Visited the original branch in Geylang. Made reservations from hotel at 830pm on Tuesday night. Upon arrival at 830pm, the maître d' didn't care a bit we had a reservation. He was scrambling to find us (a party of 3) a table. Was going to put us next to the driveway of the restaurant where the in-house valet parks cars... More

Personally feel that it's a little too pricey. Be ready to spend at least sgd80 per person as the dishes are not cheap. However, food was good but can be better. Service was okay, toilets were acceptable. Mainly flocked by tourists (explains why it's pricey). Locals will tell you there're other places which serves better chilli crab at a lower... More

This is bound to be debatable but I believe the Geylang No Signboard chilli crabs is still the best chilli crabs I've had in Singapore and indeed anywhere else. The first time I tried this was in 2011 and have gone back in August 2013 while on a business trip. We were worried whether it was still as good as... More

They do the best chili crab in town. Try the flavor of the egg-based sauce with the fried mantou it's awesome. I have been to 3 No signboard - one on riverside, one at Clarky Guay and another one like a big street vendor restaurant. All good!

We chose this restaurant at geylang to taste the famous chilli crab as recommended as the 'local' experience, rather than the 'international.' Our taxi driver explained there were 2 restaurants in singapore. The local restaurant would be more spicy whereas the international would adjust for the weak tourists! Both myself and my husband love out food hot so the choice... More

We wanted to try this out after hearing so much about it. We showed about around 7:30pm and did not have to wait for a table, though I think we got one of the last ones available. The service was initially good, drink orders taken fast, then a bit pressured to order food. We ordered salted egg crab, pepper prawns,... More

Food was delicious, we had the chili crab, pepper crab, small fried rice, bottle of water, one tiger beer. The 2 crab were $65 ea. the bill totalled... More

We went to the Esplanade outlet, just for the record. The food is good. The price is bit steep at S$200+ for a peppered crab, a steamed fish, a veggy dish and fried rice. The services are par for an average chinese restaurant.
