Average food and overpriced

The food taste is average but think it's overpriced. The waitresses doesn't seem happy to serve customer. It's a definite first n last visit to this restuarant.

I have never tasted an awful crab until house of seafood. Service sucks but good marketing I must say. I was cheated in buying the groupo

Worst seafood restaurant in singapore

1. Poor service. Waitress served as though she has not eaten for days, and not been paid or something. 2. Lousy environment. Very noisy, several chairs were torn. Filthy toilets. Can see houseflies around. Quite a number of glass plates were chipped off badly. 3. Poor quality of food. Bamboo clams were small, over-cooked and accompanying tang hoon was a tad tough. 4. Signature Crab meat had a powdery, soggy texture (suspect unfresh) yet the waiter rebuked that it's live crabs which were cooked. She challenged us to take a look. Not sure what's the point. Fact is meat is powdery/soggy. The texture doesn't lie right? In additional, the crab's shell is black! Has anyone seen that before? Waiter says the crab is from what under the stones so it's black! Acceptable excuse? 5. Bad representation of Top SMEs. Overall, the short summary above doesn't fit in as a Top SMEs awardee (In terms of service, environment, down to the quality of plates).

Supposed to look forward to a pleasant wedding anniversary dinner with dear hubby but turned out was our 1st and will be last visit to this place. We love chillie & pepper crab. Will make up for this at another 100% sure good place.

House of Seafood chillie crab is really below expectation. Both crab meat and gravy were disappointing!! The fried tofu with XO sauce was OK. Ordered the silver fish fried rice but had quite alot of salted fish in it as well. The menu showed salted fish fried rice as another dish order. Didnt like the v salted fish taste tog with silver fish in my rice. Would not order if knew they mixed these tog.

There was a very weird smell (like urine smell) in all the dishes and utensils. Dont understand why??? 1st unpleasant experience of this !!
