Chinese New Year Menu Review

I had the opportunity to preview the new year's menu for Quayside Seafood Restaurant. A staple at Clark Quay since 2002, the place is popular with both tourists and locals, offering "live" seafood by the pier.

We started with the Prosperous Pipa Tofu, fried tofu with crunchy bits within.

This was followed by the Deep Fried Prosperous Fresh Oysters in Cantonese Bi Fung Tang style. Basically, the oysters were fried and served on a half shell. Looks innocuous until you bite into the chili padi, which will wake your palette up.

It is the new year after all and what other way to celebrate its entrance than with the Lou hei Yu Sheng. Consisting of lobster, tuna, salmon, conch and sea urchin, this is one rich with ingredients.

Another lunar new year staple would be the Whole Lobster and Seafood Treasures Pen Cai. This has to be one of the better value pen cais around, costing approximately $50+ per person (min 6 diners) but with a whole lobster, 10 head abalones, large clams, scallops, dried oysters, Alaskan crab claws, king prawns, Garoupa, South African spikes sea cucumber and a whole chicken, it does not get better than that.

Meanwhile, the Baked Turbot Fish with Whole Garlic in Claypot offers tasty hearty fish with a little "heatiness" caused by the ginger.

The restaurant does offer some land animals as well, and one example of that is the Baked Rack of Lamb. Grass fed, it is tenderized and does not have a gamy after taste to it.

For the staple item we had the Claypot Prawns with Tang Hoon. With good wok hei, this is a must try here.

For desserts, ended with something light. The Chilled Lemongrass Jelly did a good job of providing a light finish to the heavy meal.

Overall, a hearty experience meant to be shared with the family.

Quayside's sambal sotong and prawns!

Good seafood, nice location, romantic dinner for under $100!

Ok, I've eaten here in the past, and like some old reviews from a couple years ago suggest, it was hit and miss (though I think the reviews are still too harsh). That said, I just recently went here with my wife...and we had a fabulous meal! Sambal prawns, sotong, cereal prawns, seafood fried rice, and two drinks. We did it all for...wait for it: UNDER $100! Yes, you read that correctly. The tastes were really nice, the prawns were fresh and mixed with sambal, were just perfect...(my mouth is watering now as I type this!) Anyway, maybe they changed management or their menu since the old reviews, but we had a really nice time and good food...I would honestly recommend it to friends and family.

Worst experience in Singapore

Average food, definitely not worth the price, S$30 for a fried rice, S$10 for a prawn! Very poor service especially from the higher management, very rude, first time I see staff yelling at clients! I do not recommend this restaurant at all.

Good atmosphere but....

We took my ex-boss who was visiting from Australia here for a nice dinner. However, despite the rather expensive fare, the quality and flavour were only passable.

We ordered to begin with, two bamboo clams ($10 each) in garlic sauce, nice but nothing special.

We then had their special prawn platter ($35 for 12 prawns served two ways) which i am not sure if it was supposed to be cereal prawns plus prawn fritters in mayonaise but the "cereal" prawns were so soggy with only a thin pathetic coating on it. The prawns were fresh and big but the whole dish was nothing special.

We also ordered the Pineapple rice which was not bad, half a duck ($30) with fruit salad. This dish was ok except the fruit salad was a miserable pile in the corner of chopped strawberries and mango. It was served with a mango sauce. The duck was quite meaty I have to say though and it was roasted then fried to give a crisp skin.

We also had scallops with brocolli ($16) which was quite nice but nothing special.

With two beers and a wine, the bill came up to $180 nett.

Was a nice atmosphere but I hardly think I would be back it was not very memorable. The service was good to begin with but after the last dish arrived we were quickly forgotten. Plates were not changed, water was not refilled, they did not check if everything was ok or offer any desserts/ coffee. Only when they wanted the table did they ask if they could bring anything else. I wonder about their service star ...
