This restaurant came highly recommended by friends. We had the chilli crab and pepper crab which were such large portions. The flavour was authencially singaporean , rich in falvours. Must order the buns to soak up the sauces of the chilli crab ! A recommended dish is the steamed bamboo clams which were so delicate, sweet and steamed just right... More

Food is great (and a bit pricey but acceptable for the quality). One incident with the service. I ordered a glass of Tiger Beer Draft and ordered in English. The waitress is from mainland China and mistakenly thought "draft" as "扎/zha" which means a pitcher/jar to mainland Chinese. When we declined to take the pitcher, the waitress came and argued...

We had high recommendations to eat at the Long Beach. Was not disappointed with the Chili Crab…beware it is very messy….but very good. Also everything costs on the table, i.e. bowl of peanuts on table when we arrived, small hand towels in plastic wrapper, each bun with the crab. Lots of nickel and dime stuff. Nothing of this was explained... More

We had good chilli crab here, but Jumbo Seafood is better. The crab was also only lukewarm and arrived quickly after ordering, suggesting it was already cooked and they just poured hot sauce on the cold crab...but it was still yummy. Mantao buns also nice and big. My friend had the chilli chicken and it was only OK. Wine is... More

Met a local friend here for dinner as we were passing through Singapore. First time for chili crab. The food was very good. The setting is a no frills, relaxed, casual eatery, apparently popular with ex pats. Just a good place to kick back with a beer and enjoy some decent seafood.

Simply amazing sea food of all kinds from fish to prawns, shells to crabs and oysters. The crab in Singaporean sauce made using eggs was so good with the round bread. One will have to visit this restaurant more than once for sure to enjoy their vast variety of dishes. The shells they served was one of the best I... More

Had a simply amazing seafood dinner here while in Singapore a few weeks back. The seating is all open air and food is served pretty much family style. There are prix fixe options, which I recommend. We had a combination of prawns, fish (grouper I think), and the pepper crab that they are famous for. Everything is fresh (they pull... More

This is how good as it gets. The Sri Lankan mud crabs are cooked either chili- or peppered style. You can't go wrong with either. Before devouring the crabs l, we enjoyed the drunken prawn, which was equally good as the crabs. After the crabs, we had some Merang Pork Rib and yes almost forgot the steamed fish. Wow -... More

I have been to Singapore many times for both business and vacation time and until the past year, Jumbo was by far the best seafood restaurant in Singapore. I feel that Long Beach has now surpassed them in the quality of food, choice of dishes and overall service, plus it's good value for money as it doesn't just target the... More

The creator of Chili crab. So must eat chili crab which is a bit spicy but sweet. My favorite food is raw drunken prawn which is live prawn in hard liquor. Red grouper cooked in Hong Kong style is also one of the best in Singapore. Not very kind services though.
