What a great night! From the moment we arrived at this huge outdoor restaurant, which is reminiscent of the seafood halls on the beaches of Bali and Thailand it was non stop yum! From the salt fish soup to the chilli crab, every bite was delicious. The service was quick and friendly and atmosphere was celebratory. We'll be back!

Great and big area to hold at least more than hundred guests, although the air-conditioned area is smaller which is located in the building. But the big open area is nice and airy. Foods are good, Chili Crab,Seafood Kway Tiao and the Roasted Chicken are delicious. Their service was swift and attentive. Reservation is necessary during weekend. They have also... More

For the best crab - chilli or black pepper. Also their other dishes are superb - there's a reason why locals come here and there's no parking!

Delicious, authentic seafood without the markups or unnecessary fanciness of bigger seafood chains. Had chilli crab and man tous, baby squid, sambal kangkong, Hong Kong Style steamed sea bass and seafood mee goreng. All very very tasty.

Hua Yu Wee Seafood is probably the last remaining seafront seafood restaurant still standing in Singapore. The rest have all closed down or relocated elsewhere. Even the sea has moved away due to reclamation works. The sea is now at least 1 km away, with the East Coast Expressway in between on reclaimed land. Few years down the road, Bayshore... More

I have been here several times but stopped because of the wide food choices in Singapore. However I was pleasantly reminded of their excellent seafood at my last visit. A must try is the fried baby squid and of course the chilli and black pepper crabs. The service has improved tremendously since I last visited although it would help to... More

Brought some overseas friends there yesterday. Valet was quick to help park the car. The restaurant was very very crowded and over filled both indoors and outdoors dining areas. Although I placed a reservation 3 days earlier, there was nothing reserved and 2 other parties were in the same predicament. The staff was visibly overwhelmed.... Finally got a table after... More

We had this practice of going for crabs during cny. This year we chose Hua Yu Wee seafood restaurant. It does not disappointed us. Though it served set menu during cny the staff is flexible to change items for us if you wish to swop or change the dish. As it is cny, the restuarant is packed with customers, so... More
