ordered delivery - drawn by the good website, diverse menu and because they will bring a credit card machine to your door for payment. we made our selections and called up. the conversation was painful. first i had to spell and re spell my details again and again. i really suggest the phone operator take orders while standing somewhere he can hear. next disappointment: several of the dishes we wanted to have were not available. third disappointment: it took so long for the food to arrive we nearly gave up hope it would come at all. but when it did arrive it was warm at least. the food was so-so, but not worth the headache of the ordering and slow delivery.

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.

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.

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....
