Interesting and busy dining institution in Singapore's Geyling area. Big range of seafood dishes. Good service but not cheap. Seems like a popular place for the locals.

Famous institution for crab lives up to the reputation. Great service especially from the beer lady who keeps you Tiger cold! The chilli crab sauce is amazing and the black pepper version was arguably even better. Great vibe & mainly locals.

The general area is a little out of town and is not as interesting a locale as I'd expected. Supposed to be a red light area but I just saw Buddhist temples.

We had a 25 minute wait for a table on a very crowded Saturday night, but it was worth every minute. The setup is open air and like a traditional Singaporean food stall, albeit on a huge scale. I counted at least 30 tables and stopped. There was a VIP section. The Chinese waitress was enthusiastic and spoke some English... More

Good place to try the pepper crab. The service is so so but the food is good. We tried the pepper crab which have 1.8kg heavy. We don't have those mud crab that heavy in Hong Kong. The price is acceptable but not cheapest we eat in Singapore. The environment is like traditional Singaporean food stall.

We came here to try the Chili Crab, Black Pepper Crab and a few other of Singapore's signature seafood dishes. The food was excellent - the above mentioned crabs, black pepper bullfrog, garlic shrimp, and fried rice were all great. We were with a group of people, and this was a good place for a group. The service could have... More

Organised a family chinese new year celebration. Night was going well until a man started harassing the kids table. Next thing we know he has run off with one of the kids ipads. Theft happens and its a rough part of town, the really disappointing part was the complete lack of care factor from the restaurant. You would be forgiven... More

The restaurant has excellent views of the bay and prompt attentive staff. I had the Chilli Crab which was very tasty, in particular the claws. The sauce was quite mild but very flavoursome. I would recommend, especially when combined with the views.

We had visited to No Signboard Seafood once before, and enjoyed the food and decided to return with family for dinner on New Years Eve... Big mistake. Many of the prices on the menu had been changed (new labels tapes over) which sent the lower priced Chilli Crab to over 3 times its normal price. Of course this kind of... More

I have been waiting for a long time for the Singapore Chilli Crab! It's amazing! It's quite pricy but it's really worth it. They cooked the crab with a stew so you're not only eating the big chunk of the crab but also eating the crab meat in the sauce. It came with some steam buns and they are so... More

The restaurant is nice and the staff attentive. Give great advices from the menu. I took chili and pepper lobster. Since I'm not so used to open the shelfs I was happy the staff provided some help. The food was very good and I really enjoyed it. Finally the price tag comes very heavy. Not sure if it was worth... More

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
Geylang
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city center, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colorful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
