“Chilli crabs to die for!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

A few minutes from Emirates Mall, in the Barsha area - well worth a visit if you are in the mood for Singapore Chilli Crabs The Nasi Goreng was very tastey and the service was excellent .
Would have killed for a cold beer - but they are not licenced.

“Great fresh crab!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

After a day of off-roading in Dubai, a friend recommended this place for dinner. The seafood was really good. The food kinda took a while to finish but when the waiter served us the huge crabs, they were really good. The owner also saw how delighted we were with the quality then he offered us commentary desert. Keep in mind you will get your hands messy but they do provide a small bowl of water and lemon for your fingers. Also, to me, the mild spicy was pretty spicy so if your not a fan of spicy sauces, make sure you don't order the spicy.

“Asian Fusion in Duibai”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

I have been to this restaurant occasionally but order take out more often.

The restaurant is pretty small...

Not that impressive but I do like the Hainanese chicken rice, Singapore chillie crab, tofu egg plant sambal and duck noodle soup.....

The salt and pepper prawn is good as well....

The Pla Sam Rod is a bit disappointing though but that's not an easy dish to prepare....

I will continue to order take out from this place....

“Delicious Asian food in Dubai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

I discovered this great little restaurant tucked away in Al Barsha Dubai. So easy to get to as we caught the metro to Sharaf DG station and it's just a couple of minutes walk away. I loved the Thai green chicken curry, my husband made a mess & was raving about the Singapore Chili Crab, and my daughter loved the Nasi Goreng. Portions were good size & staff were friendly. Would definately recommed for those that like authentic asian food.
