“One word: "Crab!"”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

For neighborhood coffee shop in Singapore the prices are a little steep..... (still reasonable enough at sate of posting).

But! The quality of the crab is fantastic!!

To be honest I treated myself to a dacedent meal of just a nice big salt baked crab and three bottle of tiger beer (my heart!!!), and it was fantastic to the last bite.

Couple of advice you are going there for the salted crab, order in advance if possible as it takes awhile to cook. Also go for the ones with roe!!! Not good for health but boy does it taste good!

“Local seafood at its best”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Ok, the title might be an exaggeration, but it has to applauded for their consistency, and that's something one doesn't always get at these local coffee shop joints.
It ranks among my betters experiences at seafood joints at coffee shops.
I recommend their Mee Goreng, deep-fried prawns with salted egg yolk sauce, the crabs in black pepper (chilli crab here is only average), hot plate bean curd, and fish head curry with extra egg plant.

Order the home made ice lemon tea from the coffee guys while you're having your meal. Super good!

“Yummy Restuarant”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This Resturant is located at upper Bukit Timah Road. Below "Hockien Hui Kuan" near Shell Petrol station! You can came here by Bus , Taxi or Car. There are few discs I like most! The Currey Fish head is spicy but very tasty! The Pepper crabs are nice and Yummy! The hot plate Bean curd is wonderful! The "Prawn saurce" Chicken is crispy and tasty. You need to have booking in advance if you can after 7pm , hardly to find a seat (or table) and waiting for 1 hour. Recommending come to this resturant before 6.30pm. If you are not Singaporean , Please planing ahead before coming to this place! Please take note this resturant do not have any air conditioning!
