Food is overpriced, queues are long and staff are rude. There is a queue every evening , however I feel there are far better choices more value for money. Think twice before going there

East Coast branch
(-) Location is rather secluded and quite on a weekday. No tissues provided.

(+) Attentive staff. Huge crabs, very fresh and tasty. Such a feast! We had the claypot beehoon crab, chilli crab and pork ribs with egg yolk. Yum!

The best best crab bee hoon & butter crab in Singapore!! Have to go early to queue! Extremely long queues everyday so be prepared to wait at least 45 mins for a table. Food takes alittle long to arrive so do not go hungry, eat something light before going there. Absolutely worth the long queue & waiting time!

They have the best crab dishes which I have tasted. I am a soup person; therefore, I love the Crab Beehon Noodle. Try order Crab cooked in salted egg. The butter crab is awesome as well; the dish comes with buns which one uses to dip the sauce...yummy. Also, around the restaurant, one can try out the best durian, if he or she can stand the smell. Really, it smells like methane gas, but once it is in your mouth, it tastes different totally. There are true hawkers across the crab restaurant. We found this place as we have relatives who live in Singapore. Do not go to Lau Pa Sal unless you have an iron stomach. The Chicken satay is a must to avoid. My children had diarrhea after ingesting the Chicken Satay on the sticks. It is a tourist trap. Please be-careful.
