Ramsey of Masterchef fame, agreed. Otak is another interesting appetizer you can try alongwith grilled fish cake smeared with spices and wrapped in a banana leaf. Seating is quite basic as its located on the footpath.

The Laksa here is my favourite in Singapore. The soup is great and coconutty, the prawns and cockles are fresh and the noodles just nice to eat. The gravy they use is not too spicy but you can put a bit more if you want to fire it up. The Otah is always very fresh and has a great curry... More

We brought overseas friends and family to try Katong's famous Laksa. The FAMOUS laksa that beat Gordon Ramsey. Everyone was looking forward to it. We ordered 3 bowls of laksa, 2 nasi lemak and some drinks. While deciding on the drinks, my mom asked what other drinks were there, the lady at the counter shouted to her "Look at the... More

I was at the Queensway mall outlet. First time to have a Katong laksa (served with a spoon) and wow! Kind of regret that I didn't order the large bowl to begin with and ended up eating two small bowls in a row. The cockles might look scary but tasted nice and fresh when placed in laksa.

238 Katong has many restaurants and we went to the one in a mall. Myself and 2 other family members never ate laksa before so wanted to try and see what the buzz is about at this place. I ordered a large bowl and finished it up in 10minutes. It was very tasty and flavorful. Since we haven't try any... More

It is barely hyperbole to say that we flew in to Singapore to get a bowl of this food of the gods. Please go,out of your way to try this place. I dream about it.

I tried the laksa again after 2 years break. I was disappointed that even though the place has been modernized, the quality/ taste has dropped quite considerably. The gravy is no longer 'lemak' and no longer fragrant. Now its a bit like eating stale watery food. Even the curry leaves used are certainly not fresh. Will give this place a... More
