One of the best black pepper crabs in Singapore

My brother-in-law's FAVOURITE haunt for Black Pepper Crabs - Ban Leong Seafood tze char at Casuarina.   I must agree the crab is one of the BIGGEST and FRESHEST in Singapore! Other must-try dishes - cereal prawn, chicken with prawn paste.  Good spacious coffee shop for family to enjoy meal time together!

Does not live up to the hype?

Food was salty for most of the dishes and the crab was a disappointment. The sauce had too much cornflour and was too sticky, and you guessed it ...salty. It looked quite small for a 1kg, the meat was difficult to get off and the cost was 45. The prawn paste in the chicken wings was barely there. Pork ribs tasted ok but was slightly bland.

Food tried: Chilli crab + mantou, Fried prawn paste chicken wings, pork ribs, claypot tofu, chilli kang kong

no transparent price on menu! felt cheated

I came abt a month before for 2 pax, and I ordered vegetables small at $6, and chicken prawn paste for $6. Knowing that it is affordable, I brought my parents here. However, I asked for small veggies, they said don't have $6 but $8 is small! I asked for chicken wings, they said min is $8! I was so surprised and mentioned that how can the pricing different over a month! No one give me an explanation! They should be transparent on the menu pricing! If not there's like chance we shld complain to Case.

Worse attitude from the outrageously fierce lady boss !

Have been dining at this restaurant for a long while. Food is reasonably priced and gd but the service attitude from the staffs and worse, the outrageously fierce lady boss are enough for me to boycott it! 


I was happily ordering my take-away and honestly very looking fwd to it eventhough it will take abt 45mins for the food. The staff submitted my order but yet to weigh the crab hence payment was not settled yet. Decided my mom might love to try the beef hor fun hence wanted to add in. The staff looks really frighten n refused to add in for me. I asked to talk to this lady boss and true enough, now I understd why all her staffs freak out! She actually yelled at me, with the loudest possible voice That it is NOT possible to add in the order and if I insisted, she will draw another order that means I have to wait another round of 40mins! This is most absurb! N to think I am actually paying food to get a lashing just because I wanted to add order and pay more??! 

In view of this attitude issue, I will not recommend my friends or family there. I believe overall food and service 
makes the overall good feel and this is not...believe there are similar restaurants out there whereby I can enjoy the food and not have to go through what I have, and that makes a great rating of a restaurant!
Medium-sized black pepper crab.

Quarrelling Staff Ruined Dinner

After much research and comparison, I had decided to invite my friends for dinner here. Was looking so much to the "freshest crab...", delicious fried mee sua, fresh steamed red snapper....As soon as I sat down, the rackus began and the was a shouting match between a staff and one of the owners of the place. It completely ruined my celebrative night! Luckily the food kind of made up for it. But had observed and had concluded that there's some underlying "bad blood" going on as the was kind of a starting match going on. Well, the food is not bad but not fantastic that I will go back again. I don't pay money to subject my guests and myself to internal political issues.
