I remember how this place used to have this killer white pepper crab....and unfortunately, that will just remain in my memory.

The place has lost its edge.....white pepper crab is nothing close as what it used to be...

I know some prefer the chili crab at Long beach or Jumbo, but to me no sign board at Geylang serves the best of chili crab. Crab is fresh and the seasoning is just right. The fried rice and fried vegetables are also quite nice.

My husband and I arrived at the restaurant at around 9ish, after we checked in to our hotel. We ordered white pepper crab, steam prawns, steam garlic lobster, abalone sashimi and stir fried kang kong. The white pepper crab was small and a tad too hot for our liking. Not sure if this is supposedly the 'right' taste . . . but doubt I will order this dish again. Other seafood dishes were so so. There are so many seafood and zi char restaurants in Singapore, I guess I will give other restaurants a go.

We had chili crab during our recent visit, it was $80 per kg plus 10% services charge. To be perfectly honest, the dish is great. But after later visit to other hawker centres, where we again had crabs, I'd say having crabs at No Signboard is fairly overrated and not worth it.

At hawker centre, you can have same quality and taste for $50 per kg and no service charges. And more likely those hawker centres are closer to where you stay at nights.

I was here with a friend and it's quite pricey for 2 people. We ordered 3 dishes: one chilli crab, salted fish fried rice and eggplant. The chilli crab was really yummy, and the bread to dip the sauce was very good too. However, when the waitress brought out the rice, she told us they got the rice wrong, instead of salted fish they gave us yang chau fried rice, which was cheaper. I told her that was fine but she had to reflect it in our bill but she didn't seem to understand us. Another waitress came over and said we ordered salted fish so we had to pay the salted fish price and insisted that the dish on our table was salted fish fried rice. I told her we were happy to pay for what we received, and that the other waitress informed us about the wrong order. The 2nd waitress gave the 1st one a deadly glare and took the dish away. She then returned with what we swore was the same dish she took away a moment ago, with some tiny little fried fish on top. That was totally dishonest!!! And their signature eggplant was just some fried-slightly-coated-in-batter eggplant, i.e nothing special.
Will I come back? The crab was yummy, but no I wont be back because of their service. It's also quite pricey; $95 for 3 dishes, food only, no drink no wet towel.
Tip: bring your own tissues and then wash your hands in the bathroom, the wet towels they provide are useless.
