The white pepper crab is the best seller but you get a lot of pretty decent seafood options here at No Signboard Seafood. They serve really fresh and succulent prawns each time we order and the chili crabs is a must-try, too. They have several branches depending on your choice of ambiance, but you get the feel of "by-the-sea-side" dining... More

Went for dinner last night to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Have eaten here many times over the years, always enjoyed it, and is one of my go to places when in Singapore. We had the house special fried rice.... what have you done to it? It tasted bitter, almost bleach like. The sweet and sour pork had way too much... More

Nothing wrong with the food - clearly well liked by locals. However it did feel like a fast food restaurant without the fast food prices. Not a place to go to if you are not a shellfish fan! Served the red wine straight out of the fridge - which actually turned out to be a good idea as it was... More

This "highly recommended" restaurant is what I would call a typical tourist trap. The staff is so rude, it's almost funny. They clearly don't like their job. But that would be ok, if the food made up for it. You've probably guessed by now that it didn't. The signature dish, Spice Crab, is what it says on the tin. Messy,... More

We booked to dine here. When we arrived the staff were brusque and indifferent. Just short of being rude. When I said I had booked the wait person waved me to the tattered outside menu. I have no idea why. She appeared unwilling to give me the clients menu. The first table we were shown to was behind a pylon.... More

Big night out, slap up dinners only (with prices to match)! Lots of family celebrations, one or two 'formal' business groups, people dressed up accordingly. Wide ranging menu, we sought out the restaurant based on its reputation for chilli crab - which was quite good (in particular the sauce, the best part of the dish) and better than a couple... More

Excellent seafood, especially its outstanding White Pepper Crab (ask for Sri Lankan crab instead, it is equally tasty and local to Asia!- Less $$). Another you can try is the prawns with oat flakes. Yummy! You can choose ala carte or set meals if you are unsure. But my suggestion is always to go ala carte and order what you... More

We were a group of 7 colleagues from different countries who looked for chili and black pepper crab dishes in Singapore. We went to this restaurant. We ordered a few dishes and even though we wanted to order black pepper crab they didn't have ( weird for a crab restaurant). We had to order one Australia snow crab in white... More

We decided to escape from the confines of our Sentosa hotel restaurants and venture into the Esplanade waterfront and what a great decision it was. The restaurant had half filled with customers soon after 6.30, and all of them appeared Singaporean locals. Not a tourist in sight. Yet the crab dishes were clearly priced for tourists. We chose a Canadian... More

Chuckle all you may, but this unusual name for a restaurant was concocted by the patrons of No Signboard Seafood themselves. Founded in 1981, it is now known island-wide for its creative and original recipes.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
