Do not go to dine there. Not because of money. I used to spend sin$200 per head for many years. I ordered the live fish without asking the price but was totally disappointed and saw the fish still swimming in the tank. They used to force customers to order a lot, otherwise you will be the last table to be... More

This is a uniquely Singaporean experience. Eating on the street in he colourful and atmospheric Gaylang district. The Restaurent ambiance is buzzing. There is no menu as such. You sample the restaurent's 'signature' dishes, culminating with crab, cooked in glass noodles. The glass noodle, has absorbed the flavor of the crab. It's wonderful. If you had one night in Singapore... More

It may be fashionable to go to a place recommended by Anthony Bourdain but he doesn't have a clue in this case. Awful smell in the air. Wet dishes and cutlery, it's like sitting on the roadside for food that is very ordinary for Singapore ... Staff are disinterested. An uncomfortable eating experience. Don't just go to a hawker centre... More

Best bee hoon (chilli crab noodles) I ever had, in pretty commonplace surroundings. Glad I had it, superb, but really really expensive - can't remember I think about US$300 for two people, in Singapore. That was about 10 years ago. Go once.

Steam fish overcooked cost at Singapore $150 is more like a fish cooked in a third rate Restaurant in Hong Kong but then it would have costed $15. For the crab with fried rice noodle... the shell is huge but the crab meat inside has shrinked to less than half of the original size. I suspect this is due to... More

It's gonna be our first and last visit. When we arrived, we requested for menu and realised there was none. The staff seemed impatient when we asked what was available. Ordered otah, scallops, vegetables and the crab bee hoon. Waited more than 45 mins for the crab bee hoon to be finally served. While waiting, overheard from the next table... More

If you love seafood and into garlic then this is the place that you have to visit. Singaporean people called it "die die must try" You will get all the freshest seafood .. Awesome food.. Price not cheap but its worth every penny.. Don't expect to dine in a high class restaurant. This place is mainly for seafood lover ..... More

Ihaven't got much expectations though the place was widely acclaimed on local blogs. We went there just being around (walking to Joo Ching) I have expected seafood, but ended up eating duck with rice - simple, delicious food. Lot of people just come, eat & go. Staff is not even able to keep up (e.g they offered drinks when we... More

Whatever Anthony Bourdain may have experienced years ago, this Eating House is no longer a dining destination, although the crab beehoon is still well prepared and tasty. The ambiance is ghastly even by coffee shop standards - garish strip lighting, beaten up plastic furniture/cutlery, staff (presumably) sleeping on the premises, dirt and jumbled goods everywhere, and a general feeling of...

Staying in Geylang

Neighbourhood Profile
Geylang
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city centre, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colourful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
