Not to many tourists, more Locals. Try the spicy crabs, buttered prawns and other delicious Seafood. The prices are ok considering the selection! We will return.

This restaurant serves very good and varied food. May be little expensive given the quality of the food, the ambiance and setting of the restaurant. Its crowded at night and paring may be a problem also. Parking is a problem any ware in Gaylang during evening anyway

Dined here over Christmas. Had the Chilly Mud Crab. It was excellent. The staff were very efficient and willing to help. The food was great. Would recommend this restaurant for anyone wanting an authentic Chinese Singaporean seafood experience.

Staying in Geylang

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
