Description: New Ubin Seafood's beginnings can be traced to the offshore island of Pulau Ubin itself, where the restaurant opened in 1986 on the island's north shore. There, we had the pleasure of serving up kampong-style seafood to all who visited Ubin, developing a reputation for serving fresh, authentic and delicious seafood in an laid-back and relaxing environment. With acquisition of Pulau Ubin by the Singapore government in 1992, Ubin Seafood moved to the mainland, where we have been situated in several locations over the years (the most well known of which were the coffee shop at Commonwealth, Keppel Marina, Punggol Marina, 6th Avenue (Bukit Timah), Sin Ming industrial estate, and finally another hidden gem of a location at 63 Hillview Avenue (Bukit Batok). Here, we continue our tradition of serving our customers sumptuous and authentic Singaporean cuisine in a casual, family-friendly environment. Over the years, our culinary identity has developed and matured. Apart from the freshest seafood and traditional cze char fare, we are proud to present our own interpretation of other foods- a Singaporean-take on American, French, Italian and Indian cuisine. As such, our signature dishes include US Angus Rib-Eye Beef Steak and German-style Pork Knuckle. We were motivated to do this because it's what we, the people behind Ubin Seafood, love - and we know you will too. We look forward to welcoming you soon, and promise that it will be an unforgettable experience.

“Out of the way but Yummy good and go during Lunch”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Heard a lot of reviews about this restaurant esp the negatives about its overcrowding and service and the positives about its wok-hei and its ribeye steak so decided to drive to the heartlands to find out with 3 other good friends.

We ordered the following;
(1) the ribeye steak was very well done, soft, succulent and full of flavour (in fact better than some of the better steakhouses like Mortons),,and the beef lard was used to cook a free dish of beef fried rice (so - so as rice was moist whereas it should be crispy dry for fried rice). but the beef was yummy and definitely a signature.

(2) the hokkien prawn mee was robust, prawny and the stock was so delicious,,,,in fact, we had a 2nd helping of the prawn mee as we gobbled down the first helping in record time,,,,if we have to order some carbo, then this prawn mee would triumph over the fried rice.

(3) the hong kong kailan also had good wokhei, they chopped the leaves and fried with salted fish and the rest of the kailan stems were braised and then mixed together,,,,nice crunchy wholesome taste,,,,simple and nice,,,

(4) the crispy eggplant had a sourish, sweetish taste to it. First impression was good and tasty abit like those indonesian spiced drink but got a bit overwhelmed by the 4th or 5th bite,,,but good for a first taste....

(5) sambal petai,,,,the chef had taken the effort to remove the bitter bits and the petai was crunchy but the sambal was a bit lacking in fire,,,,

(6) Dont try the coffee,,,obviously no one comes here to drink coffee so coffee here worse than 3 in 1,,,,,

But come during lunch,,,,we sat in an aircon room and enjoyed good food and good service,,,weekends and dinners obviously can be a bit painful.

All in, we paid 130 and considered this to be relatively good value as the steak and beef fried rice was only 58,,,,some consider expensive but i sonsider a steal vs Mortons and the Cut.

“Good go-to place for locals!”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Nice local seafood and stir-fry dishes. Don't miss out their beef steaks! You'll need a car or cab to access the restaurant. Relaxed dress code...

“Great seafood at a great price”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

Good place to go with a group. Looks pretty basic, tucked away on a backstreet opposite a row of workshops, but fantastic fresh food - try the crab, any way you like it! Good value and always busy. Very informal and laid-back.
