Good but not worth the travel

We wanted to eat chilli crabs and this restaurant is listed in the top 5 so off we went to Geylang Street. We rode the MRT all the way to Aljunied and walked quite a bit under the hot sun, the restaurant was informal and empty because we came early for lunch.

The chili crab is superb especially the buns that comes with it (buns cost 2.50 SGD). I enjoyed every bit of food we ate in there. We ate Stirfry Beancurd, Baby Squid and Yang chow fried rice also and they are all good!

To get to this franchise, you are best to go to Aljunied MRT station. From there it is only a short 15min walk away. This branch of the No Signboard chain is no frills, but clean and comfortable. This branch is not the fancy upper market restaurant like the East Coast one. We went during lunch time and was promptly... More

The best chilli crab in Singapore! Their salted egg yolk crab and white pepper crab (concocted there) are also really good. While other restaurants use fake chilli sauce, No Signboard has a flavorful broth for their chilli crab- perfect for dipping those mantous!

Really informal and relaxed, not at all posh very down to earth, but the food speaks for itself - delicious , crab was wonderful, and the chilli scallops exceptional. Incredible how they coul make brocolli taste so good too. I also had some little buns that were warm and so very very scrummy. Well worth the visit.

We went to this venue as we googled best chili crab in Singapore and this was one of the top 5. An unassuming venue but we enjoyed the pepper crab, the chili crab was sweet and the sauce was pleasant but lacked depth. Steamed vegetables were fine and service was ok. The women seemed happier employees than the male worker... More

I enjoyed the Chilli Crab and two cold Tiger Beers. My advice is to simply accept that this will be a messy meal. I used my fingers to get as much of the crab from the shell, claws and legs that I could. the meal came to S$80

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.

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. 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

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.
