This restaurant is selling the crab $70 per kg, even more exp than those famous crab restaurant such Eng Seng, Uncle Leong, Jumbo etc. strongly feel that they are anyhow chopping ppl. The attitude of red tail man really pissed me off, however the asam laksa is really hojiak.

Had the worst worst dinner ever!!!
 
 We went to these place to hold farewell dinner but were pissed off by their (only the supervisor) service's attitude. When arrived there 1 guy (think supervisor) served us & asked about the rest of my people as we booked 2 tables over there. When we are ready to order foods, he keeps telling us that we have booked 2 tables so our minimum spending must at least $240/-!!! & keep telling us that we have to understand their situation as they are always packed with people, what an arrogant man!! We waited nearly 30 minutes for him to come over to take order... Seems like he's the only person that's can take order.... While ordering, he keeps repeating that sentence 'need to spend at least $240/- ...... must understand their situation...'
 
 While ordering, we told him that we wanted small portion but he keeps telling us that no enough & he will arrange for us.. keeps asking us whether wants to order fish/crabs....
 
 After we finished & make payment, that supervisor din even apologised when he knocked on my friend!!!
 
 THIS WILL BE MY LAST LAST TIME TO PATRONIZE THIS RESTAURANT!!!!

Friend recommended this place to us and we travelled there one peak hour weekday.  Parking was horrible and this area, although in Singapore feels like another part of the world, messy, very crowded,  foreigners milling around and compacted into a small area next to a small car park.

Food:  We ordered the fried bean curd with filling, penang fried kway teow and the hokkien mee.  The fried bean curd was powdery and nor well fried,  miserable amounts of filling.  The hokkien mee (soup) lacked the pork flavour and it was only spicey, as all Penang hokkien mee are but lacking the robust taste of prawn and pork.  The only good dish I ate was the Penang fried kway teow and I think that, by being healthy, they fried it with a mix of vegetable oil (cheaper) and pork lard.   Enough garlic and chili made it taste with adequate fire and stir frying.

Value:  Expensive because of the poor ambience and above kopitiam prices.

Ambience:  We sat outside next to the five foot way and road, on a cool night comfortable by would be better inside (was the aircon working properly??).  

Service:  A mohawk-hair-cut man with hair stained red took the order and he was in a hurry and gangster like, which describes the happenings in Geylang - all in a hurry to make money, stay away from the police and hewn in a rough manner.
