Good Chili Crabs

The Mother of all chili crabs, I just had to give it a try. I wouldn't say it's the best I've had, but it is definitely one of the best! Their gravy is known to be more tomato-based. I like how I could just drink up the gravy, though I thought it was a bit too bland for the crab.... read more

Highly recommended by a local produced television program aired on Sunday via CNA; and made a reservation for dinner that very day; but ended up with disappointment. Did not expect much service but it was rather bad! Expected great dishes as they were Roland's family recipes but majorly disappointed! Had better black sauce prawns and yam ring, elsewhere. Worst, we... More

Frankly, just average! From the service (given a small table for 8 even though reservation was made); and the food (truly over-rated - not worth to go again)! Two of the signature dishes were major let down - the "black sauce prawns" was salty; the soup-based for the "crab bee-hoon soup" was not rich enough. And, the custard pancake was... More

Can life get better than chilli crab and tiger beer? Best I have ever had and with 800 gm of crab I did not go away hungary.

Where to get good chili crabs??? Whenever family members or friends ask us about Chili Crabs, we'll unanimously agree - Roland! We love bringing our families here to satisfy our crab cravings. Because it's that good, we'll usually call in advance to make a reservation and let them know what we'll order to ensure we have the seafood we ordered.... More

This is not a cheap restaurant, but the quality is superb. We had crisp Fried Baby Sqid - delicious. 1/2 a duck (as good as in Beijing). 1 Crab - the sauce was superb. This would have been enough for 3, we were only 2

Family and I frequent this place for its chili crabs. One of the best in Singapore IMO. Tend to be sweet which suites my taste buds. Typical neighbourhood restaurant with average ambiance and service. Convenient location too. Overall, fuss-free nicely priced dinner. Excellent for family outings.

The gravy is good with fried bun(mantou) Service - good Ambience - it was a weekday hence less crowd - very good Generally it is a good choice if you happen... More

When u don't mind the actual restaurant surroundings & only care about the food, I suggest to go & try this place. The building is quite old & from the outside, furniture inside the restaurant screams 80's Chinese restaurant kind of aura. However, the food is really good. Chilli crab & fried mantau are highly recommended! Squid with salt &... More

Cons: Chilli crab that did not taste very good. This is of course a response preference but I believe the creator of a dish doesn't mean it stays the best. The restaurant was obviously struggling to cope with a near full house because it was difficult to get the attention of an order taker plus the food took a long... More
