Good food and great service

Chilli Crab: ive not eaten such a meaty crab! the crab tasted fresh and i enjoyed it thoroughly. the sauce goes well with the fried mantous too! yumm yum.

Braised Spinach Tofu: this tasted fine, except that the taste of the spinach isnt strong enough for me

Sauteed Dou Miao: great! this is a light accompaniment to the chilli crab

Wok Fried Creamy Custard Prawns: this is one of their specialties, and it tasted fine though it appeared quite oily. we were afraid it would taste too creamy at first, but it didnt turn out so overpowering afterall. i just find it pretty wasteful to cook live prawns this way, because the freshness of the prawns was masked by the strong flavours.

Drunken Prawns with Hua Diao Wine & Herbs: fantastic! i think live prawns should be cooked this way. the sauce is actually more like a soup base, and it really carried out the freshness of the prawns. you can drink the sauce as if you ordered herbal soup.

Service: this is a review from my two visits to red house, although i bought takeaway at the first time. the service is attentive and prompt. plates were changed frequently and my teacup was topped up quite often. the waiter who overheard our discussion on the prawns earlier, checked with us if they were indeed too creamy for our liking. when we were done with our first two dishes, i heard the waiter instructing the kitchen through his headset, to hurry and serve up our chilli crab. after we were done eating, they cleared the messy plates, cleaned the table, provided more fresh wet tissues without our asking, and topped up our teas.

Overall: this is a place you'd want to visit for a crab feast at a casual and comfortable place - we sat at one of the tables outside, and enjoyed a slight breeze. the commendable service and good food make me want to return for more. i will definitely be back.

Awful Service, Awful Food, Awful Price

We had some out-of-town guests for a few days and were walking along Robertson Quay to select a restaurant.

The foreign guests like seafood and chose this restaurant.  What a mistake !

Service

The waiter was extremely rude.  At first he did not want to let us sit at an outside table as it was too

overpriced tourist restaurant

tourist seem to love this place. i hardly see any asians here. why? coz they are all at jumbo where you get better food at cheaper prices. its quite funny to see them mark up their prices above jumbo like they are better then them. better at attracting tourists probably.

Serious chair malfunction!

I can forgive mediocre food, but I can't forgive poor service. I was eating at this outlet a few Saturdays ago with my extended family. Midway through the dinner, the chair which my 63-year-old uncle was sitting on suddenly gave way without any warning. He crashed to the ground! After we had helped

Good chili crab

Good food, service could be better but in line with most restaurant on Robertson Quay (somewhat clueless waiters as usual..).

Definitely worth a visit for the chili crab.
