“Service with 933”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

No doubt about the price on the seafood paid, however the service we had was terrible. Rice wasn't coming until we are halfway done and our fish was wrongly cooked and never came in the end. We finished all other dishes and the fish was no where to be seen.

Food taste was so so, wouldn't say it is really that fantastic but for the price paid, can't complain too much either.

Would consider trying another restaurant next time.

“Don't worry, it's halal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

one of my friends told that this restaurant is definitely halal food and has been labeled as 'halal' by local halal organization in Indonesia (MUI). However, one rule in the MUI says that the owner not only have to keep the ingredients as halal but also the habit. The visitors are not allowed to bring something not halal (like alcohol) to the restaurant and golden prawn already give up for that. Golden prawn says that they cannot control the visitors to not bring alcoholic drink as there are so many of them. Then golden prawn giving up the certificate.

However, the food was so-so. Not the best one but not terrible though. It's place for you looking for seafood dishes (must try the gonggong), but I prefer cook myself rather eat here. It just ordinary. But it's halal

“Nice and cheap inclusions of the day tour”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

The food are okay, and freshly prepared, however, it seems like they are holding back, as we got our lunch as a packaged tour deal. The crabs are too slim, haha, like me, and the kangkong are too hottttttt
Probably should ask them to cook special Singaporean styles.

“Food is good, can't expect much about the service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

It's really a happening place for seafood lunch with a large group of friends. The food is nice - sort of a reminiscent of kampung-style and there's more than enough for everyone. Everything is fresh esp the prawns and fish. Depending on the time of day, service can be rather slow if having to jostle with the lunch time crowd.
