“One place to taste Singapore's best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Everything that one might want to taste of Singapore's cuisine is here: carrot cake, chicken rice, sambal sting ray and of course, chilli crabs.

We were there at around 7PM on a weeknight so there were lots of tables still available. Make sure you have a tissue pack with you which serves dual purpose: 1) you leave the tissue pack on the table to reserve the table for you and 2) wipe the chilli crab sauce from your hands (the stalls do not provide free tissue to diners).

We tried the chilli crab with fried mantou, chicken rice and sugarcane juice. I initially planned for us to dine at Jumbo or at No Reservations but I figured that Makansutra will give us more variety and value for money.

TIP: Be there early to increase your chances of getting an available table especially if you're a big group. Stay until 8PM to catch the Marina Bay Sands light show.

“Treat to the taste buds and eyes.!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Makansutra at Glutton's Bay according to me is one of the best places to enjoy seafood dinner with family. Been here twice and had a wonderful experience. The view of the bay and the breeze sets in the mood to indulge in the steamy smoky delicacies served. Only turn off to this place is its popularity which brings in a lot of crowd especially at weekends. At times one has to wait for a long time to get a table, but once the food arrives, its all worth!
