Food good but not the service

Visited JE branch last Sunday.
Food is definitely good. However, the service must improve.
Arrived at about 6.35pm. Ordered at about 6.45pm but waited till 7.20pm food not delivered. Those who came before us already had most of their dishes. There is mix up in the kitchen as told.
One of the staff promises something to try to pacify but it was not delivered as the manager had other idea. If not, it will be a good place to visit again.
May visit other outlet.

Crab Bee Hoon

Best Crab Bee Hoon

This restaurant serves the absolute best Crab Bee Hoon in Singapore. Such great presentation of the dish too! Ask for female crab if you enjoy luscious orange roe.

I also tried the Chilli Crab, Coffee Pork Ribs and Cereal Prawns which did not disappoint.

The only complaint I have is that the menu did not state the prices which made deciding what to order a little bit of a hassle.

Note: Uncle Leong and Melben are both owned by the same family. Also, check out the adorable pet rainbow crabs in store!

a restaurant with no heart for its customers

While the food was decent, the entire experience was ruined by what i can only imagine as an organisation that is purely driven by profit with no heart for its customers. This evening was extremely warm and we requested for an indoor table as we had 2 young children with us. There were 5 of us, There were a few empty tables but we were told that those were reserved for larger groups. While tables outdoors were available too, we were told to wait till a smaller table became available. It was only after we plead with the wait staff to give us a place to feed the children that we were finally shown to a table outdoors with the promise that we would be moved once an indoor table became available. This never happened. Instead the big tables indoors went to a group of 2 and another of 5. I can only put down this preferential treatment to the fact that we did not order any of their expensive dishes, as we were told to place our order before being assigned a seat. As avid a seafood fan as i am, i will be most reluctant to visit this restaurant again or recommend it to anyone.

Food is so-so and long waiting time

Was at Uncle Leong 3 weekends ago on a Saturday. There was a very long wait, around 40 minutes. When we got our table, they told us there is another 30 minutes to wait for the dishes after we order.

The food arrived - we ordered chilli crab - and it was not very good. The other dishes were also not very tasty.

It wasn't very cheap and the waiting time is horrendous. Service is also not good.

Will not come here again.

Rather Disappointing

First of all, it was a big surprise that nothing on their menu has a price. Should have taken that as a warning ... obviously, at the end, the bill came up rather expensive.

Food quality was bad ... crab bee hoon was totally amateur. If you rate Melben a 8-9 for their signature bee hoon, Uncle Leong is a far 1-2.

Service is decent though, and overall ambience is decent.
