i have neen eating in this restaurant for many years, the boss himself is the chief. it's a good cantonese family own restaurant. the chief has been cooking since 1950... however, like all classic family own restaurant, food will be good service will take a second place... never the less value for money

Food are authentic but cleanliness and hygiene is an issue with me at this restaurant. We have dined a few times there are not impressed with their cleanliness and hygiene, that's why we stop going there anymore.

It was our first time at this restaurant with my family but my parents have been coming to this restaurant for over 25 years! They're best known for hairy crabs, especially during the season. The hairy crabs come from a specific location in Shanghai and the crabs all come with a tag to certify where they've come from. We had... More

I enjoyed the entire meal at capital. Sharks fin soup was very good as were the hairy crabs. Not easy to eat but good. Best to go there with a local but I would not be afraid to go as a tourist. I will go back.

Capital Restaurant is a well-known establishment in Singapore for hairy crabs. We were not disappointed when we dined here last night. The crabs were wonderfully done; the soft & creamy roe which was the highlight, was simply put of this world.

Went to this restaurant specifically for the hairy crabs! It's a very simple restaurant with typical local Chinese decor. Service is ok but you don't got to such places for service just purely the food. Their speciality is hairy crabs from China, however they have other specials on their menu like quail that is grilled. Crabs range from SGD20 per... More

We walked into this very spare establishment by chance, after wandering around fully booked Chinatown restaurants. Very authentic. No English spoken! Fortunately at the nearby table was a group of helpful English-speaking ladies who ordered for us and entertained us with travelling tips and trips. We had a gorgeous Good Luck dinner consisting of a large bowl filled to the... More

The food here is generally good, but apparently their specialty is hairy crabs, which they serve year-round - hope to try that next!
