As far as food goes, I have not been anywhere that serves as a good a bowl of laksa as 328 Katong Laksa. Like the fact that they cut the noodles, so it can be eaten with a spoon (I am not so good with chopsticks). The soup is AMAZING. Best laksa soup there is in my opinion. 
Unfortunately, it is usually very crowded and noisy. The service is not very good, especially because I don't speak Chinese. The food takes a really long time to come (in fact I've only had this kind of waiting period in really fancy restaurants where everything else is good except for the food, which I usually do not like). 
So go there for the food but not for much else.

ame place sharing two shoplots... same bad food... same rude employees. 4.50 for a bowl of carbo with a thin soup base and a straggling of ingredients that would make you weep when you finally find something other than strands of noodles. will never go again.

The food: Merely passable in the ultra-competitive world of Katong Laksas; Broth was bland and the coconut milk used was diluted. Even adding dollops of the chili paste did not help. Cockles a tad overcooked but hey, at least they're there!

Value for money: I ordered the medium-sized bowl and here's what I got: a hearty serving of noodles (definitely a plus), a couple of prawns (the usual), and 5 cockles. Yes, exactly five.

Service: Fast and efficient. Some shouting is required to get the attention of the waitstaff.

Other comments: Having been to the Katong laksa store across the street (now relocated to Roxy Square), it's easy to tell which one's the original (*hint* it's not 326...). I don't truly understand why this place is so crowded, but if I had to hazard a guess it's probably because of:

(a) Herd mentality: so popular ah, go la!
(b) Celeb power: the walls of the stall are lined with photos of 326 Laksa's shrewd owner and multiple celebrities.
(c) Killer marketing: 326 Laksa constantly invites bloggers and other online entities to help spread the gospel.

The Verdict: Definitely a no go. Watery broth, skimpy ingredients mean that better laksa options abound.

Better Alternatives: Try the Claypot Laksa at Alexandra Village or Janggut Laksa at Queensway Shopping Centre.
