Pick your own seafood at the live section! Great taste and fresh, not forgetting cheap too! We had (huge) garoupa, crabs, gong-gong, prawns and 2 kind of vegetables for 8 pax. Total up to SGD95 only! The universal picture menu on board at the live section, you just point whichever you like. Simple ordering system ;) Ask for table near... More

Although the seafood was okay only but it was really good to experience eating there especially if you go with tour and they will bring you to nearby kueh lapis shop and try the cakes and buy it. It's really famous place for seafood! Can try :)

The food are too spicy and the service staff service standards are poor. The request for drinks take too long to arrive and forgotten and need regular reminding. Houseflies and other insects are found even in the VIP room.

The only reason to dine here is if it is somekind of business dinner/lunch, where being together with your large group are more important than the the food - and that someone else is paying for the exorbitant bills. No food to recommend. the fish are fresh, but that's just about it. the vegs are just terrible. And make sure... More

Only tours will bring foreigners to that outlet. The food was so-so. Curry doesn't taste like curry. Vege were tasteless as if it was just steamed on boiled water. The egg starchy soup was ok with little bit taste. We were served with pathetic little lobster. Not worth visiting.

It's very nice and the seafood was juicy and fresh. For seafood lovers, this is the place to go. However, get ready to bring more Cash cause good food does not come cheap and furthermore, this place is congested with tourist so expect the price to be a bit more than average.

Quite disappointing as we have heard so much about this restaurant but the food was not up to standard. Price wise, not value for the food.

Went to this place for 7 course lunch under the tour itinerary. The baby lobsters were pathetic. Only enjoyed the fish dish. Felt like a ordinary lunch rather than seafood lunch.

Heard a lot about this place through the blog and beside it was golden prawn 555 and a kuih lapis outlet for tourist. Both belong to the same Singaporean boss. Choose your live seafood at the entrance and ask what flavours you prefer, weigh and confirm and choose your table. The restaurant was built on stilt on a fishing pond.... More
