Poor quality of the food, especially the chilli crab is not fresh at all, the sauce was way too sweet and taste was flat. Not Recommended, if you are looking for Singapore chilli crab, go to somewhere else. The overpriced of the food, the poor ambience. I will never go back to this place.

Had a ball, got really messy, lucky for the big raincoat like bibs they give you. Best mud crab I've ever had. Worth every cent.

We don't mind spending money on good food. But sometimes, you feel was it really worth it ?
Well harry's was so-so. Food was good without being great. Crab - ? I found the prawns were better. So go there, try it but don't expect 5star quality. Just 5Star prices.
Will i go back - probably not.

Over-priced ordinary food, waiters who up-sell. Surely their are crabs in Sydney less than 1.5 kg
Save your money and fly Tiger to Singapore instead

I am from Singapore, and thought I would try Harry's SINGAPORE chilli crabs. Not only was it the most expensive crabs I've ever eaten, it was the worst.
The worst hawker centres in Singapore serve better-tasting crabs than here, and at a fraction of the price.
We had the chilli crab and a pepper crab, and a kangkong dish, and they were all terribly cooked. The chilli sauce was thick and glucky, the crab tasted nothing like the 'Singapore Chilli Crab' it boasted on their advertising and the kangkong was fibrous and tasted raw.

What annoyed us even further was the underhanded ways the waiters used. At least twice during our meals, a waiter would come up with a basket of roti and offered them to us, in such a way that made us think that it was complimentary.

But no, we were charged for the roti that we didn't even want to order in the first place.

All up, the bill came up to be nearly $200 for 2 people! I suggest Harry and his cooks go to Singapore and take a few cooking lessons from the hawkers over there.
