“A Quay to Enjoyment”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

I'm from JB in Malaysia, meaning Singapore is pretty much my backyard. This is one of my favourite places to visit. A blend of modern and classic scenery and architecture, no shortage of food outlets and if you're up for it, you can take a cruise along the Singapore River from Clarke Quay. Wonderful way to spend an evening in Singapore. It can get very crowded at nights, so if you're not a fan of crowds I'd suggest to go in the evenings and grab dinner elsewhere. It'd be worse on the weekends, but if this is your scene, go for it and have a helluva time!

“Good old Singapore architecture”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The old traders houses are well preserved- it's refreshing after so many skyscrapers. The open air terraces/restaurants offer fresh sea food at reasonable prices. A nice feeling of the past.

“Midnight delight”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

If you're new around the area, this is the place the office people go when they knock off work. See the tall buildings around the area? They work there! Mostly filled with adults who can hold their liqour, so not a good place to find drunkards. You need to go to Zouk past 2am for that!

“NEVER ORDER SEAFOOD AT ANY RESTAURANT. BE CAREFUL.”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

So many restaurants and bars and boat quay will make you feel you are away from home. Lovely alfresco dining along the river.

One thing to remember. Please avoid to go to any seafood restaurants, especially market priced seafood. You will be fainted when your bill came to your table. The taste is horrible and it will be more expensive than other nice seafood restaurant like Jumbo, Palm Beach and so on.

If you still wanna go, please be careful.
