Seafood is fresh yet the cooking method spoil the freshness of the ingredients.
Bamboo clam were pre-cooked before hand, warm when served.
White pepper crab lack depth and fragrance in taste with poor plating.
Staffs has poor knowledge of food. We ordered the Prawn with Vermicelli, staff mention that it's gonna be wet. We asked if it's fried with black sauce and he mention yes. When the dish arrive, it's actually in starchy clear soup broth with garlic and chilli padi.
And they tried serving us tea in a cup with crack line. Overall, it's a bad dining experience for the price that we've paid.
I have hardly seen such a bad quality at high price since a long time. I wonder what would Gordon Ramsay say if he ended up dining at No Signboard instead of Katong Laksa ? I happen to book a table together with my wife last night, I intended to give her a surprise.. well guess what, it was surprisingly bad!
Among the worst dishes were fishy butter prawns $28 (I dont know where they got them from but in food courts you would definitely get better ones. They were not even cleaned the way restaurants would do) in addition over-cooked Yee-Fu Noodles and old fried baby gailan vegetables.
The service could barely speak english and had not training in service nor motivation to maintain minimum service standards. Not even a simple gesture to ask if food was all right or not... they simply didnt seem to care much about what customers thought about their services and food.
I am not surprised that the restaurant was half empty and that most of tables were occupied by tourists (most likely first timers in Singapore) I really pity them, what a waste of money and bad experience they must have had!
No signboard is located alongside East Coast so having dinner there is a pleasure as your surroundings is accompanied by the breeze. Their signature white pepper crab is rather good but I find the meal rather expensive.
THis place at East Coast Seafood centre looks newly renovated with nice tables and chairs (with nets). Menu comes in a nice book. We order pork ribs, chilli crab, tau hu speciality and braised noodles (birthday noodles). Food was served fairly quickly after order. You do not get the crowd like Jumbo which is quite nice. The pork rib is tender. Tau hu speciality comes with seafood in the hole dugged in the tau hu. It was delicious. Chilli crab is good. Crab meat is thick and sweet. The chilli sauce is unique though like chilli paste. It is not those fried with eggs and garlic. Noodles was so - so. could be better. Enjoyed the meal.
